THIS 1985 Bernie Sanders Comment On Cuba Exposes Him As A REAL DEAL Communist, Not Just Socialist
It seems that if you survive dozens of assassination attempts and outlive your enemies even ruthless despots can emerge as “benevolent” dictators, and perhaps have a communist loving progressive like then-Mayor Sanders gushing approvingly how you (Castro), “totally transformed society”, saying; “All the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed society.”
That assessment by Presidential candidate Sanders was made back in 1985, on the CCTV Center for Media & Democracy’s Channel 17/ Town Meeting Television, in which Sanders praised the murderous dictator. However by that convoluted logic why then not praise another charismatic dictator Benito Mussolini for having “the trains run on time”, which is obviously far more myth than reality.
As always far left progressives and in Bernie’s case “socialists” always attempt to rewrite history, thinking that perhaps time would cloud history and he would be able to sell his brand of “big government”.
So perhaps a quick history lesson is in order for all those Bernie disciples on the Castro Régime.
Documented deaths and disappearances resulting from Fidel Castro’s Cuban revolution has “confirmed” (after government show trials) 3,615 firing squad executions. Ernesto “Ché” Guevara, Castro’s chief enforcer and spokesmen once said; “To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is not unnecessary”.
In addition to the firing squad executions 1,253 extrajudicial killings have been attributed to the Castro regime...I guess however one can argue that Castro did indeed “transform" Cuba.
