You might have heard about how Bernie Sanders praised dictator Fidel Castro.
It seems the “Democratic socialist” had plenty of nice things to say about the communist ruler.
Sanders claims to condemn “all authoritarian regimes,” but he went out of his way to praise Castro’s literacy agenda.
And he won’t take it back.
Really? The man was a communist who threatened America with nuclear missiles. But Sanders can see the silver lining that Castro taught some people how to read.
(In his communist re-education program!)
Well, Americans aren’t happy with his statements.
But somebody is. Guess who?
From Daily Wire:
Communist Cuba praised socialist Bernie Sanders, the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination for president, for his recent praise of the communist nation…
“Granma, the Communist Party newspaper, prominently displayed a report about Sanders and his praise of ‘some of the social programs implemented by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro,’”…
The newspaper then attacked Cuban Americans who had escaped the communist nation.
Man, oh, man. This ain’t great.
The state-controlled paper of communist Cuba put Sanders on the front page. They praised his recent statements about Castro.
They then went on to attack Cuban Americans who fled the terrible situation in Cuba. Nice.
Maybe if you’re a socialist-leaning college student, you’ll be happy about this. But not most Americans.
To this day, Cuba suffers under a communist regime. I’m sure all those people denied basic freedoms are happy about the literacy program, right?
(Come on, Bernie. Every first world country has a literacy program. Is that really worth praising Castro over?)
Anyone that escaped Cuba’s regime, including those in Florida, will not be quick to cast a ballot for Bernie.
Heck, anyone who learned about or lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis will be rethinking this candidate.
SHARE if you’re opposed to a President Bernie Sanders.
