Sanders doubles down on love for mass murderer/oppressor Fidel Castro.
Sanders Doubles Down on Cuba (Daybreak Insider)
Sanders said “When Fidel Castro first came into power … you know what he did? He initiated a major literacy program. It was a lot of folks in Cuba at that point who were illiterate and he formed the Literacy Brigade … and they went out and they helped people learn to read and write You know what? I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing” (Fox News).
From the Wall Street Journal: Cuba has gone from being one of the more advanced countries in the region in the mid-1950s to one of the most impoverished, and the reason is its economic socialism and political tyranny. The issue for voters today is what it says about Mr. Sanders that, even after so many years of cruel evidence, he still feels compelled to insist there is a silver lining in the Cuban revolution (WSJ).
From Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: Yeah, Bernie “truth is truth”, as u say, and the “truth” is that Fidel Castro was, from the 1st day he illegally took power, a ruthless murderer, a sadistic killer who stripped Cubans of all freedoms. Literacy programs were indoctrination. I lived it as a child. All lies (Twitter). From John Bolton: If @BernieSanders thinks Castro’s communist Cuba is not all bad, what does he have to say about Maduro? Praising the actions of a brutal dictator is abhorrent and unacceptable. Bernie is revealing the extent of his extremism (Twitter). From Kevin Williamson: Bernie Sanders complains that some criticism of the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is “unfair.” The Castro government lined up political dissidents and shot them. It tortured them. It weaponized the medical profession to torture and deform its critics. Its campaign of murder was extraordinary, its systematic suppression complete. Senator Sanders is utterly dedicated to the role of useful idiot, an unquestioning conveyer of Castro propaganda (National Review). From Sanders in 1985 “everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of 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 the society” (Newsweek). From Andy Ngo: There shouldn’t be any surprise that Bernie Sanders would sing praises to the Castro regime. Paid staffers on his campaign who were exposed advocating for revolutionary political violence & the killing of counter-revolutionaries were not only protected, but have remained on staff (Twitter).
