Bernie Sanders seeks to ‘school’ us on the Castros and communist Cuba in his recent CBS “60 Minutes” interview…
FNC: Bernie Sanders defends Fidel Castro’s socialist Cuba: ‘Unfair to simply say everything is bad’
Sen. Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the Democrats’ presidential nomination, doubled down on his support for some of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s policies, saying in an interview that aired Sunday, “it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad.”
Speaking to CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, pointed to social welfare programs introduced under Castro’s regime that he described as redeeming, despite the communist dictator’s often repressive human-rights violations against Cubans.
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders told Anderson Cooper….
Makes it easier for them to sign the coerced confessions…
Breitbart: Voto Latino CEO: Dems Can ‘Kiss Florida Goodbye’ if Sanders Is Nominee … Oh, well, those ungrateful folks just don’t understand, do they? I guess they can thank the Castro brothers for being able to read the election ballots in Florida.
What’s going on in Bernie’s home state of Vermont with all his fellow well-to-do democrat-socialists planning to vote for him? Something wonderful … Something completely wonderful that pretty much reflects something Bernie’s hero Fidel Castro did when he and his commie clan took over Cuba…
John Klar: Oh Xusana! Racist property redistribution hits Vermont
Last year, Xusana Davis was appointed by Vermont governor Phil Scott as the state’s “first Racial Equity Executive Director.” Davis, formerly of New York City’s Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, applied for the job “on a whim” and was installed to “identify and address systemic racism in Vermont.”
The law labeling Vermont as systemically racist was also a whim, backed by no evidence aside from bald assertions that racial disparities in prison, land ownership, or school disciplinary actions reflect a disparity in treatment of people of color. The dangers of this false assumption are demonstrated in Xusana’s latest gambit: to “codify community engagement” by “considering racial and environmental justice in land use.”…
Xusana burst out the gate to use government regulations to institute racist wealth reallocation, in the form of transferring land and economic opportunities from whites to minorities, without evidence of wrongdoing….
Thomas Sowell cautioned about precisely such consequences in his 1999 book, The Quest for Cosmic Justice:
[W]hat is called “social justice” might more accurately be called anti-social justice, since what consistently gets ignored or dismissed are precisely the costs to society[.] … Not only does cosmic justice differ from traditional justice, and conflict with it, more momentously cosmic justice is irreconcilable with personal freedom based on the rule of law[.] … Merely the power to select beneficiaries is an enormous power, for it is also the power to select victims — and to reduce both to the role of supplicants of those who hold this power.
How are Vermont’s white people to respond to such attacks? They are allegedly guilty of implicit bias, which means they don’t even know what they did wrong. They are to be retrained by the benevolent government:
“[I]mplicit bias training” means training designed to help individuals identify and address unconscious associations, biases, and stereotypes that they hold about certain groups of people.
Make no mistake, if somebody like Bernie Sanders takes the White House totalitarian bullshit like what’s going on in his own state will be done across the United States. This, and much worse.
Bloomberg: Sanders Unveils $1.5 Trillion Plan for Free Universal Child Care: Bernie Sanders on Monday unveiled a $1.5 trillion proposal for free universal child care and pre-kindergarten programs that would be funded through a tax on “extreme wealth.”
Margaret Thatcher once said, “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” Before that happens and is realized, those who earned the money run out of their own money first…

Joe Concha: Chris Matthews faces calls for resignation after comparing Sanders victory to Nazi invasion
FNC: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews compares Sanders’ Nevada win to France’s fall to Nazis, draws calls for his firing
This shit is fucking hilarious! For the last few decades the democrats, libs/left, and the MSM have called every GOP POTUS and their administration and voters/supporters “Hitler” and “Nazis”. And for these last four years Chris Matthews and his network kin have been stridently and continually calling Trump/supporters/voters Hitler/Nazis, when they aren’t calling him/them racists and KKK. So, it matters now because they are making Nazi analogies with a democrat candidate?? And don’t give us the but ‘Bernie is Jewish’ angle. He is as anti-Israel as Jewish Hitler/Nazi supporter George Soros.
Stephen Kruiser: Chris Matthews Thinks Bernie Sanders Is Hitler and the Weekend Was Just Perfect
While it is truly disturbing that one of the two major political parties in America has just hit the gas while driving off of the socialist cliff, it’s also delightful political theater for the moment. Put another way: it’s all fun and games until someone gets an eye redistributed.
Bernie’s star turn has the entire Democratic establishment gulping handfuls of Xanax as they ponder a general election filled with ads that repeat the word “socialist” every third word or so, all funded by a decidedly capitalist campaign war chest.
Despite their protestations to the contrary, the members of the mainstream media are an integral part of the Democratic establishment. Many of them are acting out in an effort to prevent even more people from feeling the Bern.
A truly epic family feud has broken out over MSNBC, where Chris “Tingles” Matthews has become an ardent anti-Bernie voice. MSNBC isn’t just a left-leaning network, it’s decidedly progressive. That its most veteran host finds Sanders to be too far left is quite telling….
NBC News: Will Bernie Sanders’ long-ago praise of Socialist regimes hurt Democrats in November? If Sanders is the nominee, some Democrats worry Trump will hammer him on his long-buried words in defense of governments in Nicaragua, Cuba and the USSR … This from the same network that to this day bases anti-Trump ‘resistance’ on a covertly recorded and tactically timed release of a private conversation with one of its own reporters.
WAS IT OVER WHEN THE GERMANS BOMBED LAS VEGAS? Chris Matthews faces calls for resignation after comparing Sanders victory to Nazi invasion.
Comparing politicians and their supporters on the right to Nazis (and occasionally to North Koreans and the Khmer Rouge as a slight change up play) is what Matthews does on MSNBC. But it’s fun to watch the left freak out when he goes after one of their own for a change.
Update: Why is Anyone Surprised That Chris Matthews Went All Nazi Comparison About Bernie?
Townhall: AIPAC Issues Sharp Rebuke of Sanders For Skipping Conference
FNC: AIPAC blasts Sanders after 2020 frontrunner says he’ll skip conference
AIPAC wasted little time to respond to the public rebuke and called his comments an ill-informed and an “odious attack.” The pro-Israel lobby said Sanders never attended a conference, which is “evident in the outrageous comment.”
“Senator Sanders is insulting his very own colleagues and the millions of Americans who stand with Israel,” the statement read. “Truly shameful.”
Salon loves them some stealth pre-communism socialism morphing our republic into a ‘democracy’, but Bernie Sanders and his rabid supporters’ buck-naked revolution is scaring Salon’s writers…

JJ Sefton @ AoSHQ:
Now, their chickens are coming home to roost. Two or more generations lobotomized into hating the country and everything it stands for see Trump and his phenomenal success as a complete abnegation of everything they believe in, and the Democrat Establishment as either failures or sell-outs in their promises of both getting rid of him and delivering the long-promised, yet never-delivered Socialist “paradise on earth.”
It’s kind of fun to watch people like James Carville, Anderson Cooper and Chris Matthews sound almost – almost – Reaganesque in attacking Bernie Sanders as a crazy Communist who’ll do nothing but destroy the Democrat Party. Bloomberg did himself no favors with his performance in last week’s Las Vegas debate, except his attack on Communism/Socialism was to the point and dead on target. Make no mistake; in no way are any of the aforementioned imbued with any sense of patriotism or love of the country as founded, for if they did, they wouldn’t be liberals/Leftists. But it’s delicious to watch them actually attack Bernie Sanders for policies that they themselves have always supported, just never out in the open, or at the very least with a carefully phrased and crafted message to swindle the low information voter into supporting it. Hoisting themselves on their own petards, so to speak.
Yet, while we’re reveling in the Democrats ripping each other to pieces, one should never lose sight of the fact that Bernie Sanders might be a farshimmelt alta-kocker but his politics and beliefs are both abhorrent and extremely dangerous if he were to ever gain control of the levers of power. We barely survived Obama’s eight-year Reign of Error. The sobering point still remains that even after Bernie, if the DNC cannot steal the nomination from him again, gets beaten by Trump in the general, there are many more just like him. The so-called “moderates” aren’t going to jump ship to the GOP; they wull either be purged or drop the masks entirely and go hardcore Left.
And there are still millions of young people who are brain dead true believers, and an educational system that is brainwashing millions more right behind them. That is a recipe for disaster, no matter what Trump does in the next five years. G-d help us.
