Videos show Bernie Sanders praising bread lines, food rations, communists

The Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders calls himself a “Democratic Socialist,” which Steven Crowder says is just socialism with a check-box (watch his video below), but the Democratic candidate for president is a consistent voice against capitalism, praising communist Cuba, Fidel Castro and most recently, in a newly released clip: food rationing and bread lines.

“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death,” Sanders tells John Stossel in the 1985 clip.

The Libertarian Republic published the video with a dumbfounded responded: “The lack of logic here is astounding. In America and individual can buy a meal for under $2 if you’re not picky, and everywhere we go we are surrounded by stores stocked full of food. Free markets lead to abundance, controlled markets lead to shortages and rationing. This is common sense to anyone who isn’t a Marxist ideologue.”

Of course a libertarian would have such a response to a Karl Marx idea, one that only a nugget of Sanders’ lovefest with communism and Marxist regimes.

As Burlington, Vermont Mayor, Sanders openly praised Castro, the communists and criticizing Ronald Reagan’s administration: “They had forgotten that he educated their kids, gave them health care,” he said in the video, adding that the Castros had “totally transformed their society” but also qualifying his statement “You know, not to say that Fidel Castro or Cuba are perfect, they are certainly not.”

“In South Florida there are still open wounds among some exiles regarding socialism and communism. So please explain what is the difference between the socialism that you profess and the socialism in Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela,” Univision anchor María Elena Salinas asked.

Sanders attacked the failures of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the historical support for regime change towards brutal dictatorships.

Sanders, 74, may want just the Democratic Socialist label, but separating his support for communists, Marxists and Fascists will a new arena he may be asked to participate in to garner a place in the White House.
