Senator Bernie Sanders' call for socialism has resonated among many Americans, particularly young Americans. They've fallen prey to the idea of a paradise here on Earth where things are free and there's little want. But socialists never reveal what turns out to be their true agenda. Let's look at the kind of statements they used to gain power. You'll note that all of their slogans before gaining power bore little relation to the facts after they had power.
The latest edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured a segment wherein the network’s chief apologist for “democratic socialism” asked his first question regarding Sen. Bernie Sanders’ controversial support for the Castro dictatorship’s “Literacy Brigades”.
Toward the end of her Tuesday show on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell decided to echo Bernie Sanders and praise the state of communist Cuba, that "there's a lot of great things to say" about communist rule. After that, she questioned Michael Bloomberg's "really snarky tweets jumping on Sanders" for his fondness for Fidel Castro. She was more offended by that than Bernie's actual embrace of the dictator.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
Tuesday was the big night over on CBS where they would hold the final Democratic debate before the primaries South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states. And with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) occupying the frontrunner’s podium for the first time, one would think the host network would apply a little more scrutiny. But their pre-debate newscast on CBS Evening News completely skipped over the Senator’s recent controversy of praising the murderous regime of Fidel Castro, and his double down.
After Sen. Bernie Sanders doubled down on his past praise for aspects of the Communist regime of Cuba, Patricia Mazzei reported “Florida Democrats Try to Limit Harm From Sanders’s Castro Comments” in Tuesday’s New York Times. But the paper’s sudden concern about Sanders noting the high literacy rates under Fidel Castro’s dictatorship look hypocritical, considering how often Times reporters have embraced the factoid in defense of the island regime. That suggests this new concern is motivated more by fears of Trump than of communism.
The View co-host Joy Behar faced pushback from her liberal peers on Tuesday’s show, after she started defending Bernie Sanders comments praising Fidel Castro. However, some of her co-hosts shared her soft take towards the dictator in years past. After Barack Obama praised the dictator, Whoopi Goldberg defended the president's comments as “proper” and “diplomatic" because Cubans were "mourning" him. She also said that Cubans "grew up not thinking the Castro regime was bad."
In his desperation to defend 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders from criticism, on Tuesday, regular left-wing MSNBC pundit and Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude actually compared Fidel Castro’s violent Communist takeover of Cuba to the American Revolution. Glaude made the outrageous argument while trying to excuse the socialist Senator’s defense of Castro during a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday.
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
“Democratic socialist” and commie sympathizer Sen. Benie Sanders’ lead over the other Democratic 2020 nominees should terrify anyone who’s read a history book. Sadly, the enthusiasm shown for the Vermont Senator, especially in Hollywood, is evidence that many don’t know socialism leads to economic stagnation at best, and the horrors of the Soviet system, Maoist China and Castro’s Cuba at worst.
On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. However, after President Trump held a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in July of 2018, the same broadcasts devoted 34 minutes to excoriating the meeting – and that was just in the first half hour of the respective shows.
Univision anchor and hot-take machine Enrique Acevedo is facing self-inflicted backlash over his dismissal of Florida Hispanics’ refusal to embrace Bernie Sanders as a result of being “manipulated.” It all started when The View contributor and CNN analyst Ana Navarro weighed in on the potential damage that a Sanders candidacy would inflict on the remainder of the Florida ballot, which is to say that she is not at all down with the Sandernista Revolution. Acevedo then decided to jump in with an unfortunate quote-tweet of his own:
