Is anyone on Planet Earth even mildly shocked that Bernie Sanders is a Castro apologist?
Is there a Marxist tin-pot dictator the guy won’t make excuses for?
Bernie is more than happy to overlook the bloodthirsty element of the Castro regime because like any good Marxist will tell you, you can’t have a Glorious Socialist Omelet without cracking a few thousand eggs.
Sure, Castro murdered thousands. So what? He also launched a literacy program!!!
Sure, the Soviets starved millions. But by golly, those chandeliers in their subway stations were beautiful!
Yeah, and the parks in Nazi Germany were manicured visions of tranquility.
And Mussolini made the trains run on time.
More than a hundred million dead thanks to the Glorious Communist Revolution. The Soviets, the Red Chinese, the Khmer Rouge, North Korea, Chavez, Castro, Ortega — are we now to add the American Democrat Party?
If we still taught history in public schools, maybe the fools feeling the Bern would have learned that the promise of Utopia and “power to the people” is the biggest and deadliest lie ever perpetrated on the human race.
And yet most of them don’t know. Most of them believe the lie.
Though, there are some among them who know it’s a lie and they’re cool with that.
Bernie can claim that he is “very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba.” But unless he is as ignorant and naïve as his “real socialism has never been tried” followers, he knows that inherent in a Marxist Revolution is its authoritarian nature.
The Democrats have been flirting with Communism for seventy-five years.
Bernie 2020 is the Democrats finally saying, “Listen, Communism. We’ve been flirting long enough. Let’s get it on!”
And while Bernie is doing his best to hide his inner Castro under a veneer of “I want us to be like Denmark,” his campaign surrogates aren’t trying to hide it in the least.
They thrill at the idea of a violent revolution with gulags, guillotines, and reeducation camps.
I said before Bernie’s “Revolution” isn’t cut from the same cloth of our own; it’s more the Robespierre variety. Or Castro. Or Lenin. Or Mao. Pick any totalitarian who seeks to control the people, and that is the Bernie Revolution.
As odious as it is to hear an American make excuses for someone like Fidel Castro, that isn’t what I find frightening. Truth is, there has been a communist-loving fringe in America since the Bolsheviks stormed the Winter Palace more than a century ago.
What is frightening to me is Bernie Sanders is the frontrunner for the Democrat nomination. And more frightening still is this embrace of Marxism is no longer the fringe.
It is the Democrat Party in 2020.
And despite a hundred million killed and several hundreds of millions more enslaved, there are currently millions of American citizens who are eager and willing to vote for their own enslavement.
