Newly Discovered Video Shows Bernie Sanders Praising Communist Butcher Fidel Castro

Much like the dupes and useful idiots who praised Adolf Hitler for building excellent roads, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders admired another brutal dictator, Cuban communist madman Fidel Castro, for providing education and heath care to the unwashed masses.

In a 1985 video interview discovered by CNS News, admitted anti-freedom socialist Bernie “The Red” Sanders is shown applauding Castro for imprisoning political dissidents having “totally transformed society” in Cuba.

“In 1961, [America] invaded Cuba, and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world,” said Sanders during an Aug. 8, 1985 interview on the CCTV Center for Media & Democracy’s Channel 17/ Town Meeting Television, Chittenden County’s local government access station.

“All 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 society,” he said.

“You know, not to say Fidel Castro and Cuba are perfect – they are certainly not – but just because Ronald Reagan dislikes these people does not mean to say the people in these nations feel the same way,” Sanders argued, while expressing how grateful he was that the people never rebelled against Castro.

Maybe someone in the leftstream media should ask the wild-eyed socialist if he still stands by these idiotic statements, and ask if the 74-year-old codger wants to “totally transform society” in America the way Castro has done in Cuba, which became nothing more than a third-world hell hole, and the few people who can afford a car are stuck still driving around in their 1950’s or 60’s American-made clunkers, the same cars they had before Castro arrived.

This man is a true nutjob, with apologies to all nutjobs. The fact that this anti-freedom, commie pinko has around a quarter or more Democrats seriously supporting this crazy crackpot speaks volumes of just how dumbed-down American society has become.
