As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Sanders Praises the Communist Chinese Leadership

Democratic voters, do you understand that this person is basically a communist?

How does someone like this get so close to the presidency? I don’t think he’ll get the nomination but, you know, he could.

From the Washington Examiner:

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the Chinese government’s anti-poverty programs in an answer to a question about tensions between the country and the United States during an interview aired Tuesday.

“They’re a country that vigorously protects their own interests,” the Vermont senator said in an interview with The Hill. “But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, okay? So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

  1. I think the ChiComs solution to extreme poverty among their citizens was just to kill them off.
    Poof! No more suffering.
    What’s a few million among a billion?

  2. “The Great Leap Forward” 1958-1962…”Cultural Revolution” 1966-1976.

    DOES ANYONE?! (ESPECIALLY THE IDIOT ‘DEMOCRATS’) READ FRACKING HISTORY ANYMORE???!!! :-(

    (…I was a Modern Chinese History student in college…)

  3. It’s interesting that whack job Sanders didn’t praise China’s “one-child” policy (1979-2014) while he was extolling the grand virtues of the Chinese government.

    The “one child” policy was exactly what it sounds like: the child in a second pregnancy was aborted per orders of the Chinese government. The one-child rule reduced population growth in the country of nearly 1.4 billion (estimated, 2017) by as much as 300 million people over its first 20 years. 300 HUNDRED MILLION.

    In addition, male children are STILL preferred over female children at a ratio of 115 males for every 100 females. The Chinese government STILL aborts or kills post-birth female babies to maintain higher male numbers. Perhaps Sanders can explain all this to us at some future speech or debate since he admires the Chinese and their policies so much.

    Since 2013, the Chinese government have allowed two-child families. A third pregnancy results in an abortion or post birth killing of the child.

    So Bernie, since you admire and idolize China so much, it’s your turn to tell us about China.
