In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Sanders Praises “Massive” Castro Literacy Program and Asks: “Is That a bad Thing”?

Appearing on CBS’ 60 Minutes Sunday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders had some kind words to say about Fidel Castro. For example, the tyrant taught everyone to read.

Not a stretch to say it takes a certain mindset to say nice things about Castro.

And BTW, communist regimes are always great with literacy programs. They teach you to read . . . and then they give you something to read.

  1. Bernie, as we know, is a certified whack job. He never held a full time job until he was elected mayor at age 53. He lived off of welfare and four different women, and had a child out-of-wedlock with one. Three of his marriages failed. As a Senator, he introduced 364 bills. 3 passed. Two of those were to name post offices. Bernie applied for a conscientious objector deferment to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War, but his deferment was denied. He dodged the draft by having a kid out of wedlock in 1969 with his new girlfriend, Susan Mott. Even then, he refused to get a real full time job, and had no way to support the child. He continued to subsist on odd carpentry jobs and unemployment checks, and occasionally selling $15 articles, including the one about how women fantasize about gang rape. His then girlfriend left him because he refused to get a steady job to support his child. He traveled to Cuba in hopes of meeting his hero Fidel Castro, but access to Castro was denied.
    Bernie Sanders did not to hold a full-time job his entire life or vote in a single election, until he finally ran for Mayor of Burlington at the age of 40. After several failed elections, he finally won the office of Mayor of Burlington, VT, and eventually a Senate seat.
    And the corporate media reports on none of this.

      1. Most of the corporate media supports him, buys into and participates into the Sanders mythology, and attacks, without mercy, his political rivals. I’ve found bits and pieces of the Sanders story here and there, but you have to hunt hard for the real Sanders story. Many of his former staff members have said he is a foul mouthed, short tempered and manipulative SOB who tries to screw them out of their agreed upon salary. But most media refuse to tell that story. It’s all very weird.

  2. “Good in the beginning, but went too far” is what Cincinnati Reds then-owner Marge Schott said about Adolf Hitler.

    It forced her into early retirement. History has an impeccable ear for rhyme, so perhaps we’ll see a “reds” sympathizer retire early, as well.

  3. Be afraid. Talking to some Sanders supporters is a chilling experience. You can tell them who he really is and you get a blank look from them. Tell them he , as POTUS, can’t do anything he promises and they smirk.
    All they hear is “free”, no more college loans, everything will be fair to all.

  4. Haha! That’s awesome Keith, “…communist regimes are always great with literacy programs. They teach you to read . . . and then they give you something to read.”
