Watch Bernie Sanders Defend Fidel Castro in 1985 Interview

Bernie Sanders has made a big deal out of distancing himself from extreme leftist ideologies. He has made it clear over and over again, that he supports the kind of democratic socialism that is seen in Northern Europe, and has no intention of bringing heavy-handed totalitarian socialism to America. That may well be true, but he also seems to have a disturbing bias for those regimes.

In a 1985 interview, Sanders tried to explain why the Cuban people hadn’t tried to overthrow their own government, and why the people of Nicaragua wouldn’t do the same. His explanation speaks volumes about his socialist beliefs.

Yes, the people of Cuba didn’t overthrow Castro because his government provided good healthcare and education to the masses. It has nothing to do with the fact that popular discontent has been violently suppressed by Castro’s regime for decades.

During Wednesday’s Democratic debate, Sanders was twice asked to explain the video, and both times he failed to completely disavow the Cuban dictatorship. He admitted that the authoritarian nature of that government is wrong, and finally answered “Look, let’s look at the facts here. Cuba is, of course, an authoritarian undemocratic country, and I hope very much as soon as possible it becomes a democratic country. But on the other hand […], it would be wrong not to state that in Cuba they have made some good advances in health care. They are sending doctors all over the world. They have made some progress in education.”

I don’t think Sanders is trying to usher in some socialist dictatorship in America, but you have to question the values of a man who seems to think that proper education and health care, are both a fair trade for the loss of freedom and dignity.

      Are you challenging the claim that Cuba produces more doctors than any other country in the world, per capita?

    Gonna be completely honest, would love to see the Bern be the nominee. Democrats hate him and republicans hate him. He’d have no chance of pushing anything through, and his failing record in doing so thus far proves it. He’d be a lame-duck president. Much less dangerous than the alternative.

      If universal hatred is the key, Trump would be the better choice.

    Democracy is the antithesis of a Republic, to my knowledge. Obongo and his ilk in DC ( which is USA INC.) push democracies.

      Democracy is the worse form of government that has never been tried.

    I am not a Bernie Sanders supporter as a matter of fact, I believe that to vote in this country is meaningless for many reasons! But I just have to ask, am I now reading the major media when I read the daily sheeple? It’s like you guys fall right back into new world order when an idea get to be to hard. “extreme leftist ideologies” What’s so extreme about wanting to live without gangsters (as it was controlled by in the 20′ and 30′) or bankster as they are known now? What a funking joke! “Cuba is, of course, an authoritarian undemocratic country” You live in an authoritarian undemocratic country, but major media has most (and it seems even you guys) thinking otherwise! Oh no that’s right we have free meaningless election, I forgot! And you guys are supposed to be “kool aid free”! but I see you have been drinking it down by the bucket load. Truth be told, If it (cuba) were not a an authoritarian undemocratic country” the bankster would own the country by now, and the woman would be on the streets. If your going to be waking people up, you should try to stay awake also!
