Bernie Sanders’ radical political past has come back to haunt him.
His insane support of a murderous dictator has put him in the middle of a political firestorm.
Now Bernie Sanders hid one disturbing truth from the American people.
Bernie Sanders likes to describe himself as a Democratic socialist.
That brings to mind Scandinavian countries like Norway and Sweden but those aren’t the countries that Bernie Sanders has praised in the past.
Bernie Sanders praised communist countries like Cuba, Venezuela, honeymooned in the USSR and was congratulated on an election win by a Soviet spy.
And he’s willing to go on record and defend communists.
In a CBS 60 Minutes interview, Bernie Sanders had a chance to take back his approval of Fidel Castro but the Senator was unwilling to backtrack.
While he admitted that not everything Castro did was good, he was quick to point out that not everything Castro did was bad.
“You know?” Sanders said, “When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”
The Vermont Senator isn’t trying hard to hide his communist leanings.
This is making it hard for him to respond now that it has been proven that the Russians are helping to support him.
According to the Daily Wire:
The Washington Post reported on Friday that U.S. federal officials had contacted the Sanders campaign and notified them that Russia was attempting to boost his campaign in an effort to meddle with the outcome of the Democratic presidential nomination.
“The classified FBI briefing wasn’t of the type routinely given to presidential campaigns about election security, those people said,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “It was given in reaction to intelligence considered compelling enough that Mr. Sanders needed to be alerted, one of the people said.”
A CNN reporter asked Sanders why he thought the report came out today given Sanders’ claim that he had the briefing a month ago.
“Well, I’ll let you guess,” Sanders responded. “One day before the Nevada caucus. Why do you think it came out?”
“It was The Washington Post – good friends,” Sanders said sarcastically.
Sanders also appeared to tell CNN that he was briefed that other countries were also trying to get involved in his campaign, saying, “We were told that Russia, maybe other countries, are going to get involved in this campaign.”
The notion that the Sanders campaign is being targeted by some sort of coordinated media effort with the apparent intent to damage his campaign, of which there is no proof, was quickly challenged online.
Journalist Yashar Ali tweeted: “I thought some of the language Sanders used in the debate around Russia and Russian interference was unusual for him. Now it makes sense…he had been briefed about their attempts.”
Bernie Sanders was more than happy to be friends with Russia at the height of the Cold War but now it is inconvenient for him to look like a communist sympathizer.
But the reality is that Bernie Sanders is still very much influenced by communist ideals which makes him the most dangerous presidential candidate ever.
If Trump is not reelected in 2020, American freedom could disappear forever.
