Bernie Sanders in speeches and interviews has repeatedly slandered President Trump. He has characterized the President as “the most dangerous President” in the history of the United States.
In one sense, President Trump is a “dangerous” threat to those, like Sanders, who would prefer to transform the United States into a vast socialist system. So, yes, Senator, President Trump is dangerous to your lifelong quest to transform our country into yet another failed socialist experiment.
Remember the Communist wall that President Reagan brought crashing down around the 80-year catastrophe that was the Soviet Union? How is socialism working out in Cuba, Venezuela, China and South Korea?
President Trump has pushed back (as he always does) against Sanders’ slams. Not one to mince words, ever, the President has labeled Bernie as a crazy communist.
That is an accurate characterization. Sanders is crazy in the sense that he is willing to impose what history has shown is a failed system on everyone with the promise that this time there will be a different outcome. That, folks, is the classic definition of insanity.
Bernie calls himself a “democratic socialist.” He wants the United States to “be more like Denmark and Sweden.” But those two small countries nearly drove themselves into bankruptcy after their socialist policies stifled economic growth. So, the trend in Bernie’s favorite countries is away from socialism.
But don’t be fooled. Sanders has a history of being a communist sympathizer. Just read his old speeches. As mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Bernie defended dictator and mass murderer Fidel Castro, “He educated the kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society.”
But even Sanders wasn’t dumb enough to ignore Castro’s oppression and mistreatment of political enemies. Sanders added, “Not to say Fidel Castro and Cuba are perfect.”
Considering that Castro allowed his henchman Ché Guevara to murder thousands and destroy Cuba’s economy, the latter would be a ridiculously vast understatement.
Bernie was also a big fan of Soviet Russia. He and his bride honeymooned there. He was ecstatic over Soviet youth programs which he praised as going “far beyond what we do in this country.”
Again, he qualified his gushing support with the half-criticism that the Soviet government was “authoritarian.”
Then there was Bernie’s enthusiastic support for the Sandinista socialists during the 1980s. He praised the government confiscation of land in the guise of reform. The Sandinistas, according to Bernie were “giving, for the first time in their lives, real land to farmers so that they can have something they grow. Nobody denies that they are making significant progress.”
That is, until the country went broke and the Sandinistas were voted out of office in 1990.
And there’s this classic quote when asked about the hunger and poverty that socialism creates in unfortunate countries like Venezuela: “American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food; the rich get the food and the poor starve.”
That, Senator, is the true definition of what true socialists want to do: redistribute wealth and put everyone in food lines.
In any case, Bernie Sanders is truly the most dangerous man in America. Hopefully, normal Americans will see what his band of crazy, spoiled lefties can’t see: Socialism is the enemy of freedom and prosperity, and Bernie Sanders is its last gasp before it is consigned to the trash heap of history.
