The South Carolina crowd was not tolerating Bernie Sanders when he attempted to defend his remarks about the communist regime in Cuba that resulted in a multitude of deaths to their people.
Here’s the transcription of the dialogue from The Daily Wire:
“You praised the Chinese communist party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country,” CBS News’ Margaret Brennan said. “You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua.”
“Can Americans trust that a … socialist president will not give authoritarians a free pass?” Brennan asked.
“I have opposed authoritarianism all over the world,” Sanders falsely claimed. “And I was really amazed at what mayor Bloomberg said just a moment ago. He said that the Chinese government is responsible to the Politburo, but who the hell is the Politburo responsive to? Who elects the Politburo?”
“You got a real dictatorship there,” Sanders continued. “Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba. What I said is what Barack Obama said in terms of Cuba, that Cuba made progress on education.”
The crowd booed.
History has taught us over and over that dictatorships, socialism, and communism do not prevail and they always result in utter chaos, deteriorating the economy, relinquishing the very human nature to dream, and so on.
Furthermore, comparing Cuba to America is apples to oranges.
I’m not well versed on Cuba or their education system, but logic teaches us that, if you reach a conclusion about a specific sample set, it is irrelevant to compare it to that of an entirely separate sample set.
Perhaps Cuba’s ‘educational improvements’ are actually a lower skillset than the lowest of skillsets in America.
Additionally, if the standard for ‘good education’ is equivalent to ‘communist propaganda’ then I’d prefer to communicate with grunts anyways.
I’m not trying to be racist or judgmental, but it’s basic logic.
I just don’t buy it.
