Socialist Bernie Sanders is officially running for President in 2020. After he lost to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, Sanders has decided that he is going to take another shot at President.
Sanders has recently been under a l0t of scrutiny for some comments that he made in the 1980’s that included 1980s praising the Soviet Union, giving advice to Nicaragua’s socialist government and saying breadlines in countries under communist rule are a “good thing.”
“It’s funny sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing,” he said in one vintage video unearthed by conservative activists. “In other countries, people don’t line up for food, rich people get the food and poor people starve to death.”
Seriously? It’s good that people are relying on the government to give them food? That is a recipe for disaster. Just look at Venezuela.
This is just one of many video clips that shows Sanders proping up Marxist and communist countries and going against the US government.
In 1988 after visiting the Soviet Union, Sanders stated that he was “very impressed” by the USSR. Read what he said when referring to the USSR’s transportation systems.
“The stations themselves were absolutely beautiful, including many works of art, chandeliers that were very beautiful, it was a very effective system,” he said in a clip unearthed by conservative group The Reagan Battalion.
He also said he was fond of the USSR’s “palaces of culture,” which he told an audience were much better than anything the U.S. had mustered: “I was also impressed by the youth programs that they have, their palaces of culture for the young people, a whole variety of programs for young people, and cultural programs which go far beyond what we do in this country.”
Over the past few decades, America has been fighting hard against radical socialist and communist countries, but now we are letting people with these radical ideologies run for office! How pathetic!\
Astounding! After a 1988 trip to the USSR, @BernieSanders & wife Jane praise the Soviet system. When I visited Moscow the same year, the decrepitude overwhelmed me. The Sanders are 20 years older than me. To a shocking degree, they are blinded by ideology. pic.twitter.com/7KmHz4D8hf

Jane Sanders was just equally excited about the communist country as well.
Jane Sanders was equally enamored with their tour, as well as “the enthusiasm and the optimism” of the people they met there, and praised the concept that work and free time were merged.
“Instead of compartmentalizing their lives into a job and hobbies, it’s all interrelated and all under the banner of community involvement,” she gushed.
Citizens of the Soviet Union didn’t agree with their assessment, however, rising against the communist bloc as it broke up just a few years later.
As Americans, we must make sure that these two radical Socialists never spend a day in the White House. If Bernie Sanders wins in 2020, America as we know it is done.
Read what Sanders said in an interview regarding the Nicaraguan government.
He also said in that interview that he advised the Nicaraguan government how better to communicate their message, and made the bizarre accusation that the American media were not allowed to criticize President Ronald Reagan.
“The point I tried to make to many of the people I spoke to is they’re getting killed in the American media, they just cannot compete, Reagan and his people are so sophisticated, they own the airwaves of course,” he said.
“Reagan and the media, every time Reagan gives them a photo op, it’s going to be thousands of: ‘Oh thank you Mr. President, thank you for telling us another lie.’ The media of course is not allowed to ask sharp questions of the president, that’s not allowed.”
In the same interview, he did not make the distinction he now makes between socialism and his own brand of “democratic socialism.”
“As a socialist, the word socialism does not frighten me and I think it’s probably fair to see the government of Nicaragua is primarily a socialist government,” he said.
2020 is just around the corner and if you think that Bernie Sanders doesn’t have a chance, think again. The Left is becoming more and more unhinged by the day and they seem to be more and more willing to adopt socialism.
Vote Trump in 202o and reject the false song of socialism!
