Bernie Sanders: Comparing My Socialism to Venezuelan Dictator’s is ‘Extremely Unfair’

Epoch Times:

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) claimed during the recent Democratic presidential primary debate that equating his socialist policies to those of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro was “extremely unfair.”

Sanders was responding to a question from moderator Jorge Ramos, known for his vocal opposition to Maduro’s oppressive regime. Ramos and his five-person crew were arrested and detained for hours in Venezuela in February for asking the country’s dictator uncomfortable questions. They were then kicked out of the country and had their equipment confiscated.

On Thursday, Sept. 12, during the ABC News Democratic debate, Ramos asked Sanders to explain how the 2020 presidential hopeful’s “democratic socialism” differed from the socialism that has brought Venezuelan society to collapse. read more

17 Comments on Bernie Sanders: Comparing My Socialism to Venezuelan Dictator’s is ‘Extremely Unfair’

  1. “… and (Bernie) praising communist China for making “more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization,”

    Well, yeah, if you murder millions of your poor people, you do tend to make progress against poverty.

  2. Did I miss the part where Bernie was awarded the Nobel Prize for perfecting socialism (“My socialism”)? If I did, I offer my apologies for thinking the poor fellow feckless and as dumb as a mud fence.

  3. Yeahhhhhhh Wally, how bad could it possibly be with an old, angry Commie bastard in charge?

    Well Beave, we already got a taste of it with a young maladroit, fundamentally-transforming Marxist Muzlim Mallard Bastard in charge!

  4. “Bernie, if it walks like a duck, smells like a duck, and quacks like a duck, why isn’t it a duck?”

    You commie retard bastard.

    Does anyone else see Big Bird every time he talks?

  5. Hey Bernie,
    You naive old fool! Here is where you just don’t get it:
    In your feeble mind you have socialism perfected. But that perfection relies on everyone else having the same belief.
    But your “perfect” socialism is destined to fail. If you are elected someone in your cabinet will want power and will do whatever is necessary to get rid of you (think Stalin and Lenin). That person NEVER had the same idea as you of the “perfect” socialism, only lust for power. Once you are dispatched this person will squeeze into power and all hell will break loose!

  6. Bernie,
    Venezuela needs some new leadership.
    Go for it. Your odds are better there than here.
    Tell them it’s the “New American Plan Socialism.”
    Keep us posted on results.
    Udachi Comrade

  7. “Unfair”

    The favorite word used by snowflakes everywhere. Used to be just grade school children used that word. You know, before they learned how the world works.

    Shameful behavior from any adult. But, then, the left have lost their shame gene.
