Socialist 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders defends his praise of Fidel Castro and says that he does not regret it during a Fox News town hall event last night.
On “60 Minutes” Bernie Sanders defended Cuban dictator Fidel Castro to the host Anderson Cooper, emphasizing the dictator’s “literacy program.” Florida Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell went after presidential candidate about his remarks.
Bret Baier: “There are a few moments in races that seem like turning points. Many experts looked at that moment on ‘60 Minutes’ when you talked about Fidel Castro’s literacy program as a turning point in this race. Do you regret at all saying what you said at that time in this race?”
“No,” Sanders said. “Look, I have spent my entire life fighting for working people and fighting for democracy.”
“And Bret, if you check my record, I have condemned authoritarianism, whether it is in the Soviet Union, whether it’s in Cuba, whether it is in Saudi Arabia.”

I don’t know anyone who is old fashioned who honeymoons in communist Russia.
My parents were old fashioned.
They honeymooned at Niagara Falls.

I cannot listen to this old man justify his communistic ideology. Worse then that all the young people in the audience applauding his socialist ideals.

He has more good things to say about communism than the frickin country he’s trying to be president in.
