Vintage Bernie footage now shows presidential candidate promising breadlines, communist nations

Presidential Hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Has never shaded away from his consideration of a left agenda, but the Democratic Socialist faces re-examination of a catalog of comments he made in the 1980s and promised Soviet Union, which advises Nicaragua's socialist government – and also says that bread in communist countries is a "good thing". Videos of these comments have been recycled online at a furious pace since Sanders jumped in the 2020 competition Tuesday, this time as a supposed front runner instead of the underdog he played in 2016 against a plant favorite. With its increased character, and the role of dragging the entire field to the left, he has gotten a harder look at his long record that speaks up socialist governments.

9659004] “It’s funny sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are looking for food. That’s a good thing,” he said in a vintage video played by conservative activists. “In other countries, people are not fit for food, rich people get food and poor people starve to death.”

The clip is one of a number where Sanders is seen embodying the supposed benefits of Marxist and socialist governments while casting aspersions on the US government. After a journey to the Soviet Union in 1988, he held a press conference with his wife Jane and said he was “very impressed” by the Soviet Union’s public transport system.

“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 revealed by the conservative group Reagan Battalion.

He also said he was fond of the Soviet Union’s “cultural palace”, which he told an audience was much better than anything the US had gathered: “I was also impressed by the youth programs they have, their cultural palace for young people, a variety of programs for young people and cultural programs that go far beyond what we do in this country. “

Jane Sanders was equally fond of their tour, as well as the” enthusiasm and optimism “of the people they met there and praised the concept of work and leisure were merged. [1 9659005] “Instead of splitting their lives into a job and hobbies, it’s all with each other and everything under the banner of community engagement,” she held away.

The citizens of the Soviet Union did not agree with their judgment, but ascended to the communist block when it broke up a few years later.

Sanders also visited Nicaragua during the Marxist Sandinist regime. Despite US opposition to the anti-American socialist government, Sanders was in favor of it.

“The basic” crime “committed by the people of Nicaragua today is that the government has the strange and unusual idea that they should try to do something for Nicaraguan people rather than for the American companies,” he murmured in a speech. “It is a very strange idea for an independent nation to have”

Another time he questioned a reporter about why he called Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega the “Marxist President of Nicaragua” instead of “the democratically elected president of Nicaragua”.

In another interview from 1985 with a local television station, BuzzFeed News dug in 2015, he said of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro that “just because Ronald Reagan does not like these people, does not mean that people in their own nations feel the same way. “

“In 1959 … everyone was convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all the Cuban people went up in rebellion against Fidel Castro, “Sanders said. “They forgot that he trained his children, nursed their children, and completely transformed society.”

He also said in that interview that he advised the Nicaraguan government how better to communicate his message and made the bizarre accusation that American media did not criticize President Ronald Reagan.

“The point I was trying to make to many of the people I talked to is that they are being killed in the American media, they just can’t compete, Reagan and his people are so sophisticated, of course they own the air waves,” he says. 19659003] CLICK HERE TO FOX NEWS APP

“Reagan and the media, every time Reagan gives them a photo, it will be thousands:” Thank you, Mr President, thank you for telling me another lie Of course, the media should not ask the president’s sharp questions, it is not allowed. “

In the same interview, he did not make the difference he now makes between socialism and his own” democratic socialism “brand. [19659005] “As a socialist, the word socialism does not scare me and I think it is probably fair to see the Nicaraguan government being primarily a socialist government,” he said.

The Sanders campaign did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News on Friday morning.
