Project Veritas recently released an undercover video that exposed a Bernie Sanders campaign staffer defending gulags and communist-style reeducation camps for Trump supporters if Sanders wins the White House this November.
While socialism appears to be the ideology of the moment for the Democratic left, we should never forget that Bernie Sanders was once a genuine communist and proud of it. In 1980, Sanders served as an elector for the Socialist Workers Party ticket of Clifton DeBerry and Andrew Pulley.
The SWP was a party of old school communists, not as Doug Bandow of the American Spector writes, “[the] cuddly democratic socialist of the sort Sanders appears to be today.” Sanders visited Cuba during the 1960s applauding Castro for “improving the lives of poor people.”
Sanders said of that communist dictatorship, “More interesting than their providing their people with free health care, free education, free housing … is that they are in fact creating a very different value system than the one we are familiar with.”
Some excuse Sander’s past saying he’s not that kind of socialist anymore. Mel Mason told The Washington Examiner, “I don’t know why he’s changed, but I think what happens to a lot of folks who come into office as a true radical…”
If his staffers are any indication, not much has changed with the Senator from Vermont as he would have us believe.
Watch the video and learn what Andrew Klavan of the Daily Wire says Bernie Sander’s real reason for pushing free government college education is.
