Bernie Sanders: Soviet Union, Venezuela don't count as examples of failed socialism

<More democratic STUPIDITY Here>

When criticizing socialism, don't bring up the Soviet Union or Venezuela to Bernie Sanders.

Sanders, I-Vt., dismissed the connection between the failed socialist states and his own vision for America, during an interview on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" Tuesday. "Obviously, Soviet Union was an authoritarian society with no democratic rights, and I think if you know history, you know the democratic socialists fought and stood up against that," the 2020 Democratic hopeful said. The Daily Show's Jaboukie Young-White agreed with Sanders' assessment, saying "the examples of failed socialism that critics use are not socialist democracies, but authoritarian states led by corrupt, ruthless, and paranoid dictators."

Sanders, who owns three houses and has also earned more than $1 million annually in recent years, went on to defend someone being a millionaire in his vision of a socialist society. "If what you say in life is, 'all I want to do is as much money as I possibly can and screw everything else, I don't give a damn,' then no, I don't think democratic socialism is your cup of tea," he said. "But if you have a decent heart and say 'look, I'm doing really well, but I also want to be a contributor to the wellbeing of society, so I'm going to pay my fair share of taxes.'"

The "O.G. of socialism" in America, as he was described during the interview, also outlined why he believes younger generations are attracted to the system. "The younger generation will in all likelihood have a lower standard of living than their parents," he said, before also claiming student loan debts and a lack of high-paying jobs and affordable housing make the idea of a "society with more egalitarianism" appealing.

Sanders has promised to transform America with a left-wing vision of economic and environmental justice if he wins the White House.

First off, the interview was on Comedy Central. Probably where it belongs.

This guys soo full of crap his eye's are brown! All Socialism becomes authoritarian. Democracy is just a rest stop on the way to marxist utopia where you have no choices or rights.

The DNC has an out with this clown. Sanders runs as a Democrat to raid the campaign coffers. He fails then goes back to being an "Independent". The DNC should tell him to toss off. Bernie, no soup for you!

Bernie Sanders is a clueless clown who would be hilarious if not for the fact that millions of voters are apparently every bit as clueless as he is. There's nothing "funny" about the catastrophic policies he'd implement if given the chance. He must be kept as far away from the White House as humanly possible.

Hell, not just the White House - ANY position of power and/or authority. I wouldn't allow him to be the deputy assistant dog-catcher.

Sanders is only in this for the money. His followers are just too stupid to see that.

100 million dead in the Twentieth Century alone, and they couldn’t “get it right”?

I saw a quote the other day:

“You may vote your way into socialism, but you’ll likely have to shoot your way out.”

How about Finland? Does that count as an example?

The new government is center-left. You think they won’t try again? Socialists have only one play in their play-book.

Yes, Senator, the democratic socialists fought and stood up against that, and the undemocratic socialists killed them in the name of democratic socialism.

“But if you have a decent heart and say ‘look, I’m doing really well, but I also want to be a contributor to the wellbeing of society, so I’m going to pay my fair share of taxes.’”

And if you don’t follow this, Sanders will label you an undesirable enemy of the state/people, take all your wealth, and jail you.

What’s not to like?

Yes, he has supporters but, from what I have seen, they are mostly college children. I have heard something attributed to Churchill as well as others, "A man who is not a liberal in his youth has no heart and a man who is not conservative as an adult has no brain" or something to that effect. Bernie's main support are the victims of our educational cabal training them to be good sheeple.

I wouldn't put him on the guest list for the Waffle House.

Mostly, maybe, but not all. Here in Ultra-Left-Wing western WA state, there are Bernie supporters of all ages. I was asked by a (former) friend back in '16 if I wanted to put a Bernie sign in my apt window. I didn't actually say anything, but I'm pretty sure my sudden derisive howl followed by uncontrollable laughter was all the answer she required. She didn't ask a second time.

His supporters are all mentally challenged window lickers.
