Normal people growing up in the 60’s were excited for The Beatles, Elvis Presley. But not Bernie Sanders (see WATCH: Bernie Sanders Approves of Letting the Boston Marathon Bomber Vote and WATCH: Bernie Sanders is Totally Fine with Murderers Voting from Prison). He was throwing his panties at Fidel Castro taking over Cuba.
Here’s Bernie in 1986 reminiscing about his youth, and how Fidel got him all wet.
Video: @BernieSanders, University of Vermont, 1986, recalls his excitement watching Castro’s revolution “rising up against the ugly rich people.” & his sick feeling watching JFK speak out against communism in Cuba.

“I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba. I was a kid…and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”
Whenever people on the right bring up Cuba or Venezuela as examples of what socialism looks like, the leftist talking point is, “Oh, but that’s not real socialism.” Well, here’s a video of a REAL socialist cheering for another REAL socialist when that REAL socialist first took over a country. Now 30+ years later, Bernie is running for president. Under the guise of “democratic socialism.” Which is really just another way of saying “regular socialism we’re lying to you about, but you losers are too stupid to get it.”
Bernie loves Castro. May this video haunt him for the rest of the campaign.
