Bernie the communist!! Of course you love him.
Sanders in 1985 Defended the Socialist Revolution in Nicaragua
“One of the things that I think I learned on my trip, as a socialist -- the word socialism doesn't frighten me, and I think it's probably fair to say that the Nicaraguan government is primarily a socialist government,”
Sanders said in his view, "the Sandinista government has more support among the Nicaraguan people -- substantially more support-- than Ronald Reagan has among the American people,"
As it turns out, decades after Sanders' trip, things have not worked out well in Nicaragua. Ortega -- defeated in 1990 -- returned as president in 2006.
The U.S. State Department urges Americans to "reconsider" travel to Nicaragua, "due to crime, civil unrest, limited healthcare availability and arbitrary enforcement of laws."
According to the travel warning "Throughout Nicaragua, armed and violent uniformed police or civilians in plain clothes acting as police (“para-police”) are targeting anyone considered to be in opposition to the rule of President Ortega. The government and its affiliated armed groups have been reported to:
--Arbitrarily detain protestors, with credible claims of torture and disappearances.
--Systematically target opposition figures, including clergy members.
--Prevent certain individuals from departing Nicaragua by air or land.
--Seize privately owned land.
--Arbitrarily search personal phones and computers for anti-government content.
--Arbitrarily detain certain individuals with unfounded charges of terrorism, money laundering, and organized crime.
These police and para-police groups often cover their faces, sometimes operate in groups numbering in the hundreds, and use unmarked vehicles.
Rallies and demonstrations are widespread and occur daily around the country. Government forces, uniformed police and para-police have attacked peaceful demonstrators leading to significant numbers of deaths and injuries. Looting, vandalism, and arson often occur during unrest.
Road blocks, including in Managua and other major cities, may appear and limit availability of food and fuel.
Government hospitals are understaffed and may deny treatment to suspected protestors. Some hospitals throughout the country may not be able to assist in emergencies. Ambulances have reportedly refused to respond or have been denied access to areas with individuals needing emergency care.
Violent crime, such as sexual assault and armed robbery, is common.
The U.S. Embassy in Managua is limited in the assistance it can provide....
Yes yes.. Socialism is sooo good and loving. Bread lines and food shortages, poverty and crime, torture and land seizure! Yay!
You see, but history doesnt matter.. Bernie said cops bad, whites racist. MAKE HIM A PRESIDENT!
America will never become a socialist country.. Because if it does, America will cease to exist. Per the globalist plan.
