Bernie Sanders Defends Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro, Drawing Outcry From Florida Democrats

The post Bernie Sanders Defends Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro, Drawing Outcry From Florida Democrats appeared first on American Lookout.

Bernie Sanders appeared on 60 Minutes on Sunday night and actually defended the former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

This is a nightmare for Democrats.

This is who Bernie Sanders is.

This is who he always was.

Take a look below:

If Democrats want to win Florida, this is going to be a big problem. There are a lot of people in the state who fled Cuba because of Castro.

Two Florida Democrats have already denounced Bernie’s comments.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Florida Democrats Slam Bernie’s Castro Comments as ‘Unacceptable,’ ‘Insulting’

Three Florida Democratic congresswomen slammed presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) over his comments defending the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

“I’m hoping that in the future, Senator Sanders will take time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro,” tweeted Miami congresswoman and former HHS secretary Donna Shalala, along with a gif of a cat reading “C’mon, bro.” Shalala’s remarks came after Sanders called criticism of the communist dictator “unfair” on an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, praising Castro’s “massive literacy program.”

Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D., Fla.) seconded Shalala’s criticism. “I find Senator Bernie Sanders’s comments on Castro’s Cuba absolutely unacceptable,” she tweeted.

“The Castro regime murdered and jailed dissidents, and caused unspeakable harm to too many South Florida families,” the Miami congresswoman continued. “To this day, it remains an authoritarian regime that oppresses its people, subverts the free press, and stifles a free society.”

Again, this is who Bernie Sanders has always been.

No one should be surprised.
