Crazy old man who wants to give everyone everything for free wants India to gift Kashmir to Jihadis

Bernie Sanders has a history of supporting violent dictatorships.

US Politician and a Presidential aspirant for the 2020 elections, Bernie Sanders, has issued a statement on Kashmir. In his statement on Kashmir, he has castigated the Indian government for the restrictions on communication and claimed that India’s actions were “unacceptable”. The Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders further called for a “UN-backed peaceful resolution that respects the will of the people of Kashmir.”

The Far-Left Communist’s stance on Kashmir, where he appears to be toeing the line of the Jihadist state of Pakistan, ought not to surprise anyone. In the past, he has praised several violent dictatorships. In the 1980s, the praised Fidel Castro for his inhumane crimes, for which he was slammed by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democrat Primaries.

“Everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world,” Sanders could be seen as saying in the video. “All the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed the society.”

He was given an opportunity to retract his praise for Castro during the Democrat Presidential Primaries but he chose not to. “What that was about was saying that the United States was wrong to try to invade Cuba, that the United States was wrong to try to support people to overthrow the Nicaraguan government,” Sanders said.

Bernie Sanders added, “Cuba is, of course, an authoritarian, undemocratic country and I hope very much, as soon as possible, it becomes a democratic country. But on the other hand, it would be wrong not to state that in Cuba they have made some good advances in healthcare, they are sending doctors all over the world. They have made some progress in education.”

Venezuela, too, has received praise from the Democrat. In a 2011 editorial that was endorsed by Sanders, it was said, “These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?” Venezuela, currently, is a socialist hellhole where people are forced to eat rats and dogs as the entire country has collapsed and its citizens are starving.

The violent communists in Nicaragua, the Sandinistas, too, have received support from Bernie Sanders. He had said once, “Is [the Sandinistas’] crime that they have built new health clinics, schools, and distributed land to the peasants? Is their crime that they have given equal rights to women? Or that they are moving forward to wipe out illiteracy? No, their crime in Mr Reagan’s eyes and the eyes of the corporations and billionaires that determine American foreign policy is that they have refused to be a puppet and banana republic to American corporate interests.”

The dictatorship committed a series of human rights violations and enforced a state of emergency that led to mass arrests of critics of the regime and the shutting down of all opposition newspapers and media. He later said that the brutal crackdown “made sense to me”. In his eyes, ‘Nicaragua was at war with counterrevolutionary forces, funded by the United States, and wartime occasionally necessitated undemocratic measures.’

It appears Sanders’ belief that ‘wartime necessitated undemocratic measures’ only applies to the occasions on which communist dictatorships are suppressing dissidents. It does not apply to India, a sovereign democratic country which is fighting Jihadists in Kashmir. With old age, Sanders’ youthful violent rhetoric appears to have calmed down as well. Now, he is just known as a crazy old man who wants to give everyone everything for free.

His best pals in American politics is Ilhan Omar, an antisemitic Islamist who is alleged to have married her own brother in immigration fraud and accused of committing adultery and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is best known for being the quintessential millennial who has very little idea about anything but wants to tell everyone else how to do their job. Cortez’s brainchild was the Green New Deal which proposed killing all ‘farting cows’ and getting rid of airplanes.

Despite all his apparent love for Communism, Sanders himself lives a grand life. He bought a luxurious summer home beside a beach which was bought only days after he endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Apart from that, he has a row house at Capitol Hill, Washington and another one at Burlington, Vermont where he had served as mayor in the past.

In his statement on Kashmir, Bernie Sanders also alleged that Kashmiris were suffering a healthcare crisis. The District Magistrate of Srinagar, Shahid Choudhary, however, has been denying these baseless accusations regularly. In a recent statement, he said, “Over 1.5 lac patients seen in OPDs, 15000 admitted for treatment in IPDs, around 2 lac medical tests done in hospitals from August 5 till date.” He further said, “Nearly 5000 major surgeries have been performed in hospitals in Srinagar from August 5 till date.”

“Routine laboratory investigations and radiological procedures like MRI and CT Scan performed in these hospitals during the period add up to over one lakh. These include among others around 5,500 X-Rays, over 6,000 USGs, around 2,000 ECGs, around 2,000 CT Scans, 220 MRIs and some 750 super-speciality procedures,” Jammu and Kashmir Directorate of Information said in a statement on Friday.

It is not clear where Bernie Sanders got his information about Kashmir suffering from a healthcare crisis. It was probably the same person who told him that the American dream was going to be realized in Venezuela and that Castro was a pious revolutionary who genuinely cared for the welfare of the Cuban people. Or maybe it was the person who told him that Sandinistas cared for human rights. Or maybe, it is just crazy old Bernie making stuff up as he goes along.

The only silver lining to the cloud is the fact that it is extremely unlikely that Bernie Sanders will be elected the Democratic nominee for the 2020 US Presidential elections. It isn’t his extremely problematic policy problems that make him ineligible, it’s his sex and the colour of his skin. He is a White Male, although he is a Jew. The eventual nominee will likely be Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden. Biden has already been accused of being a racist despite the fact that he served as Vice-President under Barack Obama and is known to be his good friend.

Even if Sanders did manage to win the Democratic nominee, his chances against Donald Trump is extremely slim as even within the Democrats, there’s a growing perception that the party has moved far too Left and ordinary Americans, too, aren’t comfortable with the direction Socialists like Sanders have been marching in.
