Oh my, Bernie Sanders thinks bread lines are a good thing!
Bernie Sanders: “You know, it’s funny. Sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is when people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing. In other countries, people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in 1985 praised countries where people “line up for food,” calling breadlines a “good thing.”
The video of Sanders, then the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, resurfaced on Tuesday after the senator announced that he is running for president in 2020. In the interview from the mid-80s, Sanders was asked about breadlines in Nicaragua and his support for the socialist Sandinistas who ruled the country at the time.
“You know, it’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food,” Sanders said. “That’s a good thing. In other countries people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food, and the poor starve to death.”
Sanders’s presidential campaign will be his second bid for the White House, after losing his Democratic primary bid to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Still, despite losing, Sanders said that his more progressive stances helped push the Democratic Party further to the left in the two years following his loss. More
Only in the mind of a demented socialist could a bread line be a good thing. Millions of Venezuelans would disagree with Bernie. Sanders can move to Venezuela and stand in one. I want Capitalism where the bread waits for me and I have literally dozens of choices to choose from.
Like he would know…
We’ The People want the proof of how Bernie Sanders knows that breadlines are a good thing…
