update: Sanders as was clear from his 2016 talks socialism but doesn’t mean it. He clearly won’t support anyone who is actually a socialist like Maduro. Sanders’ response is a reminder that he is a part of american imperialism. He is irresponsible. We MUST recall what happened in Chile, as if the US was remotely interested in democracy: they planned and fomented the Pinochet coup which launched an orgy of mass murder.
This is a revealing statement from Sanders. After a talking through his hat on socialism he seems to echo the state department quite nicely here and those who preach sanctimoniously against the Bolivarians ought to keep in mind the massacres likely to occur if the right takes power and which will destroy all the robust institutions created the socialist movement and punish/impoverish ordinary Venezuelans. Does Sanders not see the fascist Brazil engineered the CIA and the praise heaped on its neo-fascism by Pompeo/
I think Sanders just finished off his socialist spiel…..
