Speaking to Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball Wednesday, 2020 hopeful and everyone’s favorite multimillionaire socialist uncle — Bernie Sanders — heaped praise upon progressive China:
“But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and it’s leadership, is — if I’m not mistaken — they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization. Okay? So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”
Ted Cruz, apparently, found the comment curious.
Therefore, he decided to Crush Uncle Bernie mercilessly:
“Sure, the Chinese Communists have wrongfully imprisoned & tortured millions, and they have murdered over 65 million people, but Bernie may have a point: when you’re dead, your poverty’s solved, right? #AbsurdLeftistPropaganda.”

Perhaps Bernie’s just a good-timin’ fella who likes to look on the non-murderous bright side.
Still, Ted cruised in and wrecked ol’ Bern with that blazer.
Uncle Bernie’s a revolutionary, and — unfortunately — many of his supporters seem wholly aware of what he’s selling. Despite signs and comments by millennials to the contrary, socialism isn’t simply a system in which everyone’s taken care of. It’s a design which prohibits individuals from owning their own businesses, as the government possesses all products and means of production. Which China has in the past somewhat employed: Under Chairman Mao, every factory and farm in the gargantuan nation was owned by the Communist Party.
Is that what the youngsters really want? The inability to open their own vape store?
Presumably, Bernie’s a fan.
Thankfully, many who know the definition of words aren’t.
That includes Ted, who’s no stranger to correcting Mr. Sanders.
Take a short trip back in time and watch Ted absolutely shred your uncle below. Like China, Ted’s intense:
