Sanders loves trashing Republicans but won’t condemn truly oppressive Cuban Communists

Sanders, who previously defended some of the policies of Cuba’s previous communist dictator Fidel Castro, including his literacy program, is still silent on whether he supports Cubans speaking out against the communist regime. 

However, he did call for higher taxes on billionaires Sunday in response to billionaires like Richard Branson, who successfully reached space on a test flight for Virgin Galactic, going to space, saying, “It’s time to tax the billionaires.”

The self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist also used his Twitter account late last month to accuse Senate Republicans of contributing to “authoritarianism” after they blocked debate on the “For the People Act,” which would have imposed federal standards on state elections and would have weakened state ID requirements.

“It is a disgrace that at a time when authoritarianism, conspiracy theories and political violence are on the rise not a single Republican in the United States Senate has the courage to even debate whether we should protect American democracy or not,” Sanders tweeted.
