Sick Watching JFK Speaking Out Against Castro

'I remember being excited when Castro made the revolution in Cuba': Video from 1986 surfaces showing presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders praising the late communist ruler

Senator Bernie Sanders was filmed giving a 1986 lecture in which he praised the Cuban revolution led by Communist ruler Fidel Castro.

‘I remember being very excited when Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,’ Sanders is seen telling students at the University of Vermont in 1986.

‘It seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against ugly rich people.’

Sanders was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont, at the time the tape was recorded, which was posted to Twitter on Wednesday by a user called, The Reagan Battalion.

‘Kennedy was saying Nixon was too soft on communism in Cuba,’ Sanders said.

‘For the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans ... clearly that there really wasn't a whole lot of difference between the two.’

Sanders is one of the leading candidates in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.
