Sanders Praises Communist China... Cruz Crushes Him!
Christopher Halloran /

Sen. Bernie Sanders loves dictatorships and tyrannical regimes. Typical leftist.

Mao Zedong’s ‘Great Leap Forward’ led to the deaths of 45 million people, the biggest episode of mass murder in the history of the world. Topping even Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took aim at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his praise of Communist China, in which Sanders stated that Communist China had made “more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization.”

Cruz, who has been an aggressive opponent of the Communist China regime and whose knowledge of history, in all likelihood, far outstrips Sanders’, fired back on Twitter, snapping, “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.”

The story that triggered Cruz to demolish Sanders came from The Hill, which lauded Sanders’ “nuanced view of Beijing.” Sanders told Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball, “China is a country that is moving unfortunately in a more authoritarian way in a number of directions. But what we have to say about China in fairness to China and its leadership is if I’m not mistaken they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, so they’ve done a lot of things for their people.” More

Ted Cruz wasn’t the only one to hammer Bernie Sanders:
