“You know, when Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program,” you told “60 Minutes” host Anderson Cooper. “Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” . . .
See, despite your claims, senator, that it was Castro who started a literacy program in Cuba, a common and often-repeated lie, the girl’s mother worked in a literacy program in the countryside after graduation from a teacher’s college in the early 1950s.
Teachers had to do so to earn their spot in a city classroom.
Facts don’t matter. It’s all about the narrative. Socialists talk about making poor people better off. Capitalists actually do it. In a media culture that rewards talking over doing because it’s run by talkers rather than doers, the socialists get more credit.
Meanwhile: Sanders defends comments praising Castro’s Cuba: ‘The truth is the truth.’ SJWs always double down.
