Sunday on CBS News’ 60 Minutes, presidential contender Bernie Sanders argued the United States is not a “great” country in some “very significant ways.”
When asked by news propagandist Anderson Cooper if America is great, Sanders replied, “In many ways, we are. In some ways, very significant ways, we’re not,” Sanders declared. “We’re not great when half of our people today are living paycheck to paycheck. When 500,000 people tonight are going to be sleeping out on the streets, including 30,000 veterans.
“You know, my father came to this country at the age of 17 without a nickel in his pocket. Couldn’t speak a word of English, had very limited education. We are a great nation, because people like my father would never have dreamed in a million years that their kids would become United States senators or be successful in many other ways,” the Democratic Socialist added.
Is America perfect? Of course not. Is it great? Yes, but leftists like Sanders can’t bring themselves to say it, and their policies would destroy everything great about it.
