Bernie said some true things, and we're supposed to be outraged?

Cuba does have high literacy rates, despite Castro being a dictator. Obama has made exactly the same observation.
AIPAC is not remotely even-handed in the I/P issue. Everyone knows this. What, are they going to call Bernie anti-Semitic?

Is this supposed to be the "oppo"? Bernie making true statements?

One of these days, we're going to find out he ate Cocoa Puffs for breakfast too. SHAME! Cuba also has one of the highest amounts of scientists in all of Latin America.

So yes, there actually are good things about socialism. That does not mean there were not and are not human rights abuses. But there have been many human right abbuses in the U.S. too. Slavery, poverty, police brutality, Native American genocide, Iraq War, Vietnam War, exploitation and murder of immigrants, to name just a few. Guess this means we can never point out the good things about America again, huh?
