Ted Cruz Smashes Bernie by Sharing Video of Climate Activist Unable to Explain Where Socialism Has Worked
Posted at 3:00 pm on February 13, 2020 by Sister Toldjah

As the liberal mainstream media and Democratic commentators continue fighting with each other on whether or not Democratic voters are going full-on socialist by supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, Sen. Ted Cruz provided a very timely reminder today for anyone on the left interested in hearing some inconvenient truths:

Socialism doesn’t work.

It all started after Australian political blogger/illustrator Keira Savage posted on Twitter what’s now become a classic video clip of Sky News’ Andrew Bolt methodically interviewing Jacob Andrewartha, an Australian proponent of socialism and self-described climate activist. The interview came after a protest that happened in Melbourne in October 2019 in which 50 protesters were arrested during a mining conference where violence erupted.

During the segment, Bolt noted the destruction and death that socialism has caused wherever it has been implemented, and asked the activist if he could provide an example of where socialism had actually worked.

Andrewartha’s “answer” said it all:

Cruz, who has been one of the most outspoken members of the U.S. Senate on the issue of the rise of socialism on the left, shared the video clip and added a simple response to it:

The full video clip, which you can watch below, is a case study on how these wacky leftist activists’ arguments frequently wither and crumble under serious questioning. I’ve got the video set to start where Bolt asked him where socialism has ever worked, but feel free to start it from the beginning:

I’m not sure if there are anymore Democratic presidential debates scheduled, but this is a question that should be asked of Sanders if there is another one (not that anyone would actually ask it, of course, because narratives and what not).

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
― Nikola Tesla

LOL, what a moron. He was given a long list of former communist countries and couldn't name one. Even his own favorite, Cuba.
My wife and I went to Cuba and were sickened at the ruin of a once fine country.
Havana was nothing but slums, except the government buildings of course.
But I guess socialism is ok if you want to live without medical care, electricity, running water in many cases, no groceries except rice and beans and maybe a chicken at Christmas.

HEAVEN HAS A WALL, A GATE, AND A STRICT IMMIGRATION POLICY.
H*LL HAS OPEN BORDERS. taken from fox news

DEMOCRATS/ABORTIONISTS SHOULD TAKE HEED OF THE FACT THAT BABIES ARE GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS.

MURDER BABIES AND YOU "WILL" BURN FOR ETERNITY.

You hit the nail on the head! Socialism is the "perfect" system that shares "everything" with the unwashed masses, then takes it back, and anything else they want, and lets them fight for the scraps.....if there are any.....all the while the socialist officials get rich, fat, and mean. Where do you think old Bernie expects to be?

Socialism WORKS ==> UNTIL they run out of OTHER PEOPLE's MONEY.

Socialists NEED to be shot on sight.

They got NOTHING. They have NOTHING. They do NOTHING - except spend someone else's money. Apparently, and when it happened I didn't vote for it, America is the Haven for the NOTHING folks and those of us here that DO SOMETHING are the long tails carrying the bloodsuckers.
