Watch: Biden’s VP Frontrunner Tries To Wash Away Their Communist Sins…If This Isn’t Pandering I Don’t Know What Is
Reports in the mainstream media are circulating that Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) is not the frontrunner in the sweepstakes to be Joe Biden’s running mate. The problem is as with every other person Biden has wanted to pick they have some dirty laundry.
Bass is a hardcore communist Breitbart News reported:
A deep dive into Bass’s background reveals that her influences were not just socialist, but hardcore communist.
The VP vetting process brought renewed scrutiny to comments Bass made about Cuba’s communist dictator Fidel Castro. In a statement following Castro’s death in 2016, Bass referred to him as “Comandante en Jefe” and described his death as “a great loss to the people of Cuba.”
The honorific “Commandante en Jefe”—which translates to “commander in chief”—was criticized by Florida Democrats for being excessively deferential to a dictator with a long history of human rights abuses.
To cleanse herself form her sins Bass made the rounds on Sunday to walk back her comments.
During an interview with MSNBC Bass said, “I have talked to my colleagues in the House about that, and it’s certainly something that I would not say again. I have always supported the Cuban people, and the relationship that Barack Obama and Biden had in their administration in terms of opening up relations.”
Here’s a flip flop for you, when asked how she would “characterize the Castro regime” Bass said:
“I think the Castro regime and its legacy is very troubling.” However, a moment later, she appeared to dismiss the significance of Castro’s crimes by saying: “But you know what? I mean, we could talk all evening. I could tell you about a number of regimes that I think are very troubling in a variety of different ways.”
As she made all the rounds she told Chris Wallace on Fox News, “I absolutely would have not put that statement out.”
“Lesson learned, would not do that again, for sure,” she continued, telling Wallace she now understood Castro’s leadership was a “brutal regime.”
If this is not pandering to Florida I don’t know what is.
