When people start using words like ‘nuances’ you know they’re trying too hard.
Especially when it’s a talking head from CNN like Andrew Kaczynksi discussing the ‘nuances of Bernie’s views on the Soviet Union.’
One thing that would be helpful in discussing the nuances of his views on the Soviet Union & the international left would be a degree of literacy about them from commentators. For instance, he was always critical of authoritarianism in the Soviet Union.https://t.co/4hpoqcaDqT

Don’t worry, Bernie is a nice communist.
Gabriella Hoffman, who happens to be the granddaughter of a Stalin gulag survivor (wow, right?!) chimed in:
Spare this granddaughter of a Stalin gulag survivor of “nuances” about the USSR.
The Soviet Union was an evil regime. Any attempt to whitewash it with “nuance” to make it sound good should be soundly rejected.
Where are the anti-communist Democrats of the past? https://t.co/VJ0a55g1Se

Pretty sure Gabriella knows what she’s talking about here.
It's about morality. Collectivists treat people like cattle.
Bernie is a collectivist.

A kindler, gentler dictatorship of the proletariat?

Don’t worry, Bernie’s Gulags will have WiFi.

Sorry, distracted for a moment.
It’s always the most vociferous young people who have the least understanding of anything. I blame Netflix.
