Bernie Sanders bragged about how the government of New York is manufacturing hand sanitizer. What Sanders did not mention is that this hand sanitizer is not being made available to the general public. Only people who have the right connections will be able to get it.

Yesterday, I wrote this blog post, which is called “Bernie Sanders praises the government of New York for making its own hand sanitizer, which is made by prison inmates who get paid 65 cents an hour.”

Today I have some additional information that Sanders also failed to mention.

The New York Times just reported that this government-manufactured hand-sanitizer

“by law, can only be sold to state and local government agencies, schools, police departments and some nonprofit organizations.”

So it’s not being made available to the general public.

Only people with the right connections will be able to get it.

This is typical of how things worked in the Soviet Union.

This is not the first time that Sanders has spoken out in favor of the government doing things like this.

Sanders once said the following:

“You don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers”

Sanders also once said that it was a “good thing” when people have to wait in line for food.

These are Sanders’s exact words:

“It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, cause people are lining up for food. That’s a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

You can see and hear Sanders saying those words in this video:

But in the real world, it’s not a “good thing” when people have to wait in line for food.

In May 2017, the Washington Post reported:

“In a recent survey of 6,500 Venezuelan families by the country’s leading universities, three-quarters of adults said they lost weight in 2016 — an average of 19 pounds… a level of hunger almost unheard-of outside war zones or areas ravaged by hurricane, drought or plague.”

Then in February 2018, Reuters reported:

“Venezuelans reported losing on average 11 kilograms (24 lbs) in body weight last year… according to a new university study…”

That’s 43 pounds in two years.

Here’s a photograph from 2014 of people in Venezuela waiting in line for food: (posted here under fair use from http://www.businessinsider.com/long-food-lines-are-in-venezuela-2014-2 )

You can read all about how this came to be in this blog post that I wrote.

Sanders also  said:

“I favor the public ownership of utilities, banks and major industries.”

CNN reported that Sanders was in favor of nationalizing

“the energy industry, public ownership of banks, telephone, electric, and drug companies and of the major means of production such as factories and capital”

So here’s what we know about Sanders, based on his own words:

1) He wants the government to take ownership of major industries.

2) He wants people to have to wait in line for food.

3) He wants people to have fewer choices when it comes to consumer goods.

4) He supports a system where the general population does not have access to certain consumer goods, and only people with the right connections can get them.

5) He supports a system that uses prison labor to manufacture consumer goods.

6) He supports a system that pays these prison workers only 65 cents an hour.

Here are some of my other blog posts about Bernie Sanders:

Bernie Sanders does not want you to see these photographs of the health care that regular Cubans get

Bernie Sanders makes global warming and income inequality worse by spending his campaign donations on private jets

Bernie Sanders said it’s a “good thing” when people have to wait in line for food. Meanwhile, in the real world, this is what it’s actually like to wait in line for food in Venezuela.

Bernie Sanders wants to do the same things to the U.S. that Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro did to Venezuela

The only way that rich people could pay Bernie Sanders’s proposed annual 8% wealth tax would be by selling enough stock to get the money to pay the tax. This would drive down stock prices, and would hurt every single middle class person who has a pension, a 401K, or an IRA.
