The Redbaiting Gets Ratcheted Up
This started with a tweet from a Biden surrogate:
Found the public transportation systems to be nice.

The "team" editing on this hitpiece is painfully obvious. They wanted people to focus on the misleading caption of the original tweet: "Bernie Sanders lavishes praise on Communist Russia, preferring the Soviet Union to the American way of life."
Right before Bernie praised how accessible culture was to Soviet workers, he discussed how much American friendliness, technology, etc. were admired by Russians. During the press conference, he was also critical of the lack of democracy in the Soviet Union. The full press conference can be viewed here.
It seems that Lindy Li, the original tweeter of this fuckery is very proud that warmonger Bill Kristol and other leading neocons are retweeting her edited video to amplify it many times over. Let's not forget that Bill and his gang pushed the Iraq invasion that killed many thousands and still haunts us today. And don't forget that Kristol is head of a well funded effort targeting conservative independents to vote for Buttigieg or Klobuchar (my guess is most will opt not to vote for Buttigieg).
We all knew this was going to come. It's going to get worse. We really need to stand strong and united in solidarity to support Bernie now more than ever before. First they came for . . . .
