Havana, Cuba — Bernie Sanders, the popular Democratic Socialist Senator from Vermont, has gained a large following across the United States. But who is the man behind the glasses? Gish Gallop takes you into Bernie’s past. According to astonishing claims from various sources, Senator Bernie Sanders was born at Havana City Hospital in Cuba to an American Mother Dorothy Glasburg and a Polish Father.
The Sanders family lived in the Cuban city of Santa Clara and the young Sanders grew to admire Che Guevara and Fidel Castro for the caring way in which they treated the people of Cuba. A teenage Sanders could be seen running behind Guevara’s motorcade every morning and he took to marching in what is now a famous protest march in the early 1960s in Havana.
However the Sanders family relationship soured after Bernie was caught having sex with a niece of Che Guevara’s. Bernie and his family were forced to flee Cuba on the trunk lid of a 1960 Chevrolet converted into a boat. He was found floating near Florida by the U.S. Coast Guard.
After a few years in Miami, the Sanders family purchased a Volkswagen Bus and traveled to New York City, where Bernie settled in and joined the Young American Socialist Movement. It was there that Bernie learned about his roots from American Bolshevik leaders in Brooklyn, a movement that still survives today in a more bearded, hipster form.
His involvement with the YAS changed Bernie’s life. He studied hard at Brooklyn College, where his favorite saying became, “are you bolsheviking me!” He later attended the Univ. Of Chicago, where he would trade guns to South Chicago locals in exchange for votes and engaged in what are now famous civil rights protests.
As the young Sanders matured, he moved to Vermont, which is where his vision of American Democratic Socialism began to take shape. It was something he had dreamed about since his days as a Cuban young man.
Today as a Senator from Vermont and former Presidential Candidate for President, he can finally complete his dream and bring the lessons of Castro and Guevara to The United States.
