Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 17, 2019

Earlier this year, two minutes of the long-lost videos went viral when a staffer at Chittenden County's Channel 17 posted a compilation of the station's archives online. They featured a shirtless Sanders and other Americans singing "This Land Is Your Land" to their hosts after relaxing in a sauna. A few minutes later, Sanders doled out the gifts to his Russian friends with a towel wrapped around his waist.

But that's only the beginning. The hours of footage include a scene of Sanders sitting with his delegation at a table under a portrait of Vladimir Lenin. Sanders can also be heard extolling the virtues of Soviet life and culture, even as he also acknowledges some of its shortcomings. There are flashes of humor, too, such as his host warning the American guests not to cross the KGB, or else.

To get a real picture of the excesses of unlimited government power, read the Gulag Archipelago. The most ironic thing I ever hear is the left proclaiming "Power to the People" then demanding expanded government power in the same breath.
