Louie Gohmert all but endorsed Bernie Sanders in an interview on Breitbart News Daily when he said, “When everybody is in heaven, socialism will be great.”
But then he added, “But in this world it’s never worked.”
Right Wing Watch reported that Gohmert, who endorsed Texas Senator Ted Cruz in his bid for the presidency, was talking about Donald Trump’s attack on Pope Francis. Gohmert agrees with Trump that the pontiff should just shut his pie hole when it comes to matters of climate change and wealth inequality, although he does admit that attacking Pope Francis just might bite Trump in the butt at some future date. Which, of course, would be good for Cruz.
Gohmert went on to spout the lie “He (the Pope) can’t see that socialism, anywhere it’s ever been done, it’s always led to, you know, just a totalitarian government.”
Wow, I’ll bet the people in Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Ireland, New Zealand, and Belgium – the top 9 western socialist countries in the world – would be surprised to hear that they’re living under a dictatorship.
