In an interview with Right Wing Watch, the 2016 GOP presidential candidate and Kentucky Senator had a few choice words to say about the Democratic hopeful.
A Bernie Sanders presidency could lead to “mass genocide”? Really? Well, that’s what Rand Paul believes of the self-proclaimed Democratic socialist.
Paul went as far as comparing Sanders to Josef Stalin:
“It amazes me and it actually kind of scares me. I think it’s not an accident of history that most of the times when socialism has been tried that attendant with that has been mass genocide of people or any of those who object to it. Stalin killed tens of millions of people. Mao killed tens of millions of people. Pol Pot killed tens of millions of people.”
Paul continued, stating, “when you have a command economy, when everything is dictated from one authority, that’s socialism, but it doesn’t come easily to those who resist it.”
What do you make of Paul’s comments, vigilant viewers?Do you agree or disagree?Be sure to sound off below!
