Meghan McCain ripped into Democrats for supporting socialism this week, specifically calling out people like Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for praising the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
“I honestly see this as political in our country as well,” McCain began on Monday’s episode of “The View.” “When you have people like Bernie Sanders who have praised Fidel Castro and said that it was ‘unfair to condemn a communist regime,’ I will be interested to see what the reaction will be like in this country.”
McCain went on to say that many Democrats have been outspoken about their support of socialism.
“We have a party where in the Democratic Party, white liberal dems define their party 44% to 36% as supporting socialism over capitalism, while Hispanic Americans in this country support capitalism 47% to 28%,” she said.
Not stopping there, McCain added that much of the blame for this falls on the shoulders of someone like Sanders.
“Part of this is because when you have a party like the Democratic party who has people like Bernie Sanders leading it and a faction of the party praising people like Fidel Castro, Hispanic Americans and Cuban Americans a lot of times have fled regimes like that and don’t want it to come here,” McCain said. “So it will be interesting to see if Cubans right now end up being successful in getting freedom, what the ramifications will be politically in this country.”
McCain ended her rant by slamming any American who praises socialism in any way.
“It’s always why I think even a kernel of talking about socialism or communism in any way in a positive place in the United States of America is not only dangerous but is just asininely stupid,” she said. “And I think we’re seeing in real time the ramifications of that.”
“If there’s one thing people want, they want freedom and democracy, and they want the precious privilege that we have here in the United States of America,” @MeghanMcCain says of Cubans’ anti-government protests. https://t.co/EUEXTc9WNL pic.twitter.com/N6beMXaWwn

This comes as protests have erupted in Cuba over the nation’s communist and socialist regime. The people there have had enough, as unlike most Americans, they’ve seen the dangers of these ideologies firsthand.
