Socialist students proudly promote their own 'breadline' (Seriously)

  • Socialist students at the University of Texas-San Antonio promoted their own "breadline" in a recent tweet.
  • The tweet comes at a time when 2020 Democrat candidates are pushing socialist policies.

Socialist students at the University of Texas-San Antonio encouraged followers to stop by the group's "breadline." 

"Come by our breadline today! We'll be giving out free sandwiches in front of the MH for another hour, so come on by before they're out!" the Young Democratic Socialist Association chapter at UTSA tweeted on April 9.

The tweet calls attention to a common stereotype of socialist countries at a time when the far left in America's Democrat Party is advocating for socialist policies, such as "free" healthcare, universal basic income, and "free" college. Among the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates advocating for such policies is Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic Socialist.

Shortly after Sanders announced his 2020 bid for the presidency in February, video surfaced showing the senator praising the idea of breadlines in 1985. 

"It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries, people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death," Sanders, who at the time was mayor of Burlington, Vermont, said.

President Donald Trump has pushed back hard against these proposed socialist policies from Democrats, saying in his 2019 State of the Union address, "America will never be a socialist country," while referencing the political turmoil, economic uncertainty, and food shortages in the socialist country of Venezuela.
