Socialist Bernie Sanders Delivers Policy Speech at Campus of Churchill’s Famed ‘Iron Curtain’ Speech

On March 5, 1946, former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill delivered his “Iron Curtain Speech” at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. Churchill condemned the Soviet Union’s policies in Europe and declared, “From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent.”

Since that time Communism has been tried and failed in dozens of countries around the globe.
