Lithuanian immigrant Daiva Gaulyte says Bernie Sanders and his supporters should try visiting a socialist country

An immigrant, who fled communism in her native Lithuania, has spoken out to warn Bernie Sanders supporters of the dangers of socialism, saying they "do not understand what they are doing."

Daiva Gaulyte sent the warning to Sanders and his supporters, telling them they “should go to a socialist country” first to understand what it is really like before trying to change America.

"I thought America is free,” said Gaulyte while attending President Donald Trump’s rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Friday.

"I’ve been in a communist country. I don’t want to have it here.

"The communists took away my grandparents’ land," Gaulyte told Breitbart News.

"They transported them to Siberia, and then when they got all this land, they didn’t know what to do with them because they’re lazy."

"Communists are lazy,” Gaulyte continued.

"There is nothing they can do with that land so they gave lands back to work on it, but it was very difficult to have any kind of profit, but you could work on it because the lands were just sitting there and communists didn’t know what to do with it.”

Gaulyte also explained how she was banned from watching American movies and listening to pop music under the totalitarian Communist regime.

"We were not allowed to watch American movies,” she said.

"We had to hide if someone gets American movie, we close the curtains and watch it so nobody knows.”

Gaulyte also offered advice to those who support Sanders’ bid to become the next president.

"I feel sorry that they do not understand what they are doing,” she concluded.

"Maybe if they really want to experience socialism, they should go to the socialist country and live there for a while so they know what it is.

Meanwhile, Sanders, the frontrunner for the Democrats' presidential nomination, doubled down on his support for some of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's policies.

Speaking during an interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday, Sanders declared that "it's unfair to simply say everything is bad."

Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, pointed to social welfare programs introduced under Castro's regime that he described as redeeming, despite the communist dictator's often repressive human-rights violations against Cubans.

"We're very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know?" Sanders told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did?

"He had a massive literacy program.

"Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?"

Fidel Castro relinquished power to his brother, Raúl, in 2011 after nearly half a century in charge of the island nation; Fidel died in 2016.
