Examples of overthrowing in a Sentence

  1. Fernand Amandi:

    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? Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, has refused to back down from his comments arguing during Tuesday nights debate in South Carolina that former President Barack Obama had once praised the Castro regimes progress on education and healthcare. The Vermont lawmaker said there is a reticence among Americans to look back at Washingtons own history of overthrowing foreign governments and supporting dictators. It might be a good idea to be honest of American foreign policy and that is the American government helped overthrow governments in Chile, Nicaragua, and Iran, Sanders said in reference to U.S. support in overthrowing leaders in those countries in the 1970s and 80s. Sanders reference to Obama did not sit well with former Vice President Joe Biden, who claimed that his boss never embraced an authoritarian regime, while former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg lamented that the candidates were debating about Cold War-era policies. This is not about what coups happened in the 1970s and 80s, this is about the future, Buttigieg said. Sanders comments about the Castro regime could play a large role in how he fares in Floridas March 17 primary. Sanders socialist identification and his willingness to praise leftist regimes have given his Democratic opponents ammunition to question his electability in a state with a large Cuban American population that remains fiercely skeptical of leftist governments. In Florida, where Hispanics account for nearly one in every five voters, that skepticism could present a major hurdle for Sanders in the states primary, and for Democrats hoping to win Floridas 29 electoral votes in November. According to an Associated Press survey, about a third of Cuban American midterm voters identified as Democrats. However, Democrats hardly have a lock on that vote in battleground Florida, particularly among the nearly 2 million Floridians of Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan origin. In 2018, Republican Ron DeSantis narrowly won Floridas governors mansion. While more than two-fifths of Florida Latinos voters favored DeSantis overall, a clear majority of Cuban American voters 57 percent cast their support for the Republican. Critics say Sanders needs to more strongly disavow Cuba and other authoritarian regimes. Its not just about Cuban American voters, its Hispanic voters as well, many of whom would never consider voting for an avowed socialist ....

  2. Ryan Mauro:

    Supporting them against Iran is akin to supporting Hamas against Al Qaeda, as someone who has been supportive of overthrowing Assad for years before the civil war, it pains me to say that overthrowing him today would only lead to much more bloodshed. The best scenario is the division of the country between the Assad regime, the Syrian Democratic Forces and Arab forces that are as close to secular-democratic as possible. And from there, we can hope that a safe alternative to Assad’s rule can eventually rise and support liberal elements to make it happen.

  3. Mark Levin:

    The vast majority of people are not rising up trying to overthrow the country. It’s not the proletariat, rising up, overthrowing the Bourgeoisie. And it never is, whether it's Cuba or North Korea or China or Russia or any of those so-called revolutions, these are Marxist efforts by a smaller percentage of society to control a larger percentage of society, these are not peasant revolutions.

  4. Zimbabwe Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe:

  5. Security John Lee:

    The operation today targets the active elements who are suspected to be involved in the crime of overthrowing or interfering seriously to destroy the Hong Kong government’s legal execution of duties.
