  • Howard Dean: No, really, the First Amendment doesn’t protect hate speech

    I grudgingly admire this dude’s willingness to go all-in on his position after having been scolded last week by half the lawyers on the Internet. If you’re out to censor your political opponents on “hate speech” grounds, you can’t let some clucking by First Amendment experts frighten you. He mentions three cases that supposedly make Ann Coulter’s right to speak at Berkeley a “close call” which ultimately can be infringed on “safety” grounds or whatever. One is the Chaplinsky decision from 1942, in which the Supreme Court held that “fighting words” can be banned because they’re likely to lead to...

    I was always a big Bernie Sanders fan. In the darkest days of the Bush administration, he was a big deal. I still remember in 2006 when he won his U.S. Senate seat and thinking it was just the beginning; democratic-socialism was finally blowing up the way it should and that he was a legend in the making. Last year I learned some things that made me question why I always loved Bernie Sanders. He was playing dumb about knowing or helping up-and-coming populist Democrats such as himself, and was instead letting the DSCC and the Obama administration pick safe,...
  • Howard Dean on Coulter-Berkeley Controversy: 1st Amendment Doesn't Protect 'Hate Speech,' You Know

    This man was the governor of a state, a leading presidential candidate, and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and he evidently (and wrongly) believes that the Constitution doesn't protect "hate speech" -- a term of art that is by its very nature subjective. In fact, the Constitution protects nearly all speech, with extremely limited exceptions. In response to the disgraceful flare-up over Ann Coulter's scheduled appearance at Berkeley, a New York Times writer dug up and highlighted one of her more inflammatory jokes, the proper response to which is: Okay, so what? I don't find it especially funny at...

    "This is an increasingly common idea, and is not just restricted to failed presidential candidates. It is also an extremely insidious idea, for “hate speech,” contrary to popular belief, is not an objectively quantifiable entity. One’s person’s “hate speech” is another’s outspoken defense of liberty and justice. And there is no basis in the Constitution, or in the numerous Supreme Court decisions interpreting it up to now, for the claim that there is any exclusion of “hate speech” from First Amendment protection. The label of “hate speech” is a tool in the hands of the powerful that they use to...

    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean slammed Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Friday, predicting Schumer's endorsement will hurt Rep. Keith Ellison's (D-Minn.) bid for DNC chairman. “I think Chuck Schumer’s endorsement is the kiss of death,” Dean said at an event supporting rival DNC candidate Pete Buttigieg, the current mayor of West Bend, Ind. “Because I had to say no to Chuck Schumer when he demanded $5 million, because I said, ‘Chuck, you’re not getting it for the DSCC; I’m putting it into local races,” Dean added, referring to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. As DNC chairman,...

    Bernie Sanders -- a registered independent who caucuses with Democrats and fought a lengthy primary battle for the party's nomination this year -- and top allies are touting Rep. Keith Ellison for the job. The Muslim-American congressman from Minnesota currently co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In an email to supporters late Thursday, the Vermont senator said Ellison was uniquely qualified to take on "the political establishment and billionaire class," and that "his experience and perspective would be key to leading the fight against Trump."

    Howard Dean has announced a bid to head up the Democratic Party, a post he held during the Bush administration, in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in Tuesday’s election. “The dems need organization and focus on the young,” Dean tweeted Thursday. “Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again.” The party’s liberal wing has begun jockeying for power since Hillary Clinton’s defeat, arguing that her loss could be attributed to her reluctance to fully focus on economic inequality and tougher Wall Street regulations. …

    Howard Dean said Friday he regrets suggesting — with no evidence — that Donald Trump is a cocaine user. Dean, a former Democratic presidential candidate and a medical doctor, did not apologize to Trump, but for “using innuendo” that contributed to the toxic tone of this year’s campaign. “I apologize for using innuendo,” Dean said on MSNBC, where he’s a contributor. “I don’t think it’s a good thing to do. I don’t think it’s the right thing to do.”

    Well, you can’t say Howard Dean doesn’t have a good sense of humor. The former Vermont governor, whose 2004 presidential campaign was undone by an awkward, frenzied scream that was mocked for years afterward, re-enacted the climax of his infamous speech Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia as he endorsed Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.

    Ultra-Left Dems are habituated to derangement about Conservs. Now it's Cruz--Trump' s God-Talk is just old timely Pol, even Chelsea spouts it. Before it was Cruz, it was Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome, before her it was Dubya Derangement (W). That's just preaching to the Leftist Choir. But Citizens United, now demanding answers about Bubba in N. Korea, that's a SCOTUS Decision, that was the last Dem Senate Majority's focus for overthrowing the 1st Amendment. When leftists finally own up to owning guns, start openly stockpiling and get Bill Ayers to organize national street fighting training, you know Citizens United will...

    Former Gov. Howard Dean (D-Vt.) said Friday that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) should not boast about his freedom from super-PACs given his ties with organized labor. 'I don't hear anybody asking Bernie Sanders for transcripts of some speech he made for a labor union,' he told host Andrea Mitchell on "MSNBC Live." "For Bernie to say he doesn't have a super-PAC…labor unions are super-PACs. Labor unions are super-PACs Democrats like so we don't go after labor unions."

    Stdent protests roiled college campuses Thursday, when Claremont McKenna College's dean of students resigned under pressure over racial tensions and protesters at more than 100 colleges and universities nationwide demanded the cancellation of student debt. Dean Mary Spellman at Claremont McKenna stepped down after she sparked a campus protest and hunger strikes by two students this week over her email to a Latina student saying she would work to serve those who "don't fit our CMC mold." Spellman later apologized but her remarks appeared to be a tipping point for students who have pressed the campus for months for greater...
