Howard Dean’s Latest Attack on Free Speech Must Not Stand

Howard Dean, failed Presidential candidate and political punchline, has found himself in the limelight a bit more frequently as of late.

For a name that was once universally know for this distinctly silly “battle cry” years ago, Dean has been quiet on the DC scene for some time now.  This had led many to believe that the democrat could soon be eyeing public office again, especially with the 2020 presidential election looming.

If so, get ready for a lot more jokes like this one from the almighty Dave Chappelle:

In Dean’s latest quest for airtime, he has made an incredibly bold statement that should disqualify him from holding any public office again, declaring that free speech mechanisms on the internet should be made culpable to the hate crimes committed by their users.

The response by Dean was aimed at Gab.ai – a free speech promoting Twitter alternative that seeks to keep the First Amendment alive online in the wake of Twitter, Facebook, and Google’s apparent attempts to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

Dean is not only attempting to convey a dangerous message about the culpability of those within earshot of hate crimes, but he is actively working to undermine our right to free speech.  Sure, some of what we see on the internet is ugly, but if we don’t learn to recognize this ugliness through practice, we are doomed.

Remember always, in a liberty-forward nation, exposure to the people is the best disinfectant.  The opinions floating around the Ivory Towers in Silicon Valley mean nothing if they are not pursuant to our Constitution’s guaranteed rights.

Biden Condemns Trump for Using the Word ‘Lynching,’ But Said the Same Thing In 1998

Ain’t that something?

Democrats can literally quote themselves from decades past and then argue they didn’t say what they said. Doesn’t even matter if their words are on record. If that sounds funny to you, it’s because it is. They are ridiculous. President Trump for example, if he wanted to, could pull a word-for-word sentence from Joe Biden’s past, blast Biden for using it, then Biden would claim he never said it. That’s how Democrats operate. It’s just lie after lie. On Tuesday, Trump used the word “lynching” to describe how he’s being treated by Congressional liberals. Naturally, the left blew a gasket. Biden, himself, wasn’t pleased with 45’s words. But Biden is pretty much a comedian at this point. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was quick to attack President Donald Trump on Tuesday after Trump referred to impeachment as a “lynching,” which is the same term that Biden used in 1998 to describe the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton. “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992 Impeachment is not “lynching,” it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It’s despicable. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1186691273870233601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186691273870233601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F1998-remarks-from-biden-surface-after-he-attacks-trumps-lynching-remarks WATCH: While Biden has called Trump’s lynching…
