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.
