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

Howard Dean

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.

Trump Takes Second Place in 2024 GOP Candidate Polling

Number one may come as a surprise to you.

Published

Former President Donald Trump is undoubtedly still the most influential man in the Republican Party, and will likely remain so for some time yet to come. This is due in no small part to his ultra-loyal and sizable following, who have already proven their willingness to spurn his enemies to prove a point.  Not receiving the Trump seal of approval is going to be a hard hurdle for many elected officials to overcome, and so they tend to stay on his better side. But is Trump still the imminent 2024 presidential candidate for the Republicans?  Maybe not. A straw poll indicates Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) slightly edges out former President Donald Trump in presidential 2024 approval. Centennial Institute surveyed respondents at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on Saturday in which participants “were asked to select each potential candidate they would approve for president in 2024.” The top five ranked as follows: Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) 74.12 percent Donald Trump 71.43 percent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) 42.86 percent Mike Pompeo 39.35 percent Sen. Tim Scott (R) 35.58 percent Gover DeSantis has been working diligently to raise his national image in recent months, making a splash in the mainstream media for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, and those who would use the pandemic to exert undue authority over the citizens of the Sunshine State.

Biden Land Management Nominee Advocates for Human Population Control

And let’s not overlook her ties to an eco-terrorism plot.

Joe Biden has been busy in his first few months in office.  Not only has the 46th President spent a great deal of time looking to undo as much of his predecessor’s legacy as possible, but he is also working through all of the normal trappings of the transitional process. This includes the nomination and confirmation of a number of officials to oversee various departments within our government. One of the latest to go up for approval seems to have some strange ideas about how best to serve the planet. Tracy Stone-Manning, President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), argued in her graduate thesis that Americans need to engage in population control to protect the environment. Stone-Manning has already come under fire in recent weeks for her connection to a tree spiking incident – an ecoterrorism tactic – in Idaho in the 1980s, where she traded her court testimony for legal immunity. Her theories on keeping the environment safe were controversial, to say the least. But her past links to ecoterrorists aren’t the only controversial material in her background. In her graduate thesis, a copy of which was reviewed by Fox News, Stone-Manning also urged Americans to have no more than two kids in order to protect the environment. “The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact,” states the thesis, which was first flagged by the Daily Caller on Thursday. “We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans.” Stone-Manning created a series of eight advertisements for her thesis that focused on the issues of overgrazing, overpopulation, a mining law from the late 1800s and the lumber industry. One ad refers to a human child as an “environmental hazard” and encouraged Americans…
