Former Chairman of the Democratic Party Howard Dean and current Chairman Tom Perez both were in the news last week. In one case, we got a full assault on free speech and in the other, a comment that people with anti-abortion beliefs were simply not welcome in the Democratic Party under any circumstances, as if reinforcing the assault on free speech.
Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean
Howard Dean, former VT governor, presidential candidate and Chair of the Democratic Party this week offered his thoughts on free speech in America. Dean said there were limits to free speech and anything that was ‘hate speech’ was not protected, he said (going against every known Supreme Court ruling in history) Of course, who would determine what was ‘hate speech’ and not protected? Well, Dean and his leftist anti- 1st amendment friends, of course.
Dean went further to support Cal-Berkeley and the recent cancellation of conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s speech there because she ‘incited violence’ by her views. But even in his inherently dangerous assault on free speech, Dean and others are not even consistent in their arguments: don’t think they give a ‘free pass’ on racist and hateful speech Rep. Keith Ellison, Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Ellison spent years working for Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. You remember Louis Farrakhan, the black nationalist who spoke of “white devils” and was an avowed anti-Semite. But because he’s a liberal, it’s ok. Standards only apply to people liberals disagree with.
Not to be outdone by the former Party Chairman, current Party head Tom Perez also made news last week when he said that no Democrat should ever be pro-life.
“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”
The radicalization of the Democratic Party by its elitist officials seems in full swing.
