Howard Dean is not only the former DNC chair. He’s also a former governor and presidential candidate. You would think he knew better than this.
The First Amendment covers free speech to protect all speech, especially unpopular speech. This should give you a good idea of what we would be dealing with if Democrats had won last fall.
Dean tweeted this:
Hate speech is not protected by the first amendment. https://t.co/DOct3xcLoY

@GovHowardDean Elaborate, please. This strikes me as pretty wrong.

@GovHowardDean That's so obviously wrong even you should know better.

@GovHowardDean And hate speech is whatever the most sensitive college student in America decides on a given day.

@GovHowardDean Can you help me out and explain what things you would jail people for saying?
I assume nothing on the Democrat platform.

That last tweet pretty much nails it.
