Here’s the thing: I tell truths that people don’t want known, and so they label what I do “hate speech.” And in saying that “hate speech” does not have First Amendment protection, Howard Dean, who is a former Governor and is supposed to know the Constitution, reveals his ignorance of and contempt for the freedom of speech.
In effect, what Howard Dean is saying is that he wants to live in a dictatorship where some authority decides that certain speech is “hate speech” and outlaws it — or else he thinks he lives in one already. He wants to see a United States in which people’s opinions and views are outlawed, and others are mandated by law.
That is just the opposite of what the U.S. Constitution provides for. And it is exactly what I am fighting against in my work.
Howard Dean is abysmally ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, and here reveals his dark, authoritarian heart.
