Howard Dean mocked for totalitarian stance on ‘hate speech’; Judge Jeanine warns, it’s not so funny

Is former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean’s latest stunt part of a bigger plan by a Party that’s imploding?

In a tweet on Thursday in response to conservative author Ann Coulter’s impending trip to the University of California, Berkeley, the former Democrat National Committee chair said that “Hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment.”

Fox News contributor Judge Jeanine Pirro believes that Dean didn’t send that message because he has no idea what the Constitution says, but because it is only the beginning of the left’s assault on the free speech of conservatives.

“This is just the beginning. You mark my words,” Pirro warned on “Fox & Friends” on Friday. “Where the left is now, to silence the right — and they have been silencing the right in so many ways — they are now going to say ‘if you say things we don’t like it is not protected by the First Amendment.”

“Understand this is a political agenda to shut down the right from saying what they want,” she added. “If they don’t yell you down and prevent you from saying it, what they will do now is create some kind of a limit.”

Pirro explained that the only speech that is outlawed is dangerous speech like “yelling fire in a crowded theater.”

“Hate speech is protected speech,” she said. “You can say whatever you want as long as it is not something that is criminalized. And by Howard Dean saying that, they are changing the paradigm, they are changing the First Amendment. The Founding Fathers are twisting in their graves.”

In 2015 the left leaning Washington Post explained that there is no “hate speech” exemption to the First Amendment.

And Dean was roundly lambasted on social media for his ridiculous statement.
