Not your grandparents' Democrat party

Former Democrat governor of Vermont and former DNC chair Howard Dean recently declared that "hate speech" is not protected by the First Amendment (he even doubled down on that false claim over the weekend). This was in response to someone conveying that Ann Coulter's speaking style, while deplorable, is protected by the First, thus her invitation to speak at the University of California-Berkeley should not have been rescinded. Even someone as uber left as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) knows this.

Then last Friday, current DNC chair Tom Perez essentially said that any pro life Dem politician/candidate is not welcome in today's Democrat party. Meanwhile, Sanders recently campaigned on behalf of Heath Mello, a pro-life Democrat seeking the office of Omaha, NE mayor.

So there you have it. When it comes to free speech and abortion, an avowed socialist is politically to the right of today's mainstream Democrat party.

OK, so we've got the left firstly against the first and second amendments, plus infringing pretty clearly on the 4th with regards to search and seizure....when are they going to insist on quartering soldiers in my home in peacetime?

(I think their hero Barack was starting to make a rumble about gutting the 13th-15th, too, with his proposals for "mandatory volunteerism", too)
