Howard Dean: Ann Coulter´s ´hate speech
is not protected by the first amendment´

Washington Examiner, by Ariella Phillips

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/21/2017 9:05:42 AM

Former Vermont governor and Democratic National Comittee chairman Howard Dean called out conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Twitter. (Snip) The comment was in response to a former New York Times reporter who tweeted, "Free Speech Defenders Don´t Forget: Ann Coulter once said: My only regret w/ Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building." The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that "fighting words" are not constitutionally protected, meaning that the words would have to directly incite violence. Timothy McVeigh was an American terrorist responsible for the Oklahoma City bombings that killed 168 people and injured

Comments:
Ahh yes, the ignorant hack Dean rears his ugly head. The behavior of those on the left is just getting worse. It is just stunning and outrageous that they are destroying the foundation of this country. I don´t know what it´s going to take to stop this, but it needs to stop soon. We can´t survive as a nation with the anarchist and fascist behavior from the Democrats.

We have refujihadis killing people around the world and this knitwit is making noise about something someone said. The left hates Ann Coulter because she dare believe in something that the left despises (freedom).

Yet the left welcomes refujihadis with open arms, and they are busy killing innocents as their interpretation of their playbook.

Not much info to the article, but it does raise a curious point. It says the Supreme Court has ruled that "fighting words" are NOT part of protected speech. Really? How then to explain why burning or desecrating the American flag is protected? And does Mr Dean not understand ´sarcasm´ when he hears it? I´m pretty sure lots of folks have also said things like it´s too bad 9-11 events didn´t also take out (insert offending institution here). And who determines what constitutes ´fighting words´?

To mad dog "Yeeaaaah.." Liberals like Dean anything that they disagree with politically is hate speech. If it is likely to bring the truth about Left wing intentions in front of voters ready to go to the polls then it is even worse. Should be taken with a fitful of salt.

Dean is such a tool. The SC has said that some speech might not be protected by the 1st amendment but they have never ruled that there is speech (or speakers) which can be banned ahead of time.

The first amendment protects almost all forms of speech. There is no hate speech exception. Perhaps Dean is thinking about Canadian law, which does ban hate speech. At any rate, he´s quite confused here.

Elected "Conservatives" voted for "hate laws", and legitimized "hate speech" as a label which has been used to shame and delegitimize "hateful" speakers and their potential listeners.

Virtually ALL speech IS PROTECTED by the First Amendment, but the politics make it another third rail for politicians and judges. Another reason why never to trust or love politicians...they will sell out because so many will believe their denial later.

So Howie to agree with you I have to believe that Madison and co. intended to make speech illegal and the suppression of said speech legal as long as those ho oppose it are willing to use or claim they would use violence in reaction to it?

So if I say I´ll beat up a liberal if MSNBC doesn´t take Rachael Maddow off the air her speech isn´t protected?

Recalculations of illegal

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/19/2017 6:42:01     Post Reply
A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

CNN’s Jim Acosta is incredibly frustrated with the communications team in Trump’s White House, arguing on Monday that the non-answers, off-camera briefings, and stonewalling does a disservice to the American people. On Monday, press secretary Sean Spicer opted to hold a press gaggle off-camera with no audio, leaving correspondents to work only with transcripts. Acosta, who is usually quite even-keeled on camera, became visibly agitated when discussing how difficult it can be to get answers out of the White House. “The White House press secretary is getting to a point, Brooke, where he’s just kind of useless,” Acosta argued. “You

Departing Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz is disappointed that President Donald Trump’s administration has not been responsive to congressional oversight requests. Chaffetz, the former chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said that Trump’s administration is almost worse than the previous one when it comes to responding to oversight requests from Congress. “The reality is, sadly, I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration,” Chaffetz said Sunday on Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson.

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick has compared police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen after a Minnesota cop was acquitted of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of a black motorist. Kaepernick, who famously protested police brutality by refusing to stand during the national anthem last season, tweeted an image over the weekend of a police badge beside a fugitive slave patrol. The image read: ´You can´t ignore your history. Always remember who they are.´ He was responding to the news on Friday that Officer Jeronimo Yanez was not guilty of murdering 32-year-old Philando Castile at traffic stop in a St Paul suburb last year.

While Spicer´s new title is still being decided, his new role will be considered a promotion to a position at the level of deputy chief of staff. Unclear is who will take over the regular duties as press secretary -- though President Trump is fond of Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ performance to date -- or who will become

Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder.

Gerry Martin isn’t sure he will ever tell a police officer during a traffic stop that he has a concealed-weapon permit — and possibly a weapon — on him. The acquittal of a Minnesota officer in the death of a licensed gun owner who volunteered that he had a gun seconds before being fatally shot during a traffic stop adds to the worries of African-American gun owners about how they are treated by police and society. Acknowledging that they have a weapon, they said, can open them up to violence from police, who can then claim they feared

Multiple witnesses claim a man jumped out the knife, and there are reports that at least one victim was stabbed. Bystanders reportedly wrestled the alleged perpetrator to the ground as officers arrived on the scene just moments later. Police have confirmed the incident occurred as
