Yesterday Governor Howard Dean tweeted out this little gem in regards to free speech and offensive speech (specifically Ann Coulter’s doomed Berkley visit). Keep in mind as you’re reading that this is a man who once wanted to be the leader of the free world and actually expected people to vote for him to do that job.
Hate speech is not protected by the first amendment. https://t.co/DOct3xcLoY

Don’t worry, Twitter took him to task right quick.
@GovHowardDean This man ran for president.

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

@GovHowardDean Hate speech is protected. Two words … Skokie Illinois or three words … Westboro Baptist Church.

@GovHowardDean Wrong. Lucky for you, ignorant speech is also guaranteed protection.

Don’t quit your day job, Governor.
@GovHowardDean Don't quit your day job … whatever it is, because the law, particularly constitutional law, ain't your bag.
