Video of Howard Dean: “The Republican Party is Gay-bashing, Muslim-bashing, Latino-bashing, immigrant-bashing, women-bashing every day”

posted at 1:16 pm on April 5, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Howard Dean has at it (h/t Greg Hengler):

Wow. How to respond? First, give me a moment to overcome my shock and disappointment. No matter how many times it happens, I’m always astonished when somebody essentially calls me a hater. Howard Dean doesn’t know who I am, but that’s basically what he just did. Because I maintain that marriage is between one man and one woman, because I believe radical Muslims have an anti-America agenda, because I’m not in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants, because I don’t want to pay for Sandra Fluke’s contraception, I’m bashing gays, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants and, er, women?

Allow me to submit, Mr. Dean, that the opposite of love is not hate; it is use. Those who hate me at least recognize me as human, a force with which to be reckoned, a legitimate source of ideas. Those who use me consider me nothing more than a means to an end. Those who use me dehumanize me. Does the Democratic Party really love gays, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants and women in the sense of wanting what’s best for them? Or do they just use ‘em for their votes? I’m really asking, Mr. Former DNC Chairman.

Occasionally, Democrats give me the distinct impression that their positions on, say, gay marriage or immigration are based more on the desire to win votes than cohesive principles. It’s suspicious, for example, that the president’s official position is against gay marriage but “evolving.” It’s almost as though he’s just waiting for an overwhelming majority of Americans to be in favor of gay marriage before he switches his position. Reducing gays, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants and women to their concerns over gay-specific, Muslim-specific, Latino-specific, immigrant-specific and women-specific positions reduces them to something less than a whole, entire, complex person. But no person is reducible to the tiniest sliver of himself — his sexuality, his religion, his ethnicity, his immigrant status, his gender. We all care — broadly — about human flourishing. That’s what Republicans want — a prosperous, flourishing, fully human society. That’s what Paul Ryan’s plan sets out to achieve by reforming the social safety net, so, come the 2030s, we still have a social safety net. Why do the Democrats want it to disappear?

While I cannot speak for gays, Muslims, Latinos or immigrants, I can say that, as a woman, I have found the Democratic Party’s approach to my vote far less loving and far more insulting than the Republican Party’s approach to that vote. While Democrats reduce me to nothing more than my sexuality and assume that I cannot even pay for my own birth control, Republicans appeal to me as a whole person, to my ability to take personal responsibility for myself, to work hard, to reap the benefits of my labors and to voluntarily share those benefits with whose who truly aren’t able to be responsible for themselves. The Republican approach to my vote is profoundly empowering, even if it’s also demanding. How it it anything less than loving of me to wish for everyone — gays, Muslim, Latinos, immigrants, women and men alike — to experience that same feeling of empowerment?

I was under the assumption you were a Christian, Tina. Not saying your aren’t, just reminding you that you shouldn’t be surprised. Just remember John 15:

18“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’b If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.

This is just par for the course for liberal bigots as well, so that shouldn’t surprise you either.

Hey, Missy!

Why did President Kennedy fire Harris Wofford as his Special Assistant for Civil Rights and chairman of the Subcabinet Group on Civil Rights in 1962?

Why did Robert F Kennedy sat::

“I didn’t lose much sleep about Negroes. I didn’t think about them much.”

- Robert Kennedy, A Memoir, Jack Newfield

Why did Attorney General Robert F Kennedy release a statement criticising the Freedom Marchers?

In an interview with Anthony Lewis on 4 December 1964, why did Robert F Kennedy say this about Martin Luther King, his leadership, and the civil rights’ movement of non-violence:

“[T]here was a lot of feeling that the Negroes didn’t know exactly what they wanted and that they were not very well led”.

“We weren’t thinking of the Negroes in Mississippi or Alabama – what should be done for them. We were thinking of what needed to be done in Massachusetts.”

- Robert F Kennedy, 4 December 1964

“Negroes… were traditionally Democratic; but they had reservations about Senator Kennedy and they didn’t think badly of Nixon.”

- Robert F Kennedy, 4 December 1964

Ya think? Nixon was part of an administration that pushed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which Senator John F Kennedy voted against. RFK musta been a genius.

Mr. Dean and liberals, disagreeing is not bigotry. You disagree with us, but we don’t get to call you bigoted because of that. Grow up! In modern society people will disagree with you, and adults learn to deal with that. Throwing around “bigot” just shows how unmodern and immature your ideology is. Defend your ideas for once without resorting to name calling as a distraction.

Howard Dean is the personification of the Progressive, Liberal, Democratic party, demonstrating in 1 shining moment the hypocrisy & lies that continuously flow froth from their mouths. Was it not the Democrats in the House of Representatives who rushed into action without knowing any facts to declare the Taryvon Martin incident was a definite case of ‘racial profiling’ and a ‘hate crime’, the murder of a black boy by a ‘white guy’. Turns out that Zimmerman, the shooter, is a minority – a Latino, not a ‘white guy’. Zimmerman is also an advocate for holding police more accountable, something that doesn’t endear yourself to them & make them want to cover anything up for you. Zimmerman also tutors minority kids for free in his spare time, not the kind of behavior you’d expect from a ‘racist white guy’ who tracked Trayvon Martin down like a rabid dog and shot him in the street’, huh?!

Just today it is being reported that the 3rd major Media source just admitted to lying and manipulating the news they reported in order to stir up racial tension, increasing ratings/revenue. The 1st was the manipulation of the 911 Call audio. This latest consisted in the news source having the police footage of Zimmerman arriving at the police stattion. Even though the media source had an enlarged copy of the footage, which shows the gash in the back of Zimmerman’s head, they only released the distant footage that didnn’t show the wound.

Muslim-bashing?! Well if you condier that the GOP was not the one who fought an illegal war without Constitutional approval to hel Al Qaeda, perpetrators of 9/11, overthrow Qadaffi and acquire their own country – if you consider that ‘Muslim-bashing, then I guess you could make that accusation. If you condier that the GOP was not the one who declared the terrorist-connected Muslim Brotherhood should be part of Egypt’s future, helped them take over Egypt’s government, & just held talks with them in the White House, then you could make that accusation of ‘Muslim-Bashing’. If you call refusing to go on a middle-eastern ‘US apology tour’ ‘Muslim Bashing’ I guess you could make that accusation.

‘Woman-bashing’?! Obama openly violates the US Constitution, specifically the 1st amendment, by making a SECOND Un-Constitutional mandate within Obamacare, mandating that religious institutions supply BOTH contraceptives as well as ABORTION-INDUCING drugs, get slapped on the hand in public for it, then attempt to salvage any credibility/respect and deflect heat for the attempted violation by laughably spinning it as ‘the GOP hates women and are against contraceptives. Yeah, if you can get people to completely forget about Obama’s latest assault on the Constitution and on Religious institutions, then I am sure you can potentially sell the ridiculos idea that the GOP is against women. While we are at it, let’s completely forget that Obama just met with the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House and is supporting their recent takeover of the Egytian government and is supporting their candidate’s run for President. I am sure the fact that Obama is backing an Islamic Extremist who embraces highly oppressive (especially to women) Sharia law, Iran, & turning their backs on the US will only add to the ability for Dean to sell these accusation!

Good grief – the man made more sense when he was just screaming like a mad-man — “Yearrgh!”

You can’t blame the Democrats for Row vs Wade, if that’s what you’re referring to. Republican appointed Justices passed it 7-2.

Supreme Court Justices who ruled on Roe vs Wade, 1973

Republican appointees
Burger, Warren Earl appointed by Nixon
Brennan, William J., Jr. appointed by Eisenhower
Stewart, Potter appointed by Eisenhower
Blackmun, Harry A. appointed by Nixon
Powell, Lewis F., Jr. appointed by Nixon

I know HA likes the traffic, but wouldn’t it be refreshing to have a thread where no one copied and pasted a comment and then commented on it..?

No.

Indifference and apathy are also known opposites to love, and indifference and apathy are what leftisproglibturds primarily show to these groups in between elections.

Do you know what Gov. Corbett of PA said when asked about the ultrasound rape madness going on in the republican party?

“just close your eyes”

liberal4life on April 5, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Just out of curiosity, are you purposely trying to mislead people as to the meaning of that quote in hopes that they are stupid enough to believe you? Or are you in fact so stupid you don’t understand that quote yourself?

Ampersand on April 5, 2012 at 2:21 PM

Because I maintain that marriage is between one man and one woman, because I believe radical Muslims have an anti-America agenda, because I’m not in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants, because I don’t want to pay for Sandra Fluke’s contraception, I’m bashing gays, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants and, er, women?

yes, you are being disingenuous, you are being disingenuous and yes

DBear on April 5, 2012 at 2:22 PM

You’re retarded.

I can’t believe you have the ability to stay alive.

Natural selection is proven false just by your very existence, for if it were true you would have forgotten to breathe while typing any number of the piles of dung you regularly leave upon HotAir’s doorstep.

You make me weep for mankind in general and America specifically. If we could breed or accept the likes of you into our country then we are truly doomed to fail.

I say again, You. Are. Retarded.

And not in the traditional sense, but in the I choose to be the biggest moron I can possibly be. I choose to ignore history, science, math, logic and common sense.

You’re a retard by choice and that’s heartbreakingly sad. I’m going to go cry over your abject stupidity.

That is a horrible, horrible idea. For shame. Your punishment is you have to cut and paste ten of Liberal4Life’s comments, and comment on every one of them. Then you must comment on your comments. After you do this, other posters will comment on your comments, and you will be expected to defend them with more comments.

You must do this while listening to an ipod with every one of Barack Obama’s speeches on it. When you have finished, then you will be forgiven.

For thousands of years, mankind has only cared about the harvest and the fruit of their loins. Then along comes this self-loathing death cult called liberalism.

John the Libertarian on April 5, 2012 at 2:14 PM

I can only compare it to the advent of the computer. Like the technological advances of the cpu we’re watching liberals ‘outstupid’ each other at a breathtaking and seemingly impossible to sustain rate.

At some point, which I believe will be arriving soon if it’s not here already(thank you Mr Dean and L4L), they will not be able to get any dumber because they’ll start walking in front of cars like deer.

While the advancing of processing speed and memory compactability(sp?) is hindered only by the limits of our human brains and production, liberal stupidity (but I repeat myself) has no such hinderance except maybe the availability of the aforementioned cars.

l4l hijacks every thread. Every one.

John the Libertarian on April 5, 2012 at 2:08 PM

She may see that as her “job”, or at least “life”.

Personally, I think every time she puts up a new comment we should ask her if she was raped when she went to the ob/gyn for her yearly scheduled exam.

So what if she tries to hijack the threads. She doesn’t really deflect the articles nor does she truly deflect the discussions. She and her friends just add levity.

Of course, we’re not laughing with them.

Sad really. Doesn’t make me feel good though.

You can blame Democrats anyway. William O. Douglas was the one who came up with the “penumbras and emanations” concept on which Roe V Wage was based.

You speak for everyone? How very important you must be. You must have missed the majority of Americans who now oppose abortion, and believe me, our outrage at the wholesale slaughter of innocent unborn children is far from ‘faux’.

Correction. YOU don’t believe it.

But the problem there is that you are a proven liar and bigot who supports and endorses murdering Republicans to get your way.

I already demonstrated what a lying hypocrite your Howard Dean is. And that’s all your Obama Party has left — lies and hypocrisy.

Obama has failed. Obama is an incompetent fool and a child who proves daily that the Obama Party racists like yourself put skin color ahead of character.

you are right, I don’t care about pregnancies that are stopped painlessly in the 1st or 2nd trimester. It’s a woman’s right to decide whether to have the child or not. I care for the citizens who are actually BORN! whereas you care only for fetuses and don’t give a damn about the welfare of those actually BORN especially the poor!
