Howard Dean: Republicans “are not American”

Speaking at a fundraiser for a Colorado Democrat, Former DNC Chair and Democrat Presidential candidate Howard Dean sugested that all Republicans should leave the USA because “they are not American.”

 “This country has been sold down the river by the right wing for their own purposes,” Dean told the wildly enthusiastic crowd. “This is a Republican Party that has decided they like power so much that they think it’s okay to win by taking away the right to vote. They are not American. They could be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia. But stay away from our country.”

So, a certain group of people is singled out by the political leadership as the source of all of society’s problems, and the state’s media apparatus is given unlimited license to attack those people. What sort of regimes do this, and what happens to those who are targeted by a political regime as enemies of the state?

At a minimum, Dean wants the USA to be a one-party state without even token opposition to totalitarian rule; because that’s what America is supposed to be, in his mind.

One notes that he is echoing and expanding upon the comments of New York Democrat governor Andrew Cuomo, who told all those nuts who believe in the Constitution and lower taxes they aren’t welcome in his state.

Update: On Monday, President Obama also disparaged the Republican Party as unpatriotic for not rubber-stamping his every rule, decree, and suggestion like an obedient legislature would. And because those unpatriotic, anti-American seditionists insist on trying to hold his administration accountable for scandals in which people have died because of his policies (Benghazi, Fast and Furious, VA).



  1. They are not American. They could be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia. But stay away from our country.

    Or the Republicans can just move to Canada, since we don’t have the right to vote here, either.

  2. With that sort of thinking, I do wonder if the 2014 congressional elections turn against the DNC and the Party in-general if we’ll even have an election in 2016. (ref. Germany March 1933)

  3. Am I nuts to wonder if the left is trying to foment a civil war in the US? Every inflammatory word from their mouths is designed to set one group of the people against another.

    And, given the uselessness of the GOP, I think it’s in on the game.

    Sounds like secession is becoming an option for some states – the sooner, the better.

  5. Welcome to the Rebel Alliance, KCRob.

    Add me to the list as a delegate from the Lone Star wing. Working as I do in academia, you could say I’m the undercover Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn smack in the middle of the Politburo.

  7. “They could be … in the Ukraine”? Mr Dean had better avoid traveling to Ukraine. His statement will offend everyone in Ukraine, left, right and center.

  8. What the left doesn’t know is that not everyone are the craven cowards that make up their base. They think it will be fought by tanks going up to peoples houses and having them run off to camps, when it would actually be fought under Bill Clintons rules of engagement from when he fought the indigenous European Serbs that where trying to deport the illegal alien drug dealing muslims. Just shutting off the food stamp system at the beginning of the month would destroy most democrat controlled cities, after looking at what happened on 10-12-13 when the system went down for 8 hours in 16 states

  12. These people would be more than happy to ship the opposition off to reeducation camps.

    It’s getting really, really scary here.

    I seem to recall dissent being patriotic — oh, right, it’s okay when it against a REPUBLICAN, what was I thinking?

    I think Dean, Obama, et al should look up ‘consent of the governed,’ because they are pissing it away, and the results won’t be pretty.

  13. Maybe the Dems who put together a committee on their un-American activities…

    Hypocrites, the lot of them. They were never interested in civil liberties. The founders of the ACLU were huge fans of the Soviets’ totalitarianism, and are known to have written that civil liberties would be the Trojan horse that they used to bring communism and Soviet-style totalitarianism.

  14. Dean, of course, is all in favor of getting rid of the checks and balances provided by the Electoral College to assure that the states are not washed away in the tidal wave of national government mandates and regulations.

    Dean wants the popular vote to choose the President and he wants as corrupt a system of policing the process as possible.

    When he squawks about the Republicans winning by “taking away the right to vote” he is admitting that the DemonizingRats don’t want anything that smacks of checking up on whether the voters are legit.

    That, of course, is obvious to a moderately educated person. But Dean is demagoguing to the corrupt, the ignorant and the self-interested. How is that for being the basis of your party?

    “Give me your confused, your lazy,

    Your befuddled masses yearning to get stuff for free,

    The wretched refuse of our teeming Democrat programs.

    Send these, the homeless, ghetto-tost to me,

    I lift my middle finger beside the welfare state door!”

    (And, I will get you to the polls early and often with cigarettes and booze by the your side.)

  16. @ Juan: Like I said, the Leftists only care about civil rights so long as they can be used as weapons. Once the Leftists achieve their goals, civil rights get dropped.

  17. Heliotrope, I like your poem. One quibble: it would have to be mary-jane cigarettes.

    On the main topic, my family was here first, Mr. Dean, so YOU go away.

    But without the playground language, I have been wondering how a) That Man in the White House was going to find a way to stay in there beyond January 2017 and b) how the counter-Constitution and resulting tyranny were going to come. With current trends, it will be worse than the Civil War was in terms of region fighting region, and brother fighting brother.

  18. @ Kevin: I’ve thought for a long time that democracy is only truly possible on small scales. The bigger the country, the more power the central government needs to administer the country, and thus the less power individuals and regional governments have. And since democracy is necessarily a governmental form in which the people wield the most power, democracy is rendered impossible. Look at countries like Russia and China.

    The U.S. is one of the biggest countries in the world. The centralization needed to administer it goes against much of the citizenry’s instinct for self-rule. The government has decreed that secession is impossible, so the only recourse for people and regions who do not want to yield their power will be to hope that the central government has a change of heart, or to attempt to secede through force of arms. The former seems like a pipe dream, the latter looks too possible for comfort.

  19. Dean’s desperation and Debbie Blabbermouth Schulz’s ugga-bugga-yoyoing is clear evidence that the DemonizingRats are running flat out scared that their fundamental change of America is going to boomerang on them and hit them where it hurts.

  20. Can’t the Democrats ever think of something new? He’s beating the dead horse of voter ID. Why can’t they be honest and tell it like it is? We’ re opposed to voter ID because we want the illegal aliens, dead people, and the unscrupulous, to vote for us especially the unscrupulous who will vote multiple times.We’re strictly opposed to honest elections.

  21. Sean L., I can see examples where you’re right that democracy seems to work only in small countries–Switzerland for example, which has one of the more pure forms of democracy. The cultural cohesion may also be as, or more, important than just size.

    I think the Constitution as written–electoral college and especially the state legislatures electing the senators–came close to holding a balance of liberties and cohesion. Ever since the Constitution was amended to have the direct election of the Senators, a key part of the balance between states and the central/federal government was lost, and more massive pandering became possible. And with pandering largess came control.

    I’m working night shift this month. When I get up before getting ready for work, I’ll see if I can be clearer in what I mean.
