Former Vermont governor and one-time aspirant to the presidency Howard Dean has long been a fan-favorite of the far Left for his efforts to push the Democratic Party ever further toward socialism.

He even spent several unproductive years as the DNC chairman, where his job was, ostensibly, to grow the party. Apparently, he no longer cares about expanding the tent to include new voices. In fact, it sounds as if Dean would actually prefer expunging a certain kind of American from the the Democratic Party ranks.

In his mind, there is simply no room for pro-life Americans among the Donks. While appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Dean was asked by host Joe Scarborough if the Democrats would begin to look for ways to reach out to Americans who are economic liberals but social conservatives, something the party used to do.

Dean answered with an emphatic “No,” which he went on to defend:

[T]he young generation isn’t that way. I think the old “left right” is an anachronism…. Young people don’t think that way. They are not ideological. They are extremely interested in social justice, so we are never going back to maybe making compromises on abortion, and gay rights is another one.

Shorter Dean: If you’re not 100% ideologically pure, dyed-in-the-wool-blue “progressive,” today’s Democratic Party wants nothing to do with you.

You can verify this for yourself by visiting any college campus and announcing that you are a liberal who believes in free speech, even when it’s offensive. You’ll be cast out so fast, it will make your head spin. If you don’t toe the party line – they don’t want you.

Howard Dean is just the latest liberal to tell you to “get out.”
