Thursday on MSNBC’s The Beat, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said that the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for large private companies is a threat to America because millions will die.
“The disturbing thing about this, of course, is in their right-wing ideological zealotry, they have substituted their judgment for public health judgment, which they’re totally unqualified to do,” Dean claimed about the Supreme Court justices. “They did the same in the abortion case in Mississippi, where they look like they are headed that way, where they substitute their judgment for the judgment of doctors and patients. This is an ideologically-motivated court.”
Democrats have no problem with an ideologically-motivated court, unless it’s the wrong ideology.
He continued, “This situation is going to kill probably more Americans than died certainly in World War II. Maybe even, if we keep going at this pace, kill more Americans than died in the Civil War, which is the war that did more damage to this country than any other. The court is not helpful. They’re not using common sense.”
This is typical fear-mongering from the perpetually-unhinged Dean. Pandemic mandates have done nothing to stem the spread of COVID-19. More patients are dying of it in areas where lockdowns are more draconian and where strict vaccine mandates are in place, than in areas more committed to liberty and choice.
Dean added, “The Mississippi decision, the voting rights decision, the Citizens United where corporations are now people and can put as much money as they want into political stuff and in many cases not be found out, the court is a threat to the United States of America. This is actually a threat to individual lives. There will be a great many of them, in seven figures, as a result of this.”
Translation: the Supreme Court is a mass-murdering threat to America when it doesn’t vote the way radicals like Dean want it to.

In December 2012, Dean appeared on MSNBC and said the following about Republicans:
“The fact of the matter is you cannot peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God’s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped. You can’t — if that’s what you believe, if that’s what conservative principles are, you might as well go someplace else because this country has not bought it anymore. We’re done. The argument is over and these guys are going to have to change their philosophy, not just their ground game …They can win if they change themselves. They have to stop beating up on gays, stop beating up on immigrants, stop beating up on Muslims, and understand what America is really about. And it is really about opportunity. And the young people, who I think voted 65% for Obama, they would vote Republican if it was just on fiscal grounds. But they’re not going to vote Republican when Republicans are preaching hate with the people they grew up and who are their friends. That’s just not going to happen.”
