FLASHBACK: Howard Dean: ‘The Candidate for Guys with Confederate Flags

Now he says if you vote Republican you’re automatically racist.

Back in 2004, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean wanted to be president. In fact, he wanted to be the candidate for “guys with Confederate flags on their pickup trucks.” He probably didn’t want that little factoid to come back around, but here we are.

The video above shows a Democratic candidates debate forum that aired on CNN and was moderated by Anderson Cooper. Dean was chastized by other candidates, including Al Sharpton and John Edwards, over his pledge to white, southern voters.

With all the leftists in the country wanting to remove all Confederate symbolism from the country, it seemed appropriate to remind everyone of this because of Dean’s more recent political statement, uttered on MSNBC over the weekend:

“I think this may be the moment for Trump last weekend. Today, in the 2018 elections, if you vote for a Republican, you're supporting Donald Trump. This has now become a referendum. If you want to vote for a racist in the White House, then you better vote for Republicans. But if you want to vote for Democrats and really have change, that's where I think America is going."

Townhall has that video:
