“people have a right to give their two cents”
Bernie was asked about the Ann Coulter situation at Berkeley and he defended her. Amazing.

Sanders denounces threats against Ann Coulter
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) denounced the threats made against conservative pundit Ann Coulter that forced the University of California, Berkley, to postpone her appearance this week.
“I don’t like this. I don’t like it,” Sanders told The Huffington Post for a story published Saturday. “Obviously Ann Coulter’s outrageous ― to my mind, off the wall. But you know, people have a right to give their two cents-worth, give a speech, without fear of violence and intimidation.”
Coulter’s original talk at the university was postponed due to security concerns, with local police saying they had received “very specific intelligence regarding threats that could pose a grave danger to the speaker, attendees and those who may wish to lawfully protest the event.”
Sanders pushed back against protests that Coulter shouldn’t be allowed to speak, calling them “a sign of intellectual weakness.”

Well, he was a very unconvincing faux-Democrat, and will probably stay that way.
After this past week of head line news,it appears that key players in what goes for their leadership in their Democrat Party continue to have a messaging problem being that Howard Dean and Bernie Sanders are voicing a 180 from each other on what compromises the Constitutional premise of “Free Speech”. And this is the reformation tour across America to which is going to win them support for regional and state elections in 18 months!
