Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean at a rally in Colorado last week railed against the Republican Party, saying that it’s members are “not American” and that they would be “more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia.”

“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,” Dean said in an address that only recently attracted the attention of many news sites.

“They are not American,” he added. “They could be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia but stay away from our country. This is based on the right to vote.”

The former Democratic National Committee spoke at a rally in support of Colorado 6th Congressional District candidate Andrew Romanoff, a Democrat, the Daily Caller reported.

Dean addressed the crowd for approximately 12 minutes.

“We have had enough of the politics of anger. We have had enough of the politics of hate. We have had enough of the politics of division,” he said, according to the Colorado Stateman.
