Skip to comments.Liberal Alan Dershowitz: The Hard Left is a Bigger Threat to America
Posted on 02/16/2018 2:52:56 PM PST by Beave Meister
Its always amusing to see which traditional liberals have been pushed too far by leftists. Not that this is the first time Alan Dershowitz has strayed (see Alan Dershowitz Throws Down on Idiots Who Blame Terrorism on Poverty and WATCH: Alan Dershowitz Face-Stomps Obama Over Anti-Israel Resolution). It is, however, the most blunt hes been about it.
Im not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because theyre our past. They have no resonance on university campuses today.
But the hard, hard left? Anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, intolerance for speech. Its the future. These are our leaders.
In 50 years of teaching at Harvard, Stanford, NYU, Hebrew University, you name it, I have never met a group of less courageous people in my whole life than tenured Harvard and tenured other professors. They are so terrified of their own shadow. They dont want to do anything that upsets a student.
Clips like this are why Im most interested in seeing Pragers No Safe Spaces. Free speech has a habit of being framed as conservatives vs hyper sensitive liberals. But a lot of the people have been interviewed for the movie arent exactly people youll be seeing at CPAC.

Now THAT is an about face for Dershowitz. That is a profound statement of rebellion by a lifelong Lefty.
Maybe he’s more of a classic liberal. Leave to Liberals to even pervert that moniker.
It is. The only way I can figure it is Dersh sees himself as the arbiter of what liberalism is or should be, and thus it’s OK to condemn some extreme factions. Kinda like we do with McCain and Romney.
In general the Democrats are much more consistent in standing behind all progs and libs no matter what. The Bernie thing really ripped them to shreds.
Alan tries to be honest about things.
I respect him for this
So what took this so-called Harvard lawyer so long to figure this out? I knew about the leftist threat decades ago.
Yeah - what has happened to him? He is actually saying reasonable, logical stuff on some occasions.
The hard left? He means all Democrats, right?
1. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Jeb Bush
2. Dershowitz, Camille Paglia
3. Ted Cruz, Glenn Beck
Keep in mind the folks behind Door #2 are pro-abortionists ( a "right" that isn't explicitly in the Constitution) and Dershowitz is a rabid anti-gun abolitionist (and the 2nd Amendment is IN the Constitution).
I know you can't always get what you want: the Soviets were our allies in WWII and some vile creatures walked alongside (crashed the party of?) honorable Deplorables at Free Speech rallies last year.
But my point is that Dershowitz, while seeming to be on the MAGA train, won't likely support overturning Roe vs. Wade but wishes the Second Amendment had never come about. He could likely "go rouge" at any moment. I like him in theory but he should be treated with caution, IMHO.
Liberals are not hyper sensitive. Theyre want to shut down free speech. It is an orchestrated movement with a serious purpose.
Geez, it only took you till the age of 79 to figure out what I knew when I was 29.
Two possibilities, Professor. Either (1) I’m a hell of a lot smarter than you are, or (2) liberalism makes you stupid.
Could be both, I suppose.
Close race. Who is more dangerous to America and Americans? Muslims or liberals?
i may be becoming an olde curmugeon crank but
i would not want any of the people on your list (I don’t know who Paglia is so no comment on that one)
I respect Dershovitz for his honesty and intellectual brilliance, but would never put him on the court... for the reasons you state.
The others I have lost almost all respect for...I wish they’d get the H our of politics ASAP!
I hope he remembers what happened to Joe Lieberman for merely defending Israel.
He’s getting pushed out and into a corner. Watch for a black eye, just like Sanders got on the night of the DNC nominations.
Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson...
No, he can’t think for himself, he voted for Obama twice. If Obama wasn’t hard left ...
Don’t worry, Alan. I can vouch that these leftist fascist apes can’t fight for sh*t. If they leave their school hive and threaten normal Americans, they will die by the thousands.
When it comes to the phrase “Democratic Party,” Dershowitz has melted like jelly. He has found it impossible his entire life to extricate himself from a Democratic Party that has become an enemy of our democratic republic. He has to date voted for them no matter what. Talk is cheap and he’s a good talker. His thought processes are not logical when it comes to the phrase, “Democratic Party.”
For instance, he pretends now that he did know about BHO and Louis Farrakhan being close friends and political associates in Chicago. That’s BS. That fact was well known to anyone paying attention. He pretends he didn’t know and had no inkling that the Obama administration was deep in with and a pawn of the Muslim Brotherhood, and their allied groups. For forty years he steadfastly claimed again and again to whoever would listen that he is a “lifelong Democrat,” doing so even decades after such a pronouncement made any sense, in the face of the Democratic Party’s ever increasing racism and pro=terrorism and anti-Judaic-Christian society and supportive of the enemies of Israel.
Is there any reason beside Obama’s running under the Democratic Party name that Dershowitz voted for him? Was it because Obama had one time gotten a job as a failed part-time instructor for a law course and to Dersh that made him “a law professor” like himself?
A barrage of public pleas in recent months for him to finally start thinking for himself has led to Dershowitz tries at backtracking statements. I have almost no faith in the logic ability of anyone, in any walk of life or with any level of education, who would, not just once, but twice vote for Obama to become the POTUS. Spending a career at Harvard infected him with the contagion.
Let’s hope that Alan “Cognitive Dissonance” Dershowitz, law school graduate and articulate speaker, will yet truly think for himself, untethered from the magnetism of the sound, “Democratic Party,” and in doing so, connect the two sides of his brain.
Hes clinging to the common sense smart people on the right because he is very involved in the Epstein Pedo world. He didnt just defend him and get him a cushy light jail and long home confinement sentence. He took the gift of a 16 year old girl numerous times from Epstein. Virginia Roberts remembers having various kinds of sex with Dershowitz in different states and in the air.
People who knowingly have sex with minor sex slaves are not great constitutionalists. They arent great moral people. Maybe Prager gives him the benefit of the doubt but I believe Virginia. She was a very honest witness. She could have made up all kinds of things about President Clinton, having seen him on the island, but she only told what she saw, which was pretty much nothing. Dershowitz is dirty and he knows if you spout right of center, conservatives will protect you.
