Over the last two years, I’ve written quite a bit about Alan Dershowitz and another liberal professor, Jonathan Turley.
Why? Because before the election of Donald Trump to the presidency these two men were the go-to legal scholars on the left for networks like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News.
Both Dershowitz and Turley are liberal Democrats, and both men have defended Hillary Clinton and other Democrats in the media in the past. However, both men are also intellectually honest and care (above all) about our legal system. That being the case, both men have run afoul of their liberal friends by pointing out the hypocrisy of the left’s attacks on Donald Trump. Both men have defended Trump from spurious legal attacks, and both men have spent hours pointing out that the Democrats were now doing the exact thing they complained about during the Obama and Clinton years.
For this devotion to truth and intellectual honesty both brilliant legal scholars have been shunned by the left.
It’s gotten so bad that Dershowitz was even recently threatened with a horrible death by a RICH, Elitist New York snob.
I don’t care about parties, I’m invited to too many. But at a party this week on Martha’s Vineyard a woman said, ‘If Dershowitz were here tonight I’d stab him through the heart.’
This is a Martha’s Vineyard woman saying she would stab me through the heart.
Another Martha’s Vineyarder, a professor at MIT, Professor Nicholas Negroponte, who has previously said he wished there were no New York Times and that people only the news that represented their own personal world view so they wouldn’t hear opposing points of view, the same guy who said soon there will be a pill you can swallow and you’ll learn French overnight so you won’t have to go through the process of learning French. He’s leading the campaign to try to get other people to shun me in every way and to not engage with me.
Now they are losing because the vast majority of people, even in Martha’s Vineyard and in Chilmark can’t stand people who try to stop speech and try to stop debate, so it’s backfiring…
I don’t think what you are describing is a liberal phenomenon. I’m a liberal. I think it’s a hard left radical phenomenon. I think liberals still support free speech. Liberals support due process but the Democratic party and the left has been taken over by radicals who have no interest in due process. They are like Negroponte. They only want their truth to prevail. They don’t want any dissent. They don’t want any argument.
It’s happening on university campuses. And when you have professors like Negroponte giving the students the lesson it’s okay not to engage, not to talk to people that you disagree with, it’s a terrible reflection of what is going on in the United States of America.
So put aside Martha’s Vineyard, put aside clam bakes and cocktail parties and put aside what ‘Morning Joe’ was saying. By the way, I challenge ‘Morning Joe’ to have me on the show when he mocks me so that I can respond. It’s easy and kind of unfair to attack somebody and then not give them the opportunity to respond. Let’s see if he has the guts to put me on the show so I can tell his viewers the truth.
Here’s Dershowitz on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show:
Speaking of MSNBC, here’s the segment where the leftists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe were mocking Dershowitz.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery
Where’s the liberal outrage?
In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…
Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse
This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.
The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
