Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz hit Fox News on Sunday to break the culture of abandonment, underscored by threats against former President Donald Trump’s defender Michael Van Der Veen.
Dershowitz compares abandonment culture with McCarthyism
Dershowitz compared the current situation to McCarthyism in the 20th century and also planned to combat it with all he has.
“Breaking culture off is fast becoming American culture,” he said. “You know, Common Cause, which pretends to be a liberal and not a radical organization, has now demanded that Facebook keep Donald Trump off its platform.”
“We get Liberals, Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, and we say Fox should be taken off cable. It’s a call for censorship, ”he continued.
“I grew up under McCarthyism,” added Dershowitz. “I hated communism. But I defended the lawyers’ right to defend accused communists. And I defend every lawyer today. “
“And if any lawyer is the subject of this type of McCarthyism, I’ll represent you pro bono,” he said. “I’ll represent you in front of universities and bar associations. I will work to ensure that the new McCarthyism of the hard left does not become American culture. “

“The day we had the impeachment vote on the floor of the house, I told my Democratic counterparts I said the demolition culture wasn’t just going to end with Republicans. It will come to all of us in the end, ”he said. “And that’s why we all have to push back.”
“If we don’t push this back and stop and stand up like Mr Dershowitz said, stand up for the Constitution and the First Amendment, it will only get worse,” added Jordan. “This is the main problem the country has to deal with today.”

On Saturday, the Senate voted to acquit Trump after the Democrats charged him with allegedly inciting the riot in the Capitol last month.
Had they succeeded in indicting him, Trump would not have been allowed to run for office in the future. The acquittal means that Trump can run for president again from this point in time in 2024.
