Alan Dershowitz being shunned by his tolerant liberal friends
Alan Dershowitz being shunned by what used to be his tolerant liberal friends.

quote:

What has happened to Professor Dershowitz? Nothing, as far as he’s concerned, except that he’s espoused a novel theory that a president, in this case Trump, cannot be guilty of obstructing justice simply for firing the FBI director, even if one of his motives was to shut down an investigation.

As a result, Dershowitz told The Washington Post on Wednesday, he is being shunned by many of his old political allies. His motives are being questioned. And people who used to be his friends just don’t want to hear from him.

“None of my liberal friends invite me to dinner anymore,” he said. “Thanks to Donald Trump, I’ve lost seven pounds. I call it the Donald Trump diet,” he joked.

I’m torn on Dershowitz

He’s someone for whom I’ve always had a lot of respect

But he helped get O.J. off the hook for murder and I believe he knows he was guilty.

It really shows just how far off the rails the Democrats and main stream leftists have gone when this guy is now being called a right winger.

feel-good liberalism has taken over the democratic party

you'd think trump's election would snap them out of it, but they appear to be doubling-down

I get it, but that was his job. My feeling is that as long as OJ didn't outright confess to it, his lawyers just put their heads down and did what they were paid to do.

Can't blame Dershowitz for the LAPD and the DA being incompetent and trying to frame a guilty man.

Dershowitz wasn’t that involved with the O.J. defense team. He was hardly ever in court as he was teaching at Harvard at that time.

He's being shunned by them because them doesn't like facts, just accusations.

Dershowitz is the greatest lawyer ever. He was an invaluable asset to the defense.

Sounds like your "respect" is for him echoing your views more than his legal authority.

He helped to defend a client.

Blame Ito and Frick and Frack on the prosecution side.

So to review Leftist principles it is defending a double murderer/rapist/wife beater and getting him off: Acceptable; To be Pro-Free Speech: Unacceptable.

Liberals don't care about facts and the law...just what they want and do anything they can legally or illegally to make it happen and the end justify the means...

This has been going on for a while...they changed book definitions in the nineties to back law claims a decade later...

Slick fricks they are...

I bet OJ still like him. Maybe he should invite him over for a bottle of Manischewitz which would most likely match the blood on OJ's knife.

not at all, he is a democrat mo mo. that's probably confusing for you because you're a prog who doesn't understand that your beliefs are antithetical to liberal positions...for instance, hate speech laws or repealing the second amendment

in fact, dershowitz thinks it's an archaic law; however, he is 100% against repeal. he wants to make guns functionally illegal, but he's not willing to open Pandora's box to do it...but even that's not why I respect him

he's just brilliant.

re: Alan Dershowitz being shunned by his tolerant liberal friends
see progs and liberals have gone bat shite over trump. dershowitz (a Hillary supporter) has never been one to let personal feelings or politics influence his professional opinions.

for that, he's a right wing Nazi. progs hate him because he's a real liberal who isn't pretending that progressives have any common cause with liberals. they don't. they're hijacking the democratic party. the Russia stuff is complete nonsense and dershowitz pisses them off because he gives a professional opinion they don't like

even if trump colluded with Russia...that's not a crime. it drives them nuts because he's an expert and they're emotional cry babies. dershowitz had some online debate with shapiro, a Harvard law grad, and you could tell shapiro was staking out political opinions and then seeking to justify them legally whereas dershowitz has always been someone whose legal opinion and personal beliefs have never intersected.

He helped defend a client he knew was guilty who had a more than adequate defense team

I get that it’s about the judicial process and that’s something I can get but at the same time...he killed her and Dershowitz (like all of us) knows it

I like Jonathan Turley. He seems to be the most unbiased constitutional lawyer out there imo.
