The good Professor, a true titan at the Harvard Law School, has come under a lot of criticism in recent years from liberals. One of the most prominent statements he has made in the last several years that drew their ire was his statement that Ted Cruz was one of the most gifted law students he ever had at Harvard. The howls went up as if they wanted to tar and feather the man, yet he held his ground with truth. And whether you love or hate Ted Cruz, a man who seems to get responses from both viewpoint, a look at his record reveals he has a brilliant mind when it comes to the law and Dershowitz was merely recognizing that. After all, he taught him in his rigorous classes and watched him shine. Cruz clearly has an amazing gift for debate.
But now Professor Dershowitz has upset liberals to the point of them nearly becoming unhinged. Why? Because he defends Donald Trump's right to fair treatment under the law. He didn't vote for Trump, quite the contrary, but he sees the madness surrounding the Left's treatment of the man as a major threat to our concept of civil liberties. And he cites the current investigation, including the work of Robert Mueller as being potentially dangerous to our continued existence under the rule of law.
I wouldn't dare to try and explain this eloquent man's views for you for I would do great disservice to them, so instead I would ask that you read an article that was penned by Professor Dershowitz for the Gatestone Institute and was published in ZeroHedge.com this morning. I think it is an excellent read whether you be liberal, conservative or anything in between. It is powerful and the link follows. Just cut and past it on your browser.
Be careful when you want to take away someone's civil liberties. Someone else might come after yours next.
