Attorney Alan Dershowitz on Monday struck back at Robert Redford and other liberals for their seeming devotion to violent, homegrown activists.
Appearing on NewsmaxTV's Steve Malzberg Show, Dershowitz said, "I don’t understand the way some people on the Left glorify American terrorists" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Dershowitz: 'I Dont Understand the Way Some People on the Left Glorify American Terrorists'
STEVE MALZBERG, HOST: Robert Redford before this bombing was on Good Morning America, and he made a movie about the Weather Underground, and he was specifically asked by George Stephanopoulos, “You were followers of them. You kind of rooted for them?” He said, “I don’t know if I wanted a revolution, but I did admire them.” And Stephanopoulos said, “What about the violence?” And he said, “Sometimes you have to have violence.” And you got William Ayers who’s glorified. So, I mean, there’s a big hypocrisy in this country too.
ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Oh, it’s more than hypocrisy. Look at Kathy Boudin is now teaching at Columbia. And Angela Davis has had a distinguished career teaching. Ayers and his wife. These are all people who were terrorists.
MALZBERG: Would you agree no difference between them and this kid [Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev]?
DERSHOWITZ: They’re much worse because they’re much better educated and had all the privileges in the world. So I see them as much, much worse. And I don’t understand the way some people on the Left glorify American terrorists without realizing that, you know, it’s indistinguishable morally from the kinds of terrorism we’re condemning here. And I just don’t buy it.
For the record, Redford appeared on Good Morning America April 2 wherein host George Stephanopoulos so gushed over the actor's new film, "The Company You Keep," about a former Weather Underground activist that Redford said, "You ought to get on the marketing team!"
For conservative opinion about the film from Michelle Malkin and Christian Toto, please go here and here respectively.
Dershowitz has become an undercover conservative.
I may have to take the sh@t out of Dipsh@towitz
Dershowitz voted for Obama twice. He’s just messing with his liberal friends giving them a little lecture. But if Obama or Moochelle run in 2016 he will vote for them again
What a wrinkled old douche bag Redford has become.
I think conservatism came to him.
Jews were overwhelmingly the intellectuals, organizers and leaders of the 1960’s Radical movements and Dershowitz was one of them.
Radicals since the early 1980’s, the Left have embraced the pro radical Palestinian and Islamic perspective and have also embraced Anti Semitism.
The funniest thing I ever saw was the (fake) Rabbi Michael Lerner, that total POS and Bill and Hillary Clinton guru, get removed from the Podium at Berkley by jeer and death threats from what he though were his allies on the Left.
Seems he was living in the past and had not realized that the Vanguards of the Revolution had moved on and he was now an Enemy of the people in their eyes.
It was remarkable to hear him protest that he was a fellow revolutionary on their side on their side and never missed an opportunity to support an enemy of the US or undermine the US in any way he could on their behalf.
Did not matter.
He is a Jew.
Therefore, in their eyes, he must die.
These ain’t your typical 60’s Radicals we are dealing with these days.
Of course, he's just like they are, except where their affection for muslim terrorism is concerned.
Weather underground were cowards, one and all. No different from the Chechens. I’d spit in their faces back in the day and do the same now even though I’m 61 and should be more reserved.
The reason why the left loves the Muslims so much and identify with them is simple, the left despises America just as much as the Muslims do
Every time I’ve gotten a chance, I’ve complained about Redford’s movie and motive.
Dershowitz: Not Mirandizing Tsarnaev, feds might’ve blown death penalty; Update: Tsarnaev Mirandized

Do these news networks have no sense of shame or even IRONY?
Hell, where is Redford on this? I'd think that even HE would delay release of such a stinkbomb of a film.
It would have sunk anyway. Now WHO would see this? Not even Bill Ayres would rush out to watch it.
Robert Redford of the Sundance Film Festival, that included in their screening “Zoo”, a heartwarming story about the love between a man and a HORSE.
(gay marriage...you ain’t seen nothing, yet.)
Because both groups are down with the jihad/struggle!
The reason why the left loves the Muslims so much and identify with them is simple, the left despises America just as much as the Muslims do.
can not be emphasized enough or repeated enough.
the reason the left loves the muslims so much and identify with them is simple, the left despises america just as much as the muslims do.
Thank you for stating the obvious.
Surprising isn’t it, considering how much money they have amassed in AMERICA under their First Amendment right. I would like one of them to tell me in which other country; that is or has been ruled by one of the dictatorial murderers they so admire, where they could have done so well, particularly an islamic country. Perhaps they should go to one of them and give it a try, if they are not afraid of getting their heads sawed off with a dull knife.
“The reason why the left loves the Muslims so much and identify with them is simple, the left despises America just as much as the Muslims do”
That’s my thesis as well - and the reason they both hate america is because they both hate America’s most fundamental value - personal freedom. So they have a common enemy.
Now, if they ever get to a point that they will succeed in defeating us with their alliance, at that point they will turn on each other, because their values are also incompatible. Who would win that battle is not a sure thing. Most people would probably bet on the Muslims because of their convictions and ruthlessness. But I wouldn’t sell the liberal/communists short on either one of those qualities. After all look at what Lenin and Stalin “accomplished” in those arenas.
I won’t buy any product that has Paul NEWMAN’s name on it. I’d starve first......
