Dershowitz is more of a classical liberal. He at least has some interity and intellectual honesty.
I’m an attorney, and Dershowitz used to drive me nuts. Couldn’t stand the guy. But more and more I find myself in agreement with him. Time has mellowed at least one of us.
It’s been fun to watch Dersch becoming more conservative.
Dershowitz is also, first and foremost, a defense attorney. He understands the rights of the accused, and recognizes when those rights are being trampled on (though, in this case, one need not be an attorney to see the blatant railroading).
Dershowitz is most certainly not a classical liberal in the since of favoring freedom. Dershowitz is a consistent liberal in the late 20th early 21st century meaning of the term liberal.
He merely has not let politics and race dominate everything in his world view.
