Skip to comments.Alan Dershowitz slams Martha's Vineyard liberals for 'shunning' him over Trump defense

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said last week that his defense of President Donald Trumps constitutional rights led to him being shunned by his own friends at a high-end seasonal destination.
The famed lawyer lamented the efforts to eject him from his social life at Marthas Vineyard amid his outspoken criticism of Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation into the alleged collusion with Russia.
In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz, a frequent guest on Fox News, said that though hes politically a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in addition to contributing handsomely to her campaign, his defense of civil liberties that could benefit Trump is too much to swallow for his social circle.
But that is not good enough for some of my old friends on Marthas Vineyard. For them, it is enough that what I have said about the Constitution might help Trump. So they are shunning me and trying to ban me from their social life on Marthas Vineyard."
I never thought I would see McCarthyism come to Marthas Vineyard, but I have. I wonder if the professor who refuses to listen to anything I have to say also treats his students similarly, he continued. Would he listen to a student who actively supported Trump? What about one who simply supported his civil liberties?

Should I care? Voting for HRC....Dine with the sharks.
“Should I care? Voting for HRC....Dine with the sharks.”
Dershowitz has been very supportive of the President in the Mueller witch hunt. He can reach #WalkAways in ways few of his base can.
this is how they try to enforce progressivism. Via social pressure, stigma, peer pressure, shunning, groupthink, intimidation...etc.
The meek get silenced. And they appear to go along.
But sometimes, in the privacy of the ballot box, some of them rebel.
Like in November 2016.
That’s the danger of enforced conformity. The polls give them no warning.
I’m looking foward to November !
Hes seeing how vile these people are.
He is finally getting the idea that these people aren’t old style liberals but communists who would gladly throw him in the gulag if they could.
Yes he is. Probably time to rather unceremoniously dump his old friends, and find new ones.
Alan Dershowitz can do his July vacation on Nantucket with the conservatives, instead. Plus Ack is prettier than MV.
Liberals have overrun Marthas Vineyard. It used to be a great place to take your family. Now it’s infested with these arrogant, and smug elitists. And the summer rents have gone thru the roof. You could rent a home in Florida for a month for less than a studio in MV for a week.
The law professor he’s talking about is Laurence Tribe, who used to be respected until he went insane with all the MSNBC folks.
What happens when you leave the reservation.
As my Mother always said, some people are so smart, theyre stupid.
Welcome to reality Professor Deshowitz.
Dersh. I love that you support Trump. I hate you for listening to your penis rather than the law and having sex multiple times with a 16 year old. What a hypocrite. If you can get an orgasm from it, screw whats illegal and harmful to a young girl.
it’s their loss, Dershowitz.
Seriously, did Dershowitz really think he’d be welcome?
Alan, you’re an attorney. Didn’t you read the fine print of the Progressive Friendship Agreement?
