I don’t always agree with Alan Dershowitz, but he is a brilliant man. He’s also exactly right when he blasts liberal students over their protests at universities. They don’t want diversity. They want to be in control and rule over others. They want people silenced so they can’t speak up against what they want done. They want tyranny, not diversity. Free speech is only speech they are allowed to voice. They are the ultimate, elitist hypocrites. Dershowitz is a leading proponent of civil liberties and he also advised on the O.J. Simpson murder trial as a defense attorney. He’s been involved in multiple celebrity cases and he is commenting here on what he calls a dangerous trend of “tyrannical students” on college campuses. It’s spot on.
As college students nationwide garner national media attention for their protests against school administrations and perceived racial injustices on their campuses, famed Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz has a word for them: hypocrites.
In a no-holds-barred interview with Business Insider, Dershowitz argued that “the last thing these students want is diversity.”
“They may want superficial diversity, because for them diversity is a code word for ‘more of us,’” he said. “They don’t want more conservatives, they don’t want more white students, they don’t want more heterosexuals.”
Dershowitz went on to criticize Yale University student protesters in particular as “hypocritical,” especially as they spit on their peers who attended a free speech event at the William F. Buckley Jr. program several weeks ago.
“I think the most important thing to point out is the double standard and the hypocrisy,” Dershowitz said. “These are students who want safe spaces for themselves but not for others. They’re prepared to spit on people going out of lectures.”
Dershowitz, who is Jewish, also told Business Insider that the students who protest against these racial injustices on campus have been the same students who commit anti-Semitic acts against him. For example, the professor said that students shouted, “Zionists out of CUNY” when he spoke the City University of New York. While at Johns Hopkins University, he was met with pictures of himself defaced with the Hitler mustache.
“These students don’t want me to be safe,” he said. “They don’t want students who agree with me to be safe. They just want their ideas to be safe and protected from any contrary point of view.”
At a number of schools, including the University of Missouri and Yale University, students have protested racism on campus and called for the resignation of administration members who they say are creating a dangerous environment. And at Amherst College, students have threatened to respond in a “radical manner” if their demands are not met. Black Lives Matter students at Dartmouth marched through the library physically intimidating other students into saying #BlackLivesMatter and used vile epithets against them for being white. At a free-speech conference at Yale earlier this month, several attendees were spat on and called racist. One minority student who attended the conference said he was called a traitor. These students that are doing this are radicals encouraged by racists and communists. That’s not diversity… that’s hate.
