Dershowitz Compares Dems to Communists – He’s Only Half Right

Elder Patriot – Anyone who still doubts that America’s Democratic Party is anything other than a front for the Communist movement is in denial. 

Not a single Dem voted for lowering taxes on America’s workers.  In fact, they refused to even engage in talks about tax reform when Trump asked for their input.  While that can be dismissed as a political maneuver what they’re now attempting to do – along with some Republican turncoats – removes all doubts about who they are and what their intentions are.

The American left, aligned with and led by the mainstream Marxist media has embarked on a campaign to convince the populace that Donald Trump is mentally unfit for office and to then invoke a clause in the Twenty-Fifth Amendment that would allow Congress to vote to remove him.

Esteemed Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz discussed the Dems’ plan during a visit with Fox and Friends:

“Well it’s very dangerous, there’s only one thing worse than trying to criminalize political differences and that’s trying to psychiatrize them.”

“These psychiatrists now who are trying to diagnose without ever having met the man – that’s what they did in Russia. I represented dissidents who they locked up in mental hospitals, that’s what they did in China, that’s what they did in apartheid South Africa,” 

“How dare liberals, people on the left, try to undo democracy by accusing a president of being mentally ill without any basis!

“Look, the Twenty-Fifth Amendment doesn’t apply.  Everybody knew who Donald Trump was when they elected him… He hasn’t changed in office.

“This idea of diagnosing him instead of opposing him politically poses an enormous danger.”

Previously though, Dershowitz accused Republican investigators of conducting a political witch-hunt of their own against their political opponents and suggested they move on for essentially the same reasons.

But, there is a major difference and Dershowitz should recognize it.  The Democrats opposition to Trump wasn’t limited to opposing ideologies.  They perverted and corrupted virtually every lever of government that could assist them in destroying Donald Trump both before and since his election.

What Obama did with the IRS and the DOJ were unthinkable violations of the public trust.  The same was true of Hillary’s bartering of American assets and State Department approvals to the highest bidders without regard to national security.

Worse, much worse, was the conspiracy they conducted to undermine our electoral process using every conceivable strategy from fomenting violence, to voter fraud, to election fraud, to using their powers to illegally spy on an opponents political campaign, to knowingly and deliberately using a phony “dossier” to destroy a political opponent even after he had been elected.

But it’s even worse than that.  This was no small, limited perversion of government.  These “by whatever means necessary” Marxists have been placed everywhere inside of virtually every government agency and the courts. 

These operatives, who committed serious crimes with full knowledge that what they were doing was illegal, have not, and have proven they will not, change their spots.  They must all be rooted out. 

This is hardly the first time in human history that a political party sought to exercise powers that they were neither given by the people or their constitution.

“The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored, because it cannot survive their being repeated. 


“The common sense of mankind demands that law shall not stop with the punishment of petty crimes by little people. It must also reach men who possess themselves of great power and make deliberate and concerted use of it to set in motion evils…”

That is an excerpt from the opening statement at the Nuremberg Trials.  I’m fairly certain Dershowitz would recognize it.

The idea that the men and women who perpetrated these crimes, or stood silently by while they watched others commit them, can now have their sins washed away under the premise that it was only politics is unacceptable.

They must never be allowed to darken our political landscape again.  Not just as politicians or appointees, but as influence peddlers for K street lobbyists or inside America’s corporations.   

Alan Dershowitz knows better.

Never again.
