Alan Dershowitz, an acclaimed Harvard University constitutional law professor, unloaded on college students who are protesting their right to a ‘safe space’ on campuses such as Ithaca College and Mizzou, while simultaneously denouncing the concept of a first amendment right to free speech.
Appearing on The Kelly File, Dershowitz relayed a story of a speaking engagement at Johns Hopkins University, where students painted a Hitler mustache on his posters. He is a Jewish lawyer.
He reminded viewers that “It was the students at universities that first started burning books.”
“They don’t want to hear diverse views on college campuses,” Dershowitz said, adding “It’s the worst kind of hypocrisy!”
That’s when the law professor known as the “most distinguished defenders of individual rights” really let loose on these college students, calling them hypocrites, bigots, and fascists.

He said it’s “the worst kind of hypocrisy” that these students want complete freedom over their personal lives, but they want the school and administrators to protect them from ideas with which they disagree.
He revealed that when he recently spoke at Johns Hopkins University, students painted a Hitler mustache on his posters.
“No concern about that. It’s an absolute double standard. It is ‘free speech for me but not for thee,’ and universities should not tolerate this kind of hypocrisy,” Dershowitz said.
“You have to call these things what they are: double standard, hypocrisy, bigotry, McCarthyism. And the fog of fascism is descending quickly over many American universities. We have to fight back against these students.”
Comment: Are we witnessing the start of fascism, McCarthyism, and book burning on college campuses today? How do we fight back against this kind of hypocrisy and ignorance in the education system?
