Alan Dershowitz THREATENS the Democrat Party

Alan Dershowitz has come out swinging at the Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee. The front-runner for party chair is Keith Ellison. Because of Mr. Ellison’s known support for the Nation of Islam, Mr. Dershowitz will no longer be a life-long Democrat. He promises that many people of Jewish origin will depart the party with him. Makes sense to me.

As Written By Kyle Feldscher for the Washington Examiner:

Famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz said Friday he would rather leave the Democratic Party than be a member under Rep. Keith Ellison, the front-runner to lead the Democratic National Committee.

Speaking on Fox Business, Dershowitz said there is a divide in the Democratic Party over Jewish issues, particularly the support of Israel, or lack thereof, offered by the Obama administration.

Dershowitz said Ellison’s past praise of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is enough to make him and other Jews leave the party.

“It does, and if they now appoint Keith Ellison, who worked with Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC you’re going to see a lot of people leave” Dershowitz said. “I’m going to tell you right here on this show and this is news, if they appoint Keith Ellison to be chairman of the Democratic Party, I will resign my membership to the Democratic Party after 50 years of being a loyal Democrat.” …….

    Good for him. They slapped Jewish identity in blatant aggression – why stay after that. Insanity. Sad, but times have changed. There is a foreign influence going on here that is #dangerous. #America should sanction this party who will not stop at anything to #disrupt this nation, #incite #RIOTs, and seek to overthrow fair elections to enforce their will on the citizenry. No Party can DEMAND that this nation accept their rule. This is NOT a dictatorship. They are not entitled, nor are they accepted by the masses! Horrible things have been attempted leaving #Americans and the world appalled. Its #Orwellian, #dangerous, #seditious, and UNACCEPTABLE.

    • Tom Cook

      When Trump reverses the Israel thing, will the jewish democrats switch parties?

      • Sheila Cloudcroft

        good question. I suspect a more moderate party will emerge which will capture the disenfranchised, or within the Dems a revolt will occur. not sure they’ll have an easy time unsticking the hyper-radicalized leadership who has emerged. not with all the “PC” that will fly when they try. question is, why do we have to have elections preferentially biased to 2 parties. no advantages should exist which narrow the viable field of options to 2. eliminate all donations, give equal air time and press. provide 100% unbiased spreads for all candidates. once a candidate is vetted with enough voter support to declare, the narrowing process should be irrespective of “Party” at all. just that person, their positions, and public choice between them. It should be consecutively an elimination by phases, until the best of a handful wins by state, then total electoral college votes.

    ALAN–SOME OF US KNEW ALL ALONG!!!!

    • Ed Wade

      Don’t be fooled, he did too.

  • Brian S

    So why didn’t he leave while Obama was filling his cabinet with muslims, refusing to have Netanyahu visit the Whitehouse while inviting the MB numerous times? It’s not like he shouldn’t have known what was going on.

    • Will M. Buckley

      You are making an excellent point. I can only say that it’s a lot like abandoning the sports team you grew up rooting for even if you moved away years ago. Sometimes it takes a trigger or catastrophic event to force change even when it is obviously in your best interest.

      • Brian S

        Hard to say but he’s been a part of it for so long, it’s hard to think he didn’t know what’s been going on. For the ones paying attention, the writing hasn’t just been on the wall, it’s been a flashing Times Square billboard. Farrakhan has been a hero of the left for a very long time. When Obama openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood in overthrowing Egypt and invites them here, it should have been pretty plain. Where was he when they were condemning Republicans for inviting Netanyahu to speak when Barry wouldn’t even talk to him? Seems more like a plan to make it look like the Democratic party is actually changing their views. I hope you’re right, but that’s a tough pill to swallow without knowing all the side effects. The DNC hack showed everyone that they aren’t below that kind of tactic.

    • Beckah

      I’ve wondered that myself, in addition to wondering why so much of the Jewish population supports the (D) to begin with!

      • Tom Cook

        I have often wondered the same thing about blacks. What have the democrats ever really done for them? Yet they support them.

      • Bob

        I asked a Jewish friend of mine, that “in view of the holocaust, why are Jewish folks so strongly ANTI firearms ownership?”
        All I got was a ‘deer in the headlights look’.
        Same with this Dershowitz dude….. if you know that Ellison is a muslim and wants to KILL Jews (and everyone else), why would you STILL vote for that party??

      • mike r

        Religion, Republicans are too religious for the Jews

    • ThereAintNoJustice

      Maybe Dershowitz HOPED Obama would CHANGE. ūüėČ

      • Myrtle Linder

        Obama change??? B. S.

    • Tom Cook

      Maybe he did not recognize the extent of Obama’s hatred for Israel.

  • Emanon65

    Good for Dershowitz. Come on over to our side. But when we examine American history, there is no surprises. It has always been the party of Abraham Lincoln who were the supporters of the Jews, who abolished slavery, who started the civil rights movement, certainly not the southern democrats. This is nothing new under the sun.
    Rev. Martin Luther King has always been a staunch republican. It’s the revisionist Marxist movement that changed the story. We simply didn’t wear our views on our sleeves. We were never known to be communicators like the democrats. But they embellished with lies.

    • DrSique

      “But they embellished with lies.” Yes they do and I have often wondered when the anti-oppression hippie movement of the 1960s, which was largely libertarian in ideology, became the big government leftist movement of today who are the very oppressors they used to despise. Then I had an epiphany. It was when commie/conmen, like Saul Alinsky, decided to use them as “useful idiots” and steer them to where they are today. All that he, and others like him, had to do was convince all of those lost, drug addled souls that they would live in a utopia if they only did what he taught them. It is a destructive ideology begun by evil people and, now, it has taken on a life of it’s own. Lucifer is undoubtedly laughing his ass off.

      • The_Old_Hippie

        It was NOT the “hippies” that were responsible for the rioting in Chicago during the Democratic convention, nor was it the “hippies” that went in for the bombing of government offices or taking over of government buildings. If you really knew many hippies from that time, you would know that it was not in their beliefs to use violence to overcome the beginnings of the oppression that is gaining strength today.

        Seems that people remember the hippies since there was so many and the news media (surprise, surprise) used them to as a learning tool to find out how much they could fool the American public. Not too many people remember the Yippies who actually were the ones who were responsible for the violence of the day

        • DrSique

          Maybe you should take a moment to reread my post. I openly stated that the origins of the hippie movement were based on anti-oppression by “the man”(big government). It would have been the hardcore radicals like Alinsky and Bill Ayres(some guy who Obama knew from the neighborhood and is responsible for bombings) who led them astray. The hippie ideology of live and let live has been twisted and a lot of those who worked against big government were convinced to use it as a weapon, therefore becoming the very oppressors who they worked so hard against. Clearly you aren’t one of them.

          • The_Old_Hippie

            Thank you. I’ll agree that there were some who were misled. However, most of those involved in the “hippie” movement were more inspired to show the real stories behind what the news media was presenting. Not much different from now. I worked on an “alternative” newspaper in the 70’s and you wouldn’t believe the times we got service calls from telephone personnel or other utility operations most of them before we ever had any problems.

        • DCW left coast

          The entire Anti-war movement was inspired and funded by the Soviets back in the day. The youth were Lenin’s “Useful Idiots” . . . now they are in Obama’s Exec Branch.
          What happened to the Party of JFK? Today the party of Marx . . .

          • Tom Cook

            I disagree, I was a hippie in the 60s. Now I am a retired conservative. Us old hippies from the 60s are mostly retired, do the math. Also some of us realized that stuff that the liberals were doing was stupid, counterproductive, nonsense.

          • DCW left coast

            It is now a fact of history . . . that the Soviets funded anti-war movements around the free world. The evidence was gathered in the early 90s when the files were exposed to daylight after the Soviet collapse.

            Were ALL hippies involved? Of course not . . . I had friends that used to dress up as hippies in the late 60s just to go and poke the hippie chicks.
            When the hippies were gathered in my area in 67 and onward . . . I was driving my Mustang GT around the town laughing at them. It was Silver Blue with a White interior . . . wish I still had it today.
            The entire movement in the 60s was misguided . . . and led to the insanity of the 70s . . . and of course is the reason the Dhimmicrap party today is the party of Marx.
            These same “Hippies” are the Professors at our Universities teaching our children and grand-children abject nonsense.

            I think it was Churchill who said “if you are not a social warrior in your youth you have no heart, but if you are not a Conservative by your late 30s . . . you have no Brain” . . .

          • Tom Cook

            I have a feeling that most of the youth today will not progress to the conservative side. As a matter of fact, I live in a retirement apartment building, with a residency of about 200. I as a republican am in the minority here. My favorite car was my 69 camaro.

          • DCW left coast

            I hope that public education will be overhauled in the next few years . . . bringing back critical thinking skills, math, language skills and history. This would go a long way to giving youth a chance to compete in the real world.
            Those that don’t want to be informed and get a real education . . . will likely contribute to more of what we see in inner cities today . . . and help fill the prisons.
            Had a buddy with a 69 Camaro back in the day . . . like a lot of old iron a nice one sure gets good money today. All the Best for 2017 !

      • Beckah

        You are correct, Alinsky used them as “useful idiots”, and now the entire party has been overrun by them; if you’re not HARD LEFT, you don’t get to stay!

    • Beckah

      The (D) is also “putting the machine into overdrive” to try and “erase” all ties to the history that IS the Demonrat party (removal of the Confederate Flag, for one)! Lucky for them, they control “education”, or this country wouldn’t need a campaign slogan like “Make America Great Again”!

    • Tom Cook

      Do not forget also, it was the democrats that formed he KKK, after they lost the civil war.

      • Emanon65

        Absolutely, correct. I suggest to all those who are not familiar with the real American history to watch Dinesh D’Souza’s newest documentary “Hillary’s America” It’s a great synopsis of the democrat party and how they stole America.

  • DrSique

    Buy, but, but……left wing pundit Richard Fowler, who looks like Erkel and speaks like Richard Simmons, says that “the right has a total disconnect from the Jewish Community.” Not many Jews are ignorant of their ancestors fate under the nazi regime. It isn’t any different under islam. Perhaps it is Fowler, a secular black far left moron, who has a disconnect from most Americans.

    • ThereAintNoJustice

      From what I have seen and even conversed with Jewish friends, they are Democrats because of right v left. The Nazis are called rightwing because Hitler was anticommunist and the communists were leftwing.

      • Beckah

        A few tell me it’s because of the more “liberal” immigration policies of the Leftists. I’m sure what you have been told is VERY accurate!

      • DrSique

        True, however, the reason that leftists attempt to make the nazis out to be right wingers is because they don’t want to own them as the socialists that they were, hardly a conservative tenet. The reason that the socialists and the communists were at each others throats was purely a power struggle. They both set about killing millions of human beings and controlling their respective societies. IMHO, that makes them ideological brethren.

        • ThereAintNoJustice

          Kind of the point I was trying to make. Jews were the victims of both Hitler and Stalin…. only the communists were a bit more subtle (or maybe devious) than the Nazis. Either way, and this is pure semantics and conjecture, the Jews grew to distrust the politically Right.

          Oh, as to your comparison of Nazis to the Islamic nations, during WWII many, if not most, of the Islamic nations had allied themselves with Germany.

  • Ed Wade

    How much for around the world Rebecca? Skank.

  • Laxmom2

    Maybe Jews will finally wake up and realize that democrats are not friends of Israel. obama stabbed them in the back.

    • ThereAintNoJustice

      I have known a lot of Americans that are Jewish and they are/were not friends of Israel either. They informed me that they considered Israel a Zionist nation and they were Orthodox or reformed. Sort of like Baptists and Catholics have been (with some still thinking that way.), though both are Christian.

      My hope is that these Americans realize that bigots like Ellison and Farrakhan, along with other black leaders like Sharpton and Obama and the blockheads at the UN, are Antisemitics and do not differentiate any Jew from Israelis.

      • Deborah Horvath Rowden

        There is a huge difference between a biblical, tribe of Judah Jew (little Judah) and Zionism. Zionism is fairly new and a political affiliation. Let’s not forget that Jesus Himself said that their are those who say they are Jews, but are of the synagogue of Satan. God still has 12 tribes and two Houses that He will unite once again. Jews of the tribe of Judah are just one of the 12.

        • Myrtle Linder

          The Jews like everyone else will stand before GOD and JESUS CHRIST, one at a time and be judged, by the fruit he/she bears or his/her lack of fruits!

  • Webb

    Its wake up time for the Jewish people…
    Progressives are not your friends…Politically speaking!

  • hal8196

    He supports the destruction of the US, but defends Israel. Patriots have been trying to do both for many years…..welcome to the party….

  • MeMe

    If Ellison is appointed as the chairman of the Democrat party, I can’t see this party surviving. Seriously, what is wrong with them? It’s like social issues is the all important agenda. They are infected with Mad hatters disease.

    • Tom Cook

      Soros has deep pockets.

  • RoscoeBonifitucci

    It has long been a mystery why American Jews have supported the Socialist Anti-Semitic Pro-Moslem Democrats? The Dems have crapped on Jews almost as long as they have been crapping on American Blacks and Hispanics. The only reason that one can fathom this Jewish Democrat Support is out of deep seated sense of White Guilt Privilege and anti-America Self-loathing.

    It is long overdue for Jews to realize their BEST Friend and Ally is the Conservative Christian. After all, We Patriot Christians realize we are nothing more than Jews who believe the Messiah came 2,000 years ago. We stand with Israel and support ALL things Judeo Christian as we believe in God, Family and Country and reject the Evil Madness of the Sharia Law Dogs of War.

    Liberalism is indeed a Mental Disease. The cure is Patriot Conservatism. Time for American Jews to buy a clue and get on the America First Train.

    • Tom Cook

      Roscoe, the democrats are very good at convincing people that right is wrong, and wrong is right. We as christians try to play by the rules. Problem is, they made the rules, and constantly try to change the rules in the middle of a situation. IE disregard the Electoral College. The rank and file democrat has no idea just how bad the democratic party leadership really is. Maybe, in the months to come we will be able to help educate them.

  • GoldenGirl2u

    So if they still back them, what is the point? I’d say that is typical Democrat speak. Crazy

  • DCW left coast

    Allan . . . my only question is “What took you sooooo long to wake up”?

  • dhd123

    The Democratic party has been turned over to morons, the Obama way of doing things is to do what you are not constitutionally allowed to do and ignore the opposing party. Ignoring the opposing party works great when you have a super majority, Pelosi said it best, “We won, we can do what we want”.

  • Tom Cook

    Wouldn’t it be nice to watch the democratic party implode?

    • Emanon65

      I doubt they will ever implode. They are too diabolical and they reinvent themselves. Whenever, they lose popularity, they reinvent themselves and call the party something else. But try as they may they are still the old Marxist movement. They are chameleons.
      They are viruses and go dormant for a while and when they find a new host they reappear.as a stronger mutation..
      Just think how much more dangerous this party has become since the days of Woodrow Wilson’s progressive party.
