Alan Dershowitz slams Media Matters as fascists, anti-Semitic bigots

Hannity opened his third hour today with this powerful statement from liberal Alan Dershowitz who he says he can’t be under the same tent with Media Matters, who he describes as fascists and anti-Semitic bigots, and he says he can’t vote for a candidate who has anything to do with Media Matters or Center for American Progress. Ouch!

    Nice to know that there are sensible liberals left…few and far between….hope he keeps his position at Harvard.

    • PFFV

      There are no sensible liberals, not one.

      • GetWhatYouPayFor

        There are men, however who regardless of their political belief will stand firm in the face of evil. There are times to put politics aside and stand against evil. Barrack Hussein is against everything America stands for. I am not a Jew either. Israel is the only good in that whole region of the world.

        • stage9

          Liberalism IS EVIL! Dershowitz is only recognizing what saner people already know.

        • warpmine

          Alan isn’t one of them. Trust me, as a Harvard Liberal, he believes he’s always right. Why? Simply because he’s at Harvard. If Jefferson or Madison were to come back to like I think they would have this mental midget shucking stalls rather than teaching a class.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Lol! True my friend… True.

  • 911Infidel

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and again.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Lol! Even a blind nut finds a squirrel now and then. 🙂

  • timeout31

    I hope he is outsed from Harvard. One liberal out is good for any university.

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    Give the guy credit. He has the guts to say what he believes and knows for fact. Barrack Obama is a Muslim radical sympathizer who hates Israel and our own Constitution that was based on Judea Christian values. He even mentioned Rev. Wright which makes it clear that this is outing Barrack Obama for exactly who he is. Nobody should slam the Professor over this one. Bravo to you Alan! I want Barrack out of my living room and the Oval Office.

    • warpmine

      Trust me, he voted for that schmuck iin the WH so I’ll give him the blame as I give all who voted that way. Destroyer of the USA.

      • tvlgds

        Gene Simmons, who is Jewish, also voted for Obama and now regrets it. He also voted for Bush.

        • warpmine

          Gene is a fine business man but he runs his family is just weird. Chiam wasn’t advocating fro the destruction of the US so he gets a pass from this Jew.

          • tvlgds

            Definitely a good businessman, and in spite of his lifestyle, I LOVE his kids! Gene is one of THE most patriotic Americans out there – his mother was in a concentration camp, so he really loves this country and what it stands for. He’s also very intelligent. Does a lot for the troops, too.

    • InsiderII

      My hope is that more liberal Jews come to thier senses as what appears is happening to Alan.

    • leel004

      Notice how respectful Obama is with Islam but with Christianity ?

  • Ouch, indeed. That’s gonna leave a mark.

  • PFFV

    A true liberal would never talk this way. He may be one of the very few that are waking up. Every once in a while even a liberal has to admit the truth right under their nose.

    • I think that there are quite a few who didn’t look deeply enough into what “democrat” meant and/ or that it ceased to mean what it used to mean for others. Some were blue dogs who just couldn’t take it anymore and had to leave. Maybe the liberal mindset was always this off the deep end or unfathomable or something. I don’t know.
      The good thing that has come out of 0 becoming president is that many, many people have had their eyes opened & are *thinking*. I wonder now if it was dominated by communists/ socialists all along.
      There are too many more that don’t have any idea. (not because they’re sucked in by dependency, either)
      God Willing, that will change before it’s too late.

      • tvlgds

        Evan Bayh was one of those blue dogs who couldn’t take it anymore.

        • Is he out? He was never one I thought much of (for some reason, he reminds me of John Edwards). Quite a few people have left the party (there are statistics somewhere about the number of people changing their registration and you can kinda see it real time on places like Kos). This is waaaay far away from our dad’s/ granddad’s democratic party. Reid & Pelosi are *not* popular (or weren’t for a while. DK now) and 0care split people real bad. Hillary did too. OWS looks like a big divider, but not many people speak against it (or walk on eggs) because they get blitzed if they do. :shrug: It opens eyes.

          • tvlgds

            yes. He didn’t run again in 2010 because he said he felt he could no longer represent the people. (or something to that effect) He was one of the least offensive democrats, IMHO.

  • kim

    Lines are being drawn and we are beginning to see people’s priorities and who they really are. Pressure has a way of showing our true character.

    • GetWhatYouPayFor

      I agree and I stand with Israel against the Muslims and Barrack Obama. No more American funded Arab Springs for me.

  • I’m glad that Dershowitz is calling these groups out, but he should have left the democratic party long ago as they have long been anti Israel.

    • A question…


      …can an honest and keen eyed and level headed Jew with Alan Dershowitz’s innate intelligence be SOOO RIGHT about the Jewish right to national life, national liberty and the pursuit of national happiness AND be SOOO WRONG about the progressivism of Woodrow “real politik” Wilson and the progressivism of Franklin D. “try to pack the Supreme Court” Roosevelt and the progressivism of the Democrat Party that has been successfully infiltrated by the true-believer marxists?

      I don’t know.


      • GetWhatYouPayFor

        It has to do with levels of evil. This is life and death for millions in Israel and Alan knows it. American Jews need a wake up call and he is providing it. Obama must go! We have plenty of time to fight American liberals but precious little time to defeat the not American Obama.

      • 12grace

        Very good question, a.

      • warpmine

        Alan sold his soul for notorietyand he got it and now he has to live with himself with hhis part iin destroying our country. Screw you Alan! At least David Horowitz had recognized this 35 years ago and did what he could to reverse the damage. Now there’s a ex-liberal/radical that say the light.

      • Good question Art. There are a lot of intelligent American Jews out there who are still blind to the DNC and liberal party. I got a good insite when I read Rabbi Lapin’s “America’s Real War” You ought to read it. It’s an older book, but excellent!

        • BankGuy

          The reason is that many Jews (multi-generational) are secularists and may go to Temple twice a year. A once very devout religios segment of America has turned its back on God. As a Christian, I believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people and their Holy Land needs to be protected by Jews and Christians from this onslaught of radical islamists.

          • I think there is an empathy factor as well. As long as people can be somehow convinced that they are supporting help (“help”) for people who are disadvantaged (quotes again), they will often default to that- even to the point of activism. Unless they get INto the workings- if their pod stays more superficial, they don’t see it as it really is (or even “unintended consequences”) Liberal extremists are *real* good at preying on people’s emotions and guilt. (guilt is a big vulnerability & Jewish people are so prone to guilt, they joke about it)

  • Nitnyline

    Good for you Alan.

  • Who you gonna call…

    … Soros buster Alan Dershowitz… awrightttt.

    Soros is the “Daddy Warbucks” of Center for American Progress and the puppet master of John Podesta.


  • Luker410

    How any Jewish person could side with this administration is completely beyond me.

  • 12grace

    Very Impressive, Mr. Dershowitz.

    It seems many Americans are waking up now. Bravo!

    • warpmine

      Trust me this guy still believes in liberalism in every sense of their movement, he’s still a progressive except now he’s rather upset that his pals aligned themselves with every form and color of Jew hatred.

      If you ask him about the constiution, he still believes it’s a living document. When he renounces all of progressive doctrine, I may refashion my opinion.

    • 12grace and warpmine…

      Right on… Right on… Right on…

      Something’s happenin’ here…

      David Horowitz is a lamplighter since writing “Radical Son” and time will tell us what Alan Dershowitz will title his “coming out” book describing his awakening from progressive darkness to the light of, no not “conservatism” but to FREEDOM.

      Buffalo Springfield – “For What It’s Worth” – Something’s happening here…


  • warpmine

    It’s to late Alan, you were and are in fact a useful idiot. They used you for one purpose to help destroy all things conservative and good in this country and you willingly went along with them on the premise that libedralism is more humane. Ef’in dumbass tool!

    I still consider myself Jewish and I apologize to all conservatives in America for these insanely mental midgets that call themselves Jewish and that includes this wipe and ones like Sen Leiberman.

    God will punish them for their part in the destruction of the Unied States and for Israel.

    • Bogdan51

      With a great sadness, I have to agree with you about Dershowitz being a useful idiot, warpmine. I was following very closely Dershowitz’s pro-Obama rants and his sallivations over Obama’s alleged pro-Jewishness in The Jerusalem Post before the November 2008 elections. No rational argument and no amount of facts presented to him that showed Obama as an insane islamo-marxist, determined to damage America and abandon Israel would sway Dershowitz away from his blind infatuation with The One.
      Dershowitz is simply one of the legion of rats abandoning the sinking ship. The another very prominent leftoid-American-Jew cretin producing his pro Obama hallucination in JP was the former major of New York, Edward Koch.
      In a moral sense they both are FELL BEASTS.

      • NJK

        I almost feel sorry for him. It’s hard when you’ve been conned by someone like that. Look at the 900 people in Jonestown who were conned into suicide. Look at the women who were lured to help Ted Bundy by the fake cast on his arm. Zero’s no different than them. I just hope more people will join us to kick his face in politically in November. I wish we could take George Washington’s route, pick up our guns, get on our horses, and just shoot them. That would give me great satisfaction, and I’m not a violent person.

    • tvlgds

      I have never understood how Jewish and Catholics could ever vote Democrat.

      • warpmine

        Neither can I. Long ago, Catholics were discriminated against as were the Jews, but today all teh bigots are in the DemonRat party.

        • tvlgds

          Plus the democrap platform is so opposite of their doctrine. I don’t get it!

          • warpmine

            Generations of being stuck on stupid???? Who knows.

            • tvlgds

              seems so!

      • Yazz55

        “I have never understood how Jewish and Catholics could ever vote Democrat.”

        As a Jew, I’ve wondered about this for many years.

        How can a God fearing Jew possibly have any support for the atheist marxist agenda eludes me.

  • stevenbiot

    I was under the impression that all liberals were brainless nutjobs. I stand corrected! Obama is going to get rolled next election. Liberals aren’t going to control the White House for quite a long time after Obama is tossed out on his rump.

    • hbnolikeee

      Hope you’re right, bud!

      • stevenbiot

        Me too!

    • tvlgds

      Jimmy Carter got us Ronald Reagan, but I don’t see anyone of that stature in the running now–if only we could get Allen West!

  • toongoon

    Now, if he can keep this line of thinking and make a few a comments like this every week, encouraging others to speak up as well, he just might redeem himself.

    • Linky1

      Especially when the comments are from “their own” kind, meaning liberals.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Preach it Alan. The truth hurts – thank you for being honest and brave.

    I think Maobama’s sleep potion is starting to wear off… 🙂

    • toongoon

      I would prefer throwing a bucket of ice water on them…….and then clunk them with the bucket.

      • stevenbiot

        Just make sure to hit them upside the head; it is as useful as an appendix in the modern liberal.

      • Sober_Thinking

        ROFL! And then punch them in the throat…


    • stevenbiot

      Yeah, but he’s about to serve a billion dollars worth of kool-aid to the American public.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Sad but true. It’s so wrong to say it… but sometimes wish Jim Jones was doing the stirring… Many of these people will never wake up anyway.

        Alright… sorry. That was WAY out of line. I’m just sick of the dumb masses and their gullability.

        • stevenbiot

          Maybe would could get a hold of Jim’s DNA, clone him, and unleash the clones on the libs for a little “wine” tasting party on Martha’s Vineyard.

          • Sober_Thinking

            It’s just snooty enough to work! 😉

        • toongoon

          …..and their lemminglike individualism?

        • NJK

          Jim Jones had many ties to the Democratic Party including Jerry Brown. Let’s face it, the government has been taken over by radical communists, and we have all the resources in the world, and no one is doing anything to remove him. This one man is allowed to get away with all this damage. I don’t know if I’ll ever feel safe in this country again, after what he’s been allowed to do. I guess I foolishly thought those alphabet agencies were looking out for the people, only to find out their not.

            Wow. Very interesting link! I may have inadvertantly opened up a new can of worms…

            Thanks for that. 🙂

            P.S. The more I learn about all of that and Jim Jones, the madder I get. Liberals…

    • BankGuy

      Perhaps a religious awakening??

      • Sober_Thinking

        One can hope. Nice play on words. 😉

  • stevenbiot

    I want them all to break out in a Marxist, utopian fist fight.

  • F22stealth

    He mentioned “Fascism” but not Communism. Communism was not any better for Jews and Israel than was Fascism. Many Communist Jews left the former Soviet Union and came here to spread their ideology in our universities and government! In the long run, Israel will suffer for this! Traitors, all of them! Thank you Professor for coming to your senses, sort of!

      Always remember, free speech has evolved over the last several decades to meal liberal speech only. Conservative speech equates to hate speach in the opinion of lefties and should not be protected.

  • Now this it the kind of democrat we can “reach-across the aisle” and compromise with.

    • tvlgds

      And we need to reach across the aisle and beotch slap the majority!

  • NJK

    It’s a darn shame that the monster in the White House has been permitted to do this to this country and it’s citizens. Do you hear that Mr. Boehner? Mr. Boehner is complicit.

    And just when you think it can’t get any worse, there’s this.

    Everyone, we’re being horribly betrayed. This is Treason for God’s sake.

    “FBI officials say they are willing to consider a proposal from a coalition of Muslim and interfaith groups to establish a committee of experts to review materials used in FBI anti-terrorism training.”

    • Damn, it hate this! I had high hopes for Speaker Boehner, whether I was misguided or not.

  • KenInMontana

    Evidence indeed that the left is starting to unravel.

    • tvlgds

      Let’s just hope it unravels enough to end the reign of terror after one term! OMG (Obama Must Go!)

  • He just may be on the same road to recovery that a lot of our conservative brothers like David Hirowitz, and Thomas Sowell traveled.

  • WordsFailMe

    Your a little late to this party Alan, but you still might be able to catch the train. Where have you been for three years. Don’t expect any sympathy from the rest of us who’ve despised and worked against your liberal brothers and cousins for years.

  • Ciscokidd

    It took you this long Alan?

    Welcome to the family

  • Been_There_BT

    So Alan, now tell us how you feel about the violations to our Constitution, our economy in ruins and Obamacare, or doesn’t that stuff matter so much?

  • Johnmann

    By coming on Hannity, Dershowitz is preaching to the choir… but what good is that going to do to stop Media Matters?

    He should be knocking heads with the 30 MAJOR JEWISH DONORS that regularly contribute to Media Matters. Daily Caller just compiled a list and spread sheet:

    Now, if old Dershowitz had some real juice, he’d be complaining to… Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston, Stephen M. Silbertstein Foundation, Schumann Center for Media and Democracy… and the like… to turn off the tens of millions donated to MM annually. These venerable Jewish orgs don’t seem to have any problems with “anti-semitic” or “fascistic” activity… because they ARE Media Matters.

  • Constance

    I am not a fan of Dershowitz. He is a staunch anti-gun advocate, favoring repeal of the 2nd Amendment. He believes that warrants should be issued before any “torture” of suspected terror suspects – The term “torture” is still undefined, in my opinion. He currently speaks of the ills of Rev. Wright, but back in 2008, he was a huge supporter of Obama for President. Sorry, but I can’t get on the bandwagon with these liberals, no matter what magic moments of lucidity they have now and then. How a Jew could support Obama for president in the first place is ridiculous. Suddenly, Mr. Dershowitz is all upset about Media Matters? Who does he think has been working for the democrat party all along? Putz.

  • gothicreader

    Wow, he compared the extremist left to David Duke – Good!

    The truth has no agenda only those who try to destroy with false lies.

    • tvlgds

      Good ole David Duke. We lived in his congressional district. When he ran for governor of La against scoundrel Edwin Edwards, the bumper stickers put out by Edwards’ side were classic. “Vote for the crook, it’s important!”

  • tvlgds

    Wow, and he’s pretty liberal!

    • actionsspeaklouder

      But, make no mistake, he’s a Jew first. I’m not saying that negatively, it’s just a fact. It’s his heritage and his blood.

  • veek46

    Maybe its dawning on our Jewish friends that it’s the Jews that suffer most under fascism and that is where we are headed if Obama wins reelection.

  • Somethings can’t be ignored and don’t require explanation to anyone with any intellect at all but maybe therein lies the problem; This country is populated with a enormous number of fools and dummies. Too obtuse to fend off Soros’ propaganda machine which is an extention of the Rothschild criminal enterprise.

  • Delilahlah

    Something the last poster does not realize….Soros and the Rothschilds are in no way alike. Soros in an evil, sell out capo without a soul. The Rotsckild empire is the anti-Soros and not in anyway a liberal enterprise. Dershowitz took a big step here, thank God! I had lunchh with him a few months back and nearly left the table. Did I mention that I am a Jew that has stood virulently against Obama since day one? That I loathe everything he stands for? That he is antithetical to all things godly? Wish I could friend most of you on FB.

  • Alan, glad you are saying this but the history of the Democratic Party shows that they won’t drop Media Matters.Add to that what nobama is doing to Israel and you need to change parties.

  • Calvinius

    Dershowitz is not a liberal. He’s a neoconservative warmonger. And that’s exactly why he has a problem with Media Matters.

  • Sorry Alan, but not all Jews support the state of Israel or Israeli policies. True Torah Jews certainly do not support Israel – and for good reasons. Why don’t you read the biography of Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism and the modern state of Israel. He didn’t act like a religious Jew. He was little more than a dandified Jew from Budapest who was enthusiastic about duelling and whose dearest wish was that he might have been born a Prussian aristocrat. In his idealized Jewish state nobody spoke Hebrew – they spoke German! Herzl was really anti-Jewish and a crypto-Germanophile.
