Dershowitz Vows to Leave Democrat Party If Ellison Becomes DNC Chair

Alan Dershowitz and I attended the same high school, Brooklyn Talmudical Academy. He was a few years ahead of me, and like me, was a notoriously terrible student.

I left the Democrat party in time to vote for Ronal Reagan. It became obvious to me that the Democrats were moving to radical policies that embrace an ever-expanding administrative state, where identity politics elevates victimhood, and where hatred of Israel/Jews is common currency.

Alan Dershowitz should leave the Democrat party because, through Obama’s infamous nuclear deal, they enable the IslamoNazis of Iran with billions in cash. Dershowitz should bolt the Democrats because they are seriously considering Ellison, an obvious IslamoNazi Jew-hater, as leader of their party.

Ellison is the Islamist version of the KKK.

Dershowitz’s desperate statement reminds me of the Hollywood celebrities who pledged to leave America if Donald Trump was elected.

Guess what? No one cares. And of course, no one left.

While Alan Dershowitz is a staunch liberal, he’s threatening to leave the Democratic Party should Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) become the next chairman for the national committee. Dershowitz, a renowned attorney and Israel supporter, said he would resign due to Ellison’s positions on the Israeli-Palestinian issue and his association with Louis Farrakhan (via Washington Examiner):

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.”

Ellison had defended Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has been accused of anti-Semitism. Ellison defended him against these charges. Even the Obama White House was reportedly worried about the concept of Ellison taking the reins at the DNC—and Ellison’s staff seem to know how sensitive the congressman’s association with the NOI leader has become; he bolted from a New York Times interview when the publication told him that they would ask him about his ties to Farrakhan. His speech in 2010 about Israel, where he questioned why U.S. policy is guided by a country of seven million people (i.e. Israel).

“A region of 350 million all turns on a country of 7 million. Does that make sense? Is that logic? Right?” Ellison reportedly said at the time. The Anti-Defamation League called such remarks disqualifying.

Dershowitz has recently taken to the airwaves to slam the Obama administration over the recent UN resolution that condemned Israeli settlements, noting that the document also says that the Western Wall is in an occupied territory. He declared that Obama will be one of the worst foreign policy presidents in history, and that he stabbed Israel in the back for not ordering Ambassador Samantha Power to veto the resolution.

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    That Ellison is in the mix means that the Democrats are already gone. If Dershowitz does not realize, and I believe he does not, then the point being made by him, and about himself, is that he is not so smart as proclaimed by the media. Could they be in error You bet. Academic credentials and a thin voice don’t cut it. No one, absolutely no one cares about what Alan Dershowitz, thinks, hopes, believes or threatens.

      The thinking of every law student (former, present, future) is molded by Dershowitz. You should care what he is saying because he has enormous influence on the entire judiciary.

        He has always been on the wrong side of every issue, including the Claus Von Bulow case.

          Merely saying he has enormous influence, especially on the left. His defense of Israel could begin the swing of the pendulum. Well, one can hope.

          Dershowitz was rightly critical of the prosecution in the Duke Lacrosse rape case, and has been on the right side of a number of other cases since then. There’s some hope for him.

            He had no involvement, just pontificating publicly because he can. When I wrote about the wrong side, I meant about meaningful engagement.

    Most of these threats are rhetorical and I doubt Dershowitz will do it, even if Ellison get the job. It will be another sign of the suicide of the Democrats.
