The Martha’s Vineyard crowd strikes back at Alan Dershowitz

For years, former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz and some of his high-profile pals have spent summer afternoons opining on the porch at the Chilmark General Store on Martha’s Vineyard.

Not this summer, and maybe never again. As a result of Dershowitz’s vocal opposition to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia, the coffee klatch has turned combative. In recent days, the clique has been exchanging bitter e-mails that lay bare the anger over Dershowitz’s seeming support for the president, which is a no-no on the Vineyard, a liberal enclave that has great antipathy for Trump.

That whole thing gets funnier.   First, he whined that he's not getting invited to Martha's Vineyard parties anymore.

Then people started mocking him for it, and now he's going, "No, I'm glad!  Really, I didn't want to go to those parties, anyway!"



"Sour! Sour!"

It is not a matter of liberal or conservative. His brilliant Harvard legal mind has been rendered mediocre and simply illogical and not consistent with the constitution and case law. He takes increasingly strange legal positions which have no basis. He is a little bit off the rails. I think most intelligent people who understand the subtle nuances of the law find him to be very pedestrian now.

To me, it's just further evidence of how the dialogue/narrative of both parties is increasingly being driven by the more extremist elements.

It's all black-and-white on both sides ... even the mere suggestion there could be any shades of gray will not be tolerated.

The last few times I've read his columns or seen his interviews, I came away with the impression he was just trying to drum up some business.

He's such an unreconstructed hawk on Israel that he's half-crazy with it. He charges anyone who even mildly criticizes Israel with being antisemitic and supporters of the PLO--despite the fact the Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have both condemned Israel's human rights abuses.

He even tried to make excuses for Israel's bombing of the U.S.S. Liberty, an incident that left 34 crew members dead and another 117 injured. Dershowitz is a real scumbag, he should have been shunned like the moral leper he is years ago.

We'll have no more talk about "shades of grey".

Great graphic. So true.
