Law Professor Alan Dershowitz Says He Will Leave the Democrat Party if anti-Semitite Rep. Keith Ellison is Elected DNC chairman
WHICH PARTY IS IN DISARRAY?
As the Democrat party is on the verge of electing a new DNC chairman, law professor and activist Alan Dershowitz says he will leave the Democrat party. Dershowitz claims that he will quit the Democrat party and become an Independent. Although he says, he is not leaving the Democrat party, the Democrat party has left him. The question remains, just how far left is the Democrat party about to go with this key vote today and are they ready for the backlash of their decision?
Alan Dershowitz is correct, the Democrat party has left many as this party has become so far fringe-left, that it is not even recognizable anymore.
There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to elect Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., as chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting. I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats. But I will not contribute to the DNC or support it as an institution.
My loyalty to my country and my principles and my heritage exceeds any loyalty to my party. I will urge other like-minded people — centrist liberals — to follow my lead and quit the Democratic Party if Ellison is elected chairman. We will not be leaving the Democratic Party we have long supported. The Democratic Party will be leaving us!
Let me explain the reasons for this difficult decision.
Ellison has a long history of sordid association with anti-Semitism. He worked with and repeatedly defended one of a handful of the most notorious and public anti-Semites in our country: The Reverend Louis Farrakhan. And worked with Farrakhan at the very time this anti-Semite was publicly describing Judaism as a gutter religion and insisting that the Jews were a primary force in the African slave trade.
Ellison has publicly stated that he was unaware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. That is not a credible statement. Everyone was aware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. Farrakhan did not try to hide it. Indeed, he proclaimed it on every occasion. Ellison is either lying or he willfully blinded himself to what was obvious to everyone else. Neither of these qualities makes him suitable to be the next chairman of the DNC.
