“This is McCarthyism; this is just McCarthyism” Constitutional Scholar and iconic Civil Rights Lawyer Alan Dershowitz said Sunday, denouncing the “cancel culture” being promoted by liberals in the U.S. today.
Dershowitz, joined by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), discussed the blacklisting of former President Donald Trump’s allies and leftist reaction to Trump’s acquittal Saturday in his Senate impeachment trial.
Trump impeachment trial defense attorney, Michael Van Der Veen, is the latest of the former president’s allies to become a victim of “cancel culture.” “My entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now,” Van Der Veen told Fox News on Saturday.
“Look, the impeachment may be over, but the blacklisting is stronger than ever,” Host Maria Bartiromo said. “President Trump’s attorney, Michael Van Der Veen, is being threatened now for defending the former president. He had a horrible day yesterday.”
“If we don’t push back on this and stop it, and stand up as Mr. Dershowitz said – stand up for the Constitution and the First Amendment – it will only get worse. And, so, this is the number one issue for the country to address today,” Rep. Jordan warned.
“We fight back. Cancel culture is quickly becoming American culture,” Dershowitz said.
