Renowned Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz made headlines with his coverage of Kyle Rittenhouse, with a particular focus on “intellectual thugs” at a particular network. .
In an interview with Newsmax TV, Dershowitz not only criticized the media for misrepresenting Rittenhouse, but also pointed out that they could be held accountable for smearing him.
Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said “racism, pure and simple” was “racist, pure and simple” in mocking Kyle Rittenhouse for crying in the audience. radio when testifying.
The famous lawyer also suggested on Newsmax’s “Saturday Report” for the 18-year-old to contact legal representation if he wants to sue CNN for reporting on the case.
“You can watch yourself crying on TV and then you see the wire-pullers attack him, saying it was a set-up,” Dershowitz said.
“Imagine if it was a Black man, a member of Black Lives Matter, who killed in self-defense and who cried in the witness stand. None of those people are going to tick him off,” he continued.
“It is racist, pure and simple. There is no way to get over it. “
He then references Martin Luther King’s call that people should judge their character, not the color of their skin.
“That’s not what CNN does,” he said. “That’s not what a lot of other people in the media do. Everything is race politics, except when it’s not race politics,” he said, going on to refer to a case in Georgia involving three white men accused of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a black man, noted that the defense attempted to remove notable black figures, including Father Al Sharpton and Father Jesse Jackson, from the courtroom.
“It’s not racial politics, except when lawyers in Georgia point out the fact that the minister who came to the courtroom was black,” Dershowitz said.
“Oh, my God, that’s racist. You can’t mention a person’s race, but you must mention a person’s race when it helps the story. It’s hypocritical. It was bizarre,” he continued.
Then, Dershowitz, who filed his own $300 million defamation lawsuit against CNN, offered to share his research with Rittenhouse’s legal team should he decide to go after the network.
“I support any lawsuit he tries to bring against the intellectual thugs at CNN who are still trying to lie, lie and lie about the case,” Dershowitz said.
“If you listen to CNN, this is a young man crossing the state line with an illegal firearm and causing a confrontation and has never had anything life-threatening,” he said. added.
“All of these are lies, and they keep repeating themselves, even after sentencing. You can’t believe anything you see on CNN or on CNBC or MSNBC. It was just a scandal.”
