Professor Alan Dershowitz challenged “Morning Joe” to a debate, saying a woman wanted to stab him for having personal opinions during a Thursday interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Are you doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin?” Tucker asked Dershowitz.
“Of course not. I hate Vladimir Putin. I hate what he stands for. I hate tyranny in the world. I’m not doing the bidding of President Trump. I opposed Donald Trump’s immigration policy, his approach to Charlottesville and when I have an opportunity, I tell him that,” Dershowitz said.
He added that he would make the same criticisms even if Hillary Clinton were president.
Dershowitz then described a scenario at a Martha’s Vineyard party where a woman said she “would stab him through the heart” if he were attending the party.
“Put aside clam bakes and cocktail parties and put aside what ‘Morning Joe’ was saying. I challenge morning Joe to have me on the show when he mocks me so I can respond. It’s easy and kind of unfair to attack someone and not give them the opportunity to respond. Let’s see if he has the guts to put me on the show to tell his viewers the truth,” Dershowitz dared.
The context of the discussion was how Dershowitz has been shunned by liberals, despite holding on to his classical liberal principles, simply because he doesn’t support the impeachment of Donald Trump. He was also attacked by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough as being a puppet of Vladimir Putin.
The anecdote is another illustration of how the left’s hysterical tone in regard to the Trump administration’s policies is causing some on the left to speak and act out in unhinged ways.
Dershowitz went on to blame Professor Nicholas Negroponte for, “Leading the campaign to try to get other people to shun me in every way and not to engage with me,” before asserting that such individuals were “losing” because Americans “can’t stand people who try to stop speech and try to stop debate.”
“The Democrat Party has been taken over by radicals who have no interest in due process….they don’t want any dissent, they don’t want any argument,” said Dershowitz, adding that professors like Negroponte telling students not to engage with people they disagree with is a “terrible reflection of what’s going on in the United States of America.”
Dershowitz then challenged Scarborough to have him on his show, stating, “Let’s see if he has the guts to put me on his show so I can tell his viewers the truth.”
