Congress Racism WTF?!

Alan Dershowitz Compares Maxine Waters To The KKK And Gets Hit With Massive Internet Fury

In what some are calling a desperate cry for attention, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz set off a firestorm of revulsion and anger by comparing Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) to the domestic terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

According to Mediaite, Dershowitz’s comments came during an appearance on Newsmax Tuesday in response to remarks made by Waters on the trial of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin.

Specifically, Waters urged the fight for justice to continue no matter what the verdict was in the Chauvin trial:

“We have got to fight for justice. I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. I don’t know whether it’s in the first degree, but as far as I’m concerned it’s first degree.

“We have got to stay on the streets and we have got to get more active. We have got to get more confrontational. We have got to make sure that they know that they know we mean business.”

Dershowitz was outraged by what Waters said, responding:

“That’s not the way the system of justice should operate. We’re not under the rule of law in Minneapolis, we’re under the rule of the crowd.

“The irony of what Congresswoman Waters did, she borrowed the playbook of the Ku Klux Klan from the 192os, the 1930s. They would stand outside of courtrooms and they would threatened violence if any juror would ever acquit, a black person or convict a white person.”

Dershowitz then added:

“Now we’re seeing exactly the opposite was seeing mobs outside the courthouse and was seeing members of Congress just like the Klan had governors and senators and very prominent public officials demanding verdicts in particular cases is and now we have a member of Congress demanding a verdict in the case.”

That didn’t sit well with many on Twitter, who blasted Dershowitz for such a disgusting comparison and reminded him of the allegations against him:

Alan Dershowitz may have been a brilliant lawyer in his day, but now he’s just another right-wing nutjob. And God knows there are way too many of those.
