Harvard Professor Emeritus Warns Justice System is Infected with CRT

“People today are rooting, cheering for verdicts. They want verdicts to reflect their narrative.”

John Solomon of Just the News recently interviewed Professor Alan Dershowitz. He stated that America’s justice system is being infected with the radical ideology of Critical Race Theory, similar to what we see in education.

Alan Dershowitz has a chilling warning for judges, prosecutors, and defense lawyers. That is, America’s justice system is being corrupted by identity politics and critical race theory.

Dershowitz is deeply concerned about the growing trend in recent criminal cases toward political agendas replacing the neutral consideration of evidence and law that has been the lifeblood of U.S. jurisprudence for more than two centuries.

“It’s becoming much more responsive, unfortunately, to critical race theory, basically, everything’s about race,” Dershowitz told the John Solomon Reports podcast

“The justice system has stopped being about is this particular person innocent or guilty beyond a reasonable doubt based on the evidence and based on the law. People today are rooting, cheering for verdicts. They want verdicts to reflect their narrative. They want verdicts to prove their way of looking at the world. Trials and justice have ceased to be about individual justice. They’re about identity politics.”

Dershowitz sees the George Floyd case as the turning point.

Dershowitz said the aftermath of the George Floyd tragedy in Minneapolis created a tipping point where racial activists and woke ideologues have forced discussions ranging from education to business to be centered solely on race.

“I’m 83 years old, and I will never live to see or return to the days when we follow Martin Luther King’s quest dream,” Dershowitz lamented. “He dreamt of the time when his children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the quality of their character. That’s not going to happen.

We must arrest every public service official..both elected or appointed that are ignoring the constitution and or not following the rule of law….If they are a hired ..eg..like a teacher..they must be fired. We have an impossible task ahead of us…It starts locally and works it way up.

Marxist theories will be applied to everything as part of the not so Great Reset Leap Forward.
It’s not just economics anymore for the Long March to burn it all down better and their crackpot faculty lounge Marxist rot and decay.
Since there are hardly any oppressors in a capitalist society, the ever reliable race card will have to be in full court press until the YT cracka wayciss (gasp!) society is destroyed by any means necessary.

Even now Dershowitz can’t admit the truth. It’s not the right that’s calling for blood, regardless of the facts. It’s solely the left.

Our courts have been thoroughly corrupt for many generations, buy it was mostly hidden. Now it’s ‘IN YOUR FACE!’
An example is the Maxwell trial. The fact that it is being prosecuted by SDNY is very telling. That is a thoroughly political office operated for the benefit of the DNC. The assigned prosecutor is Comey, who is to protect the Clintons, as her father did. The judge, Nathan, has been nominated to the DC Circuit Court, prior to her handling the trial. That will insure her cooperation. We used to call that a bribe.
