Alan Dershowitz Warns the Justice System is Being Infected by Identity Politics and Critical Race Theory
“People today are rooting, cheering for verdicts. They want verdicts to reflect their narrative.”
Professor Alan Dershowitz recently gave an interview to John Solomon of Just the News and claimed that America’s justice system is being infected with the radical ideology of Critical Race Theory, not unlike what’s happening in education.
After watching the left’s reaction to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, it’s impossible to disagree.
John Solomon wrote about their discussion at Just the News:
Alan Dershowitz’s stark warning: Justice system becoming infected by critical race theory
Alan Dershowitz, the famed law scholar and appellate lawyer, has a stark warning for judges, prosecutors and defense lawyers: America’s justice system is being corrupted by identity politics and critical race theory.
In an interview with Just the News, Dershowitz deplored the growing trend in recent criminal cases toward political agendas supplanting 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 in an interview aired this week. “Everything’s about race or politics.
“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.”
According to Dershowitz, the George Floyd case was 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.
