Alan Dershowitz: ‘Fog of fascism’ quickly descending on American universities

Alan Dershowitz Megyn KellyHarvard law professor and Yale law school graduate, Alan Dershowitz, believes college campuses are becoming bastions of fascism.

“We are seeing a curtain of McCarthyism descend over many college campuses. I don’t want to make analogies to the 1930s, but it was the college students who first started burning books during the Nazi regime. These students are book burners,” he told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Thursday.

The attorney and author said those in charge of the colleges, and professors with tenure, have to fight back against these students and their hypocrisy.

“They want complete control over their personal lives, over their sex lives, over the use of drugs, but they want mommy and daddy dean to please give them a safe place, to protect them from ideas that maybe are insensitive, maybe will make them think,” he said.

“You have to speak back to the students, you have to call these things what they are: double standards, hypocrisy, bigotry, McCarthyism, and the fog of fascism is descending quickly over many American universities,” Dershowitz said.
