Democrat Alan Dershowitz Warns America Against the Attempts to ‘Psychiatrize’ President Trump

Professor Dershowitz: Psychiatrists trying to declare Trump is unstable …pose an enormous danger [to democracy].

“…you know there’s only one thing worse than trying to criminalize political differences and that’s trying to ‘psychiatrize’ them, these psychiatrists now who are trying to diagnose without ever having met the man. That’s what they did in Russia. I represented dissidents who they locked up in mental hospitals. That’s what they did in China. That’s what they did in apartheid South Africa.

How dare liberals, people on the Left, try to undo democracy by accusing a president of being mentally ill without any basis.

Look, the 25th Amendment doesn’t apply. Everybody knew who Donald Trump was when they elected him. I didn’t vote for him. I voted against him. People voted for him but he hasn’t changed by the office and this idea of diagnosing him instead of opposing him politically poses an enormous danger. He’s arguably one of the most vetted candidates to ever run for office…”

If anything Donald Trump has done that would lead me to say he’s crazy is his decision to sacrifice his privacy and wealth to right this ship of state. But, he’s not crazy. He’s a patriot.

I remember well how in my lifetime leading Democrats were patriots. I’m thinking of Harry Truman, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Elvis Pressley. There are many others who served in uniform with the distinction of patriotism.

Where is the Democrat Party today? Democrats hate veterans, despise patriotism, embrace socialism, communism, and atheism, three foes Americans fought in WW2, Korea, and Vietnam.

  1. You say “Democrats hate veterans, despise patriotism.” That’s a pretty outlandish claim, and not helpful or productive. It’s this type of divisive rhetoric that makes our deep state of division worse and worse today. C’mon, surely you see that. Whatever your political preference, neither of the two parties is pure evil like that.

    Also, you say you remember well how in my lifetime leading Democrats as patriots, citing FDR, JFK, Elvis, etc., and admit “there are many others who served in uniform with the distinction of patriotism.” You do realize that our President now, Donald Trump, never served, right? That he dodged the draft on more than one occasion, based on supposed health issues? Even though his doctor said he’d be “the healthiest person to ever run for office”?

    John, it’s time to put country before party. You lambasted Obama for years, much of the time justifiably, but also sometimes unjustifiably (like for debunked newsclaims or quotes or images), and NEVER gave him credit for anything. Now, with Trump, who admittedly gets more flack than he deserves in some instances, you NEVER hold him accountable, or admit when he’s done wrong. John, I’m not sure if you’ll admit it, but you’re a part of the problem we’re in today. The deep division we’re in is in part because of this tribal politics, which you promote here just about every time you post. Surely you can see this?

  2. Chandler,

    Thank you for your comments.

    The fact President Trump never served in uniform puts him in good company with tens of millions of American citizens. As for military service, my grandfather joined the CSA at age 13, my father served in the Navy in the North
    Sea during WW1, my brother James served in the Army during WW2 and I am a Vietnam-era Naval veteran and a Vietnam combat zone civilian veteran. I continue in a lesser role as an active member of the Terry Fisher Post 117 of the American Legion right here in Rockwall.

    None of my four children, all in their 40’s, except one who passed away last March, have ever served in the U.S. armed forces. The eldest serves his country as a tenured professor, volcano expert, an acclaimed scientist. The son who died last spring started his career as an EMT, quickly earned his Paramedic license, and soon after became a Registered Nurse and Certified Flight Nurse. He worked trauma only, nine of his years in the Parkland ER, the rest in other hospital emergency rooms. The third, a son, serves as chairman of Meals on Wheels and was a three-term city councilman. My youngest, a daughter, leads a Classical Conversations homeschool group and is also an officer in my company.

    My four children served and continue to serve, their fellow Americans without once wearing a military uniform.

    Active duty military is only one thousands of ways our fellow Americans serve the citizens of this great country.

    As for Obama, he is a socialist ideologue who nearly doubled the national debt and drove great businesses offshore. His blatant disdain for law enforcement officers spawned public unrest in metropolitan areas. Obama was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents and mentored by communists. Gerald Horne (
    Communist Party USA) said of Obama’s election, as “the ones we have been waiting for.”

    Obama’s revocation of the wet-foot-dry-foot refugee policy applicable to Cubans and his liberation of travel to and trade with Cuba served to keep the communist government afloat through taxes on a 100% of all tourist dollars.

    I knew what to expect in 2008 long before he was elected. He told me what to expect through his speeches.

    Today, Obama is a dangerous subversive hell-bent on the destruction of our republic.

    With respect to your claim that I am “part of the problem we’re in today”, I suggest you reexamine your worldview in the context of our history, and various documents on which this nation was founded.

    If Donald Trump were to show himself to be a communist or a subversive, you can be sure my blog, email list, Twitter account and Facebook pages would light up. As it is, he is doing exactly what he promised he would do.

    The deep division you point to is not of my making; it’s a product of progressive liberal education that revises history and promotes bizarre ideas like transgenderism and boys and girls showering together.

    I am confident President Trump will not be kowtowing to despots like Kim Jong Un, or secretly paying billions of dollars ransom to the Muslim government of Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism.

    The big divide in America today is along the line of atheism vs. Christianity, the pro-abortion vs. pro-life advocacies.

    I am part of the solution. Where are you? Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?
