it might have shown he was legally competent, at least.

The funny thing, friend Hatrack, is that you are only defending Dershowitz because he is defending Trump. You don't know what his position is. You don't know his legal reasoning (or lack thereof), and you don't care. You haven't read the report, or even Dershowitz version of it. All that matters is, he pisses liberals (and other sentient beings) off.

You understand that we are talking about the party who elected Donald Trump...I think it's you whose understanding of things is a bit whack.

Do you know how long I've been railing about that, my friend? Since 1979.

Yes, I am defending Dershowitz because he is a Trump supporter. I am defending his right to believe what he wants to. I am defending the fact that he pisses liberals off and is a sentient being no matter what he believes. Doing that is what is known as freedom. The freedom to support any political candidate you want to. What his position is, what his legal reasoning is, does not matter! What matters is his right to do and believe what he wants to. But he has committed the terrible crime of being a TRUMP SUPPORTER and that automatically makes whatever he says wrong!

See, right there is the core of the matter. Regressives believe only in winning, and reality can go to hell...

What a crock of s***! Winning or losing has nothing to do with supporting freedom. As someone who supports freedom I defend a person's right to be wrong. I defend unpopular opinions, the more unpopular they are the more I defend them. Does that makes me a Regressive? Hell NO! To defend freedom is one of the most progressive ideas in human history.
