Dershowitz: Dems Declaring Trump Mentally Ill Straight Out of Communist Playbook

“That’s what they did in Russia”

Harvard law school professor Alan Dershowitz warns that Democrats attempting to declare Trump mentally unfit to hold office is straight out of the Communist playbook of brutal regimes like Soviet Russia, who repressed and imprisoned political dissidents by declaring them to be mentally ill.

Asked if the chatter was intended to have a destabilizing effect, Dershowitz responded, “Well it’s very dangerous, 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,” added the Harvard professor.

He went on to assert that leftists were trying to “undo democracy” by accusing a president of being mentally unstable without any evidence whatsoever.

Dershowitz said that he didn’t personally vote for Trump but that the idea of “diagnosing him instead of opposing him politically poses an enormous danger to democracy.”

Back to the tactics of old, if they say something bad about the Pres. they must be communist. Care to relate how Trump's campaign strategies relate to facism? "That's what they did in Germany."

Dershowitz is correct, of course.
Everything happening in our society right now is parallel to the construction of a communist government by the jewish bankers in Russia with Lenin, Trotsky, and then Stalin. Everything. Check it out folks. Really interesting stuff happening in the world and it is all being done by design.

He didn't say they were communist. Just stating old tactics used. The democrats will try anything to get Trump out of office. This tactic will vanish just like sexual harrassment accusations. Why the hate. It can't be that Hillary lost.
