Grilled by Fox News host, GOP senator defends BLM
Fox News viewers witnessed a lively debate between a show host and a U.S. senator this week, on the cable network’s most-watched program, and a constituent says he was ashamed at what he saw.
A prominent Harvard Law professor is threatening to sue the University of California at Berkeley over unfair guidelines for campus speakers.
Alan Dershowitz, a self-described liberal and a vocal supporter of Israel, says Berkeley treats pro-Israel speakers differently from anti-Israel speakers.
The famously far-left campus, the left-wing professor told Fox News, considers him a "high visibility" speaker, which means he must give eight weeks' notice if she plans to speak to students.
"Now here's the trick," he said. "Departments invite anti-Israel speakers all the time. They don't have to go through the eight-week thing. "
Berkeley is a taxpayer-funded institution that is bound by the First Amendment, he says, "so they can't impose one rule on pro-Israel speakers and one rule on anti-Israel speakers, one rule on conservatives one rule on liberals."
If the university refuses to change its policy, Dershowitz says, then it's off to court.
