I was literally left in stitches by this....

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday he won’t let radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders steal the spirit of the Democratic Party and doubled-down on his attack on fellow liberals who “shunned” him at Martha's Vineyard.

“I won’t let the Democrats steal my party from me. I want to regain the center,” Dershowitz told WABC Radio’s “Curtis and Cosby” show, noting that he will remain a Democrat as “as long as there’s some chance the Democratic Party can return to normalcy.”

Heh look at that -- free speech!

Both in the execution thereof and the refusal thereof.

Funny how one gets protection and the other derision.  Yet both are the same, which means it's the person's leaning politically that matters, not whether they're speaking.

“These are people who have asked me for help over the years, who have asked me for support when their kid gets busted on a marijuana charge, or on possession of alcohol, I’m the first one they call,” he added. “But as soon as I defend the rights of Donald Trump or anybody else they disagree with, I’m am a pariah.”

So it took Alan being the target of a refusal to speak before he figured it out.

Take heed folks: That means it works.

Shunning is peaceful, it's legal and it works.

Do you need anything more to understand why this is quite-arguably the most-important tool you have?
