Dershowitz: Geller Critics Should Realize MLK Provoked, Too

Critics of Pamela Geller, organizer of the “Draw the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas last Sunday, should realize that while she may have intended to provoke a negative reaction from extreme Islamists, she shares something in common with civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., says Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.

“I don’t want to make any comparisons morally or legally, but from a constitutional law point of view, there’s no difference,” Dershowitz said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File.”

King purposely picked some of the cities he led protests in precisely in order to bring out the racists and show what kind of violent people they are, Dershowitz said

“It’s part of the American tradition to provoke so that the world can see,” he said

    Sometimes everyone sees things as a black and white issue. There should be NO doubt that Ms. Geller had every RIGHT to do what she did. But does she MORALLY deserve the right to go on talk-shows, get book deals, get hefty speaker fees for giving talks, etc. and PROFITING off of the bloodshed that happened in Texas? As an individual whose only real contribution to society is waving the middle finger at the Muslim world, I think the answer is no. I support the right of the KKK and neo-Nazis to hold rallies and meetings. Indeed, our courts and laws uphold that even the most heinous of people have the right to speech so long as it doesn’t harm anyone. The Islamofascists that disagree have no place in our society. But, then, why does simply having the right to do something mean we have to praise them?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
