Famed Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz sounded off on campus protests on Wednesday during an appearance on FOX Business.
â€œI think todayâ€™s college students think they know the truth. They donâ€™t have to hear an opposing point of view,â€ Dershowitz told Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria. â€œIâ€™m not saying all students. Itâ€™s actually a small number of sensors, but they can shut down a university and college administrators havenâ€™t been as strong as they should be in standing up to these students.â€
While explaining the demographics for students expressing their views on college campuses, he argued Americans, Christians and Zionists are enforcing opposing points of views and creating â€œincreasing censorship,â€ during public events and in the classroom.
â€œClassrooms have become propaganda vehicles where captive audiences of students are told not how to think, but what to think particularly about sensitive issues like the Middle East, the Arab-Israeli conflict, gay rights, Black Lives Matter, [and] other hot button issues. They are told what to think and they are graded on what they think rather than how they think,â€ he said.
Dershowitz is scheduled to address free speech at Columbia University on Wednesday evening. Despite concerns over protests, he said his is confident Columbia will protect him and hopes there wonâ€™t be efforts to shout him down.
