The New McCarthyism...

..it ain't pretty...

•• Q: You’re no stranger to defending people who are unpopular. Is this actually worse than when you defended O.J. Simpson?

•• A: Of course. Or Claus von Bulow or Leona Helmsley or Michael Milken or Mike Tyson. This is much worse than all that, because in those cases people were critical of me, but they were prepared to discuss it. They were prepared to have a dialogue. Here, the people that I’m objecting to want to stop the dialogue. They don’t want to have the conversation. It will upset people at the dinner party or on the porch. This is like safe spaces in colleges. •
