Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: AOC, 'Squad,' Terrifying Moderates in Democratic Party

("American Agenda"/Newsmax TV)

Legal expert Alan Dershowitz says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York ( AOC) is “terrifying” moderates in the Democratic Party and she and her “Squad” are the reason Democrats have lost so many seats in the House of Representatives.

“She’s also responsible for a lot of lost votes for (Joe) Biden,” Dershowitz said Wednesday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda.”

The Squad is the informal name for a group of four women elected in the 2018 House, made up of Reps. Ocasio-Cortez , Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, also said he considered Biden running mate Kamala Harris a moderate.

“You generally pick somebody who’s not quite like you,” he said. “I think Harris is more on the left than Joe Biden, but I think she’s still within the mainstream moderate wing – she’s supportive of Israel, for example. That’s become a litmus test for radicalism. If you’re a progressive radical, you have to hate Israel.  You have to hate free speech and due process. She’s not there.”

GovTrack, a nonpartisan organization that tracks bills in Congress, in 2019 ranked Harris as the most “liberal compared to all Senators.”

Many critics quickly labeled her as far left after Biden picked her as his running mate.
