Rule of Law? Rights of the accused? Not for people they don’t like! So what other conclusion can you draw? When Did the Left Stop Believing in the Right to Counsel?.
In a shocking development, the school announced last weekend that their first African-American faculty deans would be terminated. Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. and his wife, Stephanie Robinson, may continue to teach at Harvard Law. But they lost their jobs as deans because of their decision to join the defense team of former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who faces charges of sexual misconduct.
Weinstein is guilty with no presumption of innocence. Why bother with a trial?
The whole “guilt by association” thing, so popular in places like the old Soviet Union, and East Germany, is apparently a thing as well. Or is this more like the McCarthy blacklist? Do something the Left doesn’t like and you will be severely punished.
If you click thru to the article, you will be treated to a history lesson on The Boston Massacre, John Adams and Crispus Attucks, and the right of the accused to have counsel. I’m always in favor of history lessons. (History. Ignorance. Rinse. Repeat.)
