On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Professor Alan Dershowitz discussed how cancelling comedians could be in a factor in the declining ratings of the Oscars, why baseball should have kept the All-Star Game in Georgia, and his new book, The Case Against the New Censorship: Protecting Free Speech from Big Tech, Progressives, and Universities.
“Everybody’s afraid to tell a joke. You tell a joke, you’re going to be canceled. Comedians won’t speak at universities, won’t perform at universities today. Comedy is supposed to provoke. It’s supposed to be the politically incorrect. But not on a university campus today, they don’t have a sense of humor.”
“I don’t think they should have relocated the All-Star Game. I think baseball should stay out of politics. And I think businesses like Home Depot should stay out of politics. Now they’re getting threatened with boycotts because they won’t take a position on the law. And in Georgia, I don’t blame them. They have a fiduciary obligation to their stockholders, their employees, their customers, not to the not to the Democratic Party.”
