Dershowitz Describes Martha’s Vineyard Shunning: Woman Threatened to ‘Stab Me Through the Heart’

Harvard lawyer and self-described Martha’s Vineyard outcast Alan Dershowitz detailed his shunning at the vacation spot in an interview Thursday, claiming a woman said she wanted to kill him.

“At a party this week at Martha’s Vineyard [she] said, ‘if Dershowitz were here tonight, I would stab him through the heart,'” he told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “This is a Martha’s Vineyard woman saying she would stab me through the heart.”

Dershowitz also accused MIT Professor Nicholas Negroponte of heading up the effort to leave him friendless over his defense of President Donald Trump, claiming it wasn’t working anyway.

“He’s leading the campaign to try to get other people to shun me in every way, and not to engage with me,” Dershowitz said. “Now they’re losing because the vast majority of people even in Martha’s Vineyard…can’t stand people who try to stop speech and try to stop debate, so it’s backfiring.”

Dershowitz was convinced that the vineyard snubs were only working to the president’s advantage, even though he’s received the scorn of liberals.

“They are strengthening Donald Trump’s hands. The people who try to shun me are giving Donald Trump and his base an argument about what the radicals are doing.”

Despite the collective shunning, Dershowitz apparently still gets invited to things.

“I don’t care about parties,” he told Carlson. “I am invited to too many.”
