I have already posted how Temple University professor and former CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill, who has endorsed violent resistance against Israel and called for a "free Palestine from the river to the sea," seems to be an antisemite, despite his denials. But if there was still any doubt, there shouldn't be anymore.
You see, he just couldn't keep his big mouth shut.
Former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill claimed that news outlets like NBC and ABC were "Zionist organizations" that produced "Zionist content," during a panel on Friday at the annual Netroots Nation summit held by progressive activists in Philadelphia.
The summit describes itself as "the largest annual conference for progressives" and has long been a stop for Democratic presidential hopefuls, including this year.
Hill's comments came less than a year after he lost his CNN perch after calling for a "free Palestine from the river to the sea," during an appearance at the U.N. The statement was interpreted by many as a call for the elimination of Israel, something Hill denied.
He made his comments during a panel on "embedding Palestinian rights in the 2020 agenda," which also featured statements that Israel was engaged in a "white supremacist" project.
In response to a question from the audience, Hill described the choices faced by young journalists when they tell stories about Palestinians.
"They're like, I want to work for Fox, or I want to work for ABC or NBC or whoever. I want to tell these stories," he said. "You have to make choices about where you want to work. And if you work for a Zionist organization, you're going to get Zionist content. And no matter how vigorous you are in the newsroom, there are going to be two, three, four, 17, or maybe one powerful person — not going to suggest a conspiracy — all news outlets have a point of a view. And if your point of view competes with the point of view of the institution, you're going to have challenges."
Hill has taken to Twitter to deny this is what he said.
Unfortunately for Hill, there's video. And it shows him to be full of bovine excrement.
Note how when he says he is "not going to suggest a conspiracy" there is laughter from the audience, which seems like a "nudge nudge, say no more" moment – as if the audience is in on the joke that he has to say that to avoid getting into trouble.
And Hill is entirely aware he could get in trouble when he lets down his guard.
So my message to him is to quit with the lying and embrace his Jew hatred. Because his lame excuses just don't hold water.
