A CNN commentator and Temple University professor made a blatantly anti-Semitic call for the complete destruction of Israel Wednesday during a speech at the United Nations.
He claimed that justice requires a “free Palestine from the river to the sea,” a phrase commonly used by terrorist groups like Hamas, who seek the total elimination of the state of Israel, according to multiple news outlets.
During the event, he called for “solidarity” with Palestinians, explicitly called for the international community to boycott Israel and justified violence against Israel.
“Contrary to western mythology, black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Ghandi and nonviolence,” Hill said. “Rather, slave revolts and self-defense and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom. If we are to operate in true solidarity with the Palestinian people, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility.”
The “range of opportunity and political possibility” to which Hill referred is political doublespeak for all out war.
“If we are in true solidarity, we must allow them the same range of opportunity and political possibility,” he continued. “We must recognize the right of an occupied people to defend themselves. We must prioritize peace, but we must not romanticize or fetishize it. We must promote nonviolence at every opportunity, but cannot endorse narrow politics that shames Palestinians for resisting, for refusing to do nothing in ethnic cleansing.”
Hill is often in the news for boneheaded and outlandish statements.
In July, he said that cop killer Assata Shakur’s book “saved his life.” Big League Politics reported:
A violent leftist CNN commentator praised a cop killer in a recent Instagram post.
“Thinking about Assata Shakur on her 71st birthday,” said Marc Lamont Hill. “She wrote the second book that changed (and saved) my life. She taught me about the value and power of Freedom Dreams. She showed me the beauty of struggle.”
Assata Shakur is an alias for FBI most-wanted terrorist and Black Liberation Army (BLA) member, Joanne Deborah Chesimard. In 1977, Chesimard was convicted of first degree murder, assault and battery of a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to kill, illegal possession of a weapon, and armed robbery. She would later escape from prison when visited by fellow BLA members. She has been off the radar ever since, but may be hiding in Cuba.
“And she proved that ‘a wall is just a wall. and nothing more at all. It can be broken down,’” Hill wrote. “I pray for her continued safety and protection. I continue to work to demonstrate her innocence. And I implore the State to stop prosecuting an unjust and unfair campaign against one of our most treasured Freedom Fighters. Thank you Mama Assata. Wishing you 100 more years!”
Hill has also explicitly endorsed violence against anyone daring enough to don Trump apparel and wander about in public after a teenager was assaulted in a Texas restaurant for wearing a MAGA hat.
