Marc Lamont Hill has been a panelist on CNN for a while but he’s now been dropped like a rock after his atrocious comments against Israel at the United Nations.
Hill delivered an impassioned speech at the UN defending the right of Palestine to exist and then slammed Israel (video below).
He set off a firestorm after video of his comments hit social media.
He tried to redeem himself with a tweet saying he meant no harm:
In my speech, I talked about the need to return to the pre-1967 borders, to give full rights to Palestinian citizens of Israel, and to allow right of return. No part of this is a call to destroy Israel. It’s absurd on its face.

One big reason people don’t believe Hill’s remorse is his connection to Farrakhan:
MARC LAMONT HILL AT THE UN: PRO-PALESTINE PEOPLE THINK THIS ANTI-SEMITIC GUY IS GREAT…Maybe it’s the Hamas lingo he uses to call for the destruction of Israel…
CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill echoed Jihadist calls for Israel’s violent annihilation, calling for “resistance” to achieve “a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”
CNN's Marc Lamont Hill appears to call for violence against Israel and for the elimination of Israel, says, "Justice requires a free Palestine from the river to the sea."
The phrase "from the river to the sea" is a phrase used by those who believe Israel should be eliminated. pic.twitter.com/26TL205Ylb
