Temple University Stands By Marc Lamont Hill After CNN Fires Him


Marc Lamont Hill was dropped as a pundit by CNN Thursday after he made comments about boycotting Israel and calling for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea.”

The phrase “from the river to the sea” is a catchphrase used by Palestinian terrorists who call for the annihilation of Israel.

It’s really no surprise that academia would support him. Update to this story.

Trending: UNC-Chapel Hill ‘Teachers’ Don’t Care About Students, Withholding Grades to Push Political Agenda

Fox News:

At least one person is somehow too polarizing for cable news, but apparently just fine for academia.

Temple University stood by Marc Lamont Hill on Thursday, the same day he was fired from CNN after he gave a speech at the United Nations in which he used language critics described as a dog whistle advocating the elimination of Israel.

Hill, a now-former CNN commentator, is also a professor of media studies and urban education at Temple University in Philadelphia. While the school doesn’t necessarily agree with Hill’s controversial rhetoric, it feels he has the right to speak freely.

“Marc Lamont Hill has been quoted extensively over the last 24 hours. Marc Lamont Hill does not represent Temple University and his views are his own. However, we acknowledge that he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen,” a Temple spokesperson told Fox News.

Hill had come under criticism for his remarks during a Wednesday meeting of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People in observance of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. He accused the Israeli government of “normalizing settler colonialism” and called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea,” a remark that got applause from participating diplomats.

At one point, Hill poured himself some water and told participants that he just got off a flight from “Palestine” and that “I was boycotting the Israeli water so I was unable to quench my thirst.” More

What this clown said was despicable and he was fired from CNN and should have been fired from Temple University too. 

Temple University failed to express any concern regarding Marc Lamont Hill’s violence-inciting speech. They issued a statement defending Mr. Hill, a professor of media studies and urban education at the Philadelphia college.
