Temple U hides behind Constitution to defend anti-Semitic Marc Lamont Hill



By: Lynne Lechter and Robert Sklaroff
December 6, 2018

Days ago, Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN TV commentator and rock star celebrity professor at Temple University, called for the total destruction of Israel during an address he delivered to the United Nations.  In solidarity with Palestinians, he exclaimed that Palestinians should be "free from the river to the sea."  This is not a covert dog whistle or code.  Rather, it is an overt exhortation to annihilate Israel, as Israel exists from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

His words were ugly and chilling.  More chilling was Hill's confidence that such violent hate speech could be spewed openly and fearlessly before a global audience, unaware or uncaring of subsequent retaliation.  Thomas Lifson first alerted us to this incident on November 30. 

CNN, without explanation, immediately terminated Hill's contract.  Temple University did not.  Instead, the university trotted out the hackneyed coward's defense that while it does not share Hill's views, it supports his constitutional free speech right to say whatever he pleases.

Some opponents, desiring Hill's tenure at Temple ended, raised the issue of hate speech. Hill's remarks were surely hate speech, but hate speech alone is not unconstitutional.  The legal exceptions to the right of free speech that accurately apply are fighting words, true threat, defamation (libel and slander), and incitement to imminent lawless action.  Hill's words, dramatically presented at a "Free Palestine Day," clearly exemplified all of these exceptions.

How did we arrive at this ugly situation? Anti-Jewish sentiment, a historical hatred in large parts of the globe, was mostly muted in the United States.  After the 1948 creation of the State of Israel (the only Jewish country in the world), Arab countries lost their military war against the fledgling state.

Subsequently, they waged a propaganda battle, falsely comparing Israel to Apartheid South Africa in the former's treatment of Palestinians living within its borders.  The American left embraced the fallacy and facilitated its success. From this malevolent platform, Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction of Israel, commonly known as BDS, was launched in Ramallah around 2005.  Its stated goal is to isolate and pressure Israel; its unpublicized goal is Israel's destruction.

Fueled with Arab petrodollars, Middle East studies departments were established in colleges and universities throughout the United States.  BDS student organizations followed.  Aligned with the plethora of progressive professors on campus, the debate inexorably became one-sided.  Today, Jewish students fight for positions on student organizations, for letters of recommendation, and for bringing conservative speakers on campus who support their views.

No Demos, .. not at all. Would YOU like it if somebody was saying horrible, offensive, and false things ABOUT you?

Free speech is fine, .. but, what about the things said when they are f-ing lies!

Think about it!   Wink

The DIRTY Leftists want the FREE SPEECH, but, they do NOT give a shit about the truth.  Angry

Sounds to me that YOU too are perfectly fine with BASHING ISRAEL, too! -- The filthy left taught you well, eh?   Cool

I would either say something back or just not respond. Depends on how much I really care.

Then counter it with the truth. Or is that too difficult, so we have to punish people for what they say in order to shut them, and those who share their views, up?

Temple is a public university, so I suppose anti-semite remarks are protected under the Constitution.

If this were a private school, that school would be within its rights to fire the guy.

He'll pay some big consequences for his hatred of Israel, though.

This would be amusing if it weren't so sad.

Look at this quote:

Palestinians should be "free from the river to the sea."

This is how a so-called "conservative" describes it:

"ugly and chilling"
"violent hate speech"
"surely hate speech"
"fighting words"
"true threat"
"defamation (libel and slander)" (My personal favorite!)
"incitement to imminent lawless action"

What complete and utter nonsense.

Placing the PC card is not the path to conservatism.

Calling what this guy said illegal is nonsense and should be treated as such.

It is well know, well documented, and easily seen that leftists/marxists are bigots against Jews.

Much ado about no surprise.

From the Philly Inquirer:

Quote:
Hill’s recent U.N. speech, which was praised by white supremacist David Duke, is only the latest in his series of hateful comments about Jewish people.

Hill’s record on this matter is frightening. Some examples:

On national television in 2014, Hill complained that the anti-missile defense system, the Iron Dome, “takes away Hamas’ military leverage” over Israel. Hamas is on the U.S. list of terrorist groups. Hill’s position would leave innocent Israeli civilians unprotected from Hamas’ rocket barrages.

In a 2014 debate with Alan Dershowitz, Hill justified terrorism and murdering Jews, saying: “Everything that Hamas is doing, everything that the Palestinian people are fighting for, is from a posture of resistance to occupation.”

In 2015, Hill defended Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine leader Rasmea Odeh, who was convicted of murdering two Jewish students in a Jerusalem bombing, in an op-ed for the Huffington Post titled, “Why Every Black Activist Should Stand With Rasmea Odeh." Hill called Odeh a “Palestinian freedom fighter being railroaded for her commitment to justice.”

That same year, in a Palestine Solidarity “revolutionary struggle” video filmed inside pre-1967 Israel, Hill declared while standing in Israel that we’re here in “Palestine,” which “has been stolen by greed and destroyed by hate,” and falsely accused Israel of writing laws “in the blood of the innocent.” Hill also endorsed “revolutionary struggle,” “resistance,” and “fighting” against the Israeli “occupation” of “Palestine.”

In May 2017, Hill tweeted: “Trump’s position on Israel/Palestine is repugnant. His call for Palestine to 'reject hatred and terrorism’ is offensive & counterproductive.”

In a 2018 op-ed for the Huffington Post, Hill asserted that the statement “Israel has the right to exist” is merely “Israeli propaganda.” Hill also portrayed the Jewish people’s entire eternal homeland as “stolen land,” and opposed any deal that would leave any of Israel in existence.
