[Ed. – A fuller examination of his rant is here.  Marc Lamont Hill previously suggested that people behead others for “all sorts of reasons.” His exculpatory tolerance appears to be somewhat one-sided.  He also proclaimed, among other edicts, that black Trump supporters are “mediocre Negroes.”]

CNN severed ties with contributor Marc Lamont Hill on Thursday, following comments the university professor made about Israel and Palestine in a speech at the United Nations.

“Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite.

Hill urged countries to boycott Israel in a speech on Wednesday, calling for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea.” His comments sparked an immediate backlash, with many noting “from the river to the sea” is a phrase used by Hamas and other anti-Israel terror groups. The phrase implies the replacement of Israel by a Palestine stretching from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea — though Hill disputes this characterization of his comments.
