CNN Fires on Air Anti-Semite Commentator.
Jermain Botiso: Marc Lamont Hill is in the news right now. And Marc Lamont Hill, let me tell you, is in deep doo-doo. He got booted off CNN. Thank the Lord. Let me go ahead and clap. And in time, a black leftie that gets kicked off CNN I have to clap on that one. I want to go ahead and play this clip. And I want to get your take on it because I believe that what he's saying is very, very damaging and a lot of people need to hear. So let me go ahead and run it, then we'll definitely discuss it. This hero could serve the nation. Here we go.
News Anchor: CNN cut ties with contributor Marc Lamont Hill following his comments about Israel. Hill, in a Wednesday address at the United Nations, pushed for a boycott of Israel and said:
Marc Lamont Hill: We have an opportunity. To not just offer solidarity in words, but to commit to political action, grassroots action, local action, and international action that will give us what justice requires. And that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.
News Anchor: Mediaite reports the backlash was swift, 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.
Jermain Botiso: So, Barry, he says that Palestine is to be free from the river challenges. And I've heard that type of speech before, and it's not good. What do you think?
Barry Nussbaum: That is actually the slogan of come Hamas. The river is the Jordan River. The sea is the Mediterranean Sea. I've been to the Jordan River. And when you face the Mediterranean, everything looking towards the sea is the state of Israel. So what he's saying is the slogan of Hamas just came out of Mark Hill's mouth at the United Nations yesterday where he was invited. And this is a major journalist from America addressing the world, saying, let's eliminate the Jewish state and replace it with one state of Palestinians who are Arabs. So I guess that means to kill all the Jews. That's what he said. I was very gratified, and I told you this earlier when we spoke that CNN did the right thing. Don't get me wrong this doesn't make me a CNN fan, but sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a nut. In this case, they did the right thing, and they canned him. Why? Because he's talking about mass murder with a smile on his face. The other thing he talked about, which was really horrifying, is rejecting the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, saying violence is necessary. You can't always be peaceful. And that's what needs to be done by the Palestinians. Holy cow. This guy is inciting a religious war, and he's doing it as a Ph.D. as if his scholarship justifies mass murder and literally the elimination of the Jewish people. I'm thrilled that he's off CNN. I'm sad that somebody else is going to give him a place and a microphone. No different than Farrakhan that we've talked about a little earlier tonight.
Jermain Botiso: Oh, yeah. And, you know, in liberalville, even though he got canned from CNN, they are ruined, and check-in and they are happy with his rhetoric. And to me, his rhetoric, in a sense, was too over the top. You know, usually, they're a little bit convert with their rhetoric about hating the Jews and hating Israel. But he was straight on it. He told the truth like we need to get rid of him, you know, and people need to start waking up. Now, one thing I could tell you about Marc Lamont Hill, he follows people like Lewis Farrakhan and Keith Ellison, and you know, that whole crowd. He's into that. And I have a sneaking suspicion here that black folks like Marc Lamont Hill like the idea of getting rid of Israel and the whole Jewish state, and it's because they believe that it ties into Christianity. And if you get rid of Christianity, too, you can also get rid of the white man's religion, because they believe that white Americans in this country here and Israel over there are tied. And once we get rid of them over here, white Americans in this country will no longer have a place to go. The Christians won't have a home place anymore. And by that precept right there, that will allow them to tear down the west. And that's what I think. I think this is all a plan for them to try to tear down the west, and they have to get at Israel and the Jewish state there because the Jewish state stands with America. And Let's be honest, America is keeping the world safe, in a sense, and so is Israel. Because without Israel, it'll be World War three over there.
Barry Nussbaum: Yeah, Israel's on the front line Jermain. They're the ones that get the terrorism first. They're the canary in the coal mine, as I often like to say. And that's why it's our fourth key issue and American truth project. Israel is literally our front line of defense. They work with the United States on intelligence, diplomatically, militarily, and we don't have one Army troop in Israel carrying a weapon to defend the Jewish state. They defend themselves quite well. Unlike every other ally, we seem to have in the world. They're out there on the front lines fighting terror for us. I think that was an interesting comment you made a second ago that I'd like to make a comment on Jermain. You talked about Marc Lamont Hill and Farrakhan. I saw a picture today of the two of them hanging out together like they were best friends. And a comment from Marc Lamont Hill about what a good friend and great man Farrakhan is. Look, you can't cozy up to a hater that called Hitler a great man and not believe in those precepts. If we were alive during World War 2 praising Hitler for his destruction of most of the civilized world, and I'm talking about in Europe, and it would have been the entire world if he had more weapons and more troops, and we praised him, our fellow Americans would beat the crap out of us, and rightfully so. Here is a guy, Lamont Hill, praising a man who obviously, who says Hitler was great and praising Farrakhan for his values and what he believes. Let that sink in. To your viewers, the Palestinians don't have elections. They don't have democracy. They don't have freedom. They don't have equality. They have Sharia. The last election in the Gaza Strip was over ten years ago. There won't be another one. Anyone that wants to run for office gets killed. The last election in the West Bank was in 05. At that time, Mahmoud Abbas was elected, and he's canceled all the elections since then. And people who want to run for office usually end up dead, or they never find the body. That's what these people believe in. Now, how in the world would anybody think that's compatible with America? We don't think like that. We think men and women ought to be equal. We think black, white, green, red, whatever the color ought to be equal. We think everybody ought to have equal rights to vote, to own property, to possess wealth, to travel where they want, to say what they want, that's the Bill of Rights. These are people over there that would put you to death if you shot your mouth out about equal rights or equality or freedom of religion. It's literally the death penalty in certain cases. And Marc Lamont Hill is embracing someone who believes what we just talked about it a few minutes ago. That guy, when he opened up his mouth at the U.N., told you what he's really thinking. I'm shocked that it was that overt. Really shocked, quite frankly.
Jermain Botiso: I just can't understand how the liberal Jewish people can even stand to be Democrats, because any Democrat nowadays it seems like they have to go after the Jewish state. Look at Barack Obama. Remember when The prime minister there, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was in an election, and Barack Obama funneled money to the opposition and tried to take him out. I mean, this is the liberal left in our country. They hate the Jewish state. They will do whatever they can to get rid of them. If they can fund the opposition to get rid of Benjamin Netanyahu and get some other folks in there so that they can get a hold over there so they can break up that state, they will. So it's incumbent on us to stay with the Jewish folks there for us to stand up with Benjamin Netanyahu and support his mission there to keep the people safe and make sure that that country is still there. What do you think about that?
Barry Nussbaum: Well, if I was there with you, I'd give you a hug and a high five. I couldn't say it better myself, truly. It's really sad that the progressive left in this country does not consider our American way, our American system, whether it's our economic system, our value system, capitalism, freedom as the thing that has made this country special and unique since 1776. We have gotten to the point where probably half the country believes that you shouldn't have too much money, you shouldn't have too much freedom. The government ought to tell you what to do, where to go, how to associate with people, how to speak to people, where your money should be spent and on and on. And countries and leaders that stand up for freedom are the ones that are attacked. You're 100 percent right, Jermain. Barack Obama spent government money, U.S. government money fighting against the Likud Party, and Netanyahu in the last election. And it was very public, and it came out, and it was obvious. And he literally didn't apologize for it. And when Netanyahu was invited to come addressed the joint sessions of Congress, normally the president of the United States is there. Obama wouldn't show up and pulled his whole staff out. Secretary of state, defense ministers, everybody has a show of disrespect to show Netanyahu. Well, you can come to the country, and Congress may like you, but I sure don't. There were all these stories, Jermain of when he would summon Netanyahu to the White House as an official meeting and keep him waiting out in the hall for 45 minutes or an hour. That doesn't happen to any of the world leaders. Obama treated him like the poor stepchild and abused him emotionally and politically for eight years. Israel is ecstatic that there's been a change in governance in the United States. And ever since, obviously, Trump made the monumental decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel's capital, where it's been the capital of the Jewish people for 3000 plus years, they think he's the best thing that ever happened to Israel. Donald Trump actually might be that because he's showing friendship to a true ally who believes in the same values that we do. And quite frankly, there aren't a lot of countries around the world, Jermain, that think the way we should be thinking.
Jermain Botiso: Yeah, you're absolutely right. And it's a shame. It's an absolute shame that we don't have that many people and then many countries who think like us at all. And one thing I can tell you, it makes the world a lot more dangerous knowing that fact.
