Professor emeritus at Harvard Law called out Marc Lamont Hill’s remarks — now CNN fired him
Speaking Thursday morning on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Harvard Law school professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz was blunt about CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill’s remarks in a speech at the U.N. on Wednesday, in which Hill essentially called for Israel’s elimination as a sovereign entity.
“[He] is an absolute bigot, anti-Semite, un-American, anti-American. He’s just a despicable human being who has now gone beyond the point of acceptability for any network in the United States,” said Dershowitz (shown above left).
Dershowitz, a Jewish man, has debated Hill (above right) previously on CNN.
On Thursday afternoon, CNN severed ties with Hill following his reprehensible remarks, according to Mediaite.

“He [Hill] has advocated the killing of Jews. He has advocated violence,” said Dershowitz early on Thursday, before the news broke about the firing.
“He has said it is OK for Palestinians to blow up pizza parlors, to blow up buses, to kill mothers and children, and he has also said that the only nation-state of the Jewish people should no longer be allowed to survive.”
“There’s no way that he should be allowed to be a commentator on any kind of network,” Dershowitz also declared, calling Hill “the David Duke of the hard-Left on anti-Israel groups.”
“The greatest dangers of anti-Semitism today, because they involve the future, are what’s going on on college campuses from the hard, hard, hard-Left,” Dershowitz said.
“[Hill] should be the poster child for increasing anti-Semitism among college and university students and violence against Jewish students.” Dershowitz added that he personally needs armed guards to protect himself when he visits college campuses.
“He’s advocating violence against people like me and like you and against other people who believe in Israel’s right to exist and thrive as the nation-state of the Jewish people,” he said to Ingraham.
Hill was listed earlier as a political commentator on the network’s site.
Dershowitz also commented Thursday morning on Michael Cohen’s surprise appearance in a federal courtroom in Manhattan, during which Trump’s former attorney pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress concerning the Russia probe.
