Marc Lamont Hill
On Monday's CNN Tonight, Buck Sexton of The Blaze exposed the left's special treatment of the Islamic faith, after liberal commentator Marc Lamont Hill attacked Bill Maher for his views on Islam. Hill claimed that "Islam is premised on some very basic fundamental values that are in line with what America articulates as its own value." Sexton countered by underlining that a "large portion" of Muslims subscribe to "ideas that, under normal circumstances, would be considered bigoted by American liberals."
Appearing as a guest during the 5:00 p.m. hour of CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow on Sunday, liberal CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill declared that "the greatest lie in American history is the myth of the self-made person" as he answered a question about why GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is so popular with white Republicans.
Marc Lamont Hill doubled down on his theory about supposed white supremacy shaping police encounters with black people. During a segment on Wednesday's CNN Tonight, Hill disputed the Supreme Court's decades-old "objectively reasonable" standard on the use of police force, and emphasized that "everyday citizens have biases....oftentimes, we are shaped by white supremacy. We are shaped by fear of black bodies. So, just because a jury of people have (sic) the same irrational white supremacist fear of black people doesn't mean that it's okay to shoot them."
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's CNN Tonight, liberal CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill declared that police officers have a "white supremacist anxiety about black bodies that makes everybody seem like a threat" as he and CNN law enforcement analyst Harry Houck had their latest debate about police interaction with black criminal suspects.
On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, during a discussion of the Democratic presidential debate, liberal CNN political analyst Marc Lamont Hill defended Bernie Sanders' socialist views and griped about Hillary Clinton apparently taking a jab at the Vermont Senator as the CNN analyst complained that "she's playing to people's insecurities and fears," and "play[ing] to the cheap seats."
On Monday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon spotlighted the online "rant" of a grandmother who attacked the "Black Lives Matter" movement. In her video, Peggy Hubbard criticized the lack of outrage in her community over Jamyla Bolden, a nine year old child who was killed near Ferguson, Missouri: "Her life mattered; her dreams mattered; her vision mattered. She could have been the next secretary of state. She could have been the next attorney general. She never got a chance." Lemon interviewed Hubbard, who later later blasted the left-wing concept of "white privilege."
Appearing as a guest on Friday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, liberal CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill slammed GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson as having "racial amnesia and racial blindness" for not taking a left-wing, divisive view on race in Thursday night's Republican debate, as Hill accused the Republican base of being "race deniers."
The CNN commentator also sounded like he may have been hinting that Republicans "hate" black Americans as he bizarrely charged that GOPers "hate certain people and love" Dr. Carson.
Appearing on CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow on Sunday evening, liberal CNN contributor and Morehouse College Professor Marc Lamont Hill asserted that it was "stupid" for former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley to declare that "All lives matter" during a far left Netroots Nation event over the weekend.
Hill went on to compare the Maryland Democrat's comments to declaring that "all houses matter" when there is only one house on fire that needs immediate attention.
On Friday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of revelations that Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal is a white woman who has spent years pretending to be black, liberal CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill oddly asserted that her actions constitute "the ultimate exercise in white privilege."
Ironically, after enumerating several reasons why blacks may want to pretend to be white for gain instead of the reverse, Hill ended up fretting that Dolzal may have deprived the university that hired her of being able to discriminate against her for being white if they wanted to hire an actual African-American to teach African-American studies.
On the June 8 edition of CNN Newsroom, host Carol Costello was skeptical of Scott Walker’s support for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. Costello seemed bewildered that Republicans like Walker could take such a stand given the increasing popularity of same-sex marriage. She asked Republican strategist Ron Christie to weigh in on the likely presidential candidate’s position:
Every once in a while Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show will break up the yawn fest and feature guests who say ridiculous things, and we get to laugh at them for it.
On Tuesday night, Wilmore’s roundtable discussion involved bashing Fox News for reporting that police officers in Baltimore had cited the community's hostility towards them has stopped them from being able to do their job, as the reason for increased crime in the city. On the panel was Huffington Post’s Marc Lamont Hill, comedian Godfrey, and Ebony senior digital editor Jamilah Lemieux.
