Prof. Marc Lamont Hill: Goal of Black Lives Matter is to “dismantle the Zionist project”

Prof. Marc Lamont Hill: Goal of Black Lives Matter is to “dismantle the Zionist project”

At least he is honest about the goal.

Professor Marc Lamont Hill is an influential and high-profile leader of two movements: The Black Lives Matter movement and the anti-Israel movement. The “intersectional” hijacking and crossover of domestic movements in the anti-Israel cause is something we have covered for years.

Lamont Hill just admitted what we all knew, but some people deny: one of the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement is the destruction of Israel. In a Zoom panel event on February 6, 2021, organized by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)’s “BDS and Palestine Solidarity National Working Group, National Political Education Committee, DSA Muslim Caucus, and the Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus,” the panel featured Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill alongside fellow Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) supporters Omar Barghouti, Sumaya Awad, and Ajamu Amiri Dillahunt.

Each of the panelists have a long history of anti-Israel organizing. Omar Barghouti has been a professional BDSer since the early 2000s (although he often ignores the BDS dictates he commands others to follow); Ajamu Amiri Dillahunt was an activist with Durham2Palestine—a local North Carolina network that invoked the “Deadly Exchange” (a conspiracy theory that blames Israel and American Jewish groups for police shootings of Blacks in the U.S.); and as a high-ranking official at Adalah Justice Project, Sumaya Awad has helped promote the organization’s bizarre claim that Zionism is “underpinned by anti-Blackness“.

Panel frontrunner Marc Lamont Hill is just as virulent an anti-Israel polemicist as his co-speakers. He is perhaps best known in pro-Israel circles for his repetition of the popular Hamas slogan (“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”) during a speech at the United Nations in 2018.

[A screenshot of the bios of each panelist, published as the caption for the full panel, posted on YouTube.]

Hill’s anti-Zionist leanings date at least from early 2009, when he first began publishing on social media in support of BDS and sharing articles from anti-Israel agitprop sites such as Mondoweiss.

Meanwhile, since its birth in 2013, Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement founders and prominent leaders have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship with the international anti-Israel movement; indeed, anti-Israel agitators played an active role in stoking the 2014 violence in Ferguson, and have continued to hijack progressive causes by blaming racial tensions on Israel—even till today.

Marc Lamont Hill—as a BLM icon—has long embraced the ‘intersectional’ view that Israel’s “occupation of Palestine” has been engineered and perpetuated by the same “white supremacist” cabal that oppresses Blacks in the United States. In 2015, Hill traveled to “Palestine” on a “solidarity” mission with other BLM leaders who share this perspective. We documented the trip, which was organized by the self-described “socialist” group Dream Defenders—and included BLM co-founder and self-proclaimed “Marxist” Patrisse Cullors.

So it’s no surprise that Hill wasted little time during the DSA Zoom panel in repeating these themes; on a “conceptual level”, he insisted,

We understand that we can’t dismantle white supremacy or imperialism section by section…There’s no way to stop a settler-colonial movement in Palestine and not be mindful of its relationship to, you know, a settler colonial project in New Zealand or Australia or the United States…[it’s] a global system that we have to dismantle…[Black Lives Matter has] imagined…a world [that is] anti-imperialist. They don’t want to just nation-build, but they want to world-make, and so Black Lives Matter, very explicitly is talking about the dismantling of the Zionist project, dismantling of the settler-colonialist project, and very explicitly embracing BDS on those grounds.

You can see the entire panel here or below.

Naturally, Hill presented no evidence of the supposed interconnectedness of centuries-old European colonization of the New World with Zionism—the modern Jewish liberation movement centered around the ancient Jewish connection to Jerusalem (or, as it was called as early as the biblical book of Samuel, Zion)—because no such evidence exists.

But when it comes to Israel, hard facts clearly matter little to Hill, his DSA “comrades” (his words), or BLM leadership; after all, why complicate a compelling narrative and successful recruitment tool with a scrupulous examination of history?

For anti-Israel activists, building a “broad” movement requires social justice idealists from multiple and diverse backgrounds. And how better to collect them all than to draw vague analogies between disparate eras, moralize relentlessly, and deliberately muddy conversation about Jews and Israel with “conceptual” bluster posing as practical and just “political solution[s]”?

Ah, ‘intersectional’ ignorance must be bliss.

Leftist Anti-Semitism is always propaganda, there are no crimes or wayward actions Israel has done.

Hill has gone over.

Anti-Semitic, racist jackass. Will he ever be canceled? Nope. His POV is welcome on campus.

Reparations is on his list also, probably near the top. And Biden’s successor, Harris, will gladly approve it.

    alaskabob in reply to UserP. | February 17, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Borrowing from HR 127 which says to retain possession of any firearm one must have the original sales slip…. reparations are fine. Just show the sales slip for purchase of one’s slave ancestor and get that 40 acres and the mule to share with all other offspring.

    FOTin1943 in reply to UserP. | February 19, 2021 at 11:48 am

    she said so very clearly on some radio broadcast. I wonder if she is in favor of extending $$$ “reparations” to the offspring of a man from Jamaica????

Yes, yes! Talk about that, Marc! Talk about it some more, lots and lots and lots!

    The Mossad is paralyzed by a leftist legal establishment that has veto power over everything it does. But more than that, the Mossad has never taken action against someone merely for exercising their freedom of speech, or even for a lot worse than that.

Black anti-Semitism has a long history in this country. Probably mostly envy. My Ethiopian dental hygienist, who grew up in Israel after her 1984 rescue, has talked about American blacks with me.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Michael K. | February 18, 2021 at 7:24 am

    I have never understood why so many in the civil rights movement were Jewish. This outright hatred of Jews has existed for decades, and did well before the 1950s and 1960s. Goodman and Schwerner were wasting their time and it cost them their lives.

    Then again, why are Jews so heavily involved in the gun confiscation movement?

    For an intelligent people, they aren’t very smart.

      There are different kinds of stupid. It was Orwell who said that some things are so absurd only an intellectual could believe them.

        The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Milhouse. | February 18, 2021 at 3:22 pm

        Milhouse: I have kept in contact with some of the folks with whom I attended high school. The one I attended was virtually all Jewish. You brought a note to the attendance office if you WERE going to attend on high holy days!

        Two of them a brilliant people, renowned in their fields. Yet, when it comes to everyday things like arranging moving the household goods from a small 2-br apartment to a new home 30 miles away, they haven’t a clue what to do. One blamed his very bad loss (Malibu fire) on his insurance agent, rather than having ever called his agent over the DECADES to make sure his coverage met with current values.

        As I said in my other comment: intelligent without question, but virtual “ree-tards” at everyday smarts.

      Just wishful thinking. As in I’ll support you and be nice to you … and “trust” you will do the same. Dream on!~!

    rebelgirl in reply to Michael K. | February 19, 2021 at 8:40 am

    This is so true! Growing up Jewish in the Chicago suburbs, I found one of two reactions from most blacks..either they totally embraced Jews because they understood the truth about Jesus’ heritage or they completely resented Jews because they felt that there was some sort of ‘Favored Minority’ status that Jews held.

He’s a conspiracy theorist. But he’s also a Marxist. So his nutty conspiracy theories are taken seriously by all lefties and Dems.

Of course, Marxism itself is a conspiracy theory.

    He’s an ignorant, infantile schmuck. It’s not complicated.

    mark311 in reply to JHogan. | February 18, 2021 at 3:46 pm

    Marxism is not a conspiracy theory. Haha that’s a great odd way of categorising a socio-economic theory. It has some elements that are pretty true particularly with it’s analysis of capitalism for example Marx predicted the boom and bust nature of capitalism, predicted products like the iphone (essentially a product with arbitrary value as in it’s shiny bit fundamentally similar to many other phones), and globalisation. Where it went wrong is how to resolve those issues as well as the inevitability of communism( well that’s true so far)

      Evil Otto in reply to mark311. | February 19, 2021 at 6:02 am

      What a shock, Mark is defending Marx. No, Marx didn’t predict products like the iPhone in any way, shape, or form.

      “Where it went wrong is how to resolve those issues as well as the inevitability of communism( well that’s true so far)”

      Well, that, and the hundred million corpses attempts at implementation created.

      henrybowman in reply to mark311. | February 19, 2021 at 5:14 pm

      What an incredibly moronic statement. The iPhone was a revolutionary device. There was nothing like it at the time, absolutely nothing. The reason it is similar to so many other phones today is that all of the other phones copied it.

      https://money.cnn.com/gallery/technology/2012/08/02/samsung-apple-phones/index.html

Papered and pampered.

I, for one, am very tired of these ignorant, racist, barbarians hiding behind my culture’s freedom and civilization and working their evil. Time to cull the herd.

Is this the same guy who used to show up O’Reilly’s show? Rapid fire talker. I always had the impression that he learned to throw around big words but didn’t really know what they meant. But he was a checked box.
And if is indeed the same guy-and I think it is-he gained a lot of weight.

And here I naively thought it was just about free sneakers and TVs.

This moron is Kamla Harris – but with a brain and more lovabilty.

Hate to say it, but Pelosi will be president within a year. (The slutty and corrupt Harris will be forced to resign before Biden either dies, or is too addled to speak intelligently.)

Martial law will then govern our land. Those thousands of troops on the streets of D.C. and razor-wire fences throughout the city are a warm-up.

There are only two solutions: first is to move aggresively on Pelosi’s history of corruption; second is secession (might as well fight before troops are surrounding you).

Forget the GOP in this fight: they’ll be joining the left.

Pelosi and her family’s corruption:
https://www.yippy.com/search?query=pelosi+corruption

Remember when Pelosi got real defensive when asked about her wealth at a presser? I also remember her billing feds $80k for booze and food on govt flights. She’s a greedy goody grabber. When DJT cancelled her defense department flight while she and her entourage were on their way to the airport that was when it really started between them. Before that DJT had the gall to invite cameras into the Oval Office.
She’s a deceitful, disgusting, deranged old past her prime hag and needs to retire to her ice cream.

    Milhouse in reply to JimWoo. | February 18, 2021 at 10:33 am

    I also remember her billing feds $80k for booze and food on govt flights.

    I remember the reports making this claim too, but they turned out to be not quite accurate. The claim was for official congressional delegations, whose expenses are chargeable to the air force while they’re in the USA and to the state department when they’re not. The cost per delegate averaged out to about $300, which is about the same as it was before she became speaker. That includes not just food and drink but all travel expenses that are not directly included in the cost of running the plane, such as baggage fees, ground transportation, lodging, renting meeting rooms, etc. It does not include any expenses for delegates’ spouses who might travel with them, which they must pay for themselves.

    Factcheck.org is of course no more reliable than you would expect, but also no less reliable, and these numbers do seem to be valid and make sense.

Some, Select Black Lives Matter is anti-Jew? Who knew.

#BabyLivesMatter(BLM)

Hill is an inarticulate, dim witted dunce, who THINKS he is intelligent and accomplished. In reality, he’s a moron.

Scratch a commie find an unhinged, conspiracy loving anti-Semite. There is never anything new under the sun.

As a Temple alum, I condemn its inane and wretched support of Hill’s tenure and status there. The Trustees know their argument is as untenable as Hill’s perverse, demagogic fetish with hate, bigotry, and ignorance — known in this case as anti-Semitism.

Talk about incitement to violence.

The university must draw the line here and disengage from its SJW/CRT/BLM pandering, practically impossible as it appears to be, and despite its storied and noble mission and social record of achievement and academic leadership. Hill has declared his War Against the Jews.

As Hill is so intent and uncivil, so, then, is Temple in its express, if mealy-mouthed pass of his terribly harmful speech.

The time is up for Hill to moderate, if not cease and desist outright, his vile, oral flow — to quit masquerading and fronting such Farrakhanian aim and fantasy as serious, academically grounded material in the service of humanity.

I believe Temple needs to separate from, after academically dismissing its socially divisive and inciteful professor if he won’t abandon the anti-Semitic, major-corporation-okaying/BLM-affiliated stumping. Otherwise, Temple will credibly lose its luster as a distinguished center of higher education and values. It will stand for the destruction and abolition of what’s left of any unifying, pacific, MLK-inspired civil discourse as a sociopolitical remedy against the encroaching advent of a new Dark Age of Unreason and Civil Strife.

In sum, protecting the bigotry that Hill kindles and spews forth from various podia in his lieutenancy to annihilate the Jewish people’s home-nation is nothing to advance and everything to condemn if you’re a serious, civil, bona-fide institution of higher learning.

Therefore, Temple’s Trustees should and can do better in this matter for so many concerned if it still rests on and believes in the worth of finding Acres of Diamonds.

And yet for all his anti-semitic hate speech he’s still allowed to post on Twitter. Guess Dorsey doesn’t have a problem with anti-semites and anti-semitic hate speech.

Remember him on Fox where he called the Southern whites who rejected ObamaCare racist because they were alive during the Jim Crow era.

Qatar is throwing money at this man. He has been a guest as per his Twitter photos.

Al Jazeera pushes this man. Do his name search on YT Al Jazeera. They love him.

Hill was groomed long-time by this guy https://canarymission.org/individual/Ahmad_Abuznaid

US Marxist Blacks have a love relationship with Antisemitism. Angela Davies, whom Hill admires, was a guest of Erich Honecker in East Berlin. Davies was all over Arafat with admiration and inspiration.

Hill also appears to go to lengths to conflate some Black Arabs with US civil rights. He has even made a video about this topic.

This is actually quite ironic since blacks and Jews have been allied since Reconstruction. There have been exceptions, such as when Jews tried to lay the blame for the Mary Phagan death on the black janitor after her Jewish boss was charged with the crime (and later lynched.) The Antidefamation League was formed in response to Leo Frank’s prosecution. The Southern Poverty Law Center is made up almost entirely of Jewish lawyers with a few blacks thrown in for effect. This is a case of biting the hand that feeds you.

This article is a thinly disguised ad for Hill’s books, gigs on panels, etc. Why on earth does Mandeles describe him as “one of the leading intellectual voices” and as a journalist? INTELLECTUAL? JOURNALIST? Methinks only his fellow anti-Semites and other racist supporters of SOME bLM SOMETIME bestow “awards” on him. Shame on Temple!!

    Hi FOT1943, thank you kindly for reading! In answer to your question: I did not write the language that you reference in your comment; I do not describe Hill as a “leading intellectual”, nor do I seek to promote his work. Please note that this language comes from my screenshot of the DSA’s description of Hill’s event, as posted by the DSA on YouTube; please also note the caption under the screenshot, which indicates its origin.
    Warmly,
    SRM

Hill’s just in it for the chicks.

This so called Professor is great news for BDS and Zionism. As long as Israel’s enemies busy themselves with useless endeavors, Israel and Zionism are safe. Nothing like watching a defeated movement dig themselves an even deeper hole.

michaelharris99 | February 21, 2021 at 10:53 pm

He is a bright man. Back in the day when FoxNews was relevant and not a cheerleader for Trump, Bill O’Reilly used to adroitly expose him as a hater
