Let him be clear: Marc Lamont Hill explains ‘misunderstood’ comment about ‘exciting’ Dorner manhunt

As Twitchy reported, Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill appeared on CNN yesterday to lend his take on the then-ongoing Christopher Dorner manhunt, which he said was “like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life. It’s kind of exciting!” Hill appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight to clarify his remarks, but did he use his appearance on Fox News to remove his foot from his mouth or insert the other one?

See for yourself:

He’s not defending Dorner in any way, you see, but it would be “irresponsible” not to use this crisis as a launching point for an “important public conversation” on police corruption, which, incidentally, might not have had anything to do with Dorner’s actions. But as CNN’s Don Lemon said, Dorner’s rambling manifesto is “something that we need to talk about.”

We’ll allow that Dr. Hill might be right about one thing. The violence in “Django Unchained” made several moviegoers physically ill, and we’re not feeling so well after watching the ongoing Marc Lamont Hill saga either. It’s kind of sickening.

    Marc Lamont Hill is merely what Liberalism looks and sounds like in the United States of America.

    Marc Lamont Hill believes he did nothing wrong, because in Marc Hill’s mind the Ends Justify the Means. Hill has a lot in common with Christopher Dorner in that regard.

      I wonder if Obama will soon say: ‘Ya know – if I had a son, I imagine that he would look exactly like Chris Dorner.’
      Obama couldn’t wait to say that Treyvon Martin was ‘his son’ too, remember? There’s no one that this corrupt administration wouldn’t hide behind to distract people from their systematic destruction of the economy.

    I never cared for Dr. Hill’s opinions…but I respected him, until his Dorner silliness.
    Following this response I will no longer acknowledge his existence.

      did you have the same reaction when white jack Moore in the same interview said this about Chris Dorner .in someways it resembles a denzel washington movie where someone is wronged and he stands up for himself and it goes down in a blaze of glory?

  • Richard Dean MacLean

    Dorner’s situation had nothing NOTHING to do with race. He used that issue to try and appeal to the public and to elicit sympathy for what he’d done. He didn’t shoot a man for calling him a racial slur. He went through a process and four years later killed the civilian DAUGHTER of the man who represented him in that process. And by the way, he only invoked a claim of racism AFTER he was told that it was believed that he was making false allegations.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Imagine the impact, however, if Dorner didn’t lie. They re-opened the case, after all. The perp that allegedly got kicked in the face, will he be questioned or silenced, you think?

  • V the K

    Technically, he left himself weasel room by saying Dorner was a superhero “to many people.” However, if I were to say, “Kate Upton is hot to many people,” one might reasonably and properly assume I also found her hot.

My initial foray into this site was quite different. I tried to make reasonable arguments from a left-center POV and got absolutely trashed for it. This time I was a dick, and everyone lectured me politely. Weird.

    I’m pretty sure Jack Moore who was in the same interview on CNN with Prof Hill is going to clarify his similar hero/movie analogy statements? Wrong only the black professor needs to explain himself. I’m sure Jack Moore has received lots of tweets from people expressing their outarge over his hero worship of Dorner. Wrong Moore is lacking something Hill has. I’m sure Jack Moore has been accused of giving #teamdorner credibility. No because jack moore isnt being targetted for obviuos reasons I’m sure Jack Moore is having a 2nd twitter war with Katie Pavich? I’m wrong Pavlich never had a 1st war with Jack moore .To use a pool analogy ,focus on the 8 ball,not the cueball.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      It helps if you have a Twitter account, first off. Secondly, for all you know, Jack declined to appear on O’Reilly’s show. Thirdly, Hill is a regular contributor to Fox News, and appears on O’Reilly’s show frequently. Fourthly, Hill may be fishing for attention, and fifthly, your comments, sir, are just plain stupid.

    I laughed because Bill was chastising Lamont Hill for speculating and discussing things based on that.

    Isn’t that what the entire Fox News model is based on? They are “only asking questions” about Benghazi and his birth certificate and all that crap. They speculate about everything regarding Obama and create false news based on that.

    So hilarious to see O’Reilly from FOX NEWS tell people they shouldn’t be going on the air with hypothesis and speculation.

  • OKWishbone

    Marc Lamont Hill is the equivalent of an ambulance chaser in the world of race relations and racism. If it involves blacks and whites, this guy always wants to “have a conversation…” This never-ending conversation requires a continuing recognition that whites push around blacks therefore, the evil whites need moral cleansing and that some form of government controlled and organized system of social and financial reparations in all areas of life are required to make sufficient penance. This race-pimp likes to have “conversations” where he’s the only guy talking. I know that’s how he makes his money but, maybe we should stop putting him in front of cameras and he’ll just be quiet.

    That goofy smug grin of his is gone! Wonder why! How is it that the brilliant, articulate professor was “misunderstood”?

    Black people have more to fear from the gangstas, thugs, pimps, and rapists in their communities than the police! They refuse to help the police (snitches get stitches) and then whine about the lack of policing in their neighborhood! They confront police at every turn and then cry about “brutality”!

    Did you see the LA mayor saying that the LAPD is 75% minority! 75%! 75%! 75% minority! If you read the manifesto of this madman, he was mad at a woman, two Hispanics and an Asian! We really have entered the Twilight Zone!

    This character Marc Lamont Hill is a sick and twisted piece of work… he’s the epitome of everything that’s wrong with individuals in America today.

    Instead of fracturing America any further, why don’t these progressive liberals take their brand of lunacy and start their own country… and when their Utopian society crumbles from their complete inability to grasp reality and the ramifications of their irrational actions, we’ll help them establish their Utopia in the middle of the ocean on a man-made island.

    …and there won’t be reparations any further than that.

    He lost the credibility argument as soon he made it apparent he saw the movie “Django”. His best argument would have been to admit seeing that dreck of a film lowered his IQ 50 points and opened him up to making such an absurd statement regarding a spree killer.

    I’m curious, has George Zimmerman apologized enough yet for surviving the brutal beating that Trayvon Martin gave him before he dared to kill him in (self defense)?! If roles were reversed and dorner were a white cop killing blacks and asians as this cop did Spike Lee would have his pink (or is it black) panther buddies put a bounty on his head, and go after his relatives and loved ones, (especially grandparents) but poor spike graduated from pubic screwell, so numbers are meaningless symbols to him, so Rosanne Barr would have to correct him, thank Obama for fat white chicks who are allowed to be fat because they are liberal enough to matter!

    Many blacks, led by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Mark Lamont Hill, seem to think that this psychotic Dorner was justified in his racist rant of 11000 plus words. Any reasonable person could tell be reading his ” manifesto” that Dorner had deep, psychological issues. Did he really think that his “advice” to left wing tv personalities and movies stars would be taken seriously? It shows the mind of a mad man.
    Dorner’s ex-girlfriend said that he was ” twisted” and ” obsessed with race”. His marriage to another woman lasted one month and she refuses to talk about the short marriage as it is to humiliating.
    Dorner’s case against Officer Evans was brought to 2 appellate courts. Citing the witnesses, police and civilians, the last decision found that there was NO evidence of Officer Evans kicking the mentally disturbed suspect. Dorner did not even bring up these false allegations until 12 days AFTER the incident, and one day after Officer Evans wrote a negative evaluation about Dorners shoddy police work.
    I hope the black community stops making this killer a hero, and focus more of their energy on the innocent victims Dorner murdered.
