A Huffington Post editor used a homophobic slur, made anti-Semitic Holocaust jokes, and tweeted about hating police officers in old tweets, The Daily Caller has learned.
Philip Lewis currently serves as the front page editor for the widely popular left-leaning site Huffington Post.
Lewis’ Twitter page has a number of anti-Semitic jokes, including vile jokes about the Holocaust.
He once tweeted, “Where da jews, where da jews, where da jews at – DMX ft Hitler.”
Lewis has also tweeted, “im tired of all these jewish jokes….Anne Frankly, i dont approve.”
He has also tweeted praise for Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic, homophobic, anti-white Nation of Islam leader. Lewis tweeted, “Louis Farrakhan is as sharp in 2015 as he was in 1967. I hope my mind can stay that sharp as I age.”
Farrakhan has previously said, “the Satanic Jews…control everything and mostly everybody.”
He has also praised Adolf Hitler, saying, “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.” (RELATED: Seven Louis Farrakhan Quotes On Jews, Gays And White People)
Lewis has also repeatedly used homophobic slurs in the past, as recently as 2014.
“Got hit on last night by a dyke, I’m still confused as to what that was all about lol,” he tweeted in May 2014.
He’s also said, “Get this dyke off the computer lol.”
Lewis also was not a very big fan of the police, according to his previous tweets.
He once tweeted, “Woooooooooow I hate cops.”
The Daily Caller reached out to both HuffPost’s media contact, as well as Lewis’ email, but received no comment from either by press time.
The Huffington Post isn’t the only major media brand to employ people with questionable Twitter histories.
As TheDC has previously reported, The New York Times employs people who have previously tweeted anti-military messages, among other things. (EXCLUSIVE: NYT Reporters Say ‘F**k The Military,’ Promote Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories, Tweet The N-Word)
NYT journalist Sapna Maheshwari also previously tweeted the n-word in reference to a popular rap song.
