CNN is facing backlash over a contributor’s tweets over the weekend that show the writer making positive remarks about Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler because of what Hitler did to Jews.

“Adeel Raja, who lists himself as a ‘Freelance Contributor at CNN’ on his LinkedIn profile, appears to have published several articles for CNN’s webpage,” The Washington Examiner reported. “According to the LinkedIn profile, Raja has held the position from August 2013 until the present day. His most recent byline for the outlet appears to have been from Sept. 16, 2020.”

A review of Raja’s Twitter account shows that he linked to the articles he wrote on CNN, and took credit for writing them. A spokesperson for CNN said that they had “never heard of him” and that they were “looking into it.”

On Sunday, Raja wrote in a now-deleted tweet: “The world today needs a Hitler.”

Late last week, Raja responded to a tweet from former Vice President Mike Pence, which stated: “America stands with Israel.”

Raja tweeted: “A history of creating terrorists and standing with them!”

During the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Raja wrote, “The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!” The next day Raja wrote: “Hail Hitler!”

“The unearthing of Raja’s controversial comments come amid the escalating violence between Israel and the militant group Hamas in the Middle East., which is at its most violent since the 2014 Gaza War,” Fox News reported. “Palestinian militants have fired hundreds of rockets into Israel, the majority of which have been intercepted by Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system. Israel has also responded with a series of airstrikes, which have taken out some of Hamas’ senior leaders.”
