Old skeletons have been dug up from the Twitter account of The Huffington Post’s front-page editor, revealing a history of anti-Semitic and homophobic tweets.
Philip Lewis is likely wishing he used the “delete” button, but it’s too late to do that now, after The Daily Caller found a series of offensive tweets fired off by the journalist as far back as 2011.
“Where da jews, where da jews, where da jews at – DMX ft Hitler,” Lewis tweeted in 2012.

“I’m tired of all these Jewish jokes…Anne Frankly, I don’t approve,” he wrote in November 2011.
He also had some kind words for black nationalist Louis Farrakhan – The Nation of Islam group leader who lost his verified Twitter status just days ago after linking to a three-hour long sermon denouncing Jews.
Louis Farrakhan is as sharp in 2015 as he was in 1967. I hope my mind can stay that sharp as I age.

But Lewis’ controversial tweets didn’t only insult Jews. He also took aim at lesbians, who he referred to as “dykes” in multiple tweets.
Got hit on last night by a dyke, I’m still confused as to what that was all about lol

The revelations about Lewis’ tweets come just weeks after the left-leaning Huffington Post ran a headline which read: “Trump Refers To Immigrants As ‘Animals.’ Again.” That was entirely false, however, as Trump had actually been referring to members of the violent MS-13 crime gang, or Mara Salvatrucha.
