Larry King asks his guests about the recent thwarted terrorist plot to blow up a plane en route to Detroit from Amsterdam.

Ron Paul: "They are terrorists because we are occupiers." Ben Stein says he never heard anything quit like that in his whole life: "They're terrorists and murderers because they're psycho's."

Really an amazing conversation. Scroll to 5:15 minutes for the start of this collision.

Stein claims anti-semitic

Apathy Supports the Status Quo

Two prhases are often invoked in order to stifle, censor or change the subject: Conspiracy Theory and anti-semitic. Ben Stein claims Ron Paul is being anti-semitic at about the 6:53 mark because Paul suggested the reason they (Al Qaeda, Yemen airline terrorist) hate us is because we are occupiers. Stein's comment about Paul being anti-semitic is lunacy.

Ben Stein!

Ben Stein appeared on one of the News programs about four years ago. I do not remember what he had to say but it was then that I vowed to not watch broadcast television any more.

Thank you Ben Stein for convincing me that television was a massive tool for propaganda and that I would be better off without it.

If Not Me? Who? If Not Now? When?

The Real Tool

Ben Stein is a definitely a tool in more ways than one. What an incredibly cheap and ridiculous comment, like Paul states, Stein loses all credibility (not that he had any to begin with). To think our imperial wars and occupation of two Middle Eastern countries would have no impact on how that region, and even the rest of the friggin world views us, in naive and ignorant. I could even hate us if our country was filled with racists like Ben Stein (look for the psychos within Benny baby).
