Ben Stein Calls Ron Paul Anti-Semitic

RON PAUL: If you dismiss motivations for why they hate us, we can never resolve this. There’s hate on both sides. You have to ask the question, why do they hate? And they usually come up with a reason. And we’re foolish not to take that into consideration.

KING: Ben?

STEIN: Well, that’s — I have never heard anything quite like that in my whole life. What he’s saying, basically, is we are doing something wrong by defending ourselves. Look, if these terrorists are trying to kill the government of Yemen, we’ve got to help defend them. They’re our friends. We can’t just let al Qaeda run wild. If we try to stop them —

PAUL: Why?

STEIN: Why should we stop them? Because they are terrorists and murderers and they’re very anti-American.

PAUL: Why are they terrorists?

STEIN: Surely congressman —

STEIN: They’re terrorists and murders because they are psychos.

PAUL: They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers.

PAUL: Now that is a vicious attack. You —

(CROSS TALK)

STEIN: It’s not a vicious attack.

LEE: Larry, I’d like to respond to some of these points that are being made.

KING: Let’s go back to Sheila.
