Ron Paul didn't enjoy shouting at Ben Stein, but what he said was "upsetting".

I realize this is old news, I had just never seen this interview before. Enjoy. :)

Ben Stein: Another psychologically unstable Zionist


Ben Stein's attack on Ron Paul: Another psychologically unstable Zionist playing the anti-Semite card?

Ron Paul, Ben Stein, & Israeli Minister who said the anti-semitic label 'always used' as a trick VID

(Examiner.com) -- By Martin Hill --

In a Larry King segment yesterday with guests Congressman Ron Paul, Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein, the four were discussing airline security, with Jackson Lee promoting protection of the so-called "homeland". The topic of terrorism and its' root causes came up, and Neoconservative Ben Stein called Ron Paul's arguements 'anti-semitic'. This prompted Paul to demand an apology and the segment deteriorated into a near shouting match, with King pulling down the audio saying that the three will be back again tomorrow.

At 6:40 in the video, Ron Paul had asked Stein "Why are they terrorists?"

Stein: "They're terrorists and murders because theyre psychos"

Paul: "They're terrorists because were occupiers!"

Stein: "No, we're not occupyers, that's the same anti-semitic arguement we've heard over and over again; no. "

A shocked Paul points at Stein saying , "Oh. now that is a viscious attack!"

Stein: "Its' not a viscious attack."

Paul: "You discredit yourself. Totally discredit yourself"

Sheila Jackson Lee then jumps in, repeatedly offering to referree between the two Republicans.

It's worthwhile to note that Stein, who is Jewish and admitted to Time magazine in 1999 that he was under psychiatric care, was Richard Nixon's speechwriter. Nixon, who made such remarks as "The Jews are irreligious, atheistic, immoral bunch of bastards", "As long as I'm sitting in the chair, there's not going to be any Jew appointed to that court. [No Jew] can be right on the criminal-law", and "every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana are Jewish", also employed Ben Stein's father...

This recent Larry King clip with Stein smearing Ron Paul as an "anti-semite" has prompted recirculation of an old youtube video entitled "It's a Trick, We Always Use It." (calling people "anti-Semitic"). A new variation including the Paul-Stein exchange has been added.

It might be helpful though, to view the clip in it's entirety and in it's proper context. The youtube excerpts are actually from a 2002 interview with an Israeli Minister who spoke out against Israeli's occupation and human rights abuses of the Palestinian people...

Aloni: "Well its a trick, we always use it. When from Europe someobody is criticizing Israel then we bring up the holocaust . When in this country people are criticizing Israel then they are anti-semitic. And the organization is strong and has a lot of money. And the ties between Israel and the American estab- Jewish establishment are very strong and- they are stong in this country, as you know. And they have power, which is ok. They are talented people and they have power and money, and the media and other things, and their attitude is 'Israel my country right or wrong' , identification. And they are not ready to hear criticism. And it's very easy to blame people who criticize certain acts of the Israeli govt as anti-semitic and to bring up the holocaust and the suffering of the Jewish people and that- that is justify everything we do to the Palestinians."



Ben Stein Is Mentally Unbalanced Dr. Paul

He has been treated in the past for emotional problems. Apparently he thinks he has cornered the market on truth.

He should stick with what he does best - make commercials..


Was that Jesse Benton at the end?

He just had to get some face time, didn't he.
