Remember Ben Stein? The slightly chubby, jokingly snide, host of the show where he pretended to give away his own money if players could defeat him in a trivia challenge. Of course ben is not just a game show host. No; he is also an actor, a former speech writer for Richard Nixon and a Conservative mouthpiece.
Ben has several times in the past; said things that make anyone with human feelings cringe. Living in the Republican bastion of Idaho and living the life of a wealthy Republican investor has certainly insulated him from the real world. Perhaps he believes this is just another fictional script for a bad TV movie. I don’t know and neither does Ben.
I picked a few choice comments he has recently made:
The last time we spoke; I said I would be back to discuss Racism again and I am. But this time I would like you to take a serious look at some other victims of Racism. Even if you are a Black American; I think you will agree that these people are suffering Racism on the same level or worse than you are. Not to minimize your struggle at all. But to say; “You are not alone” You are part of a larger class of people who are the victims of an unreasoning and unreasoned hatred.
Once again standing up for human rights and Constituional rights; Jonathan Turley posted an article today detailing the ill treatment of a British Citizen by US and Foriegn Interrogators. Binyam Mohamed was Indefinitely Detained in Morroco for two years.
The Obama Administration has constantly fought to prevent Britain from releasing this information even theatening them with diplomatic penalties if they failed to comply with the wishes and whims of the Great American Plutocracy.
