"Hostile and Sick People"

Reported by Melanie - August 2, 2004 -

Ben Stein was a guest on Your World w/Neil Cavuto today (August 2, 2004) at about 4:30 p.m. ET. Stein has a new book out: Can America Survive?: The Rage of the Left, the Truth, and What to Do About It.

Stuart Varney substituted for Cavuto, and he let Stein do most of the talking. Stein started out by saying that the people who are against America aren't just al Qaeda but "Hollywood...the 'beautiful people'...New York[ers]." Varney said, but we are still fighting a "life or death battle" with terrorists. Stein assured us there are plenty of "anti-American Americans" who are "sliming America" and some are "well known names in Hollywood." Varney said some suggest there are extremists in places like universities. Stein said yes, the universities are full of them, as is Hollywood, and that there's an old saying which says, in part: "If you can't do it, teach," and some people are "spoiled and overpaid" and they can't stand it if the country doesn't "kiss their feet."

Stein continued, saying that these people think the mid-section of the country is "filled with Ku Klux Klan" members, that they should wake up and realize that America is the "extreme example" of God's gift, that "America is God's gift to the earth." Stein predicted Bush would win the election but said there will always be "hostile and sick people" who get elected too.

COMMENT: For those of you who aren't familiar with this Fox program, "Your World w/Neil Cavuto," it's billed as Fox News' premier economic and financial program, akin to Lou Dobbs on CNN. It comes on at 4:00 p.m. ET, at the moment the stock markets closes. It's allegedly a sort of "market wrap" program. This interview, and the views aired, are typical of the absolute trash regularly included (visit the Cavuto category to read prior entries). Just think, American citizens are watching this by the millions, thinking they're getting "fair and balanced news."
