Recently Larry King, CNN News Personality, assembled Republican Congressman Ron Paul, Economist and Columnist Ben Stein, and Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
During the program, Republican Congressman Ron Paul asked Americans to consider what is the motive for terrorist attacks?
For that he was called "anti-Semitic" for asking the question by Ben Stein.
Ron Paul seems to think that we are 'occupiers' and for that we will have terrorist attacks.
Ron Paul must be smoking something.
I wonder how he could come to that conclusion?
But if you question why we need to occupy foreign lands in the Middle East then you are in danger of being labeled 2 things.
#1. You could be labeled a Terrorist Supporter or Sympathizer and perhaps be placed on a Watch List or a No Fly List. But if you don't have a passport, you are from Nigeria, your father warns the US government that you might be thinking of terrorism, you are already on a watch list, you have a bomb but nobody bothers to check, you appear like you are under mind control, and you are accompanied by a well dressed man, then you are free to fly.
#2. You could also be labeled anti-Semitic.
So Ron Paul is making the serious mistake of actually analyzing why America is hated. For that he is being labeled #2 on the possible list of thought control buzz words.
But what is an anti-Semite?
For that we can go to Wikipedia and find that it is:
....prejudice against or hostility towards Jews, often rooted in hatred of their ethnic background, culture, or religion. While the term's etymology might suggest that antisemitism is directed against all Semitic peoples, since the term was invented it has been used to refer exclusively to hostility toward Jews. In its extreme form, it "attributes to the Jews an exceptional position among all other civilizations, defames them as an inferior group and denies their being part of the nation[s]" in which they reside.
So evidently, according to Ben Stein, Ron Paul hates Jews just because he thinks America shouldn't occupy countries that don't want to be occupied.
So let's see if Ron Paul might be motivated by something other than hatred of Jews.
America recently, along with Saudi Arabia, started a bombing campaign of Yemen.
