Ben Stein: Obama Is ‘A Bad Joke’, Does He Hate America

Actor; author; and former economist, lawyer, and speech writer, Ben Stein had a lot to say about President Barack Obama when he appeared on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

Stein expressed his belief that Obama has a strong hatred of America. He said,

“Mr. Obama has been wrong from day one about ISIS. He called them a JV team, he said that they weren’t really serious or important. He has not in any sense addressed their threat. And he is a bad joke, as the leader of the most important nation in the world, he’s a bad joke.”

Stein’s sentiment has been echoed throughout the country as people are trying to make sense of the president’s actions.

First, we had a terrorist swap that involved the U.S. giving up five senior Taliban leaders in exchange for one American soldier who was accused of desertion.

Then we have the administration’s Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice both refusing to acknowledge that radicalized Islam has anything to do with Islam.

Next to consider is the Fort Hood shooting involving Nidal Hasan. Hasan allegedly yelled Allahu Akbar, a battle cry for Muslim terrorists, yet the Obama Administration classified the incident workplace violence.

Up next would be the terrorist strike on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi where four Americans were killed. Although Barack Obama knew that the cause was a well planned coordinated attack by terrorists, he still went in front of the cameras and blamed a YouTube video.

After that would be the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris. Though the world united after the assassination of innocent people at the hands of radical Islamists, the president decided he would not join in the Unity March that involved many world leaders, nor would he have a representative attend the march. Obama later gave a speech that almost excused the actions of the terrorists, telling the world that the Crusades were horrible as well.

As the world watched in horror as American journalist, James Foley was beheaded by radical Islamists, Barack Obama thought it would be a good idea to immediately spend the day golfing.

Then, as Ben Stein mentioned, we have Barack Obama calling ISIS a JV team, saying that they weren’t really serious or important. That group of ‘amateurs’ have since captured a large swath of land along the Iraq and Syrian border as the base for their caliphate, and have launched several successful terrorist attacks since Obama made his dismissive comments.

On top of the above items, Obama gave an interview in which he bragged about ISIS being contained and weakening, just one day before the multiple attacks in Paris that left hundreds of casualties. Afterwards, he addressed the nation, saying that we should not we should not equate the actions of the radical Islamists who attacked Paris to Islam because that would be counterproductive.

Lastly, and unexplainably, the Obama Administration is planning on bringing in 10,000 Syrian refugees without being able to screen them for terrorist ties.

Tough it might not be politically correct to say that the president is a real danger for America, as Ben Stein believes, one could easily make a strong case that there is something wrong with the president’s actions towards terrorists and his lackadaisical attitude towards protecting the nation.
