Give that a moment.
Ben Stein: Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Win Ben Stein's Money is also of The American Spectator.
And he's written a piece about Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fl). (Hey, so did I)
I caught a link and thought Oh, hey, Ben Stein. Let's see what he has to say.
From the piece: "I hope it won't come as a surprise to anyone that a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys."
What? WHAT?? Ben Stein has won the WTF Award.
Ben claims his best friend is a homosexual. This man is probably no longer his best friend.
What smarty-pants Stein has failed to recognize is that homosexuals are attracted to members of their own gender, just like heterosexuals are attracted to members of the opposite gender. If that attraction dips below the age of consent, below that social and legal border of decency, then it is labeled - by both heterosexuals and homosexuals - as pedophilia.
You see, Ben, pedophilia is not about the gender as much as it is the age. They like 'em young (see NAMBLA). Pedophiles are the West Virginia of the "adult consensual relationship" world: Whether you're in the North or the South, you don't want any part of it.
I don't know where he got the socially ignorant view that pedophilia is a part of homosexuality, but it is wrong. So, for anyone out there who still doesn't get it: A homosexual is someone who is attracted to the same sex (consensual). A pedophile is attracted to kids (illegal).
Now that we've got that out of the way...
"Second, let's look at George Allen. Now, he's a bad guy because he has a Confederate flag."
What the Christ?!
George Allen is a bad guy because he used a North African racial slur ('macaca') in reference to a dark-skinned videographer, downplays his Jewish ancestry as though he was talking about getting the clap in high school, and used to call African Americans niggers. (Yes, I conceded to using the word he used instead of making a euphemism out of bigotry. Perhaps if the media stopped dancing around it we'd realize its gravity.)
Just these three things exemplify that George Allen thinks little of anyone who's not a white, blushing, European-bred non-Jew. That makes him a racist. That makes him a bad guy. Hell, I didn't even know he had a confederate flag. Not that I'm surprised. Cherry on top, as it were.
Why pervert homosexuality? Why defend George Allen, of all people? Apparently it's a hypocrisy contest and Ben Stein wants to prove the Democrats are hypocrites. Worse than the Republicans. Unfortunately, the brain train has lost his logic nut.
Ben says that it's hypocritical for Democrats, who have traditionally supported gay rights, to come down so hard on a gay man. We've covered this: all signs point to pedophilia, not homosexuality. No one likes a pedophile, especially homosexuals who have to deal with ignorant tools who still think gays want your kids.
Ben says that it's hypocritical for Democrats, who apparently have "in the Senate an actual former Klansman, Robert Byrd of West Virginia," to be critical of a confederate flag. Again, already been covered: I've never heard anyone speak out about Allen's flag, but his racist comments are media spooge shooting all over the internet. Why wasn't that addressed?
Finding hypocrisy in government and politics in general is like looking for water in the ocean. That's what it's made of! And holding a contest to see which party has accrued the most exposes only two things: the leaning of the writer and folly of his judgment.
