Ben Stein: Michael Brown Was Hopped Up On Marijuana and ‘Armed With His Incredibly Strong, Scary Self’
I remember when I used to enjoy “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” but wow, are those days ever gone. Ben Stein has shown himself for quite a while to be a nutty reactionary, but this statement on Michael Brown, in an interview on NewsmaxTV, really takes him another step into bad racist craziness — as Stein opines that Michael Brown wasn’t unarmed at all, he was “armed with his incredibly strong, scary self.”
This bizarre, irrational talking point seems to be spreading through the right like wildfire. It’s a truly disgusting way for conservatives to deny the simple fact that an unarmed black teenager was gunned down in the street.
