According to Ben Stein, Obama’s “hatred of America” may be due to the influence of President Obama’s father. Stein made these comments about Obama’s beliefs while discussing the response to ISIS attacks around the globe.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Ben Stein once said that the United States should develop an Iron Dome missile defense system. Similar to Israel’s defense systems, this upgraded version would supposedly protect America against nuclear nations like North Korea.
Ben Stein’s comments about Obama’s “hatred of America” came up during the November 17 edition of Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg Show. But at first Stein was discussing how President Obama has handled the threat of ISIS in America.

“Mr. Obama has been wrong from day one about ISIS,” Stein claimed. “He called them the JV team, he said that they weren’t really serious or important. He has not in any sense addressed their threat, and he’s a bad joke as the leader of the most important nation in the world — he’s a bad joke.”
Malzberg agreed with Stein, saying that Obama is a “bad joke.” The Newsmax host also noted that “Rush Limbaugh kicked off his show today by saying that Obama is a danger to the safety of this nation.”
“Oh he’s a very real danger,” Stein replied. “I’m very interested in psychology, I’m very interested in psychoanalysis, I guess I probably should have been a psychologist or psychoanalyst but I think the question is why is he so angry at America?”
In trying to psychoanalyze, Ben Stein said Obama’s “hatred of America” may come from several potential sources.
“I don’t think there’s much question that he does not wish America well. He has a real, strong, hatred of America,” Stein asserted. “Is it because he’s part black? I don’t know. Is it because his father was mistreated by the British in Kenya? I don’t know. We don’t know. We just know that in terms of being a forthright, bold leader who takes on our enemies, he’s not there, he’s missing in action.”
In the past, Stein has made many controversial claims about Obama. For example, Stein once said that Obama is the “most racist president there has ever been in America. He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.” To put this claim into context, Stein was claiming that the Obama administration purposefully used racism as a method for discouraging black voters from voting for Republicans.
“What the White House is trying to do is racialize all politics and their especially trying to tell the Africa-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that’s just a complete lie,” Stein said.
Obama was not alone in receiving this type of criticism. Ben Stein also called Hillary Clinton racist, claiming that she tries to “whip up the African-American vote and say, ‘Oh, the Republicans have policies against black people in terms of the economy.’” Stein claims the GOP does not have any such policies, instead asserting that Democrats are trying to “racialize voting in this country.”

“The idea that the Republicans are making life difficult for black people is just nonsense, just absolute nonsense,” he said.
