It’s no secret that Ben Stein is a conservative. He’s hosted his own talk show, and of course he’s most known for his role in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.
Stein doesn’t think too highly of freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Stein advocated not long ago that Ocasio-Cortez “invariably lead to bad things,” including genocide.
Stein, the former speechwriter for President Richard M. Nixon, and a political commentator compared Ocasio-Cortez to the likes of Adolph Hitler.
“We have a society in which there are an awful lot of people who have no idea that Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung all came to power promising the same kinds of things that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is promising. And it led to mass murder, it led to dictatorship, it led to genocide. These promises are old promises and they invariably lead to bad things.”
Stein said the current system “works extremely well” and “allows people to make something of themselves instead of oppressing other people” as they try to earn money.
“Making money is one of the most of harmless things there is to do in the whole world,” he said. “And that’s what our society is about.”
