In what may be the year’s most blatantly idiotic expression of puerile Teabaggery thus far, Fox News has published an article by their truly “psycho” analyst, Keith Ablow, that seriously charges President Obama with waging psychological warfare on Americans – the people who elected him twice by decisive margins and continue to approve of his leadership.

You may recall “doctor” Ablow as the lunatic who actually praised Newt Gingrich for being unfaithful to multiple wives; who welcomed the pain of Americans suffering through the recession; who repeatedly diagnosed President Obama and others without ever having met them. No wonder he was booted from the American Psychiatric Association.
This new column reaches farther into the dimwitted dementia of Ablow’s warped worldview than ever. The first paragraph lays the groundwork for a wildly deranged analysis that seems as if it were constructed by a mind rotted with schizophrenic delusions:
Ablow: “I believe that the Obama administration is conducting psychological warfare on conservative Americans. Not only that but it is also waging this war on all Americans who previously viewed themselves, their country, their Constitution and their overwhelming belief in God as a force for good in the world.”
You can almost hear his inner voice warning him to steer clear of the reptilian demons who have inhabited the bodies of otherwise ordinary looking neighbors. He is obviously struggling mightily to prevent his thoughts and organs from being stolen.
It is in this vein that he asserts the evidence of Obama’s mental assault on all that is virtuous. He cites as proof imagined “apology tours” and insufficient expressions of patriotic pride. Ablow goes on to declare that both the President and First Lady have deliberately “planted the seeds of self-hatred and self-doubt” into the American psyche. Further evidence of Obama’s malicious mind meld is his…
“…misrepresenting horrific crimes, such as the one which unfolded in Newtown, Connecticut, as evidence of the need for gun control measures, when they clearly evidenced a need for revamping our mental health care system.”
Of course, huge majorities of Americans believe that the Sandy Hook shootings did indeed reveal a need for additional gun safety measures, but Ablow would probably just attribute that to their being under the hypnotic spell of Warlock Barack. Ablow also says that “Attacking gun rights, I believe, is an element of the psychological warfare.” So in his reverse-logic brain, keeping the weapons of war out of the hands of crazies and criminals is in itself warfare.
Next Ablow attempts to tie his psych-war theory to recent so-called “scandals” that his fellow Tea-publicans are peddling. Somehow the IRS affair is part of Obama’s war effort and the tragedy in Benghazi has become a full-on conspiracy theory in Ablow’s diseased mind:
“Ablow: Seen through the lens of psychological warfare, the failure to defend our embassy in Benghazi need not be understood simply as a screw-up. It could reflect an actual strategy on the part of the administration.”
Ablow concludes by proclaiming that “Americans who value autonomy and free will and free markets and small government” are the targets of Obama’s “black ops technique in an ongoing war against our freedoms.” Black ops are generally defined as covert, extra-legal activities carried out by military and/or intelligence agencies. For Ablow to assign that sort of purposeful deployment of wartime hostility aimed at unsuspecting Americans is nothing short of delusional. It is beyond the conventional conspiracy theory theatrics of nutcases like Alex Jones or Glenn Beck (with whom Ablow co-authored a self-help book).
It is important to remember that Ablow is not broadcasting this drivel from an Idaho compound over a ham radio network. He is a member of the Fox News Medical “A” Team and his opinions are distributed by Fox and its affiliated “news” outlets. So the next time anyone tries to pass off Fox as a reputable journalistic enterprise, direct them to this example of the absurd balderdash that they regard as respectable reporting. Fox News continues to prove that their brand of journalism is about as respectable as the fruitcakes who gave us Batboy and alien encounters with former presidents and celebrities.
