Dr. Keith Ablow of Fox News’ “Medical A Team” (he must be the “Howling Mad Murdoch” character) has a deeply insane column up in which he theorizes that, instead of being the lazy, shiftless incompetent most Fox viewers understand him to be, President Obama is actually a wily super-villain who is waging “psychological warfare on Americans” via ultra-sophisticated blackity-black ops:
The techniques are often combined with black ops strategy, in which covert initiatives seek to dispirit, disempower and confuse adversaries.
The psychological warfare has continued, I believe, with other opportunities the president has had to make American’s [sic] question their individual freedoms and autonomy.
Ablow cites the thus-far futile attempt to restrict access to high-capacity magazines and improve background checks in the wake of the Newtown massacre as an attempt to wage “psychological warfare on the American belief that force is justifiable when confronting evil.”
This cleverly disguised pacifism explains why everyone on the left is united in praising Obama’s remote-controlled airdrops of Yoga videos, scones and instant latte cups in Yemen and Waziristan, as well as the accidental aerial disbursement of GameStop cards on the odd Afghan wedding party.
Ablow also espies dastardly blackity-black ops plots in the IRS and AP brouhahas and even Benghazi:
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 to reinforce the notion that homicidal violence born of hatred toward America is understandable—even condonable—because we have generated it ourselves and are reaping the harvest of ill will we have sown. In other words, we should take our punishment.
Whereas consigning Osama bin Laden to the briny deep was what, a sack-dance in the end zone of failed whitey GWB?
Nut-picking, you say? But these aren’t the rantings of some random, syphilitic, bunny-hoarding Freeper — well, they are! — however, Ablow is also often included in the so-called “straight news” Fox programming.
The mind reels.
