Keith Ablow, a doctor and Fox News analyst, thinks that the United States should aggressively export its system of government to every single country on earth. What could go wrong?
In a comically unhinged column posted to Fox News' website on Tuesday, Ablow calls for an "American jihad" in which the U.S. would aggressively move to America-ify the entire world, which totally makes sense because "the Constitution is a sacred document that better defines and preserves the liberty and autonomy of human beings than the charter of any other nation on earth."
How would this ambitious plan work? Well, Ablow explains, "we would tie American aid to incremental changes not just in the attitudes, but in the fundamental structures, of countries. These changes would move those countries, slowly but inexorably, toward reflecting our Constitution in their own charters." The plan would also involve doubling the budget for the CIA and Special Forces, presumably to counter any foolhardy resistance to American domination. There's more, but you get the idea.
Ablow further expounded on his vision on "Fox and Friends" Wednesday. After listening, host Brian Kilmeade correctly noted that Ablow had "some views that need to be discussed."
The good Dr. Ablow is not exactly known for his grip on reality. In a Fox News radio segment last week, he accused President Obama of welcoming Ebola to the United States, thanks to his "affinities" with Africa.
