Fox’s Keith Ablow: ‘It’s Time For An American Jihad’ (VIDEO)

Conservative psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow, the biggest race-hustler on Fox News, issued a fatwa on Tuesday in a column for the channel’s website calling for “an American jihad” and “war or struggle against unbelievers.”

“An American jihad would embrace the correct belief that if every nation on earth were governed by freely elected leaders and by our Constitution, the world would be a far better place,” the Fox contributor wrote.

Ablow’s American Caliphate would wipe out the “psychological plague” brought on by the reign of Barack Obama, from the President’s “apology tour” onward.

The screed demanded that America pressure countries, including allies such as Germany, Sweden and Italy, to “adopt laws similar to our own.” Ablow even suggested U.S. politicians obtain dual citizenship so they may run for office in other nations.

“We might even fund our leaders’ campaigns for office in these other nations,” he wrote.

Ablow admitted that you can’t have a crusade without war: “We would accept the fact that an American jihad could mean boots on the ground in many places in the world where human rights are being denigrated and horrors are unfolding,” he wrote.

“[W]e have a God-given right to intervene,” he added.

Ablow appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning to further discuss his proposal for “jihad.”

“I looked it up, to make sure I was being consistent with the spirit of the word, which is a struggle against nonbelievers,” he told co-host Steve Doocey.

“We need to again embrace the fact that we have Manifest Destiny as this country, as Americans,” Ablow said, “to not only remain American — fundamentally, in our own national character — but to spread our national character to other nations.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade thanked Ablow for the interview and said the idea deserves to be discussed.

Ablow smiled. “What’s to discuss?”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
