Some nutjob at Fox News (I know; redundant) wants America to take over the world.
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.”
Haven’t we done that already? Coca-Cola is the world’s most recognized trademark. Mickey Mouse has fans in North Korea. They watch The Big Bang Theory in Cuba.
It’s only when we actually try to impose our form of government on other people that they get testy, like say in Iraq, or when we try to get them all to become Christians, like say in everywhere.
Give us time, Dr. Ablow; we won the world with our charm, Hershey bars, and money after World War II. Now why don’t you go off and play with your home lobotomy kit?
