Fox’s Outnumbered chickenhawks suggested that if President Obama was more of a Christian, he’d be the killing machine they just know is the answer to terrorism in the Middle East.
There was not a single foreign-policy, terrorism or military credential to be found on Fox News’ Outnumbered set today. But each one of the five co-hosts seemed certain that if only President Obama hated Muslims more, we’d do so much better in the war against terrorism.
Psychiatrist Keith Ablow, today’s #OneLuckyGuy, was less about Obama’s religion and more about his psyche, even though Ablow has never examined him. “The president has something about his way of being that’s deeply rooted inside him that does not sit well with this country and with the notion of joining forces for autonomy and freedom and identifying real threats for what they are,” Ablow opined. “There’s something that’s deeply ingrained in our president that can’t embrace America as a force for good in the world, as a leader for good. And I’ve said it again and again and now it’s coming home to roost.”
Chickenhawk Andrea Tantaros, acting as host for the segment, suggested she had it figured out: Obama’s too Muslim! “Is it his childhood?” Tantaros “asked,” referencing the years Obama lived in Indonesia. “If he just doesn’t acknowledge the threat and he takes his mind back to where he was as a child, when he remembers a peaceful Islam, the threat won’t exist if he doesn’t acknowledge it.”
According to Ablow, it’s that Obama is too anti-America.
ABLOW: It’s that he’s balancing threats. And to the president of the United States, I believe, that the United States of America is the bigger threat, that he sees that our focus on autonomy, our desire to spread our ideas around the world has been a great plague and he’s, you know, really not up for the idea of saying, “I’m with these guys against them” because he sees them as people who have been put upon.
Guest co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy may have learned her foreign policy chops alongside co-host Kennedy at MTV. Or maybe from being a mother. Campos-Duffy said, “I have little kids… and they go, ‘Why don’t we just kill them?’ And, you know, it seems like even little kids get that.”
Or maybe being a father is all you need. Ablow announced, “If someone wants to kill my children and that’s their intent, I’m going to go kill them. That’s it! That’s the arithmetic.”
Co-host and Columbia Magazine’s Best Personality of the Year Ainsley Earhardt agreed. “It’s just like if you have a problem with your child or a problem in your relationship. You’ve got to find out the root of that problem. What we’ve got to find out, what is the root, what’s causing them to do this. It’s religion! And I feel like our president is not saying that. …He’s got to go to the root of this problem if we want to try to win this war. And if it is about religion… do we go in and just kill ‘em? Because you can’t change their mind.”
Campos-Duffy took it a step further: “He came into office saying that he wanted to fundamentally transform America. I think there’s no doubt right now that he is fundamentally transforming the Middle East by negligence or intentional negligence.” She didn’t mention if she got that from one of her kids or all on her own.
Ablow seconded Campos-Duffy. “It would now be delusional, we would be a little crazy to be thinking that it’s not intentional negligence,” he said. “That’s a profound thing to believe by the way. If you believe that the president is intentionally empowering our adversaries, that’s a very weighty moment.”
“And more than weighty. I’d say scary,” Tantaros added.
Because you can never be too afraid or hate President Obama too much on Fox News.
