Fox "News" psychiatrist: Obama pushing gun control because he was ‘abandoned’ as a boy

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Raw Story

Fox News’ resident psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow believes that President Barack Obama advocates “disempowering” people through gun safety legislation because he was “abandoned” as a child.

Ablow on Tuesday told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs that the president had “hijacked” the slaughter of 20 children in Newtown, Connecticut “in order to advance his desire for gun control.”

................



Dobbs wondered if Obama was “truly that Machiavellian, that driven by his own ideological purpose” that he would advocate for gun control instead of embracing the values of freedom and fixing the mental health system.

“I’m certain that’s true,” Ablow opined. “Number one, the autonomy of others did him no favors as a kid, when he was abandoned again and again by people who were — quote — unquote — responsible and supposed to do the right thing, like parents. So his belief, ‘You know what? What good is individual autonomy in decision making? What good did it do me? The collective is what needs to be empowered, and all the better if I’m the center of that collective and the most powerful person in it.’”

4. Oh fa chrissakes!!

What other nutty theories will they think up next. Faux News has long lost any shred of credibility they ever had as a news organization (if they ever had any to begin with). Only the completely delusional still hang on to their every word as "news" and gospel.

8. Meh, we keep calling gun nuts the itty-bitty-peni club

Doesn't make Dr. aBLOWS any less of a sell-out idiot, but it is along similar lines. Certainly not what one would expect from a professional.

9. Of course this is bat crap crazy but .....

.... if you listen to Fox the this makes sense to you. I had one customer tell me that
the reason why we are running out of oil is because the Chinese are drilling at a sharp
angle off of Cub so they can "steal our oil."

The truth doesn't matter to Fox but what is important is to get "the story" that Ailes and
Murdoch want spread out there.

11. This is not news of national importance. It's rawstory watching a tv show

then telling us about what they saw. In the future don't post these types of posts in LBN... Thanks.
