Fox News’ resident psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow told a group of tea partiers over the weekend that they had been “enslaved” by taxes and “slaves always revolt.”
At a Saturday “Tax Day Tea Party Rally” in Boston, Ablow explained that the government wanted to take away guns because “having firearms means you have the ability to defend yourself.” Video of the event was uploaded on Sunday.
“The thing with slaves is you can’t keep ’em, they always revolt,” the Fox News contributor opined. “Enslaved by the notion of ever-increasing taxes, told that we can’t spend our money — even the money that we do take home — the way we want to. Told that adulthood starts at 25, if ever. Told that nobody should really be able to hold a firearm and know that he or she can defend his family or her family if push comes to shove. That can’t stand because slaves always revolt.”
“No one can shackle the American spirit because inside each of us and the reason we love America is because we love the capacity of people to outperform, we rely on it… So, don’t let anybody tell you that we won’t win because the truth, my friends, always wins.”

C-SPAN caller poisoned by Trump says congresswomen in The Squad own ’27 million black African slaves’
A Republican caller told C-SPAN on Monday that four non-white congresswomen own "27 million black African slaves."
On C-SPAN's Washington Journal program, a woman in Washington called in on the Republican line to rant against members of the so-called Squad: Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI).
Lara began her call by chastising the media.
"There's a lot of facts that are being walked around," she complained. "For example, regarding the Russia-Mueller thing, it's a proven fact that there was false evidence bought by Obama, Clinton and all the rest... those are facts. That's not an opinion."
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chokes up responding to Trump: ‘Time to move on from his conception of America’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday fired back at President Donald Trump after he told her to "go back" to her country of origin -- even though she was born in the U.S.
"It's unfortunate that he feels the way he feels about people of color," Ocasio-Cortez explained to NBC News. "It's unfortunate the way he feels about immigrants, naturalized citizens or not."
"What I would tell him is that it's time to move on from him," she continued as she seemed to choke up. "And it's time to move on from his conception of an America that we tried to move past for a long time."
