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.”

‘America is running away like rats’: Watch angry Kurds blame US troops for dead babies as they withdraw
The Associated Press obtained video of Kurds pelting American military vehicles with fruit as they withdrew from Syria.
The video was first captured by a Kurdish news agency, the AP said in a report on Monday.
“Like rats, America is running away,” one man shouted in Arabic. Another shouted obscenities and talked of babies in Kurdish-held Syria who had died in the Turkish offensive.
The scene encapsulated the Kurds’ feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to a US withdrawal that has been rushed and involved several close brushes with Turkish-backed forces.

White House urged diplomats to stay quiet about withheld aid to Ukraine: ‘Nothing to see here’
As Democrats proceed with impeachment, there are explosive new revelations almost daily related to President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that top diplomats were instructed to keep quiet about the temporary freeze on the $141 million package of aid to Ukraine.
“Keep moving, people, nothing to see here,” Brad Freden, the State Department’s acting deputy assistant secretary of Europe and Eurasia, said in an email.
