MSNBC’s Harris-Perry Claims Children do not Belong to Parents

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 10, 2013

The Left is fully coming out of the closet.  There radical belief in collectivism, which is the hallmark of the Progressive movement, was once hidden in camouflage.  The bad news is they recently feel emboldened enough to take their view public.  The good news about this bravado is that they can no longer obtain their way politically through trickery.  This places the decision in the hands of the electorate to determine if the Left’s radical agenda is the direction middle America wants to travel.

There is no better representation of the Left’s belief in collectivism than an MSNBC promotional video put out with anchor Melissa Harris-Perry who remarkably says in the video posted below that the country must get over the old-fashioned view “… that kids belong to their parents …”:

“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children.  Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility.  We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.  So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

It would be tragic enough if the views expressed by Harris-Perry were done so because of stupidity and lack of logic.  However, there are insidious goals behind the philosophy of moving child-rearing responsibilities to the state.  First, it allows the state and those that run it to brainwash children into belief systems that are not only different from the parents, but also help perpetuate the power of the political elite.  In addition, removing parental responsibility from child-rearing fits the narrative promoted by Progressives that marriage and committed relationships are not important in child-rearing.

The road proposed by Melissa Harris-Perry to fundamentally change America is in keeping with that promised by Barack Obama six days before being elected to his first term as president.  For those Americans who like the direction that in America is heading get ready to give up your parental and other rights to the state.  For those that disagree with the direction being traveled, the Country is at a tipping point.  Only with a game changing politician of the stature of Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher and a concerted effort by middle-of-the-road Americans can individual rights once again become a part of the American culture.
