MSNBC Commerical Asserts Your Kids Belong To The Community And You…Well, Mostly To The Community

melissaharrisperryFrom Newsbusters:

On March 23, my colleague Mark Finkelstein noted how MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry considers the unborn child a “thing” which takes a “lot of money” to “turn into a human,” costing thousands of dollars to care for each year of his/her life. Now it appears that Harris-Perry thinks that, after they’re born, children fundamentally belong to the state.

In this short commerical, Harris-Perry makes the case that we haven’t spent enough on education. She makes her case by attacking the notion that your children are yours. No, claims Harris-Perry, they belong to the state…er…”community.”
Narrating a new MSNBC “Lean Forward” spot, the Tulane professor laments that we in America  “haven’t had a very collective notion that these are our children.” “[W]e 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 their communities,” Harris-Perry argued.

Parents? Family?  Bah!  Society will raise these small humans you have incubated. The Government thanks you for your contribution.

Ideas have consequences, and they interact with other ideas. Among those fighting for prominence in our society today are: 1) Private citizens shouldn’t have access to weapons, 2) Marriage isn’t anything in particular except as the state defines, 3) Your children belong to the society, not you or your family, 4) The state will educate these children as it sees fit, 5) Government should be as big as possible, 6) It’s up to the government to save us from ourselves through the banning of sodas that are too large, because the people cannot be trusted….

….except in raising your kids, of course.
