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.
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.
Leftist arrogance and narcissism at its zenith. Liberals such as these want total control of you and your children. They believe that only they can make the best decisions for your child. Parents not only are too stupid to know what is best for their own children, but are being selfish by raising that child up without liberal approval and input. Parents simply must get out of the way of liberal indoctrination of their children if we are to live in a better world where liberals control all decisions and actions.
At least that's the Melisa Harris-Perry's of the world see it. MSNBC must see it that way too since they broadcast this pompous garbage.
