MSNBC: Your Kids Don’t Belong to You

The fact that this sort of collectivist, progressive agitprop can be trotted out in open company, let alone on television by a major network, shows once again how far we have gone down into the moral shitter.  h/t Liberty Blitzkrieg

This is such an incredibly creepy video it’s actually hard for me to believe it’s real. Professor of political science at Tulane University and MSNBC host, Melissa Harris-Perry states the following:

“…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. Once it’s everyone’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.”

This clip is very important because it really demonstrates the mentality of a statist. They want to run your lives in every way you can possibly imagine, including the upbringing of your children. Outrageous.

Now, call me a knuckle-dragging troglodyte for asking the obvious question, but, why does it seem that so many of these verbose, energetic progressive wack-jobs come from atypical home backgrounds?  I.e. Of Melissa Harris-Perry (the hyphenation thing we’ll save for a later diatribe) Wikipedia reports:

…Melissa Victoria Harris was born in Seattle and grew up in the Virginia cities of Charlottesville and Chester, where she attended Thomas Dale High School. Part of a mixed family[citation needed], she is the youngest of five children. Her black father, William M. Harris Sr., was dean of Afro-American affairs at the University of Virginia, and her white mother, Diana Gray, taught at a community college and worked for nonprofits that helped poor communities.[3][4] Her mother was raised in a Mormon working-class family in a racially homogeneous neighborhood and went to college at Brigham Young University. After a failed first marriage, her mother left the LDS Church and was a single mother before she met Melissa’s father.[5] “I’ve never thought of myself as biracial,” Harris-Perry says. “I’m black.”[6] Harris-Perry’s family later became Unitarian Universalists.…”

OK, not horrific but a little weird, and not exactly what the majority of Americans were reared under either.  Similarly with Barak Obama, or Elena Kagan, or Sonya Sotomayor, and on and on and on.  Thus I believe that progressivism may have at its core a psychological foundation rooted in a home life that was too far outside the bell curve, or at least far enough beyond the normal range of the human developmental experience for a more ‘normal’ world view to obtain in adulthood.

    The MSNBC video is too degenerate. I viewed it earlier this morning and it is rank with base. How MSNBC could ever hang their hat on a report like that and state legitimately that it is journalism, is beyond belief. Arrogance, and Socialism. Training more generations to have abortions, use drugs, live out their lives in prison or as wards of a welfare system, rather than teaching dignity, respect and hard work. Typical tear-jerkers at MSNBC.

    But B, I do believe that these progressive, collectivist libtards do have good intentions – most of them anyway. The problem is they are arrogant, fucking idiots but – worse – they have a philosophical disconnect with folks like us militant libertarian conservative thinkers:

    They mistakenly believe that individual prosperity and wellness follows as an effect caused by a healthy collective. This can be achieved only be restrictions on personal freedoms and usurpation of individual wealth…

    We correctly believe that that social prosperity and wellness follows as an effect caused by healthy, free and responsible sovereign individuals. This can be achieved only by restrictions on government / collective authority and wealth.

    We are correct. They are wrong.
    They are in control or nearly so. We are in trouble.

    As I’ve said in the past, I used to be an administrator for community mental health. One of the things that drove me crazy was the belief among many, if not most, of the children’s therapists and social workers that children did not belong to their parents. Even functional families were suspect and quite a few of these nannies felt that we should all be investigated “for the good of the children”. Of course, the point I often made was how would they feel if THEY were under investigation. They always insisted that they had been well-psychoanalyzed and were therefore highly qualified to raise children.

    Remember there are real people behind what this woman says.
