Outrageous: MSNBC Host Says Children Belong to Community, Not Parents

By Bobby Eberle

It never ends. Just when you think MSNBC has gone off the deep end, it manages to go even further. Its slogan matches Barack Obama's campaign theme which is straight from the left-wing past. It doctored video on multiple occasions to paint conservatives in a poor light. Now, an MSNBC host is saying that children don't belong to parents but rather to the "state."

As Fox News reports, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry has come under fire for her comments regarding children. Apparently, to her, it's not the job of parents to raise their kids, it's the "community" that is responsible.

Here's the video in question:

The video ends with MSNBC's "Lean Forward" slogan, which goes right up my spine, but it's what she says that should make everyone wonder what's going on at MSNBC.

“The notion that children belong to a state government rather than their own flesh and blood is the most disturbing statement made in recent political times. Melissa Harris-Perry is dead wrong. It’s unfathomable that any true American could make such a pretentious and naively ill statement,” media communications expert, and parent, Angie Olszewski told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “The government can’t properly run their own budgets schools and public systems. Why would anybody think they could rear children?”

The Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis, Tim Graham, called the MSNBC spot "frightening.”

“It's bad enough that ‘Lean Forward’ already sounds like an ad for Mao's Little Red Book, then to have your network's hosts talk about your children being part of the Collective is just spooky,” he said. “I think most parents disappoint MSNBC with their traditional beliefs that their children are theirs to love and raise as they feel is best. They don't want to surrender their parental rights to the ‘village.’ It's this same contempt for education beginning in the home that spurs many parents into home-schooling.”

Those on the left are on a mission, and that mission basically will result in the end of America as we know it. Anything.... and I do mean ANYTHING that people turn to for support, stability, tradition, comfort, and so on is under attack. It doesn't matter if it's God or marriage or families with a mother and a father or raising children, the only thing far-left liberals want is for you to rely on government.

It's a scary notion, but we see it happening all around. As for this "commercial," I think left-wingers make a serious mistake when they try to size-up the American people. We are not about to let the "community" raise our kids, just as we are not about to let the ourselves be disarmed so that our only "protection" comes from government.

My kids are MY kids, and the sooner we get these far left influences out of Washington and off the air, the better we all will be.

    Pay close attention America! This women has told us what she and the other leftists really want our country to be. The leftist progressives have never been more bold or honest about their agenda than under Obama.

    Remember Hillary Clinton and her “it takes a village to raise a child?” Hillary has the same socialist leanings but she has been very careful not to make an issue of this for now anyway.

    Hillary Clinton will receive the next Democrat nomination for President. If she wins, we will continue down the same socialist road we are on now as a nation. It is of the utmost importance for conservatives to identify Hillary Clinton as an extreme leftist progressive as early as possible in the election cycle.

      It takes a village to raise a child only if that child is born the village idiot of parents tooo lazy or incompetent to do the job themselves to protect and keep the community gene pool clean of socialist contamination that turns it into a sewer. Americans were bred not to be dependent idoits but self governing individuals whose rights are above the viilage whose idiots can only feed off of those who excel and turn the entire nation into the village of the damned.

    Why the outrage, why the surprise, of course to Liberals like Melissa Harris-Perry, their children do not belong to parents like Melissa Harris-Perry or they would have to step up to the plate like adults and take responsibility for raising and sacrificing and doing all the things REAL parents do to raise quality human beings which is the very reason the quality of humanity that comes from the party of enablement is so low, so lacking any ability to contribute because they surrender the futures of their children for the pleasures of their own immediate gratifications as quickly as they surrender their own personal dignity for the edification of the irresponsible collective over the responsible individual. Their self-chosen Socialist government collectives become their delusional safe place where they lock up their hearts and their dignity for safe keeping. But these are not safes, they are prisons which separate themselves from their own destinies to become honorable men and women who were designed to lives of individual personal freedom. When you run and hide from your own personal responsibility to create an exceptional life of excellence, to hide within your government socialist collective of losers, of course your children never get the opportunity to acquire the skills of self-sustenance and ability to govern self which is the basic entity needed for self government. From their own mouths they condemn themselves and reveal just why it is that Liberals and their ideology are so Anti-American in spirit and why they are not only unfit, but incapable to lead a nation of SELF-governing people. On the one hand they manipulate people to vote for them “For the sake of the Children” then act like absentee parents who instead of raising the kids themselves at home in personal investment, they just farm them out to Liberal boarding schools and day care centers to be raised by disinterested liberal mind manipulators with an agenda. The agenda of course is to raise children, dependent upon governmetn of course, where REAL parents understand it their job to raise an adult that can actually contribute, not just consume America and her wealth. Just how’s that working for you America?

      Au contraire, cantius. You guys have GOT to get on board with studying the enemy’s doctrine. Even Rush blew her off as if he’d never heard of her. I was torn between mild and genuine fear. MHP is a MAJOR voice on MSNBCommunistTV, second only to I’m-so-hip-n-gay Rachel Maddow. Laugh & sneer all you want and then curl up in a nice warm blanket of Fox bragging about their ratings. In the meantime, the Lean Forward ads are inspiring and “hopeful” sounding. Perry has perky balanced panels compared to Hannity rehashing his same tired Talking Points (which are often wrong) then pushing his same black conservatives, blond women around until they all concede his vague, unresearched points; O’Reilly bullies the same tired straw opponents; lefty Shep Smith is redundant in following Baier (who has the best show although he could use a new guest or two); Megyn Kelly is a cheerleader and needs to join Gretchen Carlson in making coffee; The Five is a waste of prime time. Get rid of Eric Bolling’s superior white male Catholic moralizing, Kim Guilfoyle’s Jersey Shore dresses & strategically-placed legs, Beckel is absolutely sickening but let him finish a sentence, paint himself into a corner, then skewer him. Dana has her WH press experience which she should use to educate the viewers instead of talking about Jasper. Greg & Andrea seem to be the only ones who do their homework and bring a real-world perspective in. Fox & Friends is like the Today Show-stop goofing around people! We need Fox but Roger could take some programming advice from MSNBC. No more Karl Rove, Alan Colmes or Juan Williams! Let’s have Tucker Carlson moderate a serious foreign affairs panel w/Bolton, Krauthammer, Mark Steyn, Max Boot, Victor Davis Hanson. Where’s the young pretty Hispanic woman from some caucus at either the NR or GOP gathering post-election? She could moderate a panel on conservative/ moderate social & women’s issues. No more b****y ultra conservative blondes like Ann Coulter! Amazed to see the same old country club line up at Fox after the messaging drubbing we took. Bring back Glenn Beck: he apparently had the research staff to educate us on George Soros, MediaMMatters, Saul Alinsky, Islam real facts for a real war. Sun Tzu: know your enemy. Watch a MHP panel on Sunday – you will learn a ton about their way of thinking SNF their seductive tactics. Come on troops, this isn’t time to sit in out foxholes smoking. The comments on this site alone qualify for a note valuable panel than anything Roger Aisles is giving us. The job of Fox is not just to provide the real news and not the edited left version but to give the people enough facts to argue down the libtards as well as to recognize THEIR tricks and shoot them down mid-air.

      That would be fine … EXCEPT … she is an idiot in a position of filling the minds of empty-headed voters with such idiotic notions that they will then vote to advance such idiocy en route to eradicating the nature of our country into the socialistic one that is trying to be advanced at an alarming rate.

      This thing is “picking up steam” in ways that we once would dismiss as “isolated” … it is no longer isolated, it is being perpetuated, and it is being accepted more and more everyday by those who are not discerning the idiocy of it.

      It might be an “idiot” speaking, but ignorant fools are listening to and then voting in context with it. So, do you think we have more “discerning” voters, or “idiot followers” in the voting ranks of America … and which way is it trending?

      While she may be an idiot … she has a following (cult if you like) that listens to her and then perpetuates and advances such idiocy. Granted, she isn’t alone, but the message isn’t getting weaker, it is getting bolder in its presentation, and weak minded voters listen to her garbage … and vote accordingly.

      Dismissing this is dangerous. We’ve dismissed it for far too long and the slippery slope has gotten it to where it has taken this much root. Continuing to dismiss the likes of her will only allow for them to continue marching down the slippery slope. The voter base is already at a pivotal point.

      Ignoring the continued impact of such idiotic rhetoric is folly for us to do, as it will only allow for them to advance from pivotal, to powerful. If we don’t push back now, then when it becomes “oh c r a p”, it’s even harder to regain lost ground.

      Agenda and propaganda are good friends … that aren’t good for good people.

      Exactly right, rustypat. If I were a young, college-going person who hadn’t been around the world with the military, seeing Communism & the Third World & Muslim theocracy for myself, I might tune into Rachel Maddow and MHP, along with Jon Stewart (which is where most young people admit they get their news from) as opposed to the old arrogant crabs on Fox or the snotty women who shrug their shoulders and make snarky little remarks to display their superiority (Megyn: “CurrentTV? Whoever heard of that?” Really, Megyn? Because they had an excellent series on the Mexican Cartels that I didn’t see Fox doing.) And if you watch Fox all day, by the time you get to Hannity it is THE SAME SHOW ALL DAY LONG! And the same congressmen, the same token liberals …Karl Rove and his whiteboard probably encouraged 3 million conservatives to sit out the election because they thought we had it in the bag. Everyone kept talking about the bad economy because the polls were telling them that’s what people cared about. Well, when you have the first black president, get a clue that the polls are lying. There were no conservative ads for Romney that showed what an anti-gun advocate Obama was; no ads about Common Core curriculum; no hints of socialism i.e. repeating “redistribution of wealth” over and over; no doctors explaining what Obamacare was going to do to our healthcare industry; no discussion of what Big Business does for charities, for women and minorities or immigrants-nothing but complicated unimaginative GOP-speak. Rove and Romney’s strategists completely missed the Red Dawn scenario that would’ve scared the conservative or independent voters enough to get up and vote, at least AGAINST Obama in case Romney wasn’t pro-life or Christan enough for them. I watched a lot of tv then and the only commercial that I remember resonating over and over was Romney promising to shut down Planned Parenthood and overturn Roe V Wade. Really? Is that our priority right now? And how are Republican states using the capital they are earning day by day as the truth about Obama comes out? Passing draconian abortion legislation. I appreciate the sentiment, whether religious or moral, and same regarding homosexual marriage/unions, but we have got to prioritize and learn how to win the Communications Jihad before we turn into Great Britain and Canada and this entire site is shut down for hate speech.

      You are sooooo right about your description of Fox News personalities. I watch it but I’m continually thinking that it is dumbed down for I don’t know who. Does Aires think the conservatives are this dense? We (conservatives) do need some smart talk show people who can really express the core of conservatism without all this baloney. If we kkeep up the current messageing strategy we are doomed to lose all future elections.

    Typical belief and mindset of the communist liberals. Everyone belongs to the state; no individual liberties or private property. The state (Federal Government) wants complete control over every aspect of our lives. Why don’t they just move to China, North Korea, or Cuba where it already exists?

      Like most conservatives, I have been busy just trying to make an honest living and become an educated & decent American citizen. The biggest social activism I’ve ever taken part in is riding with Patriot Guard in honor of returning or fallen veterans & Pete Hegseth’s Vets for Freedom DC meet with our congressmen (news flash: they don’t want to hear what real vets have to tell them about Iraq & Afghanistan). Conservatives don’t mob up, screaming and waving signs, we view that behavior as childish & bordering on anarchy. But I never dreamt that I would finally retire from the military, after living half my life under that sworn oath, and find myself completely surrounded by Marxists/Islamists controlling all 3 branches of gov’t, the Fourth Estate, the public schools-virtually all aspects of our lives right out in the open and apparently with the fawning support of almost half the population. I guess I don’t get to sit around on the beach reading Tocqueville as I planned. It’s time to fight and I’m relieved to discover a large number of extremely well-read and passionate patriots out there. But please stop talking about the guns you own and plan to use! Keep your heads down and your powder dry.

I would prefer to educate the populace into removing any Marxist/Islamist elements through legally appropriate means.

    Melissa Harris-Perry needs to move to Cuba and spread her ignorance where it is practiced. I learned this from a Cuban refugee. They take children from their parents early in life and put them in buildings with beds placed side by side, separating the boys from the girls. The girls get one doll and the boys get one toy. Their communistic endoctrination begins by the State controlled schools. They are allowed to go home on week-ends. They are also expected to tell what their parents are doing and saying. If our government officials think that is a good way to raise children, they all need to visit countries like Cuba,China, N. Korea, Russia and see if their life is so grand. Control and power seems to be the way this administration wants to run our country. We can’t let this happen. We need God’s healing power over our land by putting Him first in our lives.

    First the government pays to make sure no one gets pregnant in the first place by paying for contraceptives

    Second, the government then makes sure the morning after pill is available for all who ask

    Third, failing all else to stop a pregnancy, the government then will encourage an abortion

    Fourth, if it is late term and the macabre science of their killing machine lets one get threw, on the abortionist table, they think they still have a right to kill the child

    And these people, after spending the last nine months doing their best to kill babies, think they are in any way fit to fight for the life of a child?

    Given their history, it is most likely a ploy to provide body parts for Obamacare, because nothing in their past actions remotely suggest they care at all about the life of children.

    We also have the feigned affection and compassion, after killing hundreds of children with weapons of war, teary eyed for twenty is used as an excuse to take the people’s defense from their hands so the government can place them at its mercy.

    This idea of giving up one’s children to be raised (indoctrinated) by the “community” is typical of the Nazi strategy, the communist collective concepts, and much of the Muslim culture where the children are required to attend heavily radicalized schools. The attitude shown by Harris-Perry in the video is baseline within our public education but is just beginning to be exposed under the Obama administration as these radical elements feel empowered to “come out” and admit their policies and agenda and the expansion of government influence and control over our children is a basic tenant of their ideology.

    What is obvious about giving those running public education and who have embraced the “nanny state” government concept of the role of government is that all of them are liberals who do not embrace the American idea of individual freedom and self responsibility. Many of these very vocal personalities represent the segments of our population that have failed in their responsibilities as parents and family and are looking for an easy way out of their predicaments. For example, the failure of the inner cities to deal with high crime rates, high levels of children being raised in single parent families, high levels of unemployment, high levels of children dropping out of school, high level of unwed pregnancies, the lowest levels of average family income and the highest levels of people on welfare and food stamps are willing to give government control of their lives as they have no other viable options looking forward. Those raised in these environments are used to being dependent on government for subsidies to provide the basics in life.

    These areas within our country have gone from viable and prosperous parts of the country in the early days to dangerous areas within our urban areas where even law enforcement agencies are afraid to enter at certain times of the day. The drug trade and other illegal criminal activities base their businesses in these areas and compete with each other for control. The public schools in these areas have trouble staffing their teacher needs as these jobs are dangerous particularly for women who are afraid of being attacked by aggressive male students.

    These high population areas within our country are dominating public policy under the Obama administration as the Democrats have convinced the voting public in these areas to vote for them to protect their government checks which they have used to build a life around for decades. We now have over a 100 million on welfare and over 50 million on food stamps. One in five children live in poverty in our country and most of them live in our inner cities. These kids are primarily members of minority families, mostly African American and Hispanic families who have failed to break out of generations of poverty within their communities in spite of billions of dollars of government “investment”.

    So…the answer to this outrageous and growing problem is to give the government more control over the raising of our children according to what we are hearing. Send our kids to some form of government controlled dormitories located away from daily contact with parents and family to help them develop “designed” set of values and ideology. Sounds like nazism, communism, or one of the other extremist philosophies within the world at large…but…it is not an American philosophy. WE decide to have children, and WE look forward to raising our kids as a member of our families and absolutely oppose government or outside intervention into this primary responsibility of being a parent.

    So, to me, this push by Obamaites to expand government control over our lives is primarily based on the failures of those Americans within minority groups to do the job themselves and who desperately need a way out of their predicament, but we should not be using this problem to transform America into a socialist country. The answer to these problems is not more government interference in our personal lives at large and bringing the country to its knees financially. The first step is to get our private economy growing and creating good jobs for everyone capable of earning a living. The Obama administration has failed America as it refuses to listen to those that know how to turn things around because it is contrary to their ideology and special interest controllers.

    Too Bad.

      You’ve covered everything very well, JDZ. That’s exactly what is happening. They fail and once again, we should all pay. Everyone gets a trophy, everyone gets punished. Oh but wait, this program is not going to include us going into the ghettos or barrios and yanking those kids out of drug-infested rat holes where they watch “Scarface” all day instead of reading books. When Obama was forced to face true gun violence in Chicago after the murder of Hadiya Pendleton, he rather bravely said something about marriage and family. MHP’s response to that was to be insulted because she was once a single mother and her mother was a single mother and she thinks they all did a bang up job. So even when one of their own tries to encourage a better way out, they reject it because it clashes with their entire liberal narrative which includes empowering single women from the age of 12 to be sexually dominant and active and produce children who will be taken care of by the state. I never reached that point where I felt financially secure enough to have children, so I missed the opportunity. For someone to assume that it’s okay to have a child before you are able to raise it correctly, feed and clothe it, read to it, provide it with a mother and a father, and pay the bills, is exactly what’s wrong with this society and it started in the 60s. And BTW, read current Playboy if you want to see a ultra-liberal rag supporting the awful results of everything they encouraged. One article even marveled at the continued homage paid to “Scarface” by young ethnic males. Yeah, Playboy, that’s really good for them.

      Mussolini literally BOUGHT Italian children very early and often after his march on Rome and had state orphanages raise them until they were ready for invading Ethiopia. I saw this and film footage of it in an educational film on Mussolini with an opening by Romano, his son and an accomplished jazz pianist. Romano married Sophia Loren’s sister, and Romano’s daughter Alessandra was helped by Sophia to get acting and modeling parts. Now, Alessandrg has revived her gramp’s Fascist Party and is a representative in the European Parliament. I wonder if Melissa would change her mind if she read this comment, or read John Hersey’s The Child Buyer? Probably not. I guess that’s why the other Perry, Rick, thinks offering gardasil to nine year old girls is cool too. I’ll retire to bedlam.

    She must be looking at the inner city and the compassion-driven absurdity of 41% of America’s children born to single mothers who are then raised in a drug-infested environment of crime and violence. She is looking for a better solution, but her solution is the Nazi-Communist solution of not leaving these children with their mothers to become the next generation of poverty driven Democratic voters, but get them out of the ghetto and perhaps learn skills and an attitude that will make them productive members of society. Right now they are a squandered human resource. But there are other solutions to the problem.

    Our nation has slowly drifted into a situation where compassionate social workers with access to “very deep pockets” and politicians without foresight have led our nation into this mess. So how do we get out of it?

    The first step in solving any problem is to define it and recognize the forces which are causing it. Let us imagine some inner-city 12 year old who gets pregnant. What are her choices and why did she get pregnant? Until government removed the consequences she had only two choices once she became pregnant: put the child up for adoption or have an abortion. But why did she get pregnant in the first place? Simple, under the influence of her toxic environment she didn’t visualize herself as an individual, but as a member of the typical teenage group. If her group thought sex was cool and it was what TV, the movies and other teenage role models were doing, what was wrong with her enjoying it? At the same time this 12-year old was left with her group to decide what was proper behavior, the feminist movement was preaching that women need to pursue a career path and not be tied down to being merely a housewife, perhaps appropriate advice for some, but not for all. This path created another destructive force that eroded the family and parental responsibility. Gradually, this evolved into “The Projects” where numerous single mothers who were living on entitlements had ever more children and there were no fathers in a traditional sense or a family unit, just sperm donors flitting from woman to woman and away from social and financial responsibility.

    This situation is unsustainable, bur what politician wants to admit it when they get a 95% vote from those on entitlements to continue them.

    But Obamacare may offer a solution. If free birth control is available. we can return to the old system of individual responsibility; both the mother and her sperm donor had access to birth control so if they chose not to use what is available, they are on their own and the taxpayers are off the hook for their child’s lifetime of care.

    If anyone or any organization still advocates policies that cost the taxpayers, let them be taxed to support that position!

    “We are not about to let the “community” raise our kids,”

    Really? Lovely sentiment, but about 50 years too late. It had already started when we were raising our kids, which is why we put them in private school, and most of our grandkids were home schooled. This juggernaught is well on its way, I fear.

    In case anyone is under the impression that this isn’t already in play, let me ask you what power or authority do you really have if a government HHS agent is knocking on your door to interrogate then confiscate your children?

    All it takes is a phone call from a disgruntled neighbor, anonymously of course, to have your children taken from you by government strangers, indefinitely.

    How could this possibly be if government hasn’t already claimed all children as their certified property. Certified by the parents, certified by the hospital, and certified by the government document every parent signs at birth to unwittingly transfer their god-given guardianship to a government of soulless profiteers.

    Not only are children government property, but so are adults. If a stranger can write up some nonsense legislation and apply it to men against their will then those men are the property of those strangers. At any time, government can confiscate their (human) property, charge it, try it, convict it, sentence it and warehouse it, with every step of the process profiting the government men. If government is having a good day, they can murder it.

    Additionally, all physical property, including land, is government property. At any time government can break down your door, take all of your possessions, trump up some ridiculous charges (e.g. you are a terrorist!) and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. That’s because government figures that the property of their slaves is ultimately their property.

    Now, go out and vote, sing that song and wave that rag like good little servants to murderers and thieves. Politicians, lying lawyers and bureaucrats are all upstanding and trustworthy, so support them with all of your heart, soul, and ultimately life. It is what you have been programmed to do.

      It’s part of the gender neutrification agenda they have, where all these confused kids now say, “I IDENTIFY as [lesbian] [Congolese Liberation Army soldier]” instead of having to just be what and who they are. So we have no control of our children by naming them Betsy and putting them in pink if the State wants to put them in beige and name them Cutter and encourage them to identify with whatever they want whenever they feel adventerous. By not “identifying” with a parent or a family and their values/moral codes, they’re wide open to the influences of the State. Just like Glenn Beck brought up the other day: hundreds of thousands of psychotherapists, life coaches, medications, etc. compared to the 50s when we had families and churches to do all that stuff the natural way. The whole thing makes me sick. Especially that it’s working out so well for them and destroying a world we once felt pride of association with. Now we’re becoming refugees in our own country.

      This is weird then, i think she’s schizo. Check ouit NewsBusters March 23 “Harris-Perry’s Fetal Indifference.” She says, after cracking open an embryo model, “When you’re talking about what it actually costs to have this thing turn into a human, why not allow women to make the best choices that we can make with as many resources and options instead of trying to come in and regulate the process?” So let them go be free to reproduce with abandon and then the State should take over?

    Pierce v. Society of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary
    In Pierce v. Society of the Sisters, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that “the fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments of this Union repose excludes any general power of the state to standardize its children by forcing them to accept instruction from public teachers only. The child is not the creature of the state.”

      Gabrielle Syme: Thank you for FACTS-the most invaluable part of arguing and winning a war of communication! I am cutting and pasting (without your name if that’s ok) the law and forwarding to Michele Malkin as she and Glenn Beck are very involved in fighting the Core Curriculum battle. I urge others who are interested in that fight, which I argue, is the FOUNDATION of our fight as it involves what’s left of the un-brainwashed youth of our future. When are we going to start marching on Washington again? Glenn Beck (whether you like him or not) got the biggest rally of conservatives in modern history-we need more of that.

      nordite, I’m glad I haven’t eaten yet. Not all of us on this site are Christians, and Christianity doesn’t teach one to turn other people’s kids into some sort of socialistic public good a la Samuelson. You take Lez Warren one step further and instead of saying that each of us “benefit” (yeah, RIGHT, moron) from the government’s actions (from taxes they stole from us in the FIRST place?!), you go further and say that because our CHILDREN “benefit” (yeah, RIGHT, moron) from the government’s actions (from taxes they stole from us in the FIRST place, once again), that OUR kids are now actually YOUR kids. Well, to perverted chickenhawks like YOU, nordite, and like Melissa Perry-Harris and that OTHER perverted Perry whose first name is Rick (trying to shove gardasil on my nine year old daughter because he got a campaign contribution from the company that makes gardasil), and to Lez Warren, and to that GRANDMASTER PERVERTED CHICKENHAWK, Barack Obama, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OF OUR KIDS. AND our guns. AND our wallets. OR ELSE! BY THE WAY nordite, CHRIST HIMSELF said quite a FEW things about folks like you who want to get your hands on our kids. He said you’d be better off putting a millstone around your neck and jumping into the sea. Hey, nordite, that sounds like a good idea for you and Melissa Perry-Harris and Rick Perry and Lez Warren and BO. Why don’t you go do that, take a mile walk on a half-mile pier? We’re DONE with you ALL. YOU “just stop it.” WE’RE not the ones who are “really so stupid” – YOU are. WE’LL continue fighting subhumanoid life forms like all y’all BECAUSE of our Christian faith. YOU, on the other hand, probably subscribe to the so-called Metropolitan Community Church.

    My children BELONG to ME and my wife and WE RAISE our Children in the way they should go. Now while I agree that there is good & bad in all of us, look at the “NUMBERS”! The Parents can’t do it and that why the Penal Institutions are near or over flowing in CAPACITY…

    The Federal Register is a good place to start reading…I think that’s the name of it.

    I was Federal Correctional employed. I know many like that. My neighbor was Juvenile Detention. The place was full. Really trying to be CORRECT here. Not calling names. But where I live, you don’t want to go to the neighboring town after dark or the next one to that one. 14 year olds are killing people for not giving the $$…at Gas Stations, Breaking/Entering…

    The more Liberals separate themselves from the Socialists and the Hitler concepts, the more they are indistinguishable from the ideologies that created war in the 1930s and 40s!

    The clamoring of this Melissa Harris-Perry make me curious about her ability to reason. Just how is the DNA of the socialist society more linked to a child than its parents? How would she feel if her daughter (or the Obama children Malia and Sasha) was taken from her into an Islamic society to wear the burqa, married in early puberty and had her books, education and dreams taken away by the society it radical clerics? Or perhaps married to a bin Laden type who would throw her in front of a hail of bullets to save himself?

    Perhaps Melissa Harris-Perry is right. If you are willing to sacrifice your child’s drive to accomplish and self-worth, then you want society to lavishly shower them with all the fine things of the world that someone else is always paying for.

    Maybe one of these super bright liberals can answer this. If you cannot print more gold, silver, or platinim to stabilize the dominant currencies of the world, at what point will Bernanke’s presses be printing worthless? Clue: The price of gasoline is around $4 a gallon. If the presses had stopped in 2009, the price of gasoline would be near $2 a gallon!

The idea of the liberal democrats that government is the be all, end all for the entire country is not new. This has had the basis being laid for 70 years. Now they are building on that base.

    Government has to control EVERYTHING! But it can’t if the masses are armed.
