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.
