The network released a promo video featuring Melissa Harris-Perry, host of a weekend morning MSNBC show and professor of political science at Tulane University, who says Americans must grow beyond the idea that children belong to their parents.
“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility,” Harris-Perry said. “We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.
“So part of it is, 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 everybody’s responsibility and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.” here
It’s much too easy and undeserving to dismiss the dismissible Harris-Perry (I have a problem with females who insist on carrying around Daddy’s name along with Hubby’s name. Trite and silly). It’s too easy to state how wrong she is on all levels, including moral and common sense. It’s too simple to say she’s a certifiable idiot when she’s much more – and “educated idiot” who thoroughly believes she knows it all when he knows nothing. A darkened mind, can no nothing.
Pardon my rant and hubris but this is beyond galling.
This is the same tripe that Hillary Clinton hoisted on us with her (ghost written) book, “It Takes A Village”. I have little doubt, that with the Clinton’s it did ‘take a village’ — neither of those two had the time nor inclination to raise a child. Poor Chelsea was probably used as ‘proof’ of marital relations’ and little more, as those two hungry, political clingers, were climbing the mountain of fame and power. But this idea of it “taking a village” isn’t from “stand by your man” Hillary or “what’s in a name” Perry — it’s straight out of the Communist Manifesto. Take the time and seek that fact out for yourself.
Part of the Marxist agenda is and always has been the destruction of the family and dependence on the State. Which follows precisely along the path of the Obama regime. . . the ‘primrose path’ of all serving Democrats. They’re Socialist to the core, as unwilling and fearful to admit it, as they all are. But, how often does a politician tell the truth? Unfortunately, not as often as a broken clock.
It take no “village”. It takes, as all thinking, common sense people understand — a mother and father. And the reason this is how children are produced! It has been designed by God for stability. Parents are to be the nurturers, the correctors and guilders making fully functioning, responsible adults. When followed properly, those adults have a chance and greater opportunity to function in a civilized society and appreciate God their creator.
When not followed, we end up with arrogant, selfish chaos and self seeking mental midgets who disavow God and godliness as they demand their own way. Which is where we are as a nation today.
It takes NO village. It takes Mom and Dad. Which is why God created that way.
