First it was Hillary Clinton who lectured to us about how “it takes a village to raise a child.”
Now, MSNBC host and professor of political science at Tulane University Melissa Harris-Perry goes one step further. Not only does it take a village to raise a child, your child belongs to the village and not to you!
Now read what you just heard her say, and let the words sink in:
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.
Don’t be fooled by her use of the warm-and-fuzzy word “community.” What she really means is “the state.”
Think about it: If your kids don’t belong to you but to “the community,” who will make the decisions (“better investments”) concerning your kids’ food, clothing, schooling, religion, entertainment, and socialization?
Will “the community” do that? How? Through voting in a communal meeting?
That would be cumbersome, time-consuming, unwieldy, and impractical.
So, in practice, it would be some governing body of “the community” that’ll make all those decisions concerning your kids.
In short, Melissa Harris-Perry is a COMMUNIST. What she is proposing is COMMUNISM.
That sure worked out well in Maoist China’s Great Commune Movement of the late 1950s, and in the 3-year nightmare called the Khmer Rouge’s Kampuchea….
By the way, this is the same sulphurous Melissa Harris-Perry who, on July 4, 2012, said: “The land on which [the Founders] formed the Union was stolen. The hands with which they built this nation were enslaved. The women who birthed the citizens of the nation are second class. This is the imperfect fabric of our nation. . . It’s ours, all of it. The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery.”
