It Takes A Village Idiot To Say Kids Belong To State
Investor's Business Daily ^ | April 9, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 04/09/2013 3:48:39 PM PDT by raptor22

Family: An MSNBC contributor revisits the statist notion that while you gave birth to your children and feed and clothe them, they are only on loan to you by their true parent — a benevolent and all-knowing government.

Melissa Harris-Perry, an African-American professor at Tulane, has endorsed the concept of human ownership by the state, something we thought history would teach her is a bad thing, saying in a promo for MSNBC that "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.

"We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we've always had a private notion of children; your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children," Harris-Perry opined.

Our children? It is an idea most famously expressed in recent years by Hillary Clinton in her 1990s best-seller, "It Takes A Village," but it is hardly a new idea.

Collectivists throughout history have said that children do and should belong to the state and that if you control the children, you control the future.

One well-known collectivist echoed such sentiments when he said, "Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state. The state will take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing. Your child belongs to us already... what are you?"

So said Adolf Hitler, who founded a sate-run youth group that bore his name.

When they say the kids don’t belong to the parent,, i wonder if she intends for ME to have an increased say in what her kids are taught?

Or is it only that SHE and her ilk get to indoctrinate mine?

These are Marxists speaking. They believe this stuff as deeply as anyone can imagine. It is at their core that the state should be supreme. Remember Hillary’s, It Takes a Village?

I know I should not be but every day I am more amazed at how far they go. Each day brings at least one more sign that while we have been earning a living (asleep at the switch?)they have been undermining our country. I’m an old guy on the downward side of life and will probably not see the final transformation/showdown or how it will turn out. I weep for my country and all of our families that may never have the freedom that I have had.
I do not weep for those that have put us in this position.

Village Idiots. Describes the entire cast of MSNBC. It has gotten to the point when a thread about Tingles, Madcow or the other absurd morons who get a paycheck from MSNBC to say the most utterly absurd moronic thing, I won’t waste my time on them anyone. To me a MSNBC host is like a vile, nasty whore riddled with the most repulsive STDs. They are nasty, nasty people.

Melissa Hairy Parry says, “I don’t have any kids because I’ve had 17 abortions.” “But IF I had kids I would do like all those other girls that do have them and make OUR BROTHER in the WH PAY for them.”

Correctamundo.

One huge tactical advantage evil people have always enjoyed in the public forum, whether as flimflam artists and criminals or as politicians (but I repeat myself), is the human psychological phenomenon of transference.

Call John Gacy an evil man in a public meeting and, absent a few dead bodies lying at his feet, most of the public will turn on you and decide that the messenger is the sociopath and a continental liar besides, and discount everything you are saying.

People don't like to change their opinion of someone who has "gotten to them", "gotten in their face" and "made the sale". They will whip your ass for trying to turn them around and save them from their contract with Mephistophilis.

It seems to me that there was this guy starting out in Germany in the thirties that had a similar opinion about children. I don’t think that turned out well either.

We have some in our family at the same stage as you, saying these same things.
It is heartbreaking to know what they’ve lived thru, served our country, marveled at grandchildren taking up the mantle, but get really down from time to time - since 2009 to be sure...

It helps only a little to remember ‘life was not promised to be fair. . . ‘

Not a Bible scholar, but understand ‘it’s’ all there - -

A sort of banal, well-intentioned, touchy-feely evil, but still evil.

Do you consider that a proof of the saving power of God’s grace, or of the character-building nature of mandatory membership in the Hitler Youth?

We have never expected life to be fair & we did expect that one day our country would go the way of the Roman Empire. We did not expect the avalanche to come this quickly. The last ten years have had more effect on our culture than all of the years before it. Their plans are coming to fruition. We did not stop them.
Now we will see if there is enough backbone left in us to stop the avalanche.
The time has arrived.
I did not intend to ramble on like this but we are truly perplexed by the situation & like many others we are ready to defend our constitution.

You are not rambling.

We’d like to know the definition of ‘they’ and ‘their’ from someone.
We are also perplexed. It does seem like an all-of-a-sudden avalanche.

Keep remembering McCain, was it, saying we had ‘nothing to fear’ with a BHO presidency. What the ‘h’ made him say that???
Was it code or something for ‘heads up?’
And Cheney’s wicked side-long glance at BHO at the first inaguration - priceless.
Convinced these men knew/know something - that’s probably not a revelation to many!

And how are some folks prepped/prepping to defend the constitution - ?

It had better be the former, or we are deeply screwed.

I suppose that some character was built in some young men in the Hitler Youth .... but probably not in the ones who were victimized by the sadistic pederasts in the SA command staff, who used the Hitler Youth as a kind of seraglio.

At least until Hitler ordered Himmler to assassinate all the leading Brown Shirts.
