MSNBC Anchor: "Children do not belong to their parents."

Original post made by !!! on Apr 8, 2013

Thank you MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry for finally revealing to America more about what the Democrat party stands for. Complete collectivism and the destruction of individualism and individual property rights. She goes on to say that children do not belong to their parents; that they belong to the collective.

Amazing. Socialism, Marxism, Communism...whatever collectivism you prefer to call it. These are the principles of the Democrat party and especially Obama.

America is in an existential battle for its soul and for freedom of the individual. God help us.

If you are a Democrat, do you believe in Harris-Perry's statement regarding children? If so, please explain.

I'm not a Democrat. But I know how to interpret an appeal for America as a community to care more for all of America's children, and to distinguish it from hair-brained attempts by some idiots (Sarah Palin) to link the appeal to some half-baked idea of Marxist, socialist collectivism. No wonder why conservatives commit suicide more frequently than do liberals. Knowing how to read and interpret does wonders for one's self-esteem -- and conservatives show a conspicuous deficit in this regard.

I am a democrat, and I don't believe that just because you own property, you are allowed to build a nuclear reactor on it or something like that, but I think this statement is creepy and idiotic.

It is also fairly scary for someone to refer to someone owning people. People own property. People don't own other people, at least not in this country.

The children belong to the community?

Actually, the children belong to themselves, they are individuals, and they aren't owned by anyone including their parents. They aren't property.

At the end of the video, I almost expected to hear "We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. Resistance if futile."

"At the end of the video, I almost expected to hear 'We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. Resistance if futile.'"

That's because you're actually not a Democrat and your head is filled up with all kinds of nonsense that comes from having watched too much t.v. in your lifetime.

Thanks once again to right wingers, for making it clear that you love ALL fetuses, but once born, if they are not your kids, then you could NOT care less about them, or what happens to them. Keep up the good work.

That's where you're wrong Danny Boy. Spank your children in public to test which one of us is wrong. Treat your child like a dog because its yours -- are we talking private property here, Dan? -- and see how fast members of your community (they call it community, dumb bunnies like you call it the collective) turn you in to social services. Try telling social services that your children are yours and that they should butt out. Yep, Period, End of story ... told by the village idiot.

Oh, Danny ... or try this. Try withholding your little darlings from school because, on your Fox-fed logic, the schools are collectivist socialists. See how long your children remain yours. Count me as one who ardently hopes that your children are rescued by the community from your private property fixated view of things.

And, of course, none of us actually expects you to respond to my argument. No, all you're capable of is throwing some mud my way. Why? Because you are not a very smart fellow. Period. End of story.

Ah...the resident f0ol with his worst-case scenario. So many strawman, I can't even keep count.

Had you taken the time to watch and listen, Ms. Harris-Perry is the one that says "collective" notion.

Now, go eat some soup and let the adults talk, tough guy.

Ouch...nice comeback, whoever you are.

There is no argument cl0wn, you didn't watch the video.

Gas indeed.

I wonder where else you lurk, genius?

Throwing mud my way...because you're not a very smart fellow? Really, Barry, Jane, etc.? Is this what you learn in those esteemed halls of the collectivist schools you flunked out of? Anger management? Good thing you limp wrested, pacifist types don't carry guns....you might go off half cocked anyway......then again.......
