WATCH: Mia Love Slams MSNBC's Harris-Perry for Insisting That Kids Belong to Community, Not Parents

By Ken Shepherd | September 27, 2013

In April 2013, we noticed a patently absurd Lean Forward promo spot by MSNBC weekend host and Tulane University professor Melissa Harris-Perry, wherein she argued that we need to think of kids not as belonging to their families under the care of their parents but rather belong to their communities, under, well, the care of the community (read: the state). That comment was the hands-down audience favorite among the nominees for the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis at the Media Research Center's 2013 Gala dinner held Thursday night.

Accepting the award in mockery of Ms. Harris-Perry, Mayor Mia Love (R-Saratoga Spring, Utah) gave a short but very powerful speech about the values that her parents, not her "community" instilled in her, which helped make her a self-sufficient, independent woman who, by the way, is a Democrat's nightmare." To watch the full video for the Dan Rather Memorial Award segment, click on the play button below the page break; Love's remarks begin about 13:55 into the video, but presenter Chris Plante's remarks are also worth watching.

If one wants to see what kids who belong to "the community" and not their parents look like, one need only wander through the public housing ghettos in any major city.  Trust me, they ain't goin' to Princeton anytime soon.

Stunning. Stunningly stupid! I've never heard anything quite so dangerously contemptuous of the Constitution, disdainful of parental prerogative, arrogant and insulting, delivered in such a brazen, smug and contemptible manner. They're actually proud of her analysis!

Melissa Harris-Perry and MSNBC are suggesting we Lean Forward...and grab our ankles! Well, they can just kiss it!
