MSNBC: Your Kids Belong to the State
April 08, 2013
RUSH: Melissa Harris-Perry is a professor. I believe she's at Tulane. It's a major university, wherever she teaches. She's an African-American professor at Tulane. That's right. She also has a show on PMSNBC. Of course they've got this slogan over there called "Lean Forward" or some such thing. Hosts of their shows are cutting promos that they run on the network, and last week they began airing a new Lean Forward promo for her show, which airs on the weekends. This is that promo.
HARRIS-PERRY: 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. 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 households, then we start making better investments.
RUSH: There you have it. Now, I'm sure some of you hear this and you're livid, and you're outraged. The thing that I really want to impress upon you is that this is not far out. This is not new. It is not unusual. It used to be. Stuff like this used to be. If anybody five years ago or even two years ago had said this? "Whoa, whoa! It's really lunatic stuff," people would have said. "Oh, man, that is really extreme!" But it isn't new. What's new is that she has total confidence in saying it.
She's not worried that a majority of people are gonna disagree with this. But this is Marx-Engels, Communist Manifesto. The nuclear family has always been under attack by communists, by leftists. The nuclear family -- just like religion -- must be destroyed, and in its place, "the community," the collective. So while this is outrageous in its self-contained form, it isn't anything new. I guess one of the things that is the most frustrating to me is that liberalism and socialism and Marxism and this kind of stuff have been out there on display for people to see and recognize and accept as true for decades.
