Following what she describes as a flood of vitriolic responses from conservatives outraged at the implication that the state should have more responsibility for child-rearing than individual parents and families, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry took to the pages of MSNBC.com to mock concerns about the network promos implications. She said that conservatives fears may be illogically rooted in the fact that America has, in the past, seized and re-educated the children of African slaves and Native Americans.
One thing is for sure: I have no intention of apologizing for saying that our children, all of our children, are part of more than our households, they are part of our communities and deserve to have the care, attention, resources, respect and opportunities of those communities, Harris-Perry wrote after informing her audience of her intention to double down on the statements she made in the MSNBC network promo.
When the flood of vitriolic responses to the ad began, my first reaction was relief. I had spent the entire day grading papers and was relieved that since these children were not my responsibility, I could simply mail the students papers to their moms and dads to grade! But of course, that is a ridiculous notion. As a teacher, I have unique responsibilities to the students in my classroom at Tulane University, and I embrace those responsibilities. It is why I love my job....

Just remember: when you take Harris-Perry and make it an anagram, and add an otter, it becomes...
Turning the Kiddies into what they want.
Ms. Perry what is your profession? ans. Negro
The children are all our children unless it comes to abortion (baby murder).
The culture war’s on, folks.
Only, Mzzz Hyphenated-Woman makes the opposition’s case by her reference to slavery & the auctioning of children. If enslaved people had no control over their lives & those of their children due to the use of brutal authority, why does she want the same thing now?
And...I sense a little fascistic glee on her part over the reaction of those (nasty racist sexist bigot homophobe) conservatives who oppose her views. Almost sounds like “You say you oppose our agenda. Who are you? We already own your children; your backward views will die off when you do.”
Madam, your words were belong to.
We are all part of our communities... and our kids belong to us.
Tyrant Kim Un Hussein must be very pleased that his efforts to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are progressing so easily.
She is confusing DOING HER JOB (grading papers) that THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY ‘OWN’ THE CHILDREN(their parents) PAY HER TO DO(through taxes) with a transfer of ownership from them to her.
Uhhh...slavery (and the KKK) were/are democrat institutions and let’s not forget that most of the original push to set aside any rights for Indians was instigated by that great democrat, Andy Jackson.
The democrat party is already trying to resurrect slavery with us as tax slaves so claiming rights over our kids is just a renewal of their traditional values.
FUBO, FAD, & down with the democrat party.
Get her a room in St. Elizabeth’s already.
Ignorant slut doesn’t know the history of her own party.
The true tragedy is the pernicious need of the American public for controversy and novelty. A moments reflection would indicate her verbal position reveals a total lack of knowledge of white family structure, values, manners and morals. I wish the American people would grow up.
1. Idiot Liberal says something Beyond Stupid.
2. People criticize the Liberal’s Beyond Stupid comment.
3. Idiot Liberal goes Beyond Stupid commenting on the Critics of her original Beyond Stupid comments.
Alinsky Lives, and we’re the only ones wearing the Sunglasses.
(Let me rewrite a bit of what she wrote to clarify her thinking.)
I want (the government to teach) them to learn in enriching and dynamic classrooms. I want (the government to raise) them to be healthy and well and free from fear. I want (the government to make) them to grow up to agree or disagree with me or with you (but not the government) and to have all the freedom and tools (that the government gives them, that) they need to express what they believe (as long as it does not go against what the government wants).
And no hateful thing that you say to me (or to totalitarian government) or about me (or totalitarian government) will ever change that I want those things for *your* children.
(Note she *didn’t* say *her* children. She said “your” children.)
This is the function of "Child Protective Services", to look for reasons to take people's children away, in the misguided notion that the government is better at raising your kid than you are. Then they might give your kids to some foster parents, who they think will be better at it than you.
It won't be long before government categorizes teaching your children that there is a heaven and a hell, and that the kids must be good and not sin, as "child abuse", and take your kids away if you send them to Sunday school.
This dumb bimbo is walking back her comments. Big surprise. She must have realized my kids are as big believers in the 2nd amendment as I am!
The teacher tips her hand to reveal her Union Mentality: Work is to be sloughed off on somebody else. She goes on to "clarify," but if she had a brain she would not have written this remark in the first place.
I assume you agree there are some "parents" who are indeed worse than any possible alternative.
The only such history I'm aware of is slave state laws prohibiting the education of slave children at all.
America never "seized" the children of black slaves, though it did permit private property rights to be used to allow families to be sold away from each other.
