MSNBC: Your Kids Belong to the State
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | 4-8-2013 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 04/08/2013 12:31:02 PM PDT by servo1969

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.

It isn't anything new. Yet in the past people would hear something like this and choose not to have to deal with it. That would have meant taking action, and it was much easier to say, "Nah, that's never gonna happen. I mean, that's just not going to happen." So where has that left us? All of these things we thought were never gonna happen are now happening -- and the opposition party, which in this case is the Republican Party, has basically one item in their agenda, and that's stop these guys.

But there is no alternative. There is no vision. There is no equally correlating long-term vision being articulated by the opposition to this. All we're doing, all the party's doing is saying, "We have to stop those guys. In the way of stopping it, we'll agree with some of it. Maybe partial amnesty or whatever. We'll moderate our terms here on social issues. Okay, gay marriage? Fine. We can see where that'll work. All right, all right." But there's no push-back, and so there's no reason for Melissa Harris-Perry to be worried about any negative fallout or feedback from this.

Because as far as she's concerned, everybody thinks this now. I want you to listen to it again. I want you to listen to just how naturally it flows off her tongue. I want you to listen to how matter of fact it all is; how she just presumes everybody agrees with this. This is not something she even has to defend. This isn't an argument that she has to win the debate about. This is a conclusion now that we've all come to, and everything in here is a conclusion. "We've not spending enough on education."

We're going bankrupt on all we're spending on education! We're getting nothing for it. I've got the story of what's happening at Bowdoin College up in Maine coming up. I'll give you the details here just a second. "We're never invested as much in public education as we should have"? We're throwing money down a rat hole drain of public education! We lead the world in public education spending. We lead the world in getting the least for it. "We've had a private notion of children that your kid is yours and your responsibility"?

How old-fashioned!

How utterly irresponsible was that! How selfish could you be, thinking that your kid is yours? That was never the deal. The kid belongs to all of us. Look, as I say, Mrs. Clinton tried this. "It Takes a Village," and what was the reaction then? Everybody laughed at it, made fun of it, and had jokes at her expense. I know I did. A lot of people did. Back then, in the nineties when Mrs. Clinton's book came out, nobody ever thought anything like that would ever really happen, where the state would literally claim ownership of your kids.

It was so foreign, it was so out of the realm of common sense and even belief that people never, ever took it seriously. Yet these people keep plugging away, and they keep setting up their Head Start programs, and they keep setting up national publicly funded government-run day care centers, and they keep furthering the notion that somebody else can raise your kids better than you can. They got traction on the idea that fathers are the worst thing for a kid, especially for girl kids 'cause fathers are predators.

Fathers are dangerous, rapists. They beat up their mothers on Super Bowl Sunday. All this outrageous stuff everybody laughed at and said, "No way anyone will believe that," they just kept plugging away at it and they think it's commonly accepted as fact. Here, listen. This is a professor. I don't know of what, but it doesn't matter. She could be a professor of history. She's teaching this rotgut. It doesn't matter. Okay, here's Melissa Harris-Perry.

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: Folks, that is as foreign as anything I've ever... That, to me, is insanity. This is, you know, go get the guys in the white coats, bring the little van up, take her away. That's what this is. We haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children. So we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families. We need to recognize that kids belong to whole communities, and not 'til then will we start spending the right amount of money on it. So how does this manifest itself?

You need your yard mowed, what do you do? You go knock on the door down the street and say, "Your kid that you don't own, I do today for the next hour. Your kid's gonna mow my yard, and then after that my trash needs taking out, and after that I need somebody to go to the grocery store for me. My kid's tied up, so I'm claiming your kid." How does this work? What is the practical application? What she is saying, Melissa Harris-Perry, what she is saying here is as old as communist genocide. But, the fact that it is said in America on a cable news channel, and is considered fairly benign is what has changed. What's changed is that people believe this. This isn't that big a deal anymore. That's what's changed, folks.

All the leftist in Hollywood, MSNBC, CBS, CNN, and Washington should demonstrate how this is done and give all their children over to foster care.

Wait till the “state” tells an expectant lesbian that she must abort her child because it belongs to them and it’s “for the good of the state.” Maybe then the statists will wake up.

Quite right.

My father, who escaped from Hungary, told me how when he and his brother were very young their dad had to serve in the war. Well, my grandmother had died in childbirth a few years earlier, so since the two boys would have no parent around the “State” took them and placed them in the home of ordinary citizens. The “adoptive parents” were TOLD that they must care for such children.

Basically, you have X number of rooms? X number of children of your own? You can fit a couple more!

After being there a short time, my uncle was removed by the State and placed in a different town. My father was told that it was so that children did not become too dependent (close) on their own siblings because they would need to get along with strangers if they were moved to other families.

Years later my grandfather, having survived the fighting, managed to find them both and bring the family together for a short time. My father had to go into mandatory service at the age of fourteen. That meant the coal mines. The stories are just riveting.

A "private ntion", eh?

How about a BIBLICAL IMPERATIVE?

Of COURSE a leftist would state that the opposite of a clear biblical value is "good" and disdain the biblical value as "bad".

She claims to speak for, and to, “African Americans” - so basically, she just wants to further atomize and destroy the black family and black community.

More of the same.

Maybe someday in the distant future, when time gives perspective, clear-thinking people will see the maleficent role thinking like hers has played in the black community.

What a whack job! Add Tulane to the list of no-go universities. And if she really believes this she can give her children up to the State ... if she has any.

The leftists; these communists, like this nut have gone wild. No other way to say it. I guess their political kryptonite has kicked in to a new level for lust, control onto a total power system. They can't control themselves. What's next.. a live show brainwashing a child for 40 minutes then another and another (they have been practicing). They not only boost of their communist ideology; they are in full mode of war to advance this narcissistic agenda so proudly. If this does not wake up the average person to begin planning, for a complete government take over, nothing will. The dems, the libs will feel it too but don't think that people are not going to turn on the libs and the dems who did this mostly to all of us. The repubs are mostly hated anyway for not fighting back.

In a few years Rush will concede this one too.

You beat me to it. The lady is acting as if any of this is new. If it is in the interest of the State to turn out good, obedient little citizens, then it is the responsibility of free men and women to turn out free men and women who can make up their own minds.

This business of a paternalistic collective from which all blessings flow is, frankly, outdated, presumptuous, and has proven ineffective to produce any society a free man or woman would want to be a part of. The only people benefiting from collectivist politics are the ones who would be master.

That makes no sense.

Rush Limbaugh has been a thorn in the side of the left for 25 years. He has always opposed liberalism and exposed it's goals, methods and perpetrators. Rush Limbaugh is hated by the left because of his conservative views and large following. Yes, he makes big money because he 'delivers' a large audience for his sponsors. Why does that fact put him in the same company as communists such as Barack Obama and Ted Kennedy?

Your statement makes no sense. Unless it was simply meant as a slam against Rush Limbaugh, which would delight the very same liberals you claim to oppose.

Other than Sarah, Rush is the only other true conservative I listen too. Levin is ok but grates on my nerves. The others like Sean Vannity, Coulter, and O’Really are closet libs just peddling their wares.

Oh I forgot Malkin she is a good one.

Documentation File on the harmful impact of the Counterculture of Obamanation on America.

___________________

Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, 5 days before the end of GWB’s Presidential term, told ‘The Gullible’ the following: “We are five days away from FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!”

Going on 5 years now, the best friends that Obama could have had to help him achieve his above stated dastardly goal were the RINO leaderships in the US House and Senate, AND THEY ARE STILL IN POWER!

_____________________

IMHO, the Counterculture of Obamanation will continue to destroy America for as long as the US Congressional RINOs allow it to, and not one minute more!

We've seen how well that works when kids have the State as 'daddy' - shared with 'community role models'... to look up to...

Great way to raise kids if the definition of 'great' is a young person who drops out of high school, has a greater chance of being a street whore than a CEO, and a gang member than a PhD... Yeah we're all charmed with the reality of this kind of stupid thinking....
