UPDATED: Gov. Palin aghast that progressives at MSNBC think children do not belong to their parents

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 8, 2013

UPDATE:  Governor Palin followed up with these two tweets today.  Note the new hashtag:  #kidsbelongtous.



Original post:

Governor Palin was aghast at the statements in this MSNBC video posted by Bestviewsforlife.  Of course, the views expressed by Harris-Perry are consistent with the recent drive for universal preschool.  Obviously, progressives are not content with indoctrinating our public school students from grade school through college with liberal dogma and propaganda.  Now they want our preschoolers too.

An expanded view of the commentary beneath the video includes these comments:

The latest MSNBC “Lean Forward” spot featuring Melissa Harris-Perry is a collection of tired progressive cliches on steroids that harken back to the Clinton era. It really outdoes all previous “Lean Forward” ads.


There’s so much about this short spot that’s just troubling and wrong that we have to break it down piece by piece.

We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because…

Yeah, no. We spend more on education per-student than every country in the world according to the latest OECD Education at a Glance report. If you want to twist the numbers more and view our spending as a percentage of our GDP we come in a very close fifth behind Denmark, New Zealand, Iceland, and South Korea. So Harris-Perry’s allegation that “we have never invested as much in public education as we should have” is totally false.

we’ve always had 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.

There’s some startling stuff in there. Kids don’t just belong to their parents; in Harris-Perry’s world they belong to the collective whole, the community. They are the responsibility of everyone.


Earlier in her career, during a more gentle time, she was less open to the collective dictating household decisions on things like reproductive health and marriage arrangements. It appears now that Harris-Perry has come around to fully believing that, yes, only good things can come through collective action even when they intrude on private household decisions like child rearing.


This broader collective theme of child rearing she has should be roundly rejected by all sane people. Pooling community resources together to educate our children, even if it is done by force, is one thing but suggesting that we need to dissolve the traditional bonds between parent and child for the good of the greater collective is off the charts crazy
