Last week, we blogged about MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her updating of the collectivist Hillary Clinton "It takes a village" meme and which can be found here.
We had some fun with it on Twitter wondering if when MH-P dropped off her kid with us on Friday evening, she was prepared to pick up a Dodger, Laker, Charger and Milton Friedman fan on Sunday afternoon. And we believe it was Sarah Palin who asked if MH-P would be cool if the Palin family took her tyke hunting after church in their big pick-up.
Funny stuff but it's something the bubble people of the establishment media don't ask themselves: If you're in the It takes a village set, are you willing to expose your children to opinions and possibly even indoctrination of which you vehemently disagree?
Well, not to be outdone, Melissa Harris-Perry doubled down on her collectivism, this time going wondering if people's freedom can be impinged upon for the greater common good.
"This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids, and this isn’t even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.”Since we know her track record and since she's even asking the question, we don't think we're going out on a limb by saying she has no problem with what it is she is postulating. A few points/questions: We would like MH-P to give us an operational definition of "common good". We've got a pretty good idea that our idea of "common good" doesn't jive with hers. Well, we're just assuming that because given the context of impinging on our freedom, we're not quite sure what "common good" even means, ourselves. It's Orwellian Newspeak. Also, by institutions, we're assuming she doesn't mean the Christian Church. Of course, she doesn't. Again, the establishment-left who live in their echo-chamber and who come up with this non-sense don't think through their half-baked theorizations. They automatically assume their correct thinking will be the coin of the realm as they move us all towards this utopic "common good". So much for diversity and more importantly, diversity of thought. With collectivists like MH-P, there is no such thing. It's their way or the highway as they are obviously superior moral and intellectual betters to the rest of us and the quicker we accept that fact, the quicker they can achieve their collectivist goals. Freedom and liberty are fine for her and her socio-poltical set, but the rest of us are not to be trusted with it, especially as it may run afoul of the "common good." In the words of a World War II general: Nuts! If no one else will say it, we will: Melissa Harris-Perry is a fascist thug and she only confirms this notion each time she opens her yap.
