MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry updating Hillary Clinton's "It Takes a Village" meme from the 90s.
"We always had this 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 this private idea that kids belong to their parents... (rather) recognize that kids belong to whole communities.
So, what's your personal "creep factor" on this one? We give it a solid 8 (out of 10). Points for the earnestness that comes with this strain of lefty down for the struggle packaging.
In the past we've been shamed into parting with our scratch to lavish upon a broken public education system on the simple "it's for the children" sales pitch with the implied accusation that you are a heartless bastard if you don't vote for that particular school bond in November.
We've entered new territory here as the "it's for the children" angle is topped off with a healthy dose of getting onboard and being a team player in the new collective vision of the future as a means to grab more of our money. To believe or act otherwise would be anti-social behaviour at its most unacceptable.
Looks as if transformation of MSNBC from an opinion and news outfit to a megaphone for statist collective group-think is complete. Congrats, gang.
