MSNBC twat who believes that children should be considered community property, Melissa Harris-Perry, just can’t figure out that keeping her mouth shut might make her seem more intelligent.
Speaking on her weekend show, Harris-Perry said she thought the spot had been “relatively benign,” and was surprised by the reaction it got. She assured viewers that she did not intend to steal their children from them. But she stood by her statement.
“I believe our children are not our private property,” she said. “They are not just extensions of ourselves.”
Then, Harris-Perry explained why she thought she had caused such a ruckus. She said the fight over the ad was, at its core, the same argument the left and the right have been having for centuries.
“This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids,” she said. “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.”
Ahh, the “common good” theme. She believes that her idea is reasonable enough to restrict your rights so that she can have her utopia.
