Here’s MSNBC’s Melissa Perry-Harris, the worst sort of statist, telling you exactly what Progressives think about your rights…
So, your kids aren’t yours. They belong to the community (i.e. “state”) and can be “invested in” (i.e., indoctrinated and used) by the same. This sounds familiar….oh, wait:
When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say: Your child belongs to us already…. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in this new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.
These words came from another community organizer who promoted socialized medicine, gun control, Keynesianism, and a strong central executive…he would later be the personification of evil for three-quarters of a century.
