Liberal collectivists are getting surprisingly bold and therefore more honest. You may remember last September, in their National Convention, Democrats declared, “Government’s is the only thing we all belong to.” Here are two half minute videos; chose one or both. This choice points out your owner, the government, has a hierarchy:

This choice ends with Clint Eastwood making clear who owns what:

[Eastwood end]

When we speak of our children, the possessive is a clear sense of primary relationship and responsibility. That primary relationship and that responsibility belong to parents. Collectivists have for generations pushed for expansive programs centralizing money and control saying it is for the children. How can anyone oppose that without being against the children? One highly prominent collectivist wrote a book called, It Takes a Village to Raise a child.

Now comes Mellissa Harris-Perry. It is true that most collectivists have hyphenated names but this is no ordinary collectivist. Melissa Harris-Perry is not only an American author, television host and collectivist political commentator who hosts a weekend news and opinion television show on MSNBC; Harris-Perry is a professor of political science at Tulane University. This ought to give Harris-Perry the authority to decide what is best for your kids. Give her a 30 second listen:


For some reason the notion that you will act to stop the takeover of your children seemed to escape Harris-Perry. She answered the emotional email objections yesterday:

Allow me to double down

My inbox began filling with hateful, personal attacks on Monday, apparently as a result of conservative reactions to a recent “Lean Forward” advertisement now airing on MSNBC, which you can view above. What I thought was an uncontroversial comment on my desire for Americans to see children as everyone’s responsibility has created a bit of a tempest in the right’s teapot. Allow me to double down.

One thing is for sure: I have no intention of apologizing for saying that our children, all of our children, are part of more than our households, they are part of our communities and deserve to have the care, attention, resources, respect and opportunities of those communities. …”

Let us be as clear as Eastwood. Harris-Perry and the collectivist crowd intend to prevail. They will be willing to compromise taking half a child. They know when we compromise, we lose.

This is really about who is above We the People whom Eastwood declared owns the country. In response to a demand, in the name of sovereign king George, by British Major Pitcairn in April 1775, Reverend Jonas Clarke shot back, “We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus.” For two hundred years Americans, as a general proposition, knew the fear of God. Americans are no longer so clear. We must be as clear as Professor Harris-Perry and the rest of the progressives. This is an ancient battle with only two sides.

Jesus said, “He that is not with Me is against Me, and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.” And again He said, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

Professor Harris-Perry and the rest cannot give credibility to a risen Jesus. They know when they do, they lose. Today is your day of decision. Are you with Him or are you with Harris-Perry and the collectivists? What are you going to do about it?
