I somehow missed this but apparently when Sarah Palin was going after CNN the other day, she also took a bizarre jab at MSNBC.

So yesterday I wrote about how Sarah Palin was all pissy about a journalist who works for CNN daring to call her consultants "consultants."

Well what I failed to notice is that Palin was a cable news tear (With the exception of Fox News of course.) and also went after Melissa-Harris Perry for one of her "Lean Forward" promos on MSNBC.

Now apparently Palin was angry at MHP for daring to suggest that children were not the possessions of their parents, you know like a pair of socks or a new car, and instead were human beings that should be nurtured by the entire community.

Here maybe you can make sense out of it.
Nice of her to embed the video so that we can see for ourselves how completely ridiculous her attack is, don't you think?

    Perhaps the delusional dingbat thinks Melissa Harris-Perry was insinuating that Trig is not Scarah's child! It HAD to be about Scarah, right?
    Mental illness is getting worse - no other explanation for this reaction.

    1. Anonymous10:59 AM

      Yep, lies have a way of eating at a person. I guess she's paranoid that the truth about Trig is coming out.

      A word to the wise Sarah darlin': DOCTOR Harris-Perry is really not the one to f*ck with. Unlike Rove and the other neo-nuts, DOCTOR Harris-Perry isn't looking to protect the GOPTeabagger agenda, thus she would have no qualms with taking your clown ass down.

      The only venue for Palin to continue her grifting is to start to pick fights with people who have a broader audience and hope they respond. She has no other way except FB and Twitter to engage an audience. Her bot's will then feel compassion for her victimization and keep donating to her PAC. She thrives on the negative attention. She has never contributed a positive contribution of any kind.

      she's just flippin' out because her kid does't really belong to HER.

    Not a big surprise--to Princess Mucho Dinero, the kids are nothing but u$eful prop$ belonging only to HER.

    OT--RIP Annette Funicello, a truly talented, lovely and courageous woman. She will be missed!

    1. First I'd heard of Annette's passing, loveandknishes. If I had to hear it, glad it was from you...

      May her memory endure as a blessing.

  3. She should have "watched" the video all the way through. MHP is saying something similar to Hillary's "it takes a village". But Sarah lives in her own world...

    1. Anonymous11:31 AM

      Oh, the right hates that 'village' notion from Hillary as well. They want no one collectively doing anything, because that's socialism. They want to homeschool their kid (or not,) make sure they get no sex ed, because all those babies of teens are SO welcomed and so likely to have bright futures because of being on food stamps and having a mother exhausted from working two jobs without a high school diploma. They want no one to have health inurance not mandated by a company plan and the insurers', because you know, only people with decent jobs deserve to get vaccinations and blood work and have their broken arm set without selling their car. It's too bad Sarah's 'village' hasn't stepped in to take care of her kids for her...let's see, two teen pregnancies that they will admit to, three over-18s with one earned diploma between them, no college classes for a better future, and a middle schooler with a mouth like a sailor. Oh, and lest we forget..a DS child who is not getting what he needs to ever be semi-independent and make a life for himself. I can hardly wait 20 years when Sarah is 70 and Trig is still living at home and squinting at picture books and screaming because she never got him the therapies he needs right now.

    What a douchebag. MHP was saying it takes the village to raise children. When one child succeeds, we all succeed. SP doesn't strike me as a parent concerned about the education of her own children, let alone those from the village.

  6. When I grew up, it was not uncommon for a neighbor to tell me "Its time to go home now" when it was time.

    When I grew up, it was not uncommon for a neighbor to caution me before I was about to do something stupid.

    When I grew up, it was not uncommon for a neighbor to chew me out if I did something wrong - and I knew it was wrong.

    When I grew up, it was not uncommon for a neighbor to ask me "how are you doing" - and I knew they were genuinely concerned for me AND wanted to know - how was I doing?

    When I grew up, it was not uncommon for a neighbor to take us all to the drugstore for a coke. We'd load up in their car and go. If we were hungry, we'd get some french fries too.

    But most of all, when I grew up, I felt like not only was I my parents child, but also a child of our community / street. If I needed help, I could run up to any neighbors door and know they would help me, without question.

    Everybody knew everybody else. We weren't afraid to correct another parents misbehaving child, and we didn't always judge each other. I'm just saying...

    Last night, the families of Newton, CT told their very sad stories, putting a personal face on the issue of gun control. Among the issues that they discussed was the fact that gun control was a community issue. It affects everyone. They provided the rebuttal to Sarah's silly argument that you own your child vs. Melissa Harris Perry's point that your child is part of a community.

    The Newtown parents are part of a community, and they acknowledged teachers and other students who saved lives. There are children in Newtown who are alive because someone in that school helped them. That is what is meant by being part of a community. The actions of the gunman (and his mother who provided the weapons) affected all of them. You cannot be part of a community without other people affecting your life, and perhaps you affect other peoples' lives as well.

    Once we send out kids off to school, they interact with the other kids, who might teach them swear words, tempt them with drugs or offer wonderful friendship. We do not live in isolation. When we send our kids out to play at a friend's house, we should know whether they keep guns in that house, are they locked safely away, is there drug use, is there an abusive adult in that house? All of these things affect our kid when they step out of our house.

    The only way that Palin can make the claim that she owns her own kids is if she keeps them at home, home schools them and they never have to set foot in the world. Trig needs therapy. Is Sarah providing it, or does it come from someone in the community? I notice that many in her family wear glasses. That meant that they had to go to someone who was trained in giving an eye exam, writing the prescription for someone to make the glasses. Maybe that person has a child in daycare, which allows them to work at the glasses store. Maybe the eye doctor went to school on a scholarship or a student loan. All of this comes as a result of the community. Unless Palin is growing her own cotton, weaving her own cloth and shooting her own dinner (and we know that she can't shoot straight), she relies on her community, too, whether she wants to admit it or not.

    Melissa used that argument as a springboard for a smart discussion, something that was beyond Sarah's limited ability to understand. Community goes beyond the people who live near us. Today, a community or network can exist on-line, like Sarah's fan group. She makes these straw men arguments to appeal to them, hoping that they will send her money. Sarah would not exist without her community of followers. We are all inter-connected, and Melissa's argument extends far beyond our children. It really includes all of us. It's too bad that while most people can think in terms of "the group," Sarah's thinking is limited to herself.

      Exactly. Who is taking care of Piper on a regular basis? Who is taking care of Trig? At one point or another every one of her children (even the one she didn't give birth to) has lived with another family, either related or not.

      I've never heard of such a thing (although I sure the Palin toe-sucking apologist will be here shortly to tell us that it happens all the time).

      To that I say, only when the parents are unable or unwilling to care for the children.

    4. Anonymous12:15 PM

      As I understand Wasilla history, Curtis Menard II marched into Sarah's office when she was Mayor and told her that she should be spending more time with her kids. Menard's interest was ...well, he was Track's godfather, and some people think that he had a closer relationship to the boy. So for question for Sarah is: If a close friend, your child's godfather told you to spend more time with your kids, who was taking care of them if you weren't? Sounds as if someone else in the community looked after the Palin kids. I guess that they were part of the community after all.

    Children are educated and molded by so many different forces -- family, school, church, work. They don't live in a vacuum, and, thank goodness, they don't. They then can enter adulthood having experienced a variety of people and situations, and are thus more able to WORK and not be a taker, unable to navigate in the complex world.
    It has been ever thus, and will continue to be.
    Of course parents have the ultimate responsibility for their children. No one disputes that, except for extreme instances of child abuse, drug or alcohol abuse by the parents. The family has the greatest effect on a child. But no child should be kept isolated from the whole rest of the wonderful world.

    Perhaps if the community had helped give Bristol guidance when her parents weren't around, she wouldn't have lost her virginity at 15, drunk in a pup tent, or given birth before she was an adult. Perhaps if there had been others watching and giving guidance, at least one of Sarah's adult children would have learned the value of an education, and have finished high school.

    I wonder if Trig's various nannies count for Sarah as "family" or "community"?
    She surely isn't raising the boy herself.

    No child or person is the property of another. It's outlawed by the U.S. Constitution. Give it a read, Sarah, when you've finished all your child care duties for the day.

    This is the logical conclusion of the extreme right -- that we are nothing more than individuals, and that it is somehow unnatural for us to share life with others. Hey, it's MY kid. I can smack it around if I want! Who SAYS my children have to learn to read and write? Who SAYS I can't pipe my toilet into the river? These are people who think it's safer for THEM for everyone to have a gun or ten, that as soon as you start sharing protection, someone else will turn the gun on you instead of protecting you. It's all very isolationist and subcultural. It's also easier to think that way, hence more attractive to low IQ's. It's much easier to think that I need a gun for myself than to think about what would make for just and effective communal protection. Gimme what I want and leave me alone.

    Glenn Beck: MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry part of UN conspiracy to collectivize American children

    Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Monday linked an MSNBC promotional advertisement about public education to conspiracy theories that contend the United Nations plans to use mind control to establish a communist dictatorship and that the Obama administration is using school testing standards for “leftist indoctrination.”

    Last week, conservative websites like Newsbusters and the Daily Caller cited MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry’s promo about the need for public education as evidence that liberals intended to usurp parental sovereignty.

    “We have never invested as much in public education as we should have, because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children,” Harris-Perry says in the spot. “So part of it is, we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.”

    On Monday, The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher featured the video with the headline, “MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry wants your children.” And the Media Research Center’s snarky headline borrowed a popular Internet meme: “Shorter Melissa Harris-Perry: All Your Kids Are Belong to Us.”

    Beck’s The Blaze website noted that the conservative radio host had also featured Harris-Perry’s promo on his Monday radio program, adding that he “referenced Agenda 21, which emphasizes ‘the collective’ over the individual, noting that it’s been branded a conspiracy theory among adults while children are learning about it in school.”

    Conservatives have warned that Agenda 21 was a “conspiracy to transform America from the land of the free, to the land of the collective” through “a mind-control technique” called the Delphi technique.

    Beck also linked the MSNBC advertisement to Common Core, an initiative to create nationwide testing standards for students.

    “This is, I believe, the fulfilment of a couple of things that we said would happen,” Beck explained. “And they have. And they will be dismissed. And you will be made to look like a conspiracy theorist.”

    “This is the announcement of where they’re headed,” he insisted. “This is exactly what we warned about, this is the fulfilment of so many things that we have said on this program.”

    Beck went on to say that the “battle was on” to defeat Common Core because “it is a loss of parental sovereignty, of state sovereignty and it is also a loss of our children into a grotesque system.”

    Last month, Beck suggested that Common Core would help Chinese and Muslims take over the United States.

    Beck Rips MSNBC, Harris-Perry Over ‘Almost A Parody’ Promo Saying Your Kids Belong To ‘Whole Community’

    The Blaze TV host and conservative radio broadcaster, Glenn Beck, ripped into MSNBC and host Melissa Harris-Perry for releasing a network promo that urges society to think of child rearing in a more collective sense. “It’s almost a parody of reality,” Beck said of the promo. “It is so far beyond what we have ever thought as a nation, it’s remarkable.”

    “We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children,” Harris-Perry says in the promo caught by Mediaite’s Garrett Quinn. “So, part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

    “My kids do not belong to me,” Beck noted. “My kids are not my kids. They are the community kids. So, I don’t really have responsibility for my kids. I can look to the state to also take that responsibility and, quite honestly, that burden from me.”

    “This is not a mistake,” Beck said of MSNBC’s decision to air the promo. “This is the announcement of where they’re headed.”

    “What’s really horrible about this is — the idea behind this is going to be so appealing to so many people,” Beck continued. “So many people are going to say, ‘I love that, because I’m freaked out. I don’t know what to do with my kids. I don’t know how to parent them. I don’t know what to do. I’m losing control of them. They’re unruly. They’re whatever. I don’t know what to do.’ And, so, the State will relieve you of that.”

    Beck said that he believes that 20 or 30 percent of people would gladly allow the state to raise their children in order to relieve the stress of that responsibility.

    I've always held the same sentiment Melissa Harris Perry conveys in that commercial. I call them my kids but they're not my property, they're citizens of the world.

    Melissa forgot to mention that every village has an idiot, and Sarah Palin is the Universal Village Idiot.

    As we get older, hopefully we also get wiser. Looks like Palin is just getting older.

    Can anyone name 1 of Sarah and Todd's offspring who is intelligent, well-spoken, educated, and not a drug user? Can anyone explain why Todd leaves Sarah at night to go Pimp?

      Why would Todd leave Sarah to go pimp?

      Same reason he makes peep holes to look at women's nipples.

      He's a pervert

    I think I first realized that my children were not fully mine the first time I took them to preschool and trusted that someone else would take care of them and contribute to their upbringing, and that it was a good thing to have others throughout their lives that would help them grow up. It is the parents who think their children are their possessions that damage them, or end up pretending to be pregnant for them. :)

    Personally, I am offended whenever people use substitute words for more foul language. Even if the offensive word isn't said, by using a substitute, i.e., "flipping," the thought is there.

    I don't care for the word that she was implying and that was on her mind-such as it is. :)

    Tells ya a bit about what she really thinks, doesn't it?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
