For months, Glenn has been warning that the progressives would eventually just stop hiding their agenda and just come out and admit their radical goals. Well, thanks to MSNBC the progressive agenda became exposed more to the mainstream. It's not a parody and it's not a sketch: Melissa Harris-Perry actually said in an approved promo for the network that children don't belong to their families, they belong to the collective.
"It is so far beyond what we have ever thought as a nation, it's remarkable," Glenn said.
"This is something that people thought about. This is something that everybody worked on. This is something that everybody got together and filmed," he added.
In the video, Harris-Perry said:
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. 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 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.
"There it is. Finally somebody has come out and said it," Glenn said.
Glenn explained that many parents will fall in line with this rhetoric as they seek to shift the responsibility of raising their children from themselves onto others.
He also said that it makes no sense to spend more money on public education when it has spectacularly failed so poorly for years and years. He likened it to basketball coach who would be fired if he couldn't produce results, not be given more money to fail over and over again.
