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.
