MSNBC Host Turns to Jesus in Response to Criticism of Her Child Collectivization Rant

Update on Melissa Harris-Perry’s collective ownership of children rant. Looks like she caught HELL (as she should have) over her snobbish attitude! Good!

Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | April 9, 2013

Our story on Melissa Harris-Perry’s collective ownership of children has prompted the MSNBC host to post a Twitter response. On Monday afternoon, she posted the following straight out of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount:

Melissa Harris-Perry ✔ @MHarrisPerry

Matthew 5:44.

11:14 PM - 08 Apr 13

The verse reads: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”

It seems odd that Ms. Harris-Perry would cite one of the most important verses in the New Testament in an effort to discount the arguments of her critics, including Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh. Is she aligning herself with Matthew and the early Christians who suffered persecution under the Romans?

She likes to tell the story of Ron Paul...

She likes to tell the story of how Ron Paul gave her (or her daughter?) a pocket copy of the constitution.

That said, the ideas that speaks of is very dangerous.

Self induced grandeur

Melissa Harris perry using a token bible sentence and labeling the people who questioned her policy position as "enemies" shows her lack of ability to debate her own policy advocacy. She seems to feel entitled ( what a surprise ) to unquestionable adherence to her policy prescription. How dare someone question such self induced grandeur right ?

Well, the last I checked, United States has not yet turned in to Soviet union. We are allowed to oppose each others viewpoints.

Collectivism : ism 4 idiots

It is my right to be uncommon. For I do not choose to be a common man, If I can, I seek opportunity. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the government look after me. I choose to take the calculated risk, to dream, to build, to fail or succeed. I choose not to barter incentive for a dole, I prefer the challenges of life to a guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment to the state calm of Utopia. I will not trade my freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout.


“Son of the Republic, look and learn.” At this, the dark,shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene. From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. And throughout this mass, there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country, and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. “‘As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat., I again heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast. “‘Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word “Union,” and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle. Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” “‘As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious. “‘Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities, springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, plating the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: “While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.” And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word “Union,” he placed it upon the Standard, while the people, kneeling down, said “Amen.” “‘The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who in the same voice I had heard before, said, “Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted. Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third.”


I Don't Pray to Collectivists, I Got Something Better

Psalm 23 (King James Version)

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

What does God say?

Psalm 5:5 "The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity."

Psalm 11:5 "The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth."

Hey Bitch their mine not yours...

now piss off.

i hope she got my message?


Apparently, she's a Unitarian Universalist. And they typically don't put much stock in the Bible, viewing it as a mere literary text which can be drawn upon like any other book. I have to wonder if she is trying to get outspoken Christians who disagree with her to shut up, but I think people would be justified to speak out against her attack on parental rights, families, children, and ultimately on the fabric of civilization and nature.

It's possible that she is encouraging her supporters to not respond with hate towards those who disagree with her, but I kind of doubt that it's likely supporters of that view would put much stock in the Bible either.

All I know is... She doesn't own my children

Nor does the government. Hands off! And, by the way, the government doesn't own me either.

She's appealing to a higher

She's appealing to a higher logical fallacy in order to bolster her argument.

Using the BIBLE to defend herself---

well, she will be judged for this...when she awakes from the DEAD.

She is a statist, and she SHOULD know better. The "State" NEVER cares for the children. The parents care, but NEVER the State, and by supporting the evil, she will be judged for this.

Hitler, Russians, Chinese---how'd that work out!

Someone should send her a sample of the DP "Yo Mamma"


Free includes debt-free!

Part of...

...loving your enemies is being willing to examine one's own actions or words or thoughts, to see if we are in the wrong. If she isn't applying 'love your enemies' to herself in this way, but only using this as a way to label herself the victim, regardless of what is true, and anyone who disagrees with her a meanie, then that isn't appropriate. The flip side is -- are the people opposing her speaking truth in Love? If they are speaking truth with vile hatred, then, they need to examine themselves as well. These verses cut both ways.

Just to clarify: anger does not necessarily mean hatred. Christ did not hate the moneychangers; He loved them and the people they were abusing, but did not love their actions -- and a display of righteous anger followed.
