MSNBC resident idiot, Melissa Harris-Perry, does it again….
This nimrod just doesn’t seem to recognize that when you’re in the Idiot Hole, it may be a good idea to stop digging.
First she tasted her over-priced high heeled shoe by making a comment that children don’t belong to their parents but, instead, belong to the ‘community’.
When that blew up in her face, she attempted to justify it by commenting on how certain groups were taken away from their parents by the “community’ she previously championed and were ‘re-educated’.
Obviously, someone hit her in the face with the Stupid Shovel so she was too dazed and confused to recognize that she was contradicting herself.
After shoveling so much runny crap into her pie hole, you’d think even someone with less than the combined intelligence of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne would have the foresight to take a break from making themselves look like a complete boob for a while.
But, then again, we are talking about MSNBC.
Par for the course, Missy once again opened her “Ever Full Bag Of Dumb” and whipped out this sterling gem today:
Americans will always want some level of inequality, because it’s a representation of meritocracy. People who work hard and sacrifice and save their money and make major contributions — we think that they should earn a little more. They should have more resources, and that’s fine. But we also, however, have to have a floor under which nobody falls. And if you’re below that — especially if you’re a child and you’re below that — we are not going to accept that. You do have the the right to health care, and to education, and to decent housing and to quality food at all times.
No, Melly. There is not a floor that no one falls under. Unfortunately for some, they are going to fall. They are going to fail. And guess what? That will be their fault.
America provides everyone with the opportunity to succeed-to make something more of themselves than the position they were born into. However, to rise above that mythical floor you cry about, that takes hard-damn hard work. It takes perseverance and a whole lot of sweat, tears, blood and elbow grease. It’s not just going to be handed to you unless you were fortunate enough to be born into a wealthy family.
If people fail, it’s because of their own lack of determination and desire. Not everyone can be a college graduate. Not everyone can be a movie or sports star. Not everyone can be a technological genius. But everyone can be a success in their own way….if they really want it.
By patting people on the head and feeding them crumbs so you can feel better about yourself and can brag to your friends about how you “helped the helpless” you are doing nothing but making the people you supposedly want to help less-determined and more dependent on handouts…which is a sure-fire way to stuff them under that floor you claim you don’t want them falling under.
I know this is hard to accept, Miss, but some people are just losers and will always will be. All you do by pretending to support them and feeding them handouts paid by others is prolonging their misery.
Also, dingy, people do not have a right to healthcare, education, housing or food.
If you want those things then, like everyone else, you need to work for them and provide them for yourself.
Fortunately, public education (for what it’s worth) is provided by tax payer dollars so people can take advantage of that but, again, guess what? You can send every kid and young adult to the best Ivy League school in the nation but if they don’t want to do the work (there’s that pesky word again!) they won’t succeed. You know…just like in life.
It’s one thing if someone who is willing to work and provide for their family falls on hard times. Then by all means, lend a hand and help them out….for a short amount of time.
But when people make the decision to give up, drop out, and just be useless leeches on the belly of society, it’s time they learn to either sink or swim.
Either way they go, society will be better for it.
Anyway, Melissa, I think it’s time you took a vacation from Dumbass Land.
