Well, just in cased you thought that even MSNBC couldn’t ruin Independence Day, think again.  MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry went out of her way to propagandize the birth of our country.  The Blaze has the video, and the transcript…

Melissa Harris Perry, say things like this, according to Mediaite:

In what is sure to rankle the feathers of many conservatives, MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry took to her show Sunday to ponder the meaning of Independence Day, highlighting mostly the stains on American history. “It’s ours, all of it,” she said. “The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery, also the liberation and the hope and the deeply American belief that our best days still lie ahead of us.”

“Independence Day is more aspirational than actual,” she began her monologue. “We have longed defined the American Dream with commodities, a home of ones own, better education for the kids, family vacation and a car to the vacation in. And if we measure the dream by acquisitions, we’re in trouble. National unemployment remains above 8 percent. Wages have dropped, and the median net worth of American families plummeted by almost 40 percent.”[…]

She continued on to explain that her favorite story for this Fourth of July is one of people who are “not technically free.” She described a group of 27 inmates who recently completed their GEDs at the jail on Rikers Island. “Despite being incarcerated, they hold fast to the optimistic belief that education, hard work and second chances are still the stuff of America. And that they have a right to take part in the dream.”

“So on the Fourth of July,” Harris-Perry concluded, “I’m going to think of the Rikers Island graduates, and I’m going to wave a flag without hesitation — not because I’ve forgotten my nation’s many wrongs, but because I remember them. And I am nonetheless proud of my country, not for its perfection, because the alternative is too grim, the alternative is to give up on the dream of the nation founded in the belief, if not yet the practice that all are created, all deserve freedom, and all have the right to pursue happiness. Now, that is a dream worth celebrating — with fireworks.”

Wow, where do you go from there? The fact remains-there are people that actually believe this tripe, and they would reduce us to slavery, or worse, to make recompense.

  • This is what we’re up against Matt. This the kind of mentality that is embedded in our institutions of so “higher” education. She has a PhD in political science and is teaching this kind of crap to the next generation. Until we take a hard look at the curriculum being taught to our children in the public school system and at the college level these institutions will continue to churn out the same crap. We have a responsibility as parents to help build a foundation based on liberty and freedom in our children so they will be prepared with the system attempts to indoctrinate them.
