Raum Emmanual Goldstein @ The People’s Cube:

AP-Washington, DC. Obama, outraged at the amount of negative press Melissa Harris-Perry and MSNBC have received over her remarks concerning the communal rights of society versus parental rights over the children stepped out in a rare, Friday afternoon press briefing himself to chastise conservative media — without a teleprompter — over their misguided understanding of Ms Harris-Perry’s remarks concerning who the real stakeholders are in America’s youth:

“There are a lot of healthy, successful American womyn who agree with me – because they wanted to give up their chance at motherhood. They know they didn’t – look, if you’ve become a mother, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so fertile. There are a lot of fertile people out there. It must be because I suffered much harder, longer labor than everybody else. Let me tell you something – there are a whole bunch of folks out there suffering hours of labor.” (Applause from the MSNBC section of the press room)

“If you had a baby, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great sex-ed teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American child that you have that we allowed to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. I don’t care how many hours of ‘natural child birth’ labor you were in…If you’ve got a baby—you didn’t make that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all you socially stunted people could find a mate off the Internet.”

“The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.”
