New MSNBC Ad: Americans Have 'Right' to Health Care, Education, Housing, Food

Michelle Harris-Perry issues another promo after controversially suggesting kids belong to communities

More Socialism In Latest Harris-Perry 'Lean Forward': Most Successful Only Entitled To 'A Little More' (Newsbusters)

Maybe MSNBC was trying to deflect some of the controversy surrounding Melissa Harris-Perry's previous "Lean Forward" promo by pushing out a new one. MH-P had provoked outrage in that earlier promo by proclaiming that "kids belong to their communities," not to their parents.

But if anything, the new promo aired during today's Morning Joe just adds fuel to MH-P's socialist fire. While claiming to defend meritocracy, Harris-Perry could only grudgingly admit that the most successful should earn "a little more." She then proceeded to proclaim as a right "health care, education, decent housing and quality food at all times."  From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs, anyone?
