How 'It Takes a Village' Turned Into 'There’s No Such Thing as Other People’s Children'

For the greater part of the last century, the Left has been systematically conquering every institution in American society. This was not some grand design implemented by a central power, rather it was a specific mindset that began with a small group. 

That mindset was “the personal is political, the political is personal.” This can be seen everywhere, from Hollywood to Big Tech, but it is incredibly prevalent in schools. Before the country knew what was happening, the notion that parents have no say in their children became the very bedrock of the public education system.

Back in 1996, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton published the book “It Takes a Village,” borrowing from the old African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The message of the book was clear; every aspect of society is involved in the raising of children, not just the parents. Doctors, neighbors, grandparents, the government and -- of course --  teachers are all part of this “village." This mentality didn’t originate with Clinton, but she certainly popularized it.  

Republicans vocally opposed this mentality. In Bob Dole’s acceptance speech at the 1996 Republican National Convention, he challenged the verbiage directly:

“And after the virtual devastation of the American family, the rock upon which this country was founded, we are told that it takes a village, that is collective, and thus the state, to raise a child,” he told the crowd. “The state is now more involved than it ever has been in the raising of children. And children are now more neglected, more abused, and more mistreated than they have been in our time. This is not a coincidence. This is not a coincidence. And with all due respect, I am here to tell you it does not take a village to raise a child. It takes a family to raise a child.”:snip:

Connect The Dots from "It Takes A Village" to CRT/Transgender Children.

Once again my 20/20 hindsight is operating at Peak Efficiency.
