Youth mentor shocks with opinion everyone should have to prove they have the money to procreate

Common sense and the truth are not popular commodities in post-Obama America, where how society feels frequently trumps reality on the ground, but did a youth mentor go too far in declaring that poor people should not be having children?

Dr. Phil McGraw hosted an interesting debate on overpopulation on his show Tuesday that could have been held somewhere along the wide-open southern border with Mexico given that there were nearly as many illegal immigrants crossing into the U.S. over the past two years than there were births. The show got intense when YouTube content creator and youth mentor Anton Daniels dropped his version of a truth bomb when it comes to procreation.

“I don’t believe that poor people should be having children,” Daniels said in a video clip that Dr. Phil played while introducing him. “Having children when you don’t have money creates more problems for the kids and society at large, and let’s be honest – it’s the middle class and more importantly rich people that are now responsible for paying for poor people’s children.”

Fortunately for Daniels, he is a black man and largely immune from the outrage industry on the left.

“I know it’s an unpopular truth,” he added. “But I believe that every person should pass a test proving that they’re income-worthy prior to having kids.”

“It is important to acknowledge that the people that have the majority of the kids are the ones that shouldn’t be having kids, and then that becomes a burden on the people that actually have resources,” Daniels told the panel — the redistribution of these resources leads to America becoming a “socialist society” in America, he insisted while adding that teachers end up becoming “glorified babysitters.”

When the panel discussed birth control, Daniels had eyes popping throughout the studio as he commented on why taking a responsible approach to procreation is bound to fail for some.

“Have you ever walked in a grocery store and seen a lady with a bonnet on her head with eight kids walking behind her? You think that she’s being responsible? You think that she’s really taking into consideration what she’s supposed to do responsibly?” he asked. “You think she’s not on Section 8 housing? You don’t think that we’re paying for her to house her kids, who’s probably going to grow up and steal the wheels off my car?”

Thrown for a loop, Dr. Phil interjected to ask, “How did we get to the wheels on your –?”

“Because the people that are having kids are some of the worst in society,” Daniels explained. “And when you put them in an environment and they have to be raised without the resources in order for them to be able to thrive, often at times they become the ones that we have to take care of. Whether it be the prisons that we built for them, or the social services that we have to create for them — and they do not become more educated and do things differently, they breed more. That’s what happens.”
