CA Teacher Union Thug Propaganda Alert: Classroom Video Promotes Class Warfare With “Rich” Urinating on “Poor” (Video)

Guest Post by Mara Zebest

This video, narrated by Lib 1-percenter kook Ed Asner, is being shown to your children. The video blames every economic woe on the “rich” – don’t expect your children to learn about Obama’s role in the mess.  Statist-run Department of Education producing the OWS communist generations of the future.  It may be time to call your local school and find out if this video is being seen in the classroom and complain.

Eagnews reports the following:

SACRAMENTO – A new video produced by the California Federation of Teachers – which could be playing in your child’s classroom as we speak – drums up the typical class warfare images we’ve come to expect from Big Labor.

“Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale,” written by CFT staffer Fred Glass (2011 compensation: $139,800) and narrated by proud leftist actor (and 1 percenter) Ed Asner, advocates for higher taxes on the “rich” as the cure for government’s insatiable thirst for spending.

The video claims the rich got rich through tax cuts and tax loopholes and even tax evasion.

But when the 99 percent fought back, the “rich” apparently urinated on the “poor,” at least according to the video. What a classy way to frame your argument for children, Big Labor.

The video also claims that when the housing market crashed, the government printed money for “rich people” but they didn’t give any to “ordinary people whose houses and jobs were broken by the crash.”

That’s a patently a false statement, as evidenced by a handy-dandy chart courtesy of the New York Times. Here’s a sampling of what was contained in President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package:

– Help states prevent cuts to essential services like education – $53.6 billion
– Extend and increase unemployment compensation – $35.8 billion
– Health coverage under Cobra – $25.1 billion
– Increase food assistance – $20.9 billion
– Increase the maximum Pell Grant by $500 – $15.6 billion
– Provide cash payment to seniors, disabled veterans and other needy individuals – $14.4 billion
– Provide additional money to schools serving low-income children – $13 billion
– Provide additional money for special education – $12.2 billion
– Create new bonds for improvements in public education – $10.9 billion
And the list goes on and on.

The California Federation of Teachers’ video is little more than unsurprising leftist propaganda, aimed to indoctrinate children with no basis in fact. Do you know if your child is watching it in school?

    Union thugs want to take from producers and do not want to pay their fair share for premium benefits and bloated unsustainable pensions.
    These public sector unions are the most excessive in their demands and they want tax payers to pay more.
    If teachers were paid on productivity, they would be earning about half of what they are currently get.
    I vote NO for every tax levy that public employees are getting paid from.

  • ed asner is right, our economic problems are the fault of the rich. the rich politicans who have so much more of the income of the working people then they need to effectively govern this country.

    A friendly reminder:

    Taxing the rich (proposed Buffet rule receipts)

    The difference is a “modest” factor of … 234

    Tax the rich? Well, how about fire the illiterate ignoramuses masquerading as teachers?

    I like the part where Asner pretends that school budgets get cut.
    In Chicago the average teacher is pulling down $80g plus bennies.

  • SeniorD

    But when we take a closer look at Union Executive compensation, those hearty, loving people whose only intention is to ensure the individual worker is protected, make enough to be considered wealthy themselves.

  • SeniorD

    Remember, Ed Asner is a communist who just acts like an American.

    Anyone with school-age children in California that can’t do home-schooling should either find a suitable private school replacement or leave this state as soon as possible.

    Between this, the Democrat super-majority in Sacramento, and all the other problems that afflict this state, it’s only going to get worse.

    We have the richest Effing Commies the world has ever seen. Funny they left out the part about Obama and Holder not prosecuting any of those evil rich progressive traitors on Wall Street. We should start hearing stories soon about how the statute of limitations has just run out on securities fraud. Must of been those damn Republicans (yes there are some, they too are called Progressive TRAITORS!!)

    Political views

    A member of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy and Democratic Socialists of America, Asner served two terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild, in which capacity during the 1980s he opposed US policy in Central America, working closely with the Alliance for Survival. He played a prominent role in the 1980 SAG strike.[13] He has also been active in a variety of other causes, such as the movement to free Mumia Abu-Jamal and the movement to establish single-payer health care in California, California One Care, for which he created a television advertisement. He endorsed Barack Obama during the United States presidential election, 2008.

    The cancellation of Lou Grant in 1982 was the subject of much controversy. The show supposedly had ratings which would have justified its ongoing presence in primetime (it was in the ACNielsen top ten throughout its final month on the air), but the CBS television network declined to renew it. Asner has consistently contended that the publicity surrounding his political views was the real cause for the cancellation. (Howard Hesseman, who had participated with Asner in promoting a controversial medical aid for El Salvador program, found his popular show WKRP in Cincinnati canceled by CBS the same day.)[13]

    Ed Asner endorsed progressive Democratic Candidate Marcy Winograd in the 2011 California 36th Congressional district special election.[14]


    Asner is a member of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a free speech organization that is dedicated to protecting comic book creators and retailers from prosecutions based on content. He serves as an advisor to the Rosenberg Fund for Children, an organization founded by the children of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg which provides benefits for the children of political activists, and as a board member for the wildlife conservation organization Defenders of Wildlife.

  • Does the video mention how Clinton cronies Jamie Gorelick and Franklin Raines racked up eight-figure bonuses while making millions of bad loans that blew up the economy?

    I am guessing… not.

    Here’s a sampling of what was contained in President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package:
    Increase the maximum Pell Grant by $500 – $15.6 billion

    Oh, so now Obama DID increase Pell Grants. Seems the story changes to fit the day’s argument.

  • bobdog

    Ed Asner and the truth always were complete strangers.

  • greenfairie

    Americans used to be aspirational and were inspired by success. Kids will learn the only ways to make it in the future are as a politician, an entertainer/jock, a bureaucrat, or a union boss. Everyone else will be like poor Brazilians and Mexicans, living on garbage heaps in shanty towns.

    This is the work of Communists. Of course these idiots will wonder who’ll pay their bloated salaries when the rich move to Australia.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Oh, so now Obama DID increase Pell Grants. Seems the story changes to fit the day’s argument.

    The increase mentioned in the post above was maximum amount, and that was in 2009. Didn’t you see the reference to the “$787 billion stimulus package”?

    What was cut that a previous post referred to was the time a student had access; from eighteen semesters down to twelve.

    Don’t you ever READ any of the damned posts?

    Obama’s claim he doubled Pell Grant funding is entirely false

    [As noted in the picture below from Obama’s facebook page, Democrats
    are claiming President Obama has doubled funding for Pell Grants.

    The graphic deceptively fails to mention that not only did President
    Obama not double funding for Pell grants last year, he cut funding
    and would have made deeper cuts had Congress passed his 2011

    Beginning July 1, thousands of college students will no longer be
    eligible for Pell Grants. The changes are a result of a a $1 trillion
    spending bill passed overwhelmingly by Congress and signed into
    law by President Obama in December 2011 that funds the government
    through September 2012. The bill, which Obama signed, actually
    cut Pell Grants by $11 billion dollars over the next decade.]

    College students learn of Obama’s secret Pell Grant cuts

    [The amount of the grant varies based on family income (with a current yearly maximum grant of $5,550). If a student gets a grant less than a maximum, and a year later finds their income level has been reduced, they will not be able to recoup the difference in the lower amounts earned in a previous year. The cut in eligible semesters makes it difficult for students to make up that gap in later years.

    This cut in eligibility was never mentioned by President Obama during the campaign, and when he boasted about increasing funding to the Pell Grant program, CNN fact-checked his claim as true. While the amount of government funding to the program is going up in future years, CNN failed miserably by not pointing out the cuts in eligibility to students. The cuts could be a rude awakening to students who thought President Obama was expanding their educational opportunities.]

    Our only hope is in private education. This vile crap that continues to come from our public sources will undo anything responsible parents try to do at home. This is the result of 70 years of liberal agenda offered in an increasingly intolerant fashion.

    Need two generations to reverse. who can lead this charge?

    To what grades is this drivel being shown? And what exactly is the point (as most students aren’t old enough to vote)? Obviously we now know why schools aren’t doing so well in real academics, no time for math or science or reading. Just pop in a propaganda tape.

    Ed is a millionaire. Just how did they deliver printed money to you Ed, by FedEx or Government Mail?

    We have trust fund baby commies, rich Hollywood activists for the poor, Black race-mongers married to anything but black women (or mixed race and feel they have to ‘prove’ they’re blacker than Shaka Zulu), those who scream for blood against pedophile priests yet support NAMBLA, care so much for women yet silent on the Middle East and sex traffic, hate guns for you but not the criminals, make a movie on assassination of the last president yet silent on this one bombing the hell out of countries that have nothing to do with anything (and unashamedly asking them to step down, helping murder them, bragging about it).

    There are some sick, mixed-up individuals in this country.

    Had we given them the beat downs I suggested during Bush, it would’ve been a different story (yeah, that includes the press and our own in D.C.).

  • Mad Hatter

    This is what happened in the 1917 Revolution in Russia. Turn the public against the wealthy, and private businesses, then have the Government step in to “make things fair”.

    How did that wind up turning out?

    Benedict Arnold was an American hero until his name became synonymous with treason. Everything he did before that has been forgotten. I prefer to treat the modern Hollywood Benedict Arnolds the same way.

    Ed Asner? You mean the anti-American communist agitator? Did he used to act?

  • bigL

    I read that it would takea human,counting as in 1..2..3.., thirty-two thousand years to count to a trillion. Spending money like that is insane.

    This video is inaccurate, it should also feature Republican evil-doers urinating on disabled veterans. You guys do realize that you’re evil now, right?

  • Tee Dub


    I’m sure we can make one for you. We’ll just dress up some SEIU thugs in Palin T-shirts and Tea Party buttons and pay a homeless dude $100 to put on fatigues and get peed on.

  • JeffT

    Ed Asner is a vile human being. He gets more vicious as the years go by. Big fan of Ceasar Chavez and the “wonderful revolution” in Venezuela.

  • JeffT

    That, of course, would be Hugo Chavez. He probably was a big fan of the other Chavez, as well.

  • Obama Watcher

    This month, December 2012, multi-millionaire and DEMOCRAT Barack Obama will fly to Hawaii with his family and will spend over $4,000,000 of US taxpayers’ money on a 21 day “family vacation” staying in a multi-million dollar mansion. In the past, Democrat Barack Obama has flown his dog Bo in a separate US plane to their family vacation site, spending hundreds of thousands of US taxpayers’ money. Democrat Barack Obama has NOT redistributed his income or his wealth. DEMOCRAT and President Barack Obama is peeing on the US taxpayer.

  • Jason Edward Prather

    I’m confused why is california going to war with the rich democraps for urinating on the poor again?! TIME TO SHOW US YOR TAX RECORDS DEMOCRAPS! LET’S START WITH YOUR GOLDEN BOY GEORGE SOROS!
