“Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale” courtesy of the California Federation of Teachers (CFT)! Taking a page out of Barack Obama’s playbook, the video created by the CFT paints a picture of the rich as a class of people who got to where they are through tax cuts, tax loopholes, buying politicians, skirting the law and in fact at times actually breaking the law.
Then, when the “downtrodden working class” attempted to fight back through fringe causes like OWS, the rich peed all over them.
THAT IN FACT THE RICH (AKA SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE WHO BUSTED THEIR ASSES TO GET TO WHERE THEY ARE), ARE ACTUALLY TO BE HATED!
The narrater of this video that vilifies the rich? None other than the wealthy 1 percenter and Hollywood elite actor himself, Ed Asner.
This is what the children of California are being taught. That working hard, making money and striving to achieve the American dream is BAD, that it can only be achieved by stepping on other people and that shared sacrifice and monetary equality for all citizens is the correct path for our society!
The CFT wants to make the point that the rich are to be hated for their richness. Further, that the rich hate those who are not rich and that they would, if given the chance, actually “pee” all over those who are not as financially fortunate as they are in order to get even richer (2:50 into the video).
And making a video like this to promote class warfare is where teachers union dues are going in the People’s Republic of California! Disgusting!
