Video: Calif. Teachers Union Releases Cartoon Clip Featuring ‘The Rich’ Urinating on the Poor

A new animated video released by the California Federation of Teachers shows the rich “1 percent” urinating on and stealing money from the less fortunate and middle class. The purpose of the video is to explain “economic inequality” and the need for wealthy people to pay their “fair share of taxes.”

The video argues that the rich got richer by evading taxes and using loopholes to hold onto their money. The union claims this is why Congress needs to repeal Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans . . .

Here is how CFT summarizes its new cartoon video:

“Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale, is narrated by Ed Asner, with animation by award-winning artist Mike Konopacki, and written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers. The 8 minute video shows how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality. Things go downhill in a happy and prosperous land after the rich decide they don’t want to pay taxes anymore. They tell the people that there is no alternative, but the people aren’t so sure. This land bears a startling resemblance to our land. After you watch this video, click here to share with friends, and send an email to your elected officials to let them know they need to restore higher federal tax rates on the wealthy so that we may once more enjoy properly funded public services.”

    Tax/charge the dam illegal’s to attend our schools. BS Tax everyone or no one! NO TAXES FILED THEY PAY FOR EDUCATION. THEY LIE CHEAT & RECEIVE FAR TO MANY BENEFITS THAT SHOULD BE GOING TO LEGAL AMERICANS THAT FILE TAXES. SCHOOLS ARE OVERCROWDED & CA DUMB-DOWNS TO GET MOST OF THEM THROUGH THE SYSTEM. We are the bottom of the list for education remember. VIDEO SHOWS NO CLASS! Teachers lets not forget that many thriving business’s give to our schools over & over throughout the year. This is how those business are repaid. DISAGREE!!! IF EVERYONE ISN’T FILING TAXES ITS UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO INCREASE ON THE RICH, SOUNDS LIKE DISCRIMINATION. The IRS is a joke, triple city sales tax & do away with the IRS. Then it would be fair as the illegals would be putting some funds that could be dispersed to help with schools, roads etc. PS ENGLISH IS OUR LANGUAGE STOP ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE IT!

    how pathetic …

  • Perhaps someone should post a video of these union thugs mugging and robbing an innocent minority called people who earned their money the hard way.

    This whole whole proposal of “taxing the rich” is nothing more than mob behavior. I guess these people have not read Frederick Bastiat.

    Bastiat pointed out that this operation is nothing more than “legalized plunder.” We the people supposedly give government its power, but none of us may give that which we do not have and none of us has the authority to take property from others by use of coercive force and without their consent.

    Under Obama, this federal government is run more like the mafia. Obama is the enforcer extracting protection money from businesses. Don’t cooperate with him and you may get a broken leg or worse. They are nothing more than thieves operating under the guise of legitimacy.

    Let all the taxes by Bush expire. Then agree to new tax cuts for the “non-rich”. But these must be balanced by exact, present day spending cuts. Not cuts in growth, or off in the future, but dollar for dollar cuts.
    Simple, yet Rep politicians seem incapable of saying this simple message. Cut the actual dollars spent, dollar for dollar with actual taxes reduced.
    Agree to tax the rich, then watch as Obama et al change their song, again. We could at least get a laugh from it.

    The video is outright Communist style propaganda.

      yes, but you see that it originates in that cesspool, Californication..people with principles and a desire to succeed in the real America are leaving, and more welfare recipients are coming in from the south…..
