I knew it would take something brutal to rouse me from a self-induced Downton Abbey haze… and here it is:
The Kalifornia Teachers Union has produced and released a new video for the classroom. I saw red 48 seconds in; see how long you last…
[Video taken down by Kalifornia Teachers]
“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.”
So, the progressive narrative is more deeply embedded with every school year. Alinsky would be so proud.
UPATED to add logical, common sense video explaining all the ways in which the teacher’s union made mistakes. I even missed a couple!
Thank you Patti!
