California Federation Of Teachers To America: There’s A Rich Guy – Get Him!

Here in the Golden State where I reside, at least until I can no longer afford the geography tax called Prop. 30 that we voted ourselves, the California Federations of Teachers Union just successfully demonized the rich. It worked. They got their way. The rich are going to pay more, allegedly to the schools. But you know the money will never get there. It’s going to the unions, who control the Democrats in Sacramento.
Not satisfied with resting on their laurels, however, the CFTU has decided to branch out. As California goes, so goes the nation. Marxism isn’t coming, friends, it’s here. And it’s animated. It’s even narrated by Ed Asner, who uses his grandpa voice so that even the kiddies will wonder why rich people hate us so.
I got a very interesting reaction when I played this for our Hughniverse audience last night. Most people begged me to turn it off, because it was too hard to watch. I say you have to watch it. We’ve ceded too much ground already, and aren’t just losing the battle, we’re not even willing to see what the other side is up to anymore. We ignore this at our peril.
By the way, according to the caption at Breitbart, where I originally found this video, this bit was written and produced by Fred Glass, who is a CFTU staffer. Allegedly, he pulled down a salary of $139,800 in 2011. I’m sure he’ll get a nice pension when he retires after a long and prosperous career of brainwashing. Think one school would have turned down an additional $140,000 if it would have been offered to them rather than being ciphoned, either by the legislature or through union dues, or both, to a untion thug?
