Asner is just another one of millions who don't understand people being accountable, having free will, being responsible and making a contribution to society by doing so. However, I am not letting businesses or the wealthy off the hook either. Every time we have a recession, grocery, gas and other consumer prices skyrocket. Businesses pay rock bottom wages because a lot of people are out of work and they are so desperate they will take anything. That is greed. As my mother once told me, business doesn't pay taxes-we do. The wealthy have tax write-offs, loopholes and shelters. How do you think they remain wealthy? Many of the small businesses either go bankrupt or just fold because they can't compete. We have become a society with little regard for our fellow human beings and until we do, God will not bless this nation.
If Mr. Asner is a true socialist, as he professes, then he should turn in all of his ill-gotten gains to the communal kitty for general good. If he is so brash to deny that, then he makes a liar out of himself. Let him live as do the majority of us then. I'd bet money that he would not!
Would somebody that is a conservative please BUY time and explain the truth. BTW what a coincidence that this video comes out AFTER a tax increase in CA! Ed GO TO HELL!
This is what's called MARXISM!
Marx's entire sales pitch centered around class struggle and demonizing the bourgeois class (upper middle class at the time, but really the upper class).
According to Britannica:
"In Marxist theory, the bourgeoisie plays a heroic role by revolutionizing industry and modernizing society. However, it also seeks to monopolize the benefits of this modernization by exploiting the propertyless proletariat [the poor] and thereby creating revolutionary tensions. The end result, according to Marx, will be a final revolution in which the property of the bourgeoisie is expropriated and class conflict, exploitation, and the state are abolished. Even in Marx’s lifetime, however, it was clear that the bourgeoisie was neither homogeneous nor particularly inclined to play the role that he had assigned to it."
Does all of this sound familiar?
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need".
"Share the wealth"
When I was an ignorant young liberal, my father used to call me 'a product of the California educational system'.
Once I finally grew up with children of my own in California schools, I figured out what he meant.
"If God is dead someone will have to take His place, it will be either megalomania or erotomania, the drive for power or the drive for pleasure, the clinched fist or the phallus, Hitler or Hugh Heffner." -- Malcolm Muggeridge
They have enough money to do an ad but not enough to teach children or have a solvent pension. Typical. It would be more accurate if it was the unions or O doing that instead of the 'rich' people in the vid.
Reality: Those evil rich are the Government pretenders and usurpers. It is depicted by Marxist Educators as Capitalists; with the truth that Capitalism has been regulated out of existence in America since WWI naturally being intentionally omitted. The destruction of America continuing at warp speed.
Do so in Ruskie, the little jumped up Commie will appreciate it more:
Russians use “Thank you” in all the same situations as in other countries. If you are grateful and would like to express it, you can either say СПАСИБО, pronounced as SPAH-SEE-BAH, which means THANK YOU or you can also say БОЛЬШОЕ СПАСИБО, pronounced as BAHL-SHOH-YE SPAH-SEE-BAH, which means THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Note that literally you are saying “big thank you”. Большой (bahl-shoy) in Russian stands for big or grand.
@WolfieI see the vast majority of conservatives are as stupid and shallow and their liberal counterparts. Russians are not inherently Communist. Indeed, Communist came from Germany. Russia is an oligarchy, much like the US, although the abuses in the US aren't as overt as they are in Russia (the US government and corrupt corporatists use more subtle means, although both Bushie and Obamba have been putting more squeeze on the public as they work hand in hand with arrogant CEOs). The question is: what is the right way to govern a given society at the given point in time. Republics and democracies aren't always the best form, which true conservatives will tell you (not the neocon closeted lefitst filth). When a the mob starts to endanger the good of the good people, you bet monarchies are better.
And way to make an ass of yourself, citing Yahoo! Answer. Clearly you're that caliber of people.
If this is what California teachers want to pay for (I assume they pay dues - maybe not), then, I have no problem with them fantasizing or acting out all they want.
When this $hit hits the schools, that is when I (all of us) have a problem. The real sad part is that this mindset is already ingrained in much of the population. Our great president plays to this group all the time using them to achieve his purpose.
Another sad point is that our public education is creating teachers who, as a group, are stupid enough to believe and allow this sort of crap! Whether the cartoon shows or no, the ideology will be absorbed by our children.. Parents must remove their children from this poison if there is any possible way. I know that many have no choice.
CTF, NEA , clearly why Americans and illigels are getting smarter.....NOT!
they are taught to come to the alter of the MacDaddy and the democrate party of perverted sleeze bags.
Sickening. Indoctrinating? Of course they are and have been for decades. I don't blame the Leftists though. As a Christian....I blame Christians. The majority of the population are Christians or at the very least believe in God to some degree. What does that mean? It means that Christians are lazy and seem to not find the time to go to school board meetings and fight ALL the things that are being hoisted on our children. Its just to damn inconvenient. The Leftists fight relentlessly to indoctrinate our children and win and they are the minority. They have fortitude. We don't.
Christians, stop bitching. Christians are responsible because they do nothing. You are the majority and there is no excuse. If you have kids then get of your ass and put the Good Book to work or just throw it out.
It is sad. Its also sad that you seem to be the only one who agrees with me. The Devil knows where his bread and butter is and that's the kids. He'll get them any which way he can. Through the parents through the schools or through propaganda like this. I'm extremely disappointed with our lack of fight for our children. We are harming our children just as badly as the progressives but just in different ways. They walk too and fro looking for who they can devour and we just look.
Family is doing great. My beautiful daughter is the light of my life and that's why I'm so concerned. I feel I will have little help from my brothers and sisters in The Lord Jesus Christ. I now see why the end times are upon us at this juncture. God has seen enough of our white flag waiving selves.
Do not lose hope for her future, she will learn better than most and will probably become a leader if she is able. There is great need and amazingly our LORD does provide in times if great need if we continue to believe and follow HIS dictates, not earthly guises of them.
I will if need be. She will not go to public schools. Period. She will go to a Christian school. There is one about ten miles from my house and its really great. A little expensive but Ill do anything to make it happen. What stinks is that I still have to pay taxes for the public schools. What a rip off.
THere are more of us out here Ryan. Just not those who are supposed to be the leaders. So many Christians who follow after the ear ticklers, who don't see the evil spread in the schools and universities. I once tried to offer a apologetics and history class at my old church when they asked for teacher volunteers. There were a lot of teens at the church, and I had taught some of our home school co op kids the same subject and some of them had never heard the things I was teaching before. I'm not the best teacher, but they were interested and glad to learn. Anyway, my point was that many Christian teens who are raised in the church, and even some who are homeschooled will go off to university, their parents believe their kids are strong believers- but put into liberal/humanist/leftist atmosphere, these kids in many cases lose their beliefs. Even in theological seminaries leftist crap is taught. I read a sad poll a few years ago, showing that kids going into places like Wheaton didn't even know who wrote the Gospels, didn't know what Easter was all about! I can't remember the names of some of the seminary schools, but seems the professors in some of these schools don't even teach the doctrine of the cross, sin and redemption!
To make a long story short, the church declined my offer, as they felt it was not a needed course. My heart breaks for Christian kids who are sent into the pack of wolves. Their parents don't bother being witnesses in their work places, yet they expect their kids to be at public schools?!
Are you guys planning on homeschooling your daughter Ryan? If you ever have any questions about it, I'd be glad to help!
Joseph Goebbels must be looking up from the pits of hell, smiling and thinking "What a beautifully crafted piece of propaganda, I'd be hard pressed to beat that!"
They say it's not for children... But you just know they'll be showing it to them. Why else animate it like a children's cartoon if it was not to be aimed at them ultimately!
Couldn't bear to watch the whole thing, it was so bad.
If the makers of that video had put hooked, i.e. Jewish, noses on 'the rich' people, this video could've been shown in Nazi Germany, no problem.
There's no difference between the socialists and the fascists, no matter how loudly the left squeal when you say so.
Mussolini was a lifelong Socialist and atheist. He used to challenge the God he didn't believe in, in his speeches. "Hey God, where are you? If you exist, strike me down right now!" Then he'd often cross his arms and wait a few seconds and continue his speech.
Antonio Banderas played Mussolini in a movie about his life that was quite accurate. It's several hours long.
The world's most heinous genocidal "leaders" were all atheists, and either socialist or communists.
Cartoons like this above are the recipe for genocide. The world really wants to travel this road again?
I would ask Jesus to beam me up, but I'd rather kick the living fool out of people that produce this kind of sewage, first. Call it ambition. Call it righteous indignation, just don't call it a waste of time...please.
@Rshill7 Why? Why can't you just mind your own business. If people want to believe this crap, that's their freedom. Don't be a nosy bumpkin. When they start forcing you to do things, then you have a basis. For now, use argument.
Both neocons and neolibs seem to be disingenuous. They're angry people, resentment and mediocre, and want to blame someone for their dissatisfaction in life, for their own shortcomings and inferiority. They're just looking for a scapegoat to vent their anger on. Sick. It's obnoxious, so cut it out. If you were truly conservative, you were say "well, that's stupid. I won't be showing my kids any of that." and if the occasion should arise, you'll have the reasoned arguments to present to another person. You can't force another to believe what you want, and you don't have that right. Ultimately, you are powerless here. If the chair is uncomfortable, sit somewhere else.
This is how ALL fascists end up (warning...gruesome):
These are images would-be fascists should consider before they push their fanatical ideologies down people's throats, because this is how it ALWAYS ends for them.
During my military time, I only visited California twice. Both times were to the National Training Center at Ft. Irwin Ca. Thank goodness it was only twice.
IMHO California suffers from its own trap of if it feels good do it. Too many residents in California want to do nothing and live free from the worry of all responsibilities. This mentality of do nothing and have the state take care of me has caused not only the financial ruin of the golden state, but the moral decay of a once great state as well. With the liberal media placing the blame on all rich people, the actors that call Hollywood home, have no choice but to sing along in fear of being exposed as one of the rich, and by association being condemned along with the evil rich people. These sicknesses, that infect many in California, also drive elections within the state as well. No politician wanting to represent California would ever speak against the entitlements that many in California receive. (they wouldn’t stand a chance) This is the only reason a washed up person like Nancy Pelosi, is re-elected so easily. Mrs. Pelosi tells the citizens of California that she will continue to seek the destruction of those evil corporate CEO’s and take their money and give it to the down trodden of California. Of course they believe her, even though in reality, California falls further and further in debt because too many politicians keep the money in the form of ear marks and bribes.
My fear is that too many states are heading in the same direction.
@armyvet10 Don't rationalize the actors. Hollywood is a liberal establishment. Although I will admit that actors are (willingly or not) put in the limelight by the media which is always a tool of government or corporate interests (both are as bad, so don't pull that asinine crap about "corporation = good" "gov't = bad"). The corporate system is a corrupt and ideologically socialist idea (Hitler and Mussolini were corporatists and syndacalists). What we should have are stakeholders not shareholders. Each employee should have a state in the company and be a part owner. The CEO shouldn't be some grandmaster who can do whatever he wants. He should serve his company. That's the Christian way, not this pagan "I'm at the top, I'm a God" bull, because he's not at the top, he's leading but leadership doesn't mean he's some father figure or god. When you part own a company, you care about it because you're entering into a relationship with other people for a common end. When you have the employee/employer relationship, the employee doesn't work for the a common good he share, but the good of the stock holders (which includes the CEO). He's compensated for his working for the good of "the company" (which is just a hand-wavy way of saying "the stockholders") through a salary (which is nothing to be grateful about, since this isn't charity, it's an exchange). The corporate model is highly flawed and tyrannical. Americans have been brainwashed into accepting it. Leftists success is partly the effect of demoralization but likewise genuinely tyrannical structures which exist in not just American society, but other societies. It is a documented fact that many CEOs are narcissists. To make matters worse, they're often incompetent narcissists no better than the government. Private isn't always good. Public isn't always good. We need more decentralization, but certain regulation has to exist because the free market isn't the amgic self-correcting machine naive idiots like to think it is (hell, Adam Smith admits as much). Free markets must exist within certain constraints. We need the right balance. and decentralization. No one sticks their nose in my business as long as I'm not hurting anyone. The correct line between public/private needs to be drawn. Neocons and neolibs are both just as bad at drawing it because secretly their cryptosocialists and morons.
Not everyone in CA is in the basement thinking mode! We are at this point outnumbered, but we will not give up or give in. Sorry that your experience here was such a poor representation of what Californians have been all about for 150 years. The crooks are ahead right now, but they will not always be so!!
Thanks for your response. After reading your response, then re-reading mine, I can see how my post could be easily interpreted as all encompassing, and for that I am sorry. I would never say to anyone that every single person in a state is a bad person. For that matter, I wouldn't even suggest that every single person in a city is bad either. I suppose a better way to have said this is that many in California; instead of just listing California as a whole. Thanks again for standing up for yourself and others in California that wish to have their great state back.
Pete Wilson was the only governor that I was ever happy to have. I was there in the nineties, and got to watch affirmative action defeated, and implemented by executive order. It was great. I am sure that it has all been lost and reverted back by now.
This is primarily for firming up Democrats and liberal activists in the right way to think, not school children...
But the mindset is basically the same...
Now you understand how propaganda works. Rich Eddy would have felt very comfortable working for Hitler.
I think they should redo this video & replace the “rich people” with politicians then it would make more sense!
This Alinsky-Marx presentation was brought to you by Solyndra.
Solyndra: "Green" is our motto. Taxpayer "green$$$" laundering is our business.
No surprise this came from the sh*t hole of the country...my state. I thought for sure they would show the rich defecating on the children.
This is why I homeschool my child...she has never stepped foot in a California public school.
