Ed Asner: Truth or Truther?
If you’re still one of the few left wondering why California is such a fiscal disaster, it may be in part because they spend their money on videos like this. Tax The Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale is the newest attempt by the left to blame every problem in America on the wealthy. The video is paid for by the California Federation of Teachers, which should strike fear into the hearts of anyone with a child in the California school system. The narrator, Ed Asner, who is worth an estimated $1.5 million, is one of the countless celebrities who love the demonize “the 1%” while not volunteering to pay a penny more than they owe in taxes. He also is part of a select group of Americans who support bigger government, yet blame the government for 9/11. Yes friends, Ed Asner is a 9/11 truther. A very vocal truther.
Setting aside the fact that California teachers are paying for a 9/11 truther to indoctrinate the public, the message itself is one with which must be dealt. Luckily, vlogger Lee Doren took the time to investigate the “facts” presented by Asner. If there is any humor to be found in this blatant propaganda, it’s that the video is presented in cartoon fashion. Because even those on the left know that their adherents need their lies to be dumbed down.
