Oopsies. Evidently the California Federation of Teachers realized it wasn’t such a bright idea to demonstrate “economic inequality” by having animated one-percenters urinate on poor people. After significant backlash, the union appears to have quietly cut the repulsive scene from the propaganda video narrated by far Left Hollyweirdo Ed Asner. The original video is now listed as private on YouTube.

The most disgusting portion of the video has been replaced by a still scene, sans urination, on the CFT website. The segment starts at about the 2:50 mark:

But just because the union is backing down doesn’t mean Asner is willing to distance himself from the proud statement he made on behalf of California teachers.

Yep, as Sean Hannity revealed on his Wednesday evening TV program, Asner actually said that to a Fox News producer who asked him if he remembered narrating the video. Because he’s totally For the Children™, natch.

Visit NewsBusters for a transcript of the exchange.

As Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin notes, Asner has a history of anti-free speech thuggery and 9/11 trutherism — y’know, the classic signs of liberal civility.

    Propaganda. Have you noticed the overwhelming amount of cartoons for adults? All part of the dumbing-down process – treat adults like children.

    • RightThinking1

      I’m thinking that the dumbing-down is about complete. Now the object is to shovel propaganda into their brains, using means appropriate to their intellectually-arrested state. “Life of Julia” comes to mind….

    • John (it true me am)

      Animation for adults has nothing to do with the dumbing down process… It is a form of media, no different than any other. That’s just generational bias to assume “cartoons” are inherently less intelligent somehow simply because it is a medium that has only recently been realized due to technological advances.

      • MSpence

        The message is childish and it is a lie.

        • Lynelle Hullsiek

          And it will work. Sadly.

        • John (it true me am)

          The reply was about animation in general, as the poster greatly widened his post beyond the scope of this propoganda cartoon. Of course this specific piece is ridiculous, but it is ridiculous because of its content not because it is animated.

      • Don Miller

        John, it’s a medium that eliminates actors and makes use of artists who are willing to work for a great deal less. Voice-over talent is also paid less that on-screen talent. It IS a dumbing down medium that is also less personal than using live people. Do you also still read comic books?

        • John (it true me am)

          You can’t seriously be decrying animation because it “hurts actors”. You might as well say Stephen King takes away money from Tom Cruise. Voice over talent is paid less because on screen talent is paid far too much.

          Less personal? You mean like TV is over going to a stage production? Again, almost certainly a generational divide coming into play. And how exactly do you get “less personal” equates to dumbing down? All I have to say to that is Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

          As for your final jab about comic books, that tells me all I need to know about your attitude on the subject. Fun fact: After WW2 Japanese comic books, “manga”, achieved widespread popularity because it was a cheap form of entertainment among both kids and adults. It was in fact the only form of entertainment many people could afford for decades as the country rebuilt and developed it’s broadcast infrastructure. As a result many of those who grew up in post WW2 Japan continued to go to their favored medium even as they grew older. It became even more prevalent in the newer generations. As in the very people who went on to become one of the world’s most advanced technological nations through anything but “dumbing down”.

          It is this dismissive attitude towards modern culture, that is costing us in elections.

          And at the end of the day, the growing influence of animation is a direct result of technological advances, making it cheaper and easier to produce. It makes it a more efficient platform to dessiminate ideas and stories as the market demands. I couldn’t imagine anything more conservative.

      • DixieAngel_76

        @ John, there is nothing intelligent about this cartoon, and I really found the tone and content to be more suited to first graders than adults. If it was in fact meant for adults, and I have my doubts about that, then it is incredibly condescending, and that is not ‘generational bias’ it’s fact.

        • FGCU_James

          Yeah, this cartoon is pretty dumb. In fact, it’s flippin’ stupid.

          Doesn’t mean cartoons in general are dumb.

        • John (it true me am)

          As I said to another reply, I was speaking of animation in general as the original poster I replied to widened his scope beyond this propoganda clip. My post was in no way defense of this ridiculous garbage, but of animation as a medium.

          • Grumpa Grumpus

            @John:
            Excellent defense of the medium.
            As a 96 yr old, I remember when “Talkies” were still new.

            And radio, with the tubes that took 15minutes to completely heat up—

            And television… black & white (goodness! how racist!) and the huge 8-inch screens!

            Not to mention color television!

            My anime is hard to pick. I like Bleach, but there are many that retell Japanese folk tales or history, and these are usually excellent— too excellect to fairly pick a favorite. (Ro Roni Kensian… don’t know if I spelled that correctly…)

            And I admit I’m a romantic, so I do like anime like inu yaska, basically what my grandchildren call a “chick-flick”.

            And what more wholesome story created by man is there than the complete DragonballZ series? One the value of its content it should rank with anything produced by Shakespeare, Melville, or Dickens.

            Soon the “big-name but small-talent” Hollywood crowd find themselves replaced by created people. Oopsi Goldblurp, The Baldwins-1, The Red Fonda sisters, Meathead Rob Riener, etc, will all find themselves priced out of the running. That’ll be a good thing.

            Again, good job with the defense of media!

      • Joseph Phillips

        Maybe you’re an animator or artist, that’s great…. but, cartoons, like this one, is silly and childish. If it’s meant for adults it’s really sad. I concur it takes great talent to make a cartoon – more than I have! – but to present big ideas for adults in a cartoon is demeaning, dumb, and treats adults like children.

        • John (it true me am)

          I am neither an animator or an artist, I am simply someone familiar with the medium. This piece of propoganda is hardly indicative of animation as a whole, particularly considering it specifically attempts to achieve a retro style. I was speaking of animation in general.

          As for big ideas for adults in a cartoon, what’s wrong with that? They are graphical representions, nothing more nothing less. There is no more inherent fault with animation than a pie chart.

      • Lynelle Hullsiek

        I disagree, though I adore cartoons (some). The bright colors and exaggerated sounds absolutely attract the less sophisticated mind and pull it in more. Whereas traditional adults would be turned off by the garishness. Now, because we’ve been inundated with so much propaganda, it affects all of us.

        • John (it true me am)

          That’s just not true. You think of cartoons in the scope of what you perceive, not what actually exists. Case in point, half of Japan’s animation. Or sticking with the U.S., the 90’s era Spawn animated series or recent more mature and darker Marvel and DC animated movies. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns or Year One has probably not a single bright color in it.

      • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Agree, see my above, also consider that one 7 minute Bugs Bunny cartoon from the 40s or 50s is more intelligent and entertaining than a whole season of most current shows.

        • $36544368

          There were political references in Bugs Bunny cartoons that I didn’t understand until I got older. A relative of mine once told me that those cartoons were originally meant for adults…not sure about that, but I do remember some of the political references. But they were about America (and America was always winning!) in general, not class warfare.

          • TexSizzle

            I loved The Bullwinkle Show as a child, and when I saw it again as an adult, I realized it too was intended for adults as much as for children.

    • DixieAngel_76

      Really Joseph, I wonder if it WAS meant for adults. I wonder if they didn’t really make it to show to students on our dime. Remember folks, class time is not supposed to be used for this type of thing.

      • Joseph Phillips

        Good point! I also look though at the commercial, like GEICO, the Cartoon Network, even a show “Comic Book Men…” We, as a society, just aren’t very deep thinkers anymore. It might be a cheaper medium to express ideas, entertainment, and sales, but it’s also treating adults like children.

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          You may be right about a lot not being deep thinkers any more, but that isn’t a function of any particular medium. A lot of live TV (American) is as shallow as a teleprompter speech, whereas quite a bit of Japanese anime is not only adult-oriented (not in the sense of “adult”=”x-rated” — though there is that too), but some of it is actually quite thoughtful and intellectually engaging.

          • Joseph Phillips

            How does it feel to always be wrong, Mr. Troll? Reading is a medium that promotes deep thinking. You should try it some time! It’ll hurt your pea-sized brain at first, but after awhile it’ll feel all better.

          • John (it true me am)

            I said it in my other post and i’ll say it again here. You are suffering from severe generational bias.

            Oh. And yes, I read. Not to get into an Ed Asner style pissing contest, simply to proactively curb any “you probably just read a few Goosebumps” but I’ve read thousands of books from both modern pop authors such as Koontz or Patterson and the masters of the near past from Doyle, Poe or Dumas to eastern classical works such as Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Yet I still love animation. Strange.

            Funny thing is… Books? Also not inherently thought provoking simply because they are books. Or do you care to argue that Stephanie Meyer is somehow superior to Miyazaki simply because one put their words down on paper and the other expressed themself through masterpieces of animation?

            It is the expression not the medium. Animation can be just as powerful as literature. Live-action television, movies, stage productions, radio broadcasts… there is no inherent superiority in any of them. They are all modes of expression, nothing more.

            Generational bias, heal thyself.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

        Yes, he did have a good role in MTM’s show, and even later in his own spin-off. I’ve even seen him in a couple of good made for TV movies, but being a good actor doesn’t make one a good citizen, and he is certainly proof of that. You should be ashamed, Ed!

    The consummate socialist and hypocrite, Asner went around the TV talkshow circuit, screeching for guns to be outlawed,…..that is until it was discovered that Asner himself had a concealed weapons permit, and regularly carried a gun.

They call republicans racists when we use terms such as ‘incompetent’ — but they use derogatory and sexist innuendos and they are for the minorities. Bullsh*t. Liberals are the most hypocritical group of people to have ever walked this earth. Their double standard for everything is disgusting and makes me sick. How people can be so deranged and unhinged and plain rude is beyond me. Every day goes by and I lose more and more respect for liberals, even people I have considered friends for years. They have lost their mind. When America turns into Russia circa 1950 then those same people who fought for these socialist politicians and policies will be protesting and up in arms because their freedoms have been taken away along with their entitlements and toys.

      @Annabelle Smithson:

      You’ll be lucky if the United States of America becomes the Soviet Union of the 1950s. I think the indications are that our masters are shooting for a much earlier period of Soviet history.

      That’s why they’re working so hard to create a holodomor here.

      The Progressives world-wide have, for the last decade&ahalf, been shoveling propaganda that the Earth’s “proper” population is about ¾ths of a billion. And certainly not its current amount!

      Aires, The Unrepentant Terrorist Bomber of Families with Children, himself has written that the “proper” population of the United States of America is about 190million because the difficulty of controlling a larger population than that quickly becomes problematic.

      Has anyone else noticed the talk of control of the populace is being bandied about more openly and more frequently by the Progressive “Luminaries”?

      Footnotes:
      *¹: Out of respect I won’t abbreviate the proper names of the dead.

      *²: the number “¾ths of a billion” is drawn from my memory, and I freely admit I could be mistaken. It certainly isn’t more than 2billion.

    Yes, i was going to say that Asner is in reality talking about himself and his kind of people. The narcissistic, two faced, manipuative type that both despises injustice and commits injustice at the same time but has an excuse for the latter. I love you Michelle, your the best.

  • terrisarten

    I still want to edit the video and add some pictures and voiceover. First, I would add a section called, these are the people who are hoarding the money. My voiceover would be something like:

    Meet Bill Gates. Did you know he is the richest man in the US and the second riches man in the world? And he is a Democrat. Kids, can you see how evil those RICH DEMOCRATS are? Bill Gates has $61 Billion dollars. That is more money than most of the 50 states annual budgets. Blah blah.

    We do a few of those videos I am willing to wager we won’t see any more of this sh*t.

  • DixieAngel_76

    Asner and others of his ilk are of course free at any time to donate all that they have to the teachers’ unions, but don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. They are hypocrites of the highest order.

    PS, does anyone, after watching this condescending video, and listening to the pedantic narrative really believe it was made for adults? I would be willing to bet good money that they were planning to show it to students during class time in order to better indoctrinate them.

    • http://www.righthook38.com righthook38

      Of course they were! So glad my kids know better than to believe this garbage. Sadly, many of them don’t, and too many parents have no clue what’s going on in their schools. I live in a heavily Republican district, so I don’t see a lot of this stuff, but we do have a few teachers who believe differently, and my son and his friends aren’t afraid to challenge them. I love that!

  • edleary1227

    You keep spelling his name wrong … It’s Ed ASSner.

  • rivers

    Ed Asner’s got money. Reported net worth is 1.5 million. Considering his voiceover work in UP, and his residuals, that’s pretty fishy – I think Ed’s accountants have been doing some money shuffling. Still, even @ 1.5 million, that puts you in the 1 percent, Ed. Can I piss on you?

  • $23629333

    Michael Savage insists that liberalism is a mental disease. I’m not sure if I agree; I believe that liberalism is symptomatic of a mental disease.

    What do we find with most liberals? They’re absolutely indifferent to and unconcerned about the feelings and needs of others. Meanwhile their own skin is as thin as rice paper. Add an unhealthy dose of paranoia, and you have someone with his or her nose always out of joint.

    That paranoia, and the resulting fear that people might look unapprovingly at them may be the source of their concern with “appearances.” From the moment they walk out the front door and until they return home, they are determined to always say and do the politically correct thing. They haven’t yet learned that they’re undermining their public performance with their tweets.

    • Silenttype78

      I agree with you that modern liberalism is a symptom of a mental illness,not the illness itself.
      I believe that the illness itself has something to do with the inability of lib-progs to learn from negative experiences,less organized,less concerned with stability. and less able determine threats.
      Lib-progs (as I have always believed) are unable to understand cause and effect.) Why? Because to do this you must be able to link bad ideas with negative outcomes. I wonder how many times a liberal would have to get stung by a bee before they determined that it was because they were sticking their hand in a bee hive.
      Pffft…. Even then,they would be quick to tell you that you can’t judge “all bees” the same way,because not all bees sting people (plus,they have a right to be mad and sting people because they were doing just fine before the white man came and stole their honey and made them poor.)

  • goldwater89

    Even though Asner is a leftist loon you do have to give him credit for never running away. He’s gone on O’Reilly and Hannity numerous times. Most of these Hollywood liberals are cowards who would rather hide than discuss their politics with someone from the Right.

    • Saruman

      Sure. absolutely. Still, Ole Ed needs to take a trip of a few weeks and visit places like Iraq, iran and asscrackistan to get a reallly good perspective on things. Of course, there’s a good chance he wouldn’t make it back here, being that he is one of the “Ugly Americans”. All we can hope for.

    • vino veritas

      Yet he did run away from taking responsibility for his own work in
      supporting this video and its vile narrative when confronted on it by
      that Fox News producer. He was clearly being arrogant & facetious though, as you could tell the hostility he had for the producer and, by extension, FNC when responding to his questions, especially when he asks the producer if he can “piss on you”. BTW, I believe he was drunk (or under the influence of some drug) at the time of that street interview. You could see it if one noticed his slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and his swaying/unstable demeanor. The man seems to be a massive train wreck waiting to happen.

    2 words……..Spongebob Squarepants. Totally dumbs down our children. I remember growing up, cartoons had moral messages at the end of every episode. I let my children watch boomerang a whole lot more than any other station because those cartoons actually teach things. There are others of course, but they seem to love most of the cartoons on that station. Don’t get me wrong there are a few on this station that are idiotic, but better than nickolodeon, disney, cartoon network…….Adventure Time??? God, what an awful show!!!!

    • Silenttype78

      I love Adventure Time!
      I love cartoons period! It’s probably because all other areas of my life are pretty serious….and because I am such a cynical person…guess I just need some sort of balance.
      I do not really think cartoons are to blame,but the fact that young kids are babysat by a television from the time they are dropped off at a day care center until they go to bed at night.
      Blaming cartoons for social stupidity and decay is,in my humble opinion, a bit like blaming guns for killing people.

      I am going to pull my super sexist card-
      Society was better off when moms were at home. There is no task more important to society than motherhood. When feminism took root and more women decided that they could “have it all’ the family unit began to deteriorate.
      Toss in welfare, the decline of religious importance,public indoctrination centers,and viola-social rot!

  • qcjagtitan

    That was one of the most idiotic things I have ever seen. How embarrassing to even have your name attached to this stupid video. This one outshines the anti Muslim video for stupidity. WOW and to think it came from a rich person.

  • vino veritas

    As Michelle noted, there are real examples of these socialism-loving corrupt crybabies on the left urinating and defecating on other people’s property when they don’t get their way, or even when they do! These propagandists, in contrast, have to make up garbage in order to get attention. They will never fess up to the actions of their own ideological ilk but wantonly lie, misrepresent and disparage those who disagree with them. Hopefully Californians have had just about enough of them and will finally express their displeasure with these lying socialist pigs at the ballot box. If that happens, there is a very good chance the rest of the country would follow. It is hard to believe California could lead on anything sensible, though.

    Geeze,
    talk about having your facts way wrong! NOBODY paid those old tax
    rates! (Nobody can fire teachers in most states and the school system is
    failing. Homeowers “did” go over their heads with home-loans; thanks to
    groups like acorn lobbying congress to force banks to give lower middle
    class people loans they could never afford. And rich people “did” come
    out and take blame for it; even going as far as to site “corporate greed
    and collusion” with the federal government! Ed forgets the total lack
    of sensible regulation and the rampant Government Cronyism which allowed
    this COLLAPSE.) Funny how Ed the commie leaves out the ENORMOUS hand
    the federal government had in it! The only responsible entity in this
    entire question (THE GOVERNMENT) who had the authority and POWER to stop
    it, that is who should be punished. But Genius Ed Asner wants to trust
    them with our healthcare and more. Truth be told he would like us all to
    lay our heads on a chopping block, hand them the axe, and thank them
    for it!

    First of all, Thank You Folks! for preserving what “true” American Patriots have done. Is Ed Asner one of the 1%? Not even close! Is he rich or powerful? Wealthier and more powerful than the poor people he is supporting; there is no doubt.

    The Declaration of Independence says:

    “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

    Like Ed Asner, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were not among those who were being reduced to absolute despotism by corruption government; they saw what was wrong and acted in righteousness to defeat the American evil; TRUE American Patriots.

    Isaiah spoke the word of your GOD millenniums ago even though you obviously reject HIS existence:

    As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
    The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
    The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
    What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the LORD GOD of hosts.

    This evil and corrupt political machine entered the US White house grinding his feet upon the faces of the poor, claiming to help them; while selling their children into absolute despotism slavery; completely enslaved by debt service while lifting up the super wealthy upon the breaking backs of the average.

    Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin, Your shame is self evident. That is my only “political correct” statement. (Political correctness is the proposition that one can handle crap by it’s clean sides).
