What's the input you submitted to the translator? –  TactMayers Aug 25 at 8:41
    
I used Google translator and wrote these words 于 毛 王 床 and got this translation - Yu Mao king bed –  Pankaj Aug 25 at 8:51

This means we are loyal to Chairman Mao.

It's not 于毛王床,it's 忠于毛主席 –  user6269 Aug 25 at 9:13
    
user6269 is right. Answer seems to be wrong. –  Steve Aug 25 at 13:17

The characters read:

忠于毛主席
Zhōng yú Máo zhǔxí

忠 means faithful, 于 is a multi-use preposition which, to me, sounds a bit archaic/formal, and here means "to", but can also mean "in" or "on", 毛 is Mao Zedong's surname, and 主席 means "chairman". So this translates to "Faithful to Chairman Mao". By the way, if you give the correct characters to Google, the translation it gives is Loyal to Chairman Mao.
