No soup for you!
Irony (and hypocrisy) Alert! It's getting harder to tell the homeless drifters and grifters apart from the whiny yuppie protesters!
The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday -- because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
"Organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad..." This is the idea of "roughing it" among the 99% who have it tough?? And then to think that common people who are merely homeless or maybe just released from jail might consider themselves as part of the 99% who are not the country's wealthiest individuals...where on earth would they get that idea?
As the kitchen workers met with the "General Assembly" last night, about 300 demonstrators stormed from the park to Reade Street and Broadway, where they violently clashed with cops
The "General Assembly"? Who do these guys think they are? The U freakin' N??? Already elements of #OccupyMom'sBasement are coming apart at the seams. How do you equally distribute, (share the wealth, if you will), all the money donated by Soros and others to keep Obama@OccupyWhiteHouse afloat? Why does one group get to watch movies on a "huge flat screen TV" purchased with the community's cash, while others scrounge for quarters to do tons of wet laundry? And now, poachers in the food lines.
The bourgeois roots of the Occupy Wall Street mobocracy are nowhere more apparent than here. Yes, they carry their iphones and laptops down to the protest against the mean and evil corporations, except for the ones they can't live without, and they sit in front of the banks that loaned them the money to get their Ivy League educations, like the ingrates you'd expect them to be. But as much as they like to say they represent 99% of the country, just make sure they're PLU (people like us). Why is that? Is not the homeless guy part of the 99%? Does he get a vote in how the "community's" money is spent? If not, then, why not?
Organizers took other steps to police the squatters, who they said were lured in from other parks with the promise of free meals. A team of 10 security volunteers moved in to the trouble-prone southwest section of Zuccotti Park in a show of force to confront them. “We’re not going to let some members of this community destroy the whole movement,” a volunteer said.
Hey! Here's a thought...why not issue a photo ID??? More than a faint whiff of hypocrisy (masked, no doubt by a myriad of other more unpleasant odors) at #Occupy Wall Street, et. al.
