There’s nothing worse than when you’re trying to hold a protest decrying inequality and promoting the distribution of wealth and some dirty poor people ruin it by trying to claim a share of what you have:
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.
They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.
To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours yesterday in order to meet with organizers to air their grievances, sources said.
Someone should tell the “professional homeless” about the people who are really suffering during this economy. You think it’s easy trying to pay off $100,000 in student loans when all you have is a degree in Sustainability Studies? If the protestors didn’t have the spaghetti bolognese to eat they might be forced to go to McDonalds or something. Is that what you want, poor people? Do you want to make the Occupy Wall Street protestors eat Big Macs?
Sometimes you homeless people can be so insensitive.
