What a bunch of selfish hypocrites.
Here they are wanting a piece of the "rich guy's pie" and they won't even share with people who have less than themselves.
So they want the 1% to give more in taxes to the State - "to spread the wealth" - and yet when the homeless come to their Occupy Wall Street tents looking for a meal they get all mad. They even call them freeloaders!
The hypocrisy and irony here is priceless.
So now the movement is deciding to cut back on their "fancy meals". No more organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beets and sheep's-milk-cheese salad - which is not bad for people that work hard at protesting those nasty rich people. Because they don't want to share their extravagant menu items, they will apparently now be substituting that for more plain stuff like peanut butter sandwiches. Afterall, can't be giving the good stuff to freeloading vagrants!
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.I find it hilarious that "the cooks felt overworked and under-appreciated" - How incredibly ironic! That is how most American Taxpayers feel regarding the freeloaders that suck off the system and demand more in social entitlement programs and government "freebies"!
A security volunteer added that the cooks felt “overworked and under-appreciated".
... Today, a limited menu of sandwiches, chips and some hot food will be doled out -- so legitimate protesters will have a day to make arrangements for more upscale weekend meals.
Protesters got their first taste of the revolt within the revolt yesterday when the kitchen staff served only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips after their staff meeting.
Organizers took other steps to police the squatters, who they said were lured in from other parks with the promise of free meals. ...
“We’re not going to let some members of this community destroy the whole movement,” a volunteer said.
And here is another lesson to be learned by these people: Since their free meals are attracting "non-protesters" who are essentially sucking off the food for the "real protesters" how long will it take for the OWS crowd to put a fence around their parks and tents and require ID's for those seeking food??? You know - to tell the "real protesters" from the "fake" ones. Kind of like the illegal aliens sucking off our social services. Eh?
While they protest against the disparity of the haves versus the have-nots.. perhaps they ought to look closer into their mirrors and see that they are not much different than the 1%. They won't share their organic chicken and sheep's-milk-cheese salad with those who have less than they do.
It looks to me that the protesters portrayed in this article are just as corrupt and greedy as the folks they are protesting against.
No surprise there.
