OWS 99% Resent Feeding the Homeless

They say they’re the 99% protesting against the greed of the 1% filthy rich. So it’s strange, to say the least, that the 99% have no compassion for the people at the rock bottom of American society — the Zero Percenters with no income, no assets, not even a home.

Selim Algar and Bob Fredericks report for the New York Post, Oct. 27, 2011, that the Occupiers are getting resentful about feeding “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.

OWS volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for the moochers who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.

In protest, for three days beginning yesterday (Oct. 28), 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.

To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours on Wednesday in order to meet with OWS’s “General Assembly” to air their grievances.

“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer. A security volunteer added that the cooks felt “overworked and underappreciated.”

Protesters got their first taste of the revolt within the revolt on Wednesday 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.

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. Some arguments broke out as the security team searched tents — but no violence erupted.

Overall security at the park had deteriorated to the point where many frightened female protesters had abandoned the increasingly out-of-control occupation, security- team members said.

Rumors swirled that one homeless man had pulled a knife in a dispute the night before — and that there had been yet another case of groping.

But the fight isn’t just between the Occupiers and the moochers. Melanie Eversley reports for USA Today, Oct. 28, 2011, that fights are breaking out among the Occupiers, “so much so that one corner of Zuccotti Park has emerged where protesters say they won’t go for fear of their safety.” Police officers have been warned of “dangerous instruments’ being concealed in cardboard tubing.”

Sadly, it looks like Zucotti Park is no Woodstock 2011.

  2. Oh, how compassionate of them….not. Turns out they are greedy bas*ards after all.

    Just wish this madness would go away. Hopefully the snow will send them home.

  3. G,

    That may be your point, but that’s not why the OWS cooks are refusing to feed the homeless. Read the article.
    Nor would your legal reason account for why the cooks are “punishing” the Occupiers by feeding them brown rice and peanut-butter sandwiches for 3 days.
    Their resentment is rooted in a “The food’s mine” mentality — the same mentality about which they’re protesting against the 1%.

  4. Nice point in your expose. If I was out there, I would be wanting as many people to stand with me. Power in numbers. I guess they do not understand that yet. I wonder how they are doing up there with all of the snow.

  5. the point is being missed . the hardest thing to endure when helping the homeless is to not judge them . some of them are just not worth helping . i live with a person . my brother who when we sell the house is likely going to end up on the street . he just refuses to make any effort to work or better his situation in life . zero effort . i have to wrestle with myself over this because i have had confrontations with him about how his attitude has effects on others around him . i work 12 hour days and come home to see this quitter sitting on porch smoking butts and drinking beer . his attitude is what creates the resentment towards the homeless because some do deserve their lot and its frustrating when they disrespect those that are struggling but still make an effort to survive , be of value to the community . . make an effort is all that we ask .

  6. P-on one hand you say it not for anyone to judge them thaen on the other hand you do exactly that “judge”. If your brother does not want to do anything to help himself,than “why” are you enableing him to mooch off of “you”.
    When you are gone then what, are You going to blame him or “you” for his
    inability to cope with the world?
    The thing is this OWS are self serving, hateful,and judgemental bunch that BLAME the rich because they don’t have a job. Would they work even if they had the, oppertunity, I don’t know, but then neither do you. They protest everything and everybody, go figure.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA

  7. There is no such premise or conclusion as a “person not worth helping.” But the point of the article is that OWS does not want to share what is their food, negating their alleged purpose of existence, as they want everyone else to share the wealth. They must practice what they “allegedly” preach. In the Gospel reading today at Mass, Jesus told the people that the Pharisees were not practicing what they preached and not to follow their example. Pope Leo the XIII said that he wanted to be known as the “servant of the servants of the Lord.” That includes serving the homeless and those who are really having a bad time, however Jesus allows people to enter your life. They may be the poor not in wealth, but poor insofar as being lonely and forgotten, and so on, and so forth. Remember what Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “Look for Jesus in disguise.”

    Thank you once again, Dr. Eowyn, for exposing the hypocrisy!
