If The People Don’t Have Bread Let Them Eat Organic Chicken!

There is a revolt under way at the Occupy Wall Street protests. No, the radical leftist revolutionaries haven’t started an actual revolt yet. But their kitchen staff has. Yes, OWS does in fact have a kitchen staff, something one would have thought would be reserved for the 1%, not the 99%. The poor kitchen staff is apparently stuck working 18 hours a day and they feel underappreciated. They’re also tired of feeding the “professional homeless” and “ex-cons masquerading as protesters.” No, I am not making this up.
The revolt began Wednesday when the kitchen staff only served, gasp, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at a staff meeting. Yesterday the revolt escalated as only sandwiches and chips were served. It will continue today when only brown rice and other “spartan” grub is served. One would have thought this would be what the kitchen staff served in the first place. In fact they normally serve organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese and roasted beet and sheep’s milk cheese salad. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.
The irony of all of this is incredible. These leftists claim to be protesting for the lower class and the middle class yet they look down on the “professional homeless” who presumably they’re protesting for. They don’t want to give up their food for the homeless or ex-cons, they want to selfishly keep it. Isn’t this what they accuse bankers and billionaires of doing? Beyond that, the protesters themselves are treating the kitchen staff just as poorly as they accuse big business of treating employees. These people are hypocrites in the extreme.
The menu is mind boggling. Who knew that protesters needed more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? The menu is something I would expect to find on the dinner table of someone in the 1%. Organic chicken and vegetables, who can afford organic chicken? Bolognese isn’t exactly cheap, have you seen the price of beef these days? Roasted beet and sheep milk cheese salad sounds like a dish on at a high end restaurant that caters to rich middle aged women after they have a spa morning.
The OWS crowd is overrun with hypocrisy and inconsistency. Their kitchen menu exposes any number of things about them. First, they’re very clearly being funded by someone with deep pockets. (read: George Soros) None of what they’re serving on a regular basis is cheap. Someone is paying for it, in fact someone had to be prepared to pay for it up front. The cost of the food they’re using proves, yet again, that OWS is a planned endeavor and not an organic, grass roots uprising.
Second, that these kids are demanding high end food and the kitchen staff believes that they’ll be showing them up by serving sandwiches and brown rice says something about the crowd. If you’re really lower class, such as the “professional homeless” the kitchen staff complains about, you’ll take what you’re given and be grateful for it. That the kitchen staff expects to sticking it to someone by serving sandwiches means that those kids are demanding high end food. It shows us that they aren’t coming from the lower class themselves but are likely coming from the upper middle and upper classes. Which means the protesters are largely a bunch of dumb kids and frauds.
The irony of all of this is rich though. The OWS protesters and leaders are treating their kitchen staff worse than the billionaires they hate so much. The kitchen staff and OWS leaders don’t want to have to give their loot over to the “professional homeless” and “ex-cons” that want it. Isn’t that what they demand billionaires and wicked bankers do, ie: give up their loot to those who don’t have it? The hypocrisy is priceless.
