THE INTERSECTION OF THE PASTORAL AND THE PROPHETIC

Part the second:

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.

“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.

Many of those being fed “are professional homeless people. They know what they’re doing,” said the guard at the food-storage area.

For I was hungry and you said, “We’re trying to change the world here so hit the road!  There’s a soup kitchen eight blocks that way!  Hit them up for free grub, derelict!”  I was thirsty and you said, “Cry me a river!  I’ve got a doctorate in applied linguistics, I can’t find a job in my chosen field and it’s all because of Wall Street!!“  I was a stranger and you told me to keep moving because you had way more important problems to worry about than whether or not some homeless guy had a warm place to sleep.

Oh and James 2:15-16, Ms. Kaeton.  Discuss.

So many layers of delicious irony, so little time… Terrific fisk, Chris.

PS–roasted beet and sheep’s milk cheese salad??? Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes! Gonna go mix up some dark chocolate cookies now. (BC dark choc. brownie mix spiked w/ about 1/3 c.Special Dark cocoa and a little salt; add only enough of the water to bring it to drop-cookie texture & drop/bake about 10 min. on greased pan at 375. That is the only recipe talk you will ever get from me. But I think you will thank me, as these suckers come off the pan BLACK, and create feeding frenzies in squad room coffee corners etc!)

Some of those people are free-loaders? You could knock me over with a feather!

[...] Hattip to Christopher Johnson at Midwest Conservative Journal.  I know that this will come as a vast surprise, but apparently there are grifters and con artists among the Occupy Wall Street minions: [...]

A T-bone fender bender. Call the thought police to clean up the mess.

And so it goes, as Kurt Vonnegut used to say.

Man, it’s awful when the realities of society hit you in the face!
Sybil: Take your yummy mixture, spread it in a 13X9 pan, sprinkle over a whole bag of toffee bits. Easier than dropping cookies.

Nothing about your Cards? Or are you still trying to process what happened last night?

Unbelievable.

Geosez–
Toffee bits would be an awesome addition…..as are black walnuts and/or dried cherries…..The reason I drop them as cookies is because they cool (and can be delivered/eaten) MUCH sooner! Also, if you love the corner pieces of brownies, it’s like a whole panfull of corners! LOL

Where did the funding for this come from? Surely the “volunteer” kitchen staff didn’t volunteer the food as well? Let’s say it’s George Soros. Why is he now being so tight fisted as to deny the masses sheep’s milk cheese salad, and forcing them to eat (*gasp*) brown rice instead? How can he be so socially unjust? What a poseur. If he or Algore had any ounce of integrity, they’d sell their McMansions and join the protests, giving all the proceeds to serve chicken cordon bleu to all who ask for it.

“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.”

And they’l be able to distinguish between the OWS’s and the criminals & freeloaders, how exactly?

The OWS people have notes from their mothers.

Additional comment by Allahpundit:

In other words, a guy with no job who’s been sleeping in the park for a month and prone to saying things like “power to the people” is entitled to feast on sheep’s-milk-cheese salad, but a guy with no job who’s been sleeping in the park for years and prone to saying things like “I’m hungry” has to make do with whatever the local soup kitchen is shoveling. Some occupiers really are more equal than others.

Sheep’s milk cheese salad. Is that the best you can do? You call yourself the 99%? Serve something more proletarian you idiots. You shouldn’t be satisfied until all of Wall Street smells like a Moscow night: Like borscht.

If these were the real “workers” they’d be serving hot dogs and beans. That wouldn’t help the smell, of course.

Just for the record, these protestors — who are supposedly so poor and beleaguered — eat way better than we do.
