Great News: OWS to Celebrate Organic Thanksgiving or Something

Posted by on Nov 19, 2011 at 9:49 am

I’m wondering why they would celebrate Thanksgiving? Like didn’t those evil pilgrims murder Native Americans and steal their land? Didn’t they “occupy” a pristine land and turn it into a capitalist society where the 1% ruled with an iron fist?

And for dessert, they’re serving occupy.

A renowned New York chef says he’s preparing a massive, organic Thanksgiving repast for 1,000 Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The Zuccotti Park regulars will feast on 150 turkeys, 400 pounds of potatoes, 300 pounds of stuffing and 250 pounds of cranberry sauce, chef Eric Smith said Friday.

“We have a great Thanksgiving dinner planned for all the occupiers,” Smith said as he moved forward with plans for the holiday meal.

Cider and water will be served, and the former chef at Sheridan New York said he’s looking for someone to donate 300 pies.

“We hope on Thanksgiving we can bring solace to all these people,” said Smith. “Get together. Give everyone an inspirational boost. These people need a chance to rejoice. It’s been a rough two months.”

The “very traditional” meal for 1,000 demonstrators will be held far from Wall Street — perhaps even in rural Woodstock.

    Dear Sweet God
    I thought these were kids struggling without jobs/with low paying jobs/drowning in debt. Who the hell ponied up THAT much money to put out that much food????

    More than likely Soros. DNC, unions, communist party, socialist party, our elected officials and president. Oh, can’t forget Hollywood elites.
    Still don’t understand why they are not in DC at the capitol, senate and house hanging out. They are the ones, both parties, that have allowed this to be an issue. They have benefited as much, if not more then the Wall Street /bankers crowd. One, WS, would not have benefited if the other, gov’t., had not enabled it, along with the lobbyist.
    And , We the People, got screwed… turn us against each other and make this country even weaker…
    We are in deep dodo kids!!

    The occupiers have been through a rough two months? What about the residents of the neighborhood that had to put up with that crap for 2 months? The priorities of this crowd are pathetic.

    I have an advice to my fellow countrymen. If you do not like a particular politician who is representing you, just rally as many people as possible and vote him or her out of office. And the new one who is in place, watch him or her like a hawk to make sure they represent the needs of their cttizens in full. Doesn’t matter if they are Repoops or Lenincrats, if you can watch five or six hours of TV a night, you can take an hour or less of your time, once every two or four years, to go and vote. It is your duty as our men and women in uniform conduct their duty to protect us so we CAN vote in orderly fashion. I joke with people saying that my father, mother, uncles, aunts, cousins and grandparents in the ole’country did not have to vote or found a need to. It was because they lived in a dictatorship. We don’t. Not yet. So go out and vote in EVERY election cycle. And watch them like a hawk.

    I hope all sane people NEVER, EVER give any business to any establishment that hires this “chef”…

    You’ll note that the food isn’t being given to homeless shelters or food banks….

    While I agree with you, I think that you neglected to mention the SEIU in your list.

    “You’ll note that the food isn’t being given to homeless shelters or food banks….”

    There have been many, many articles regarding how angry the Zuccotti Park OWS folk get when the homeless and poor come by to eat THEIR food while they are busy demanding that WE pay the cost of educating them.
