“I’m Not Gonna Be a Hypocrite and Go To a Fancy-Shmancy 1 Percent Hotel With a Nice, Warm, Comfortable Bed”

The bedraggled remnants of the Occupy Wall Street movement aren’t too happy to see some of the buddies are hunkering down in luxury hotels while they’re left to waste away on the streets of Manhattan.

Pass the popcorn, please.

Hard-core Occupy Wall Street demonstrators yesterday tore into two high-living protest big shots — after The Post revealed that they’d been bedding down in a luxury hotel instead of toughing it out in grungy Zuccotti Park.

“I believe in the movement. I’m here. I’m not gonna be a hypocrite and go to a fancy-shmancy 1 percent hotel with a nice, warm, comfortable bed and Egyptian-cotton sheets,” said a man who identified himself only as “Hy-Dro, the people’s hero.’’

“Why are you here? What’s your purpose here?” Hydro asked, referring to organizer Peter Dutro and financial analyst Brad Spitzer, who sacked out last week at the $700-a-night W Hotel Downtown — two blocks and a world away from the squalid encampment.

“You wanna make a difference? Lead by example,” Hy-Dro fumed. “Instead of paying for a room for yourself, give someone who has nothing the opportunity to be in a fancy hotel.”
Oh yeah, I’m sure some five-star hotel would be thrilled to see some scabies-infested lowlife showing up to occupy the opulent digs.
