As I’ve been saying, a whole host of left-wing pathologies are on display at the #occupy protests…
This is just one more thing you’ll never experience at a Tea Party.
The New York Post reports:
Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops — and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.
“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.
“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”
Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.
“The worst thing is there’s people sleeping in the kitchen when they come, and they don’t even know about it! There are some really smart and sneaky thieves here,” Terrie said.
“I had umbrellas stolen, a fold-up bed I brought because my back is bad — they took that, too!”
“The people united will never be defeated” -
“Tax the rich” -
“I’m taking your stuff!”
It should surprise no one that a materialistic movement that seeks to “redistribute wealth”, and is characterized by a pathological class envy would have this problem.
Or as Ace puts it:
Wow, it’s almost like some people don’t respect the concept of private personal property, and think — how does it go? — that property should be parceled out from each according to his ability to each according to his need.
Hat tip: Rush, who started his show off, today talking about this.
