New York Times: Where FEMA Fell Short, Occupy Sandy Was There

November 19, 2012

If this doesn’t make you want to barf, there’s something wrong with you.

In an effort to put a pretty makeover on their rape/murder/crime image, members of the Occupy movement are down at ground zero of Hurricane Sandy. The New York Times couldn’t be happier….

Maligned for months for its purported ineffectiveness, Occupy Wall Street has managed through its storm-related efforts not only to renew the impromptu passions of Zuccotti, but also to tap into an unfulfilled desire among the residents of the city to assist in the recovery. This altruistic urge was initially unmet by larger, more established charity groups, which seemed slow to deliver aid and turned away potential volunteers in droves during the early days of the disaster.

Kinda reminds me of September 11, 2001 when the Church of Scientology did the same thing.

For the record, I didn’t say that…. Anonymous did.

I’m all for volunteering to help people. What I can’t stand is when a maligned group uses a national tragedy to rehab their image and that’s exactly what this is.

    I concur. Just like people using thanksgiving and Christmas to promote luxury Items, while I will try my hardest to have a happy one of each. While millions are living in squalor. Makes me sad indeed.
