According to the Washington Post in a link sent to us by Old Trooper, there’s been an infestation of rodents – how they can tell, I don’t know;
Akhter said in an interview Monday that city health inspectors have seen rats running openly through both camps and spotted numerous new burrows and nests underneath hay-stuffed pallets occupiers are using for beds. Both campsites had working kitchens for weeks until last week, but protesters at McPherson Square voluntarily closed down theirs after health inspectors pointed out unsanitary conditions during an informal monitoring visit.
I’m sure the rats are part of the 1% and trying to mak the protesters look bad…er…worse.
“I’m very supportive of their rights and ability to demonstrate but I have concerns about their personal safety,” Akhter said.
Isn’t that just like the nanny government to be more concerned about the filthy hippies and their new furry scavenging membership than they are about the Occupy filth’s rights to live in the squalor that they’ve created as an expression of their liberty?
What’s more important here, public health and safety or the hippies right to continue being pests without a point. I mean the whole point of the Occupy movement is to make us feel sorry for them, a rodent infestation just better serves that goal, right?
