Oh the irony

The dirty, smelly hippies have stuffed the homeless lifestyle of homeless people. Here was me thinking that Occupy was for the 99%:

Meanwhile, several homeless people have taken issue with the Occupy protesters, for ruining what they say is their home.

Several spoken to by Radio New Zealand say they can’t stay in any of the parks around the city now.

Mount Roskill resident J. D. Simon says he has taken in 13 homeless people, many of whom are now camping on his lawn.

    I’ll bet Mr Simon’s neighbours are “thrilled”. 
    Given that he’s in Mt Roskill (Goof’s electorate), I reckon Goof should show “solidarity” and take these people in on his farm out at Waiuku (or wherever the heck it is).

    • Yeah Penny; go and occupy Phil’s place!

      In all likelihood J D Simon enjoys the benefits of living in a state house.

    Does J D have resource consent? If not, What is Len going to do about this?

      News said he was only having them there for a week or two before he moved them on. Sounded like he was just trying to be a good samaritan.

        No good deed goes unpunished, as JD shall discover.

      I wouldn’t worry. It will come to an end when they start stealing from him.

    I wonder if they’ve ever heard of the term “food chain.”. Or for that matter “law of the jungle.”

    They wouldn’t realise it, but they’ve demonstrated beautifully how those with power (the 99%) get to stomp on those without it (the homeless). Some people call it capitalism.

    To make it sweeter, they are even expecting the lower group to be grateful. Wonderous.

      Given many anarchists believe mental disorders (though they would no doubt reject that term) are caused by capitalist society, they probably do really think that they’re helping.

    As a central city resident, I shared a ciggy with “kiri” today,as I often do, one of our homeless people. They are all pissed off, all their usual safe places are now covered with security guards.
    I have noticed an increase in trolling on this, and other sites, probably from the hippies that are now back in their flats in mt eden etc.
    The people they supposedly represent are now going to be substantially worse off, and less safe,  because of their misguided and ignorant actions.

    Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a 1% backlash over this, where the bottom 1% “encourage” the idiots to move along by re-appropriating their assets to those who need them more. I mean, who needs a tent more? Some pinko quasi-communist with a warm bed 10 minutes away, or someone who has the clothes on their back and not much more.

    Reminds me of the phrase “Charity starts at home”
