The postponement of the food-truck festival at Dewey Square on Saturday due to Occupy Boston might have meant a loss in donations for the Greater Boston Food Bank, which had been asking event goers to bring food donations with them.
Showing a newfound concern for the poor, conservative critics of Occupy Boston sprang into action, setting up a donation Web site for people to contribute money for the group. As of 8 a.m., they claim to have raised $3,400.
The occupods at first responded by noting they are already feeding the homeless people who are camping with them at the Dewey Square tent city, but are now asking visitors to bring canned goods with them this weekend for donation to the food bank - and to donate money directly to it.
Open Media Boston, meanwhile, uses the food-bank kerfuffle to launch a the next STUPID F$&KING RIGHT-WING MEME about #OccupyBoston. We seem to have the next one right here: That somebody spit on a Coast Guard member as she walked by the encampment. Not true, Occupy Boston says, noting the presence of veterans and reserve members within its ranks.
