The Occupy Wall Street movement has become a parody of itself now that the protest’s volunteer kitchen workers have launched a strike against preparing food for freeloaders, Sean Hannity said on his radio show today.

“Every freeloader in town has descended upon Zuccotti Park in New York, and the numbers are increasing every day,” Hannity said. “They’re complaining about sharing their food now. They’re complaining about the hours that they’re working. Sounds like they’re being taxed. Sounds like maybe a version of capitalism has emerged.”

He quoted an article in the New York Post reporting that fed-up kitchen workers decided to reduce the amount of food they will prepare during the protests — implementing the move Wednesday when they served peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and chips.

“They don’t like freeloaders,” he said. “They don’t like people taking advantage of their hard work. They don’t like the 18-hour days. They feel taken advantage of. Welcome to the world of capitalism.”

The Occupy Wall Street movement was dishonest from the beginning, and the protesters are in it for nothing more than the attention, he said.

“All of a sudden, they don’t even like their own philosophy,” he said. “It’s kind of like their own experiment is imploding right in front of them, but nobody in the media can put this all together.”
