SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Most Americans spent Thanksgiving snug inside homes with families and football. Others used the holiday to give thanks alongside strangers at outdoor Occupy encampments, serving turkey or donating their time in solidarity with the anti-Wall Street movement that has gripped a nation consumed by economic despair.

In San Francisco, 400 occupiers at a plaza in the financial district were served traditional Thanksgiving fixings sent by the renowned Glide Memorial Church to volunteers and supporters of the movement fighting social and economic inequality.

"We are thankful that we are, first and foremost, in a country where we can protest," said the Rev. Cecil Williams, the founder of Glide and a fixture in the city's activist community. "And we are thankful that we believe that there are things that could be worked out and that we have a sense of hope. But we know that hope only comes when you make a stand."

Why did they throw the switch on this? All of a sudden bloomberg remembers he's the freaking mayor? Or was it just a little dry run?

I already know.

I will admit, communists do put on a good show for the pinheads in the “media” when it comes to “solidarity”.

Wow - I didn’t think this collection of freaks and weirdos would celebrate a holiday of extermination and genocide.

Wonder if they just set this up for the cameras....

If this is the big movement Obama thought would help him complete his socialist reformation of USA then it is pretty pathetic.

They celebrated a holiday which is a celebration of private property and free enterprise capitalism and the rejection of collectivism. What a bunch of hypocrites!

You’ll note that NONE of these mainstream media articles on the Occutards mentions the Occutard deaths, rapes, batteries, thefts, arrests, lice, TB, the filth, yada, yada??

It just doesn’t fit the pre-approved Democrat narrative...

That's the liberal version of "and they all lived happily ever after", isn't it? LOL

I think it would be funny to tell the real story of Thanksgiving to these Leftists as they are chowing down. Be sure to get video of their reaction when they are told the truth.

People should respect the beliefs of the occupiers. They should refrain from donating anything to the OWS movement that is a product of capitalist effort.

“Too much” indoctrination- not education.

I remember the Glide church will the Clintons went. It’s one of those churches that you really have to search to find the name of Jesus Christ mentioned.

Worshipping the creation rather than the Creator.

I have to amend that first statement. No matter how you look, you CAN’T find the name of Jesus. Glide has nothing to do with a church, other than they call themselves that for tax purposes. They are just a bunch of feelgood libs getting together to “do good”. Not a place of worship at all, unless they are worshipping themselves.

Yup. And they are supposed to be “the future”. I think America is in big trouble.

The progressive movement goes back to sad ass Teddy Roosevelt.Yes,he was born wealthy as hell, and; he was ashamed his father never fought in the war. He was the jerk who started the social medicine idea. History forgets that land made money and was the only thing taxed, and; every darn one of these progressive bums then had a chance to hitch their wagon up for a homestead/LAND. Lazy then as is now.
