Homeless there are Homeless in Obama's America?

There was a story a few days ago that caught me eye:

The Occupy pro­test­ers who call them­selves the 99% because they’ve been vic­tim­ized by those evil 1% cor­po­ratist banker types, are now sit­ting com­fort­ably in their warm homes as they recruit the home­less, peo­ple with­out warm homes, to keep the protests going in Indianapolis.

After a lit­tle googling I also spot­ted this from the LA weekly

Occupy L.A. might resem­ble a home­less encamp­ment out­side City Hall, but some are com­plain­ing that the real home­less are mov­ing in on the anti-​Wall Streeters in order to take advan­tage of the rel­a­tively plen­ti­ful food.

As cities around the coun­try have swept Occupy Wall Street camps from their plazas and parks in recent weeks, a num­ber of may­ors and city offi­cials have argued that by pro­vid­ing shel­ter to the home­less, the camps are endan­ger­ing the pub­lic and even the home­less themselves.

And this from Philly​.com

With the story of the occu­pa­tion chang­ing some­times by the hour, those who can leave or relo­cate may have done one or both by the time you read this. Those pos­sess­ing warm beds will even­tu­ally crawl back under the covers.

Pre­sum­ing Dil­worth Plaza’s $50 mil­lion makeover is immi­nent, what becomes of the trou­bled souls who have emerged from the shad­ows to form a com­mune in crisis?

For all the fear that anar­chists may force a show­down with police, why aren’t more peo­ple talk­ing about what hap­pens when bull­doz­ers roll up on a site inhab­ited by so many with nowhere else to go?

My reac­tion to this is: Home­less? There are HOME­LESS in Obama’s America?

None of these sto­ries have become big nation­ally, and they will not, why? Because that would involve acknowl­edg­ing a prob­lem with the home­less dur­ing the Obama years. The argu­ments that remov­ing the camps can’t be made by the Obama left because it would truly turn the Occupy Camps into Obamavilles.

Rest Assured when the GOP takes the White House and the Sen­ate in 12 months the MSM will re-​discover the Home­less and they will be blamed on the incom­ing Repub­li­can pres­i­dent and con­gress (or George Bush)

But until that time, these home­less sto­ries will remain local, inci­den­tal and unnewsworthy.

After a little googling I also spotted this from the LA weekly

Occupy L.A. might resemble a homeless encampment outside City Hall, but some are complaining that the real homeless are moving in on the anti-Wall Streeters in order to take advantage of the relatively plentiful food.

As cities around the country have swept Occupy Wall Street camps from their plazas and parks in recent weeks, a number of mayors and city officials have argued that by providing shelter to the homeless, the camps are endangering the public and even the homeless themselves.

And this from Philly.com

With the story of the occupation changing sometimes by the hour, those who can leave or relocate may have done one or both by the time you read this. Those possessing warm beds will eventually crawl back under the covers.

Presuming Dilworth Plaza’s $50 million makeover is imminent, what becomes of the troubled souls who have emerged from the shadows to form a commune in crisis?

For all the fear that anarchists may force a showdown with police, why aren’t more people talking about what happens when bulldozers roll up on a site inhabited by so many with nowhere else to go?

My reaction to this is: Homeless? There are HOMELESS in Obama’s America?

None of these stories have become big nationally, and they will not, why? Because that would involve acknowledging a problem with the homeless during the Obama years. The arguments that removing the camps can’t be made by the Obama left because it would truly turn the Occupy Camps into Obamavilles.

Rest Assured when the GOP takes the White House and the Senate in 12 months the MSM will re-discover the Homeless and they will be blamed on the incoming Republican president and congress (or George Bush)

But until that time, these homeless stories will remain local, incidental and unnewsworthy.
