Keep Westword Free

Reader: Snooze protesters are iPhone-using Occupy poseurs, not real homeless people

The fallout from the protest at Snooze over the now-approved urban camping ban continues to rumble through our comments section.

Here's a prime example -- a response from a reader who feels those targeting the eatery are only feigning homelessness.

Reader writes:

Don't kid yourself, John. The people slandering Snooze are not homeless, they are the worthless Occupy "protesters," blogging from their iPhones and MacBooks. The homeless are too preoccupied with trying to eat or find shelter, and could give a rat's ass about these protest poseurs who misinform the public with their uninformed rhetoric.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
