Person Trampled As Fight Breaks Out At Greek Free Food Handout

In yet another day marked by simply unbearable propaganda, about an hour ago an EU official pulled a Lanny Breuer and was quoted as saying that “things are going well” in Greece. Oh are they? Then perhaps the same official can explain why a clip of a scuffle breaking out at a free food handout in Greece, where one man was “trampled and injured“, and where a “Reuters photographer was hit on the head with cauliflower heads” has been the most watched item on Greek TV in the past day?

    I hope this doesn’t become a tradition at the local Greek Festival.

    Common soon to a place near you as food and medicine have been positioned to be used as weapons for the coming planned collapse of USD.

    I can explain why “things are going well”; because a “Reuters photographer was hit on the head with cauliflower heads”.

    Linked in Durden’s article, from a previous one on the escalating disaster in the Eurozone, :

    (He’s speaking specifically, but I think this could be applied universally.)
    “And the paradox is that as long as market indicators aren’t flashing red, no politician has the urge to enact the critical laws needed to fix the underlying problem, as that same fix will lead to an immediate end of said politician’s career.”

    Bingo!

    You probably have a food pantry near you, I suggest finding out the details of when they distribute and show up. Either volunteer for the day, watch from a distance or get in on the goods.

    It’s a somber experience, you’ll also see how easy things could escalate with so many desperate people in one location.

    Interestingly, the first thought that popped into my head was…

    “Even one of their own prophets has said ‘Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy glutton.’ This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply”…

    I wonder what province this photo was taken in?

    I wonder how many of those people are actually Greeks. Since Greece is the main entryway for illegals into Europe, their “migrant” problem has really gotten out of hand and made a lot of other social issues worse.

    Is the man in the back of the truck shouting, “piss off, piss off, piss off”? No wonder they got upset.

    We must ban cauliflower!

    People just plain don’t NEED cauliflower.

    Especially more than one.

    This is ALL because of entitlements and communist involvement in politics for the past 100 years. Don’t ever let anyone try to tell you communism is dead.
    Even the politicians who say they are “Conservative” are actually the same as a prog and a RINO combined.

    ^ I meant to say in Greece. Although it’s looking the same here, isn’t it.

    Seeing how quickly shelves empty, even in Big D, with the slightest bit of bad weather, I am convinced a lack of food will be the first pressure to result in an increase in violent crimes that could lead to riots or martial law.

    People will do many things they otherwise wouldn’t to put food in their kids’ mouths.

    Your pantry will be fair game to them.
