OWS celebrates Sandy aftermath: ‘No subways. No electricity. No chains.’

At least 35 people are dead. Family homes have been destroyed and condemned. Hospitals and neighborhoods have been evacuated. And millions remain stranded without power in the brutal wake of Hurricane Sandy. The crisis is far from over.

So how does the official Twitter account of Occupy Wall Street respond to the devastation? Despicably, natch.

Occupiers are celebrating the glory of a city “unchained” from the capitalist oppression of  transportation and electricity.

That community you’re experiencing, in the face of crisis? It’s always there. Think about what it is that usually obscures it. #sandy #nyc

Go outside. Meet your neighbors. Talk. Share a meal. When capitalism retreats, our communities flourish. #sandy #nyc

As capitalism halts, we experience “an exceptional period of mutual support and common care.” ow.ly/eSX4t #sandy #nyc @strikedebt

Revolting, but pretty much expected from a movement with so little self-awareness that it rails against capitalism and celebrates the loss of electricity via Twitter.

@occupywallst Which kind of electricity had you use to send this message? 🙂 /cc @lesherbes
