"Yale's College Republicans hold BBQ near a hunger strike"

Via InstapunditMost union-busting techniques are explicit, like legal challenges and anti-union campaigning. But when all else fails, go for the gut.

Yale University's local College Republicans chapter held a barbecue on Friday near the fasting site of campus union organizers participating in a hunger strike directed against the university. Bragging about the wafting, delicious smells on Facebook, it appears to have been a move to torment the fasting grad students, who have thus far gone days without food in a protest for their worker's rights struggle.

"It'll taste (and smell) delicious!" the event description said on Facebook.


The tactic drew comparisons to another recent barbecue halfway across the world, where an Israeli youth group held a barbecue outside a prison in which Palestinians were engaging in a hunger strike.

Perfect! They should have roasted a whole pig, but just cooking meat is great. You know a lot of the semi-hunger strikers are tofu eaters.

Glad to know there are a few Yale students left who would make WFB smile.

This is the strike wherein the strikers are allowed to eat? Watch one show up at the BBQ.

Yalies need to learn how to hold a plate in such a manner that one's barbecue does not slide off.

Sixty, I think the goal was trying to show what was on the plate to the camera, but is almost like a spill caught just before it happened.

Sure, all I am sayin' is her cheese done already slid offen her cracker, so why would her plate be any different?
