Remember Orange County Young Republicans Treasurer Matthew Klein? Y’know, the one who giggles when the homeless die? Yeah, that guy.
He’s back.
Men’s Wearhouse in Oakland shut down today in solidarity with the general strike that began in Oakland today. An Oakland resident tweeted this picture:

This doesn’t sit well with conservatives. Men’s Wearhouse had already been supportive of the 99%, leading to exchanges like this:

However, Matt takes it one step further. He writes that as a member of the 53% who have money, he will take it elsewhere. Why? Because they chose to stand with the “so-called 99 percent” - the people who don’t have money. Basically, screw you for standing with the poor, I won’t shop at a place with a heart! I’m taking my DOLLAS elsewhere. HOLLA! (You just KNOW he says that…)
He’s also changed his description on his profile. Here’s the previous description from Oct 31, 2011:

And now…

SMILEY FACE! You guys at suck at life. Silly poor people!
No, Matt, actually you suck at life. Why? Well, if you’re going to flounce like a Twitter drama queen, tweet the right account:

It’s @MensWearhouse. You tweeted a spam account - but really, when’s the last time a Republican gave a damn about fact-checking?

In his bio, he claims he loves his country. Well, it’s totally patriotic to celebrate the deaths of others, amirite?! Especially because they’re all looking for a free ride, yeah? Get it? He didn’t have HANDOUTS so he DIED! HILARIOUS! </sarcasm>
For the record, the man was homeless and appears to have died from natural causes. But don’t let that stop the right-wing! They’re losing it over this story, marking the first time many conservatives have given a flying fuck about the homeless. We all know it’s not because they actually care - it’s because they can use his death to attempt to delegitimize the Occupy movement.
