    Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., embarked on a 24-hour hunger strike in solidarity with four Occupy DC protesters who have gone without food since Dec. 8 to advocate for D.C. voting rights.

    Ellison, the first Muslim to serve in the House, met with the hunger strikers Thursday and pledged to read their declaration which calls for full voting rights for District residents as well as legislative and budget autonomy on the floor of the House of Representatives to enter it into the congressional record.

    which calls for full voting rights for District residents
    Meaning that everyone who will no doubt vote Democrat like illegal aliens & convicts.

    All it would take to end these hunger strikes is to simply not care. So what if they want to starve themselves. Take the food and feed the hungry.

    People shouldn't be so hasty to judge this 24-hour hunger strike.


    After all, how do we know it's not 24 business hours? He could be hungry for quite some time....
