Soup Kitchen Watch

When was the last time you heard the phrase "soup kitchen"? Frankly, I hadn't heard that term until recently, and before then I think I might have heard it while watching an Our Gang movie.

Yet, the term has made a comeback recently. Several articles opposing HR 4437 have featured claims similar to this:

Yet that is what officials appear to be doing with a bill that would make it a felony to aid undocumented immigrants - legislation that, immigrant advocates fear, could affect soup kitchens and day shelters.

So many recently articles have used this that there can be only one explanation: they're all reading from the same script.

If you spot articles using this phrase, please leave a link in the comments.


Looks like not too many people have seen it. Kind of shoots down your argument that there's a trend, eh?

Oh, and by the way--people who use them use the term soup kitchen pretty often. I work in one. Maybe you just don't dirty your hands with poor people?
