Skip to comments.It is time for Real Americans to Occupy Black Friday
Posted on 11/22/2011 6:08:57 PM PST by Thad Lost
The Occupy mob has shown its true face with its call to Occupy Black Friday and boycott retailers.
The consequences of a boycott like that, if it were effective, would not hurt the rich. It would hurt the employees of the stores. Of course, the Occupy mob does not care about them. Their goal is very simple. They want to crash the economy. The more people they can force out of work, they believe the greater will be the demand for revolution.
We have to answer them.
Our answer is simple.
We will Occupy Black Friday for America and Real Americans.
Black Friday has its name because that is the date, traditionally, that most retail stores go from a net loss for the year to a net profit. Those profits go to pay the wages and salaries of our neighbors and friends. We must stand with them.
This Friday, go out for Black Friday and do some of your Christmas shopping. For many, the idea of shopping on Black Friday violates your 8th Amendment rights against cruel and unusual punishments.
I am with you on that.
I hate crowds.
But this Friday I am going to go out and support some of my local merchants. I am going to out and specifically try to shop as some of the chains the Occupy mob has targeted.
We need to fight back against the Occupy mob and make their Occupy Black Friday a complete failure.
Remember the motive of the mob. They do not want to protest the rich. They want to destroy the free market economy and replace it with a socialist model. All socialism has ever created is misery and poverty, while the free market has created the greatest amount of wealth for the greatest number of people in history.
The Occupy mob is not made of Real Americans. These are people who hate America and hate everything America stands for. They want to bring America down. We in the Tea Party movement love America and want to see America and our fellow Americans lifted up and made great.
We cannot stand by and let this attack on the American system go unanswered. On Friday, no matter how much you hate crowds, make it a point to go out and buy at least some of your Christmas presents.
Help save the jobs of your neighbors. These are the jobs that the Occupy mob wants to kill.
Nope. Staying home.
Actually, smart Americans aren’t blowing money as fast as they can these days. There’s nothing patriotic about debt.
I NEVER shop on black Friday anyway.
Where I live, this Saturday is small business’ shopping day. I do at least 75% of my shopping with local merchants.
Personally I think a crappy economy has the silver lining of rolling the clock back to a more traditional Christmas.
Actually, I normally stay in for Black Friday. However, my girls would get the biggest kick out of seeing Occupiers at Walmart. I plan on driving by to see if they are there.
Anyone know where I can get liquid skunk scent? I already have the water balloons.

Most of what OWS does hurts the average American. Now they want to default on student loans. All that’s going to do is make the “Evil Corporations” say, “Well screw it, I’m not loaning money to the poor anymore for college if they aren’t going to pay it back.” Nothing like climbing the ladder and then kicking it away so no one else can climb up after them.
I will not spend a dime from tomorrow until about January 10th of next year.
Same, I shop online for pretty much everything.
Now if the plan is to go out and do some battle with the occutards I'd get off the couch and join in.
Someone please tell me this Is a parody post???
Wow! Maybe you have missed the recent economic collapse. Who in their right mind would go out and spend money just to be anti-OWS... surely you jest!
I’m sure that you probably meant this with good intentions, but you really need to remember that almost of all America is suffering during this downturn. That means that almost everybody is going to stay home.
The few that do go out and have excess money to spend - well, they will have to hold up the economy.
Every year, someone gets trampled to death. Maybe it will be the OWS this year.
I went out on “Black Friday” once about 7 or 8 years ago. Now, I just watch the idiots trample each other on TV. Of course, this year, I’ve decided to work on Friday instead.
Where I live, this Saturday is small business shopping day. I do at least 75% of my shopping with local merchants.
That’s a great idea in your community. Our town had an ‘open house’ a few days ago for the local stores. My instrumental group provided some of the music for entertainment while peeps shopped.
Really, really bad idea for me. I just can’t force myself. Plus, the Iron Bowl is being played in this town and it will be really crazy.
“Im sure that you probably meant this with good intentions, but you really need to remember that almost of all America is suffering during this downturn. That means that almost everybody is going to stay home.”
I was once engaged to a girl who thought it was a virtue to buy something she “needed” as soon as she “needed” it.
When she ran out of real money, she’d start in on the credit cards. And, the economy wasn’t even bad at the time.
By the time we were no longer engaged, she’d single-handedly run up about $15,000 worth of debt, in just over a year and a half.
I think lots of people won’t let their kids miss “Christmas”, debt be damned.
Maybe if we’re lucky they’ll get trampled at Wal Mart...
Ah yes... Women are different! (Sorry, but that is true when it comes to spending)... As long as they feel some comfort with their status (married or comfortable single), they will spend. Not so for men. So yes, it may be a merry Black Friday for women but not so for men. I would guess the the end result will be a wash. No increase but no falter in sales results. That alone would be good for the current economy.
Wow, TeaPartyNation is a “social networking site.” That leaves me out.
