Skip to comments.Heckler Ridicules Black Friday Shoppers
Posted on 11/23/2012 2:14:55 PM PST by lowbridge
A heckler openly mocked shoppers at an Oceanside, California Best Buy as they waited for Black Friday deals. The man can be heard shouting 'you zombies are the reason Thanksgiving and the holidays are being destroyed' and other anti-Black Friday comments as shoppers filed in the store.

Zombies? Zombies buy electronics?
The link took me to a video about Egypt’s president.
See if this works....pretty funny.
Id never harass black Friday shoppers. I also dont participate in the Christmas shopping madness, I dislike the crowds and traffic.
A couple years ago I resolved to keep it simple, I give my grandkids crisp $100 bills for Christmas. Its easier and they have fun buying what they want.
Nor would I.....Until this year, I've itilized the internet to do all my shopping in the comfort of my home. Using the catalogs that I'm sent, I can take my time and browse thru them to find unique items that I could never find in stores if I was walking around looking for stuff and have them delivered to my door.........
It does amaze me how people will line up to buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have; and isn’t it interesting how “Black Friday”, a term formerly used by retailers to describe their most profitable day of the year, has found its way into the popular lexicon as a time to go out and use their credit cards.
Mark Dice simply proved himself the biggest idiot of all.
I have never understood why a people would allow themselves to be regularly herded into these stores like milk-cows, to be milked by Farmer John. Being the dumb animals that they are, at least cows have an excuse. The people that are willing to degrade themselves in such a manner for the opportunity to purchase junk, are IMHO borderline in-breds.
Keep on buying - suckers!!
I use well worn 100 dollar bills. Lessens the chances of doubles.
I don’t care if they are zombies. As long as they’re paying cash and it’s not counterfeit.
We set up a Cafe Press store, took photos and had them made in to jigsaw puzzles then have them sent directly to the relatives etc. Coffee mugs and other such personalized items are good too.
When I realized the sales were for items I didn’t need,I didn’t go!
ONE time got up really early and went with a friend for the computer special only to find a long line already there 90 minutes before opening.Said line well exceed the quota of special priced computers.Said to myself:”never again”.
Now if I was in the market for new major appliances then getting 30% at Sears or Big Box Stores,Inc. would be worth the hassle.
Who cares? People like to shop. It's fun for a lot of people and they like to make a day of it and search for deals. Some folks like the crowds, energy and excitement. Big deal. What is the point of all this criticism and condescension?
Personally I do all the my shopping online since I hate going to the stores and waiting in lines, but I see no reason to criticize others who feel differently about it.
He should go to my favorite gun store and accuse them of being Thanksgiving-ruining zombies! ;-)
I was supposed to pick up a gun today at that store, so I calls ahead to make sure it was open and the sales guy tells me, “It’s an absolute zoo in here today!”
That did it. I’m waiting until Monday! No gun is worth standing in line for hours with a bunch of well-armed gentlemen who are quite possibly zombies.
Anyway, when I made my purchase (10 days ago) they were jammed with customers then, too, including one long-bearded Afghan dude standing there in his full traditional Afghan get up. I suppose he’s eligible to pick up his gun today too, just like I am.
Anyhoo, this heckler guy, if he has any balls, should go down there and scream at all those slightly irritable undead, including one who is quite possibly a crazed Taliban living dead dude, and accuse them of being zombies. As if that were a bad thing. Yeah, I’d like to see that. I don’t know of anything that’d make a bunch of zombies angrier. But, noooo... He goes to Best Buy. Ha! What’s next? Starbucks? Maybe the UC Berkeley bookstore? None of the zombies milling around those places could even scare a little girl. Way to go, heckler dude. Sissy.
That works for those who can order stuff online. I used to have most of my wish list online at Amazon.com or similar sites, and it was great for my family. Then, I got married. My wife’s folks only want stuff they can get in the store. It’s absurd.
If you're refering to gifts then don't tell them where they came from. You receive them, you wrap them, you give them. End of story......
If you're refering to the gifts your wife's parents purchase for others then that's their problem. Let them fight the traffic and mall lines.........
Gift giving for the holiday shouldn't be a hassle and the internet makes it headache free...I'll never shop any other way.
As a side note, the internet provides me with access to products I'm searching for that could never be found if shopping locally.......
I know Mark Dice. He’s been to a lot of tea party/conservative rallies. This is nothing. Subscribe to/checkout his videos on youtube.com and see what he did with the Occupy crowd. They just hated his guts. This guy is the real deal.
Private citizens spending their money where they choose. The heckler has no idea if shoppers are in debt, using credit cards, layaway, etc
The truth hurts...
No, he sure doesn’t. I’m not impressed by someone who spends their time watching other people go shopping much less some nut who stands there yelling insults at them.
Better for you. That's your business. People can spend their resources however they like. I know very successful people who have plenty saved who just love shopping on Black Friday. It's just something they enjoy. Feeding the machine? You sound like a liberal anti-capitalist when you babble stuff like that. You can get plenty of commentary like that on InfoWars.
I stay away from large stores/malls/etc. Most of the gifts I buy come from specialty stores, small local businesses, antique/craft stores. No crowds to fight, no driving in heavy traffic. I do love our small town living. Ya’ll can have the cities.
Hey Jackass, I never said that people don't have the right to spend their resources the way they see fit. I merely suggested that their are more important things then self-amusement and entertainment when the country is headed in the wrong direction. InfoWars? Never been there. Calling me names and making excuses for these shopping clowns only proves to me that you haven't a clue as to what ails this country. Keep on shopping and let others be concerned with the heavy matters. What a buffoon.
If I have to put new bills in my wallet I separate and crumble them first.
Shopping is not what ails the country. And again, calling people who like to go shopping on Black Friday "clowns". Why? Who are you to judge someone because they like the crowds and energy of Black Friday. Plenty of conservatives view it as a day to get good deals. Black Friday isn't some liberal thing with mindless sheeple turning out at the malls, people from across the political spectrum participate.
Look chief, if you think Black Friday is what is ailing this country you don't have a clue. Heck, we'd be better off with MORE pure capitalist, heavy shopping days like Black Friday.
Why? Are you implying that patrons of a gun store are violent, impulse-ridden a--holes? Really? You approve of that?
No one ever said you can't find mindless sheeple across the whole political spectrum.
Speaking for myself, I have had the perfect Thanksgiving weekend so far. Days of raking leaves, watching a little football, walking the dog out in the woods where the shadows are long even at high noon due to the rapidly approaching winter solstice. Tomorrow I'll pile up a little firewood and hang some Christmas lights in the yard and just after sunset, I'll jump in the car and cruise around my neighborhood, checking out everybody else's Christmas displays with a mug of hot coffee (perhaps spiked with a little Kahlua) and Christmas music playing on the car stereo.
Haven't seen the inside of a store since about Halloween, unless you count the Dunkin Donuts or the liquor store.
When it comes time for me to purchase some Christmas gifts, I like the idea of what the other guy had with the crisp $100 bills. But most likely, I'll do a few mouse clicks over at Amazon.com and have the gifts arrive at my home by way of the big brown UPS truck. I'll be sure to get a few things for myself as well.
