Occupy Black Friday: So far a failure – Judson Phillips – Tea Party Nation

Occupy Black Friday: So far a failure – Judson Phillips – Tea Party Nation.

So far the Occupy Black Friday operation has proved to be a failure.

But even so, we should remember what they were doing and why.

From CNBC:

Some demonstrators are planning to occupy retailers on Black Friday to protest “the business that are in the pockets of Wall Street.”

Organizers are encouraging consumers to either occupy or boycott retailers that are publicly traded, according to the Stop Black Friday website.

The goal of the movement is to impact the profits of major corporations this holiday season.

“The idea is simple, hit the corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their profits, ” states the Occupy Black Friday Facebook page.

A few of the retailers the protesters plan on targeting include Neiman Marcus, Amazon and Wal-Mart.

Their website states the following:

“Keep in mind that we are not occupying small businesses or hardworking people—we must make a distinction between the businesses that are in the pockets of Wall Street and the businesses that serve our local communities.

We are NOT anti-capitalist. Just anti-crapitalist.

 Actually, they are anti-capitalist.  They are against the free market economy and want to destroy not only the free market but they want to destroy freedom and liberty.

Of course, their great idea has pretty much turned out to be a bust.

From Fox News:

Stores across the U.S. seem to be occupied only by shoppers this Black Friday despite a call for protestors to disrupt the busiest shopping day of the year.

The Occupy Wall Street movement announced last week their plan to “Occupy Black Friday” at stores across the country but as of mid-morning shopping was not hindered by the anti-greed movement.

There were no major reports of Occupiers taking over malls and stores across the U.S. except for a group in front of Macy’s in New York City’s Herald Square where a larger rally is expected later Friday Afternoon.

So the Occupy Black Friday is a bust.  Don’t expect to hear a lot about that from the drive by media.  The failure of Occupy Black Friday will be quickly forgotten as the drive by media falls all over itself to make the Occupy movement look good.
