Occupy Wall Street: Joke Becomes Real


I didn’t create that. I was tweeting something I read in a Comment somewhere. The writer was being facetious and I found it funny too.

Apparently the gorms of Occupy Wall Street think disrupting Black Friday is the next thing to do:

Demonstrators Plan to Occupy Retailers on Black Friday

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.

One of the stores listed is Toys R Us.

Do they think the one-percent shop there?

I’d like to see how fast they’d get trampled if they dared to blockade parents from going inside to get deals for their children’s presents.

Occupy Grow The Fuck Up.

  1. Because EVERY ONE of the clerks who work at Toys R Us and other retailers are part of the 1% and DESERVE to be hassled at their workplace.

  2. Maybe everyone should Occupy Ipod, all laptop computer manufacturers, cell phones, and tent sales. Lol! Oh, and Starbucks, of course.

    Occupy free condoms. Occupy marijuana retailers (?). Occupy bookstores and libraries. Occupy parks. Occupy college campuses. Occupy the highways and bi-ways. Occupy concert ticket places.

    Occupy the earth! Release hairspray into the atmosphere! Send up balloons- plasticize the air we breath-go pee in the ocean! Go hunting! Stock up on red meat!

    Occupy their minds!

    Everyone, quick…to the restrooms and lock the doors!

    These people are like The Westboro group!

  3. That doesn’t sound good. Either these people really are gorms, or they have a different agenda to which the 1-99% division doesn’t really apply.

    • From everything I can gather, Palestine somehow figures into the real agenda.

      • mikecane

        Evolution of a failed revolution:

        1) Adbusters publishes Occupy Wall Street ad, with a goal of a Presidential Commission to get money out of politics

        2) A group calling themselves the New York General Assembly glom onto it

        3) Under the guise of “the 99%,” it turns it all into a extended whine against *all* oppression, little of which has anything to do with the financial problems it purports to protest

        4) People are suckered in

        5) I am quickly not fooled

  4. I am curious as to why they’ve appointed (or is that anointed) secret “zombie” shoppers to spy on consumers and make the decision for them whether or not their purchases are necessities or constitute conspicuous consumption, I’d assume. Obviously they won’t be unless they are in the grocery store or at the doctors office. Do we need their permission to go there, too?

    They need to be reminded that making people crazy only makes them want to run down to the sporting goods store (not Dick’s Sporting Goods because they are on their list, too) and load up on things that go woosh and boom!

    They may need to have those members that provide free medical services amongst their troops.
