'Occupy'-Inspired Campaign Urges Boycott of Black Friday

Occupy Wall Street-inspired protesters are eyeing a new target -- Target. And dozens of other companies.

A campaign under the name "Occupy Black Friday" is trying to enlist supporters to boycott just about every major retailer, and quite a few mid-sized ones, the day after Thanksgiving. The protesters are casting a wide net, urging people to demonstrate against the top retail stores -- a list that includes everything from Wal-Mart to Target to Dick's Sporting Goods to Dollar Tree.

"The idea is simple, hit the corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their profits," the group's Facebook page reads, describing Black Friday as the "one day where the mega-corporations blatantly dictate our actions."

But retailers, who are monitoring the mini-movement, warn that a blanket boycott could end up hurting local communities.


It's pretty easy to see that most of these occupy thugs are full of hate and rage. They have failed in life and want to blame it on someone or something else: Namely big banks and corporations.

In America you function and succeed by getting an education, a job and so on. You don't live with your mom like many of these occupy kids do. Your suppose to get out and live on your own. To function as an adult. Stop complaining that your not rich and work for something. The people who are rich have earned what they have. They didn't beg and cry for it to be handed to them like this group of idiots are.

I got news for the occupy black Friday guys. People are going to shop and the companies profits are going to sky-rocket just like every Christmas season. So good luck with that. Losers!
