Fistfights, Dirt-Cheap Guns, and Utter Craziness On Black Friday Walmart
Some bared fists in the quest for a bargain, while others acted more nobly, rallying against the superstore in the fight for fair wages on the retailer’s busiest day of the year.
Gun fever was the hit theme of a new post-Thanksgiving tradition, with bargain hunters out in droves taking advantage of Walmart’s firearms discounts, a move that many activists have deemed irresponsible.
The nation’s largest gun seller came under fire today for aggressively marketing its firearms, going so far as to feature a Black Friday “Manager’s Specials Sale” that promises 20 percent off select long rifles and shotguns at stores licensed to sell firearms, according toHuff Post.
ASDA ,the UK’s WalMart colony instituted its own ” Black Friday ” farrago.And guess what happened ? No,you needn’t bother,the blindingly obvious happened a la Americana.Except for the guns ; in spite of all its many and diverse failings of the UK ,allowing morons to acquire deadly weaponry isn’t one of them.
All in all a sad day for all those striving for higher ideals .It serves as a painful reminder as to just how insidious and universal ideological subservience amongst the general population is under Capitalism.
