WalMart protestors get arrested, WalMart Black Friday rioters do not. (Updated)


You can apparently rampage in a WalMart ( see any number of YouTube vids already up about today)
but you cannot protest about your working conditions outside of a WalMart.
Bellevue, Wash., SWAT team moves into position at Wal-Mart protest -
At least 15 arrested at Walmart protest in Bellevue, Wash. -
( from Breaking News feed)




10 protesters arrested at a demonstration by about 75 people outside a Walmart in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, allegedly for blocking traffic

1. Yes, the rioters are fulfilling the neo-Confederacy fantasies; the protesters are not.

It is really very understandable when you keep in mind the unreasonable power that has been given to the Koch Brothers and their cryptro-feudalist cohorts.

3. I really hope shoppers in Belleview STOP shopping at that Walmart...forever.

I hope they go entirely out of business.

5. that's because

Protesting and asking for better wages goes against the Prime Directive of the Corporate overlords. BUT if you are willing to maim and trample for the god of CONSUMERISM, you will be rewarded for being a good proletariat, and they may increase the chocolate rations next week.

(it's scary and disgusting, what we have come to...this is no longer a free country)

6. I'm reminded of Zoolander

Entertainment reporter at fashion awards: "Oh, you hate to see something like that at an event like this: ugly protesters bothering beautiful people."

7. What a great post. So perfectly revealing of the corruption

they have put into place.

They WANT those riots.

They fear protest and exposure of their corruption.

Huge K&R.

8. Along same lines

We all noticed when Tea Party held marches and protests, and carried GUNS,
that the police just stood around. I don't remember if they even had their riot gear.
But any group of 5 or more leftist people are met with full on riot gear and attacked by the police.

As if we needed reminding of who the owners of this country are....

9. +10000 Yup. The Tea Party was co-opted by corporate politicians.

Occupy refused to be co-opted by corporate politicians.

Occupy has been smeared, surveilled, threatened, and brutally attacked in federally coordinated responses.
