Black Friday, America’s Very Own Purge Day


Black Monday marks the day in 1987, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost almost 22% in a single day. That event marked the beginning of a global stock market decline. Inspiring.

Black Tuesday refers to the great crash of 1929, which kicked off the decade-long Great Depression. Pleasant.

Black Wednesday, September 16, 1992, is also known as the day that George Soros broke the Bank of England. It has been reported that he made a $1 billion profit that day.

Black Thursday was so named because on Thursday, Oct. 24, 1929, the Dow Jones Industrial Average crashed 11% , causing the Wall Street crash of 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression of the 1930s. Uplifting!

No prizes for anyone who can figure out why Black Friday was so fortuitously named. If you guessed that it was because retailers are “in the black” (aka profitable) on that day, you just fell for mainstream programming.

If you guessed that it was because of a yearly bout of extreme violence that continues merely because retailers LOVE exploiting consumers who can’t afford stuff at full price—an issue that is clearly the result of consumers paying way too much for the slave-labor-produced crap the other 364 days of the year… you’d be absolutely correct!

Here are just a few of the most disturbing videos that highlight the BLACK heart of consumers and retailers alike:


An adult woman ruthlessly grabs a rice cooker from a toddler. Shockingly, the woman then proceeds to grab one of the rice cookers that the child’s mother was holding. First off, why does anyone need THREE rice cookers? And second, doesn’t this constitute child abuse or something?

A Walmart employee was apparently fed up with all the pushing and shoving, and decided to get in on her share of the madness. It’s unclear who started the fight; however; these actions perfectly demonstrate just how beautiful the Black Friday spirit can be. None of that “giving” bullsh** that retailers guilt you into on Christmas, nothing sells crap like blood-lust and mayhem!

This guy COULD’VE just walked around the refrigeration unit. But COULD’VE doesn’t cut it on Black Friday!

This one is just a mass brawl. Pretty self-explanatory.

Now, some people put up a fight when they’ve been caught by the police for actually stealing crap. But to risk being arrested and charged with felony assault on an officer, simply because you were trying to BUY a TV? Sigh.

IF only these people would save that fighting spirit for the ruling elite who lets this happen year after year. IF only these people would fight the 0.01% who have presided over the wealth distribution, causing their miserable inability to afford these crap products without a discount…

But no, let’s fight EACH OTHER on THE PURGE day, once every year, so we can get ALL that out of our system and be good little sheep for the elite for the rest of the year.

  1. I totally agree with everything said here and can not believe what idiots people can be. Its not just black friday, watch the lines when a new cell phone comes out.

  2. Most people buy more “stuff” than they would ever need and as far as kids go
    most of them are bored with the toy before the day is over. What a waste.

    • Im dumbfounded! why would someone even bring a child out on black friday knowing the kind of crap that happens. that’s like child neglect or something.

      • i would agree with you kinda there, but why should parents have to be worried about taking there kids out shopping in a public place, i wouldn’t take my kids out on a day like that like but still. that stuff should not be happening… people should have more respect for each other. and if an adult snatched something of one of my children like that id of dropped what ever i had in my hand and dropped them to floor as well…. PS. its not child neglect and should not even be considered as that

  3. Reminds me of the “Christmas” episode in Sliders TV series. Everyone is in debt trying to pay off their consumer purchases.

  4. Once again, the ‘mericans have made me thankful I am Canadian. They put themselves on the world stage with their daily stupidity. I am also thankful the cancer does not cross our boarders and spread to Canada.
