"Occupy Black Friday" Rage: Haters Gonna Hate

The Other McCain explains the intellectual deficiencies and irrational hate upon which "Occupy Black Friday" is founded:
...why should Occupiers focus on Wal-Mart? Why not Sears, Best Buy, Target, Costco, or Dollar General? Aren’t all of those “corporations”? Aren’t they offering Black Friday specials? Aren’t the stockholders and executives of those companies as avidly in search of profits as Wal-Mart? Isn’t it only Wal-Mart’s spectacular success that makes them an especial focus of anti-capitalist rage? 
Why Wal-Mart? Because the Occupiers are ignorant, that’s why. Their arguments against capitalism appeal to the worst emotions — envy and self-pity — of people who fail under the free-enterprise system because they haven’t made the effort to understand the free-enterprise system.

If Wal-Mart Occupiers want to start a civil discussion about the Fifth Amendment, or if they want to complain about the injustice of ObamaCare and other such foolishness, I might start listening to what they have to say. Until then, they should get out of the way.
