He’s at it again. So-called political activist and well-known loon Mark Dice once again took to the streets on “Grey Thursday” (aka Thanksgiving) and Black Friday dressed as Santa Claus to shame shoppers with a bullhorn. As annoying as I think Dice is (he loves to claim that celebrities are “satanist illuminati members,” I still got a laugh out of his antics.
Dice berated the shoppers for:
“ruining the tradition of Thanksgiving,” and thanked them for “…not spending time with grandma and grandpa and leaving them and destroying the very fabric of society to buy more slave goods. “
He went on to say:
“I bet you don’t even have a retirement plan, do you? I bet you don’t have an ounce of silver. But you’re going to go buy more garbage with credit cards to impress people you don’t even like with money you don’t even have. Way to go, debt slaves!”
In an interview with equally nutty Alex Jones on Infowars.com, Dice explains that he feels disenchanted with the path that America is going down and spouted off about credit card debt (which he has a point on, in my opinion) “family values” and consumerism. He also said:
“They are destroying the very fabric of the family… On Thanksgiving, a day when we’re supposed to be thankful for what we have, they’re sacrificing their families to go and get more iPhones, more iPads, bigger televisions so that they can isolate themselves in their own little world.”
Now, you couldn’t pay me to go out shopping on Black Friday, let alone on Thanksgiving, so I found this whole bizarre thing pretty hilarious. I mean, come on. He said “Ho Ho Ho, you’re a disgrace to Christmas,” and he had an excellent point when he said that people are buying things the don’t need to impress people they hate. Dice has made a tradition of this little stunt, and I for one, can’t wait to see what he does next year.
