Are Black Friday Riots A Preview Of Civil Unrest To Come?

Pakalert Press, a right wing prepper apocalypse fantasy HQ, warns that the “riots” of Black Friday shoppers this year are just a preview of the total societal meltdown to come. Their article, entitled Are Black Friday Riots A Preview Of The Civil Unrest That Is Coming When Society Breaks Down?, offers the following photograph as an example of what a post-social-breakdown riot might look like.

The article asks, “If Americans will trample one another just to save a few dollars on a television, what will they do when society breaks down and the survival of their families is at stake?”

Apparently, if this photograph of a “riot” is any indication, people will stand patiently at sales counters waiting for discounts on electronic equipment, and then go home and watch TV.

Mayhem in HD!

    I thought the same thing. I thought , wow – if these idiots pack a parking lot and store over material things, just think if they needed food for survival due to a collapse.
