If you have "no place to go," come here!

Go shopping

For example, at the Mall of America:

Glad I don't go Xmas shopping, if truth be known.

See, if you are going to write an ominous threat, it is better if you don't include a lie which is a laugh line. I mean, of course they don't actually "expect" that, they didn't expect a demonstration in the first place! What they should have said (aside from, of course "nothing"...) was something like, "Hey! Thank you for coming to the Mall of America!", which also would have been a lie, but it would have been a polite one.

I honestly don't get how disrupting innocent shoppers during the most trying shopping days of the year is going to win any points for the demonstrators. Honestly I don't. But it will win points for those who want to stiffen laws against demonstrators. It will also win customers for predatory sites like Amazon. If demonstrators want brick and mortar to die, this is a good way to get things started. If they want the little people, the employees, to lose hours, then this is an awesome accomplishment. Hellow?

And if I were a shopping mall spokesperson, I'd want to use that billboard because fear for my life if I appeared in person.

I see what the mall did as a measured response. It's private property. Demonstrators don't have rights on private property.

Don't know if you have been to the MOA, but it is just huge. It would take several thousand people being disruptive to actually disrupt anything, or even be noticed. This sign is probably more disruptive or disturbing to to innocent shoppers than the people demonstrating. In fact, I'm willing to bet shoppers wouldn't even know a demonstration was going on if there wasn't the sign to tell them so.
