The Logic of Black Friday and Occupy Wall Street

I'd like to be sure that I've got this right.

People who camp out in cities to call attention to their cause and exercise their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly are dangerous anarchists who deserve condemnation and brutality, including chemical warfare.

People who camp out at stores to buy things and who generate free "news" coverage with the "get shopping" message are smart shoppers and valuable contributors to our consumption-based economy. In a way, they're economic patriots, braving the harsh elements for the sake of their families and our common good.

Okay, I just wanted to make sure I understood.
