“Always be prepared” the old Boy Scout motto goes. The same adage is taken to its extreme as the underlying theme of a new Discovery Channel program called “Doomsday Bunkers” and National Geographic’s “Doomsday Preppers”. The shows are typical of the genre. They are a cross between “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, “Meercat Mansion” and “Extreme Home Makeover” only without those achingly adorable little meercats, the big bus moving reveal or postmodern fashion sense of lycra enhanced fabrics and self-tanners. There is a lot of camouflage, khaki and polo shirt prison-style in “Doomsday Bunkers” and “Doomsday Preppers”. I guess it doesn’t matter if one is well dressed for a trip straight to Hell.
What are most interesting about these types of programs are the people and the underlying decision making processes that motivates becoming a Prepper. What is a Prepper? Why are they so blindingly ignorant of how futile their efforts are? How do they circumvent the mental health screening to purchase weapons? Who are these people? Do Christian Preppers understand how dangerous doing business with LDS members can be? When will they learn there are no ice cubes in Hell? Far too many of the mainstream media reports gloss over the real dangers to and of these people and give lip service to the LDS companies that profit from mental illnesses such as enthusiastic paranoia.
The Prepper Movement – A Flirtation with Cannibalism?
Prepper (noun): An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances or lifestyle without significant reliance on other persons (i.e., being self-reliant), or without substantial assistance from outside resources (govt., etc.) in order to minimize the effects of that change on their current lifestyle. (Definition from www.Prepper.org )
Preppers by definition seem innocuous enough, until one delves deeper. The definition makes it sound like this is a group of people that keeps a low profile and don’t impose on others. Nothing could be further from the truth. The overwhelming majority of Preppers are LDS Mormon affiliated with a growing number of unwary Christians being tricked into following their sinful habits. Mormons can be all about imposing on others, like knocking on doors and interrupting a person’s efforts to post enlightening corrections to the misguided on the internet. Anything that involves Mormons should be viewed with a sideways squinty eye.
Are Prepper Networks Really Just a Cannibalistic Cattle Drive? Yup.
Mormons are currently commanded and required to keep one year of food storage on hand. Suspiciously, the command used to be 7 years. Because Mormons are constantly threatened that the end is near and that Jesus Christ is coming from another planet, they are taught from a young age that food storage is a necessity. So why the sudden lowering in the number of years supplies stockpiled from 7 to only 1? The popularity of the Prepper Movement and history of the LDS Church reveals shocking answers.
A historical understanding of the LDS Church reveals why LDS is a perfect cradle for nurturing the preparation or “Prepper” movement. The LDS Church has endured massacre, discrimination and homosexual Broadway success as part of God’s wrath and judgment. The bloody horror of the Donner party is a crime that will haunt the Mormon people forever and is central to the Prepper movement. ‘Prepping’ is a way to avoid empty bellies and eating the weak from the LDS herd first as some back-weird thinking form of compassionate canabalism. Yes, joining this dangerous movement puts many Christians on a fast track to becoming a long pork feast for the LDS Church.
Before anyone gets all excited, take a deep breath and get some oxygen to your brain. Let’s think about this, chew the cud as it were.
Many of the ‘Prepper networks’ want personal information, including where one lives, and an email address before one may participate in the information sharing forums. There is no anonymity from the LDS Church for those that participate in these forums. The information willingly provided is information which can be used trace your physical address, coordinate a raid on your bunker and eat your wife and kids. Okay, maybe not your wife, if she’s got some fertility left in her.
Teaching real Christians how to prepare by stockpiling, performing pseudo military style drills or finding a ‘trustworthy supplier’ for a bunker allows the teacher to build trust and confidence with the non-Mormon target. Remember, Christians of the past have discriminated against and massacred Mormons. LDS members have not forgotten, and you shouldn’t either. It’s all part of the plan to re-occupy Missouri and eliminate the enemy with trust and confidence.
Trust and confidence for the Christian might mean overlooking issues with a single or even double source air supply in an underground bunker. Perhaps the unsuspecting might fail to notice the ease of cutting off or chemically fouling a bunker’s air supply and waiting for the inhabitants to slip into a carbon dioxide daze before raiding. As an anti-government movement, no one may note that property titles are a matter of public record, that oversight on the manufacture of these bunkers is unregulated and metal detectors for uncovering the exact location of a 3,000ft2 steel bunker are cheap. Even realizing all of that, some mindless souls may still feel the need to socialize within the movement and use ‘recommended suppliers’.
If the existence of a well-organized group, with known ties to cannibalism, holding personal information about you, your family and your stockpile supplies for a coming apocalypse seems okay then good luck with that. For the more curious, consider other dubious facts.
Hiding in Plain Sight – the Art of Jon McNaughton
Jon McNaughton gained the trust of many Tea Party Patriots with his enchanting “One Nation Under God” portrait which plucked the dainty heartstrings of true Americans. Many in the Tea Party, those identifying themselves as Independents, Survivalists and Defenders of Liberty are also part of the Prepper Movement and find comfort in the art of Mr. McNaughton. Unfortunately, many of these same very trusting souls overlook the meaning revealed under ultraviolet light.
If that isn’t enough to gag on an MRE, dig a little further.
Why are there no Black Preppers?
After some strong digging, I found one blog that seemed to speak the truth. Written by a authentic African-American blogger.
“Another issue is security. Being black means, you’re likely to live among blacks. And since we have a much higher homicide rate than any group, simply being black dramatically increasing the likelihood that you will be murdered both under normal conditions and during a crisis.”
The LDS Church sees blacks and people of color as being cursed and having a gamey or musky taste when grilled. In addition to fits of homocide as mentioned above, one might see the logic in few African American’s taking a cotton to the movement.
Where are the Jewish Preppers?
Consider this, as God’s chosen people, do they really care about having a special bunker? With only a day’s worth of oil, the lamps burned for 7 days and nights and that was without being baptized by the LDS Church. And while we are on the subject of baptism of deceased Jewish persons, my friend, I think it is clear what is going on. As has been well documented LDS Mormons have problems interacting with others and making good decisions like boarding the dog instead of strapping him to the top of the car and taking a 17 hour drive to Canada. This baptism of deceased Jews is just the LDS Church’s way of trying to transmorgify their own social ineptitude onto God’s chosen people. The Jews aren’t buying it. I find it oddly ironic that the LDS Church members want to promote themselves as survival specialists when their crowned political king can’t figure out what to do with the dog that isn’t obliquely stupid. Oy!What a schmegege bunch!
Why are there no Homosexual Preppers?
While homosexuals seem to be welcome additions into the Prepping community, some calls for membership in a gays for self reliance fellowship are pretty much unanswered. This could be because as ‘damaged meats’ known homosexuals would not be invited to dinner as it were. I don’t think being snubbed should bother the sodomites. For the most part, the homosexual community is more likely to stock up on lubes, clean out the liquor store, play every Liza Minnelli and Cher album at full volume and throw the biggest, Gayiest Block Party Evah than worry over if they have enough supplies for doomsday.
Oddly, the homosexual community might have the more Christian idea compared to the LDS Mormons, only without the exposed manjingles and Cher Marathon. If I could turn back time, I would do everything I could to see that song destroyed in the garbage disposal of time.
Is Prepping Christian? No it is not.
That is not to say that home canning is evil or even making some deer sausage is bad. But thoughtfully plotting for and dare I say wishing for a doomsday is just wrong. Scripture tells the faithful that worry is something we must not do. There is far too much enthusiastic paranoia for my taste.
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. – Matthew6:31-33 KJV
