    "TRUMPocalypse Preppers"

    2 Corinthians 6:14
    "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"

    As a SURVIVALIST, I pay attention to many things that are not "hot topics" in the MSM world of "pop culture".
    While I care not who is marrying/divorcing whom, or which group of butt filchers won the "big game", I do watch for TRENDS and SHIFTS in the mentality and beliefs of my opposition in life.

    I have been seeing and hearing a LOT of reports/articles lately about how the "left" are "Becoming survivalists out of fear" since the election.
    Well, good for them. (and bad for us I think)

    You may be looking at this from many different angles, as are many others.
    I have seen the following mentioned, in no particular order of importance or frequency:

    "This is good because they will not have to be starving threats to us."
    "This is good because they will soon tire/bore of it and I can buy all their 'preps' at the yard sale."
    "This is good because it brings legitimacy to our crazy lifestyle if they are doing it too."
    ...... and many others.

    Maybe they WILL be able to "prep" a little and see the light.
    I hope so...... but I doubt it seriously.

    No matter your opinion, one theme has NOT changed in any manner..... these are STILL the same "libtard snowflakes" that they were last year.
    That is right, these ARE the same people, with the SAME liberal socialist beliefs and goals as when O'Barry was in office (or if Hitlery had won).

    The do not like "US", the do not like our "guns", they do not think they are the same as US, and they WILL track in the "poop" of twisted liberal mental illness.

    I know the Scripture I quoted above is meant in another context Biblically.
    But the words DO apply to our situation here.
    We DO NOT need to take these people into our midst any more than you would want to bring an unrepentant child rapist into your childs' school or Church/scouting group.

    I MUST refer back to a story I have heard and been told all my life;
    A young Choctaw girl was walking through the corn field on a crisp fall morning and came upon a little rattlesnake. It was half frozen and barely able to move, much less crawl to it's den.
    The snake called to her, "Little girl ! Please help me !".
    The girl replied, "I cannot. You are a rattlesnake and you will bite me."
    The snake promised not to bite and cajoled the girl, so she took it under her coat and warmed it, saving it's life.
    The warmed and active snake then BIT HER and slithered to the ground.
    When she cried and asked why the snake bit her after it promised not to and she had saved its life, it replied.....
    "You knew I was a rattlesnake, and you knew my nature, so why did you expect me to do any different."

    These are SNAKES that we see "prepping" and coming to our "hangouts".
    They WILL BITE. Just as sure as they would have 12 or 36 months ago.

    They will come to our forums, act all motivated, and then fade away.... or leave after they cause a riotous uproar.
    Likely running straight to various "alphabet agencies" to report all the Homegrown Terrorists that refused to be brainwashed into blissful libtardia while they were here.
    (I happen to KNOW they do this, as my being reported and quoted on their site by SPLC, from a "secure/members only" board, PROVED to me some time ago)

    So my STRONG plea to you ALL is to not be taken in by these people.
    Let them go to their coffee shops, book nooks, and libraries for information.
    Letting them into the "mix" of our forums is like allowing "just a spoonful of raw sewerage" into your pitcher of drinking water.

    That is my 2/100 on this subject.

    It is not a flexible belief, nor is it posted to be picked apart like the worn seams of a well used pack.
    It just "is what it is".
    All polite dissenting comments will be answered.
    Rude argumentative people will be assigned to my "K.M.A." list.

    I think your logic is spot on.... a snake is just that, a snake that will bite you!!

    The only dissent I can provide, maybe they will see the light when it comes to 2A rights. And that would not be a bad thing.....

    It's assumed that the unprepared / underprepared lefties are the clear and present danger in a PAW event, which seems to ignore the evident fact that not all 'righties' are necessarily prepared either, and would not be particularly adverse to appropriating that which their more prepared righty neighbours have that they don't. It warms the cockles of one's heart to know that probably as many unprepared / underprepared conservatives will be decimated / exterminated, as unprepared / underprepared 'liberals' when the Trumpocalypse descends.

    Sheep are just that...sheep. Regardless of political association... the unprepared are a danger... that hopefully starve before they are an issue in your AO. But if we want to play the political angle.... we have been preparing, shooting and training a lot longer than the newly minted lib prepper..... ;)

    I suspect it is incidental that preppers tend to be conservative in many ways, not just political.

    I watched "Watters World" this evening and he had a "Liberal Prepper" on the show. They showed some of his "preps" which were pretty pathetic and his two firearms which he shrilly declared are for "defensive purposes" only. Even more amusing is that the guns were a scoped bolt action and an EVIL ASSAULT RIFLE!! He actually had an AR just like the ones' the liberals want to ban. And everyone knows that that a scoped rifle can be a snipers gun. It like to give me the vapors.
    If this dude is any kind of example, we're in good shape.

    To survive the trumpocalypse move away from stocks and more towards bonds, gold and securities by this fall.

    I wouldn't call an AR15 defensive weapon, especially since liberals think the "AR" stands for "assault rifle" I think of them more as a mobile device.
    Area denial weapons are defensive. Crew serviced weapons with one or 2 people on them are defensive.

    Spot on post! Made me think back to Y2K, when the uber-rich folks I was doing work for prepped for the end of life as we know it. I remember one guy had 12 cases of smoked salmon stored "in case things go bad". I still have a new Honda 2000-i generator given to me after I pointed out that it would not run the clients whole house. And the guy who bought 1 case of MRE's in case everything failed. (I got those too, in February, when he decided he was safe from Y2K!) Now there were some who had me drill wells and install hand pumps, run generator connections and transfer switches, and other things that made sense, but they were few. It was mostly hilarious attempts at prepping. Looking back, none of them changed their views one bit. Most of them are still elitist liberal scum just like before Y2K. The current liberal "preppers" will be the same way. Oh yeah, even though they may buy guns, their views on 2A will not change! If they need guns it's one thing. You and I still shouldn't be allowed to have them.

    Better not let the government know what you have,the dimocrats will be wanting you to share or they will take it away to give to the ones that did not prep.

    Maybe we are terrorists. Preppers are prepping for war, right? That is why some think a pallet of ammo is not enough. Yet if one hung out in homesteading forums, canning or back to basic sites, one would meet all walks of life. I think I am tired of the stereotype. I just want to have the know-how to care for my family in case of disaster/emergency. I do not want to be an extreme, I just want to be smart in choices.

    While I don't mean to stir the pot now that the bottom is well burned, but in my lifetime self sufficiency has changed from a liberal goal and ideal to a conservative one. The whole concept of leading a good life, working hard, raising a good Christian family. defending your country, owning firearms and being able to defend your family, and being responsible for your actions, used to be the cornerstone of American life. As a child raised in a liberal Democratic family in the 1940's in the rural midwest these were the norms and we were expected to follow them. The Scouts, 4H, various Christian youth groups, the school systems, the various youth organizations, the various veterans groups, all did their best to show the rightness of these values. The conservatives were more of an ivory tower group and had more emphasis on business, world trade,and had a very similar viewpoint with the liberals on most of the daily living points. Somehow, and I don't really know how, it all changed and today's liberal has a viewpoint I can't understand and it seems that this new vision is now the official goal of both the Democratic party and most of those institutions training the next generation. I hate to use the old terms liberal and conservative as they have morphed into things I no longer understand. I do know that the changes are both severe and frightening. It no longer is only the immigrant or the enemy that we have to fear, these groups are now indoctrinating new generations into their beliefs, the DC sniper, the recent episode in London, and it don't look good. All the groups that want their "rights" all want someone else to pay for them. Don't look good.

    That's why I personally use qualifiers if I absolutely must use one of those two labels. I'm a fiscal conservative and a social ambivalent.

    Good way of putting it DarkLight, love dogs and have one, would love to go to the pound and give them all a home and pay all their vet bills etc. I don't as I can't afford to do so and I don't see as the government of this nation can afford to take care of all of the needs of all of those Americans that have needs and we certainly can not take care of the whole world. The new "liberal" with all his desires and the belief that the rich can some how pay for their desires ignores the real world and the need for capital to build the factories and land that is used well etc. While true socialism has never been tried, those groups that have tried have failed miserably and all their dreams will not make it work better this time.

    We used to talk to each other at all levels and the leaders worked for the good of the country. Now it is totally polarized at so many levels that the country is drifting into total chaos at all levels. We are acting like a 3 rate country and if we are not careful may end up as one.

    I think the issue is the lumping that goes on. If you are a liberal, you get lumped in with the snowflakes or the ones you see protesting etc. The same goes with the conservatives, I have gotten lumped into the white supremacists etc. but all I am is a person that has conservative leanings but am often accused of being a liberal because of my desire to help my fellow human.

    Now regarding the preppers are conservatives.... where did that come from? Same with why are only the liberals into recycling and caring for the environment? It is actually silly that only certain political parties care about certain things. Just FYI- I know people who vote straight ticket Democrat every single election. They have gardens, chickens, other livestock plus they can foods and eat that food all year long. How many conservative do you know that do that?

    And again, polarization happens when labels are employed. Rabid exists on both ends of the liberal-conservative spectrum. The majority actually lies somewhere between.

    True, I can stand the bible thumping ultra cons about as much as I can stand the super libtards.
    The Bible thumper are just like the liberals. Both think they know how you should live and both think they know what's best for everyone and that's how it should be, like it or not.

    However, across the street, on the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza-side of 17th Avenue were the left-wingers, some of them masking their faces, some not. Many of them were armed with long guns. You know, just like the "patriot" groups.

    While I was taking photographs of them, a woman approached me and told me that the group would not be granting interviews. She gave me a flier with a statement from something called the "Redneck Revolt," which according to the flier aims to "put the RED back in redneck."

    The flier directed people to a Facebook page and a website, and the woman said that I could contact them after the fact to ask questions.

    About that time, the group lined up, double-file, and began walking toward 19th Avenue.

    Since around 80% of murders are done by democrats, they let emotions drive their actions, believe the ends justify the means, there is but only one possible outcome...

    Their protocol is suspiciously centralized, like with most left wing protests where the people on the ground are just that and orders and the Q&A come from the man behind the curtain.

    Nonsense. As silly as it seems, cops do not record the political party of perps, it is completely irrelevant.
