The Psy-Ops War on Preppers: This Has Become a Two-For-the-Price-of-One Crisis

The Daily Sheeple – by Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper

First of all, where is the headquarters of this “Doomsday Preppers Movement” I’ve been reading about?  And where can I sign up? I didn’t realize there was an organized movement, one deserving of capital letters.  Who is the leader of this “movement”?  I’d like to meet him (or her) immediately!

The propaganda machine is not only going after guns in the wake of the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School – this has become a two-for-the-price-of-one crisis, allowing the government and media to yet again, demonize preppers.

Psychological Warfare: Various techniques are used, by any set of groups, and aimed to influence a target audience’s value systems, belief systems, emotions, motives, reasoning, or behavior. It is used to induce confessions or reinforce attitudes and behaviors favorable to the originator’s objectives, and are sometimes combined with black operations or false flag tactics. Target audiences can be governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.

Yesterday the mainstream media began churning out articles about Nancy Lanza, the mother of the shooter, Adam Lanza.  When you read the following quotes, ask yourself: “How many of these comments could describe ME?”

A few descriptive quotes:

  • Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world. (Riehl World View)
  • According to reports, Nancy Lanza was a so-called ‘prepper’, a part of the survivalist movement which urges individuals to prepare for the breakdown of society by training with weapons and hoarding food and other supplies.  ( The UK Independent)
  • Reports are starting to emerge of the troubled young man and his unusual upbringing.  (Yahoo)
  • Dan Holmes, owner of a landscaping firm who worked on the family’s home, said she was an avid gun collector: ‘She told me she would go target shooting with her kids.’ (UK Daily Mail)
  • Marsha Lanza described Nancy as ‘self-reliant’.( The UK Independent)
  • He was reportedly homeschooled by his mother, a school principal and gun enthusiast, who wasn’t satisfied with the education her son was receiving.. (Yahoo)
  • As America searches for answers, investigators are turning towards Nancy Lanza’s supposed identification as a survivalist.  (Yahoo)
  • Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’.  (UK Daily Mail)
  • Mother of Sandy Hook school gunman Adam Lanza was a ‘prepper’ survivalist preparing for economic and social collapse, say reports. ( The UK Independent)
  • Mrs Lanza is thought to have trained her sons, Adam and Ryan to shoot, even taking them to local ranges. ( The UK Independent)
  • ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense. She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’  (UK Daily Mail)

Gee…they say this stuff like it’s a BAD thing.

Let’s see.

  • Stockpiles (or hoards) food….check.
  • Takes children target shooting….check.
  • Preparing for economic and/or social collapse….check.
  • Serious about home defense….check.
  • Home is well-fortified against criminals….check.
  • Skilled with weapons….check.
  • Survivalist philosophy….check.
  • Self-reliant….check.
  • Believes that we are capable of educating our children at home….check.

Nancy Lanza’s description could apply to nearly any prepper.  Preppers have been cast in an ugly light for quite some time.  We are painted as camo-clad survivalists, clenching a knife in our teeth while unloading an automatic weapon into some real or imagined threat.  After our Rambo-esque rampage, we will crouch in the forest by a campfire, shoveling down an MRE while glaring suspiciously into the dark, a large Katana hunting knife close at hand with which to dispatch the next enemy.

The assault on preppers through the media is becoming more and more focused.  Let’s look at some recent examples.

We were described last month by emergency manager Valerie Lucus-MacEwen as “socially selfish” – even though the existence of prepared people makes her supplies go further to help the unprepared.  In an editorial meant for other emergency managers, Ms. Lucus-MacEwen arrogantly asserted, “You might wonder why someone like me, who has been in the business of encouraging disaster preparedness for a very long time, is so critical of people who are doing just that. It’s because they are being socially selfish – preparing themselves and the hell with everyone else.  Instead of spending time and energy making changes that would benefit the larger community, in their very narrow focus of loyalty they are more concerned about themselves.”

The National Geographic program Doomsday Preppers also has had a lot to do with the demonization of preppers – it’s a full-court press propaganda attack against preppers.  The program finds the most outrageous examples of preparedness possible and edits to make them look foolish.  An article on the American Preppers Network explains the modus operandi:

The show severely skews Preppers in an effort that can be summed up as “making good television”.  This is evident not only through viewing the show itself, but through the format they have built the show around.  Some highlights of that format include:

  • Featuring one Prepper for 15 minutes only, ensuring that you don’t get too comfortable with them or learn very much about them
  • Requiring each guest to pigeon-hole themselves into one thing they are preparing for – almost always a “doomsday” scenario
  • Creating conflict and drama via their “experts” who review the segment and then condemn or condone what the Prepper has done – all within the context of the “one thing” they’re preparing for

Do you really believe that each of the families on that show only focus on one particular scenario?  No – they are portrayed in a way to marginalize the philosophy of preparedness.  We, as preppers, are a threat to the powers that be.

One participant on the show, David Sarti, learned that his appearance could have serious ramifications.  Mr. Sarti “took one for the team” when, only days after the program aired, however, David Sarti was declared “mentally incompetent”….and his guns were seized.  All of them.  Mr. Sarti, who has no criminal record, is no longer allowed to own guns.  He tells his story here.

Apparently, the constitution no longer applies to those who are categorized as preppers.

The accusation of insanity came after he went to see his cardiologist for some chest pains and shortness of breath.  So far, it sounds sane and rational to me.  The cardiologist, Dr. Andre C. Olivier, whose name and contact information I am delighted to publish, had Mr. Sarti held at the hospital for psychiatric evaluation and broke doctor patient confidentiality by contacting the authorities.

Then it really went to hell on a greased slide.  Mr. Sarti, because of his stay in the psychiatric unit, was then declared “mentally incompetent”.  His very large collection of guns was then stolen removed from his possession.  He is no longer allowed to own weapons.

Earlier this month, Maryland resident Terry Porter had his home descended upon by 150 armed federal agents and local police officers. The raid also included helicopters, SWAT crews, armored vehicles and excavation equipment.

His crimes?  He was known as a prepper, he was unhappy with the reelection of Barack Obama, and he owned guns. He “openly admitted being a prepper.”

So, why all the vilification? Why are preppers the new “boogeymen”?  Why are we being pigeonholed as people who homeschool our kids and turn them into mass murderers of elementary school students?

Simple…because we don’t NEED help.  We do not require the assistance of the government.  We don’t need to line up for 5 hours to wait for a paltry bottle of water and an MRE after a hurricane strikes. We don’t call 911 and hide in a closet waiting for the police to arrive.

Preppers threaten the very existence of all of the social safety nets that are set up.  We can’t be easily manipulated by the offer of a free flu shot and a grocery store gift card in exchange for our weapons.  We think critically and don’t automatically accept the programming of the mainstream media, whose job it is to provide people with the opinions that they should hold.  We don’t shovel in the HFCS-laden genetically modified crap, otherwise known as “food”, killing our brain cells and dumbing us down into cattle to be easily led to slaughter.

We are the last bastion of independent self-reliant thinkers.  And the powers that be are very afraid of those who think for themselves, rather than regurgitating the media-presented party line.

I don’t know why Adam Lanza went on a rampage and killed 26 people last week.  But I do know that it wasn’t because his mother was a homeschooling prepper who stored up food and taught him to fire a gun at a paper target.

  1. They are trying to demonize us in the eyes of our neighbors. Then use the sheeple types to spy on us and “denounce” us to the authorities. Typical commie tactics. The traitors will be promised a share of your preps. OPSEC , OPSEC , OPSEC , people !!!

  2. WTF? Sarti no longer “allowed” to own guns? Last I checked, you walk into a gun-show, plonk down your cash, and walk off with your guns. Where is the part where they check to make sure you’re not David Sarti?
    Can somebody correct me on this? Is it a new thing checking in all 50 states for psychiatric issues at gun shows?

    You can even buy gun parts through the mail, or has that all been stopped as well?

    And for god’s sake, if you’re gonna prep, don’t tell anybody, and definitely don’t go on national television. Way too many left wing haters out there.

  3. My Fellow Americans:

    People may agian be missing the point of why “Preppers” are getting thrown into the mix. Allow me to suggest a few ideas:

    1) Preppers tend to indicate people who are awake, know, or at least have an idea of how criminal this gov’t is, and are showing a spirit of self-sufficiency, which is contrary to the gov’t plan of having EVERYONE completely dependent of the gov’t,.. FOR EVERYTHING!

    Afterall,.. isn’t that really the basis of communism/socialism?

    2) One of the ways gov’t can quickly get conttrol of any population is through,.. food control.

    If the people rebell, all the gov’t wants to be able to do is shut down the food distribution chain, and people can only hold out as long as their food will allow them.

    History is repleat with such tactics being used,.. one of the most famous (or at least well know by us that study military tactics) is the Julius Caesar’s siege of Alesia in September of 52 B.C.

    He simply starved them out (although there was a battle by the gallic forces),… they sacrificed their women and children when food ran low, but reinforcements had not yet arrived.

    Analysis: Since the FBI has made “preppers” (people who store food in particular) one of their top “indicators” of a domestic terrorist,.. and our treasonous gov’t is now rolling that into the mix with this shooting, this a CLEAR indicator that they will be cutting the food supply in the future, that they don’t want anybody to be able to hold on under seige conditions, and they are intending a complete lock down of the country at some point in the not to distant future.

    My fellow Americans,.. for God’s sake whatever you do,.. do NOT view the actions of our gov’t as being in your interest,.. that only makes many of their activities, claims and statements appear confusing,.. instead, the right way to view them, AT ALL TIMES,.. is an “Enemy Force In Occupation”, and all the actions, statements and requirements they are undertaking will be become crystal clear as movements by an enemy force that is readying itself for a massive attack.

    The gov’ts actions and statements give you a strong clue as to how they intend to carry out their final stage of complete overthrow and capture of the USA.

    Good luck my fellow Patriots, stock up on food while you can,.. it seems we are getting close to D-Day, H-Hour when our gov’t fully commits itself to the complete enslavement of all Americans.

    JD – US Marines – The 2nd Civil War has ALREADY begun,.. and the first shots were not fired by us,.. but by our treasonous gov’t as they slaughtered our innocent children.

    1. “U.S. Marine Fighting Tyranny” – you are right on target, my friend!

      33,000 deaths, per annum, in the U.S. due to vehicles – vehicular deaths.

      Maybe Obama should BAN ALL CARS? What about the innocent children the U.S. Gov’t is killing with its drone strikes, halfway around the planet? Maybe Obama should BAN ALL DRONES?

      Gee, I wonder, is there maybe a link, between BIG PHARMA, and guns being blamed for all these heavily-medicated mass killing sprees?

  4. I love the cover title of the NEW YORK POST,


    I suddenly hear the film noir sounds, “Dun…, dun…, DUNNNN!!!!!!!………” after it.

    Hahahahaha!!! New York Post is so pathetic. The title itself is so childish. But of course, that is the only language that the sheeple understand with their lack of intelligence.

    1. Hi NC,

      You know,. I would line the bottom of my bird’s cage with it,… but the New York Post is a complete insult even to Parrot Shit.

      JD – The Ministry-Of-Proganda is alive and well in the US,.. and NY especially!

  5. If someone ever asks you if you’re a survivalist, ask them if they wear their seatbelt, if they say yes, tell them they are one too!

  6. Maybe the Boy Scouts should change their motto. They don’t want to be considered a terrorist organization. Maybe, “Be prepared to do what the government tells you to do.”

  7. When I was a kid growing up my favorite fable was the Grasshopper and the Ant.
    Looking back armed with new definitions, the Ant was a “Prepper” and the Grasshopper was a “Progressive”. The grasshopper always got a rude surprise when the SHTF.
    The “Lib’s” have spent 2600 years (since old Aesop wrote it) trying to get us to stop making them look like fools.

  8. Prepper describes most 19th century rural American families, not to mention the founders of this country. What about well stocked pantries?

  9. just so you know,
    this is not an american thing – the coming shitstorm i mean.

    when it goes down, it will be in multiple country’s – the jew controlled ones.
    us,canada,mexico(probably), the u.k. australia and probably a number of other european country’s.

    they have all been taking the same steps – if anything america is behind and just following the tricks that have been used in the other country’s.

    i suspect america is a problem to them, it must fall at the same time, but it’s so well armed that dis-arming and terrorising the public is going much slower.

    just remember a few things.
    when it comes – dont bunker down, and dont go into the countryside.
    you wont stand a chance.

    any military person will tell you the most feared thing is urban combat – a city favours the defenders – specially if they know the place.
    drones, thermal imaging, spotters are all useless in heavily built-up areas.
