What doesn’t help is the image that preppers put out by having those stupid arsed shows. Most of us that prep are not goobers that cannot read or write. Those shows do nothing but paint preppers (albeit conservatives) as gun toting morons who cannot form a sentence and shy a chromosome or something.
Same way middle class white men have been re-defined by the slew of shows that always have the male lead as a waffling, scared of his wife, pop music listening, slob or bean pole screw-up married to an overbearing hottie. He always seems to wear the latest Hollister slob looking clothes or a civil servant uniform. The kids in the shows don’t respect him and he is always painted out to be out of touch and weak. Lump in all those stupid movies about Vegas vacations and jackass movies. Even when a “man” is portrayed he is often proven in the show to be wrong or someone who is on a hair trigger.
What do you think the purpose of those shows IS?
It’s not the “preppers” that are making those shows.
It’s agenda driven producers that are doing it.
And, they’ll pick the people and the cuts that reflect that agenda.
Jack Spirko (survival podcast) refuses to have anything to do with them,
and urges all his listeners to do the same.
And do not forget any man of the cloth. If they show a priest or preacher, he is just reciting the lines at a wedding or funeral.
I think "Gran Torino" was the last time I saw a man of the cloth having any moral bearing on the plot.
NatGeo is trying to straddle getting advertising dollars while bashing preppers. It was blatant the first time I saw the show.
Don’t forget to add commercials to your list. The latest on the radio is some guy excited over some wireless printer that prints from his various devices at various locations in his home while his wife/narrartor explains the scenerio with dripping patience. Kinda like the ad with the long suffering wife and the slacker hammock napping husband in the background...wife says *sorry girls, he’s taken*. LOLOLOL... sorry bad example that one still makes me laugh.
While Black males are shown as the bright, with-it, masculine guys with the blonde on his arm.
The 40 year war against White males has definately been won. (Ahem, guess who's next.)
The demonization and idiotification (is that a real word?) of the white American male started several years ago in advertising and entertainment, and is now official dogma in most universities.
The American Protestant white male is a special breed who presents the greatest threat to tyranny. Ten generations of that is in my DNA. It’s who I am.
