Lefty journo goes to a convention of preppers and engages in the practice of modern journalism; depicting people with non-progressive views as freaks, idiots, and… of course… racists, so that other lefty progressives can feel better about themselves.
I’d learned that preppers are, without exception, a bunch of fat racists playing with guns in the woods and throwing money down the drain to buy underground shelters and dehydrated foods to survive an event that’s never going to happen. Also, probably, they have at some point posted in the same internet forums as someone who went on to be a spree killer.
Confronted with the reality that prepping isn’t necessarily about Doomsday, but also about being ready for events like Hurricane Katrina or a large scale power blackout; lefty journo grudgingly concedes the point. Then decides that life after a major apocalypse wouldn’t be worthy living, because it would be too hard and boring.
Why would you want to survive the apocalypse?
Even though there was everything you could possibly need to make it after the world ends, there was not one single form of post-apocalyptic entertainment on sale. No card games, no books, no portable DVD players. Nothing.
Yeah, it would suck if your only sources of entertainment in the post-Apocalypse relied on interactions with other people. And, you know, obviously books and card games are impossible to acquire anywhere other than a prepping convention.
I do know of a gay couple, hereabouts, who converted their basement sex dungeon into a bunker for prepping supplies. They are also in the process of selling their home and moving to Montana. Don’t ask me how I know these things, I just do.
