The Psy-Ops War on Preppers

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.

    Thanks to Murray for passing this on.

    This is another thing the government does - politically/socially marginalize those that they don't agree with. It is all propaganda.

    They bash the military, preppers, Christians, gun owners. Anyone that doesn't fall in line. Any positive attribute is criticized as if it were a negative.


    He was one of those "friendly" people that did "nice" things. He was "generous". Must be up to no good....

    Let us see here: would not someone who goes to the 7-11 one evening to buy a quart of milk for the kid's breakfast the next morning be preparing for the event of breakfast and therefore would he not then be a prepper?
    Demonize- Discredit- portend unintelligent-
    All in the left's media playbook for anyone who does not fit in their belief system.

    I've been wondering when someone would wake up and publish something on this angle! Who's to say when you'll have had enough abuse of your liberties at the hands of an illegit Goiv't and choose to "step off the porch"....well, patriots you're being re-defined and marginalized by the moment by EVERYONE participating in "coverage" of the Sandy Hook incident! This is a good post, I hope it gets wide circulation!
