Big Government Targets Preppers, Enlists Snitches

Could you use $500, compliments of the taxpayer? All you have to do is find a prepper buying the sort of legal items that preppers normally buy and pick up the phone. The authorities will gladly transfer the money from the taxpayer to you:

Via Mad World:

The video above is of an interview with a woman who works at LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY where the New York State Police placed a sign encouraging customers to call the terrorism tips hotline to report “suspicious activity” like purchasing MREs, flashlights, ammunition, match containers, gas masks and anything else the common “prepper” would buy. The sign was accompanied by a letter and is a part of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign that the federal Department of Homeland Security has implemented across the nation.

If you are a prepper and would like to go shopping without intrusive attention from the state police or DHS, just grow a long beard and wear a kaffiyeh on your head; the authorities will never take an interest in you.

On a tip from Wilberforce.

    That same stuff is needed for life after a hurricane too. I’ve had the power off for a week plus 3 times after a hurricane. The gov is too darn snoopy. The gov doesn’t do what it should be doing and sucks at doing what it shouldn’t be doing so the last thing I need from the gov is the idea that they know what I need to do. My neighbors either don’t have a clue what I’m up to or they are on the same page as I am.

    Start reporting people who buy Priuses, hummus, Birkenstocks, or who have Elizabeth Warren bumper stickers on their car.

    Better yet, start making a bunch of phony reports. Flood the phone lines and make their idiotic program useless. Didn’t the brown sh*tstain try something like this a few years ago?

    Oh no’s! How much will they get for turning me in if I post this?

    Lyrics for Bad Moon Rising By Creedence Clearwater Revival
    I see the bad moon arising.
    I see trouble on the way.
    I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
    I see those bad times today.
    Don’t go around tonight,
    Well it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.
    I hear hurricanes a blowing.
    I know the end is coming soon.
    I fear rivers over flowing.
    I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
    Well don’t go around tonight,
    Well it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.
    Hope you got your things together.
    Hope you are quite prepared to die.
    Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
    One eye is taken for an eye.
    Well don’t go around tonight,
    Well it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.
    Don’t come around tonight,
    Well it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.
    Songwriters: JOHN C. FOGERTY

    The gooberment couldn’t just mail out the letters and a copy of the poster? LEO’s have nothing better to do than go around and hand deliver love notes from DHS? Oh that’s right, they want to make a list of those who resist their surveillance efforts…

    G–Damnit already! When are we gonna stop screwing around? These bastards are playing HARD BALL and we’re still acting like “Well, we ARE all still Americans and…”

    Yeah? Are we? You think these vermin won’t turn you in, rat you out, get you locked up or worse? I imagine about 70 years ago they were saying “Well, we ARE all good Germans and…” as the Gestapo was kicking in the door.

    We better stop this NOW, and if a Karl Rove or a George Will or a Brit Hume or a John McCain or any other RINO gets in our way, they go too. It’s them or us.

    There is indeed a Bad Moon on the rise.

    Boy, you could make a lot of money making false reports and give all kinds of misleading information. Sounds like fun! Does anyone have a democratic donors list with names and addresses? Just sayin we could have a field day!

  • ThisObamaNation

    They are trying to criminalize preparing for a disaster, and other lawful and sane behaviors.

  • TED

    KNEW this was coming! I can’t believe they didn’t know THIS government would see them as a threat !! Besides, If you are a prepper YOU NEED to keep it on the DOWN LOW! I’s only common sense.

  • TED

    THE official Obozo theme song for sure!

  • TED

    Better make sure it’s anonymously or THAT would just get YOUR name on the
    list (if it isn’t already there).

  • TED

    That’s the left, always the opposite, ya know, like when they say they are telling the TRUTH.

  • TED

    ANYTHING that might be taken as standing on your own. You MUST be dependant on the goverment.

  • Son_of_Taz

    Yeah, that’s it!

  • Son_of_Taz

    Easy enough to do. As long as there are still pay phones around or throw-away cell phones, piece of cake. Just don’t use a credit card!

  • TED

    Sorry man, but THIS is MOST of the American people today!

  • rex freeway

    So if i prepare for a natural disaster i could be considered a terrorist. Wow. Only the current government would dream this shit up

  • whotothewhat

    Between the Post Office, UPS and FedEX I am sure I am already on a list somewhere.

  • SirButtHole

    I would not recommend that you NY’ers just start crank calling that #. Do Not Give them the addresses of Dem leaders. No never.

    The left and consequently the American government is at war with the citizens of this nation. It only makes sense that they would try to limit our access to supplies we would need to fight them. That is why they want so desperately to ban “assault” rifles even though 95% of firearm related HOMICIDES are committed with a handgun. The military style weapons are what would be most effective in stopping and overthrowing them, that is the only reason they seek to ban guns.

    Remember that those of us who have prepping are automatically considered terrorists, no trial necessary. We are legitimate military targets to our government, seems only right that we consider them to be military targets as well, returning the favor in kind as it were.

    You at war people, whether you want to be or not, whether you accept the reality or continue to live in your soccer mom fantasy world. Many of us will die in the coming insurrection but those of you who have not prepared or will not fight are already dead.

  • TED

    I’m sure I’ve made the list several times over…

  • Nina Sage

    It’s a “snitch society”, (read the book), and anyone with a cell phone is an agent of the law, Or so they think. It’s like their building up credits for use when they get caught. A snitch form of patriotism, just helping local government. Keep a close eye on the neighbor.

    $500 is a small price to pay in order to ensure people aren’t self sufficient for the next hurricane Sandy.
