From Billionaires to Evangelicals/Christians to the Far Right and the Far Left, “Prepping” For War, Plague, Disaster, or a Collapse is No Joke Anymore and is Now Diversified.

THE LIFE PRAYER (The Prepper’s Prayer) by Daniel Whyte III 

God, prepare us for good days and bad days;                                             

Prepare us for celebrations and tragedies;                                                       

Prepare us for weddings and funerals;                                                           

Prepare us for life and death.                                                                               

In Jesus Christ’ Name, Amen.

Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, who has been predicting World War III for over 12 years now and who predicted for over 10 years the Coronavirus Plague, which killed millions, said despite the “happy talk” and “peace and safety talk” saying “Peace, peace; when there is no peace” done by pastors, false prophets, politicians, and people, millions of people are not buying the lie that everything is all right and everything is going to be all right, and be they billionnaires, Evangelicals, Christians or the far right or the far left, people from all sectors are prepping for war, another plague, disaster, or an economic collapse. You would be wise to do thou likewise. In the words of a once famous pastor, “GET READY! GET READY! GET READY!”

LONGMONT, Colorado, March 9 (Reuters) – Brook Morgan surveyed booths at the “Survival & Prepper Show” in Colorado that were stocked with boxes of ammunition, mounds of trauma medical kits, and every type of knife imaginable.

A self-described “30-year-old lesbian from Indiana,” Morgan is one of a new breed of Americans getting ready to survive political upheaval and natural catastrophes, a pursuit that until recently was largely associated with far-right movements such as white nationalists since the 1980s.

Researchers say the number of preppers has doubled in size to about 20 million since 2017. Much of that growth is from minorities and people considered left-of-center politically, whose sense of insecurity was heightened by Donald Trump’s 2016 election, the COVID-19 pandemic, more frequent extreme weather and the 2020 racial justice protests following the murder of George Floyd.

“I’m really surprised by the number of people of color here,” Morgan said. “I always went to these shows with my family in Indiana and it was just white people who were my parents’ age. There are a lot of younger people here, too. It’s a real change.”

Morgan grew up in a prepper family and still considers herself self-reliant and ready to handle a disaster but she left the prepper world of her youth behind in part to escape the conservatism associated with the movement.

The diversification of prepping was clear last weekend at the Survival & Prepper show at the fairgrounds in Boulder County, a liberal district which President Joe Biden won in 2020 by nearly 57 percentage points over Trump. Over 2,700 people paid $10 each to attend the show, organizers said, and attendees were varied.

Bearded white men with closely cropped hair and heavily tattooed arms were there. But so were hippy moms carrying babies in rainbow colored slings and chatting about canning methods, Latino families looking over greenhouses and water filtration systems, and members of the local Mountain View Fire Rescue team, who in 2021 battled a devastating fire in the region, giving CPR demonstrations and encouraging citizens to be more prepared for extreme events.
