Survivalist: I Rejected Doomsday Preppers Because They Wanted Me to Eat an Iguana
Most of the Doomsday Preppers folks are living off in rural areas somewhere, with plenty of land and plenty of guns. The show caters somewhat to the perception of survivalists as wacky gun nuts, which many of the quieter preppers in urban areas think gives the movement a bad name. And the rest of the preppers they find have a certain, let's say, fondness for the camera. Check out this mess:
I will not kill an animal if I don't need to kill it..........certainly not for a conservation minded network like National Geographic (that would be bad press), and certainly not for food when I don't need to. That is probably why your show doesn't play well with most preppers I have met (in the hundreds)....(I have a degree in Psychology and Marketing, so I know a little about these things)..Preppers are seriously conservation minded, and it won't fly. It is like me chopping down a good fruit tree for fire wood....how stupid is that.... I can catch a couple of the little guys and say "If I let these little guys go now, then each one will have 5 offspring, and each of their 5 offspring, and so on...so if in the future I should even need the food, I will have 100 iguanas, instead of NONE because I needlessly killed one now.....(me looking at the little lizard), go on little guy, and I hope we never have the need to put you in a pot, ohhh, the neighbor 3 doors down has a lot of nice flowering plants....bye little fella"...................
