Is there a disturbance in the Stupid?

As discussed also earlier in this post, liberals are scared (or pretending to be scared) shitless about impending doom as Zerohedge explained yesterday in an articles headlined Liberal Preppers Are "Tired Of Being Perceived As Wusses" - Stock Up On Guns, Food As Trumpocalypse Looms. PeakStupidity has no problem at all with prepping, as we feel it is a very prudent thing, no matter who has been or will be elected to office in the near future. The financial stupidity build-up has been immense, and is not something that we will legislate our way out of.

As to the left-wing preppers, could it be that there is a lull in The Stupid? If the article is not exaggerating, this could be a hole in the Stupidity as large as a 3-day period of blue skies in Canton, China (some call it "Guangzhou", just like some call corn "maize" - who cares.) It doesn't mean that the stupidity has dissipated globally, it's just a nice respite - time to get out for a walk, charge one's batteries, and drink a coupla beers.

Colin Waugh bought a shotgun four weeks before November’s election.

An unapologetic liberal, he was no fan of firearms. He had never owned one before. But Waugh, a 31-year-old from Independence, Missouri, couldn’t shake his fears of a Donald Trump presidency — and all of the chaos it could bring. He imagined hate crimes and violence waged by extremists emboldened by the Republican nominee’s brash, divisive rhetoric. He pictured state-sanctioned roundups of Muslims, gays, and outspoken critics.

“I kept asking myself, ‘Do I want to live under tyranny?'” said Waugh, who supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary and later backed Hillary Clinton. “The answer was absolutely not.”
You don't want to live under tyranny, smart guy this Colin, but uhh, then why'd you vote for the Hildabeast, you stupid fuck?

“We’re tired of being perceived as wusses who won’t survive when shit hits the fan,” said Stacy, a Texas Democrat who recently caught the prepper bug. She spoke with Vocativ on the condition we not publish her last name. “I, for one, don’t like to be thought of as some precious snowflake.”
Alright, got no problem with that. How long are you going to keep up the facade of being a Democrat, then?

While most of these liberal preppers say they are readying for any disaster — natural, manmade, or even zombie — a doomsday scenario at the hands of a President Trump continues to be a primary concern.

“With the new administration I worry about Nazi-style camps that would include my wife, our twins and myself,” said Melissa Letos, who lives with her family on a five-acre spread near Portland, Oregon. In a recent interview, she said she raises chickens, strives to keep a year’s supply of canned food, and is able to hold her own with a firearm. She and her family plan to a build a bunker-style basement in the future.
It sounds like Melissa (and the rest of these people) really want the Feral Government to leave them the hell alone! I'M! WITH! HER! But, but ... wait ... it sounds like Melissa and her friends are ... OMG .... like Libertarians or those evil Constitutionalists!
They are like Survivalists and shit!

From one (part-time, albeit) prepper to another: Welcome to the party, pal!

The Stupid, a local minimum with positive 2st-order partial-derivatives, is at. [/Mathematics Yoda]

UPDATED 4 hrs. later:] Just saw this - "" wife, our twins and myself,” said Melissa Letos." Wait, what the ...., Oh, I see, so that's how it is in their family. OK, added another topickey to this post - Genderbenders [Rev 1.2, update A.5.12]
