Super-Smart ‘Doomsday Preppers’ Guy Can’t Quit Fondling His Illegal Guns For The Teevee Cameras
So let’s say you’re a felon. A particularly not-nice sort of felon, like a Level One sex offender. Let’s say you are prohibited from owning guns because of your felony-ness. Should you go on a teevee show and display the large array of weapons you keep? No you should not!
Tyler Smith believed he was doing a service to his nation by being a so-called “doomsday prepper,” readying his family for almost any disaster at his Buckley property.
But his county took issue with the convicted felon’s firearms, which law enforcement saw featured in a November episode of the National Geographic Channel survivalist TV show, “Doomsday Preppers.
Have you ever seen this show? It is a completely depressing thing to view, unless you’re super into raving paranoia and weapon-humping.
These people are not the best and the brightest. They’re more the most aggro and the baldest. Also, Mr. Doomsday Prepper Tyler Smith in particular, you are not very smart, given that it didn’t occur to you to be stealthier about your weapons-owning. You also forgot, Tyler Smith, to register your level one sex offender status, which is a big illegal no no. You are not who we wish to rely upon in the event of a zombie apocalypse or the Muslim leftist hordes overrunning ‘Merica, or whatever your particular flavor of doomsday prepping might be. Also, Tyler Smith is not a very savory person. He is pretty much the personification of unsavory.
Court records show Smith pleaded guilty in 2009 to communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, for inappropriately touching a drunken 14-year-old girl in an Auburn parking lot. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to first-degree theft in Pierce County for failing to pay for a motorcycle he purchased, according to court records.
See? Were you planning on having Mr. Thieving Pedophile be the person to lead you to safety in your Brave New World? Probably not, unless it is one of those super-dystopian Stephen King novels where the person that is the center of all power post-apocalypse is a terrible person.
And lest you think that Tyler Smith’s bad acts are all in his past, let’s go have a fun look at what he actually said on this stupid Doomsday Preppers show, the very existence of which fills us with regret for the once-noble institution National Geographic once was.
Smith made statements on the show about his doomsday prepping such as: “We’re not in it to stockpile. We’re in it to take what you have and there’s nothing you can do to stop us. We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming.”
That does not really sound like doomsday prepping, Tyler Smith! It sounds more home invasion-y than anything else, which is generally a thing people are not into, or at least if they are, they don’t brag about it on fourth-rate basic cable channels. He’s right about one thing, though. He actually IS our worst nightmare, because a heavily armed unregistered sex offender who is in the grip of a completely irrational and paranoid fear that doomsday is coming and he will survive by stockpiling MREs and guns is pretty much the very last person we ever want to meet.
