To put a face to the phrase “Crisis Garden,” watch the advertisement that has aired during The Glenn Beck Program.
Recall December 1999, when everybody began fearfully preparing for the approaching Y2K Armageddon by filling their cellars with gallons of drinking water and can lids of barely edible prepared vegetables? To Glenn Beck followers that’s occurring once again. While the commercial was broadcasted a number of times on his radio program before, tv audiences got a first glimpse of the Survival Seed Bank’s “Crisis Garden” vegetable seeds during Beck’s program, where the advertisement suggested that “non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver or gold” in the upcoming economic break.
The Survival Seed Bank promotes itself as a organization selling fruit and vegetable seeds which can be used in establishing one’s own plants once the country collapses under the enormous weight of its own enormous governing administration. The very first thing to be disturbed, they declare, is the food source, which will decline in virtually no time. And by “no time,” they mean:
As the meltdown progresses, one of the first things to be affected will be our nation’s food supply. Expect soaring prices along with moderate to severe shortages by spring. If you don’t have the ability to grow your own food next year, your life may be in danger. Supply lines for food distribution in this country are about three days, meaning a dependence on “just in time” distribution systems, which will leave store shelves empty in the event of even the smallest crisis.
To retain your family members harmless and spend less money on food, cultivate your own! Survival Seed Bank gives you “nutrient-dense food for pennies per pound… enough to feed friends and family forever!” They additionally guarantee the seeds won’t be biologically altered or hybrids, which often does not seem especially wise, since genetic modification of crops has developed bigger, more robust, and more nutritious plants.
The Survival Seed organization even has a testimonies page, where somebody named Brian Williams, standing over his survival garden, exclaims, “People would drive down my street to see ‘the garden in the front yard’!” It seems a bad idea to advertise that your backyard has tasty survival plants when the approaching worldwide economic crisis forces all Us citizens to scavenge and loot their neighbors’ homes for meals, but Mr. Williams obviously just can not keep the secret to himself. And at this time there are loads more pleased customers on the webpage.
The emergency seed psicosis appears to have been to some extent driven by reports distributed on World Net Daily, suggesting that the federal government is hoarding and progressively controlling food for nefarious motives. WND has been going after the concern regularly, publishing content articles denouncing the authorities for trying to examine a cow farm, concealing the upcoming food scarcity from the American consumers and actively playing chef in our kitchens. The advertising campaign appears to been working, as the concerns have spawned the creation of a company devoted to make America once again a country of vegetable growers and farmers!
