Blackout United States by National Geographic – (2013) 2 stars
Run time: 1 hour, 27 minutes. This is a pretty crappy documentary. It actually shows you what not to do and how not to act, more than it shows common sense prevention or solutions for a true Shit Hits The Fan scenario. I understand that not everybody preps or is prepared to handle a Without Rule Of Law event, but that does not mean that Nat Geo is justified in giving us a program aimed at junior high school students. Every single main character in this program would have died in an extended, real-life event of two weeks or so. Instead of teaching us anything useful, Nat Geo is making us dumber and stupider.
First off, all of these people dependent on their smart phones are going to die. Dumb white teens running off into bad neighborhoods full of angry, vengeful thugs are going to die. This is happening already all across our country, in case you hadn’t noticed, where the niggahs feel it is their duty to murder and beat down defenseless whites. Then you’ve got your yuppie couple stuck in the 46th floor? Sorry, nope, they’re not going to make it either. Their social circle would break down after the first four or five days, where they’d be killing each other before they ever even got to the street and faced people that are tougher than they are. How about breaking into some of your neighboring apartments to get their food, you dumb shits? How did the apartments in that high-rise empty out so suddenly, by magic? And for those of you who think the military is going to have a happy face while they give you rationed meals, think again. Do your research on Hurricane Katrina and the similar disaster at Joplin. The military will force you to give up your weapons, shoot you on sight, and corral you into stadiums with snipers up on the roof, which is exactly what they did after Katrina.
Now, look at how they portrayed the prepper. It was one ex-military hard-ass who had it all planned out. He had a compound, a safe-house, a bunker and huge stock of packaged food, along with a number of gadgets to keep the power going. Look at how this puts prepping in the mind of the dumb TV viewer. They see all this huge amount of gear and think, I will never be able to afford all that! You know why? Because that is exactly what the producers at Nat Geo want you to think. Prepping is out of your reach. Prepping means you’ll have to compromise your humanity for others in order to stay alive. Prepping bad! Cell phones and social media good!
There is so much wrong with the prepper segments that I don’t even know where to start. First off, the daughter’s boyfriend would not have come along. Fuck that kid. Next, the military hard-ass would have had three or four other guys with him, because military guys know they need other men with similar combat and survival experience around when the lights go out. Also, the wife should have been trained in handling weapons, as well as the daughter and the younger son, at least in sighting and shooting with rifles. The kid would not have patrolled alone and the fuel tanks would not be out in the open. Trust me, if a gang of starving locals comes around, they would have killed the hard-ass, raped the wife and kids and killed them later. That’s what is happening against South African whites right now, sheep. Four or five survivalists working together, with their families, would have kept their compound secure against minor mobs of marauders.
The real fireworks will come when the American military shows up trying to force the survivalists to give up their assets.
