Ah Goddamn truther bullshit. Last I checked, the "grasshoppers" all armed themselves to the teeth, came in, killed all your fucking ants, and took everything you owned. So — if you're gonna tell parables, why don't ya just get ’em right.

Transcript[]

’Bout a month before shit went down, I wrote in my newsletter, Farewell Freedom: store a year's worth of food and water, because I knew, no matter what was coming, we were all nine meals from anarchy. I figured, if I could get a few people prepared — the ones who'd really listen — then maybe we'd survive when it all finally collapsed down on our heads. But not as many listened as I'd hoped. Now, those supplies are runnin' out and folks are goin' hungry. Remember the parable of the ant and the grasshopper? Well us "ants," who prepared and stored for future calamity, didn't have the heart to starve out you "grasshoppers" who danced while the sun was shining without a worry in your head for what calamities the future would bring. Now we're all paying the price. Are we gonna starve? I don't know. Fish runs are thinning out. Game is getting scarce. Can't remember the last time I saw a buck or a doe. But I'll tell you this much, we're not turning on each other. No sir, we'll never do that.
