Glenn Beck New Sponsor: Survival Seeds- Be Very Afraid

Glenn Beck's dwindling list of advertisers got a healthy boost Monday from Survival Seed Bank, a new advertiser peddling seeds to grow "crisis gardens."

Survival Seed Bank markets itself as sort of food insurance should the American government and market collapse. In the Survival Seed Bank commercial that aired Monday, a pitchman sits before a TV showing scenes of breadlines and soup kitchens from the Great Depression and asks "Are you worried about the economy? Are you ever worried that the politicians and the bankers are going to bring the whole thing crashing down? If so, pay close attention, because in an economic meltdown, non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver and gold. Afterall, securing a source of food for your family is the single most important thing you can do."

The Survival Seed Bank pitchman reminds viewers at the end of the commercial to "prepare today" because "in an economic crisis, non-hybrid seeds are the ultimate barter item."

    • Makes me wonder if these "Survival Seeds" are leftovers from the Y2K debacle. I'm sure they'll increase profits if Glenn announces "Why go out and buy potatoes when you can grow your own and make your very own batch of Freedom Fries." lol

  • I think it's more a reflection of the paranoia that has swept america.

    When the day comes you need these for your "survival", trust me, you'll already have much bigger problems on your plate....... one of which would probably be finding a plot of soil to plant them in that doesn't glow!

  • This company has advertised on shows like "Coast to Coast" for years.

    It has advertised on talk radio for years, as well.

    I can't say whether or not this product is worthwhile, but I suspect it is typical of "survival" products, in general, and therefore not worth your time, much less your money.

    Still, there is something to be learned from the very fact that a product such as this EXISTS.

    It might SEEM hilarious, but when the grocery stores are empty and winter rolls aro More..

    • No argument there...


      Go to any good Mormon's home and you'll see what needs to be done in preparation.


      Not endorsing Mormons or anything, just sayin'...with regard to survival prep and contingency, they've got the right idea.

      I live in out the country, surrounded by farms and cattle and wildlife, so we won't be in the deepest of the shit.

      It's the urban and suburban dwellers that will REALly suffer.

      I lived in LA forever, and it was insane under the BEST of circumstances!...Doesn't tak More..

  • If you have these, you better be prepared to grow enough for all your neighbors too. Or at least enough to feed a small army to defend your crisis garden.

  • Yeah, not an altogether bad idea. Who knows what our country is in for, and in a time when most Americans rely on food that is transported over long distances, it might be a decent idea to know what to do if that system is ever disrupted even temporarily. But here's the problem, a small number of people will have the intelligence or resources to make it through a chaotic event on their own...but unfortunately they will be preyed upon by the weak and uneducated in our society. That's why stock More..

  • Anyone who is into survival training will tell you that seed storage for food cultivation is absolute. You who make fun of survival tools are the ones who will be looting for food when the shit hits the fan.

    • No shit sherlock...anyone into survival training? REALLY? That is pretty much my point... Shall we run down the list of paranoid delusional personality disorders and socio-pathic characteristics expected there? HINT: If you are planning your 'crisis garden' (and you did not say to yourself "crisis garden? That dude on TV is a fucktard"), you TRULY have a warped view of the world, your country, and your fellow citizens. Best you go live in the mountains now.

  • This company has been out for years and so has the process of storing seeds for the long term. Sounds stupid for most until they actually need it.

  • it's been on for quite a while on many venues ... especially on the eco-terrorist websites of PETA, ELF, ALF, SIERRA CLUB, GrEENIES, etc.

    There are govts that are storing original seed dna in case ....

    are you that ignorant? or just another lying progressive liberal?
