As part of the ongoing drama about the photos of the Blessed Little Property and Garden Shed that were posted on Facebook this week, Nicole and her supporters are blathering on about how illegal and stalky it is.
Most interesting to me is how Nicole spins it.
First, what “group”? What is she talking about?
Second, “something bad”? What does that mean? Does that mean that if one of her family members has a burst appendix, it’s my fault? Or the photographer’s fault?
Third, “harassment is being documented.” That’s nice.
Fourth, “intimidating children”? What children? There are no children in either of those photos. There aren’t even any animals.
The point, as I’ve said before, that I got from those photos was that the Blessed Little Garden Shed located in the Blessed Little Wilderness is not actually in wilderness at all, but is sitting right on the road. My guess is not much more than 30 or 40 feet from the road.
But no matter. Nicole puts this little rant up on her “homestead” Facebook page so she can get everyone to say, “Oh, how terrible.”
I want to make something really clear here. First, I have no idea who took the two photos. I don’t want to know, so don’t message me and tell me. I don’t care. Second, I would not have done it, nor would I have posted those photos. I wouldn’t because I would be a wee bit creeped out if somebody did that to me.
I do understand that feelings run a little high with all this, most especially because the supporter pages over the months have posted photos of critics’ houses, and businesses, and private information of all kinds, and not once—not one single time has Nicole ever said, “Gee, I think that’s probably not a good idea.”
Nicole instead has posted shit like this:
So, you know, don’t come playing the martyr to me. I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy for anyone who would say such a thing about anyone.
And all that aside, we come to this.
Please notice that every one of these photos includes at least some portion of someone’s building, house, or barn.
By now, you’ve figured out that Nicole took every one of these. She pulled over on the side of the road and took a picture.
And before you say, “Oh, those are just empty barns,” maybe they aren’t. Maybe somebody is living off-grid there in the Blessed Little Barn. How would we know? What they are not, of course, is photos of the Blessed Little Homestead, even though her ridiculous watermark thing tends to imply that they are.
Slightly different view of the same farm as above. Nicole is fond of sunsets it seems.
No, this is not the entrance to the Blessed Little Property.
What she’s done here is not illegal or wrong or bad or anything. She took photos from the road, from a public space. As long as you don’t use a zoom lens and try to photograph a private area (for instance, trying to photograph at night through a lighted window), you’re on solid legal ground. Just ask Google.
But you see, this isn’t illegal either.
Do you see any children? Any animals? Anything personal? See how blurry it is? The photographer didn’t stop. In fact, I bet the photographer was the driver and just stuck a phone out of the window and snapped.
The mowed portion in the foreground is the neighbor’s field. That’s how “wildernessy” it is.
Maybe, just maybe, Nicole, if you didn’t threaten other people by encouraging doxxing and posting of photos of houses and if you’d stop accusing people of being addicted to drugs with zero evidence to back it up and if you didn’t mock them because they experienced tragedy—well, maybe you wouldn’t experience ass-biting.
Karma is a bitch.
Update (because hypocrisy and Nicole seem to be indistinguishable)
It would seem that taking pictures of “private property”, while on “public property”, isn’t such a foreign and difficult concept for her when it suits her agenda. She even considered taking a picture of the woman to drive her point home.
