This was a little disconcerting, I admit. What in the world is Nicole trying to convey here, if anything at all?
I didn’t even know that it was possible to actually function in society (well, one can argue that the Nauglers are not achieving that, I know) and simultaneously believe that the earth is flat.
I went to the Facebook page linked here and decided that half those people had to be POEs.
Well, I decided wrong, apparently.
If that meme puzzled you like it did me, you need to go here and listen.
It’s a bit longer than 12 minutes, and there’s a transcript there as well, so you can read it if you like. The transcript has nice linkies you can follow.
All of it made more sense to me (“sense” here is a very relative term, since none of this makes any real sense) after I listened to Brian’s take on it.
Do take note of the heavy anti-Semitic tone of all this. The Nauglers do seem to hang around and be supported by some of the fringiest fringies out there.
Nicole never met a conspiracy theory she didn’t like. Joe is right now carrying on about how they have some sort of federal investigation thing going on where they, the intrepid Nauglers, are going to expose the “corruption” in the Breck County government.
Because nothing is ever their fault, and it’s always somebody else’s fault (it’s even the baby’s fault for finding a bug and causing Nicole to forget to turn the car off, thus draining the battery), conspiracy theories are very handy things.
Anyway, whether or not Nicole Naugler actually believes the earth is flat is almost irrelevant. She believes firmly that vaccinations are bad, and that’s pretty close to the same thing.
And there are 11 children that get no input whatever from any other sources than those they are pointed to by Joe and Nicole Naugler. That’s scary.
