Poor Nicole. She’s being attacked. And it’s all about the “freedom of the individual.” She’s just an easy target. It’s not personal.
“Their posts” show that.
Who, exactly, is “they”? Am I “they”? I bet I am.
So, it’s about my posts “promoting statism.”
Let’s talk about that a bit. I am a liberal Democrat. I supported Bernie Sanders in the Kentucky Democratic primary, going to a great deal of trouble to vote absentee because we were in Denmark on election day. I suppose that means I “promote statism,” according to Nicole.
Well, what about Nicole’s numerous (and I mean really numerous) posts bashing the police? What about her numerous posts denigrating the voting process entirely? Isn’t it her right to post shit like that if she wishes? I’m not trying to stop her doing so, even though I see her as promoting anarchy and I think she’s wrong.
What about the “freedom of the individual” that she talks about so much? Aren’t I an individual? Don’t I get some of that freedom too?
And posts “degrading” anti-vaxxers.
I don’t do much of that, but yeah, anti-vaxxers are ignorant anti-science lunatics. Sue me. They simply are. They put other people at risk because of their stupid, poorly informed insanity.
And while we’re at it, what about all of Nicole’s posts “degrading” people who choose to circumcise their sons?
And posts about “hating men.”
WTF? I like men. I have no idea what she is talking about. I despise her husband, but he’s just one inferior, lazy, good-for-nothing person who happens to be male.
And posts about “hating Christians.”
This is so stupid it makes my eyes water. First off, Nicole would adopt whatever religion she thought would give her the most money. She would become an atheist tomorrow if she thought we’d GoFundHer. (We won’t, so she won’t.)
I post negative stuff about religion, often about Christianity, because I think it’s a sham. It’s sort of like Nicole posting her libertarian stuff. She thinks government is a sham, so she posts shit saying so. I fail to see the difference.
“Hating free thinkers.”
Um, I am a free thinker. Free thinkers actually read articles before sharing them. Free thinkers check memes for accuracy. Free thinkers accept science when the evidence is overwhelming. Nicole is not any sort of thinker, free or otherwise.
“They oppose homeschooling and especially unschooling.”
I home schooled. I have mixed feelings about it. It worked fine for us, in our particular situation. I don’t put a blanket condemnation on it. Neither do I consider it the panacea and creater-of-all-that-is-good in education.
The Nauglers aren’t homeschooling, nor are they “unschooling.” Their children are simply not being educated at all. They are basically feral. This is where my objection lies. I, as a member of their community, have a right to demand that their children (who will look to me to support them when they cannot support themselves and who will have the right to vote in elections and run for public office and do all sorts of things that directly affect me) be at least minimally educated. Sorry if that bothers her. Her uneducated children bother me.
“They oppose the tiny house off grid lifestyle.”
No, I don’t. The Nauglers don’t have a tiny house. They have a garden shed, which is less than a year old and already being torn to shreds. Off grid is fine. Dumping raw sewage is not.
“They want us to conform. . .”
I want you to clean up your sewage, Nicole. I want you to quit conning people out of money by pretending to be something you are not. I want you to educate your children. I want you to provide them with decent housing.
Did you get some bad news and that’s why you’re all pissy and whining today? Because you are, in fact, on the losing team here.
