(congrats, Colonel-Knight-Rider, you discovered the debate tactic of pointing your finger and screeching No You!)

Following my most recent journal, one of Niam's friends, who's known as ryu238 on DA and whom I will hereafter refer to as "Jake" because of the real name he posted on his DA profile, was quick to spam me with anti-Trump articles from liberally biased sources, including the ever-dubious Reddit, hoping he could gain a new convert because of that. These instances, of course, aren't the first time someone from Niam's niche collective of degrading, condescending, and insulting leftists have actively tried to turn me to turn against Trump and make me question the conservative values I was raised with, thinking that doing so will somehow make me "better." Too bad I don't kowtow to people who obsessively bully me and my friends. Last time I checked, the Internet is not a police state, and they are not in charge.


So, what's my realization based on all this? Simple: Niam, Jake, and other regular users of the anti-conservative Website Fundies Say The Darndest Things (I would've sooner said anti-extremist conservative before learning they like taunting moderates just as much) are what they fear most: the nonbeliever equivalents of religious fundamentalists! Like religious fundamentalists (which I know I'm not—I don't read Genesis literally), they regularly heckle anyone who doesn't share their views in any way, and they emotionally blackmail people into feeling guilty for having views different from them by framing them for all kinds of bigotry they know they didn't commit. On top of that, they spam people like me with articles supporting their views, thinking that anyone who reads them will immediately accept them as fact and change their views accordingly (their version of Biblical literalism sans Bible).

In that sense, the title of the site refers to themselves more than it does their quoting targets. Ironic, isn’t it?
