If you listened to those poison pens, they'd probably say they were happy. All the while, the truly happy would be too busy enjoying life to find anything wrong or find the time to write about it.

Policeman's wife



Quote:

Her Twitter bio describes herself as a: "Happy wife. Homeschool mom. Proud police supporter. Paleoconservative. I block beta males & shrieking Godless harridans as matter of course." Her positions - as vociferously spelled out on Twitter - are mostly consistent with the culturally conservative American right. She defends gun ownership and the police, and criticises President Obama, abortion and the Black Lives Matter movement. Many of her tweets use blunt or vulgar language.

Among her more extreme messages are ones which call people "ferals" and a series of missives that called for the hanging of the mother of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was shot by police in Cleveland while playing with a toy gun.



One of the problems with social media is that is gives people with extreme views a platform. In a face-to-face community they would be surrounded by an oppositional viewpoint and would, perhaps, say less. This woman is an example of what happens on social media. She is followed by around 18,000 - probably all from areas far away from her - who spur her on to think that her rantings have merit.

America - land of the free and home of the toxic.


As an aside, do "happy" people make poisonous comments online?


I wonder why she wants to "homeschool".
