Douche of the Week: Nicole Frazier

Updated: October 20, 2012

By RU Contributor Jack Mandaville

I hopped on to ThisAin’tHell the other day and clicked on a link that took me to an article in The Rocky Mountain Collegian—an online publication for Colorado State University.

Sweet baby Jesus in a tuxedo suit… I can’t even begin to find the words to explain the vomit-inducing article I read. The simple fact that I managed to make it through the entire thing was a miraculous feat within itself, so please bear with me as I try to convey the gist of what I witnessed.

Alright, first off, I was initially a little reluctant to go after a young student who wrote an airy-fairy op-ed for a shitty university paper. Name any school in America, these kids aren’t exactly Bob Woodward-caliber journalists.

I’m barely clinging on to my twenties here. A part of me felt like angrily responding to a young lady would be in poor taste. Then I remembered what I was doing at her age—on my third deployment—and I realized that this broad should be able to handle a little constructive criticism.

Her name is Nicole Frazier. She’s an English and Spanish major—meaning she’s a perfect candidate for OWS membership. A self-professed liberal, Nicole recently did an op-ed titled “Why we shouldn’t just have military discounts.”

STRIKE ONE!

Thanks a lot, Nicole. You just gave a black eye to a shit-ton of liberals who don’t share the same anti-troop sentiments as you. You need to reevaluate what it means to be a liberal. You betta ch-ch-check yo’ self before you riggiddy wreck yo’ self!

In Ms. Frazier’s demented, poorly conceived article she argues that US military personnel should not be the only ones in America receiving discounts from businesses because of the nature of their work (warfare) and the fact that they’re not the only ones “serving” our nation.

Here, her words:

“Businesses are stratifying our society (further than it already is), with military discounts by putting the group of individuals who serve in the military at the cusp, based on what I deem to be irrelevant factors, such as the riskiness of the job, annual pay and respect.”

STRIKE TWO, MISSY!

Irrelevant factors? Are you fucking kidding me? Are you angry because these businesses recognize the fact that we’ve lost 4,486 US Servicemembers in Iraq and 2,140 US Servicemembers in Afghanistan since the beginning of the Global War on Terrorism in 2001? Is it the 32,223 wounded in Iraq and the 17,674 wounded in Afghanistan that bothers you? What about the multiple deployments our military personnel are subjected to, the lengthy amount of time they spend away from their loved ones, or the long-term health issues they’ll face? Them receiving a 10% discount at Home Depot really fuckin’ troubles you that much?

More of Nicole’s vast wisdom:

“In other words, by not paying homage to other professionals in this country who do equally valid work, we create a dangerous hierarchy in our system that treats people as if they are more deserving of discounts than another who, due to medical reasons, couldn’t enlist or was more passionate about serving their country as a counselor at the public middle school.”

STEEERIKE THREE! You’re outta here, honey!

What kind of hierarchy are you talking about? My buddy, Mike—a former Marine (that I proudly served with) and police officer—never pays for his dry-cleaning or car washes because of his law enforcement job. What about educators? Yeah, honey, the overwhelming majority of American retailers provide teacher discounts, too. Firefighters? They’re reimbursed for their sacrifices by the throngs of pussy thrown at them on a daily basis. And, Nicole, need I remind you that people in your position (students) are offered a plethora of discounts, as well? Trust me, I know—within a few months, I went from using my military ID for theater discounts to using my student ID.

Next thing you know, Nicole will be telling us that the geriatrics who hang out at Denny’s at six in the morning don’t deserve their senior discount—you know, because recognizing the fact that some Americans are capable of making it to 55 is a direct insult to all the sacrifices college students make.

One last gem from Ms. Frazier:

“Who receives discounts should not be determined by the riskiness of the job. If you can’t put a price on a life, then you can’t put discounts on it either.”

The United States government has put a price on the lives of those who serve. It’s called the SGLI… and it covers up to $400,000 for the life of a servicemember who makes the ultimate sacrifice. And you know what, Nicole? That $400,000 dollars will never be enough. It will never be enough to the Gold Star families who have received it and it will never make up for the sacrifices that every single one of our servicemen and women have made.

The majority of these discounts are 10% or less. What kind of self-entitled lowlife gets pissed off or jealous about this kind of stuff? I’ll tell you who: DOUCHEBAGS!

Ms. Frazier, what you wrote is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent article were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on your campus is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Young lady, you’re now exiled to Douchebagistan. While there, you will be forced to utilize your English and Spanish degrees by waiting tables for large crowds of returning US military members looking to use their much deserved restaurant discounts.

    I’ve been out for three years now. Never once have I gotten a discount for military service. Even when I was in I can’t recall one instance clearly where I got a discount. And yet as an OSU student I’ve gotten discounts on insurance, rent, movie tickets, food, supplies for work (I’m a broke-ass illustrator), and drinks at a fucking bar. Nine years of the Army: no discount. Three years as a Buckeye: shit-tons of discounts.

    So basically if this cunt got her way and military discounts were done away with, well, I wouldn’t notice at all. The only military thing I get is free food on Veteran’s Day, and I make it my mission to get a years worth of free shit on that day.

    Awww, c’mon everyone……It is risky out there delivering pizza’s to frat houses. Dodging IED’s on campus…..Getting an education so you can take that corporate job and then jack prices by 10% because you didn’t get your bonus after college……oh wait…..she IS a Douchebag…..The discount usually amounts to saving just a little over sales tax. I am a cop and a reservist. I enjoy getting a discount and make it a point to thank the clerk. I appreciate the discount knowing that it is the BUSINESS’s decision to give a discount to whomever THEY want to. So the snotty little, liberal bitch can just suck it. Ask mommy and daddy to up your allowance or join up, serve and get your own discount douchewad. I have so much more to rant, but I will end it here! I need to go get my Dunkin Donuts coffee (and discount)……..bitch

    I’ve been in the military for 13 years and I hardly ever go outta my way to ask for a military discount. Because its almost a slap in the face for some of the discounts offered. My wife always tells me to ask for military discount when ever we go places, she always says you’ve earned it so use it. Like going to the movies, the discount at the theater we go to is .50 cents. Woohoo, I am so glad I saved .50 cents to watch a movie with my wife! J/K, really!? .50cents?! Listen I will happily escort this bitch to the hell she deserves. I’ve made many sacrifices and lost many friends so that she can use the rights me and fellow soldiers fight for everyday!

    First of all, is this her money? Is she a major stockholder in any of these companies? I would guess not. My fellow Vietnam Vets and I are happy to see this respect being shown to the troops today. Maybe if she looked at the way military/vets were treated in the past she would see that this is just payback by the civilian population (I still don’t trust them) who are collectively embarrassed by the past.

    I served for 24 years and prepped for the Fulda Gap War Games that never happened. Being Reserve/Texas National Guard, my units were not called to combat. Sort of all dressed up and no where to go.

    I’ve never asked for a military discount in that I feel that others are far more deserving than I — Wounded Warriors, CIB holders, etc. The only time I get one is if the clerk notices my retired military I.D. card.

    I also taught high school for 16 years and I never received or was offered a teacher discount.

    I’m 62 years and qualify for a Senior’s Discount in many places. That one I take, but I bet Ms Douche of the week uses her Student Discount much more than I use my Military or Senior Discount and she’s contributed little or nothing to the security of the advancement of the Republic.

    That said, I’ll continue to protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Even snarky clueless skulls full of mush.

    I didn’t join the Navy to get discounts. I joined to serve my country (which I did for 24 years). Companies give discounts to say thank you to the military and support our troops. Maybe Ms. Frazier does not believe in ‘thank yous’. I don’t ask for discounts but if they are offered I accept graciously.

    Another whiny, self-entitled college student who probably gets either Pell grants or her mommy and daddy pay for her to go and she’s never done a day of hard work in her whole life. This country and my college is filled with them and they should all go with her. I think your Douchebagistan prediction may actually come true due to her shitty karma and it will be exactly what she deserves for her idiotic thought process. I’ll bet my 10% Home Depot discount on it that I use maybe twice a year for fucking light bulbs.

    Michael I am so very proud of you. As you know I spent twenty plus years in the service of my country and I was very proud to be the first in my family to have made this decision. I have seen times when the military personnel and veterans were looked upon with disgust and many attempts to exclude them from the mainstream of life were made. When I enrolled in college, after twenty years of active military service – my very first class – I was greeted by a piss bag instructor who informed me that since I was enrolled as a veteran, I may as well transfer now because no previous veteran had received a passing grade in one of his classes.

    Keep up the good work, we can’t do it all by our selves but there is power in numbers and the attitude of the general public is improving.

    Obviously this brain-trust has yet to experience the “Real World” outside of her rose tinted glasses in the safety of her little classroom. Wake up sweetheart. Enjoy your little freedom of the press and freedom of speech that we paid for. I’m terribly sorry that after having deployed to the sandbox and continuing to serve in another capacity that a few grateful merchants take it upon themselves to comp me a cup of coffee once in awhile. Perhaps, with your logic princess they should also stop saying “Thanks for serving” since they are obviously not paying homage to college pukes by thanking them for doing nothing but wasting time writing ungrateful and treasonous rot and spreading it around to other like-minded ass-monkeys. You disgust me. I volunteer to push her off the ramp of the C-130 as it flies over Douchebagistan so we don’t have to waste time landing…

    They have closed the comment section on the website, and there is a new editorial on there now to object to all the “vile and crude” responses there have been to Nicole’s vile, crude and thoughtless article. Here’s my response

    Businesses like Apple and Disney appropriately provide discounts to our servicemembers and veterans in recognition of the unique nature of their service. It is not our fears or our hubris – please look these up in the dictionary so you understand those words – that cause us to rightly hold those who fight for us in such high esteem. Unlike teachers, nurses, basketball players, rap stars and other purported “heros”, military service involves the tangible risk of death, dismemberment, disfigurement, and disability. Your assertion that other professions involving no such risk be rolled into the definition of hero proposes to construct an almost obscene moral equivalence between those whose families will visit them in the hospital, or BURY them, and those with no such concerns. I could go on for ten pages and use more words you wouldn’t understand to deconstruct your grotesquely flawed logic, but I doubt an ignorant spoiled brat like you would understand any of it.

    The crazy part is that I Sua Sponte’d and looked for a profile for her just so I could try to see if maybe she lost a bet or uses huge amounts of drugs. On the CSU directory website it automatically gives her phone # and home address. Someone should let her know that she should probably take those down……….RLTW

    When I served in the 80s, no one ever thought about giving a military discount unless you were in a military town. I’ve never asked for a discount as I feel the folks serving today are for sure putting their asses on the line and deserve all the breaks and honors.

    wow, and wow again. After reading her “article” I was in abit of a laugh. Congrats, you caught me. I joined the Army and served 14 years so I can get a free meal on Veteran’s Day (when im not working) and so I can get 10% off at a few stores. I mean, I know I could have made tons more and not needed the discounts if I picked another job, but to validate my life, I needed those discounts. (Sarcasm, just in case it wasn’t obvious) I loved the responses below the article, and then seen on the side, there was someone else responding to the article. As the link is already posted, I wont post again. I figured it might back her up, or at least be slightly better written, since the actual English we learned in school was lacking the first one. I was blown away by the 2nd story. Lauren Stieritz was the writer, and it was much better written. It actually looked like someone took the time to research, ask others to proofread, and even cracked a smile at what she had written. Well, at least until I seen the “Final Response”. Lets just give you guys a break and say, the entire time, she talked about her cat. I honestly have NO idea what the heck that has to do with rebuttal on her story. If this was a debate and the first article was weak like that, and the other side wrote like it did, and then the first side talked about their cat after, I would seriously reconsider ANYTHING i had in common with the first side. Including the fact that we both breath oxygen. Im thinking I was wrong that we both do. There is no way. Anyway, here is the link, and sorry about the story.

      It’s mind boggling. Basically what I got from her rebuttal was that her first article got the sheep-dogs barking a lot louder than expected, she got butt hurt, and instead of learning from her mistakes, or providing a structured counter-point, she stood by her original dross and instead wasted her time talking about her pussy. And she wonders why we still keep trollin…

    Well . . . as a retail employee (8 years), mother of a Soldier, and non-traditional college student, I totally agree. I have worked two jobs for 8 years with two goals. I wanted to graduate with honors and WITHOUT any student loans. It has not been easy. I should have my degree in December if I can survive another Black Friday and retail holiday season!!

    As a non-traditional student, I have seen too many young people who are totally clueless. A MSG who teaches in our ROTC program and I have wonderful chats about “kids” these days!!

    As a retail worker, I love every one of the hard-working college kids who are my co-workers! They renew my faith in the next generation. I work EVERY Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with them and tell them they are my nieces and nephews. I bake for them every weekend, listen, encourage, and support them. I see them offer great customer service, never hesitate to help, show respect, and keep smiling.

    Having visited Army bases with my Soldier, I can pick out a Warrior with some accuracy. They have a look, maturity, and discipline that I recognize. If I spot anyone who is a Warrior anywhere in the store, I approach them and inquire about their service. First, I thank them for serving. Second, I make sure they know they will receive a 15 percent discount when they show their ID. If they don’t have an ID, I tell them to check out with me or I write a note to the cashier to make sure they get our discount. I am NOT a manager (I have been focusing on my college classes.), but I know for certain that I am empowered to offer that discount for our military. (The managers love me, always offer me extra shifts, and I genuinely love all my coworkers. I tease them saying “you can’t buy what I bring to this job.”)

    I, too, have used my college ID for countless discounts. My AARP card has also saved my lots of money. I joke that I’ll get my diploma and death certificate, but I hope it’s not in alphabetical order.

    I pray for our Troops, every night–especially Chaplains. For my required internship, I am starting a Blue Star Moms chapter in my community. My father and all my uncles were in WWII and represented almost every branch of the military. I regularly send packages to my Adopt-A-Soldier friend who I will never meet.

    I always enjoy your blog. God bless you and all your readers for your service.
    I need to get some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread in the oven for the Vet Center on campus and get some studying done.

    Thanks for listening!!!!!!

    Is there a “douche of the week … Welcome to douchebagistan” T-Shirt??? If not… i think she deserves two. And im buying one for her in xxl , the size of her mouth.
    One thing she fails to realize most business’ have prior sevice working as key leaders. And most vets understand our position.
    As a student and a veteran, i walk into every store and asing if the have a military discount, then a student discount, then if the have a discount for where i work. Then ill say well im over 65 (w/ my young self) have a sr. Discount. What about an employee. Yes i even do this at the PX.
    Most store discount give you the item just above list price. Thats why its never over 10-15 percent. Thats there markup.

    My local Walgreens gives me 5% off on Wednesdays. The first time I was offered that I thought “Fuck yeah, I knew all those months in that shitty middle eastern gulag cesspool would pay off someday!” But now Ms Frazier has put the whole thing in perspective for me. I will no longer be a part of further stratifying our great nation. During my next Wednsday shopping spree for discount Irish Spring and brown label beer, I’m going to stand up and say “No, please give my 12 cent discount to that poor misunderstood crack head begging for change and breaking into unlocked cars in the parking lot. He deserves it as much as anybody and shouldn’t be cut out of the grand redistribution of my money. Thanks Nicole and remember to get out and vote this November.

    I would like to thank many of the business that reach out and thank the military by even offering a discount. Sometimes a small thank you is sincere enough and sometimes all they can afford and still keep afloat. Kids like Nicloe don’t know how it feels to come home and see the joy in your kids eyes, and how they grow while you’ve been gone. They live a sheltered lives and brains sucked out and poured back in by Academia telling them how evil the war mongering the Military members are that the article really didn’t surprise me as disappoint me. A little angry maybe but sad that kids and people still think this way. And remember, we serve and still serve to give them the right…a protected right to say it. Tahnks to all my brothers and sisters who have served…and those still serving. God Bless
