After being unable to mount a logical argument on HB2, one Robert Andrew Payne decided to employ a rather weak attempt to intimidate me by doxing my family.
I’ve seen this movie before. It doesn’t end well.
Mr. Payne’s attempt at intimidation was as feeble as his arguments, posting my husband’s Facebook profile picture on Facebook and hilariously claiming it was representative of our family ‘values’.

Read the whole thread. He doubles down. It’s amusing.
If you have trouble understanding Payne’s point, the image is My Little Pony’s Applejack on a Confederate flag background.
Get it, Confederate flag?
We must be racists! It couldn’t be an ironic, pot stirring image. No, one profile pic means we’re racists.
I love it when the Left assumes. Schadenfreudelicious!
Yes, an ironic image of a children’s show (which is oddly beloved by millions of grown men) on a polarizing background totally sums up my entire family and their values.
That was sarcasm, people. See, I need to point out that’s sarcasm because of humorless, captain literal stalkers like Mr. Payne.
Turnabout is fair play.
Payne thinks he’s Jesus? Was that before or after he was arrested in 2012 for trespass and resisting arrest at a protest of the UNC Board of Governors? Maybe it’s the company he keeps. Doxxers travel in pairs?
Payne’s LinkedIn touts him as the “President of Active Biotech”, of which the Secretary of State has no record of and the address is occupied by other businesses. The website for that company puts it in Sweden and no, Payne is not listed in their executive team nor is his name anywhere on their website.
Was that fun, Mr. Payne? Someone ticking off a list of your public digital footprint? No?
Another head-shaking moment came when he asked me why my sons would be in a bathroom with me. Hi, they are little kids? Kinda need help?
Mr. Payne either likely has no children, or he wouldn’t have asked that question or he was trying to make me nervous he was referencing my children. Either way, he’s barking up the wrong tree. Going after my family (or anyone else’s for that matter) is a disgusting intimidation tactic of a small and cowardly mind.
Payne hasn’t been the only one attacking me instead of making an actual argument.
I’ve compiled a list of hate tweets over HB 2. Enjoy the tolerance.
UPDATE March 2019
I revisited this post after hearing Payne had died of a heart attack and many of the links are now not working, such as the Twitter posts. After I filed several reports against Payne, Twitter support forced him to take down the tweets in which he attacked me and my family and of which he sent while literally sitting in a car outside my home. I have copies of the tweets, but I will not be adding them to this post.
