The people who dislike this show are kind of right. You can't have it both ways...
You can't spend your whole life being an edgy reactionary, only to then make what is essentially a neopuritan manifesto.
You can't have a setting which is comically cynical, and then go on to critique nihilist ideology.
You can't have your entire brand be about appealing to Internet shut-ins, and then directly insult them.
As funny as Smiling Friends is, I totally disagree with its messaging.
