Yea I’ve read this comment so many times and I just don’t see how the first part leads to the second part at all.

I've read it once and stopped stone cold because I don't know what a NIMBY is and looking it up on my phone is a hassle right now

"Not In My Back Yard"

as wikipedia describes it : "a pejorative characterization of opposition by residents to a proposed development in their local area"

mostly it seems to be when middle-class people want, say, a new runway built but don't want their houses to be in the flyover zone, or demand sustainable power but don't wand wind turbines in sight of their gardens.
