What are you doing wrong? You are trying to run docker on FreeBSD. Docker
is a containerization technology built for Linux. It uses LXC (which is
Linux Containers) for older Kernels or docker specific bits which are now
part of the modern Linux kernel 3.10+. Docker is basically FreeBSD Jails,
with a few more features and a lot more security issues. Stay away from
docker for a while till they fix all the security issues in it or look at
Rocket from the CoreOS team.

I have not looked into Discourse, but any application that requires Docker
is not worth using at this point. I am sure there must be a way to install
it without using Docker. You can get hints of how someone gets apps working
inside a Docker container by looking at the DockerFile if you go looking at
https://registry.hub.docker.com. This is a build file for a containers. If
you just cannot get Discourse working on FreeBSD, then by all means switch
to a Linux install instead. Make sure it is not centos as it will not have
the update Kernel drivers for better Docker support.
