According to Holly Fisher, she makes liberals’ heads explode. At least, that’s what she claimed when she Twittered her way to internet celebrity with a picture in front of Hobby Lobby; though it was her infamous “guns, bible and flag” picture that launched her to greatest infamy. Mostly because she bore such a striking resemblance to a female international Islamic terrorist known as the “White Widow.” But that didn’t make liberals’ heads explode. However, America’s own Christian-values-loving, Bible-thumping, “Dear God, why did you have to put that brain in that body” Tea Party darling did just release a public confessional that exploded a few heads. With laughter.
Fame has not been easy for Holly, at least to hear her tell it. The girl who started out as the simple wife of an enlisted man, fame-whoring on Twitter as many do, probably wasn’t entirely prepared for the lifestyle that followed success in that endeavor. Indeed, Holly’s guns quickly became something of a pinup for Tea Party fanaticists — and the AR-15 wasn’t bad either. But the paradox of becoming a Christian Purity sex symbol, touring the nation and finding herself in the limelight put a lot of strain on Holly’s marriage — much to the pain of her husband and family.
But at least one guy didn’t seem to mind: Joel Frewa of the Tea Party News Network, now communications director for the actual non-profit Tea Party. Rumors had been going around for some time that Frewa (another Christian values and military enthusiast) had been anointing Holly’s Holy of Holies. Most notably, while celebrating Republican victories on Election Night in 2014 and at a (prepare yourself) Faith & Freedom Conference.
And it gets better. The story was actually broken by Charles C. Johnson of GotNews.com — himself, a screaming right conservative. He had apparently heard reports from the Faith & Freedom conference, and contacted Holly about them before writing up the story. Her initial response:
You know, call us a little bit crazy…but Chuck does have a slightly familiar air. See it? Kind of a “this is what you get for blowing me off for Joel Frewa” sort of vibe? It happens. Know your league, Chuck.
Regardless, Holly knew a bust when she saw one, and admitted the affair 40 minutes later on Facebook. The full text, for the sake of due process, is below. But to spare some reading: “I did it. Tiger Woods Defense. Jesus saves.”
So don’t judge her. As this Tweeter says:
As of right now, this is the only affair with which Holly has been associated. But it must be said, following the Cockroach Law of Infidelity: “For every one time you caught them, there were twenty more you didn’t see.”
For his part, though, Holly’s husband has leaped to her defense, writing angry and threatening messages to anyone who disparage his fair lady love. To Holly, he’s been nothing but supportive of her terrible trials as a celebrity:
@HollyRFisher I am with you always. We crossed this bridge and will walk together now with our heads high. I love you. Matthew 6:14-15
That’s just beautiful. And that’s his decision to make. But let us again remember the Great White Rule of Infidelity: “Once a man-eater, always a man-eater.” Whatever though…it is every man’s to be whipped if he chooses. Maybe forgiving is the best approach in situations like this.
It’s what Jesus would do.
Or maybe he’d stone her to death as an adulteress. We can’t remember. Maybe not. With pure-hearted Christians, it usually is “Let he who is without sin cast the first stones.”
For the rest of us, though…”Let she who lives in a glass house put down the revolver.”
Yes, I know I’m sexist. Sue me. It’s hard being internet famous. Sort of. Whatever. Tiger Woods.
