Somehow, Holly Fisher (or, if you prefer, Holly Hobby Lobby or Jihad Barbie) still doesn’t quite get why those of us who aren’t Christofascist ammosexuals with a penchant for threatening civil war see any similarity between her–a Christian extremist who feels that holding up an assault rifle and a holy book in front of her flag–and a certain Muslim terrorist who posed the exact same way with an assault rifle and her holy book in front of her flag.
Holly has been making headlines with her claims that her poorly reviewed “award-winning” doctor was ripped away from her by the evil socialist dictator Barry Soetoro–erm, Barack Obama, leading to criticism over her easily dispelled claims–and, of course, her idiotic attempt to “make liberal heads explode.”
Holly claimed in a recent Facebook post that anyone who feels that one form of extremism is the same as another lives in his or her parents’ basement eating Cheetos. She said that the photos look similar, but one represents freedom while the other represents “anything but freedom.” Of course, the other woman in the above comparison would say the exact same thing.
” If you believe these pictures are in any way similar, YOU are what’s wrong with America and with the world. I, some nobody stay at home mom in small town WV, am not the problem. I haven’t said this yet, but I am now fed up enough to do so: If there were more people like me and less people who spread around nonsense illustrating that a freedom-loving, American Christian mom is anything like an actual terrorist, the world would be a much better place and America would not be on the road to socialism.” she wrote.
Ironically, Holly purports to support freedom while simultaneously supporting a company’s right to deny women coverage for basic health care options because the business’s (which is a person) religion is against it–still somehow missing that the woman on the right also supports the denial of rights and privileges for women for the very same reason.
Holly’s entire reasoning is based in the same line of thinking that allows racists to believe they are not racist. As long as she can somehow justify her moronic beliefs, she is not anything like the woman on the right. The only differences, however, are skin color, choice of holy book, preferred killing tool, and which flag before which they choose to stand. They do, however, worship the same god. Both value the words of Jesus, who is heavily mentioned in the Quran–and both believe that they are somehow a symbol of freedom.
“You’re embarrassing,” Holly concludes. You know what Holly? Most of us feel the same about you.
Of course, what would one expect from someone who actually thinks like this?
