I Fully Support Conservative Mom Holly Fisher Even Though We Have Nothing In Common
Holly Fisher is a self-described conservative Christian and mother of three from West Virginia who has quickly found internet fame after a photo of her wearing a pro-life shirt and holding a Chik-Fil-A cup in front of a Hobby Lobby recently went viral. Her husband is an Army combat infantry vet. Holly and I probably have nothing in common, except we both have a pile of kids, and I doubt she would agree with any of my own personal political views, just as much as I don’t agree with her beliefs. But even though I can’t really get behind her political views, I take issue with the amount of really creepy vitriol she has received since stating her views on the Internet. From Holly’s twitter feed:
And the Facebook page where the picture was posted is just as bad:
Liberty News interviewed Holly about her experience:
I have always been extremely conservative and and passionate about my views. The last few years of the growing hate and intolerance among the â€œtolerantâ€ left has made me want to stand up and speak out. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to show where I stand. I didnâ€™t do it to try to change minds of those who disagree with me, but more so to show like-minded people that theyâ€™re not alone and itâ€™s okay to stand up for what you believe in, even if itâ€™s not popular right now. I want younger Americanâ€™s to know itâ€™s okay to not follow the current liberal pathâ€¦ –
Holly posted another photo on Twitter that was quickly turned into a meme:
So let’s see here, guns, bibles, pro-life, Hobby Lobby and that delicious hater chicken. I don’t have much in common with Holly, but I do know that no human should be subjected to this sort of backlash simply for believing in things that I don’t believe in. It’s just as bad as when people call pro-choice, liberal women “sluts” and “whores” for posting a pic online. I may not believe in Holly’s views, but I believe in her right to express them without receiving rape threats and being called nasty names.
