Holly Hobby Lobby Receiving Death Threats For Facebook Photo, Is This The New War On Women?

death threats for pro life woman

Holly Fisher has become infamous as Holly Hobby Lobby for the Facebook photo she posted that showed her support for the recent Supreme Court decision. Holly posted a photograph of herself standing in front of a Hobby Lobby store while wearing a “pro-life” T-shirt and holding a Chik-fil-a cup.

The only way this combination could have infuriated supporters of the Obamacare birth control mandate even more is if she had slung a gun over her left shoulder. But that did not stop the death threats from pouring in…

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Holly Fisher has already explained why she made the Hobby Lobby photo:

“I have always been extremely conservative and passionate about my views. The last few years of the growing hate and intolerance among the ‘tolerant’ left has made me want to stand up and speak out. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to show where I stand. I didn’t do it to try to change minds of those who disagree with me, but more so to show like-minded people that they’re not alone and it’s okay to stand up for what you believe in, even if it’s not popular right now. I want younger Americans to know it’s okay to not follow the current liberal path…”

She also remarked that the same people who complain about the so-called “war on women” are also the same people who are publicly insulting her all over the internet. But, while insults might be expected on social media, Fisher even says she’s received deaths to herself and her family. For example, one of the worst was from a guy who “told me he would kill me by shoving the cup down my throat.”

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, unfortunately. Other Twitter users have responded to Holly’s account by attacking her presumed religious beliefs, claiming they’d like to get her pregnant just to walk out on her, and other perpetuated the war on women mantra by saying she was a “brainwashed female” who is just an “object to men” who forcing people to believe in an “imaginary man, whose life is written by men in a fictional book.”

If anything, this type of response seems like a new war on women. If the goal is for women to have the perfect freedom to choose what they believe, and which actions they desire, then it would seem logical to support an independent woman like Holly Fisher who has chosen her own path, even if you might disagree with those choices.

    I probably admire Holly Fisher more than any other woman I know right now. As far as the reaction to her photo, when the left wins a court battle and they gloat over it, they expect us conservatives to just suck it up; and for the most part we do. But when THEY lose a battle, look out! They're like a bunch of crying babies who simply cannot stand defeat.

  2. Kearston Marie Miles

    Really? Republicans repealed the ACA 37 times! They are still attempting to repeal roe vs wade, and the list goes on. Doesn't look like you guys suck it up. Not even a little.

    I didn't say we weren't persistent. But I, nor anyone I know, was making death threats to those on the left like what's being made to Holly Fisher for simply speaking her mind and taking a stand.

  5. Gerry J Hopman

    We continue to see the tolerant left the most intolerant. The anti-bullying left the biggest bullies. The anti war on woman left the most brutal to woman, the freedom loving left more eager to remove freedoms. I've been following Holly's twitter account amazed at the haters but sure enjoying her witty responses! As the left tries to shut down debate on any subject we'll continue to see people like Holly stand up with courage giving the left the opportunity to show their true colors. OK lefties, let the name calling begin!

  6. Kearston Marie Miles

    Shut down debate? Please. The right bullys Obama relentlessly, I have very rarely seen a post that criticized the president that didn't include "idiot. muslim, terrorist" it's really sad. The conservative fear mongering and double standards ( I see good ole' Christians calling for obama to be killed, raped, blah blah blah) it's really sad. It's really sad that if hobby lobby was a Muslim company who decided it believed all their female workers should wear hijabs, their would be an OUTRAGE: fueled by the same people who support the hobby lobby decision. You do realize the hobby lobby decision has opened the floodgates to things like this? Perhaps if you derived your political opinions from more than just fox news and facebook memes you would be better informed. What freedoms have the left attempted to remove? With freedom comes great responsibility. I am free if god didn't want me to have the choice to take those birth control methods he would have removed them from earth, if god didn't want me to have the choice to get an abortion I wouldn't have it, maybe it's the wrong choice. But god has left it up to me decide and for him to judge. Who are you or some corporation to take away a right that god has not done so himself? Are you playing god now? Under right wing logic we should take away guns because they can kill people if we take away abortions because they do…. Having the option to buy a gun would make you pro-choice right? You can choose to have a gun, you can choose to do what you want with it. If you choose to take a life with it, you will suffer the consequence am I right?

  7. Gerry J Hopman

    Kearston Marie Miles, lets be more fair in your hijab example. A employer tells it's female employees there are 20 hijabs currently in production. we won't force you to wear any but in case you do want to wear one 16 of the 20 are approved. if you chose to use one of the off limits hijabs you will have to purchase that yourself. sounds fair to me! Second; is Obama constantly harassed and called horrible names? Yes. Just like every president before him. so what. if God didn't want you to take all the birth control options "removed them from the earth'? yea. kinda like all sickness and disease and all things bad huh? You talk of rights. where do these "rights" come from and how do you distinguish between "rights" and "wants"? please give me a example of a "good ole Christian calling for Obama to be killed"?

    The issue with me over this person is that she outright lied about the ACA causing her daughter to lose her current cardiologist and that there was not one offered on the plan WHEN IN FACT THE TRUTH BE TOLD that her husbands employer changed from Cigna to another insurance carrier that did not cover the current physician but DID have others they would cover. Initially I was very empathetic to this, and I still do understand her frustration over the Dr they want not being covered. Holly blamed Obama, and it was really her husbands employer who caused the situation

  9. Kelsey Wittle

    and I absolutely do not agree with anyone threatening her

  10. Kelsey Wittle

    Gerry while I do totally disagree with threats on either side, I have yet to see this lady debate a thing. She also constantly calls anyone who is liberal or not for her thinking names
    Personally I thought the hobby lobby pic was funny I laughed

  11. Kelsey Wittle

    Larry she lied about the reason she lost her Dr for her daughter, her husbands employer chose to change insurance companies

  12. Gerry J Hopman

    She posted a picture and angry liberals went after her! She wittingly mocks them. don't think she claims to be a debater!

  13. Gerry J Hopman

    Did her employer change insurance plans because of Obamcare. I just received a email stating my insurance is changing because "new federal regulations and expanded mandatory benefits have lead to significantly higher costs" If this is their case then Obamacare is at fault and she hasn't lied!

    Gerry J Hopman click on the link in he article fo her blog it will answer your question

  16. Kelsey Wittle

    Gerry this is your post "left tries to shut down debate on any subject " and gerry why wont you look at others articles posted? its alled critical thinking and while I may not have the same views, I certainly do look at everything to make an informed decision have a great day

  17. Kelsey Wittle

    Gerry J Hopman and as much as she mocks the she calls people names also, read them.

  18. Kelsey Wittle

    Kearston Marie Miles Gerry doesnt want to see or hear any thing different than what he has been told, and actually an article related to this also said that the marines atty told him to NOT have political intervention as it could hurt more than help him.

  19. Cindy Gray

    Kelsey Wittle I agree with you Kelsey. Nobody should threaten Holly. But I'm not sure I really believe her frankly. Maybe it's true, who knows.

    What I DO know is Holly went out of her way, I mean she pushed hard to present a highly controversial "package" of herself — deliberately to INFLAME.

    She even said it in her earliest posts the THIS would make "Liberals Heads Explode"

    Bottom Line: Everything Holly is doing, she is doing it for ATTENTION. For her 15 Minutes of Fame — She is a Loser.

  20. Kelsey Wittle

    Kearston Marie Miles they have tried to repeal it over 48 times :-)

  21. Cindy Gray

    Gerry J Hopman You want to call consumer protections "expanded benefits"? Fine. But the fact is the mandatory benefits insurance companies now MUST provide are benefits most people believed they already HAD, but then found out they had to pay out of pocket.

    This was typical of insurance companies abuses. And consumers found out the HARD WAY. And don't kid yourself by thinking these "expanded benefits" are somehow a burden on the insurance companies. It's making sure they provide "minimum benefits" that consumers EXPECT and rely on for coverage. Nothing out of the ordinary.

  22. Cindy Gray

    And you do know that insurance companies change policies every single day and have for a hundred years. LONG BEFORE Obamacare.

    And they still do — all on their own.

    what you all are missing is the court ruled on a law (RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION) the Demarcates pushed threw the house and senate and signed by demarcate (Clinton)

  24. Ed Vallieres

    Holly stay the course very proud of you my friends in texas love you for standing for our country and freedoms

  25. Ray Marotta

    Larry Ebaugh Death threats from the liberal left are nothing to fear. Most liberal males spot their panties at the thought of violence…

  26. Kelsey Wittle

    You might want to re read that also because 19 states may just not have to follow the courts decision as they opted out of it, Oregon has already started

  27. Kevin M. Koop

    Hey Holly you would be welcome in Colorado Springs any day! THE ONLY GOOD LIBERALS /TERRORISTS WITHIN ARE FINALLY WORKING FOR ONCE AS THEY ARE PUSHING UP DAISIES! Yes it's a warning for all lazy candy ass worthless liberals! AMERICA WOULD BETTER OFF IF ALL LIBERALS ABORTED THEIR BABIES SO THE FUTURE OF LIBERTY WOULD LIVE ON BECAUSE UNFORTUNATELY YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!

  28. Thomas Daniels

    Yep Liberal state does not have to follow federal ruling I will point out also a state that had many voter fraud cases. But my point is the law you are so against was written pushed threw a controlled house and senate and signed by a democrat. So you as a true blue Liberal have a problem with this law. Typical Liberal do as I say but it should not apply to me.

  29. Kelsey Wittle

    Thomas get little educated and read about why those states may not fall under it, the chose to have thier own RFRA laws . and its so funny how you are citing "had many voter fraud cases" really now, mmmm that is funny because Oregon has 33 cases of" alleged"" election fraud since 2000 vs The nation has 2,068 cases of "alleged" election fraud since 2000 google yourself on how many have been proven have a great day

  30. Thomas Daniels

    Kevin I may not agree with Kelsey political views but your statement are very inappropriate. Our country is based on freedom of speech which you do have but threating people and stating killing babies is very rude and disrespectful of you fellow human being.
