'Holly Hobby Lobby' Ups The Ante In The War On Women

Robert Jonathan

Holly Fisher (using the provocative Twitter handle "Holly Hobby Lobby") created an uproar on social media with what is being called a "hat trick."

If the hockey reference doesn't apply, perhaps triple play or trifecta might.

That is, while wearing a pro-life T-shirt, she posed in front of a Hobby Lobby store holding a Chick-fil-A drinking cup. In so doing, Fisher might have wound up on the receiving end of the so-called war on women.

The image went viral, prompting opponents of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case to post offensive responses and apparently even threats against her. The intolerant response was similar to what generally happens when actress Stacey Dash sends out any tweets that depart from the conventional Hollywood progressive orthodoxy.

With regard to this social media outcry, tweet aggregator Twitchy observed, "Fisher on Thursday was again the subject of a torrent of hate tweets and Facebook posts. Her thought crime? Making liberal heads explode by tweeting a picture of herself wearing a pro-life T-shirt and enjoying a drink from Chick-fil-A while standing in the parking lot of a Hobby Lobby."

As The Inquisitr previously explained, but what a lot of the Big Media has avoided mentioning, the Christian family that owns the Hobby Lobby chain already covers 16 out of the 20 forms of contraception mandated by Obamacare, a.k.a. Affordable Care Act. In fact, the company covered contraception long before the Affordable Care Act mandated that it had to. For religious reasons, ownership drew the line at the so-called morning-after pill, however.

In ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby, the Supreme Court applied the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed Congress overwhelmingly and which was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, a liberal Democrat, in 1993. Clinton also signed the Defense of Marriage Act, which banned gay marriage.

Many Americans with mixed emotions on sensitive, complicated matters such as sexuality and family planning likely prefer that these issues be handled privately rather than on the public stage with lawyers and government bureaucrats getting involved.

A Second Amendment supporting mother of three and the wife of a military combat veteran, Fisher previously stirred up the liberal precincts on social media when she claimed that Obamacare caused her family to lose access to her baby's pediatric cardiologist.

Fisher told Eric Odom of Liberty News, who posted her Hobby Lobby image on his Facebook page, that...

"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..."

Biggest complaint I'm getting about my #HobbyLobby pic is there's no gun, bible, or flag. Tried to make up for it pic.twitter.com/YneQ9Dkkxi
