Remember Holly Fisher? She is the conservative, Bible totin’, God fearin’, liberal hatin’ conservative who became an instant right wing and social media celebrity last summer after she posted pictures of herself holding a Bible in one hand, and a rifle in the other. Fisher became a favorite with the Fox News crowd thanks to photos like that one, and another, that showed her wearing an anti-abortion t-shirt and holding a Chick-fil-A cup while standing outside of a Hobby Lobby store.
Holly “Hobby Lobby” Fisher cheated on her husband.
But wait, it gets better. Not only has Fisher admitted to cheating on her husband, but the person she admits to having the affair with is Joel Frewa. Frewa is another “family values” sort whose LinkedIn profile says he is currently Communications Director at the TheTeaParty.net. Apparently Frewa has not updated his profile recently, because it seems that he resigned from that position after his tryst with Fisher became public.
Oh, and Fisher’s husband? He’s a combat veteran. Is this her way of “supporting the troops?”
Holly Hobby Lobby is outed by another conservative.
Conservative muck raker Chuck C. Johnson is the person responsible for outing Fisher’s affair. Johnson says, on his site, Got News, that Fisher and Frewa got together on three separate occasions: a “Restoring the Dream” event, a Faith & Freedom conference, and on Election night 2014. Imagine that, two little conservative lovebirds getting all friendly and practicing their family values while at a “Christian” gathering. What could be more perfect?
Of course, Fisher, being a member of the “party of personal responsibility,” ‘fessed up right away, and admitted she was wrong, without qualifications, right? Not exactly.
After at first denying to Johnson that any affair had taken place, Fisher decided to come clean. In a long, rambling Facebook post, explaining her actions to her followers, Fisher, in true conservative style, blamed almost everyone and everything except those dastardly liberals for what she did.
Fisher’s excuses, in order:
- I was unexpectedly thrown into the political spotlight.
- I’ve been married since I was 20.
- I lost my faith in everything, including God.
- I wasn’t happy with my marriage.
- I thought my marriage was over.
- I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety most of my life.
Fisher then tells how, when her daughter came into the bedroom while she was feeling down, she realized that she needed to do something to change. She says:
Right then and there I knew I needed to get off my butt and get on my knees.
But Holly, we thought that getting on your knees was what got you into this mess!
