The American Tealiban

The woman on the left is Holly "Hobby Lobby" Fisher, a misguided, under-educated dolt who believes that she's holding her "First and Second Amendment rights" in her hands in the picture above.

The woman on the right is Sherafiyah Lewthwaite, an international terrorist known as the White Widow who is part of the Al-Shabaab Islamic militant group, a religious zealot who takes her marching orders from her misreading and misunderstanding of the Quran.

Unfortunately, Ms. Fisher doesn't see the similarity in the two pictures or get that she is the American Tealiban In fact, she went on "Fox & Friends" to try to explain her stupidity.

Although the segment begins with some disgusting tweets aimed at her, allegedly from sick individuals she calls "liberals"(and for which there is no excuse), it quickly moved on to Ms. Fisher's own inane thoughts.

HOLLY 'HOBBY LOBBY': “It’s shocking for me that people would compare someone who is standing in front of our flag that represents our freedom on Independence Day. I’m holding my First and Second Amendment rights in my hand and it all represents freedom, and they want to compare me to a woman who is quite the opposite. She despises everything about this country and hates this country and would kill all of us if given an opportunity. I don’t understand where the logic comes from.”

“I expected less backlash with this than I did the first one because the picture is, like, America’s founding principles. That’s all that’s in the picture. And I really didn’t think it would cause the uproar that it has.”

I spoke about this story with both of today's guests: Susie Madrak of Crooks & Liars, and PR Maven, pundit and media mogul Cliff Schecter.

We also discussed the disconnect between the religious right (aka the Holier than Thou crowd) and the teachings of their savior Jesus Christ. As an atheist Jew, I'm more "Christian" than any of those hateful pricks who want to deport innocent children just because they weren't born here.

It's Opposite World...

I'm preparing for my trip to LA for the AFT convention, and then Detroit for Netroots Nation. So I'll cut this blog entry short. But I'll be back tomorrow with Amy Simon and some fabulous female facts, Stephen Goldstein with the No More Bullshit Minute, and whatever else the day brings. See you then, radio or not...
