Yessir, this the Plan Nine from Oregon Right Wing Victimology Emporium!  Come on down, WE'RE C-R-A-Z-Y.  This week, it's the previously little-known Holly R. Fisher who's been Standing Up For Freedom® by tweeting about the wonders of Hobby Lobby, Chick-fil-A, etc., and apparently has come to be known, at least among the socialistic twitterariat as Holly Hobby Lobby.

And since in addition to blessing us with the wonders of cheap Chinese-made goods and greasy chicken ready to go, the God of Abraham also invented firearms (including the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, well, go ahead and combine all that and tweet out to the world and the gun-grabbing God-less liberal riff raff that you mean business!  Or at least you are trolling them good by combining the three things every liberal hates: The Bible, the (military-style) Rifle, and the American Flag, and the observance of which will turn them into dust like vampires in the sun.

But then one of those America-hating low-information voters did a bad bad thing, and ... takes you seriously, creating this:

Michael Stone, from the Peoples Republic of Portland, Oregon, writes here:

Variations of images comparing the two religious extremists are winding their way across social media.

Conservatives claim the comparison is not fair, but the eyes do not deceive.
Perhaps the only thing more dangerous and destructive than religious extremism, is violent religious extremism cloaked in the mask of pseudo patriotism.

While Holly Hobby Lobby is just a social media clown out for attention, she represents a dangerous strand of Christian fundamentalism that enjoys flirting with, if not threatening, real violence.

You can read here the Righteous Indignation from Charles C.W. Cooke, who escaped from Air Strip One to let us know that he's shocked, shocked that the America-hating left would dare compare Ms. Hobby Lobby to ... uh ... a religious extremist.  Readers Digest condensed version of Comrade Cooke's remarks :
Let me out. Let me out of here. Get me the hell out of here. What's the matter with you people? I was joking! Don't you know a joke when you hear one? HA-HA-HA-HA. Jesus Christ, get me out of here! Open this goddamn door or I'll kick your rotten heads in! Mommy!
Or something like that.  Anyway, happy Tiwes Day, you godless infidel rabble!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
