Woman’s Attempt To Troll Liberals Backfires When Someone Notices This Disturbing Similarity




While many of her followers fawned over the latest “suck it, Liberals!” tweet, one user noticed how creepy the photo was if you stopped to think about it.
@EricSilverUSA this obsession with guns and religion. If @HollyRFisher had a Quran and the same gun she’d look like she was a part of ISIS — John Williams (@willj1508) July 4, 2014
This prompted someone to post the obvious comparison: Fisher’s picture next to an almost identical picture of a young woman holding a similar rifle, in front of a Islamic flag and clutching the Quran. Even their crooked smiles are exactly the same. It’s uncanny.



I always saw the similarities between Christian conservatives and Muslim extremists.

If by "recently" they mean "early to mid last year" and by "get the word out" they mean "bring it all up again because we hate conservatives so much that even though this chick was all over the news last year we want to bring her up again" I can see their point.

Sly insinuation, libs. Equating guns and patriotism to Muslim extremism, creating mental links between the two things in the minds of the weak and gullible.

I dont think youre increasing your political base and convincing anyone though... those who would be convinced by something so asinine are already libs to begin with.

Ain't that the truth! The closest thing to Muslim extremism in the United States is the Progressives!

I bet you my whole next years salary that the one on the left isnt going to run out and kill a bunch of people....

conveniently they dont tell thats White Widow from the Al-Shabaab Islamic militant group who has indeed orchestrated many attacks killing innocent civilians.....and was also married to the 7/7 london bomber.....

The intellectual dishonesty from people on ATS sometimes just blows my mind, no pun intended

The idea that someone cannot see the direct correlation, the almost identical footprint, etc...

Is just about as scary as EITHER person in those two photos.



Yepp, I'd hide my child from *anyone* that was beating that drum...

Do you have proof that the Arab lady is a Muslim extremist...


Ask the OP buddy.


Onslaught2996:

I always saw the similarities between Christian conservatives and Muslim extremists.


That is in direct reference to the woman on the right in the OPs pic.

Typical attempt to divert the flow of the conversation onto a completely irrelevant track. The focus is about associating the idea of patriotism and gun ownership with Muslim extremism on a broad level, not whether the individuals that are used, rightly or wrongly, as representatives of those things are actually those things or not.

I am not impressed, Charlie.

So, kind of like these images?




Have I missed something or is this a fair approximation of the 'logic' that you used to arrive at this conclusion?

I understand that, I also ignored that part in favour of my own thinking that Fundamentalists are similar...


Because you said libs were insiniating, I thought you were going by the article photo, not the OP.
That's why I asked, my bad.

Honestly not my intention, it was a genuine question.


I based my opinion on the photo not the article and I saw a comparison between Funadmentalists not Patriots & extremists.



I am not impressed, Charlie.


My apologies.

I wasn't being funny, just curious.

At first glance, I won't lie, I did think it was the White Widow...


But when I zoomed in I thought the lady in the picture looked more Arab...


Haven't seen her picture for a while though I could be wrong.


No i think its her, at least from all the searches and stuff i did, but I could be wrong

Or other religious extremist groups?
Not sure how you skid over them and get to progressives.
I mean many progressives are rather passive, they don't even like guns usually.

Did a quick Google image search, I should of done that initially because it's the second picture of her!


Good catch.

Fair enough.

I do not think of the woman on the right as anything negative or positive based on the symbolic objects in the photo. I do not associate guns, a presumably Arabic flag, nor the Quran with any one specific idea.

But I know damn well >99% in the West do associate those symbols, especially in combination, with "evil" other things. I know this, and so do propagandists, and propagandists use these almost archtypal images to their advantage whenever possible, because they know most people will not question the association on anything more than a superficial level. So if the images look kinda similar, without further contemplating the situation and just letting it sit as is, most people will have formed a subconscious mental association between the target image and the archtypal image, and by extension, the concepts represented by the target image will also intermingle with the concepts represented by the archtypal image.

Through this, the targeted concepts (patriotism, guns) in the mind of the undiscerning will be tainted in favor of the propagandists agenda.

It's not the White widow

Her name is Reem Riyashi, a Palestinian suicide Bomber.
