This powerful woman is Elizabeth Poe, proud owner of The Joy of Knitting in Franklin, Tennessee.
As an American citizen she exercised her constitutional right to express herself.
As an American business owner she exercised her “right to refuse service to anyone.”
As a Christian she stood up for what she believes is right.
But there was a problem. She’s not a “liberal.”
She’s not Kellogg’s who pulled advertising from Breitbart because the publication didn’t “align with their values.”
She’s not the CEO of Starbucks who’d happy to blow off a large part of their clientele and risk shareholder profits by telling customers to get their coffee elsewhere if they didn’t believe in same-sex marriage.
She’s not some untalented “designer” who, in spite of not being asked, “refuses” to dress First Lady Melania Trump in the wannabe K-Mart rages that Michelle rolled out of bed in.
Nope. Elizabeth Poe is an independent business owner who put it all on the line to speak her mind.
Her facebook post went viral:
With the recent women’s march on Washington, I ask that you if you want yarn for any project for the women’s movement that you please shop for yarn elsewhere. The vulgarity, vile and evilness of this movement is absolutely despicable. That kind of behavior is unacceptable and is not welcomed at The Joy of Knitting. I will never need that kind of business to remain open. Two wrongs will never ever make it right.
As the owner of this business and a Christian, I have a duty to my customers and my community to promote values of mutual respect, love, compassion, understanding, and integrity. The women’s movement is counterproductive to unity of family, friends, community, and nation.
I do pray for these women. May the God work out His love in their hearts and continue to heal and unite Americans.
The backlash has been vicious and unrelenting.
Problem is, “liberals” don’t read. She wasn’t telling them not to protest. She bit her tongue as to why they were marching. She did say that their vile behavior was offensive and it was the wrong way to get their point across.
Ironically, had they given any thought to her words, they might have saved themselves the embarrassment of looking like vulgar unhinged idiots.
They marched to claim the victory of battles won long ago by brave women with dignity.
Their priority was to flaunt tacky attention-starved porno props to hide their true motives-abortion rights and the protest President Trump’s fairly won election.
Elizabeth is being deluged with media attention and unrelenting attacks from radicalized lefties. But she’s not backing down.
We’ve seen so much evil exposed during this last election cycle. But God has also blessed us with heroes and sheroes, both here and across the globe. We’re all familiar with the famous ones, but it’s also important to recognize our fellow citizens who are fighting the good fight.
