The Older Version Of Ann Coulter Dies
Phyllis Schlafly, the outspoken conservative who helped defeat the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s and founded the right-wing Eagle Forum political group is no more. She is dead at 92.
Those who love history know it was her efforts which led to Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona earning the 1964 GOP nomination. But it was her mindless tirades over the ERA and ‘radical feminists’ that earned her lasting fame.
Her Eagle Forum is not hard to define–it prattles on about the same conservative issues that dominate any three-thumb convention. Low taxes, a strong military and English-only education.
I really can not think of anything kind to say about Schlafly simply because there is nothing nice to say. The following is just more proof as to why I feel this way.
Caller: The question I have is, how is it that no one has taken the ACLU to task in the courtroom and basically charged them with subversive activity?
Schlafly: Well, personally, Dr. Corsi, I think we need a new House Un-American Activities Committee.
Anyone with an ounce of knowledge about the horror that followed the actions of the HUAC would never utter such a profoundly idiotic remark. Yet she did. There were countless other such examples over the decades.
Those crazy remarks have now ended.
