Remembering Phyllis Schlafly
Known as the “Sweetheart of the Silent Majority” conservative legend Phyllis Schlafly passed away surrounded by family in her home in Ladue, Missouri yesterday evening.
Phyllis and her late-husband Fred were married for forty-four happy years. They had six children, sixteen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.
As well as being a wife and mother Phyllis Schlafly was an accomplished lawyer and conservative activist. Her awards ranged from being Illinois’ Mother of the Year to being named one of the 100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century by the Ladies’ Home Journal.
A champion of the American family and American values Phyllis Schlafly will be impossible to replace within the conservative movement.
Her monthly newsletter, ‘The Phyllis Schlafly Report’, kept conservatives informed on the pressing issues of the day. It had just entered its 50th year of publication with more than 600 reports published.
She has been described as standing for everything that has made America great and for those things which will keep it that way.
Most recently she led the charge against the Gang of Eight amnesty plan and President Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.
Schlafly’s last great political battle, which she won, was pushing for the Republican presidential nomination of Donald J. Trump, whom she saw as America’s last hope. Schlafly, who described Trump as the “only hope to defeat the Kingmakers,” became one of his earliest and most influential endorsements. With Schlafly’s backing, Trump went on to win more votes than any Republican nominee in U.S. history.
An author of more than two dozen books, Phyllis Schlafly’s final act of devotion to the country she loved was the publication of a new book, set for release this Tuesday, titled “The Conservative Case for Trump.” In it, Schlafly lays out what is at stake in this election if conservatives do not mobilize to propel Trump to the Oval Office.
Schlafly said that this election represents America’s last chance, explaining that if Trump does not win and mass immigration is not stopped, “we’re not going to be America anymore.”
Wise words from a very wise lady. We would do well to heed them in this election.
