Phyllis Schlafly went home yesterday. Eagle Forum has an announcement on their page today.
Phyllis Schlafly was one of the first people I remember hearing that wasn’t pushing the same line as Walter Cronkite and his ilk back in the mid-1970s as I was gaining a political consciousness. When I listened to her argue the conservative case, it made more sense than the case made by the opposition.
Thank God for folks like her, and for Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and so many others who successfully “Stood athwart history yelling ‘Stop!'” In reality, what they did was thwart retrogression cloaked under the false banner ‘Progress.’ That’ll be the topic of an essay another time. I wish I’d been able to be the first to explain but Roger L Simon of PJ Media beat me to the use of the term ‘Retrogressive’ before I could use it. (Apologies for the lack of a link, as best I remember, Mr Simon used the term well over five years ago).
Goodbye for now, Mrs Schlafly, and rest in well-deserved peace.
