Phyllis Schlafly lived

The Labor Day death of Phyllis Schlafly at 92 brought out the trolls among the left who called her names. Her death matters less than her life. She kept pushing for an unvarnished and unapologetic conservatism, as championed by Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.

World Net Daily published her last column a few hours ago.

From Phyllis Schlafly:
Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader of the USSR in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War.
The 1985 Geneva summit was highly advertised as a potential showdown between Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the supposedly reasonable new Soviet leader. When it was over, Americans realized that behind Reagan’s genial affability was a steely determination to protect our country against the threat from Soviet nuclear missiles.
Just as today’s mainstream media are bent on undermining Trump’s call to put Americans first in our dealings with Mexico, the media of the 1980s (led by ABC’s Sam Donaldson and CBS’ Dan Rather) were overwhelmingly pro-Gorbachev and anti-Reagan in their daily coverage.
Her column is a reminder that we are on the right course, and we should remain true. The critics who hate America -- its self-reliance, its upward mobility, its sheer majesty -- never change. Only our heroes do.

She ended her column, "Voters finally have the opportunity to choose a president who will make America first by securing our border and ending one-sided trade deals that favor foreign workers rather than our own. Trump’s strong stance in his meeting with the Mexican president demonstrates that Donald Trump is the 'choice, not an echo'."

When I read the denigrating remarks about her, I realize that they are tributes to her ability to stand up for our country and our great tradition, against the egg-sucking weasels on both sides of the aisle.

  1. My Mom was a charter member of Eagle Forum. I have her copy of A Choice Not An Echo and her old Stop ERA buttons. Heirlooms. Both of them were great women and more effective patriots than I and most of the people trying to follow in their footsteps. Even at age 92 this is a huge loss. Like losing Harry Jaffa or Richard John Neuhaus. Or Charles Colson.

  2. "When I read the denigrating remarks about her, I realize that they are tributes to her ability to stand up for our country and our great tradition, against the egg-sucking weasels on both sides of the aisle." Dems are misogynists.

  3. One of the most critical patrols in medieval walled towns under siege was that to prevent traitors opening the gates to the enemy.
