  • Phyllis Schlafly - For Freedom For Mums For Families And For Nations

    I LOVE THE WORDS OF PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY: "Forcing women in or near land combat will hurt recruiting, not help." "A country isn't sovereign if we can't control who comes in and who's allowed to come in." “I think the main goal of the feminist movement was the status degradation of the full-time homemaker.” “There’s no real substitute for the care of the real mother.”

    The Anglosphere has some really great thinkers who did good things in the real world for us to compare. I now compare some of her thoughts with a few of former British Prime Minister, Theresa May, who was born on this day the 1st of October in 1956. From May: "You can't solve a problem as complex as inequality in one legal clause." "I grew up the daughter of a local vicar and the granddaughter of a regimental sergeant major." From Schlafly: "The purpose of our military is to field the finest troops possible to defend our nation and win...
  • Phyllis Schlafly - The Real rights Of Women - Being Mothers

    09/21/2023 8:52:39 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 3 replies ^ | 22nd September, 2023, Australian time | Ozguy1945
    Phyllis Schlafly was a brilliant thinker. Here is proof: “Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.” “What I am defending is the real rights of women. A woman should have the right to be in the home as a wife and mother.” “I think the main goal of the feminist movement was the status degradation of the full-time homemaker. They really wanted to get all women out of the homes and into the workforce....
  • Phyllis Schlafly Month - An idea From Australia

    I have learnt from painful experience that modern feminism is an evil misandrist force which threatens the survival of the social order in The West. I congratulate activist attorney Phyllis Schlafly, who died 7 years ago on the 5th of September 2016, for being a great anti-feminist. I believe that one of Schlafly’s great human intellectual achievements is to clearly articulate how important motherhood is to so many women. “Feminism has changed the way women think, and it has changed the way men think, but the trouble is, it hasn’t changed the attitudes of babies at all.” “When I had...

    As a man who has found himself before the courts three times because something I did made an insecure woman uncomfortable, I have learnt that modern feminism is an evil misandrist force which threatens the survival of the social order in The West. I congratulate activist attorney Phyllis Schlafly, who died 7 years ago on the 5th of September 2016, for being a great anti-feminist. I believe that one of Schlafly’s great human intellectual achievements is to clearly articulate how important motherhood is to so many women. Feminist persecution of men will stop if voices like that of Phyllis Schlafly...

I am not feeling well but I have worked myself in part to this exhausted state I find myself in. Vaxxers Or Anti-Vaxxers We Are All God's Children The media making much of Joe Rogan saying he is not an "anti-vaxxer" an indication that the Establishment's march in lockstep media wants to demonize and marginalize opponents of vaccination.

  • Phyllis Schlafly Shaped the Republican Party Platform

    09/05/2020 7:46:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | September 5, 2020 | Rebekah Gantner
    Phyllis Schlafly, conservative icon and my late boss, passed away four years ago today at the age of 92. She was an unwavering voice for the pro-family movement, and her life’s work and legacy live on. Phyllis volunteered in American politics for 70 years, influencing many different political and cultural issues. From military superiority and national sovereignty to education and pro-life issues, she articulately shaped conservative policy. Phyllis is perhaps most famous for leading the decade-long fight to defeat the so-called Equal Rights Amendment which she saw as a threat to all women. Her influence didn’t stop there. She also...
  • Vanity Fair Asks if Hollywood Is ‘Too Soft’ on Conservative Women

    07/29/2020 6:24:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | July 29, 2020 | Katie Yoder
    Conservative women are untouchable, according to the very media that condemn them.  On July 23, a Vanity Fair headline asked, “Is Hollywood Too Soft on Conservative Women?” TV critic Sonia Saraiya answered with a resounding “yes” as she explored Phyllis Schlafly in "Mrs. America," Megyn Kelly in "Bombshell," and Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." Conservative women also bypass the media’s scrutiny, she insisted. Except, of course, by Saraiya herself, who suggested that they belonged to a group of “white nationalist racist gender traitors.”Saraiya’s first mistake came when she assumed that “conservative” women, who adhere to a political ideology, are...
  • The mother who took on America, Phyllis Schlafly - played by Cate Blanchett in a new TV drama - championed family values but dragged women to the Dark Ages (hurl Alert)

    When she first welcomed British 'morality' campaigner Mary Whitehouse to her home town of St Louis, Missouri, in December 1972, America's own self-appointed moral guardian, Phyllis Schlafly, might have wondered whether she was looking at a mirror image of herself. Both favouring twin-sets, the two women also sported stiffly lacquered hairstyles — but the similarities between them went far beyond their prim appearance. Middle-aged matrons they might have been, but both were experts at — and relished — riling their opponents. Hugh Carleton-Greene, the BBC's director-general between 1960 and 1969, was so often provoked by Whitehouse that he bought a...

    'Mrs. America' tries to paint Phyllis Schlafly as cold and unforgiving, but the conservative icon my grandmother and I knew was nothing of the sort. My grandmother was in a Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter with Phyllis Schlafly from 1965 to 1990. A few years before she died, I had the privilege to intern for Mrs. Schlafly. So, during quarantine, as we watched the FX series “Mrs. America” together, we became filled with growing frustration and disgust at seeing the woman we had known misrepresented and defamed. What is most striking about “Mrs. America,” however, is how little it...

    Just as has happened in our economy dominated by finance capitalism, feminism brought outsized benefits to a few in exchange for the suffering of many. Starring Academy Award Winner Cate Blanchett as conservative firebrand Phyllis Schlafly, Hulu series “Mrs. America” has been getting awards buzz. While the writers are too skilled to give a one-dimensional portrayal of Schlafly, nonetheless the broader agenda of the show is clear: to anathematize Schlafly, build up the feminists who opposed her, and ultimately, to push for a new Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). “Mrs. America” is effective propaganda against Schlafly and conservative ideas because it...
  • Protesting never solved anything - except defeated the ERA

    Have you ever explained to a friend of yours how fun protesting is, about how important it is, how its right in the constitution because the Founders wanted us to be protesters - only to be met with irritation or a belief that protesting is somehow a "left wing thing"? Or, the worst one of all is this one: "Yeah well protesting never solved anything". Honestly, I think this one could be just as bad: "I have a job", as if somehow being active and involved is beneath you and apathy is virtuous. I have news for you, because you...

    Phyllis Schlafly on the Equal Rights Amendment | Phil Donahue Show 1974 One of Phyllis Schlafly's most well-known and quoted television appearances was on the Donahue Show in 1974. She fielded questions from the crowd and took praise and criticism alike for over an hour, defending her positions soundly with a smile the whole time. As the battle against ERA and radical anti-family forces continues, there's no better time than now to see and learn from Phyllis's timeless techniques and still-timely arguments in defense of America's women. Looks to be the entire show Video is 45 minutes long
  • ‘Mrs. America’ Makes Conservative Schlafly A Cold, Attention-Seeking ‘Antihero’

    Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly remains a heroine to many conservatives. Clearly, she is not to the makers of Mrs. America, which debuted on FX on Hulu Wednesday. From the start, Schlafly is shown pretending. She pastes a smile to walk a runway in a red, white and blue bikini at a Republican fundraiser. Once she’s safely facing backstage, the phony smile is dropped. Throughout the first three episodes, Cate Blanchett’s portrayal makes Schlafly seem intelligent, but also cold and desperate to have a voice in the male-dominated political universe. In multiple scenes she becomes annoyed when others try to...

    Feminist matriarch Betty Friedan may have never actually called Phyllis Schlafly “The real wicked witch of the [women’s] movement,” but that’s certainly how Mrs. America is portraying Schlafly in the new series. In “Betty,” Wednesday's fourth episode of the FX on Hulu show, the fight between feminists and STOP ERA is raging in 1973, just after the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade. The feminists are so elated by the court ruling legalizing abortion, Friedan (played by Tracey Ullman) is the only one of who sees the grassroots conservative efforts as a growing threat. It’s a threat she’s determined...
  • Hulu’s ‘Mrs. America’ disparages Harvard-educated mom who helped defeat the pro-abortion Equal Rights Amendment

    04/27/2020 8:30:56 PM PDT · by Morgana · 1 replies
    When Betty Friedan’s book, “The Feminine Mystique,” was published in 1963, it outlined legitimate grievances of women feeling isolated and unfulfilled in their homes. Referring to the problem as “this nameless dissatisfaction for women,” the original manuscript for Friedan’s book did not mention abortion or contraception. Her book was passionate, and it inspired women, but it did not indict them for motherhood. Rather, Friedan called for this new brand of feminism to be a pro-family movement. Unfortunately, sexual liberation and misandry became the forefront of the movement, and this trend continues today. Women like Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown (who...

    To Hollywood, Schlafly was either a confused victim suffering from a chronic case of Stockholm syndrome or a purely evil, power-hungry denigrator of women — or both. In Hulu’s recent biopic “Mrs. America,” the fourth episode of which was released Wednesday, Hollywood attempts to depict the two sides of the women’s liberation movement. This again only proves how much it misunderstands conservative women.The miniseries tells the story of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), highlighting high-profile female proponents and opponents. Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, and others are among the featured proponents, while Phyllis Schlafly and her band of activist...

    My mother Phyllis Schlafly made quite a name for herself in the fight over the Equal Rights Amendment, but here are a few little-known facts about her. 1. She was painfully shy. It was easier for her to speak at a podium to a huge crowd than to engage in small-talk with one person. She spent her life trying to conquer her shyness. 2. She had a keen sense of humor and used humor to score debate points. She once sang “Bella’s Bunch is Coming to Town” to the tune of the Santa Claus version. 3. She recited the rosary...

    Unable to defeat Schlafly in life, cultural elites in Hollywood are now attacking her posthumously in the brazenly dishonest 'Mrs. America' series.> Liberal cultural elites have had it out for Phyllis Schlafly since she defeated the Equal Rights Amendment in 1979. Now, producers of the FX/Hulu series “Mrs. America” have hypocritically done to Schlafly exactly what the women’s liberation and Me Too movements complain “the patriarchy” does to women it cannot control: rape and defile them. The so-called Equal Rights Amendment, or ERA, was a perfect Hollywood cause. It allowed supporters to appear pro-woman, while Hollywood knew the amendment posed...
