Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly devoted her second radio bulletin in a row today to accusing President Obama of failing to keep Ebola out of the United States, where there are currently no known cases of Ebola. Declaring that “nobody elected Barack Obama to clean up Africa,” Schlafly attacked the president for not banning all travel to the U.S. from the West African countries at the center of the Ebola outbreak, and went on to warn that “unchecked foreigners” from Central America — where there are also currently zero cases of Ebola — will...

Phyllis Schlafly: Attention On Campus Rape Part Of 'War On Men,' Proof 'It's Really Dangerous For A Guy To Go To College'

In an interview today with WorldNetDaily, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly weighed in on efforts to combat sexual assaults on college campuses, which she contended are part of a feminist “war on men.” Schlafly pointed to questions surrounding the accuracy of a Rolling Stone report on rape allegations at the University of Virginia as evidence that increased attention to fighting sexual assault on campuses is misplaced and reiterated her claim that college is a “dangerous” place for men: “It’s really dangerous for a guy to go to college these days. He... MORE >

A group of Religious Right organizations have taken a sudden interest in curbing government spending on national parks and public lands…all in the interest of stopping the creation of a museum dedicated to American women’s history. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is currently holding up a defense authorization bill that was passed last week in the House, contending that a public lands package attached to it is too pricey and doesn’t belong in a defense bill. While Coburn and Sen. Ted Cruz have objected to provisions in the bill designating new national wilderness areas, which... MORE >

Roger Schlafly, a son of Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly who has repeatedly taken to the organization’s blog to lament the increasing population of racial minorities in the U.S., yesterday took issue with a William H. Frey article in Newsweek celebrating America’s growing racial diversity. “Tell that to the people of Ferguson Missouri,” Schlafly wrote in response to Frey’s assertion that minority groups can bring “manpower and brain power” to “otherwise stagnating city and suburban housing markets.” Schlafly also criticized America...

Stan Solomon celebrated the death of Michael Brown on his talk show this week during an interview with Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly. The far-right pundit, who marked Trayvon Martin’s death in the same vein, said that “Michael Brown was shot because he’s a thug. I’m glad he’s dead. He deserves to be dead. He was a thug. He had a lifetime of thuggery and his dad was a convicted drug dealer.” Solomon made the remarks after his other guest, conservative commentator Brent Johnson, dared to suggest that the grand jury investigating Brown’s death was...

When a number of prominent anti-abortion rights groups submitted an amicus brief defending the rights of pregnant workers in Young v. UPS, a case that was argued before the Supreme Court this week, we were not surprised that Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum was not among them. After all, Schlafly has built a long career out of arguing against protections for women in their careers. In fact, it turns out, Schlafly submitted her very own amicus brief [pdf] in the case defending UPS’s right to suspend employees who become pregnant. And even thought the brief is written by Schlafly... MORE >
Phyllis Schlafly And Alex Jones Have Immigration Meltdown: We Are On 'Accelerated Collapse-Of-Rome Timetable'

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones hosted legendary conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly on his “Infowars” program today to talk about President Obama’s executive action granting deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants, which both agreed would inevitably lead to the collapse of the nation. “This really is the end of the republic, the end of Congress,” Jones said. “There’s been a lot of signposts on this road to perdition, but I don’t think I have strong enough words for the constitutional crisis we’re in, where on guns, UN...

In an interview with WorldNetDaily published on Friday, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly said that while previous generations of immigrants “became 200 percent Americans,” the “class of people coming in now…don’t really have any comprehension of our system of government and look to big government to be their guide of whatever they want to do.” Schlafly has previously said that Latino immigrants “don’t understand” the Bill of Rights. “Obama’s moving ahead with his attempt to do all kinds of illegal things in order to...
