Phyllis Schlafly Passed Away!

Another figure in the conservative movement is gone.

Another conservative bigot passes away. I think for the better. They have nominated Donald Trump as their Republican nominee. A business/media mogul who has maintained this movement of extremists. She didn't live to see the day Donald Trump could either become our 45th President of The United States or another picture on the Washed Up Presidential Candidates Museum in Norton, Kansas.

A woman who embraced Trump's campaign died today at the age of 92. A few weeks after celebrating her birthday.

Phyllis Schlafly. an iconic conservative activist and business mogul passed away in St. Louis.

Schlafly once called feminist, "a bunch of bitter women seeking a constitutional cure for their personal problems". She believed women should find their greatest fulfillment at home with their family.

She famously opposed the Equal Rights Amendment. She was the founder of the Eagle Forum. The forum was staunchly anti-feminist, anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and anti-Black.

She was a deeply polarizing figure. She would call for activism against the Equal Rights Amendment.

She would fail at achieving the goal. The Congress passed it and 35 of 38 states ratified the amendment.

She was survived by six children and many grandchildren.
