Feel the Love Tour Continues!

Some of you wonder (I know it!) why I continue to pick on crazy old cat-lady, Phyllis Schlafly. I think you now get it. Between the blacks (not said with irony, either) and unwed women kicking their husbands out (what?) and welfare sponges, Crazy Phyllis is not taking the back seat to any old Teabagger.

(Full disclosure: in the Reagan-era ’80s, Schlafly showed up at my mother’s house to address the DAR meeting she was hosting. My sister, Eightgrain, stood up in the middle of the speech, flipped off Schlafly and walked out of the meeting, along with the younger half of the chapter, never to attend again. This story always stayed with me.)

    That woman is so extreme she even hates her own son for being gay.

    Wasn’t she the one who always kept her daughter away in some boarding school, while she went around getting into every family’s business?

      ‘Spoon, why?

      Wilfredo – that sounds about right. As Libhomo pointed out, she shunned her gay son. I read someplace that he now works for her at the Heritage Foundation. I suppose I could look it up.

      UPDATE: I don’t know if John Schafly actually works at Heritage, but he does work at her Eagle Forum. The other son, Andrew, is the founder of the hysterically reactionary Conservapedia (the wingnuts response to Wikipedia), which amongst many things at one point had flat earth positions, humans riding dinosaurs, etc., as stated fact. Andrew does not acknowledge that his brother is gay, and has locked his Conservapedia page from being updated.

    Hey now. I refuse to “create my own reality” like her shifty son, Andrew. The audio evidence clearly demonstrates her respiratory activity. So, she’s still alive.

    Unless she’s some sort of cyborg sent from the future, that is.

    For nearly eight years I edited Phyllis Schlafly for a now-defunct syndicate and its tottering-on-the-edge successor. Teh crazy that comes out of her IBM Selectric and is transcribed by her flying monkey-Eagle Forum staff used to make me wonder:

    How could an anti-feminist, anti-intellectual, fascist, Luddite St. Louis racist survive the contradiction of being a Harvard lawyer?

    What she is is an octegenarian loudspeaker in the right-wing echo chamber. Her witch’s spawn are the likes of Michelle Malkin and Anne Coulter. They wait in darkened corners to tear the crystal skull, bubbling cauldron and flying broom from Phyllis’ dying hands. On her tombstone, if Mother Earth doesn’t belch her monument to intolerance into the Mississipi River, will be proudly written in Phyllis’ harpy-like scrawl, “Here Lies Phylliss Schlafly, Who Proudly Killed the Equal Rights Amendment, and Would Have Done the Same for NEA.”

    Ten,

    I thought the theory was that they couldn’t die (as they had never actually lived).

    I had to listen to her evil drivel several times in the 60’s/70’s as a part of various panels on the Equal Rights Amendment, and each time I had to take a very hot shower afterwards to remove the slime.

    I remember her arriving and leaving alone every time. She had no close friends, but plenty of funding.

    You should write something about that (and her husband – who was a treat!). Now there’s a conspiracy essay.

    Since the word ‘witch’ is being thrown around in this comment thread, I’d like to point out that most actual witches/Wiccans/pagans would want nothing to do with someone like Schlafly, being that they believe in a Goddess and have rules against doing harm to other people and fun stuff like that.
