Multiple sources are confirming this.

She was 92.

Schlafly was a female conservative in a field where ladies didn't do that. It's hard to be a female conservative, you take a lot of flack for not leaning left, and she's been in the fight since the early '70s.


Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972, a pro-family conservative group focusing heavily on social issues — it has about 80,000 members and, as of this week, Schlafly was still president.

“Phyllis Schlafly spent an astounding 70 years in public service of her fellow Americans,” said the Eagle Forum in a statement. “Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life. She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values. From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values.”


She stayed sharp right up til the end. We should all be so lucky.

RIP.

Back in college, I did some political work. The phone rang, as I tried to repeat the last name, I butchered the name "Schlafly". As I mispronounced her name, the campaign manager's eyes got real big as he rushed for the phone.

Well that explains why the air smelled a little sweeter today.
It's times like these that makes me wish Hell truly existed.

You rejoice in another person's death? Why?

Because the suffering they inflict on others will come to an end.

Schlafly & her ilk are despicable examples of humanity & the world is better off without them.
