I admit to my own loathing of Phyllis Schlafly because she destroyed all chances for the ERA to pass with her lies and political maneuvering. She was my first impression of women in politics and it wasn't pretty. Now she's ancient, but no less awful.
Today's dollop of Schlafly hate comes via an interview with WorldNutDaily, where she dreams of the day Donald Trump can resurrect Operation Wetback 2.0.
Excited about Donald Trump’s call for the mass deportation of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly told WorldNetDaily this weekend that she wants American railways to join the deportation effort, hoping to one day “see those railroad cars full of illegals going south.”
Blasting President Obama’s call for the U.S. to take in Syrian refugees as “ridiculous,” she warned that “Obama wants to change the character of our country” by bringing in people who “have no comprehension of our constitutional system, of limited government, of the people being in control.”
“Every time they say, ‘You can’t deport these people, in my mind’s eye, I see the picture of those railroad cars carrying the illegals out of our country when Eisenhower deported them. They say it was a failure. It wasn’t at all,” Schlafly told WND in an exclusive interview. “In my mind’s eye, I see those railroad cars full of illegals going south. That’s what they ought to do.”
She loves her some Donald Trump-flavored fascism, too.
She added, “I think the grassroots are going to win out because there are more of them every day who are believing what Trump says and disbelieving what the elite are trying to tell us.”
Yes, Phyl. Nothing says grassroots like a woman who receives millions from conservative billionaires each year to spew venom like this.
