Phyllis Shlafly Dies At Age 92

Tue Sep 06, 2016 1:45 am

http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/05/politics/ ... index.html

I have always been taught to not say anything bad about someone when they die, so I won't.

Let's just say that, in my mind, she fought to keep women Second Class citizens, while she herself demanded to be treated equally by men.

Condolences to her family.

I really tried to keep it as respectful as I could. How I really feel? Maybe that'll come down the road. I can tell you I could get a little more colorful of my feelings on her.

I have no such restraint. I will damn the evil in death. Ms. Schlafly (I use that honorific specifically because she hated it) made her living of loathing with a sprinkling of hypocrisy. I have nothing good to say of her.

Bye, Phylliscia... Rot in hell. Say hi to The Hon. Antonin Scalia for me once you get there.

Ms. Schlafly was a leading figure of the 'religious right' through her self created 'Eagle Forum' in the 1970's and 1980's. A major figure in the anti-abortion movements. Derailed the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution which would true equality for women. Hated GLTBQ's, blaming AIDS on Gay Men. Supported Ronald Reagan and more recently Donald Trump. A strong supporter of our military and of wars in the Islamic World. She had too much access to leaders of the Republican party who pandered to get the votes of the so-called religious.
I find her views to be offensive but she had a right to express them, I just wish the media didn't make her a go to person for the right wing view.
She got to live a long life, I have no wish that she suffered. Wishing here to go to hell or to pee on her grave is just as wrong as the same as to Hillary Clinton or some other 'liberal' person.

No, because there is right and wrong in the world. See, Ms. Schlafly set out to make sure that everyone who didn't live exactly as she did was punished. She set out to harm other people out of sheer loathing for them. Fortunately, like many of her ilk, she found herself lacking the tools to do what she really wanted to do.

She's one of a long line of people like that. Pol Pot, Hitler, Milosevic', a number of Popes, just about every genocidal maniac, really. The only difference is that Ms. Schlafly was born in a time and place and under circumstances in which she never found herself with a genocidal industrial apparatus at her disposal.

But if I said the things about your family that she said about mine, you'd probably be glad to see me go, too.

She was just doing the good lordt's work, as it says in one korinthians in duh bible!

"women are to be silent in the churches. They are not permitted to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they wish to inquire about something, they are to ask their own husbands at home; for it is dishonorable for a woman to speak in the church"

Not sure how female evangelicals get around that one but then again they pick and choose everything else. Women like her, Palin, Bachmann, etc., really need to STFU and let their husbands speak for them, cuz Jesus! #praiseHim

Apart from a rather shallow identification of all people of a certain age group as having definable views, your image of Europe is also distorted. Frauke Petry is a young woman (not a "boomer") whose views are fiercely anti-immigration. Marine Le pen, also not a boomer, leads another party that thrives on hatred an division. The thugs who firebomb refugee centres in Germany are also unlikely to be in their late fifties or sixties.

So-called baby boomers come in all shapes and sizes, some voting Conservative, some voting Social Democratic, some supporting far right organisations and many not caring one way or another. Some have modest incomes, some are extremely wealthy, others rely on state pensions. Some go to the movies, some play chess and prefer football. Some brought up their children to be decent citizens, or at least did their best to do so.

I profess to having never read any of Shlafy's works but she hardly belongs to a group that can be called baby boomers, even by the most slavish adherent of the need to label people they despise. But one thing is clear: some of the most vociferous exponents of "freedom" are just as narrow-minded and bigoted as the people they condemn.

Even worse: everyone who didn't live exactly as she SAID to live, but chose NOT to live by herself.

Phyllis went to law school.
Phyllis had nannies raise her kids, while she pursued a career.
Phyllis started businesses and organizations solely in her name.
Phyllis became the leader of political action committee, long before PACs as we know them today.
...and when Phyllis was asked her stance on something, she gave it, without consulting any man.

Basically, everything she did in life, were the things that she crusaded against acceptance of women being able to do! The ultimate hypocrite.

The only way it could get any worse (or better, depending on your stance) is by us finding out that she had a secret lady-friend at some point.

Agreed. When someone thrusts herself into the public eye and demands attention, her views and opinions are fair game, even in death. She worked tirelessly to defend laws designed to hold others (but not necessarily herself) back. I'm not going to pretend I'm sad to see her go. I'm glad you bring up Scalia. I recall when he died many of my supposedly progressive friends lionized him. But then, most of them are white, cisgender male progressives and brogressives who've never dealt with any sort of discrimination in their lives, a group often more grating than conservatives in their total lack of understanding of the struggles that the dispossessed faced, so non were truly affected by his decisions and opinions the way others of us were. Scalia wasn't worthy of lionization. He was an awful human being who wielded his great power to harm those with whom he disagreed. And, as a prominent local attorney noted, he, more than anyone else, is responsible for the notable decline in legal discourse over the last 30 or so years. The man was incredibly unprofessional in his writing and I'm not about to pretend I'm going to grieve his death.

Hit a nerve did I? What part of my very specific condemnation of a subset of people didn't you understand? I called to account wing-nut, Bible Beating Baby Boomers. Are you a wing-nut? Are you a bible beater? Are you a baby boomer? You can say yes to any one of these and not be included in my list. But if you are all three; a bible beating, wing-nut, baby boomer, then yes I'm happy this small subset of Americans will be dead soon. *shrug*

They have tried to make my life hell on Earth so wishing their next plane of existence is less than desirable seems fair. Don't like it? Tough!

I have literally no use for hypocrites.

Genocidal maniacs at least do have some uses (horrible ones, but they are uses). Hypocrites have none.

There's a glimmer of karma therein though...
...that very action served to undo the only lasting thing that she's ever created: her PAC, the "Eagle Forum."

There'd long been plenty of contention between Schlafly and the current leadership of that group, due to her constant hypocrisy.

Among the most public was its schism in 1992, when her son (and the group's lawyer and custodian of records) came out as gay himself, and she refused to expel him (a "known homosexual" as per the group's then charter) from their ranks.

At the time of her Trump endorsement, the Eagle Forum membership had decided to back the never-divorced Cruz. Schlafly endorsed Trump, and most of her membership found out the same way that the rest of us did. Apparently, that was the last straw, as the group now seems to have all but halted any political activism, leading up to the election.

Hit a nerve did I?

It's always refreshing to meet an intellectual giant whose idea of debate is to ignore the points raised and simply edit with the words "blah, blah". But lest you have genuine concern about hitting a nerve, rest assured it would take a lot more.

The fact is that you do constantly harp on about baby boomers, a meaningless term that is simply an excuse for ageism. The term crops up regularly in your recent posts and without any qualification. That doesn't surprise me as the term has been increasingly used in various media in other countries as well, mainly when discussing tax and pension reforms. The fact that even people in marketing are not agreed on a definition shows how meaningless the term actually is. But to those who seek comfort in pejorative labels, feel free to continue.

It is funny that she lost control of her organization isn't it? The Eagle Forum decided Trump was a pig, a degenerate, an idiot. Watching Schlafly get tangled into the Westboro Baptist Bible whack jobs has been amazing. She dies as a hateful, homophobe, old pig, where she deserves to die. She dies alone, and with 95% of America hating her and wishing her soul a trip to hell. *shrug*

This is such a bullshit copout that is *ALWAYS* used by the people who have all the power. Those in power decide a group doesn't deserve the same rights, no matter how hypocritical their argument is, and when that group calls them out on it they always whine that they're being persercuted, or called mean names like "bigot" or "racist" when that is EXACTLY what it is. A bunch of rednecks take over a bird sanctuary because the government had the audacity to try to get these welfare queens to pay up, and Sean Hannity surgically stitched his lips to their asses because they're such wonderful freedom fighters! This dumb see you next Tuesday tells women they don't deserve equal rights and gosh, we can't say accurate things about a legitimately mean person--"you're just as bad". Give me a break.

You've missed the point completely.I don't even know this woman or her writings. My objection was to the categorisation of an entire age group as baby boomers who all share the same views and characteristics. If I were to write about all Chinese or all African-Americans in pejorative terms, I would correctly be called out for racism. Yet it is apparently acceptable to denigrate people purely on the basis of when they were born, rather than what they have done. Some prejudices can be defended, it seems.

Feel free to criticise this persons views or actions as you will but lumping a ninety-two year old in with "baby-boomers" (and remember that the person to whom I addressed my comment does use the term as a pejorative, not a compliment) is stretching things a bit far and hardly "accurate." Oh, And by the way, I think you'll find that most feminists would find your description of any woman, however vile she may be, as a "see you next Tuesday" objectionable. What next, calling a right-wing black man a nigger?

I don't think so at all. I'd find it hard to believe most feminists could say a single positive thing about her, other than that she's worm food now, albeit still bigoted worm food. Betty Friedan wanted to "burn her at the stake" and considering how mainstream Republicans regularly call for HRC to be "strung up" or shot on the National Mall for sins they can never quite put their finger on, imagine their reaction if HRC actually fought to limit their rights?

And we're right back to your fundamental misunderstanding of PacificBeach's point. Again, he was talking about a specific subgroup of baby boomers, not baby boomers as a whole. You're right that she is too old to be a boomer, but there are many in that subgroup who do share her views.

With all due respect, this is one of the weakest arguments there is. It's like when white nationalists ask why it's OK to denigrate white people but not minorities. In the US and in most Western countries, there is a long history of racism involving those groups. There is not a history of prejudice against baby boomers. Boomers were handed the world on a silver platter, given more than their parents could have dreamed of, and left those of us in Generation X and the Millenial generation a giant mess to clean up and far less than the Boomers had. It is by no means a powerless group.

See above. No one ever said it was all baby boomers.
HGL wrote:

Perhaps they would, but they certainly wouldn't disagree with the sentiment. She actively opposed feminists and, as Maverick correctly points out, she wasn't exactly loved by feminists either.

Another note, in future do not spell out the n-word on these forums. I realize it doesn't have the same impact in other countries, but it's long, ugly history in the US makes it a particularly awful word.

Personally, I see no difference between holding a prejudice against a person based on whether he/she is black, female, gay, disabled or old. I am not engaged in a pissing competition to decide who has been the greatest victim of oppression or intolerance. A prejudice is still a prejudice, regardless of which group happens to be the target. Certainly here in Australia, arguments against "baby boomers"are used to justify changes in the tax and pension regime. You need to create a climate that makes the changes acceptable and what better way than to paint with a broad brush an entire generation?

OA412 wrote:

Why ever not? I have not called anyone by that name and never do. I simply asked that if it is acceptable for the poster to describe a woman, any woman, as a cunt, given the historical and enduring discrimination and misogyny women have faced, would he attack a person he disagreed with as a nigger if he were black? In the context, perfectly reasonable. It is a far cry from actually writing "see you next Tuesday" where the intended insult is perfectly clear, yet you apparently have no problem with. So both ageism and misogyny are acceptable, it seems.

So you too, despite your outrage being "genuine" rather than "faux" , see nothing wrong in calling a woman a "see you next Tuesday." Now why does that not surprise me?

As I said, I neither know the woman nor have I read her works so I have no need or desire to defend her, but I also stand by what I wrote:

What in holy hell are you going on about? I've never called a woman "see you next Tuesday", as I don't even know what that means. Are you feeling ok? :?: :?: :?:

Yet you choose to berate me for "faux outrage". Now, perhaps you'll understand why I wrote the text that you quoted.

Yah blocking/delaying rights for hundreds of millions of women, LGBQT, and AIDS victims is sorta similar to me calling her a mean name. Except not at all. When I start calling for whole genders/races/sexualities to be treated as second class citizens, then we can compare notes and decide who is just as bad. The rulling stands: (dead #praiseHim) you-know-what.

Who the hell is she? Why do people (beyond her family) think she will be missed? I guess I missed the memo in US History class years ago.

Gurl BYE. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way to the hell that I don't even believe in. LOL

Someone who successfully managed to delay/stifle/stymie rights for women and LGBTs for decades.

Her personal opinions are not of note.
Her success in parlaying them into government policy, even if only for a time... is.
