Makes only too much sense
Michele Bachmann, whose hopes of being president are fading beneath the heels of Rick Perry’s boots, has proclaimed Phyllis Schlafly “the most important woman in the United States in the last 100 years,” this despite Schlafly’s inability to accomplish anything other than being an utter embarrassment to women and especially to her gay son John. What else can you say about a woman who championed the cause of keeping women in the home and out of the workforce while she got a law degree and ignored her own family. But hey. And I’m sure that women like Margaret Sanger, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mary McLeod Bethune, Marian Wright Edelman, Helen Caldicott, Madeleine Albright, Marie Curie and Betty Ford, to name a few, probably would rather not be picked by the likes of Bachmann as “the” most important.
Speaking of Schlafly, or rather the organization she founded:
Violence is nothing new for unions. Members of the Communication Workers of America attacked a female FreedomWorks activist in February, union protestors threatened to break the neck of a Fox News reporter during a broadcast earlier this year in Wisconsin, and in September of last year, AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka praised Nancy Pelosi for taking Obamacare and driving ‘it down the Republicans’ throats and out their backsides.’ The professional Left knows the day of reckoning is coming, when the American people will call them to account for what they have done to our economy and our country. Their response will be to blame you, blame your family, blame your neighbors, and blame anybody but themselves. And this is just the beginning.
