Phyllis Schlafly endorses Trump [and, More shrill rhetoric from disgruntled conservatives: “a phony, a make believe christian, Adolf Hitler reincarnate”]
[The Sweetheart of the Silent Majority speaks out for The Donald]
Iconic patriot Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald J. Trump Friday, as her pick for the President of the United States.
Schlafly made the announcement with Ed Martin, the president of the Eagle Forum, at noon from the St. Louis rally at the Peabody Opera House on Market Street.
“I was born and grew up here, went to school and college in St. Louis and its a great city and I welcome you all, this is the heart of america and I’m glad to meet a great american.
Schlafly, 91, has been a long-time conservative publicist, as well the national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She has also been heralded since 1972 as the leader of the pro-family movement, when she led the fight to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment.
SCHLAFLY TRUMP APPROVAL
In December, Schlafly said that she believed Trump Is ‘Last Hope for America’, noting her severe disappointment in the GOP regarding the betrayal over the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill.
At the time, Schlafly told WND that “this is a betrayal of the grassroots and of the Republican Party. We thought we were electing a different crowd to stand up for America, and they didn’t. We’re extremely outraged by what Congress has done. Nancy Pelosi couldn’t have engineered it any better.” She ended by saying “I think the people are going to react by electing Donald Trump.”
In response to the omnibus passage, Trump released a statement to ABC News saying: “If anyone needs more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan. In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent president, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.”
“Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?”
In response to that statement Schlafly said: “It sounds like Donald Trump is the only one who has any fight in him. He will fight for the issues that we really care about and are very hot at the present time, such as the immigration issue. I don’t see anyone else who’s eager to fight.”
Glenn Beck raising a German ballot to compare Trump to Hitler
A schism is occurring in the conservative movement, with outlets like the National Review, Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, and his associated legion of hosts such as Dana Loesch and Mark Levin descrying Donald Trump as a phony, a make believe christian, and even Adolf Hitler reincarnate.
Yesterday, Glenn Beck came out against other conservative outlets such as The Drudge Report, Infowars and Breitbart for “conspiring and shilling for Trump” after The Drudge Report ran a photoshopped image of Sen. Macro Rubio:
Beck has declared that he won’t even use The Drudge Report anymore, even though his site receives large amounts of traffic whenever Matt Drudge decides to run one of their articles.
Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars said today that Glenn Beck’s media outlet is falling apart, noting that since he began his campaign against Trump in defense of Cruz, the Blaze’s unique visits have halved.
