The country has lost a political icon today. Phyllis Schlafly passed away at the age of 92. Her time as a conservative activist spanned an astounding 70 years. In the 1970s, she led the fight against the Equal Rights Amendment, first proposed in 1923, because, among other things, it would have opened women up to be eligible to be drafted as well as made unconstitutional single sex schools and activities such as Girl Scouts.
Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972. The group describes itself as “Conservative and pro-family men & women participating in the process of self-government and public policy making to make America a land of individual liberty, respect for family integrity, public virtue, and private enterprise.”
She was a loud voice for social conservatism even as the pressure was on to abandon social issues. Schlafly understood the way the culture war was tied into politics and fought strongly against progressivism and liberalism for decades. Most recently, Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for president. Trump issued a statement about the loss of Schlafly.
“Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the ‘kingmakers’ on behalf of America’s workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty.”
While the country, especially those in the conservative movement, are mourning the death of Schlafly, who passed away surrounded by her family in her home, the erroneously self-described “loving left” are celebrating the death of a woman who was not only a conservative icon but also someone’s mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Here are some of the most disgusting examples of the sick, perverted Left rejoicing in the death of Phyllis Schlafly.
This disgusting excuse for a human being openly celebrated the death of Schlafly.

Another “loving lefty” wished Schlafly had never even been born.
@AP Too bad she was even born. I'm sure that she did a lot of damage in her long life.

“The Great One,” Mark Levin, paid homage to the life of Schlafly on Facebook upon learning about her passing.
Indeed, it is a sad day for those who believe in liberty.
May Phyllis Schlafly rest in peace in the arms of our Lord.
