The Hypocrisy of Phyllis Schlafly and How to Stop it
on April 4, 2008
Schlafly has certainly done her homework, and presents a number well-researched cases with attention to specifics. Certainly her career as an attorney gives her considerable insight into the judicial process.
However, her conclusions are flawed and filtered through her own bias, almost to the point of making it seem as if she has a vendetta against jurists who don't rule according to her own narrow viewpoint when they simply rule based on precedent and the letter of the law.
Her hypocrisy is that she believes that the only right way is her way, and would take away the freedoms of others in order to impose her own rigid definitions of protected speech, separtion of religion and state, and so on.
Certainly there are problem judges in this country, and some of her examples rightly point this out. But we can all take comfort in the fact that Schlafly is not a judge, else she would be at the top of the "Supremacist" list. And the way to stop her, is to stop buying her sad, short, overpriced books. Because taking away her right to author and sell them (as she has advocated doing to others in her books, columns, and newsletters) would be hypocritical.
