On Friday, in an unprecedented editorial effort, conservative magazine National Review published a special edition bashing GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly later slammed National Review‘s efforts. Schlafly told radio host Laura Ingraham, “I don’t recognize National Review as the authority on conservatism.”
Living legend and conservative heroine Phyllis Schlafly slammed National Review for their efforts to take down GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump.
On Friday’s program of The Laura Ingraham Show, Schlafly declared, “I don’t recognize National Review as the authority on conservatism.” Schlafly blasted National Review for being more eager to fight Donald Trump than they are to fight the Republican donor-class, whom Schlafly calls the Kingmakers.
National Review is not the authentic conservative. You know, Bill Buckley was for giving away the Panama Canal, which was an enormous issue with conservatives. And in ten years they never wrote a single article about the Equal Rights Amendment, so they were no help against that. So I don’t recognize National Review as the authority on conservatism.
The 91 year-old Phyllis Schlafly helped launch the conservative movement and has been active in politics for more than one-fourth of American history.
In the interview, Schlafly explained that the problem with National Review is “just that they don’t want to fight the Establishment. And the Establishment– the people I call the Kingmakers– have been picking our candidates for so many years and they’ve given us a whole bunch of losers. And I think people want a fighter, and they also want to deal with the immigration problem. We don’t want to turn out like Germany. I thought the Germans were tough, but they’ve caved in to let people come in.”
