Phyllis Schlafly: Republicans Are ‘Fools’ to Back ‘Any Kind of Amnesty’

Katie McHugh, Daily Caller, March 6, 2014

Eagle Forum president and conservative author Phyllis Schlafly condemned GOP leadership efforts to compromise with Democrats on immigration, telling her audience that Republicans are “fools” to back any kind of deal that includes citizenship for illegal immigrants.

“Republicans are fools to to support any kind of amnesty, or to import foreigners who will support big government and big spending,” she said during a blunt speech at The National Security Action in Washington, D.C. “Why is anyone surprised that three fourths of Hispanics and Asians voted for Obama during the 2012 election? . . . Sixty-nine percent of immigrants support Obamacare.”


Immigrants tend to vote Democratic not because they’re withdrawing their support from Republicans until the GOP works with Democrats on immigration reform, but because they benefit from generous social programs, she added.

“They’re not for amnesty,” she said. “They’re for the goody handouts of Democratic party. . . [A]mnesty is suicide for the conservative movement and the Republican party.”


But Schlafly saved her most scathing remarks for Republican supporters of immigration reform: “Everything they’re saying is just a complete lie.”

Requiring illegals to repay back taxes is “the laugh of the day—a complete farce.”

“Of course the aliens will never learn English before they get amnesty,” while their background checks will be as thorough “as the Boston bombers,” she added heatedly.

  • This is pretty much a carbon copy of the speech she gave to CPAC last year on the immigration issue. Except this year, notice she didn’t give this speech at CPAC.

    CPAC is becoming as bad as NR when it comes to purges. So much so that Krispy Christie got standing ovations when he spoke today. CPAC started out a long time ago to combat people like Christie.

    • Jesse James

      The GOP elite are just using the old communist controlled opposition tactic to divide and weaken the conservative Tea Party insurrection. Who in their right mind considers the backstabbing, Obama hugging Christie a conservative? I expect that what is really going to make them crazy and wish for the “good old days” of the tame Tea Party is when the worsening economy and the more and more open persecution of whites by the government and both political parties results in an angry white backlash demanding explicit representation of white middle and working class interests.

      • I’ve been doing some thinking on that.

        The only way the TPM is a real threat to the RINO establishment is that the TPM is almost universally opposed to and mobilizing against amnesty and open borders.

        Outside of that, I can’t really figure out why the RINO establishment really has such an axe to grind with the TPM. In many of the issues which we think crucial, the RINO establishment and the TPM are on the same side. I’ve said it here myself a few times in the past, that nobody ruined the TPM, it came to the game flawed because it was and still is nothing more than louder more militant lamestream conservatives who actually believe in lamestream conservatism and want it implemented, in contrast to the typical RINO establishmentarian, who uses lamestream conservatism as an election season prop to get votes then forgets all about it as he’s shoveling money and power to one Republican-oriented special interest after another.

        A genuine nationalist movement would give them heart attacks.

        • Jesse James

          You are exactly right about the Tea Party, I attended one rally and my brother and his wife went to the first big DC rally. It was funny really, I remember thinking these folks don’t know how to raise hell. Polite, politically correct to a fault, obedient, self policing and they even pick up their own trash. Definitely white, middle class responsible folk. The UN Agenda 21 plan that is being implemented by our national leaders (Democrat and Republican) is going to result in real economic destruction and social chaos. The generation of young white men that are coming up now still believe in the progressive dogma they have been taught but they are the ones who will suffer the most and they are going to be underemployed and angry as they slowly realize that their future has been sold out and they are already replaced by the diversity they were taught to genuflect to and sooner or later they will get really angry and they will have much less to lose than our generation does.

          • Einsatzgrenadier

            Thanks to massive 3rd world immigration, the US is now on the road to Sarajevo. We can only hope that the next generation of white men who must endure this mess will be able to salvage something from the wreckage. A resurgence of white racial consciousness on a gargantuan scale is the only way to save America and the white race from certain physical destruction.

          • Ella

            Who will train them?

          • Jesse James

            Our enemies train us everyday through their hatred of us and their efforts to impoverish us they teach us to hate.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            We will have to train ourselves, because we will have to learn the tactics, strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities of our enemies. We also need to learn what weapons they have and how they use them to best effect against them. Ever war, every insurgency has it’s own particulars that do not apply anywhere else.

          • Sick of it

            The understanding of war is easy to gain over time. The will to do what needs to be done is what our people lack the most. They would fold and let their own kin be slaughtered on average. Why do so many give up so easily today? Are they not even capable of dreams anymore?

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            When whites children die of starvation or loved ones killed by our enemies, rest assured they will find the will to annihilate their enemies and take back what is rightfully theirs at the same time. The less we have to lose, the more reason we have to fight.

          • Just because you’re polite, self-policing and you pick up your own trash doesn’t mean you can’t be politically militant.

            The TPM largely consists of polite militants, but the cause to which they are militant, lamestream conservatism, is mostly inadequate in the face of our real problems (some of those problems they don’t even think are problems). All that can be said for lamestream conservatism is that it shaves the most vicious and cruel excesses of the left.

            During breaks at the salt mines, CPAC was on a lot of the TVs in my view. One of the speakers was some mulatto man who said that he was “one of CPAC’s rising stars under 40,” and he didn’t look that much younger than 40. Too, he proudly claimed the mantle of some such TPM organization. In his speech, he basically said that black kids drop out of school because the public schools that they have to go to because those evil Democrats won’t give them “school choice” have unionized teachers.

            Okaybut…do the public schools in white areas having unionized teachers explain the high white dropout rate? (/Sarc)

            When AR has its conference next month, you’ll get more sense and sanity out of the first word spoken by the first speaker than you will have all weekend at CPAC.

          • RisingReich

            Less to lose with everyday. Makes my heart a bit lighter.

          • Nancy Thomas

            Yes, you get it. Both “sides” have been bought off by the NWO and open borders is the MAIN issue to destroy white people forever.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          The Tea Party was formed for one reason. Seniors saw Obamacare was going to divert Medicare funds to Medicaid. It was a senior citizen revolt, which is why they are polite and averse to confrontation.

          • Sick of it

            The old folks had other bones to pick with Washington, but they backed down. They were at the White House. They could have ended this mess.

        • RisingReich

          Well, apparently anything ‘Nationalist’ is just labeled evil Nazi raycis.

          • NoMosqueHere

            No, Nationalism is not necessarily labeled Nazi, except perhaps by communists. But when you “Heil Hiter” and promote Nazi ideology, don’t complain when you’re labeled a Nazi.

          • RisingReich

            You prove my point. Semantics of the enemy.
            Check your brainwashing. You immediately think I hate being labeled ‘nazi’ or whatever.

            Whites need to drop the petty differences. NoMosqueHere is a slogan I can get behind.

            Lets start there.

          • Nancy Thomas

            Rising is correct…whites are not allowed to have ANY voice whatsoever or they are naziswhowanttokillsixmillionjews.
            Nationalism is the SCARIEST thing on earth for those who must not be named.

          • stewball

            Oh gosh. You can name me. I’m proud of my heritage.
            There are 280,000 Jews in England and 3 million Muslim. Soon Christianity will die.

        • Nancy Thomas

          You don’t understand that those who must not be named see open borders as THE way to disempower us FOREVER, and they are right.

        • blight14

          A great example is when Ron Paul DARES to suggest that perhaps sending billions to the 51st state isn’t in the best interest of the United States…….he would have received less scorn if he’d said the moon was made of green cheese……

          • Sick of it

            His foreign policy made the most sense, as we would no longer be involved in conflicts which waste our blood and treasure. Of course the pseudo-conservative war hawks pushed on through, as usual.

      • Nancy Thomas

        i will not vote for fatty, or for ANY of the GOP who favor amnesty, including Paul, Bush….and Cruz wants to double legal immigration so he’s off the list too. Jeff Sessions is the only one I’d vote for.

    • Conservatives need to abandon the Republican Party and find another party more in line with their thinking. The GOP has proven time after time that it will not tolerate true conservatives among its ranks, having become just a lighter version of the Democrats. The fact that they are pushing amnesty so hard demonstrates conclusively that preserving America’s founding stock and cultural heritage means nothing to them.

    • MarcB1969

      Phyllis Schlafey was relegated to the wilderness of the conservative movement way back in the early 1990’s. They did not like that her conservatism (and economic nationalism) was closer to that of Pat Buchanan than that of the Bush traitors.

  • haroldcrews

    Being foolish never stopped the Republicans before.

    But instead of being foolish it probably indicates that the GOP has a somewhat hidden agenda being driven by a small of influence peddlers within and without the party. It’s more likely that an institution is being deceptive as to its purposes than it is engaging in suicidal behavior.

    • Katherine McChesney

      The questionaires that I get from the GOP are angry and and almost bullying. They all but accuse us of being Democrats. There is a slightly threatening tone about them that disgusts me. They’re also asking for large sums of money. I just make copious notes in red across the form telling them that they are traitors to the party and they are just another arm of the Democrat party.

    • Nancy Thomas

      The leadership has been given bags of money from those who must not be named. Amnesty IS suicide, but short run they don’t care, they only think about the fact that they get to be in office and then they will probably die before whites become a minority and are slaughtered en mass.

  • Manaphy

    “Republicans are fools to to support any kind of amnesty, or to import foreigners who will support big government and big spending”

    Congratulations Phyllis Schafly for winning the Captain Obvious Award of 2014. Also, welcome aboard the EvilNeoNaziWhiteSupremacistJewHatingImmigrantHatingKluKluxKlan machine. Be prepared to get called a “racist” “intolerant” “xenophobe” by the usual suspects.

    • David Ashton

      Somehow I don’t think she will care.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Does she have tribal membership?

        • Her maiden name is Stewart. I was always under the impression that she was Irish Catholic, but Stewart is Scottish, and almost all Scots are Protestant. Next time I see her, I’ll get the right answer from the horse’s mouth.

          You may have heard of the micro-brew beer Schlafly. Yes, that comes from St. Louis, but not Phyllis’s side. The other side of her family, the Schlaflys related to her husband, are all left wing kooks, including the people that brew the beer. The late news is that Phyllis is dragging the beer in-laws into court over trademark issues relating to the Schlafly name.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            She does a good job thumping the Feminists from time to time.
            I always thought that was brave and commendable.

        • David Ashton

          She is a Roman Catholic of a largely traditional variety. I don’t think her ancestry was vetted by the SS or recent DNA tests, and I don’t think it matters. I judge people by what they do and say, and nobody fits every white nationalist criterion in that respect.

          The best is often the enemy of the good.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            If I am not ‘one of theirs’ I am their enemy or their victim. They choose if I snooze. If others see me as their enemy, I should protect myself. How do you think European America got in this pickle to begin with? It wasn’t what we believed, it is what our enemies did. It isn’t me, it’s them. Their SS vetted me as an enemy.

          • David Ashton

            Not “my” people.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I guess you didn’t read the link.

          • David Ashton

            I shall try again to get it on screen.

    • Jesse James

      Phyllis has reached that grand stage of life where you no longer have to give a damn what anyone thinks. It is one of the very few benefits of living to a ripe old age.

      • Well, it’s not that. She’s been singing that tune for a very long time.

        One of her career-long flaws, though, is that she gets some very fundamental issues right (immigration, economic nationalism aka opposing free trade), but then her star struck self hangs around and endorses people who are anything but immigration patriots and economic nationalists. The most recent example was 2010 in Texas, when she endorsed Rickroller Perry for another term as Governor over his two Republican opponents that year. Perry is free trade open borders all the way. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, while a free trader, had something of a decent immigration record when she was in the Senate, so my vote would have been for her if I had one.

        That and another one of her constant flaws was because she married a rich guy, and never really had to work for a living so that her household could pay bills, she never truly got the working wife who had to work. She just assumed that every married woman had a husband who made enough money so that she could be an activist soccer mom type. She could never connect with the out of necessity working wife.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          She is indeed one of the many bubble-dwellers like Steinem who want to tell you how the real world really is, but she’s still anti-feminist. Camille Paglia takes a few whacks at the Feminists, too. The Feminista were the bane of my existence at the defense contractor where I worked for 10 years. Clueless terrorists.

      It is racial, cultural, economic, societal and political suicide as well.

    • newscomments70

      The feds want to double legal immigration as well. Millions of immigrants from the Middle East and Africa will dwarf the Mexican illegal problem that we have. Our malls are full of women in hijabs. I wonder if there will be a bomb during the Christmas rush. I miss the Mexicans.

  • 2eRep

    GOP is just another arm of the Obama diversity scam. She will be labeled a racist.

  • Erasmus

    Schlafly is 100% correct. Any one who says he’s a conservative but supports amnesty, (and that’s what immigration reform really is), is either a fool or a liar, and I would extend that to the Bushes, Grover Norquist, George Will, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, John McCain, etc.

    Better to win half the country and keep it under the rule of law, as we let the rest go their own way with open borders, every type of marriage a person can dream up and cradle to grave socialism than to surrender the entire country to the left-wing tyranny of the “progressives.”

  • “Republicans are fools…” And they are liars and traitors in this white man’s eyes. Why bother with them if they kiss the butts of their corporatist elites at the expense of the white middle and working class. I am not a fool. They tricked me once, but not again.

    • Ella

      They’ll continue to drain our wealth.

  • Pelagian

    If the Republicans draw a line in the sand on Amnesty, it will run all the big business types/libertarians out of the party. This could get me interested in politics again.

  • Luca

    Anyone who supports amnesty is a fool, not just Republicans. They are just the biggest fools.

  • RisingReich

    It’s suicide of more than just a useless, traitorous political Party, but who is splitting hairs at this point?

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Soviet-controlled eastern Europe was a paradise on earth compared to what modern America has become. At least they weren’t being ethnically cleansed by their own governments.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Not true, the Soviets exterminated tens of millions of Slavs, and now one out of six in Russia are Muslims. Not only Muslims, but descendants of the likes of Genghis and Kublai Khan who wipe out entire cities. Descendants of the likes of the Muslim Tartars, whom Ivan the Terrible taught a terrible lesson by cornering them in Kazan and putting almost ALL of them to the sword. It was true immigration was non-existent, but you would not want to live in a society where just about anything you do could result in you being shot in the head in a dingy KGB cell or sent to a Gulag to die.

    • Pelagian

      And perverts didnt parade around at high noon in jock straps simulating anal intercourse, influencing children and disgusting the rest of us.

  • Bossman

    The USA needs immigration reform. The government should end chain migration. Undocumented immigrants can always leave and re-enter the proper way. The way the system is now set up, nobody knows when someone leaves the country.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Closing the borders and repatriating all 3rd world immigrants is the only kind of immigration reform the US needs.

      • Ella

        With the demands of lobbyist groups, it will never happen as pro-corporations and social-interest groups continue to keep open the borders.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        The only way to do that is FORCE, a job I would be willing to do if I was younger and stronger, and able to use my fists when an invader unwisely resists being shown the door.

    CPAC is for the birds. I’m surprised they didn’t sing hosannas to MLK and Nellie Mandela at this year’s conference. At any rate Sheldon Adelson and his kinsmen are increasingly bankrolling top Republicans with the goal of remaking the party as a minority coddling, race neutral (for whites), center-left party that is steadily becoming as hostile to the shrinking white majority as CPUSA.

    Both CPAC and the Tea Party cling to the false hope and belief that conservative principles can transcend race and make a functioning, first world nation out of the multiracial pigsty that we have become. These people are leading us to our doom.

  • Can you believe that the CofCC used to have a presence at CPAC? You can probably already figure out why it no longer does.

    As far as political parties, I think the easier path to genuinely nationalist policies isn’t the creation of another political party, but the abolition of political parties.

    • ATBOTL

      That doesn’t make any sense. We don’t have the power to abolish political parties, but we can form our own party to contest elections like nationalists everywhere else do.

      • Except that’s far easier to do in political cultures and systems that are conducive to multiple political parties. In a parliamentary system that uses some form of proportional representation, it’s worth the effort to form an explicitly or implicitly nationalist political party.

        Meanwhile, here, while neither circumstance has high odds of happening, abolishing political parties has a better chance of happening than a successful non-R/D nationalist party does. For what I’m thinking, taking away the filters of political parties, most voters, (and there would be fewer voters), would vote on the basis of their best interests, and as a result, the universe of elected politicians would be more in tune with their constituents and not at all subservient to a political party, since political parties would not exist. Which means the typical party-less elected white politician would tend to the populist-nationalist.

  • Home run, Phyllis.

    Granted that electoral politics is futile, stacked and thoroughly ridiculous, I can’t help wondering what it would be like to have some confident, well spoken young man come along, preferably of reasonable wealth, with a dash of charisma and a relaxed sense of humor, within a very conservative White congressional district, and run an unapologetically White campaign, stressing such issues as ‘affirmative action,’ exporting manufacturing jobs and importing the Third World. Recall that Duke once did pretty well, even with his youthful Klan membership hanging around his neck. First, it would be entertaining. Second, It could be a national focal point for exposing the whole increasingly creaky Bazarro World that the Left has cobbled together. Finally, such a campaign, including the undoubtedly brutal attacks by the media and various anti-White organizations, might wake up and energize thousands of young people across the land.

  • WR_the_realist

    Phyllis Schlafly still has far more sense than any of the thousands of professional feminists who hate her. And more sense than half the Republicans in congress.

    I do get a hoot out of that fantasy of illegals paying back taxes. The IRS has no record of how much they earned and has said as much. So there are no discernible back taxes to pay.

  • scutum

    The GOP does not represent conservatives or traditional American values. The only difference between the GOP and the DEMs is their rhetoric and the special interests they represent. Neither party represents the interests of the people of the United States. The problem is that a very large segment of the European American population of the US is unaware of this fact. They have bought into the rhetoric of both parties which is how the elites keep the public unaware of the real issues confronting this country. What we have in Washington DC is very similar to the system of the old Soviet Union, the only difference being that our elites are more suttle in how they oppress us.
