PhyllisSchlafly

Phyliss Schlafly is the founder and president of The Eagle Forum, and worries about Muslim immigrants “bringing in a bunch of wives who will now go on our welfare”. She has a history of making bigoted comments.

On Schlafly’s October 15th, 2014 Eagle Forum Live radio program, Islamophobe David Horowitz said of Ferguson, Mo. protesters that “if you’re white, you’re guilty; that’s the attitude”. Horowitz and Schlafly concluded by determining “There’s no community that’s more racist in America than the black community. And everybody knows it, but nobody will say it.”

In a 2013 radio interview, Schlafly stated “Polygamy is against our law. We’ve brought in thousands of Muslims – I want to know if they made them sign a pledge to assure they’re not bringing in a bunch of wives who will now go on our welfare.”

An April 2012 article titled “Islamic Indoctrination in Textbooks” included Schafly’s assertion that “The books often falsely claim that Islam is tolerant of Jews and Christians” The piece relies heavily on data provided by ACT! For America.
