Above all, Schlafly recognized the threat posed by the nation-breaking immigration unleashed by the 1965 Immigration Act, which so many of that generation (she was born in 1924, Buckley in 1925) failed to do.
I only once had the honor of sharing a podium with Schlafly, at Pat Buchanan's American Cause conference in 2009. Gloom about Obama's election was then unconfined, but she wisely commented that things had looked at least as bad after Ford's defeat in 1976. Not for the first or last time, I felt she had taken the words out of my mouth—surely the greatest compliment a writer can give.
VDARE.com commented frequently and admiringly on her work—see here.
Grief at Phyllis Schlafly's passing extends very far beyond her impressively large family, but to them especially we extend heartfelt condolences.
