Eagle Forum: Dip In White Births "Not A Good Thing"

Responding to a New York Times article stating that white births are no longer a majority in the U.S., the Eagle Forum, founded by Phyllis Schlafly (left), states that the country will be under siege by immigrants with undesirable characteristics, including voting Democratic (a symptom of not sharing American values). Inexplicably, the right wing group's blog, in an article written by Schlafly's son Roger, criticizes the Times for reporting the trend and is incensed by a demographer's statement regarding "a surge that has created a very different looking America from the one of the 1950s, when the TV characters Ozzie and Harriet were a national archetype":

It is not a good thing. The immigrants do not share American values, so it is a good bet that they will not be voting Republican when they start voting in large numbers.

...The NY Times liberals seek to destroy the American family of the 1950s, as symbolized by Ozzie and Harriet. The TV characters were happy, self-sufficient, autonomous, law-abiding, honorable, patriotic, hard-working, and otherwise embodied qualities that made America great. In other words, the show promoted values that NY Times liberals despise.

Instead, the USA is being transformed by immigrants who do not share those values, and who have high rates of illiteracy, illegitimacy, and gang crime, and they will vote Democrat when the Democrats promise them more food stamps.

I have nothing nice to say about Phyllis and her beliefs and politics.

I recently found an old journal from 1973 where, at 19, I wrote a cheesy poem about the "browning" of America and I thought it was a natural progression that would happen through interracial marriage and some through immigrants coming to America. I thought it was good then and I haven't changed my mind yet.

Schaffley is on the wrong side of history.

Indeed, Morgan. The Eagle Forum appeals to racism, which is always on the wrong side of history.
