Eagle Forum: Minority Children Are Un-American Because They Don’t Have Conservative Beliefs
The Eagle Forum is one of the most dangerous conservative organizations in the country. Led by Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum opposes equal rights for women and promotes an anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-sex education, and anti-vaccination agenda that has contributed to the current wave of social conservative extremism in the Republican Party. And now we can add anti-immigrant and pro-racism to that list.
In response to a New York Times report on Census Bureau data showing that minority births out-paced the births of whites for the first time in America, a blog on the Eagle Forum website, criticized the liberal media, accusing the NY Times of bragging about the numbers. Eagle Forum then bashed minorities, writing that more minority births “is not a good thing” because they are “un-American” and won’t vote for Republicans when they get older. Here’s an excerpt:
“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.”
So Eagle Forum says that minorities, which includes African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and people of mixed heritage, are unpatriotic criminals who can’t read, don’t work, and live on food stamps. And Eagle Forum objects to minorities having babies because those babies will grow up to vote against Republicans. This is the kind of paranoia and hatred that has controlled the Republican Party for decades, and is just more proof that the Republican Party harbors racist feelings.
The American family, as depicted by Ozzie and Harriet in the 1950s never existed. There may have been some families like that, but the majority of American families, both then and now, are not. Eagle Forum is living in a fantasy world if they really think America should be like 1950s TV shows. Minorities are good for America. Minorities introduce new and fresh ideas, different cultures, and adds to the legacy of America as a melting pot, where people of all cultures and races can live free in peace. The folks at Eagle Forum seem to be too stupid to understand that when you hold an anti-immigrant and pro-racist agenda, of course minority groups are going to vote against you. Why would minorities vote against their own rights and interests? If conservatism is about keeping the white race large and in charge, who knows what kind of policies they could adopt to curb minority procreation. It’s a scary thought for minority groups to consider when stepping up to the voting booth this November.
