Long Time Conservative Icon Phyllis Schlafly Endorses Trump, Goes Nutty On Baseball

I’m not sure what it is about Donald Trump that has caused many supposed Conservatives to go batty. Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Ben Carson, among others, and now

(Daily Caller) Veteran conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump Friday in St. Louis.

Schlafly told the crowd, “I asked him to stand by the Republican platform because we have the best conservative platform we’ve ever had and he endorses it. He will stand by it. He is a real conservative and I ask you to support him.”

The crowd erupted with cheers as she continued saying, “I’m confident that Donald Trump will appoint judges like [Justice Antonin] Scalia.”

Schlafly added that “we’ve been following the losers for so long,” but that would change with Trump.

For all we know, Donald Trump could make a good or even great president if he managed to win the general election. He could also end up as bad as Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and Warren Harding. The problem is, Trump’s record is a mixed bag of trail mix. He’s all over the place. He’s not a conservative, and, personally, I’m tired of posers, fakes, fools, and squishes claiming they’re conservatives. Most have no idea what it means. Someone should ask Trump to define what it means to be an American Conservative.

Fortunately, Schlafy is super concerned with baseball (via Twitchy)

I’m not sure about insane, but, it is utterly wacko

This foreign influx into our National Pastime may help explain why our youth is abandoning baseball. Youth who play baseball have declined by more than 40% since 2000, and some communities where baseball was once booming now struggle to fill teams. Television ratings for World Series games are less than half what they were three decades ago.

Baseball owners are doing the same thing that big corporations do – bring in foreign labor to take jobs that should go to Americans. American baseball players are better, as the awards and Hall of Fame prove, but perhaps baseball owners think that foreign players are cheaper and easier to control.

It is time to cut off visas for foreign baseball players, and return our National Pastime to Americans.

I’ll write what Liberals are probably thinking: this is the bat guano insane extension of an out of control belief in reducing illegal and legal immigration. There’s a big difference between people from around the world using work visas to take the jobs of Americans (see Disney, for one) and the best baseball players in the world playing baseball in MLB. This is going down an extreme, nativist road. I’m no big fan of David Freddoso, but, he had a good point when he tweeted “The Conservative movement didn’t just die. It had bad leaders that strangled it.”

Maybe it’s time to rebrand, much like liberals did in calling themselves “Progressives.” I’d like to use the original name, classic liberals, but, liberalism now has a bad connotation. How about “Constitutionalists”?
