PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY: RUBIO “A LACKEY,” AND AN “ESTABLISHMENT AGENT”
We don’t know much about Phyllis Schlafly … but our friends in Washington, D.C. tell us she’s a “gold standard conservative” as well as one of the founders and principal architects of the modern conservative movement in America.
Sort of like the “Dowager Countess of Conservatism,” if you’re a fan of Downton Abbey.
Anyway, Schlafly was also one of the early supporters of Marco Rubio‘s successful bid for the United States Senate six years ago.
“When Marco Rubio ran for the Senate in Florida, I think I was the first one to endorse him,” Schlafly told WND (who referred to her as a “legendary conservative activist”).
“I made a trip down to Florida in 2009 just for the purpose of helping him,” she added.
Rubio got a lot of help … and wound up winning a seat in the U.S. Senate in 2010 as a result of it.
But then he
“Once he got elected, he betrayed us all,” she said. “He said he was against amnesty and against the establishment. And once he got in, right away, he became an agent of the establishment. And now, of course, he’s big for amnesty and letting all the illegal immigrants in. He betrayed us a number of times on that issue.”
Schlafly added Rubio was “a lackey for the establishment now.”
“There’s no question they’re picking (him) as Plan B – or maybe Plan C in this election cycle, or whatever we’re on now – but he certainly is an establishment agent,” she said.
We agree …
This website has consistently opposed Rubio – not because of all the rumors circling about him – but because he’s a crony capitalist who views liberty with contempt. We also oppose him because he supports energy tax hikes and mindless imperialism – and because he cast the deciding vote in support of U.S. president Barack Obama‘s trade bill.
Oh, and as Schlafly said – he’s two-faced on immigration, too.
