In her March 1976 Report, Phyllis Schlafly called on Americans to do a “moral inventory” of the criminal justice system. She pointed to a staggering rise in drug crimes, home-grown terrorism, murders, and rape. Today, America finds herself in perhaps even worse shape that she did in 1976. Thankfully, Phyllis Schlafly stood ready as ever to give us the solutions then that we can still employ today.
As Phyllis saw it, the foundation of the rising crime rates was a “soft on crime” attitude that let criminals know they could literally get away with murder. Phyllis said, “It ought to be self-evident that most crimes are committed by [career] criminals, and that decent, law-abiding people have been betrayed.” Phyllis believed that a “tough on crime” attitude would not only solve the problem; it would also be politically expedient. Some things should not have to be controversial. When we’re faced by violent street gangs like MS-13 who boast 30,000 members and commit countless acts of violence, there shouldn’t be a question about taking a tough stance.
Nevertheless, the man who has the power to stop MS-13 is constantly under attack for trying to do so. And contrary to what you may think, he’s not under attack from mafia bosses and gangsters, but from liberal fear mongers. The man to whom I refer is none other than Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a tireless patriot and a longtime friend and ally of Phyllis Schlafly. He said “I have a message for the gangs that target our young people: We are targeting you. We are coming after you.” Attorney General Sessions is just the man we need to crack down on these violent gangs and make America safe again.
The only thing standing between him and that goal is those on the Left who would protect illegal alien gang members above innocent people, including other illegal aliens! Heartless leftists don’t speak for the average American. Phyllis Schlafly knew, we must be more vocal than ever in our support for General Sessions and for the safe streets she fought to see in every American city and town. With Phyllis’s wisdom and a conservative administration, we can make great things happen. It’s up to us to stand behind our conservative friends and see these fights through to victory.
