Phyllis Schlafly dropped a few interesting comments about Latinos and her thoughts on their relationship (or lack thereof) to the Republican Party.
In a recent phone interview with the Clay and Marty Show, the 88-year-old conservative activist said Latinos don’t understand core principles of U.S. government philosophy.
Host Marty Pay mentioned that Latinos should socially be Republican because they have the same “family value ethic we do, they feel the same way about the abortion issue.” The host asked Schlafly if the Republican party has dropped on the ball with the minority community.
“I don’t think they have Republican inclinations at all,” Schlafly said. “They’re running an illegitimacy rate that’s just about the same as the blacks are.”
Schlafly’s "brilliant" analysis continued on to say that Latinos “come from a country where they have no experience with limited government and the types of rights we have in the bill of rights.”
“They don’t understand that at all, you can’t even talk to them about what the Republican principle is,” she said.
