Gavin McInnes: Lena Dunham killed Phyllis Schlafly
Gavin McInnes writes:
Back in the 1960s, Schlafly opposed the ERA because she recognized that it only purported to be about equality when, ultimately, it was about sabotage.
While Dunham’s book vacillated between lying and bragging about rape, Schlafly’s A Choice Not an Echo changed America forever. In it, she argued that presidents should not be grandfathered in like Republican governor Nelson Rockefeller expected to be at the time. This permanently changed the GOP, led to Ronald Reagan’s presidency, and is a big part of why we like Trump so much—he’s no echo. (…)
One is a silly girl and the other was an icon, but the shocking truth is that both have wielded about the same influence on American society. They’ve generated roughly the same jobs and money in the economy and quite possibly will have had the same political influence. Remember, it was bitter single women who got Obama elected and Dunham was part of that.
