Phyllis Schlafly: ‘Many Americans’ Moving Out of Marriage Equality States in Protest - AUDIO

Phyllis schlaflyOn her latest radio commentary, right wing blowhard Phyllis Schlafly made the baseless claim that there is an ongoing exodus of anti-gay Americans away from marriage equality states because of pro-LGBT laws.

Said Schlafly:

“…many Americans are dissenting with their feet, by moving away from same-sex marriage states and into the many states that continue to recognize the value of marriage as being between only one man and one woman.” 

Right Wing Watch quips, “The liberal media must be covering up this mass exodus from marriage equality states, because we haven’t heard a single story of someone doing this."

  1. On the other hand I know couples who have moved from non-equality states (Texas, Colorado) to my state (Washington) specifically because they can get married and have their marriage respected here.

  4. Phylis Schafly offers no factual support for this stupid claim. She's full of crap.

  5. I moved from Wisconsin to CT. One reason was the anti-gay political climate there. Another reason, was a job. When you are the subject of discrimination, you move. When some other group is affected, you're not nearly as motivated to leave. Her contention is highly implausible. Cue the rolling eyes...

  6. I suppose the fact that > 50% of Washington, Maine, and Maryland voters approved same-sex marriage in 2012 is also a made-up fantasy of the liberal media and the liberal legislatures of those states. It must all be a giant conspiracy.

    And quite frankly, if someone is so against gay rights that they are willing to leave a state, then by all means, please leave :)

  7. Yeah, like the thousand who left the army after DADT repeal, oh wait, that didn't happen.

  8. Their must have been a lot of anticipatory migration too, because migration to the South and Texas for jobs and low cost of living has been a phenomenon since before marriage equality.

  9. Is this dinosaur still around? Didn't she got the way of the Do-Do bird and Anita Bryant?

  10. Name one couple that's moved. One. Please. That's all we ask. One name.

  11. If in fact this is so, well, they are not moving out fast enough for my money!!!

  12. Can't wait for marriage equality for the entire US, then that old hag can move to Russia.

  13. This from a woman with a gay son.

  14. Oh really? I don't live in US, but if this movement would be real I am sure it would have made headlines here and elsewhere. Delusional poor sad woman.

  15. Phyllis should gather together all the bigots like herself and move to Nigeria. If Nigeria is too black for them, which is probably the case, they can go to Saudi Arabia, where they are only sort of light brown, but equally as bigoted. She might want to leave her gay son at home, because her type there may want to stone him to death.

  16. Phylis: In the spirit of John Hagee -- "If you don't like marriage equality, then LEAVE! There are planes leaving every hour, on the hour. GET ON ONE!"

    (All said in the spirit of your pal John Hagee)

  17. This story is the funniest thing I have seen today.

    This woman is hilarious! How crazy is she?????

  18. Anyone who would upend their entire life by moving to another state because they are so incensed by a law that has no effect whatsoever on them personally is truly crazy.

  19. Yeah right Phyllis, just like you have moved from reality into Fantasyland!

  20. I thought she'd died years ago. Lightning-bolt incident.

  22. ADAMTH - why a Plane?? - Im sure she has a perfectly well tuned Flying Broom!

  23. She has gay friends too. And black friends. And is not a bigot.

  24. Phyllis-has your gay son moved?
    You really need to join the American Tevangelicals and spend more time in Africa -Nigeria would be a good place to start- oh that's right -they aren't your kind of people.

  25. When your audience consists of True Believers you don't need facts, or even the assumption of reality. For example, she chooses to believe in an alternate reality where her son John isn't a big 'mo. Her flying monkeys play along with that delusion so she's free to throw stones from her glass house where her 50-something-year-old homo son lives with her (fact!) in Alton, Illinois. Reality? Not a problem! Facts? What are those?
