Tweet of the Day: Liberals (party of civility) dance on Phyllis Schlafly’s freshly dug grave

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly died Monday at the age of 92. So, did liberals, who love to lecture the Right on tolerance and civility, pause their nonstop hate fest against those who disagree with them? You gotta be kidding.

Twitter users couldn’t even wait for her body to grow cold before celebrating her death in enthusiastic fashion.

Author and journalist Mark Harris summed up Schlafly’s life by saying she made the world worse off, and then jetted off to the movies.

Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican took a similar tack, saying Schlafly had “squandered” her entire life.

Upworthy’s Parker Malloy had a similar perspective on the matter.

Jeb Lund of Rolling Stone was one of the most celebratory, bluntly saying Schlafly was the spawn of Satan and had gone to Hell to spend eternity with her master.

Popehat blogger Ugarles even expressed the hope that Schlafly had been murdered.

Dan Canon, an attorney who helped litigate the Obergefell v. Hodges case which legalized gay marriage nationwide, lamented that Schlafly hadn’t died earlier.

The New Republic, meanwhile, memorialized Schlafly by linking to a 2008 article where they labeled her “an immeasurable force for bad.”

Author and comedian Julie Klausner contrasted the presumably fortunate death of Schlafly with the unfortunate departure of Gene Wilder last week.
