This chapter covers McIntire’s polemics and protests against the counterculture, feminism and gay rights, judicial activism, détente, and religious discrimination in the 1970s. Also covered are the ever-closer cooperation between McIntire and conservative Roman Catholics such as Phyllis Schlafly, and it is argued that the New Right–New Christian Right alliance of the latter 1970s was built on preexisting networks, most of which had been built around McIntire over several decades. Furthermore, this chapter establishes from new sources that Jerry Falwell was deeply and from very early on influenced by McIntire and that he continued to fund McIntire’s operations even after the Moral Majority was founded and came in for criticism from several key separatist fundamentalist leaders, McIntire included.
