Just thought this was very interesting to see.
Isn't that from one of the candidates?
Ha, that's what I was thinking

Im thinking scam from the left.
That's messed up. Who in their right mind rubs fresh bread on the wall to clean it?
It's not. However, the NAOWS wasn't entirely evil in their ideas...I don't think. I believe their idea behind being anti-sufferage was that being able to vote would prevent women from doing their duties in communities, such as educating the children about politics, and that it would decrease their abilities to reform society - based on the idea it would separate them - not all or even many women would vote, and the ones that did would be less woman-power to work together in the home to reform society.

Well aware NAOWS was a real group. Keep in mind the Dems also started the KKK.
I am so tired of hearing this. Modern Day Democrats and War Democrats from back then are very, very different things. Just as Republicans from back then and Modern Republicans are very, very different things. The names of the parties themselves mean nothing when comparing then to now.
But this is a really interesting thread. I've never seen anything about this, so it's pretty neat to me. For some reason it's a part of history I always skip over.
Ild be tired of it too, if I where a member of a party that actively keeps minorities down and dependent, while accusing the other party of being racist.
Todays war against women is most publicly perpetrated by women on women.
To be fair, Nathaniel Bedford Forest himself resigned from the KKK and said that it had turned into something entirely different from what he intended.
The only difference between the two parties now is . . . wait . . . let me think for a minute.
Pretty much, do you want the red KoolAid or the blue KoolAid.
