    Yes, Indeed. What is most interesting about this issue is that these racists, these 'women of the klan' practiced feminism and were heavily supported and promoted by feminists of the time. The book that I mention in this thread talks about how these people encouraged women to vote in order to minimize the impact of black vote after african Americans obtained the right to vote in the US. It's feminism with a racist spin.
    In my view the "Klan", "SJW-ism", "Left-ism", "Feminism"-- they all come from the same dark place. There might even be a kernel of altruism under it all, believe it or not. But it is very quickly subsumed by the collective and trampled underfoot in the mob-ish "tear-it-down" mentality that they all seem to have.

    However, that said, there ARE plenty of legitimate pictures on the web of "the women of the Klan"-- engaged in various activities. They were definitely there and are still today. It's not just a man-thing.

    Thanks for the correction Kosh. This is a great example of how lies do more harm to a cause than good.

    I want to emphasize that I did not get this picture from the book but the internet. It is purely my mistake.

    Source While a lot of people here may be "somewhat less than impressed" by Snopes as a source, especially given how much they've gotten wrong lately, at least politically, it's quite a fascinating read and in this case, they really appear to have done their research. As far as the "Nazi" salute goes, it wasn't adopted by the Nazi party until the 1930's while Margaret Sanger spoke to the KKK in 1926. Before then, it was actually the official salute of... believe it or not... the Boy Scouts of America.

    A short and very insightful read into Women of the Klu Klax Klan and its influence, support and promotion by feminists of the time. Highly recommend this book. Its available on Amazon as an ebook for £4.

    The picture below is an interesting one that speaks volumes. Its relevant to this book. Its of feminist icon and pro-abortion activist and planned parenthood founder Margret Sanger giving a speech to the WKKK as members of the movement give her the Nazi salute...you cannot make this stuff up.
