Adam Schnell - Domestic Violence Was Not Tolerated by Society in 19th Century America – 1893

NOTE: This article is one of countless old newspaper reports which demonstrate that the claim made by feminist professors, lawyers, journalists and government bureaucrats that domestic violence against women was tolerated by American society in the 19th century is, like so many other feminist claims, a bold faced lie.


FULL TEXT: [Struble, Iowa] – It does us good whenever we learn of a wife beater getting punished. News comes from Struble in Plymouth county [Iowa], of an assault and battery case that will probably cost a wife beater an eye. Adam Schnell, a well known farmer who lives near Struble, is noted for a bad temper and for abusing his wife and children. Recently his wife left him, since which time he has been getting more ill natured than ever. Only a short time ago he was arrested and brought before Justice Kain at LeMars for beating a son 15 years old. He blamed Justice Moran of Elgin township for having something to do with his wife's leaving, and last Friday decided to go to his place and do him up. Not finding the justice at home he followed him to Struble, where he encountered him in a saloon.

Mr. Moran surprised Schnell by knocking him down and walking all over him. The rest of the crowd in the saloon thought it a good time to punish Schnell for the way in which he had abused his family, and each one present took a kick at him. The physician who is attending Schnell thinks he will lose an eye as a consequence of his injuries. His wife has been asked to go home and take care of him, but says she will not as she is afraid of him. Right. Let him suffer.

• You have been told that before the rise of feminism in the 1960s that domestic violence against women was tolerated by society as acceptable behavior and was not taken seriously by police and the courts.

You have been lied to. The people who told you these lies were paid to tell them you. In most cases you paid your own money (taxes and tuition fees) to be lied to.

Here is one of countless pieces of evidence that demonstrate the truth.

• To see more eloquent, vivid evidence proving the lie and giving you the truth, see:

19th Century Intolerance Towards Domestic Violence

Treatment of Domestic Violence Against Women Before 1960this post collects cases classified by the form of punishment or sentencing (whether judicial or through community action)

No, the claim that laws created by males were for the benefit of males is false. Yes, the "Rule of Thumb" myth has been proven to be a marxist-feminist hoax, taking an ancient English common historical notation published in the 18th century and extrapolating it into unsupported claims that 18th and 20th century United States communities, courts and legislatures (laws on the books) were in agreement with the18th century historical notation (Blackstone).


“[O]nly since the 1970s has the criminal justice system begun to treat domestic violence as a serious crime, not as a private family matter.”

From the entry: “Domestic Violence” on encyclopedia.com

This claim has been proven to be false.
