A Woman’s Place Is on the $20

Gail Collins, New York Times, March 20, 2015

You may have heard that there’s a movement afoot to kick Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Finally, we’ve got a current event that’s not depressing.

The only woman who has ever shown up on American paper currency–not counting Lady Liberty–is Martha Washington, who starred on an 1886 silver certificate. The fact that it was Martha adds insult to injury. She was an excellent first lady, but her exceptional fame is tied to the ancient idea that the greatest women were simply the ones married to the greatest men. (An alternative theory was that the greatest women were the mothers of the greatest men, and George Washington’s mother was equally celebrated, even though her son found her extremely irritating.)

Now, a website called “Women on 20s” has posted biographies of 15 notable women in American history and invited visitors to vote for a female face to put in Jackson’s place. The goal is to get the job done by the anniversary of women’s suffrage in 2020.

“Oh, my gosh! We’re just going crazy here,” said Susan Ades Stone, who has been running the project along with Barbara Ortiz Howard, a New York businesswoman. Things do sound satisfyingly hectic. The vote total recently passed 100,000; the overstressed website has gotten balky; and Stone, a journalist, has been on the phone so incessantly her husband has temporarily left home.

Amazing this idea hasn’t come up sooner. “Australians have a man on one side of each note and a woman on the other,” said Matthew Wittmann of the American Numismatic Society. “It’s pretty remarkable we can’t find a woman for any denomination.”

The U.S. Treasury hasn’t changed the faces on the bills since 1929, when Andrew Jackson elbowed out Grover Cleveland on the $20. Why, you may be asking yourself, did they pick Jackson? And why was Grover Cleveland there to begin with? Nobody seems to know.

Among the bills that are circulating now, the featured faces are all founding fathers (Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton, Franklin) plus Jackson, Lincoln and Ulysses Grant, who graces the $50 bill. “Women on 20s” picked Jackson to depose mainly because of his horrific history with Native Americans, although there’s also the rather blissful note that Jackson disapproved of paper currency.

The nominees for replacements were chosen from a list of 100 women by jurists who were asked to consider both achievement and obstacles overcome. That tends to weigh the choices toward political warriors–like Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger–rather than artists or athletes.

Recently The Times’s Room for Debate let experts name their favorites. Gloria Steinem picked Sojourner Truth, the escaped slave turned abolitionist orator. “I’m not sure Sojourner Truth would want to be on the $20 bill, but I would like her to be better known–by any means necessary,” she said.

{snip}

The Native American issue looms large when it comes to replacing Jackson, who sent the Cherokee Nation on the Trail of Tears. Lately, Stone said, she and Howard have decided that when they announce their three top vote-getters and ask people to pick a winner, they’re going to add a fourth option: Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation. (“People felt it would be poetic justice.”)

{snip}

Or maybe Elizabeth Jennings, the black New Yorker who sued the trolley company that tossed her off a whites-only car in 1854–a court action that led to the desegregation of mass transit in the city 100 years before Rosa Parks.

But then, of course, you don’t want to pass up Rosa Parks. There are thousands of possibilities. Nominate among yourselves.

    Maybe they’re trying to get Whites to boycott cash so they can more easily monitor every single transaction financial YT engages in, even if it’s a purchase of a pack of gum.

    The usual suspects have really kicked their puppets like this NY Times hack into high gear, most likely because they see Europe slipping away as it slides to the right. Destroying the US, harassing Whites as long as possible are two goals they most fervently strive for.

    The war on Whites is obvious to all but the most dim-witted. Rosa Parks? Elizabeth Jennings?

    • phorning

      I had never heard of Elizabeth Jennings before, but if she was a black woman who lived in the 1850, do they even have an accurate picture of her appearance?

      • Oil Can Harry

        Removing Jackson from our currency would be a travesty. Replacing him with an obscure affirmative action wench like Jennings or Wilma Mankiller would be even crazier.

        • guest

          That’s today’s America for you. Our country is now run by people with evil intentions who have such a very sick and mentally unhealthy obsession with diversity and trying to be “fair and equal” that they want to change everything about our country. Our history, our culture, our demographics, and now even the appearance of our money.

          The founders of our nation and the people who fought and died for our country would be spinning in their graves if they saw what a far-Left insane asylum our country has become.

        ““Women on 20s” picked Jackson to depose mainly because of his horrific history with Native Americans, although there’s also the rather blissful note that Jackson disapproved of paper currency.”

        Jackson disapproved of the establishment of a central bank, privately owned, which would issue the country’s currency. Alas, he lost that battle.

        • Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!

          • anony

            Andrew Jackson has long been one of my heroes principally for his stance against the forming of a central banking system for the US. My view is that the federal reserve is the source of much of our trouble. Have you read THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND?

          • No, but I will. Thank you.

    • Speedy Steve

      What to you mean ‘usual suspects?’ Reptilian shape-shifters?

  • Cheri Rodriguez

    The U.S. was founded and built by White men like Andrew Jackson; only their likenesses should be on the currency.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      We historic Americans haven’t had a government that cared for our interests in nearly a century, so perhaps it’s naive to have that attitude.

    • Charles Martel

      Bath House Barry will be on the $3 bill.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Who is bath house Barry?

        • bilderbuster

          Many have claimed young Barack used to frequent male bath houses around Chicago.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            ohhh….from Barry to… Barack. Interesting name change…. kind of like what all muslims do, changing their names like Muhammed Ali did or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

            Didn’t know that “Barry” swung both ways. But, being “married” to Michelle, I guess that got a bit boring… so….

  • Oil Can Harry

    There are 500 Injun tribes. The heroic pro-white President Andrew Jackson only kicked five of the tribes out of the US because they refused to sign peace treaties with the US.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      White children are taught to hate President Jackson because he killed a few Indians–yet the same children are taught nothing about King Phillip’s War (1675-78), where Indians tried to kill off the New England colonists.

      • DonReynolds

        Jackson hated Indians so much, the only son he ever had was an adopted Indian infant he and Rachel raised as a family member. He died before he was 20 of a fever and was a profound loss to the Jackson family.

    • DonReynolds

      Quite a number of Indians were not moved to Arkansas and Oklahoma because they operated farms and shops. They had completely assimilated into the American culture. They still live in Alabama and Mississippi. Reservations were created for the Indians in Florida and in North Carolina, they still live in SE NC…..where I grew up. They had a choice they could stay where they were and live like anyone else, but if they wanted to do tribal government, they had to follow that tribe west.

      • Hilis Hatki

        Indian removal to the west is one of the most glanced over episodes of over history. It took place over decades with the Creeks getting the worst of it. Some tribes went west in style. In some tribes the leaders took the money and the people went west. The Cherokee, on their Trail of Tears got what they deserved according to other Tribes.

  • Hilis Hatki

    This will just be the beginning of “whites on currency” replacement.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      That seems similar to the replacement of the names and statues of Confederate heroes with black agitators in many southern universities.

      • DonReynolds

        Better to burn it than surrender it to the enemy.

  • And what’s this great rush to kick Andrew Jackson off the $20?

    As if I don’t already know, because he used the pen and phone to benefit white people.

    Just get it over already and put Michelle Obama on the $3.

  • Luca

    There have been plenty of women on American coinage as well as American Indians. But let’s not take this opportunity to bash White men go to waste. In my estimation, the only woman worthy of appearing on currency would be Clara Barton or someone else of her stature who actually contributed to a worthwhile cause as opposed to a liberal cause which most times is contrived.

    • John Smith

      Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea – both were failures. Only Lady Liberty has ever been a success.

  • connorhus

    Next up they will try and replace Washington and Jefferson because they owned slaves, then Grant because he drank too much. I guess it’s only fitting to put minorities and Women on the bills since they end up taking most of them for government programs that benefit those groups exclusively anyway.

    • bilderbuster

      Grant owned slaves. Lee set his family’s slaves free before the war.

      • connorhus

        Interesting I did not think he owned any slaves, mostly from having been too poor before the civil war to be honest, but I was wrong. Thank you I learned something today!!! Although apparently Grant set his slave free before the war too in 1859. Apparently his wife had some from his Father in law though as well.

        • bilderbuster

          Lee inherited his slaves that he freed and Lee and his wife would teach the freed slaves to read and taught Bible classes for them.
          The term “Good help is so difficult to come by these days” is attributed to Grant when he was asked why he didn’t free his slaves when the war was over.
          Sherman was a slave owner during the war as were other Union generals.

            bilderbuster: The term “Good help is so difficult to come by these days” is attributed to Grant when he was asked why he didn’t free his slaves when the war was over.

            In Mary Robinson’s July 24, 1885, recollections, during an interview for the St. Louis Republican memorial to Grant following his death, she noted that “he always said he wanted to give his wife’s slaves their freedom as soon as he was able.” In 1859, Grant freed William Jones, the only slave he is known to have owned.

            www[DOT]nps[DOT]gov/ulsg/learn/historyculture/slaveryatwh.htm

          • bilderbuster

            I believe the slaves belonged to Mrs.Grant.

          • bilderbuster

            My mistake about the Union generals being slave owners.
            Many of them and their staff had slaves serving them during the war but they were not the actual owners themselves.
            Nevertheless they had no qualm being served and getting something for nothing from someone else’s free labor.

        • anony

          Thus, the amazing irony in the famous picture of Lee and Grant at the McLean House in Appomattox, Virginia.

      • Awakened Saxon

        Grant owned slaves only because he married into a slave-owning family. He freed them shortly afterwards.

        • bilderbuster

          After the war everyone freed their slaves because that was the law of the land. Northern slaves weren’t freed by the Emancipation Proclamation and in fact no slave was freed by that because it was only for slaves in the Confederate governed territory ( a nation where the president of the Union had no lawful authority ).
          That was a dishonorable attempt by Lincoln to incite a slave rebellion that could have turned into a bloodbath for the White women and children as the men were off fighting the war.

          • Awakened Saxon

            bilderbuster: Northern slaves weren’t freed by the Emancipation Proclamation . . ..

            There were hardly any slaves in the North. I count 17 at this link and that is only if you count the West as the North: www[DOT]civil-war[DOT]net/pages/1860_census.html (2 in Kansas and 15 in Nebraska.)

            bilderbuster: That was a dishonorable attempt by Lincoln to incite a slave rebellion . . ..

            I certainly agree with this.

          • bilderbuster

            Oh there were many more slaves than 17.
            The slaves in The District of Columbia weren’t set free until April of 1862 and the Union state of Maryland was exempted from the Emancipation Proclamation which was issued January 1, 1863.
            It wasn’t until November 1864 that Maryland ratified a new constitution that outlawed slavery.
            Generals and their staff had other people’s slaves attending to their needs.

    • John Smith

      Grant can stay because he had an illness with his substance abuse issues. Lincoln can stay because he might’ve been gay.

    • Blackfish

      And because minorities are prima facia superior to white males

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    We can get rid of Jackson as soon as everyone living on land he acquired for the United States leaves their premises immediately! No hypocrisy here! Why should anyone support the removal of Jackson while continuing to benefit from his accomplishments? Those who are removed from their homes can go live on a bus. And they can sit anywhere on the bus they like.

    Andrew Jackson was one of the greatest presidents of the US. If any of the old white guys must be replaced, better it would be one who was never a president……

    Alexander Hamilton is on the ten dollar bill and was not even born on American soil. The highest rank he ever achieved was Secretary of the Treasury.

    Ben Franklin was Postmaster General, a terribly colorful character, a nominal Quaker, and diplomat….he was never president….but he is on the 100 dollar bill.

    Grant may have been a hero to the North during the civil war as a general, but as president he was one of the worst. Is the civil war over yet? Good, then we do not need Grant on the 50 dollar bill.

    What weemin do we need to put on the paper money? I honestly cannot nominate anyone worthy of the distinction. Queen Elizabeth II would be a good candidate and certainly worthy, but she is not an American. Communists? Lesbians? Radical Leftists? Naaah, probably take another civil war to do that.

    • Hilis Hatki

      Andrew Jackson was not born on American soil, according to some.

      • DonReynolds

        Don’t be silly. He was a prisoner of the British during the Revolution.

        • John Smith

          Born in 1767.

          • Hilis Hatki

            Several older sources claim 1755 as his birth date.

        • Hilis Hatki

          I am not. This is good evidence he was born at sea. He use to tell people this until he decided to run for president.

      • Xerxes22

        Conceived in Ireland, born in America, so say many historians.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Don’t put ideas in their heads. I’m sure they’ll be after those guys next. Let’s see…Michael King on the ten, Rosa Parks on the 20, Harriet Tubman on the 50, Obama on the 100. Yeah, that sounds about right.

      • Anglokraut

        When hyperinflation kicks in, Obama will be on a hundred, all right–the $100 Trillion.

    • Sick of it

      “Grant may have been a hero to the North during the civil war as a general, but as president he was one of the worst. Is the civil war over yet? Good, then we do not need Grant on the 50 dollar bill.”

      I’d rather see Stonewall Jackson the 50.

      • DonReynolds

        Just to be even handed, at least one of the bills should have Robert E. Lee…..not just for a lifetime of service to the United States, hero of the Mexican War, the man who stopped John Brown’s raid, Superintendent at West Point, and a fine example of a gentleman.

      • Awakened Saxon

        It would be a terrible insult to Stonewall Jackson to put him on the currency of the country that conquered his country.

        • Sick of it

          We can put him on a different currency later on then. Obviously this government would not.

    • John Smith

      Both Franklin and Hamilton may have been at least as important to the formation of this country as any president, however.

      • Hilis Hatki

        I believe Franklin was the most important. For what he did here and abroad.

  • MrBiIIGoode .

    If Rosa Parks is put on the 20 dollar bill, it will give a more impactful illustrated meaning to the saying, “twenty dollars isn’t worth what it used to be.”

    • John Smith

      It isn’t, but the affirmative action nature that claims it is would be apparent to those who know the truth with someone so minimal noteworthy as a Rosa Parks on it.

  • Roninf9

    Rosa Parks and her husband were both long time racial activists. She was the secretary of the Montgomery NAACP for over ten years and had attended, along with that degenerate fruad Mike King, the Communist agitation training center known as Highlander Folk School. The Parks bus incident was a carefully constructed media propaganda event. A few months earlier another staged “I won’t sit in the back of the bus incident” took place but didn’t work out to well because the 15 year old girl, who was unmarried and pregnant, used foul language and was arrested for assaulting a police officer. For the next show the race hustlers cast of their own as the grandmotherly “seamstress” to tired to give up her seat and the Corporate Media dutifully sold the tale to the gullible American public.

    • bilderbuster

      “Corporate media is owned by the same tribe as the founders of the NAACP.

      • Roninf9

        Yes. Also, Mike King and the entire “Civil Rights” psy-op was run by New York Bolshevik Jews. But I don’t like to pin all the blame on the Jews. They get plenty of help from gentile traitors, i.e. Freemasons. Freemasonry is Judaism for gentiles. The Judeo-Masonic Cabal is the #1 enemy of Western Civilization and all of Christendom.

  • Hilis Hatki

    I nominate Marilyn Monroe. A full figure portrait on the bill. And to help prevent counterfeiting make it so that when you hold the bill up to light and turn it her clothes dissapear. Ahhh shucks they probably want some nonwhite woman.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      At this point in time, we don’t give squat that Andrew Jackson broke the bank. We only care that he was a white President under attack for being white, and the racist, hateful browns and feminists are trying to erase his historical memory.

  • WR_the_realist

    America’s tradition has been that we put dead presidents on our bills. Rosa Parks never got elected president. Of course we know why they want to get rid of Andrew Jackson — he believed that America was for white people. And we know why they want to replace him by Rosa Parks — she was black.

    • DonReynolds

      Hamilton is on the ten dollar bill.
      Franklin is on the hundred dollar bill.
      Neither of them were ever president.
      If they want to bump someone, pick someone who was not a president.

      • phillyguy

        Franklin and Hamilton are more important to us than 95% of presidents who served this country.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Benjamin Franklin’s accomplishments… where do we start? Bifocals, lightning rod, the Franklin Stove, first postmaster of the U.S., printer, and on and on.

          As you probably know, Franklin didn’t patent his inventions, instead, believed that they should be shared freely and reproduced for the betterment of society… back when people had real character and real concern about societal advancement.

        • Blackfish

          Ann Coulter instead?

  • Sick of it

    All these ethnic names make me wonder why more people aren’t anti-foreigner. Must be the school system.

    • Douglas Quaid

      It is. I remember being in school and all of our math problems that were in word form were along the lines of, “Gomez has 7 apples, he sells 4 apple to Jamal for 60 cents and 3 apples to Laquinda for 70 cents, how much money did Gomez make?”

      It was so obvious even to us elementary school kids that they were trying to get us used to bizarre names that no one in my almost all white school had ever heard of or could imagine ever hearing. So we just made fun of it and laughed about the stupid names. Now looking back I see the propaganda, that at the time I thought was just silly, and how they were prepping us even then to embrace diversity.

      The same goes for the environmental junk, anti-gun, and anti-Christian stuff they constantly pushed.

    Liberals trashed the holidays for Washington and Lincoln. Trashing the Jackson $20 should be a minor problem for them.

    Another possible denomination combination: Chicago Teacher’s Union President Karen Lewis on a new 400 pound note.

    I’m wondering if Charles Murray considered every banknote will be hijacked by Cesar Chavez, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Obama by 2050.

  • “Finally, we’ve got a current event that’s not depressing.”
    How so?
    “Oh, my gosh! We’re just going crazy here”
    So it would seem.

  • A Freespeechzone

    I’m surprised that they don’t want Obama on all our money denominations.

    It’s only a matter of time. . .

    • They’ll hold off on the money until they get his imaged carved on Rushmore.

  • BlueSonicStreak

    Replace whitey on whitey’s own currency.

    No hatred here.

  • RedOnTheHead

    I’ll take my change in George Washingtons please.

  • Just try getting me to accept that as “money”.

    • John Smith

      Why even the effort to do this when society is being moved by TPTB toward a cashless society where transactions can be monitored?

      • Hilis Hatki

        That is the goal. I’ve heard that 97% of transactions in Sweden is electronic. Third world are are taking to it like moths to a flame.

  • libertarian1234

    How about Lizzie Borden instead?
    It makes about as much sense.

    • Hilis Hatki

      She should be on the 40 and 41 dollar bill.

  • Douglas Quaid

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been more of a push for this type of thing, they’ve already ruined every respectable discipline of study in our universities by cramming diversity in there. That’s way worse than a petty picture on a piece of paper backed by nothing. My only request is that if they put Mike Brown on one of the bills that he be clearly in the possession of cigars in the picture.

    Things like this won’t be a problem in New America…………….

  • Diversity Heretic

    White nationalists should actually applaud this movement. They can put a non-American on the money as far as I’m concerned. It might get more Americans of European heritage to realize that it’s just not their country anymore!

    Amelia Earhart…. Those 20`s always seem to be missing at the end of the month…

    I traded some collectibles for a thousand dollar bill once. I used to hand it to waitresses and ask for change for a hundred, before grabbing their arm and going, “Wait!! That was a Thousand!…” One happy hour the girl stepped out of reach and my hand missed her arm. She started off toward the bus station (dirty plates, not Greyhound) and I ran after her. End of game and end of story…

    My own list of suggestions:

    (Google these if you’re not familiar)

    Rachel Jeantel
    Karima Elkins
    Mona Nelson
    Sparkles Lindsay
    Mitchelle Blair

    Feel free to add to the list. We could start a petition maybe.

    • Speedy Steve

      I recommend a close-up crotch shot. It’s the only part men really care about.

      Fetch me a cold beer and a sandwich!

    • WJaMrenfan

      That is really negative. How about something positive, that reflects the contributions of diversity? For inventors, George Stevens, creator of invisible glass. Or for innovations in legal scholarship, Eric Holder and Algonquin J. Calhoun?

  • Cid Campeador

    I think that an ” American Indian”: Tecumseh, Chief Joseph, Sacagawea, Sitting Bull, Chief Halftown, (For all you Philly Folks),Mangas Coloradas (Not Jesse Jackson. The REAL One,), Cochise, Red Cloud or any of the others who played a part in our History and deserve more recognition than Rosa Parks who was an Agent ” Provacateuse” for the Communist party as I remember.

  • IstvanIN

    Bring back the 3¢ nickel and put Rosa Parks on that.

    • Kenner

      There’s already a buffalo on the nickel.

      • IstvanIN

        Not the 3¢ piece.

  • Koriel

    Rosa Parks was a secretary at the NAACP. The whole thing was staged on her part. Elizabeth Jennings wasn’t staged I don’t think.

  • The woman on the back of Australian bills is Queen Elizabeth II.

  • Cultural Marxists just want to remove the White male from everything. Already not a single national holiday is named for a White American. Hey, maybe if we are concerned about women, we can have a national holiday named for Susan B. Anthony? We will just drop Martin Luther King Day in favor of Susan B. Anthony Day? How’s that? Oh, I forgot, being black gives a male automatic protection, according to Cultural Marxists. So, black Americans get their own national holiday, but not White Americans.

    “…Stone, a journalist, has been on the phone so incessantly her husband has temporarily left home.”
    Temporarily left home. I’ll just bet he finally grew a pair and this nonsense was the last straw.

  • DavidMacko

    Andrew Jackson paid off the national debt and opposed the central bank of his day. Grover Cleveland was the last Democrat president who obeyed the Constitution and avoided foreign entanglements. If the politically correct idiots force a woman onto our fiat currency it should be Sacagawea. She helped white men, Lewis and Clark, in their exploration.

    Every brick of every civilization has been laid by men. Men deserve to be on the currency.
