In the late 1700's. The exact same segment that was against entering WWI and as pointed out above, the exact same segment that Rachel Maddow is referencing in her "Ultra" podcast series, which I HEARTILY recommend listening to.

The same segment that was or still is:

Against giving women the right to vote.
Against desegregation.
Against the Civil Rights Act.
Against Unions and the right of workers to form one.
Against all of "The New Deal" programs.
Against every single program that provided for basic needs such as food, shelter, education, and healthcare to residents of the U.S.
Against Public Schools.
Against Publicly funded or guaranteed unemployment and disability insurance.
Against subsidies for housing, pensions, and health insurance programs.
Against Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program.
Against Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or "Food Stamps" )
Against virtually every single social and economic program the benefited the masses from the very first one to today.

The American Progressive has been dragging these assholes, kicking and screaming, into the future for 250 years.
