Why All The Hippies Morphed Into Campus Fascists

I recall a photograph, taken in the late 1960s or early ’70s, during some sort of protest (it could have been anywhere, about pretty much anything, given the high level of unrest). A rank of soldiers stood in full combat gear, rifle barrels pointed straight up in front of their faces. They were at attention, with firm expressions, eyes forward. A slim, beautiful hippie chick faced one of the soldiers and was sliding the stem of a daisy down the barrel of his gun. She had been working her way down the rank, performing the same gesture with each soldier’s rifle, as they stood fast without reaction.

    The hippies have akways been fascists, but it’s only now when they are geting enough power to put all their plans in place.

    • I hate Hippies.

      The hippies have always been commies and feminazis and tools of One World Older Central bankers.

    It was hard to resist the siren call: “Turn on, tune in, drop out”.

    I did so at the grand old age of 27. Of course, my intro to Mary Jane helped immeasurably.

    Why stay in a boring, going nowhere job when you could work towards a degree on the government’s dime?

      I’m glad I missed all that.
      I did waste my time in my twenties.
      Spent a few years sitting in a lounge watching the world go by.
      Had my reasons and it wasn’t because of Timothy Leary.

  • They were always fascists.

    They were the first major wave of cultural marxists, make no mistake about it.

    They were always fascists.

    But like Hitler, when they were young they did not have any power, so they hung around pretending they were artistic and getting drunk, or rather in their case stoned, and raging against the “evil world” that did not march to their drum, until the opportunity arose for them to attain power and impose their will on everyone else.
