"Marijuana-smelling, Beetle hair-styled, dirty-faced wild zombies..."
"The tipping point as to why we can lose the war in another way, is self-explanatory, to wit -- when we let a bunch of marijuana-smelling, Beetle hair-styled, dirty-faced wild guitar-playing zombies, capsule-upper-downer-dependent brush artists from the dark side of art for arts sake, heroin-sniffing metallic rockers and their Woodstock, cheering drug-addict teenage fans and followers, politically drunk Hollywood activists, school drop-outs, alcohol-soaked bike-riding beatniks, moonstruck religious freaks, urban drifters and their kind, lord our streets and win the war for the Vietcong and the North Vietnamese army."

16. Oh, such a distinguished resume.
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 05:47 PM by ocelot
Since he doesn't identify the schools he went to or the publications he worked for,may we assume he has degrees from Bob's Bait & Tackle Shop and Junior College; he was a former assistant attache to Tannu Tuva; and a part time stringer for the South Bumfuck Weekly Shopper?

6. Mr. Sumcad wasn't content with only 59,000 names on the Black Wall
How many more did he think should die for our unworthy cause in SE Asia.

How many does he think should die for our unworthy cause in the Middle East?

10. Right wingers blame the hippies for Vietnam the way Hitler blamed the Jews
for causing Germany to lose World War I.

The argument is really almost identical.

Germany was never militarily defeated on the battlefield
Communists and their allies in the news media undermined the peoples confidence in the Kaiser and the war

etc etc etc


There is not one Republican myth about Vietnam that doesn't have a corollary in Mein Kampf where Hitler talks about the reasons why Germany lost the 1st world war.

13. Right Wingers still cling to the delusion that Vietnam was noble and just
Rather than a 10 year murderous rampage to force our way of life on people that never asked for it.

15. After reading the article and his bio
I had to do something. So I sent his name and particulars to the New Hampshire Gazette for inclusion in their chickenhawk database. I also suggested that he be put into the stark-raving lunatic division.

18. This is really from the Onion, right?
Maybe John Gibson, or Hannity should search for this outdated twit and bring into the bright light. He's obviously been living in a closet for the last four decades.

28. Beatnik?
This idiot groups the Beat generation in with counter-culture Hippies from the late 60s. That in and of itself shows he knows nothing but how to pander to radical rightwing wingnutz.

30. the funny thing is, the people the right truly freaks out about ...
... don't fit the slacker/hippie stereotype at all! The ex-Marine, the buttoned-down accountants and professors, the priest or minister, the quiet little librarian, the "soccer moms" ... right-wingers get all frothy and hysterical when they see that there are people advocating peace who LOOK JUST LIKE the capitalist/pro-war/Moral Majority ideal. It really seems to frighten them.

31. Check the last paragraph:
"It is unbelievable that we have this stupid repeat of Vietnam. If we do not learn the lesson of Vietnam, the consequence will not only be costly but also horribly fatal."

Uhmmm... isn't that the fucking point?

34. They WISH!!!
Don't they WISH we were all a bunch of "dirty" hippies.

The truth is, we are main-stream Americans from all walks of life. And funny, a whole lot of the "hippies" I knew from the 60's are right wingers now, so maybe they should claim their own.

And lastly, I knew plenty of hippies in the 60's and not a single one of them was "dirty."
