Scary adolescent patriotism at a pro-Vietnam War parade, New York City, 1968

Crazy looking kid holding a banner that reads "If you're heart is not in the USA, get your ass out now." Circa 1960.

(via Black and WTF)

Assuming this kid is still alive, he’s only in his mid-50′s.

I wonder what his politics are now and if he knows this image exists.

    That is scary. Really, intellectually speaking, what is the difference between him and a kids who were at pro-Nazi rallies in the 1930′s?

  2. Paula says:

    He’s probably a member of the Tea Party right now and voted for the rape-enabling purveyor of Taliban-level women’s rights.
    That’s Mitt, for any who didn’t get it.

      Right, because the moron pushing socialized medicine we can’t pay for who is using the NSA, CIA and FBI to spy on us and leaves AMERICANS without aid when attacked in Bengahzi is SO much better. Idiot.

      On that note, why do people even bother posting their politics on message boards? They only get people riled up and don’t change anyone’s opinion. (and yes, I realize the irony of this post)
