"Hippies and the War" editorial from The Greenfield Recorder newspaper

In the late 1960s and early 1970s the press and public figures widely denounced individuals who opposed the Vietnam War. This editorial opinion, published by the Greenfield Recorder in October of 1967, echoes national public sentiment. Those opposed to the war and the draft are identified as a fringe element of the population. Referred to as "Hippies," the author describes them as lazy, selfish and abusers of the freedoms that they have been granted as Americans. Rather than encouraging an end to the war with their actions, the editorial asserts that these protesters have been deceived into advancing Communist objectives. The editorial implies that these protesters are engaged in treason.
