Off topic: Those reactions would surprise nobody who was around and not in a liberal bubble during that era. Until recently that part of history of that era has been whitewashed. History is written by the winners and the “winners” were the anti-war people, the US was beaten in Vietnam, and Nixon was forced to resign. They wrote that Kent State galvanized the public in favor of the righteous anti war movement. True to a point, it galvanized both sides. That partial version serves the purposes of both sides. That version means the anti war people can take credit for “ending the war”. If you were of the mind that “a good hippie is a dead hippie” a phrase I heard and overheard more then once that is not something you want to brag about or even remember. The WWII generation fought in and agreed with that war no questions asked. Many of that generation viewed the anti war people as traitors pure and simple. Added to that that radically different look, lifestyle, music etc. Add to that the association with college students who get exemptions while their kids were drafted the reasons for such animus should be understood.


You make a valid point. People think the images of white mobs attacking blacks trying to break Jim Crow ended in the early 1960s but there's clearly photographs of hostile mobs of white folk in northern states attacking black swimmers in 1975, clearly this type of mob mentality is reflected in the hatred of anti-war college students whom the bulk of Americans also hated because of their support for black civil rights. Obviously the old conservative ways were creeping under the surface all the time and has re-emerged with the advent of Trump.


Even this turns into the subject of racism with you. I'm dead serious here, I think maybe you need some counseling.

A handful of kids will show up, dodder around, and go home after a few minutes with their parents who were on standby the whole time once the desert heat has gotten the better of them.

AlienStock/Storm Area 51 Has Officially Been Cancelled

The AlienStock/Storm Area 51 event that was originally scheduled to take place in Rachel, Nevada, next week has officially been cancelled. Matty Roberts created the Facebook page “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us” as a joke, but around two million people have pledged to storm the Air Force base as it has been widely speculated that there’s an alien cover-up happening there and people want answers.

The party has been moved to Las Vegas.
Although the Little A’Le’Inn motel in Rachel (nearest town to Area 51) is planning for the show to go on.
I'm expecting Rachel to get swamped with visitors that day. By swamped I mean maybe twice its population of 54 residents.

Bud Light is still hoping to supply beer for aliens, even if the "Storm Area 51" event is canceled. And this time, the company has special plans in store for regular old Earthlings as well.

Bud Light had previously pledged (albeit in good humor) to give a free beer to any aliens that managed to escape Area 51 during the now-canceled "Storm Area 51" event, originally organized on Facebook in an effort to give attendees a chance to "see them aliens."

The original “free beer for escaped aliens” announcement came in July, when the viral "Storm Area 51" raid was still months away. Since then, the event, which started as a joke, had morphed into an actual alien-themed festival dubbed Alienstock — which was set to take place between Sept. 20-22 — but that, too, was canceled when the event's creator pulled out over safety concerns, saying he didn't want to be involved in “Fyre Fest 2.0.” [During the Fyre Festival's inaugural weekend, the event experienced problems related to security, food, accommodation, medical services and artist relations, resulting in the festival being postponed indefinitely. Instead of the luxury villas and gourmet meals for which festival attendees paid thousands of dollars, they received prepackaged sandwiches and FEMA tents as their accommodation.] With so much interest in the site, however, an "Area 51 Celebration" was organized in Las Vegas, instead.

Now, Bud Light wants everyone — including extraterrestrials — to know that the company will still be present at the Sin City event. And according to a press release, Bud Light is bringing an “alien-friendly fridge,” which will be staged at the Luxor Hotel and Casino, and “reserved exclusively for aliens.” What's more, Bud Light says the fridge can only be opened by an "alien finger scan," whatever that means.
