The reality of the 1968 US anti-war movement
The crooked Democratic convention shouted down peace
“We shall overcome”
Revisionist historians (and the lying US news media) present opposition to the Vietnam War as coming from dirty hippies and spoiled college students.
These pictures from the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention tell the real story.
People of all ages and backgrounds protested the war for the most part in a dignified and peaceful manner.
So what did the lying US news media present? No housewives, no business people, no middle aged. Just young violent radicals.
