"This used to be a hellova good country."

There is a scene in Easy Rider where George Hanson(Jack Nicholson) and Billy(Dennis Hopper) are discussing why the rednecks hate Billy and Wyatt(Peter Fonda.)Billy says its because of the long hair. George tells him no, its because Wyatt and Billy represent freedom and that a truly free individual scares people and makes them dangerous.
So how is it that the same people who 35 years ago were scared and angry at seeing a free individual are now the ones claiming that the country is being attacked by people who hate and fear our freedom?
