Bottom left corner has "Atomic Energy Group 1970"

Poster has a red background with white text. Below the text is a small upside down United States Flag. The poster reads, "The streets of our country are in turmoil. The Universities are filled with students rebelling and rioting. Communists are seeking to destroy our contry. Russia is threatening us with her might. And the republic is in danger. Yes - danger from within and without. We need law and order! ... Without law and order our nation cannot survive..." Adolph Hilter (sic) - 1932." This historic quotation from the depths of fascist Germany echoed the political positions of the conservative presidency of Richard M. Nixon. This version of the poster displays the U.S. flag in the upside-down position, the international symbol of distress. [LMC]
