WFUV just broadcast a new song from the Helen Thomas of the folk world, Pete Seeger, our old crazy aunt in the attic. It’s a lovely song, decrying the BP oil spill, and calling on God to use us to correct the wrongs of the world. Very touching, including a sweet children’s chorus, and it’s all completely bogus.
Pete Seeger is a raging communist and has been since at least the thirties, when, abandoning his privileged, boarding school/Harvard upbringing, he set out to side with some of the biggest mass murderers of the Twentieth Century. Since then, he has supported Stalin (50 million dead?) Mao (60 million), Castro (10 million) the Viet Cong, Palestinian terrorists, Al Qaeda and on and on and on.
Yes, at 91, he’s a charming old doddering fool, but to hear an atheist ratfuck working over and exploiting yet another generation of school kids is disgusting. He’s a filthy man with blood on his hands, that nice sailing boat of his notwithstanding.
