Pete Seeger was a great man, and the common man had no better friend.
I wrote Mister Seeger a letter, telling him that he was mentioned on page 43 of my book, Revelations of the Great Spirit. He wrote back and said that since he was 93, he might not be able to read it. So I sent a copy to the Beacon Library, so he could read it if he wants, but it would also be available to the citizens of Beacon.

So long to another commie rat and atheist. His music sucked too.

Obama showing his true colors: "I'll always be grateful to him". As one commie to another.

The self-validating Leftist mind will commonly go to populist ignorance and mob mentalities to arrange rationalizations for their political madness. Seeger sang child-like songs for masses of drugged and intellectually stagnant mobs. His embrace of Marxism and its inherent thievery even from the "common" man resulted in international Marxist support of his ability to make people "feel" they had an understanding of human energy. Recent examples of similar promotions of populist ignorance and intentional destruction of sound Western civilization is the pandering senselessness of Roland Emmerich and the Marxist Hollywood support he received in making "Anonymous", a slander and intentional betrayal of sound research concerning the actual identity of Shakespeare. Seeger, or Emmerich... both lack scholarship and credibility, because as all Marxists, they manufacture a fantasy and go backwards in time to find snippits of gossip, or intentional slanders to construct support for the fantasy. When history fails to unearth unsupportable slander, they construct their own.
Such dishonesty is all that survives the dope inspired shallowness of any Marxist mind. Their powers are gained only from an intentional manipulation of mob ignorance and fervor. Seeger could have apologized before he died, but that would probably have killed him.
