Pete Seeger

Revered & slobbered over like a Marxist Lincoln in the most mildly leftwing circles, still sporting his Lenin cap, still apologizing for Stalin even in old age, still singing for every leftwing, subversive, socialist cause including Barack Obama’s presidency and Occupy Wall Street.

 

Originally folksily declaring “this machine[banjo] surrounds fascism and forces it to surrender,” Mr. Seeger’s selectively critical “anti-fascism” has never extended to anything left of the political center. When Marxists violate human rights, it’s just an unfortunate by-product of the otherwise glorious Proletariat Struggle. Gotta break eggs to make that heavenly omelette, y’know.
