It’s yet more proof of Billy Joel’s trademark song, “Only the Good Die Young,” as Pete Seeger is dead at age 94. I actually didn’t realize that corroded individual was still alive ’til just now. Seeger, the “folk singer,” was one of those schmucks who loved everything anti-American (and anti-Western) and everyone destructive to it. The only surprise for me about this stale refugee from the folk/hippie/yippie crowd is that he did not convert to Islam. He was definitely a halal granola type–a fruit, a nut, and a flake. If Barack Obama had a White grandfather . . . oh, wait!
Seeger protested with the Occupy crowd (and now Occupy Hell has a new leader). He called Israel “monstrous” and endorsed the boycott of the Jewish State. Plus he was one of the activists against Israeli demolition of HAMAS homes used to smuggle terrorists and their bombs. Yup, a peace activist for bombs! Only in Seegerica. (He visited Israeli kibbutzim back in the ’60s, but only ‘cuz that was the hip lefty thing to do back then. He did a quick about face on that stuff.) If Noam Chomsky had a designer line of people, Pete Seeger would be the first supermodel protesting down the semper-Fidel-fidelis runway. It figures that Bill and Hillary Clinton awarded him with the National Medal of Arts. More like Medal for old farts. Banjos all over America are rejoicing that they are free at last, free at last!
Once an official member of the Communist Party, he claimed he left it. But he never left Communism. He just gave it other names and joined its other incarnations, including the Occupy movement, the anti-war crowd, and the illegal alien cause. Oh, and did I mention that he fell for Al Sharpton’s and Tawana Brawley’s false rape accusations and protested on Brawley’s behalf, too? “If I Had a Hammer,” I still wouldn’t have used it to bang sense into this jerk’s thick and divisive skull. For him, if it was far-left, it was oh so right. If he’d had his way and we had no nukes anymore, we’d all be saluting images of Lenin, Stalin, and/or Chairman Mao. And he probably smoked more than his share of doobies in just a month of his long life.
The only good things I can say about this guy is that he served for three years in World War II (as an entertainer) and that he opposed Hitler (so did all other Communists that I know of).
Reader Sean has some great “reaction headlines” he wishes were real–and I’ve added my two at the bottom:
“Wow. Well, I would have gotten that ‘Dead or Alive’ game wrong on that one. Until now”
“This just in from Russian Embassy: Russian flags will fly at half-staff today in honor of fellow Communist Pete Seeger”
“With Pete Seeger gone, Occupy Wall Street only has Joan Baez left for their musical support. Unless Michael Moore can pick up a guitar and learn real quick”
“This Land Is Your Land….and now it’s time to shovel some of it on top of you”
“Pete Seeger dead at 94. Music world suddenly less shrill and scolding”
“Peter Seeger factoid: In 2012 released ‘Peter Remembers Woody’ which ironically was about a couple of d-cks.”
“Dead Man Walking Finally Dies.”
“Tales from the Crypt Ends.”
Buh-bye, Pete. Don’t let the gates of hell hit ya on the way in. Even Cerberus is wincing.
