Re: Pete Seeger died today

OTOH, Seeger was an unrepentant Stalinist who praised the Hitler Stalin pact and derided Roosevelt for being a warmonger but after Hitler attacked Russia he reversed course. He failed to find anything wrong with Stalin until 1995 and even then didn't really apologize for supporting him. He supported Pol Pot, Mao, the Sandinistas and every bizarro leftist cult.
Good songwriter, yes, a good American, NO.
