"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

The only good thing to say about Seeger is that he's dead. And if that's what Il Douche means by "showing [him] where [he] need to go', by all means, follow him, Barry.  :smokin:

How conveniently Breitbart, which regularly distorts "truth" more than any conservative site out there, leaves out the first part of Seeger's quote about small villages taking care of each other: that with that position, he considered himself to the right of Goldwater.

Seeger did not trust Communism as we know it-- the top-down, totalitarian approach to governance that defines modern liberalism and progressivism. He was definitely from the New Left school of social justice, but he was no big-government socialist.

He also believed that people had the right to associate with Communism if they wanted, hence his refusal to cooperate with HUAC and why he didn't get a lot of TV time.

Seeger had as much to do with modern libertarianism as he did with progressivism.

Seeger could do a flip faster than a hooker on a trampoline when it came to supporting Uncle Joe and the Bolshies. Compare Seeger pre-1941 and the Seeger of "The Good Ship Reuben James". The only difference was Barbarossa. He was an out and out Red [sang at David Horowitz's Commie Kids Camp]. Seeger had as much in common with Libertarians as I have with Maoists. Good Riddance.

I wouldn't know Seeger from the man in the moon so I can comment on his positions, but I ask you:  What other kind of Communism is there besides the Communism we know?  If there was any other kind it wasn't successful or we'd surely know about it--the Communists wouldn't let us hear the end of it.  The only one we know is the one that murdered millions . . .

I commented on the local news site that he was a die hard communist who never passed up a chance to advocate for an anti-American cause.

It got deleted because it wasn't nice.
