Dauntless in Seattle

Who is this man?

Placing the blame in the wrong place
Reader comment on: Seeger Speaks — and Sings — Against Stalin
Submitted by Mike Perry, Inkling Books, Seattle, Aug 31, 2007 11:43

While Seeger is to be commended for his belated admission of remaining silent about Stalin's horrors, read more carefully, he seems to be remaining true to the broad Marxism dogma and placing blame in all the wrong places. Notice where he placed the blame in that letter. First on Stalin. The Soviet party did that in the mid-fifties, the so-called "cult of personality." Seeger is a bit late in that admission, a half-century in fact.

Read the whole thing.

If anyone finds a word in his comment about Pete Seeger and communism that is untrue, speak up.
