Pete Seeger May 3rd 1919 – 27th Jan 2014

One of the good guys
He wasn’t just a folk singer and great banjo player.

Here’s what he said to Congress when they tried to intimidate him into “naming names” during the House Un-American Activities Committee hearings.

“I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this.”

He paid with a ruined career – which he eventually revived – and he outlived in good health all the bastards who tried to grind him down.

TAP –  A great voice and song writer.  Many will not even have heard of him.  He stood up against the bullies, and sacrificed his career for his principles.  I played Little Boxes when learning to play the guitar as a teenager in the 1960s!  I thought it fitting to mark his passing with a Tap Blog mention.

    here in Florida the fight against communism is almost lost, now we can see that Hollywood was pushing it in the USA and many show biz stars helped.
    Obama is a figure of fun an d absolutely hated, much like your Churchill in W W 2.
    I fear for the future of our children, the country was stolen while we slept

    I think the Majority are still asleep!

    Communism, & Fascism, just different sides of the same coin, as I have said before. Both controlled by The R.C.C. Vatican Jesuits. The reality of this is about to hit you before very long.

    REGARDS ………. WASP
