Pete Seeger’s Odes to Peace

PeteSeegerWIB11-09-13_1718pete seeger

Prototypical peacecreep Pete Seeger adopted the song Guantanamera during the Cuban Missile Crisis..."in honor of the Cuban people," he says.

In 1999 Pete Seeger eagerly visited Cuba to proudly accept the Castro regime's highest cultural honor, the Medal of the Order Felix Varela, in honor of Seeger's “humanistic and artistic work in defense of the environment and against racism.” (Presumably--given typical Cuban gov. decor--under a Che Guevara poster, picture or banner of some kind.)

On his visit to Cuba in 1998 Pope John Paul II was also awarded this medal, by the way.

“If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.” (Che Guevara Nov. 1962)
(The pic above shows Che Guevara with actress/journalist/socialite Lisa Howard, as guest of honor at a chic Manhattan party hosted by Bobo Rockefeller Dec. 1964.)

    The Howard woman was apparently aping Jeanne Moreau, who was very big in 1964. She could have saved herself the trouble, as her acting career obviously went nowhere. As for "Che," he was just an ape.

    "Give peace a chance." Too bad Seeger didn't give truth a chance, and lived off "peace" like others have lived off race. He may have been a useful idiot, but maybe he was just another BS artist.
