Pete Seeger Singing About Old Joe



Text  



    And it’s not Joe McCarthy. Nope. Joe Stalin. It’s about 70 years late, but the old commie folk singer has finally acknowledged that Stalin was a villain. 

    When I was in college in the 1970s, I boycotted Seeger’s concert because he was an apologist for Stalin. Even then, few of my classmates had any idea of what I was muttering about. Fewer still will greet the  admission of error (in a letter to Ron Radosh) with understanding. But it’s good to have for the record I guess.
