He Had A Hammer

…and he had a sickle.

Unrepentant Stalinist Pete Seeger has died at the age of 94. He was a loyal comrade to the end, adopting every Communist position of the moment, regardless of how contradictory it was to the position immediately preceding. Emphatically unrelentingly pacifist during the period of the Nazi-Soviet Pact, he became a strong supporter of WW2 once Stalin attacked Hitler.

Not until 2009 did Seeger express any form of regret, even if phony regret, for his unwavering support of Stalin. And even that concession is of questionable sincerity, given that as recently as 2011, he aligned himself with the anti-Semites of the BDS (Boycott, Disinvest and Sanctions) movement which seeks the destruction of the state of Israel.

Having spent 65 years (he joined the Communist Party in 1939) encouraging those who created a Hell on Earth, Pete Seeger now gets to experience the real thing.


Helping Harvey Weinstein

On Piers Morgan:I’m not going to make some crazy action movie just to blow up people and exploit people just for the sake of making it.”

In real life: Quentin Tarantino “has just begun talking to Harvey Weinstein about how they’re going to make” The Hateful Eight.

The mind boggles at the prospect of a Tarantino Western that doesn’t “blow up people and exploit people just for the sake of making it”.
