Thread Name: Pete Seeger: Nobel Peace -Updated-deadline Feb1!
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger: Nomination for Nobel Peace
Then nobody should be criticized for pointing out that Seeger was a Communist nor for pointing out that he was a Stalinist (at one point). But most of what I've seen written about him makes it sound as though those who accused him of being a Communist were wrong. Acoustic Guitar Magazine did this a few years ago in an article on Seeger. They wrote about the history and referred to "his accusers" as though their accusations were vacuous. They were not.
