Obama inauguration song calls for the overthrow of private property.
youtube ^ | 1-20-2009 | Pete Seeger & Bruce Springsteen

Posted on 01/23/2009 9:21:11 PM PST by freedomwarrior998

I've been looking and I haven't heard this mentioned yet. During the Obamunist coronation ceremony lefties Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen were singing "This Land is your Land."

To my utter shock and amazement, they actually brought out a verse that is hardly ever sung in public. This verse openly calls for the overthrow of private property.

Watch from 2:42 on the video, here are the lyrics:

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me;
Sign was painted, it said private property;
But on the back side it didn't say nothing;
That side was made for you and me.

The crowd and the red chorus in the background gleefully sung along as the communists openly revealed their intentions.

Folks, we are in for a long road ahead.

None of this is shocking. Pete Seeger is a self-described Communist, and he belonged to the party. The other guy is just stupid ~ a mere entertainer into it for the girls, booze and dope.

Still, neither one of them is going to let you share in their bounty except at the point of a gun. That's 'cause they don't really believe in Communism either ~ they just want the power and the girls, booze and dope.

The problem is the President shares in their beliefs.

Can you remember the last time that an inauguration had Communists singing about the destruction of private property rights? I don't even think Klintoon went that far.

That's Most of Washington D.C. at this point. Birds of a feather flock together.

Original WG lyrics. No big surprise. Woody was a well known communist. Pete is handing over to Bruce because his days are numbered.

Bruce will carry the “torch” until he finds another weak-kneed guitar strummer to carry the “message”.....

My Frank Zappa trumps a Seeger and Springsteen anyday.

The Clintons were hanging condoms on the White House Christmas tree so I really don't have any idea what songs they were singing. Probably bawdy ones.

Concerning the concert, that was a concert.

Concerning Commies, it's a mental illness ~ they know that now ~ still, they persist in it.

The only effective treatment is called the Rosenburg Process.

Seeger is being his old commie self, but it's always hilarious to hear Springsteen singing this kind of crap. Mr. Blue Collar who is a multimillionaire with multiple houses, at least one of which is (or was) in Beverly Hills...singing about outlawing private property.

I mean, the utter audacity of these people is overwhelming. I would love to interview him live on TV. It wouldn't be Charlie Rose time, you can be sure. (I have respect for some of his oldest music and his live performances and cover versions, so it wouldn't be just bashing.)

Springsteen needs someone to throw this stuff at him and say "Come on, Bruce, what's this crap?" He's never had to answer a hard question from anybody, ever.

Me and Willie the Pimp were checkin’ out the Hot Rats and eatin’ yellow snow when Suzy Creamcheese came by (what’s got into her, anyway?)

But the real question, before the Apostrophe is -

What will you do if the people you knew,
Were the plastic that melted, and the chromium too?

Zappa also said, in reference to Socialism and Communism:

“The first two words a baby learns are “MaMa” and “Mine!”

No, he'd give some droning BS about "Look, I just see families trying to put food on the table..." blah blah blah.

What else could one expect from a white middle class suburban kid who has tried to put across that he's some kind of street urchin who made good by struggling up from the gutter?

“Communism doesn’t work because people like to own stuff.”

Communism doesn’t work because humans HAVE to own stuff to be human.

Stuff is an evolutionary extension of our bodies and minds. If you don’t own your stuff you don’t own your existence.

In case you haven’t been reminded lately:

Paychecks are private property and not government subsidies.

Most of you would defend your home and family with deadly force. But you won’t sacrifice much to defend your paycheck (your existence) against politicians and their thievery.

As always, elitist moonbats do not consider themselves among the unwashed to whom the "rules" apply. Some animals are more equal than others.

I think these current singers, actors, etc are still trying to live in the ‘60s. Even though a lot of them were not around. But they pick up some kind of energy from it.

I’m a child of the ‘60s...but it’s getting pretty boring..between the Hollyweirds..singers...politicians...etc

It’s time to move on, imo.

I have to agree. I was born in 1953 so I have been around the block once or twice and I know BS when I see it. Frank Zappa like him or hate him is fun to listen to you have to admit.

I always preferred the version we sang on the playground:

This land is my land
It isn’t your land
I’ve got a shotgun
You haven’t got one
If you don’t get off
I’ll blow your head off
This land was made for only me.

1953 was a very good year, as that was my birth year also. My formative years were during the ‘60s. We share the same “teenhood”. Lots of angst musically and politically that is trying to be emulated by the ‘80s thru present. Ain’t gonna happen.

I like Zap..and he is still fun to listen to, no argument.

Driven around the block once or twice? You bet. Just makes us better drivers.

This conversation has struck a chord with me -my “Weasels...” cassette quit working a couple years ago and TODAY my online ordered CD came in the mail. Although many of the songs can be heard in one form another throughout my collection, it has been good to hear it all together. The artwork is great. I forgot that much of the electric violin in early Mothers was NOT Jean-Luc Ponty but was Don Sugarcane Harris. Don’t get me wrong, Jean-Luc is fantastic too. And I believe that was the only album with Lowell George.

His communism quote is right-on!!!

I tend toward classical and celtic music and don’t let me forget Ted Nugent. Zappa always facinated me for reasons difficult to explain for those who don’t like him.
