How about naming a toilet bowl Pete Seeger.

He was slime.

A good singer, but still slime.

And his IQ was just about as low as that of Barbara Stri-bimbo.

Pete Seeger was a talented songwriter, and there’s nothing wrong with being a pacifist, but you don’t have to be anti-American to do it. Maybe they could name the bridge the “Shut Up and Sing Bridge”, as a reminder to entertainers that being able to perform doesn’t mean their opinion on anything is of the slightest interest to anyone else...

I’d still rather have entertainers offering unsolicited political views than Republican ex-Senators like Warner and Lugar coming right out and endorsing Democrats.

this awful idea has a self-destruct button built in: the Tappan were Indians; good luck taking something else away from them, evil whiteys.

If I remember correctly, his sailboat, the "Clearwater", was cited for releasing raw sewage into the Hudson River.

Hugh Hewitt gave a very informative, sobering obit, yesterday, replete with seeger’s associates, going back to 1936, when this guy soded with the nazis but also promoted stalin, while playing ‘we shall overcome’ in the background.

He even said that at least Joan Baez apologized after seeing the Cambodian killing fields, stating that she contributed to 6,000,000 deaths (that’s an apology, Fonda apologists)

This guy was not a sweet folk song singer. He was a communist activist. A card carrying member and promoter

And ugly, too

so a NY politican wants to name a bridge after a singer who promised to help the enemy if the USA was attacked.

he was just another hippie in the mud of woodstock’s stupid generation.

He was no pacifist, he just thought we fought for the wrong side.

seeger supported the communists during the spanish civil war in spain. The soviet union funded the “lincoln brigade” which was a sham “republican” force dedicated to the spread of communism. (leftists playing games with words again)

Seeger was a long time member of the communist party and there is nothing to be amdmired about a person who advocated the overthrow of the united states.

Hitler’s Grave—ah! Not sure but the melody may come from Old Joe Clark...more recently Mojo Nixon used the melody for Let’s Burn Nashville Down, a condemnation of modern country music

Let’s Go Burn Ole Nashville Down
Set it all aflame
BBQ the greedheads
Made country weak and tame
Burn burn Nash Vegas
Char it’s rancid soul
Burn burn Branson too
Make a big black hole.
Country music is killing itself
Tryin’ to be what it ain’t
Garth Brooks sells as many as Manilow
