An older item (2007) that discusses Seeger's actual life vs. the film version of it. Agree/ disagree, whatever. It's a worthwhile read.

Quote:
We come out of the film viewing Mr. Seeger as a man who always stood for peace. The truth was that he called for peace when the Party line demanded it, changed to supporting military intervention when the Party line changed, and then resumed the campaign for peace during the Cold War, when he regularly endorsed disarming America and excusing the Soviet arms buildup. Now, he constantly tells interviewers that he is a communist with a small c. He has finally gotten off the Stalinist bandwagon — a little late to make any difference, but better late than never. I even heard him publicly read aloud Rosa Luxemburg's famous sentences about the need for free speech under socialism, to which he added, "I wish I had read that earlier. It would have saved me a lot of trouble."

To properly place him on the great campus in the sky, the real question is, was he 2A or anti? I don't know.

He was a proud communist. I can't say as a matter of absolute fact, but if I were betting, I'd bet on anti. Communist doctrine and no-kidding individual rights are incompatible.

It's always a pleasure to read the carefully articulated, subtle, and nuanced responses from those with black and white political views.

. In the past decade, Mr. Seeger has received the National Medal of the Arts from President Clinton and has been fêted at the Kennedy Center. A recent profile in the Washington Post style section proclaimed him a "national treasure" and America's "best-loved Commie." A few years ago, Mr. Seeger was invited to speak at the National Press Club. Just two months ago, the Library of Congress held an all-day tribute to him. After all of this, shouldn't a new documentary give its audience an accurate and honest account of his life?

In Mr. Brown's film, Bruce Springsteen calls Mr. Seeger a great "citizen-activist" on camera. There are more accolades from all the usual suspects — Bonnie Raitt, Natalie Manes of the Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez, and Peter Yarrow and Mary Travers. But when it comes to specifically addressing Mr. Seeger's politics, whom do we see on camera? First comes Charlene Mitchell, a former Communist Party leader and Presidential candidate, and then Henry Foner, a union official and lifelong fellow traveler.

There is no buddies name in this that I respect. And yes I am mostly black and white in my political beliefs. Proud of it. I'm way to the right of the tea party. Have been a patriot to the constitution and founding fathers since I was 12. Read lots and don't watch much TV. I KNOW the country is under attack from within and don't care for it at all.

He restated in both 1995 and 2000 "I'm still a communist."
It doesn't get any more transparent than that.

Guys he was an American. No matter what he thought or what you think. He was an American. Just like most of us don't like what this administration is doing or Carter Clinton Bush or Reagan or whoever is in office,we are all Americans. Freedom is accomplished by all involved. That is why we are free. Half of America make sure's the other half is in check. When one calls for incompetence the other stands strong. We compromise. Some of what he protested against we disagree with. But some of what he protested against we agree.I am of old ideology and respect the dead. No matter if I agree or disagree of who the person was.

Good riddance to a dead war protester. And a commie.
