Pete Seeger

Presented Without Comment, But What Can One Say

On second thought, there is this paragraph from the Washington Post on Mr. Seeger song, "If I had a Hammer".  It says more about the enemies of America than this Forum ever could.

It was known in its original form as “The Hammer Song” and did not achieve popularity when the Weavers recorded it. But the lyrics drew the attention of federal investigators who during the 1950s thought that, used in songs, words such as “peace” and “freedom” were codes for left-wing subversives and communists.
