So Seeger and Guthrie sang anti-fascist war songs again like “Reuben James”.?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrZjJsIA1EI. ? ?When Stalin started ?Cold War? and built nuclear bombs and missiles against U.S., Seeger sang peace songs that put blame on U.S. . During 1940?s Seeger?s songs glorified union workers?until they became prosperous, anti-Communists. Then Seeger ridiculed their new homes in the suburbs with ?Little Boxes??http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUwUp-D_VV0.
When ?Communists started ?Wars of National Liberation?, Seeger went back to singing war songs like ?Cristo ya nacio? which compared a Communist guerrilla soldier in Nicaragua to Jesus.?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWdG9tCpjSw. ?Seth Grossman, Executive Director
