Dreary, droning, unlistenable commie folk-singer Woody Guthrie once called Donald Trump’s dad a racist SHOCKA!

No it doesn't.

No it doesn’t.

How bad would a Woody Guthrie song have to be if it didn’t even get released?  By the way, I bet you’ve never heard of this. You probably have heard of the late “Conscience of the Senate”. (A lower deep in my profound cynicism about the left and the universities was opened when, immediately after Sheets’ death, I read about some extremely radical left-wing black female university prof at West Virginia lecturing her students about why Byrd was an okay guy. Kickbacks, that’s why. “Look at all the free stuff he’s given us.”  I’ve always known that a lot of people were stupid and destructive, but my natural inclination is to attribute at least nebulously good motives to them. This level of meretricious venality came as something of a shock to me. I mean, if I were a black radical I’d take a pass on making excusing for the Klan.)

And why do these guys always sound like they’re writing lyrics for retarded children?

Anyway, according to CNN we should all be very concerned about whether Trump can “answer” for his father’s “racial history”.

  • I bet he likes his son even less. Arlo is a Republican.

    • Didn’t know that — love playing Arlo’s “Motorsickle” song. When Bob Dylan became a “Jesus freak” I remember a lot of heads exploding over that one. And when he spoke out against Soviet persecution of dissidents, definitely bad career moves. Respect.

    • David Murrell

      Yes and it must be awkward for Atlo and his band to play folk music to predominantly left-wing audiences.

    “This machine kills discourse”
    That will be on my guitar as soon as I learn how to play one.

    Then I would do a Borat version of Woody Guthrie all across the college campuses of North America and the snowflakes would never catch on.

      Throw the Jew down the well.
      So my country can be free.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Well, when I meant Borat, I meant some acclaimed SJW from the 1960’s that has come out of retirement.
        I mean do the whole thing like the movie Forest Gump where our hero is inserted into all sorts of historical pictures and films and of course Wikipedia.
        A phoney documentary to go along with it would be perfect!

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I was just taking the piss, man.
          You mean a documentary like this:

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Yes, almost exactly that, but with actual famous 1960’s types reminiscing about how he was at the center of all things 1960’s.
            Hell, I’d even get some doctored vintage film of our hero jamming with Jerry Garcia and being the first one to turn Timothy Leary onto LSD.
            If I stuck to dead people interviews, I think I could keep the joke going for a solid year, and by that time the damage would be done.

    There’s an interesting contrast between how much progressives love ‘reformed’ murderers and how much progressives love to hold conservatives accountable for the opinions of their parents/ancestors.

      Also how much they complain that people should not have to answer for anyones actions but their own, up to and including family members of terrorists, unless they are on the political right. Then they need to answer and atone for stuff their great-great-grandfathers second cousin did.

    Critics of Bob Dylan, behold and enjoy the ‘Bob Dylan clip’ from ‘Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story’ ……

    I wonder when conservative and establishment Republicans (or pro-Cruz types) will start to pick up on this too? And while I’ve seen plenty of pro-Trump maniacs they’re nothing compared to the absolute anti-Trump comments psychos I’ve seen at Instapundit and Ace’s HQ.

      This is not new, nor did the reporter dig into the case beyond the federal involvement. Fred Trump’s disinclination to sell houses to Blacks went further than the requirements of the FHA and resulted various financial penalties in the late-Fifties. As for coverage of this, given the extreme fervour with which every aspect of DonJohn’s life is being examined, probably not.

        It’s interesting to see this next to the way the press vetted Obama.

    I remember arlo’s story about a young bob dylan comming by regularly to see his dad even as the old commie was sinking deeper into huntington’s chorea his dad was reduced to mumbling and slurring lyrics as muscular control was lost. Arlo claims that impaired delivery was carefully copied by dylan who found it authentic and real and based much of his folk act on singing as one who has a motor neuron wasting disease. explains a lot .

    His politics aside,this is funny
