John Lennon would be 70 today, but did you know he was a Communiist?

I have a great deal of respect and admiration for his musical talent but if you look at and think about the words and their meanings of the one song "Imagine" you will see that it was political and communist.

He was also crazy or he would never have left a beautiful wife for the ugly piece of garbage he ended up with. I have known a lot of druggies in my time but not one of them would have left a beautiful wife for a swanky hoe like Yoko Ugly.

Drugs really do **** you up.

Towards the end of his life (late 70's) in NYC he was quite generous. I believe he was the biggest single contibuter to Bruce Ritter's Covenant House then in it's early stages.

So what? Is this a thread in honor of John Lennon? Or are we talking about him being a Godless America hating Commie?

So what you're basically saying is this:

"I would have respected the guy, if he didn't believe in something I don't agree with... So **** him"

Fantastic.

Why do you hate freedom of the mind so much?

You can't be serious. Communism is wrong thinking today and it was wrong yesterday and it will be wrong tomorrow.

Think what you wish in our Nation you are free to be an idiot all you want. Being anti-communist is always a plus, to true Americans.

How dare you claim that I hate anything or anyone let alone freedom to think. You go too far and if I were there I would slap you silly and at 6' 2" 236 I am very capable of it.

Glad to see I'm never proven wrong when it comes to you.

Freedom of belief is only right, when you feel it is.

Got it.

John Lennon wasn't a communist; he was a genius.

he was a genius, who happened to support communist ideas. don't know if he ever was "officially" a member of the party, but, intellectual honesty requires an admission that he did, at the very least, have communist tendancies.

Someone messed up the cross hair, but there is a target in this commie shrine to aim the nukes at (added bonus is that you will take out a whole slew of NY commies with the same shot):

I think it requires, even more importantly, that we ask ourselves, "So the **** what?"

and if it's no big deal, why all the outcry over it being mentioned?

his music was awesome, until he got hooked up with yoko, then he kinda sucked. never should have left the beatles

in some small way similar to what happened to David Lee Roth after he left Van Halen.
