Peter Yarrow to Perform at ‘Women for Peace’ Rally Outside Pentagon
The following article appeared on
Free Beacon on October 21st
Peter Yarrow, convicted in the
1970's of "making sexual advances" on a 14-year-old girl, will
perform on Friday at a rally organized by the nonprofit Code Pink: Women for
Yarrow went to prison after making
sexual advances on a 14-year-old girl and her 17-year-old sister in 1970 when
they went to his Washington, D.C. hotel room to ask for his autograph, according to the New York Post. Yarrow pleaded
guilty to taking "indecent liberties" with the 14-year-old and spent
only three months behind bars.
The performer was pardoned by
President Jimmy Carter on his last day in office in 1981.
Yarrow has extensive ties within
liberal circles: he sang at John Kerry's 1995 wedding, performed at Occupy Wall
Street for protesters, and performed for Barack Obama's campaign. Yarrow is
also godfather to one of Kerry's children.
Yarrow has a history of social and
anti-war activism. He traveled to Vietnam to "apologize" on behalf of
the United States in 2005 for America's participation in the Vietnam War.
The two-day Code Pink protest is
called "Divest from the War Machine" and the activist will
perform at the "U.S. responsibility for the legacies of war" vigil.

His participation comes amid a
current climate of strong scrutiny of sex crimes in the wake of film
producer Harvey Weinstein's downfall. Many women are coming forward to tell
their stories of sexual harassment and assault, using the hashtag #MeToo on
Over the years, the performer has
repeatedly made excuses for his behavior in 1970. "You feel terrible about
it, make your amends,’’ he told the Baltimore Jewish Times in 2006. "In that time, it was common practice,
unfortunately – the whole groupie thing.’’
Yarrow came to fame as a member of
the music group Peter, Paul, & Mary in the 1960s.
Ed. We of the older generation
remember Yarrow as the Peter of Peter, Paul and Mary.Yarrow went to PRISON after making “sexual advances” to a 14 year old
in 1970. (Undoubtedly the only time he EVER did such a thing.)Yet here he is, performing
before the leftist group, Women for Peace. Shouldn’t these women ostracize
Yarrow for his actions; hold him responsible for the grotesque abuse of a
Of COURSE not. And the
Weasel Zippers site is right on the money with the reason for the liberal
groups’ “understanding” attitude and that is, Yarrow (like ALL leftists) is
above reproach “as long as he has the right liberal credentials.”
Yarrow has spent
decades advancing the leftist agenda. He asks no questions, ignores facts and
reason, in short, he is the perfect representative of the left. Such unwavering
dedication provides Yarrow the “right liberal credentials,” relieving him of
responsibility for little character flaws such as those associated with the
gross perversion of a child molester!
Get it? As long as you’re
“thinking” right, what you do doesn’t really matter!
