Cummings would know. He took little interest in politics until he visited the Soviet Union in 1931. Then he became an ardent Republican for life. In the fifties he was a passionate supporter of Joe McCarthyone day a niggercaught in his handa little star no biggerthan not to understand"i'll never let you gountil you've made me white"so she did and nowstars shine at night.-----------------------------------a kike is the most dangerousmachine as yet inventedby even yankee ingenuity(out of a jew a fewdead dollars and some twisted laws)it comes both prigged and canted
That's unfortunate, but unless he's exhorting me to be a member of the US GOP or to support witch hunts, it's still a little piece of wisdom. Other than that, he was just a man, just poet, a few plays (not actually familiar with his plays).
Actually I think that's a healthier reaction to a visit to the Soviet Union in 1931 than many others
So being an anti-Semite is ok so long as you're not a communist?
I'm not sure he is an antisemite. Or a racist.This is poetry. Like art in general it can be opaque and foggy. At least Cummings can be. I'm not sure I've ever understood a single poem he has written.MaybeIt's justAll a pile ofHorseshit.Anyway it's not something crude, foul and blatant like a Leunig cartoon or something.
Never known of a witch hunt worthy of support. Never expect to.

Sol - I've never believed that Nietzsche was a Nazi-loving jerk, but that doesn't stop people from repeating that accusation either, over and over and over and over again. I'm sure E.E.Cummings was a poet.
