The Story Behind The Song: “This Land Is Your Land”    



  By: Dr. Jake Jacobs
   Published : February 2, 2018


Most Americans know Woody Guthrie's classic folk song "This Land is Your Land," but few know the anti-Christian, pro-Communist motivation behind its creation and behind Guthrie's Marxist politics. "This Land is Your Land" was written in 1940 as a direct response to Irving Berlin's "God Bless America," which Guthrie hated and criticized as being nationalistic and against the spirit of socialism.  

Guthrie, who loved the writings of Karl Marx, was reflecting Marx's primary goal written in his infamous book the Communist Manifesto, where Marx declared that all private property should be abolished. While many have attempted to revise and reinterpret Guthrie's controversial communist legacy since his death, Guthrie himself was never afraid to let his true communist colors shine. In addition to writing for the Communist Party's newspaper, he openly attended Communist Party events and spoke of the need for Marx's ideas in America. As Guthrie once said, "The best thing that I did in 1936 was to sign up with the Communist Party."

While attacking President Franklin Roosevelt and capitalism, Guthrie cheered Joseph Stalin loud and long, defending the evil Hitler-Stalin Pact of August 1939, and the Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939, while all along singing songs and writing articles praising the mass murderer Stalin. How hypocritical that Guthrie sang songs about poverty, suffering in America, and attacking free-enterprise, all while supporting Stalin's sadistic-socialism that had already starved to death or murdered 12 million people by 1939.

This land is our land from California to the New York Island, but it is not a land that believes that state socialism should be allowed to destroy life, liberty, equality, and justice for all.
