Anti-Semitic rocker attacks Trump and his family


Rolling Stone gushed about a former Pink Floyd singer's upcoming tour:
See Roger Waters Emasculate Donald Trump With 'Pigs' at Tour Rehearsal
Waters is British. He has a lengthy history of anti-Semitism.


From the Jerusalem Post last October 28:
Former Pink Floyd artist and avid anti-Israel protestor Roger Waters is facing backlash for his Israel views as American Express cut funding for his tour, according to Page Six.
An American Express source that spoke to Page Six stated, “Roger is putting on a huge show. The company was asked to sponsor his tour for $4 million, but pulled out because it did not want to be part of his anti-Israel rhetoric.”
From Rolling Stone on November 5, 2015:
Roger Waters may not want to "waste a single precious breath on that asshole" after Howard Stern accused the Pink Floyd co-founder of wanting "Jews to go back to the concentration camp," but on Stern's radio show this week, the host made it clear he wasn't going to lay off the subject. "I'm not the only asshole," Stern said. "I'm just the only asshole brave enough to take him on. For some reason, it's become very important to Roger to tell artists where to perform. There's so many countries with histories of abuse and slavery, but he's very focused on Israel. To me, he comes off like an anti-Semite."
Stern's co-host Robin Quivers was confused by Waters' acerbic response to Stern. "I think it's odd that instead of backing up what he believes, he calls names," she said. "Isn't that exactly the problem in the Middle East? When does he get to the point of throwing rocks?"
From the Times of Israel on December 12, 2013:
Having previously defended Roger Waters from accusations of anti-Semitism, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Thursday reluctantly acknowledged that “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories” have “seeped into the totality” of the former Pink Floyd frontman’s views.
The ADL was responding to comments Water made in an interview Saturday with Counterpunch magazine comparing Israeli treatment of the Palestinians to Nazi Germany.
“Judging by his remarks, Roger Waters has absorbed classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and these have now seeped into the totality of his views,” Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the ADL), told The Times of Israel. “His comments about Jews and Israel have gotten progressively worse over time. It started with anti-Israel invective, and has now morphed into conspiratorial anti-Semitism.”
Added Foxman: “How sad that a creative genius could become so perverted by his own narrow-minded bigotry.”
While many celebrities hate Trump -- it is the in thing, don't you know -- I wonder if Trump being the first president with Jewish grandchildren has anything to do with this fellow's hate. The Waters show includes an attack on Ivanka, who converted to Judaism.

Most people who hate Trump are not anti-Semitic, but just as there certainly were a few racists in the anti-Obama crowd, there definitely are some fascists among the anti-Trump crowd. The first minority fascists seem to go after are Jews.

"We have to organize our love in such a way that it becomes a potent and powerful enough tour to resist their narcissism and their greed and their callous disregard for the feelings of others and their absolute lack of the ability to empathize with anybody," Waters told Rolling Stone. "It's a lack of empathy that creates a true sociopath like Donald Trump."

I don't think Waters knows what love is. Pray for him.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. I've been tired of Roger Waters since Pink Floyd's 1983 album, "The Final Cut". Waters can't get over the fact his father died in WWII and his childhood suffered for this, like millions of other children around the world. So Waters' life mission has been to make the rest of us suffer, too.

  4. I always liked Pink Floyd's music. Not so much their politics. And it's true that the British have never gotten over World War II. Anybody ever watched "The Wall?" - Elric

  5. Leftie musicians everywhere do not seem to have woken up to the fact that, post Manchester, their megabucks gigs are about to suffer huge revenue fall-offs.

    Dislike the Islamofascists yet, Leftards?

  6. What a shame, I always really liked Pink Floyd. Have heard for years about Waters and it has soured me on the music. The guy sounds like he has serious pent-up rage, and anger management issues.
