Jews Lash Out at Roger Waters Over “The Wall” Bit He’s Been Doing for 30 Years

Roger Waters has been doing this bit from The Wall for like, decades now.

I don’t know how anyone in the world could not be aware of this.

New York Post:

Controversial rock frontman Roger Waters is back in hot water after seemingly cosplaying as a Nazi SS officer — and comparing deceased Al Jazeera journalist Abu Akleh to Anne Frank at a recent concert in Germany.

His stage costume featured crossed hammer imagery reminiscent of that based on a fictitious neo-Nazi organization featured in the 1982 film “Pink Floyd: The Wall.”

The inflammatory performance, which went down last week at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, opened up with an announcement on a screen that read: “On a matter of public interest: a court in Frankfurt has ruled that I am not an anti-Semite.“

“Just to be clear, I condemn antisemitism unreservedly,” the message continued, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Waters, 79, has become notorious for making controversial remarks, infamously comparing the State of Israel to the Nazis over their treatment of the Palestinians during various press interviews.

The “Another Brick in the Wall” legend’s comments have sparked outraged with many critics accusing the rock star of anti-Semitism.

In this latest performance, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer could be seen prancing about on stage gussied up in what appeared to be an SS uniform. Hanging above him were Third Reich-style red banners but with the swastika swapped out for crossed hammer insignias.

This is not “in his latest concert.” It’s the exact same concert he’s been doing for years and years.

How does a journalist not know that, or not look it up?

Honestly, I very much believe he wore that at “Live in Berlin” in 1990 after the fall of the wall, though I’m not going to go watch the whole thing right now.

Elsewhere during the spectacle, Waters sang “Lay Down Jerusalem (If I Had Been God)” while displaying the phrase “F$%& the occupation.”

At one point, a screen shaped like a crucifix displayed the names of deceased figures, including George Floyd, the black man whose death at the hands of Minnesota police officers sparked global protest and resulted in the formation of Black Lives Matter.

Okay, now – that’s too gay, Roger.

Let’s just focus on the Jews, buddy.

Perhaps most controversial was the inclusion of Anne Frank, the Jewish teenager killed during the Holocaust, and Abu Akleh, an Al Jazeera journalist who was fatally shot last year while covering a raid by the Israel Defense Forces on a Palestinian refugee camp.

Many Palestinian sources, along with CNN, claimed that she’d been deliberately targeted by the IDF, although the latter has denied this claim, the Independent reported.

Either way, members of the Jewish community found this juxtaposition, as well as the concert as a whole, highly problematic.

Well, they’ve been finding Waters “problematic” since he started talking about their agenda.

He might offend them more because he’s attacking them from the left, and doesn’t necessarily only talk about Israel, but also about how Jews control the media.

I think he could be arrested in Germany for things he’s said about the Ukraine war. I’m surprised they didn’t come at it from that angle, instead of pretending to be shocked Waters is doing the same concert he’s been doing for 30 years.
