Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters describes himself as “pro dialogue, pro peace, [and] anti authoritarian.”…[But f]ar from standing “in defense of Mistress Liberty,” Waters has become an advocate for antisemitism, Vladimir Putin’s imperialism, and the Chinese Communist Party’s genocide.
For years, the British rocker has expressed violent, unjustified hatred for the state of Israel, referring to it as an “apartheid state” and the construction of a “settler-colonialist cabal.” He accuses Israel of ethnic cleansing and genocide and publicly supports the radical Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, known to harbor many antisemites. Meanwhile, he refuses to condemn Palestinian terrorist organizations like Hamas….
[T]he Anti-Defamation League makes clear Waters’ rhetoric and activism is antisemitic…. Miami’s vibrant media landscape will have a chance to hold [him] accountable when he comes to FTX arena on August 23. Every reporter covering the concert should note, at a minimum, that Waters has a history of antisemitic comments.
If reporters want to dig deeper, Waters provides plenty of material for stories, much of it similarly unflattering…. [I]n his new show he calls President Joe Biden a war criminal for “fueling the war in Ukraine.”…That’s not the only time Waters has sided with a murderous authoritarian. He called verified reports of Beijing’s enslavement of Uyghur Muslims and massacre of Tibetan Buddhists “absolute nonsense.”

Waters’ fans should be aware of his antisemitic and pro-authoritarian rhetoric. This is not to say Waters should be canceled…. But free speech is not without consequences…. Waters’ history of gross and indefensible comments might just hit him where he feels it the most––the money that fuels the “new car, caviar, four-star, daydream.”
