Sadly, Jewish leaders in media are proud of this intimidation so they can use outspoken Israeli critics whose careers were ended as an example to the rest.

Like who? I thought it was very 'in' to hate on Israel?

Howard Stern for one. I'm a BIG Pink Floyd fan, and also listen to Stern. Howard has attacked Roger a number of times over the years regarding his criticisms of Israel. Stern won't drop it--he even works anti-Roger Waters comments into bits/games where no mention is even made of the politics--just slamming Roger. I don't hate Howard Stern (I used to be a much bigger fan until he watered down his content and got lazy) but he's an unapologetic Zionist. He has bad-mouthed Palestinians for decades, hates Muslims, primarily only hires Jews, and constantly defends Israel. Back in the 90s and early 2000s Stern held incredible media power, and if he began to attack you on air, he could destroy both your personal and professional life. Luckily he no longer has that type of influence, but he certainly has actively tried those tactics on Roger Waters but to no avail. You can google "roger waters howard stern" and read about some of the acrimony. Here is just a small taste: Audio

Oddly enough, in Israel there is far more discourse allowed against Zionism and Jewish chauvinism. It may be argued that it only seems like there is more discourse, mainly because there is almost none allowed outside of Israel, but it is discourse nonetheless. Jewish domination of mainstream media in the west (owning and running all of the major TV and Newspaper outlets), and fears of merely being labeled an 'anti-semite' by non-Jews in high media positions, are enough to keep them in line and silent on legitimate criticism of anything related to Israel or Jewish interests. It makes you wonder how such a small group of people are able to bring these nations to heel when they represent not only such a small population size, but whose interests are not really in line with the best interests of the nations in which they reside.

'In'? If you hate (which is a strong word to me) Israel because it's 'in', then you need to grow up.

Used to think that all this stuff about Jewish couldn't be true. That was until I came across my first personal encounter while working. Now, I know the truth, and after having one join the family (extended family by marriage) the rest of my family has seen the light as well. You can not bash Israel or Jewish people at all it seems. You can't criticize or even challenge them. I hope one day there might be change and people will wake up to this kinda shit happening all over.

Jews control music. I don't listen music any longer. There hasn't been anything worth my time since the 90's.

As a sound engineer, I think you are wrong. There's other reasons music is shit.

Q. How is Roger Waters like Princess Diana?

A. Their last big hit was the wall.

Pop stars care about "hits". To say Pink Floyd, Gilmour, and Waters didn't have gems that weren't commercially successful after The Wall is being disingenuous to their careers. Having "a hit" usually means you've jumped the shark as an artist and sold out for the $$$.

Why do entertainers' opinions on anything matter?

An entertainer who has gotten to the top on their own hard work has a set of skills that the majority of people will never develop. A key part of that skillset is a strong sense of charisma. I'm going to trust that the man who can direct the attention and interest of an entire stadium of people has a pretty good idea of a person or group's intentions. You don't read a concert audience without people skills.

Justin Beiber and Kanye West can fill auditoriums, too.

Entertainers are just that... for entertainment. I give not one iota of care what anyone thinks about political matters if they get paid to sing and dance or look pretty. Actors, performers, models, singers are not our brightest minds, but are just our court fools who serve to distract from the slight of hand the nobles perform.

They are people just like you and me, but they have millions of people who follow what they do and listen to what they say. There's a reason why celebrities get $100+ million endorsement deals.

Oy vey! But why would any of the goyim even want to speak out against God's chosen people? Don't you remember the six gorillion?
