Roger Waters Called Anti-Semite
Disturbed and Device singer David Draiman is tweeting mad over Roger Waters use of Pink Floyd’s famed inflatable pig emblazoned with a Jewish star at a July 18th concert in Belgium.
After The Algemeiner posted a story in which Jewish human rights group the Simon Wiesenthal Center called Waters an “open hater of Jews” for his use of the pig with the Star of David, Draiman — who is Jewish and has family in Israel — took to Twitter posting a link to the story along with a message. In all caps he tweeted, “I urge all my followers colleagues and friends to condemn Roger Waters’ flagrant display of anti-Semitism,” and he urged his followers to re-tweet his message. He also fired off a subsequent tweet, “Roger Waters…Anti Semite”
Waters is a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel and accused the country of “ethnic cleansing” and “international crimes” in 2012 speech at the United Nations.
When the debate continued on Thursday, and one Twitter user tried to tell Draiman that Waters isn’t against Jews, only Israeli government, he went off on another all-caps rant, in a series of tweets, “He can go f*** himself. The Star of David is a Jewish symbol. He didn’t put the Israeli flag on there (which would have been just as offensive) he put a Star of David. Hitler used a Star of David to identify Jewish prisoners. There’s no mistaking his intentions.”
