Scared S***less

"American musicians who support boycotting Israel over the issue of Palestinian rights are terrified to speak out for fear their careers will be destroyed, according to Roger Waters. The Pink Floyd star - a prominent supporter of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel since its inception 10 years ago - said the experience of seeing himself constantly labelled a Nazi and anti-Semite had scared people into silence... 'My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice [against Israel]. There's me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there's nobody in the United States where I live. I've talked to a lot of them, and they are scared s***less." (Roger Waters: Pink Floyd star on why his fellow musicians are terrified to speak out against Israel, Paul Gallagher,, 20/2/16)

I don't think the Zionist mafia in the US could bear a repeat of one of this century's finest and most moving protest songs, Michael Heart's 2009 We Will Not Go Down (Song for Gaza).

Good to see this kind of censorship getting an airing in the UK. I suspect that little of it gets out in the US - and of course not in Australia, which I view as worse than the US in this respect. Interesting use of the term NAZI - that regime refined propaganda to a fine art:

Propaganda is what the other side does. Calling people anti-semitic and NAZI is apparently not propaganda when done by Zionists.
