Leading up to their concert in Israel scheduled for next week, Radiohead have been bullied by BDS-holes, in an attempt to get them to cancel. You may recall lead singer Thom Yorke slammed BDS, prompting Roger Waters to go after him.
Now his minions have tried to ruin one of Radiohead’s concerts. York’s response? Fantastic!
Pro-Palestinian activists waved flags and banners protesting Radiohead’s arrival in Israel on July 19th and called for a cultural boycott of the Jewish state during a performance at the Transmight Festival in Glasgow, Scotland.
Activists from Glasgow Palestine Action, Glasgow Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and Radiohead Fans for Palestine demonstrated outside the festival prior to the band’s performance.
Once the band the took the stage, they were met by a sea of Palestinian flags and signs.
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke appeared angered by the protestors, according to fans in the audience.
Prior to the band’s performance of “Myxomatosis”, Yorke reportedly exclaimed, “Some fucking people!” while staring out into the crowd. He was also caught giving the middle finger to the flag wavers.
Not just “reportedly” – you can see it here:

The set Radiohead played has been described as “mindblowing.” We are looking forward to much of the same in Israel next week, where they will perform in front of a more appreciative crowd.
