Radiohead’s Thom Yorke Hits Back At BDS-Hole Director Ken Loach


Fresh from cursing and flipping the bird at BDS-hole concertgoers, Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke has responded to yet another BDS call, this time from creepy director Ken Loach.


After signing his name to an open letter urging Radiohead to boycott Israel and rethink their scheduled show in Tel Aviv, director Ken Loach has issued a solo plea to the band.

In an op-ed for The Independent, Loach has responded to Radiohead frontman’s Thom Yorke’s claims that the protest letter was an attempt to “throw shit at us in public” rather than addressing the matter in a private conversation with the band members. Loach counters that Yorke’s comments are both “inaccurate” and “quite irrelevant,” citing a “moral obligation” to support the Palestinian people in what many have deemed “apartheid Israel.”

Loach goes on to reveal that he has made attempts to contact the band, but his requests have gone unanswered. “I don’t know who is advising Radiohead,” he writes, “but their stubborn refusal to engage with the many critics of their ill-advised concert in Tel Aviv suggests to me that they only want to hear one side — the one that supports apartheid.”

Loach continues to say that artists who don’t respect the cultural boycott against Israel are guilty of perpetuating the “injustice” against Palestinians. He closes: “Radiohead need to decide if they stand with the oppressed or with the oppressor. The choice is simple.”

Here is Thom’s considered response.

By the way, I called Loach creepy, because

But he said he didn’t regret his allowing child actors to be caned during the filming of his breakthrough classic, Kes. Loach famously likes to keep his actors guessing about their characters’ fate. He did not warn the boys, including the young star, David Bradley, that they were going to be hit for real when their characters were summoned to the headmaster’s office. “We planned that they all got an extra ten bob for every strike, so they were literally crying all the way to the bank,” he said.

No surprise that a moral degenerate like Loach would support BDS.

Update: Oh, this is good.
