Katy Perry And Madonna Speak Out Against Antisemitism

265

Props to a couple of the world’s top pop stars today, who have very different styles but a similar desire to speak out against antisemitism.

First up we have Katy Perry, who years ago tweeted out a prayer to Israelis under rocket attack and whose own father has been accused of antisemitism.



My heart was heavy today.
For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity, where the Nazi murdered about one and a half million men, women and children mainly Jews from various countries of Europe.

George Santayana

Next up we have Madonna, who expressed alarm over growing antisemitism in Europe.

Internationally-recognized pop music sensation Madonna on Thursday said anti-Semitism and “growing intolerance” in Europe, and especially in France, has reached a level that “feels like Nazi Germany.”

During an interview with Europe 1 radio that is set to be aired in-full on Friday morning, the pop diva said “anti-Semitism is at an all-time high,” in France and Europe.

Setting aside a fall off-stage during a performance at the Brit Awards Wednesday night in London, the 56-year-old star expressed her concern over the “climate of extreme fear” that she said has surfaced across the European continent, and which she likened to the era during the rise of German fascism.

“We are going through crazy times and it reminds me of Nazi Germany,” Madonna told the radio network.

Madonna lamented that the spirit of freedom and celebration of diversity that she stated she had previously observed in France is now “completely gone.”

With many celebrities seeming to side with evil these days, those who speak out against it deserve props.

No, not that kind.
