Roger Waters’ London Concert Rant One of His Most Antisemitic Yet
Last night, Roger Waters performed at the O2 Arena in London. And besides performing, he once again ranted about being cancelled, supposedly over “false” accusations of antisemitism.

Invoking the antisemitic trope of an all-powerful lobby (of Jews) silencing people and controlling politicians in foreign countries, and spreading the “blood libel” that we deliberately murdered Shireen Abu Akleh (not borne out by any of the evidence or findings) because we are racist – this rant – like the one in Birmingham – just reaffirmed how full of Jew hatred he truly is.
And the audience lapped it up.
We have received responses (below) from both @michaelgove and @Keir_Starmer expressing their grave concerns regarding Roger Waters’ current tour. We thank all politicians, across party lines, who have stood with the wider Jewish community on this issue.https://t.co/rRxX4Fmq3w pic.twitter.com/BOqwJUbdfJ— Board of Deputies of British Jews (@BoardofDeputies) June 7, 2023
