HOWARD STERN ‘LOSES IT’ AT PINK FLOYD’S ROGER WATERS OVER ANTI-SEMITIC REMARKS, Jeff Dunetz writes at his blog, The Lid:

“He’s got to shut up, Roger Waters, If you take a look over there — Roger, genius, Mr. Pink Floyd — there are so many Arab countries and so much land around Israel, if you threw a pin in a pool, that’s what Israel is.  Israel was created in the middle of a desert in a portion of the world no one wanted, until Jews showed up there.

Where do you want the Jews to go, Roger? You want them just to go back to the concentration camps? What is it you want, f**head?”

Well, possibly. Watching the movie version of The Wall, Waters’ bitterness over his father’s death at Anzio leaves the distinct impression that he wishes England had stayed out of WWII entirely. Waters’ isolationism and hatred of Israel really makes him seem like the Pat Buchanan of British rock, as I wrote a decade ago.

Actually, anyone who has dipped a toe into politics will know that the hate comes disproportionately from one end of the spectrum. It’s difficult to gauge these things empirically, of course. One test would be to compare the number of people who boast of their hatred. Twitter Lefties often declare in their self-descriptions “hates capitalism” or “hates Tories”; but there are very few bios proclaiming “hates socialism”.
