It is official policy of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith to deny that Jews have inordinate power far in excess of what their small numbers would predict, and in order to disprove that antisemitic ‘canard’, they recently successfully pressured Major League Baseball to stop advertising an upcoming tour of musician Roger Waters simply because they don’t like his politics:
Major League Baseball (MLB) has stopped running promotions of Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters on its platforms, after caving in to pressure from a Jewish group that accused him of anti-Semitism.
In January, Jewish advocacy organization B’nai B’rith International began a campaign to protest ads for Waters’ new tour, ‘This is Not a Drill’, which appeared on MLB platforms. The group claimed that the musician is an “avowed anti-Semite” whose views on Israel “far exceed the boundaries of civil discourse.”
B’nai B’rith sent a letter to MLB, pointing to Waters’ support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, among other things.
In response, the League reached out the organization to assure them that “there are no plans to schedule more ads.”
Roger Waters did not immediately respond to media requests for comment. The famed rock star has been an unapologetic critic of Israel and its treatment of Palestinians. In an open letter, he argued that “to peacefully protest against Israel’s racist domestic and foreign policies is NOT ANTI-SEMITIC.”
Waters has denied having any prejudice against Jews (his own daughter-in-law is Jewish), noting in an interview with Democracy Now that pro-Israel groups use the accusation of anti-Semitism against “anybody who supports BDS or anybody who criticizes Israeli foreign policy.”
Concerning his own support for BDS, Waters has previously stated that the boycott movement “exists at the request of Palestine civil society as a whole” and is among the “most admirable” displays of resistance in the world.
Jews fear what comes out of the mouths of celebrities simply because of the enormous and undeserved influence the jewish-dominated media has afforded them.
When a star of the magnitude of Marlon Brando criticizes the power of Jews in Hollywood, America listens — and Jews have an apoplectic fit.
The Jews knew Richard Nixon didn’t like them, making comments such as “There may be some truth in that if the Arabs have some complaints about my policy towards Israel, they have to realize that the Jews in the U.S. control the entire information and propaganda machine, the large newspapers, the motion pictures, radio and television, and the big companies, and there is a force that we have to take into consideration.”
When the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) holds its annual conference, virtually every U.S. senator is obligated to show up and show their unconditional support if they know what’s good for them and want to get re-elected.
When the long-standing and popular U.S. Congressman, Paul Findley, published his 1985 book, They Dare to Speak Out: People and Institutions Confront Israel’s Lobby, the ADL and AIPAC were so outraged that they ran Findley out of office by pouring millions of dollars into the campaign of his opponent Dick Durban, a staunch supporter of Israel, the neo-cons, and the endless wars in the Middle East. The Jews were so satisfied with the philo-semitic Durban, they promoted him into the U.S. Senate.
But to suggest that the Jews have any such power to make or break political careers such as Paul Findley’s is an antisemitic ‘canard’.
Make no mistake: the Jews will never forgive Roger Waters for lending his fame to the Palestinian cause and for appearing in the documentary film “The Occupation Of The American Mind”:
