Roger Waters rolls out ‘F Trump’ world tour publicity stunt, ‘Trump is a pig’ message pleasing liberal masses

It’s not surprising when another celebrity offers up vitriol for conservatives, republicans, especially President Trump and the latest is Roger Waters, channeling a Michael Moore obsessed “F*** Trump” tour message. Waters also echoed his anti-Israel messaging.

In fact, the former Pink Floyd frontman kicked off his “Us + Them world tour” showcasing the Trump circus during a show-piece section of the show with the Pink Floyd Animals album song Pigs (Three Different Ones).

Various images portray Trump wearing lipstick, in a blond wig, in dominatrix leather gear and a naked Trump with a tiny penis. Waters brands the demagogue ‘Charade’.

While Pigs (Three Different Ones) is played, the inflatable Pink Floyd flying pig hovers over the audience with the world ‘MACHINE’ on its side and a speech bubble with ‘I won’ coming out of the mouth of a Trump donned in Kiss make-up.

Trump quotes cover the screen: “I think apologizing’s a great thing but you have to be wrong. I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong,” “A nation without borders is not a nation at all. We must have a wall,” “I was down there and watched our police and firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down” and “My IQ is one of the highest – and you all know it. Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure. It’s not your fault.”

Any publicity is good publicity?

Waters has been met with praise and support from liberal circles. He told Rolling Stone earlier this year that the tour would be “an exercise in resistance, not just to Trump, but to all the despots, dictators, thieves and ne’er-do-wells all over the world.”

“We have to organize our love in such a way that it becomes a potent and powerful enough tour to resist their narcissism and their greed and their callous disregard for the feelings of others and their absolute lack of the ability to empathize with anybody,” he said. “It’s a lack of empathy that creates a true sociopath like Donald Trump.”

This was NOT a concert about nostalgia, old Pink Floyd music, but a biased propaganda hit piece and many have walked out.

“Some people walked out. Others sat stone-faced. The majority stood and cheered, enjoying just one more Waters rant in a career filled with them,” noted the Courier Journal.

One poster wrote: “There were reports of pissed off Trump supporters walking out of the show. Let’s face it, if it weren’t for liberals, there’d be very little quality work to enjoy in the world of arts, literature and entertainment.”

The British singer’s set wrapped with Waters reading “Why Cannot the Good Prevail,” a poem he wrote in 2004 after George W. Bush was re-elected.

Water also reaffirmed his support for boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) against Israel over the allegations of occupation of Palestinian territories.  “I encourage the government in Israel to end the occupation,” Waters said to the audience, before singing his final medley, “Comfortably Numb.”

Waters claims he’s not anti-Semitic, writing in 2013 “I have many very close Jewish friends, one of whom, interestingly enough, is the nephew of the late Simon Wiesenthal.”

Any publicity is good publicity? Well, for Roger Waters and his liberal supporters, this is a very lucrative move.
