Glad I got to see Pink Floyd at Arrowhead back in the day. Awesome show and no political bullshit.

Waters tickets were pretty pricey, glad I skipped it. He is a dick. Talented but a dick.

I love hearing what foreigners have to say about our politics, when you know good and well they'd resent you for being petulant about British politics.

You know. People commenting about someone's politics on a political sub forum.

The fact that I tried to sound smart while completely butchering the English language. Just woke up. Give me a break. I meant pot meet kettle. :-):-):-)

I'm just saying Pink Floyd has had politically driven songs for years. You guys are just now caring because you feel like you have to protect Trump for some reason. Both political parties are so extreme right now. Just enjoy the show if you made the decision yourself to be there. Why look for something to offend you so much that you would walk out and waste your money. Trump wouldn't.

OK.

I think it's ok to like music from artists you don't agree with politically. I also think it's ok to be offended when the artist goes out of their way to rub their politics in your face. It hurt me deeply when Katy Perry held hands with Hillary, for example. :-)

Here's the whole show. He goes off on Jews towards the end. Great show though.

I get that music and social causes have been tied together for an eternity. And, music and politics are tied together as well. That said, when I go to a concert, I want to hear the music. I don't give a shit about their politics or their constant message of social injustice. That's just not my thing. We have 24hr news outlets that do nothing but spew their agendas - both left and right. I don't need and don't want to hear that BS when I'm at a concert. JMHO

Would I storm out of the concert? No, I just wouldn't have gone in the first place. I tend to research the concerts I go to anymore. If it's not solely about the music, I just take a pass on going.

That's just not correct. In fact, a huge part of the reason that Trump won is that the Republican party is far too squishy.

Anti-Semitism has been rising on the Left for some time.

I don't think there is a single person that likes him or thinks he has an IQ above 80. They just like him because he pisses off intellectuals.
