Radiohead Frontman Thom Yorke Flips Off Palestinian Protestors

Radiohead has been my favorite band/Pop Music performers over the past 20 years. Other favorites of mine have been Jeff Buckley (who died), Jill Scott (who is a Muslima), D'Angelo (who is probably too stoned to have any coherent opinions), White Stripes (who are trendily pro-immigrant and probably hardcore Leftists), and Arctic Monkeys (who only express the opinion that Rock Stars should keep their mouths shut when it comes to their political opinions).

I am so happy to see Thom Yorke stand against these Jew-haters. Thank God for him.

From Jerusalem Post:
Just a week and a half before they’re scheduled to perform at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park, English rock band Radiohead continued to battle the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. 
During the band’s Friday night concert at the TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, several activists raised Palestinian flags as well as a “Radiohead: #canceltelaviv” sign, and held demonstrations outside the venue, causing lead singer Thom Yorke to respond. 
According to Consequence of Sound, prior to the band’s performance of “Myxomatosis,” Yorke reportedly exclaimed, “Some f#cking people!” while staring out into the crowd. 
He was also caught giving the middle finger to the flag wavers. Be the first to know - Join our Facebook page. Radiohead have faced a number of protest over their decision to play Tel Aviv, including at Glastonbury. 
Speaking recently to Rolling Stone, Yorke described the situation as “offensive” and “an extraordinary waste of energy,” saying: “I don’t agree with the cultural ban at all, along with J.K. Rowling, Noam Chomsky and a long list of others... 
There are people I admire [who have been critical of the concert] like [English film director] Ken Loach, who I would never dream of telling where to work or what to do or think.” 
Yorke called it “patronizing in the extreme” to presume Radiohead is unfamiliar with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, pointing out that guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s wife is an Israeli Jew.
Here's an incredible concert performance from Radiohead:

Inchoate, airy-fairy nonsense from a bunch of old lefties. Lame.

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan admits the only reason for being in the Paris Climate Treaty was to get money from the U.S. and other more wealthy nations. Now that the U.S. has pulled out of the treaty, there’s no reason to expect the financial benefits.

Proving yet again, for the eleventyth time, that the entire construct of the Paris Climate Treaty had nothing to do with the actual climate (ie. weather), and everything to do with economic wealth distribution.
