If you’re a long-term reader of Vox Political, you’ll already know what’s going on here, and that it has been going on for a very long time.
If you’re not, and you’ve believed all the claptrap that has been thrown at people who (in this instance) object – we don’t have to put it any stronger than that – to the hatred practised every day by the government of Israel and its propagandists across the world, then prepare to be amazed.
Either way, please take the time to watch the following video clip in which Roger Waters, the latest high-profile victim of a fake anti-Semitism narrative, explains why it is nonsense and how he feels about being targeted in this way.
Be warned – he doesn’t mince his words:
It has just been revealed that the Board of Deputies of British Jews – one of the propaganda organisations mentioned above – wrote to leading politicians in the Conservative and Labour parties, seeking support for false accusations against Mr Waters.
Among those who were happy to lend their name to this hate campaign was Labour leader Keir Starmer:
Starmer of course has to get in on the Roger Waters hate-fest.
He just loves banning things. pic.twitter.com/XvNnFyaFFt

Look at what he wrote to BoD President Marie Van Der Zyl [boldings mine]:
I found the examples listed in your letter, of instances in which Roger Waters has clearly espoused antisemitic views to his audiences, highly disturbing.
Which instances were these? Can Starmer quote what these instances were? Can he point us to audio-visual evidence of these instances that took place at well-attended concerts full of mobile phone-wielding fans?
Were they similar to the segments of the show that Mr Waters himself mentioned in the interview above – that clearly did not espouse anti-Semitism in any way?
Those that hide behind the excuse that artists in the entertainment industry should not be held to the same standards as others are utterly wrong. There should be no artistic licence for discrimination or racism.
When did Roger Waters ever hide behind any such excuse? Can Starmer point us to audio-visual evidence of him doing so? Or is it more accurate that he has never done anything of the sort?
Roger Waters… is now synonymous with spreading deeply troubling antisemitism.
Can Starmer demonstrate to us even one moment in which Roger Waters has done any such thing? I’m willing to bet real money that he can’t.
Views like this should not be given a platform.
That depends on what views Starmer was told had been espoused by Roger Waters. It is entirely possible that such views should not be given a platform. But it is extremely unlikely that Roger Waters ever did so.
Put it all together and it seems that Keir Starmer – a barrister who was once Director of Public Prosecutions – couldn’t be bothered to gather any evidence and weigh it up.
Perhaps he was busy expelling more Jews from the Labour Party and simply didn’t have the time.
