Has Bono’s political posturing crossed the line?

U2 frontman Bono has always been controversial, but it seems he has crossed a line and is now attracting outright hatred.

The wave of abhorrence has been triggered by an on-stage outburst in support of mysteriously-dead Russian politician Alexei Navalny in prison – which came hot on the heels of enthusiastic support for Israel, in the face of that country’s genocide in Gaza:

Let’s have a few facts about Navalny:

Strange that Bono would want to praise a neo-Nazi, right after voicing support for a country that claims to be the nation-state of the Jews – a race that Nazis tried to exterminate.

Strange that he would want to support Israel, when its actions against the Palestinians in Gaza resemble those of the Nazis in Germany against Jews.

So perhaps it should not be a surprise that people have reacted as they have:

It’s a genuine shame because This Writer is becoming ashamed to admit I still like some of U2’s music.
