I'm absolutely sick of hearing left wingers trying to dictate to the world as if they are the self apppointed moral guardians. Politics to this degree in music is ugly.

I'm a 'left-winger' who often doesn't agree with Roger. But if musicians being political were a big problem in my eyes, I wouldn't have gotten into PF in the first place. DSofM made their left-leaning politics pretty clear, so it's not like it's something new.

This is such a bizarre thing to me. Regardless of what Israel might or might not be getting up to (and I am woefully lacking in knowledge on that particular situation), boycotting something because it's playing by the rules it set to itself is just peculiar to me. It's like when I see articles about famous people going on religious retreats to the Holy City and getting absolutely destroyed on social media as if they had personally committed a hate crime. It's weird
