Roger is still not a US citizen... I'd like to hear him talk as much crap about his Queen as he does our Presidents.
me too, me too. but because he is still a british citizen it might prove kinda problematic

Well sort of in luck? He's having another go! The Israeli Defence Force's training was indirectly responsible for George Floyd's death.
It's like he's got something released to promote?

Sure, but first tell me which point Waters was making when he wrote it.

He was depicting a character who, among other things, was falling into racism and fascism.

So, what point did you intend to make when you quoted those lines?

It illustrates Waters' willingness to use archaic racial slurs while hiding behind one of his flimsy characters. Who was still using the word coon in 1979? Only Waters, hiding behind Pink. Thanks for your interest. Sorry if my reply cannot be twisted around to be used against me, if that was your intention. It seems like it might have been your intention.

I think this analysis of the use of that language in The Wall is simply wrong. Waters is not his character, nor is he 'hiding behind' the character. Waters is critiquing those attitudes, and that language.

You are failing to tell the difference between satire and reality.

With Roger saying what he did about Polly that probably was the nail in the coffin of him ever getting his stuff promoted on PF site while he is alive. We all agree that Polly's books really don't belong there. But Rogers vids and his other vids like this are not helping his supposed cause and pledge to be promoted on those social media pages.

I agree, it was quite a dumb, counter-productive move. But many 'fans' seem not to get the difference between being wrong and saying the right thing incorrectly, and go apeshit when they hear rog expressing their opinion in a blunt, uncensored manner cause apparently it renders his whole speech Invalid. Well guess what folks, he's always been like this. It's just his style of expression, so if you can't see the message beyond the formulation, why keep watching his videos ? It's almost like some of you enjoy being angry at him...
