Pink Floyd co-founder explains meaning behind warning at the top of his show

by News Update

Pink Floyd’s co-founder Roger Waters warns fans on his solo tour that if they can’t stand his politics, “F off to the bar.” His show includes calling President Biden a war criminal, and firing a fake semi-automatic weapon into the crowd. CNN’s Michael Smerconish finds him just as passionate offstage. #CNN #News

This is what a measured disagreement looks like! We don't have to devolve into name calling and hatred, we can disagree about things without disrespecting the person. The world would be a bit better if more disagreements went along this way

Who have the Chinese killed? Muslims. Tibetans. And yes, suppressed their own people. Also, look at the oppression in Hong Kong since they took it back over

Isn't this guy a commie??

I love Pink Floyd but Waters is the one who needs to do more reading. It seems he cherry picks his sources rather than getting a complete view of all the facts. All the worlds major powers, US, Europe, China, Russia etc have done and continue to do terrible things.

Listen more to the people, not the propaganda. Talk more without hatred. Common ground. We all live on Earth.

Tawaiin DOESN'T WANT TO BE PART OF CHINA. AND THAT SHOULD F'N MATTER.
What a shame HE believes LIES AND PROPAGANDA. I'll not be listening to their music anymore.

I'm so confused… How are these musicians accepted by the right? I thought they didn't like celebrities sticking their nose into politics? Hm. It's almost like they don't have any beliefs. Why give this moron the air time? Stop acting like the left and right are two sides of the same coin. They are not. One side wants m4a the other side wants a Christian nationalist country.

Pink Floyd has never been short on controversy.
As a huge fan, I have gravitated toward that, especially in my youth.
Also, being involved (and on stage) for live concerts and festivals as an employee…
it is VERY hard for me to sit and watch even a fake machine gun being fired into a crowd.
The shooting in Las Vegas shook my stagehand and engineer community like no other.
Let's NEVER make light of it. Let's not joke of it. Just respect the fragile situation and people who allow you to make your art. Please.

Two opposing sides can exist as long as they're accountable the worst way to win an argument is through Force politics suck

They just lost tens of millions of fans, starting with me. My records are broken & tapes cut. Never attack Trump

If CNN is sooooo concerned about the welfare of illegal immigrants at the border, and that they feel it is a good and just situation….why is there no coverage on it ? How many CNN employees have invited illegal immigrants to stay in there own homes ? Will someone of reasonable intelligence please answer this please.

Good for my guitar mentor genius. Roger is King. Screw the anti democratic Republican traitors.

Meanwhile a whole cyber battalion of Russian bots active in threads reporting left and right any account rightfully pissed off from Pink Floyd pro China/Russia comments. Like this guy was the bait..
THANK YOU ROGER FOR AIDING THE RUSSIAN WAR EFFORT! Not 🙄

It's great that Waters speaks truth to power. Mainly against the USA. Amazing he gets a work permit to perform there. John Lennon was black listed for far less rhetoric.

He definitely went down a russian talking point rabbit hole. "23 million Russians" didn't die in WW2; 23 million soviet citizens did- the front line crossed the entirety of Belarus and Ukraine. Those countries and their citizens suffered the greatest losses losses;
