MLB will not schedule any more promotions of Roger Waters

February 8, 2020

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball will not schedule any more advertising on its platforms promoting music artist Roger Waters.

The leadership of the Jewish advocacy organization B’nai B’rith International sent a letter to baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred last month criticizing the sport’s involvement in ticket sales for Waters’ “This is Not a Drill” tour. MLB.com was among the organizations sponsoring ticket presales.

B’nai B’rith President Charles O. Kaufman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin said Waters’ views on Jews and Israel “far exceed the boundaries of civil discourse.”

Waters has supported the boycott, divestment, sanctions movement known as BDS that presents itself as a nonviolent campaign for Palestinian rights and does not endorse a specific solution to the conflict with Israel. Israeli authorities say the movement’s true aim is to delegitimize the nation and eventually wipe it off the map.

1. I'm surprised, thought this would be because of his constant dissing of drumpf.

I like Roger Waters a lot and this sounds like zionist BS to me.
