The famed rock band Radiohead has found a slew of fans on the far right after forcefully coming out in opposition to Palestinian human rights activists.
Among the influential English music group’s new admirers are some of the most notorious demagogues in U.S. and Israeli politics – including Glenn Beck – Fox News and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s extreme right-wing administration.
Radiohead has been hyperbolically sold as the ‘Beatles of the 21st century’. (ed: but not by me..!..i hasten to add..)
But unlike the Beatles’ John Lennon who was a committed revolutionary socialist and anti-imperialist – Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has allied with the pro-colonial right wing.
