Caving in to a few Twitter bullies is having some consequences for Lorde

Lorde aka Ella Yelich-O’Connor caved in to virtue-sginalling anti-Semitic bullies and cancelled her concert in Tel Aviv later this year.

Now she is feeling the brunt of her cowardly act:

A full-page advertisement in a major US newspaper has called Lorde a “bigot” for cancelling a planned concert in Israel.

The ad was paid for by the World Values Network and published in the December 31 issue of The Washington Post.

“Lorde joined a global anti-Semitic boycott of Israel but will perform in Russia, despite Putin’s support for Assad’s genocide in Syria,” the advert reads.

Lorde cancelled the Tel Aviv gig, scheduled for June, on Christmas Day.

“I’ve received an overwhelming number of messages and letters and have had a lot of discussions with people holding many views, and I think the right decision at this time is to cancel the show,” she said.

“I’m not too proud to admit I didn’t make the right call on this one. I’m truly sorry to reverse my commitment to come play for you.”

Israeli ambassador to New Zealand Itzhak Gerberg accused the 21-year-old ‘Green Light’ singer of “succumbing to [a] hateful agenda”.

A spokeswoman for Lorde said no one had called on her to boycott Russia, where she’s scheduled to play two shows at the end of May.

Oh right, so all it takes to shut down Lorde is for one person to call on her to boycott. Well, I call on her to boycott Russia. She should just for consistency’s sake.

The World Values Network ad also called out New Zealand.

Last December, New Zealand sponsored a UN resolution which both condemned Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, and even denied Jewish claims to the Western Wall, the area of Judaism’s holiest site.

Syria was, at the time, cluster-bombing Aleppo and murdering hundreds of innocent Arab children.

The ad said New Zealand’s “growing prejudice against the Jewish State seems to be trickling down to its youth”, and suggested she be more like Radiohead, Sir Paul McCartney, Madonna and Lady Gaga, who have all performed in the country.

Lorde is also the face of World Values Network’s latest fundraising push, featuring at the top of the group’s GoFundMe crowdfunding page.

In five days, supporters have contributed US$26,175 – almost all of that from a single donor.

Lorde had no idea what she was about in gutlessly caving in to Twitter bullies and Anti-Semites. They don’t believe in freedom of speech and seek to destroy Israel utterly. They are prepared to use any and all tactics possible, without even a hint of irony in that their tactics are in stark contrast to that which they think they hold Israel to account over.

The bullies are now trying to force an Israeli singer out of WOMAD. The latest claims are that Israel is committing genocide against Palestinians, which of course is complete rubbish, considering the population of Palestinians is actually increasing.

Activist mouth-breathing scumbags like Martyn Bradbury make false claims such as:

Israel’s de facto ambassador in NZ, David Farrar,  has run the Israeli propaganda line that Lorde is a hypocrite for playing in Russia and America because Russia is an authoritarian regime and America is run by Trump.

What this bullshit criticism utterly misses is the context here. Neither Russia or America are currently occupying a people to create a cultural genocide and bitterly punish them. Attempts to paint Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the 50 year illegal seizure and occupation of Palestinian land as the same thing is something only the truly desperate like Farrar and Israeli apologists would attempt.

[…]

Israel’s brutal 50 year occupation and theft of Palestinian lands is one of the great global human rights abuses on par with the atrocity of Apartheid South Africa and Israel with their apologists are always keen to paint any criticism of their cultural genocide as anti-semitism.

Martyn ignores the inconvenient fact that there was no such country as Palestine or even a people called Palestinians in 1968 when Israel liberated Jerusalem from Jordanian control. And he misses the inconvenient fact that both the Golan Heights and the West Bank weren’t Palestinian land either, they were Syrian and Jordanian respectively. Jordan has since made peace with Israel and not requested the return of those lands. Israel now commands them, and that is where it will stay.

Lorde is quite rightly being smacked around, because she is a virtue-signalling anti-Semitic bigot now she is part of the BDS movement.

If she is true to her new beliefs then I welcome her stopping using the following inventions:

  • USB flash drives
  • VOIP protocols used by Skype, WhatsApp, and any other company that allows VOIP calls
  • Viber
  • Google map, which now contains Waze software developed by ex-IDF soldiers.
  • Any form of data encryption, or compression software
  • Her cellphone

I hope she never gets sick and needs medicines and therapies developed by Israeli scientists…but the reality is she will of course use all of those, because she is nothing but a virtue-signalling gutless wonder.
