Thanks for pointing that out Cody and I totally agree. I also really hesitated about sharing that photo. Unfortunately the word pig is frequently used that way. And we were grateful to Roger Waters when he devoted his entire 11-minute “Pigs” song to Trump. During the song, the screen was filled with some of Trump’s more infamous racist & sexist quotes. They also flashed unflattering images of Trump including him wearing a KKK hood & doing Nazi salutes. A common visual for Waters since his Pink Floyd’s days has been their having a massive pig fly over the audience with progressive political and anti-fascist statements. During this concert, the flying pig had a skull image of Trump with the words “Ignorant, Lying, Racist, Sexist, Pig” on one side, and “F— Trump And His Wall” on the other. The audience for the most part loved it, and I must admit that at the time I didn’t even think about how unfairly this depicts pigs. But as this meme is unfair and can be offensive to our fellow vegans, your comment has helped me decide to delete that photo. Thank you
Must have been fun! Given their history, I’d imagine the Beatles would still be huge in India. I thought my days of big concert events was long past, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see 6 of my favorite all time bands/performers. One small regret is that Robert Plant turned down a huge financial offer to reunited Led Zeppelin at the concert. Hopefully some day I’ll get to see them …. 🙂
