“THE KEVIN BARRETT SHOW”
EXCLUSIVE BROADCAST:
Gilad Atzmon on free speech, self-censorship, and the legacy of George Orwell


Gilad Atzmon, who will be performing tonight in Madison, Wisconsin, says the loss of freedom in today’s world is being driven not just by overt power grabs, but by a sort of Orwellian self-censorship that is pervasive on the left. His latest project is a re-reading of George Orwell – who, Gilad says, saw it all coming.

By coincidence, my latest Press TV op-ed invokes Orwell:

Unfreedom Tower casts a dark shadow over ‘Gulag America’

BBC bio: Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: born June 9, 1963) is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year, he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded thirteen to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.” His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to [bogus] allegations of antisemitism and racism from [idiots among] both Zionists and anti-Zionists.

His most recent book, The Wandering Who, has drawn accolades and outrage.
