Madonna is trying to recover her posture as a human rights advocate after playing the jester for Israeli colonialism, apartheid, & genocide last month, just an hour away from where Israeli snipers were shooting down unarmed Palestinian kids. She did her banal song & dance about music bringing people together which could only be true if Israel wasn’t bombing Gaza & razing villages in the West Bank as she spoke. Now she’s released a music video titled “I Rise” featuring footage of political protests & acts of defiance. After strutting herself across an Israeli stage in defiance of the cultural boycott & sticking a Palestinian flag on the asses of her dancers, we’re quite clear just exactly where Madonna stands on human rights. If genocide pays, she plays.
