Billy Joel Just Took Brave Action After Trump Refused To Condemn Anti-Semites

After a group of white supremacists marched through Charlottesville on August 12, chanting “heil Trump” and “Jews will not replace us,” leading to the killing of 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuries to 19 others, President Trump refused to condemn the neo-Nazi perpetrators, instead blaming “many sides.”

Rock superstar Billy Joel, has made it a point to stay out of politics during his more than four decades atop the charts, telling Rolling Stone just last month, “I try not to get up on a soapbox and tell people how to think.”

This time however, he felt compelled to take action. (Photos below.)

The 68-year-old Joel is the son of Howard Joel, a German Jew who escaped Germany during the early days of Adolf Hitler’s genocidal reign. So, for Joel, this is personal.

While never addressing the controversy in word, the piano man’s actions speak volumes. As documented by his daughter and ex-wife below, Billy Joel took the stage at last night’s concert wearing a yellow Star-of-David, akin to those Nazis forced on the Jews, on the front and back of his blazer, clenching a fist in defiance.

Both women express pride in the musician for taking the bold stand and with good reason. For Americans concerned by the white supremacist hate that has infected the White House and our communities, last night, Billy Joel spoke for all of us.
