2015 Man of the Year: Howard Stern

Howard Stern, the longtime King of All Media, became a Lion of Judah in 2015 when he took on notorious anti-Israel activist and Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters for his support of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

Stern, who hasn’t been shy about flexing his pro-Israel bona fides on the air, ripped Waters a new one in October after the aging rock star lashed out at singers who perform in the Jewish state.

"He’s gotta shut up, Roger Waters," Stern said at the time. "What is with Roger Waters and the Jews?"

"Where do you want the Jews to go Roger?" Stern exclaimed. "Where do you want them to go? You want them to just go back to the concentration camp? What is it you want, f*ck head?"

The rant was praised by the Jewish state’s defenders and prompted a larger conversation in the media about the anti-Semitic undercurrents of the BDS movement, which seeks to wage economic warfare on Jews.

Stern’s comments even prompted backlash from Palestine Liberation Organization, a onetime terror organization responsible for murdering Jews.

However, Stern didn’t back down. In a subsequent broadcast, the announcer slammed weak-kneed supporters of Israel who are too scared to defend the Jewish state in public.

"Stand up for what you believe and f*** those who can’t get with you," Stern said, revealing that several prominent celebrities had thanked him for thumping Waters.

"Don’t stand silently by when others will sit there and condemn and throw out words like apartheid and all that bullshit," Stern told his audience. "Fight the power. You hear me?"

He continued: "I am a supporter of Israel. I am a fan of Israel. I believe Israel is a necessity," Stern said. "It’s a place where people have hope because they had no where else to go."

For his moral fortitude, the Free Beacon offers the king of all media a hearty Bababooey.
