** "The Trial" has the [[LargeHam judge]] say the line "[[ChewingTheScenery TEAR DOWN THE WALL!]]". Ten years later, although said in a different context, USefulNotes/RonaldReagan said something similar to Mikhail Gorbachev when the former told the latter to tear down the UsefulNotes/BerlinWall.

** In the years since the album was released, neo-Nazi "white power" rock became an actual genre.

** In the years since the album was released, neo-Nazi "white power" rock became an actual genre. In TheNewTens, the "alt-right" has become popular among right-leaning youth, with open racism and sympathy for fascism.

* UnfortunateImplications: In the revived tour, "Goodbye Blue Sky" featured an animation of symbols of war and greed like the Shell and Mercedes logos being dropped out of planes like bombs. The juxtaposition of the dollar sign and the Star of David unintentionally invoked the "GreedyJew" stereotype. This, along with Roger Waters' support for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement against Israel, lead to [[http://www.haaretz.com/world-news/.premium-1.580138 charges of antisemitism from Jewish groups]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhatAnIdiot: It has to be noted that Floyd Pinkerton is an idiot, both young and old, starting off with the reason he got violently ill as a child - taking care of a diseased rat. (It's hinted in the film his getting into bed with his mother while sick ''killed her''.)

** Waters' worries about unruly audiences at rock concerts in 1977 would be even more ominous with the incident in Cinncinnati in 1979 at a [[TheWho Who]] concert.

** Not only that, but Michael Ensign, who plays the Hotel Manager. It's funny if you consider that he might have quit LA and moved to New York City, where he would suffer another series of migraines as manager of [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} the Sedgewick Hotel.]]

* MoralEventHorizon: Pink, when he forms an actual white supremacist movement. (This is if we take his perspective at face value.)

*** And what are hammers best used for, aside from pounding in nails and pounding things into shape? Tearing down walls, as shown in the "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2" sequence. The symbolism couldn't be more fitting.
