In the context of Morrissey being apprehended for a few things he's said to have said, how's this in comparison for monstrous institutional incitement to hatred and ethnic cleansing? - http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012...tal-war-islam/
And an interesting article about the prejudiced rants printed daily in mainstream newspapers http://www.mailwatch.co.uk/2010/10/1...o-media-myths/ How do they get away with that?
Ok, so this is a court trial with a verdict and such at end
meaning there is gambling involved
so, what do the odds makes put Moz's chances at winning?
True, there's risk, we must be worldwise, but if he plays it straight with his legal team, I think he had a more than 95% chance of winning. It's common for press to exploit and warp perceptions to sell with sensationalised headlines, but this infringes on rights. So NME's gamble has been called. Still the case will of course attract lots of interest, but it'll be done and dusted quite quickly.
By the way, the concert in Stockton does not look as if it really were that much better than concerts given in 2009. The people in Manila and Horishima would have surely liked to also get a concert like this.
And of course this post is not going to get through because, you know, of those biased Japanese and Irish-British moderators.
(a) the case will be settled out of court the day before (as they almost always are), or
(b) Morrissey will be very grumpy on those three evenings and the gigs will have little chance of going ahead...
For goodness sake, there are slightly more important things going on; the Hollie Greig case for instance. If you want to see a man that's gone it alone in the courts fighting for justice, see Robert Green ... or Dr David Halpin. These are people of outstanding courage ... not a bloated a pop star with more money than you could imagine. Morrissey will do just fine without our so-called 'support'.
Nevermind if his comments were misconstrued in the NME, if someone were to really take him to task it would be for his erroneous output on the Chinese which he was still thrashing at the Hawick gig last year. Very sad. I don't know what's happened. Morrissey was very interesting in 1994 but ... not now.
Those comments may have been made in light of his apparently sudden discovery ... but he didn't speak with context. He made a stupid, ignorant generalisation to ruffle a few feathers and further cement his victim complex. The latter of which we've had in chapter and verse for God knows how long.
Oh, and anyone with any awareness of animal welfare (those who aren't more concerned with mere posturing & pointless browbeating) knew about the horrors of animal exploitation in China as far back as 1979.
Do you really call people 'retard'? How old are you?
I'd argue Morrissey did speak in context as the interview clearly shows him talking, immediately prior to the "sub-species" remark, about the specifics of animal treatment in China. Was the remark also made with an eye to dragging media attention his way ? Perhaps but I don't know how relevant that really is...
Personally, I really wish I could be there to show support for Morrissey. Why shouldn't I? For years his music has supported me through all the good and bad times. As always, I wish him the very best - as I'm sure most true fans do.
I know why you're dreaming, because it's the only escape
