    Baltimore Sun with a Tired Recycled Title - on a boycott of Moz’s Merriweather appearance tomorrow.

    Bigmouth strikes again: Morrissey’s racist rhetoric inspires boycott ahead of Merriweather Post Pavilion show - Baltimore Sun

    Excerpt:

    His return to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia this Thursday has prompted calls for a boycott from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

    “Under the circumstances, attending Morrissey’s concert is a form of financial support and, in effect, an endorsement of his bigotry,” Zainab Chaudry, CAIR’s Director of Maryland Outreach, wrote in an email to The Baltimore Sun. “Therefore, CAIR is calling on fans to boycott the event to protest his racist, hate-filled views and to send a strong message that we expect better from him.”

      Whenever I look for the “racist rhetoric” it’s always a bunch of gauge statements that allude to things that others might like. A pin and a vote
      an individual candidate. An old old quote from an old interview in the nineties. There’s an interview from the 2002s where he talks about immigration pretty plainly but I never see that quoted anywhere. I guess what I’m saying is that this piece did not deliver. There may be a reason for that

      Morrissey inspires boycott? I thought that loud mouth Yorkshire cricket legend had got in to enough bother in the past?

      People are bored with your bullshit. Go volunteer somewhere. You clearly have time and are seemingly deeply invested in social issues. Or maybe you're just a jilted former fan who has too much of your identity tied up in following a pop star and you feel betrayed.

      It isn't really about those views either or he would talk to actual journalists and not say something one week and deny it the next. Your hero likes to get people talking about him and has always had a knack for achieving that goal, often to his own detriment.

      Hate-filled views?

      Moz speaks up for the English working class - and to do so is described as hate speech. Ludicrous.

      This CAIR boycott is what i'd call a dialectical tension. I would not pay attention or comment on it. That would be most unwise.

      Like we're going to take an organisation created by HAMAS seriously? They are a wolf in sheep's clothing. I couldn't give a shit what they said. It's pretty clear they've brainwashed a certain swathe of the population into thinking they are victims.

      Do some research.

      WHY does it matter to you? I bet you set up ALERTS for every single post on MozSolo to see if we are going to be graced with your remarkable ineptitude

      On the contrary, I welcome them. I know it's a given, when checking this site, it's a guarantee you've got something NEGATIVE to say. So I like to drink my tea, or fix up a bag of popcorn and see you post your vitriol, it's AMAZING to see someone post that much HATE towards a single artist, or maybe YOU ARE concerned

      I suppose the only thing to do in Baltimore is to wear his For Britain badge with pride and tell this pernicious Islamic group to kiss his Irish arse.
