      Hmmm. I seem to have acquired a dedicated follower, by the name of Trill.

      Ah right, another skinny bomb.

      Methodology:...drop bomb, sit back, enjoy the ensuing frenzy, count traffic, prod cattle via aliases, carry on laughing. Rinse & repeat.

      People, just don't respond to this, you're just being fed bait & giving shithead skinny the warped satisfaction he craves.

      Wake up, he's using you. Block him & all his known aliases in your preferences & never respond to an 'anonymous' poster, i.e. me.

      End.

      You’ve been initiated. Trill likes to add Troll to posts that make sense or have a point. It’s odd but it’s his way of showing support!

      Nothing problematic about Melvis.

      He’s just another bitter, angry, washed-up cunt.

      His self-loathing and abject failure aren’t problematic for anyone but himself. ...and the twats on here that dwell up his anus.

      Every single time you use the word Nazi it's clear you have no idea who the Nazis were and what they did.

      Yeah their allusion that Morrissey was a pussy like them only to find out he's not. It must be heart breaking.

      Logical, but too hard for the antifa crowd to understand. Progressives are their own religion

      So you prefer the same mainstream outlets that have been promoting endless wars, mass immigration, protecting pedophiles and covering up corruption?. Alt Right means alternative to the right wing establishment

      The answer to this lame article is simple. Stop making musicians your idols. Let music just be music. Or you're gonna have to throw out pretty much 98% of popular music. Bowie? Pedo, Chuck Berry same, Varg? murderer , Morrissey? vegan alt right...the list is endless

      Well he’s right, they’re all problematic, even the milquetoast ones post 2000. The only solutions are to do away with art or lighten up. I fear the writer leans toward the former.

      I don't think it's really about "mainstream outlets" and you're just feeding your opposition by explaining it that way. It seems more to me that it's about a lot of right wing people who seem to have just started listening to Morrissey in the past year, but see him as a tool to exploit, attempting to influence his audience which, dwindling as it is, still is pretty large for someone pushing the viewpoints he appears to be. I'm sure that if Mick Jagger or someone else that well known was saying similar things many of these people wouldn't bother with Morrissey.
      But he's not only getting support from right wing bigots. He's also getting a lot of support from die-hard fans who either believe that "we can't really know" his true beliefs, or who always sort of leaned that way, or who just don't really pay attention or don't care.
      Several of the people that support him on this site are far from right wing bigots. But you never seem to let the facts get in the way of your theories. Just like you always say he is only does anything for the money when actually if he was trying to make the most money, and wasn't possessed by some need to constantly have people spitting his name, would do things much, much differently.
      There is no real reason his 90's success didn't keep building. He needs a publicist, a solid working relationship with a record company, and a good songwriting partner or team. It's his own doing that he doesn't seem to have all of those things. Anyone who wanted money and wasn't insane would do things much differently.

      All artists are problematic. Or all interesting artists anyway. Caravaggio was a murderer. Does that we mean we should burn his paintings? The things Morrissey says in interviews etc. will line the budgie cage this time tomorrow. The music will go on. Show me anything in the music that doesn't celebrate the dignity of the individual against the tyranny of the group. I'll take that any day.
