Well, that's Morrissey back on the left then...
What do you think of QAnon? What does comms mean? Is that short for comments?Also relevant - & hilarious if you've been trapped in the left Twitter hellscape for the past NINE years.
Novara is like Faux-Woke For Dummies.

Don't let the odious white nationalists fool you.
These conversations are happening on the left & they're not incompatible with diversity or inclusion. They make it workable.
Moz's opinions about Islamic terrorism are left-wing.
He blames governments & money.

From his autobiography:

His attitude to Islam is left-wing.
He's got issues with organised religion esp. when it comes to sexuality, but he doesn't hate the faithful.

On the Orlando shooter:

His attitude to borders is left-wing. Contrary to popular belief on Twitter open borders is a marginal & unworkable policy & isn't about being nice to refugees.
Moz uses strength to mean confident & ordered, not draconian & racist.

So how did he end up getting such a kicking for his Facebook post on the Manchester Bomb? And on a side note why does he think the left-wing has become right-wing?
It all pivots on Charlie Hebdo. A tiny left-wing anti-racist magazine's staff were massacred for blasphemy & some anglophone lefties blamed the victim.
It raged for months, but this sums it up:

Moz seems to have been silent on the issue but a year later Orlando happens & Moz is mad at Trump:

At the same time there was a refugee crisis in Europe & no coherent policies to deal with it. Extremism was increasing in badly managed camps. Troll campaigns exaggerated or fabricated refugee related crime. And Erdogan was using refugees as leverage, deliberately sending high numbers over the border to cause resource breakdowns & local stress.
The left was struggling to cope with a fascist group from a non-Western background & with complex problems that couldn't be papered over with a slogan.
& social media had turned us into witch hunting like-junkies.
So what did Moz actually say?
That he was angry. That words didn't make up for broken bodies. That May (famous for a hostile environment policy that could deport your Grandmother but not a terrorist) had bad policies. And he takes pot-shots at politicians, the press, the Queen & Islamic State.

He was immediately accused of blaming all immigrants, all Muslims & all brown people.
They read their own 'dog-whistle' assumptions into it, instead of looking at it from his slightly off-kilter perspective.
Moz hits up.
They hit down.
So, it's not really surprising he became receptive to Douglas Murray & Anne Marie & thought they were being unfairly smeared.
Red Pepper accused him of Islamophobia & increasing community tensions as if all the endless online hot-takes didn't do that on a minute by minute basis to build their platforms.

For the past 3 years people have been posting unbelievably hateful & cruel things about a man, who while prone to invective & living in his own bubble, has never been anywhere near as vile as them.
His only crime is speaking in Morrissey & not joining a political Twitter tribe.

Are Nerak and Uncle Skinny connected? Someone said to me they thought Nerak might be a Freemason. Not sure about that as it is mostly men who are Freemasons. I think they have ladies days at lodges. Not totally sure if women can be Freemasons. It was to do with her Scottish connections the 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasons. She has connections with London as well doesn't she? And connections with law and the theatre. She must be a bright and cultured lady.
WTF? skinnys atari game gone haywire.
In 2017 Moz persuaded his bandmate Mando Lopez to post a Facebook comment for him on the French Leadership debate between Marine Le Pen & Emmanuel Macron.
View attachment 59959
He was immediately called a racist & tried again.
View attachment 59960
& got denounced as a racist again.
View attachment 59961
So why was he bothered?
Probably because he was thinking of his political mission to ban abattoirs. Animal rights activists are routinely dismissed in the press as either violent extremists or irrelevant loons.

Since taking over The National Front in 2011, Marine Le Pen had rebranded them as The National Rally & had shifted most of their policies to the left, hoping to become a more respectable nationalist party along the lines of the Scottish Nationalist Party whose fascist roots are almost completely forgotten.
During the debate her most controversial statement was a baseless jibe about Macron having an offshore bank account. And the French hard left saw both candidates as equally undesirable.
View attachment 59963
With very little to go on the press & therefore the public fell back on labels; Le Pen was far right & aggressive, Macron was a rational centrist.

As Morrissey is a militant animal liberationist with an extreme abolitionist stance - this was a very bad sign.
After Moz decided For Britain was the best hope for British veganism & the press went batshit, Love Music Hate Racism put out a statement that's so bigoted, divisive & wrong that they should probably try overcoming themselves.
Everything about it is dubious - so I'll put the loaded words & objections in notes:
Moz doesn't single out Muslims, Jews, & Black & Asian politicians - he's against all animal slaughter, but worries about religious & traditional exemptions - he mentions Spain, supermarkets, Nicola Sturgeon, Nigel Farage, Henry Bolton, The Queen, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Dick Gregory, & David Cameron.
He wants all abattoirs banned.
Yeah - he's getting his facts from marginal sources but that's mainly because the people who should be helping him fact check are too busy calling him a racist.
Just because you think you can hear an echo doesn't mean there is one - smearing & guilt by association are forms of prejudice.
Moz has been slagging off London & diction at least since the 80s, if not from birth - Johnny Marr, Cilla Black, David Beckham - have all failed his standards. It's camp.
Other people being racist towards Diane doesn't make her above criticism. But again, it's camp.
Hitler put the word socialism in his party name - so blame him.
Anne Marie Waters was in The Labour Party for 10 years getting called a racist for trying to highlight the sexism in Sharia Law. Yes, she's cracked up - but if the left wasn't so blind to sexism & homophobia she would probably still be on our side.
Yes, it is accidental. A pull-quote can mislead without being a misquote.
He's right not to trust the media - look at the state of this statement.
He has never backed down in the face of outrage - it burns itself out because it's fuelled by nothing but hot air.
He's been emboldened again - at any moment he may commit genocide by singing Golden Lights.
His views aka Veganism (which is a protected belief) have no place in music or society & they condemn them. Not keeping up with legislation & being unable to separate Morrissey's views from people they've associated with him isn't a good sign in an anti-racism charity.
He's more dangerous & extremist than Clapton??????? In what universe is whinging about Sharia Law & Islamic State (when you're a queer vegan) more dangerous than telling foreigners in your audience to get out of England because it's a white country???
Shut up bigots like Morrissey & his racist friends... this is just hoping old people will be so galvanised by a desire to disassociate themselves from their tainted Smiths collections that they'll turn up to a boring fundraiser.

Moz could do himself a favour by using boring phrases & never joking whenever he mentions something associated with race or religion but he'd probably consider having to conform worse than getting an unjust kicking.
(It's difficult to get a decent screenshot of Moz's website - so I cut, pasted, printed & photographed it).
I can't find a similar statement about anyone else, not even after Wiley's 48 hour Twitter rant against Jewish people.
