Excerpt:
"The conservative views that Morrissey possesses these days are beyond confounding because the dude practically invented the concept of “snowflake.” As a feelings-first animal rights activist of undefined sexual identity, young vegetarian Morrissey was basically the prototype for the kind of man that conservative groups would eventually rally against. Once he even said that he makes a point to leave gender out of his lyrics so that he can “write for everybody.” This is the kind of statement that usually makes the right panic that the world is sliding into an inclusive, nonbinary, androgynous future in which they’ll no longer have ownership of women.

Over the past seven or eight years, Morrissey has released statements and given quotes in interviews that repeatedly show him to be anti-Muslim, pro-Brexit, horribly racist and — just in the past few days — a raging misogynist who makes a point to defend Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. He even said that “rape is disgusting… but we have to see it in relative terms.” Basically, every single time that Morrissey has opened his dumb mouth lately it has been a complete disaster. (Sound familiar?)"

Besides the obvious lack of proofreading, this type of groundhog day, cookie cutter stuff with a Pope of Mope chucked in for good measure is getting rather tedious.

What's kind of tedious is people like this author missing the fact that his nationalist xenophobic views are nothing new. Seven or eight years?
And it's kind of funny too that people think that being accepting of other people's sexual preferences means being a liberal who sees all people as equal. There is a lot of bigotry, racism, classism, and every other ism in the LGBT community.

I feel like all this outrage is from people who have never really known anything about morrissey... you are not going to box him in some right or left wing view...

Yes, and let’s not forget he’s homophobic (All the Lazy Dykes), sizeist (You’re the One For Me, Fatty), pro-violence (Sweet and Tender Hooligan), an apologist of football hooliganism (We’ll Let You Know), makes fun of the terminally ill (Girlfriend In A Coma), objectifies women (Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others), transphobic (Vicar In A Tutu) and openly promotes paedophilia (Hand That Rocks The Cradle, Reel Around The Fountain, Handsome Devil, etc). And who can forget how he mocked the Moors murders victims by laughing at them on Suffer Little Children? I also should also add he mocks the disabled in Yes, I Am Blind... ah but, no, most of them were written by the Good Young Morrissey, not the Bad Old Morrissey.
