Morrissey Strikes Back: The Pin Is Mightier Than The Sword

Travis LeBlanc (28 May, 2019).

Excerpt:

"A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article about the iconic ex-Smiths singer and champion of the white race Morrissey and his drift to the Right and support of Anne-Marie Waters and her party For Britain.

I wrote that article in response to a minor controversy sparked by a picture of Morrissey wearing a For Britain pin backstage at one of his New York concerts. “OK,” I thought “Here’s my excuse to write that fanboyish Morrissey article I’ve always wanted to write but was just waiting for it to become remotely topical.”

On top of this, it’s not often that you find yourself uniquely qualified return a favor to one of your heroes. Morrissey has given me a lot over the years. Now, he finds himself in a racism controversy and under assault by mobs of SJWs, and I just happen to be an elite meme warrior skilled at battling SJWs and justifying racism. I write for a publication that guarantees that my spirited defense would be read by . . . well, someone. My lowly article may not be much against the combined arms of the mainstream media, like Tom Hanks firing his pistol at the encroaching panzer, but I’m older now, and I’m a clever swine, and it’s the least I could do."

An opinion & summary piece regarding recent events.

This type of article is shared as it is in the public domain and de facto up for discussion here (especially as this site is cited).
Anything I ever find to post should not be assumed to reflect my own views.
Also, people should feel free to draw anything currently being published ('good' or 'bad') to the attention of a 'discussion forum' - there's a clue in the name.

Regards,
FWD.

A garbage piece of “writing” from an openly admitted white supremacist and nationalist. This is the face of the new Morrissey ‘fan.’ Enjoy!

This does not deserve a place on the front page of this site. It’s trash, plain and simple.

Ugh, this is vile. Especially, re the owner of Spillers: "Good call, Ashli, as you have neither the face nor the body for porn."

Now we’re linking from the front page to openly white supremacist sites? I’m fucking DONE.

Stop using Morrissey as a way to publicize your disgusting ideas about the world. He is not part of any political party.

It should be removed, I think. But we all know how this site works - anything that can show Morrissey in the worst possibly light is promoted straight to the front page... whereas actually news or positive reviews take an age to appear there.

Absolute horseshit. There's been a load of positive reviews speedily posted. Get your head out of his arse.

Or, to reply like a sane human being: "You're right in that this is definitely representative of an extreme view of Morrissey but there have been plenty of more positive stories and reviews posted on the main page very quickly over the last couple of weeks, too."

I can't see why this is here at all. It's not Morrissey "news", is it? I mean, there's an actual new Morrissey interview not on the main page yet...

Lol. Was hardly an insane response. Some people just need told to fuck off, and orson swells is one of them. Irrational, biased, hypocrital psycho-fan. You can’t say boo about Morrissey without getting jumped on.

In keeping with most the hateful comments she got on here last week from members of Solo. This post is well at home here.

Counter-Currents is white separatist, not white supremacist. It is a crucial distinction. Please respect our chosen self-description if you want me to respect your pronouns.

As for your little tantrum: I seriously doubt you will take your toys and go home. That is simply a bad habit you got into in the nursery, and apparently, nobody loved you enough to flay it out of you.

Speaking for myself: I post a whole spectrum of articles here. Ranging from sycophantic to hateful, reasoned to irrational (including downright bizzare) and 'right' to 'left'.
I don't filter what I find - they all get posted as and when found.
If 20 'awful' articles appear all at once, it isn't because this site is 'suppressing' lots of positive ones. Perhaps consider that is just how things are reflected in the current media climate?
Top tip: the best way to engage with posts you don't like is not to bump them up with comments.
As for super speedy article promotion that meets people's (often unrealistic) expectations - well, in the real world, sites are not run on a 24hr 'instantaneous' basis.
I'm sure David is more than amenable to explain those types of site mechanics if you drop him a message - that said, it's the very small hours in his part of the world and you might have to wait for a reply...
Speaking of unrealistic expectations: I guess it's too much to think seemingly well-adjusted adults could discuss (or easily ignore) a range of diverse & provocative topics without descending in to waving fists angrily at computer/phone screens.
Being civil is so out of fashion I guess.
