Bill Morrissey, as he is known professionally, is one of New England’s best singer-songwriters.

Every time this happens there’s always a dozen articles with the title “bigmouth strikes again”, if only the smiths had done a song called “very stupid cunt keeps shitting himself let’s talk about it”

estela, Thursday, 30 May 2019 10:14 (three years ago) link

xxxp it does. the article is 90% rehashing, but includes bits from a couple of interviews with Asian artists, also interesting to see how he has tried to manage all of this using lawyers but appears to have given up.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Thursday, 30 May 2019 10:22 (three years ago) link

Around the time he sued NME, Morrissey forced the Word magazine into an apology over a review that said he was “paying lip service to anti-racism while talking like an old Tory immigration spokesman”

Why in the world would they apologize for that basic statement of fact

Sam Weller, Thursday, 30 May 2019 10:28 (three years ago) link

Because libel law in the UK is ridiculous and Morrissey likes to have his lawyers send out threatening letters and as far as editors are concerned it isn't worth the hassle?

Obviously! Although the statement was about as inarguable as "Morrissey has hair."

He has tweeted someone's blog post in defense of himself. It's all about veganism and shaking things up, you idiots:

In his open support for the party For Britain , (which seems to have caused the most controversy in recent years) Morrissey has explained his admiration for the party leader's (Anne Marie Water) vegan lifestyle and huge dedication to animal protection. He has long expressed how he is tired of the same two political groups running the game again and again, he wants to see a shake up in politics, as many of us do. Much of the criticism levelled at Morrissey's endorsement of For Britain stems from accusations that the party are either “racist” or “anti-Islam” (a meaningless claim when you consider that even some ex-Muslims openly support the party, and they have members of all backgrounds).

It goes on.

He could say Hitler was right to kill the Jews and legions of his fans would defend him and claim he's misunderstood.

Walking up the street just there I noticed someone had left a book on the wall outside their house. It was Morrissey's autobiography. There was a little not poking out of it which read:

I'd say 2005ish. While I'm at it, Kanye should've died in 2010 after releasing My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

"In America
The land of the free, they said
And of opportunity
In a just and a truthful way
But where the president, is never black, female or gay,
And until that day
You've got nothing to say to me
To help me believe"

Has it been confirmed that the tickets were donated to the raffle, or is it possible the group just bought the tickets themselves and put up the raffle partly for publicity?

birdistheword, Friday, 4 November 2022 20:17 (three months ago) link

I'm sure they bought the tickets themselves and are now raffling them off for publicity. The point is, VDARE believes that Morrissey and Morrissey fans are "their kind of people" (in as many senses of that word as you like).

wearing wraparounds (Noodle Vague), Friday, 4 November 2022 21:14 (three months ago) link

A bit off-topic, but a childhood friend of mine went in big for the whole evangelical thing after we more or less grew apart, and that also hooked him into extreme right wing politics. He was one of the few people I personally knew from school who made it clear they voted from Trump on 2016 election day, but I didn't realize how deranged his worldview had become until he actually trashed a news report on Richard Spencer for using the term "white hate" - like everything actually important about that story didn't register a single word from him, he was only angry about that phrase as if "white hate" was inherently racist towards whites, and from his reasoning, I could only guess it was some Fox News bullshit he swallowed whole. That was around 2017, the last time I thought of Spencer.
