Published Apr 17, 2018After launching his own website at the start of the month, it took Morrissey all of two weeks to set the internet ablaze with another heap of controversial statements.
Following accusations that the press had been twisting his words late last year (for which he promptly had his bluff called) and promptly swearing off interviews, Moz has now sat down for a conversation that has been published through his own website.
Speaking to interviewer John Riggers, Morrissey explained that he sees no point to being interviewed by more traditional outlets, as "all journalists are megastars and the only aim of their interview is to express and establish their own personal views, and to hell with whatever the interviewee says."
He was also asked by Riggers about accusations of racism that have followed him throughout his career, taking the following stance:
As far as racism goes, the modern Loony Left seem to forget that Hitler was Left wing! But of course, we are all called racist now, and the word is actually meaningless. It's just a way of changing the subject. When someone calls you racist, what they are saying is "Hmm, you actually have a point, and I don't know how to answer it, so perhaps if I distract you by calling you a bigot we'll both forget how enlightened your comment was."
In addition, Morrissey spouted off about a purported link between halal meat and ISIS:
If you have any concern for animal welfare, for example, you cannot possibly vote for either Conservatives or Labour, because both parties support halal slaughter, which, as we all know, is evil. Furthermore, halal slaughter requires certification that can only be given by supporters of ISIS, and yet in England we have halal meat served in hospitals and?schools! UK law is pointless!?
Furthermore, Morrissey is upset that London Mayor Sadiq Khan "cannot talk properly":
London is debased. The Mayor of London tells us about "Neighborhood policin" — what is "policin"? He tells us London is an "amazin" city. What is "amazin"? This is the Mayor of London! And he cannot talk properly! I saw an interview where he was discussing mental health, and he repeatedly said "men'el"… He could not say the words "mental health." The Mayor of London! Civilisation is over!
Perhaps in an effort to fan the flames through burying the post, Moz also shared a picture of his cat, a beautifully-coloured furry friend that he surely doesn't deserve. He then followed that up with a "lost" studio track titled "By the Time I Get to Wherever I'm Going." You can hear it in the player below.
