Morrissey, the former front man for The Smiths, who is now pursuing a successful solo career, has been spotted wearing a badge for the British political party he supports, according to a photograph taken following a concert in the United States, sparking outrage from the usual suspects.
For Britain made a minor electoral breakthrough recently winning council seats in Essex and Hartlepool. The party was established by the former UKIP leadership contender Anne Marie Waters and has attracted support from ex-BNP councillors and activists as well as those who previously supported UKIP.
In a recent interview, Morrissey said: “I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters. It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory constant switching to be pointless. For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish ‘racist’ accusation. I don’t think the word ‘racist’ has any meaning any more, other than to say “you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist.” People can be utterly, utterly stupid.”
Whether Morrissey sticks with For Britain remains to be seen. He has faced criticism from “utterly, utterly stupid people” in the past (aka the fake left, et al) and threats of protests outside his concerts following similar remarks.
Regardless, Morrissey seems to be an ethno-nationalist at heart who regularly writes songs about his political beliefs and social attitudes, which invariably upset the snowflakes and liberal media.
One of the best from Morrissey is this song concerning his ethnic roots and emotional patriotism.
