Morrissey: The Loony Left Forgets Hitler Was A Leftist

The Guardian reports:

Morrissey has made an extraordinary – even by his standards – series of pronouncements in a new interview published on his website, attacking halal meat producers, Theresa May, Diane Abbott and Sadiq Khan, among others. Accusations of racism have long dogged Morrissey, who once referred to Chinese people as a “sub-species” and said that British identity was under threat from immigration.

“As far as racism goes, the modern loony left seem to forget that Hitler was leftwing,” he says now. “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.”

He argues that the worst form of racism is against animals: “If you eat animals, isn’t it a display of hatred for a certain species? And what gives you the right to eat another species or race? Would you eat people from Sri Lanka?”

Morrissey last appeared on JMG when he praised a far-right homocon extremist.
