Morrissey compares fast food to Norway massacre
telegraph.co.uk ^ | 07/29/2011 | Amy Willis

The former frontman of the Smiths, who is a staunch vegan and animal rights campaigner, drew the comparisons at a concert in Warsaw, Poland, on Sunday where he is currently in the middle of his summer tour.

Before singing Meat is Murder, the 52-year-old British musician told the crowd: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead [sic].

"Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried s--- every day.”

Earlier this year the singer also said killing a stag is the same as killing a child.

If it wasn’t for Johnny Marr, nobody would have ever heard of this guy.

Ain't got any time for "animal rights" lunatics. They turned Spain's judicial system upside down by granting "human rights" to apes. Why don't we just elect horses to be senators, you know, like how Caligula tried to make his horse a consul?

Oh I’m sure those comments went over real well in the country that gave the world Kielbasa.

And this nit wittery surprises people? Anyone listen to The Smiths back in the day? Loved the music back then, but these guys were a bunch of Leftist dopes. Eurotrash.

Or how Obama appointed Tim Geithner to a similar position.

Shut up and sing.

Unless he's singing "How Soon is Now?" I just say "Shut up."

A 52 year old with all of the emotional maturity of a 15 year old. How sad and pathetic is that?

I’d love to see your long list of bands who weren’t . : )

It would be a pretty long list. The a lot were American bands, not European.

You said :

” rap, industrial, older grunge and techno, classic rock “

Rap ??? Best industrial music came from Europe . Techno , too . Grunge ? You mean like Nirvana ? Classic Rock consists of myriad sub genres . I daresay the majority of musicians who fit into this “ genre “ are lefties , too .

You must be a little high right now. I would never, and have never said I liked Rap music. I couldn't even find any other posters on the thread that did. That quote you have is something I didn't write.

I do have most of the stuff the Beastie Boys put out, but I generally don't count that as Rap.

I found that thread. Boy, that pic of Morrissy is a shock to the system. Looks like a lot of clean living and eating right there.

This freak show known as “Morrissey” is merely expressing the reality of much fanatical vegetarian “thought” (sic) — if you really believe the rhetoric that gets spewed continually then you believe that humans are no more precious than chickens (maybe less so according to a lot of these freaks).

Not saying there can’t be a more “moderate” vegetarian who is not a fanatic, just that a lot of the “animal rights” rhetoric is just this extreme in its background and implications.

I have no use for this disgusting clown, but he does provide the useful service of showing what the useless idiots really do believe.

also not saying there are not significant variations among different “animal rights” views, simply that there is a lot of extreme rhetoric which does not receive critical analysis from people who think they are so so smart (usually precious adolescents) in taking up this stuff
