The former Smiths frontman has become an increasingly controversial figure in recent years for a string of remarks and his support for the far right. He voiced support for EDL founder Tommy Robinson in the wake of his sentencing for contempt of court, saying: Its very obvious that Labour or the Tories do not believe in free speech
I mean, look at the shocking treatment of Tommy Robinson. He described halal meat preparation as evil and requires certification that can only be given by supporters of Isis

Yeah, he has a brain that hasn’t been eaten away by Leftist moths.
In the UK, he’ll get the Tommy Robinson treatment.
According to the fake news MSM there are only two political outlooks, "center" and "far right".
Is this another instance where “far right” equals anyone who is not a pinko?
It’s astonishing how the Left has evolved from the “Free speech! Do your own thing!” hippies of the ‘60s and ‘70s to the intolerant banners and book-burners of the 21st century.
More like Far Center.
**WE** ARE THE COUNTER CULTURE.
It’s interesting how the Left defines “Far Right”. I have read some of what the European Far Right parties stand for and for the most part I can’t say I don’t blame them.
The Left’s idea of Far Right seems to me to be Center Right more than anything else. The Pendulum has swung so Far Left than anyone trying to move it back to any kind of common sense is labeled Far Right. In a way it is becoming the same here.
Well, good for him.
He may not be able to speak his mind for very long without being jailed.
Because with the Left, there is only one opinion on every topic : theirs.
Now the hipsters and Gen X are going to have to decide just how reprehensible they are. In just what bucket do they belong.
The tide is turning.
A gay vegan emo singer who’s got a fatal illness is ‘far right’ akin to a neonazi.
Thanks for the reminder of one of my favorite songs.
Banning his records will sure teach him to say they don’t respect free speech!
I saw an interview with a professor on Australian TV the other day and he called Putin a right wing white nationalist because he is a populist. Not a blink from the interviewer. Such cognitive dissonance. These people can convince their own corrupt minds of anything to suit their own agenda
The title ‘Record Store’ almost sounds as antiquated as saying “Village Blacksmith”.
I still get CDs, but I know I’m in the minority.
I have no place to use LP’s, but wouldn’t mind a good stereo.
I put a car into the ditch one wintertime whilst listening to “Aqualung” on 8-track. Why into the ditch? I had just reached out to get a freshly lit bowl of some green leafy substance. I fumbled the pass and dumped hot embers into my lap.
This shows my age a bit.
I hate it when that happens.
I have thrown a lit cigarette out of the window on the freeway, only to have it boomerang and fly onto my new shirt.
My friend said ‘Serves you right for littering!”
