That’s interesting because it does make me wonder the extent to which he’s effective in his endeavour to use his work and his platform to legitimise the far right.
I posted a video a while ago of Mark E Smith talking about how there were too many refugees in Manchester (which was picked up and used in far right YouTube videos to reinforce their message). Most fans of the Fall and MES (like me) don’t really consider them/him to be racist but his far right talking points fit right in with fascists. (Not to mention he was an abusive bully, and I know people who have said this first hand).
Kanye supports Trump etc.
I don’t think it’s necessarily that weird that Morrissey fans don’t understand why their favourite is fash scum who need to be silenced.
