Former Smiths Frontman Morrissey: At What Point Do We Say Aloud That There's a Problem In Islam?

Maybe the UK isn't quite done -- if beloved and also much-derided mope-rock titan Morrissey has had it with the polite-fiction euphemisms for radical Islamic terror, maybe people have finally had enough.

At one point in his post about the incident, Morrissey calls for leaders to officially say "what we all say in private," by which he appears to mean condemning Islam.

Or, you know, admitting the truth that while Islam itself may not be the problem, there is a real and serious problem within Islam.

Or, as Spin does here, we can continue pretending that away.

"Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an 'extremist,'" he writes. "An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?"

Morrissey has had a long history of saying more-than-questionable things about immigration in Britain, and last year called the Brexit decision "magnificent."

Here's Morrissey's full post, which is of course subjecting him to attacks of "racism" for saying things which are rated True But Forbidden.

Celebrating my birthday in Manchester as news of the Manchester Arena bomb broke. The anger is monumental.

For what reason will this ever stop?

Theresa May says such attacks "will not break us", but her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues. Also, "will not break us" means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken -- thanks all the same, Theresa.

[Islamic London mayor] Sadiq Khan says "London is united with Manchester", but he does not condemn Islamic State -- who have claimed responsibility for the bomb. The Queen receives absurd praise for her 'strong words' against the attack, yet she does not cancel today's garden party at Buckingham Palace for which no criticism is allowed in the Britain of free press. Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an "extremist" An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?

In modern Britain everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private. Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections.

Morrissey

I guess what he's asking is, as regards when we need to speak frankly about the carnage inflicted on us every month, how soon is now?
