Morrissey posted a lengthy essay via True To You addressing the Orlando massacre, and the current landscape of American politics.
“Although the gunman who massacred 49 people at an Orlando gay club is said to have been ‘repulsed’ by homosexuality, he nonetheless left behind a slew of self-adoring ‘selfies’; a handsome man gazing enchantingly at his own face,” Moz beings. “It is therefore acceptable for him to lovingly admire his own maleness, but it is not OK for other men to like other men. Does Islamic scripture say it is fitting for a man to sit alone taking adoring photographs of himself? I doubt it.”

“Meanwhile, Donald Thump, probably America’s next President, reacts to the Orlando massacre by explaining how, if the people within the club were themselves armed with guns, then there would have been fewer casualties,” he continued.
Hillary Clinton isn’t much better according to the former Smith’s singer. “Clinton is the face and voice of pooled money (and will therefore repay the established elite with whatever they want if she is elected),” he writes “and Donald Thump is George Wallace – hating just about anyone who doesn’t happen to be Donald Thump. Surely this is not 2016 America?”
If there’s a sliver lining Morrissey sees it in Senator Bernie Sanders.
“The true victory of the presidential race has been the independent success of Bernie Sanders, whose approach has been so sane and intelligent and measured that he has been therefore all but entirely ignored by the U.S. media, who cannot understand anyone who is not blood-thirsty. This is because Bernie Sanders is human, and one who unusually did not gain his position because of several billion invested dollars.”
