Don’t expect Morrissey to show up at your next Thanksgiving feast anytime soon, meaning you can write him off for Christmas and Fourth of Ju-Luau as well. The former Smiths front man set his sights on the holiday he renamed “Thankskilling” and threw in a few shots at President Obama for good measure over at True To You, a Morrissey webzine. From the LA Times:
“‘Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit,’ reads the post.”
Well that only makes dinner half as awkward as it would’ve been had we invited racist Uncle Stoney. Don’t let him near the kids table. No need to warp their idealized little minds just yet.
I can admire Morrissey for sticking to his guns here. But I can think of at least five things ahead of turkey pardoning that I would lecture President Obama about on my website. My dismal economic future, the shortcomings of the Affordable Care Act, and drone warfare are all topics way ahead of turkeys for me. Unless it is mega-turkeys, terrorizing the cities and killing millions. They must be stopped.
