Steven Patrick Morrissey, better known to his fans as just Morrissey, took to Facebook yesterday to lambaste the English politicians who have done nothing (in his words) to either condemn, or name the evil that exists in these Islamic jihadists who continue to terrorize the planet with their cowardly acts of fundamentalist, sharia-inspired mass murder of innocents.
The stage was set for a man who spent many years behind a microphone and could empathize with the situation as it unfolded in Manchester. This could very well have been one of his shows and his fans. His words cut right to the chase:
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. 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.

This is what most of us are saying and what many who are not saying, are thinking. Morrissey is dead-on right here and all of his emphasis on calling out specific politicians and even the Queen herself, is appropriate. We're not talking about a disagreement of opinion here. We're not talking about budget talks, or taxes. And we're certainly not talking about the weather (or the religion of global warming). We are speaking about a despicable act of mass murder of children who did nothing to warrant a painful and horrible death or dismemberment. We are speaking about having the temerity and the audacity (to use Obama's favorite “big word”) to call this what it is: Islamic terror!
Children died, some as young as eight years old! Is that not enough of a reason to be enraged, to be moved in the cold depths of your soul to finally stand up and point to the Devil in the room and call it what it is: EVIL?
There is only one thing worse than these terrorists who continuously choose cowardice and masks to hide behind while murdering singing and dancing children and that is the politician who is so spineless as to watch the child hanging from the cliff and choosing to not lend a hand!
That's where our political world is and that is what will be sending them all straight to Hell, where they can hobnob with all the Islamic terrorists they want.
