British rocker Morrisey, former front man for the indie rock band The Smiths, lashed out at politicians and the Queen after the Manchester terror attack, blaming them for an unwillingness to specify Islamic extremism when they see it.
Morrisey, born in Manchester, complained that politicians are able to isolate themselves while the public bears the brunt of their terrorism and open border policies.
Via the Daily Caller:
British indie rock legend Morrissey tore into the leaders of his country Tuesday for their apparent hypocrisy and inaction in the wake of the deadly Manchester terror attack.
In a post published to his official Facebook page, Morrissey — whose full name is Steven Patrick Morrissey — expressed his “monumental” anger at British leaders who talk tough, but do nothing to stop future terror attacks.
“For what reason will this ever stop?” the former Smiths frontman said after noting the attack, which struck an Ariana Grande concert and left 22 dead, occurred while he was celebrating his birthday.

He blasted Prime Minister Theresa May, saying “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.”
Of May’s comments that the attack that killed 22 people – with one victim as young as 8-years-old – ‘will not break us,’ Morrisey claimed it actually meant “that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration.”
“The young people of Manchester are already broken,” he added. “Thanks all the same, Theresa.”
Morrissey is the only ‘celebrity’ with the balls to tell the truth.

He went on to slam “political correctness” in the face of Islamic extremism.
“In modern Britain everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private,” the singer wrote.
“Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an ‘extremist’. An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?”
Morrisey has often expressed opinions on immigration that put him at odds with the left. In a 2007 interview with Independent, he blamed immigration for the ‘disappearance’ of British identity.
“You can’t say, ‘Everybody come into my house, sit on the bed, have what you like, do what you like.’ It wouldn’t work.”
The Manchester suicide bomber was reportedly a child of Libyan refugees and was thought to have traveled there as recently as a week ago.
The number of ‘likes’ for Morrisey’s post was fast approaching 50,000 at the time of publication.
