Morrissey has issued a scathing attack at the mainstream media, accusing them of covering up an obvious Marine Le Pen victory.
Morrissey issued a statement about this week’s presidential election debate in France, saying that Marine Le Pen not only “easily won” the contest against Rothschild candidate Emmanuel Macron – but put herself on the road to victory.
According to The Smiths frontman, mainstream news outlets cannot be trusted to tell the truth, and will do everything they possibly can to try and ensure Le Pen loses the election this weekend, despite her soaring popularity.
Posting a statement via his keyboardist Gustavo Manzur’s Facebook page, Morrissey wrote:
“Last night Marine Le Pen easily won the French Election debate. Today both the BBC and CNN say Macron won the debate. This is precisely the reason why mainstream news media outlets cannot be trusted to tell the truth. Their private agendas are more important than facts, reality, or their duty to the people.”
I understand this is a sensitive topic but keep opinions, opinions and not offenses. It is my personal FB so debate is…
Last year, the outspoken singer declared that Brexit was a “magnificent” result for ordinary British citizens, and a huge “slap in the face” for the New World Order.
“As for Brexit, the result was magnificent, but it is not accepted by the BBC or Sky News because they object to a public that cannot be hypnotised by BBC or Sky nonsense.
These news teams are exactly the same as Fox and CNN in that they all depend on public stupidity in order to create their own myth of reality. Watch them at your peril!“
Manzur did not immediately respond to Pitchfork’s request for comment.
In June 2016, Morrissey criticized both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. He wrote at the time, “a sad day looms in November—a day that only Bernie Sanders could have saved.” Later, in October, he spoke about Brexit.
“As for Brexit, the result was magnificent, but it is not accepted by the BBC or Sky News because they object to a public that cannot be hypnotised by BBC or Sky nonsense,” he said.
