Morrissey Clarifies Remarks Comparing Norway Massacre to McDonalds and KFC

Morrissey clarified his recent remarks comparing the Norway massacre to the murder of animals for the fast food industry, in a statement to fan site True to You:

Morrissey "The recent killings in Norway were horrific. As usual in such cases, the media give the killer exactly what he wants: worldwide fame. We aren't told the names of the people who were killed - almost as if they are not considered to be important enough, yet the media frenzy to turn the killer into a Jack The Ripper star is .... repulsive. He should be un-named, not photographed, and quietly led away. The comment I made onstage at Warsaw could be further explained this way: Millions of beings are routinely murdered every single day in order to fund profits for McDonalds and KFCruelty, but because these murders are protected by laws, we are asked to feel indifferent about the killings, and to not even dare question them. If you quite rightly feel horrified at the Norway killings, then it surely naturally follows that you feel horror at the murder of ANY innocent being. You cannot ignore animal suffering simply because animals 'are not us.'"

Morrissey: Fast Food Industry More Murderous Than Norway Terrorist

Morrissey and his mouth are causing controversy again. The UK Mirror reports that his remarks about the Norway massacre weren't received very well at a concert over the weekend:

Morrissey The controversial singer, 52, made his remark while on stage at a gig in Warsaw on Sunday night. Before launching into his hit Meat is Murder, the outspoken vegetarian made reference to the horrific events last Friday.

Referring to the death toll as thought at the time he said: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried S*** every day.”

Said the singer's spokesman: “Morrissey has decided not to comment any further as he believes his statement speaks for itself.”

Lesbian Couple Saved Dozens of Campers from Norway Massacre


A lesbian couple were among those who rushed to the aid of young campers in Norway under siege by gunman Anders Behring Breivik last Friday.

A translation via The People's Forum:

Hege Dalen and her partner Toril Hansen were eating supper in the camping area opposite Utoya island when they started hearing gunshots and screaming....

Dalen and Hansen drove their boat to the island, and fished out of the water people who were in shock and young people who were injured and transported them ashore. Every now and then bullets almost hit the boat.

Since they couldn't fit everyone into the boat all at once, they returned to the island four times. They might have saved as much as forty people from the clutches of the killer.

Several others also rushed to the area in boats. In related news, the death toll of the youth camp massacre has been lowered to 68.
