Morrissey, former lead singer of the Smiths, posted a letter to a fan site completely talking shiz on the Oympics!
He's really unhappy at how London is at the moment and can't even watch the games on TV.
"Has England ever been quite so foul with patriotism? The 'dazzling royals have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs, and no oppositional voice is allowed in the free press. It is lethal to witness. As London is suddenly promoted as a super-wealth brand, the England outside London shivers beneath cutbacks, tight circumstances and economic disasters. Meanwhile the British media present 24-hour coverage of the 'dazzling royals,' laughing as they lavishly spend, as if such coverage is certain to make British society feel fully whole. In 2012, the British public is evidently assumed to be undersized pigmies, scarcely able to formulate thought."
He certainly seems upset at the UK's coverage of the games.
He continues his rant, getting more and more crazy as he goes on.
"As I recently drove through Greece I noticed repeated graffiti seemingly everywhere on every available wall. In large blue letters it said WAKE UP WAKE UP. It could almost have been written with the British public in mind, because although the spirit of 1939 Germany now pervades throughout media-brand Britain, the 2013 grotesque inevitability of Lord and Lady Beckham (with Sir Jamie Horrible close at heel) is, believe me, a fate worse than life. WAKE UP WAKE UP."
Wow. He just compared the games to Nazi Germany. Just wow.
We can understand being upset at the whole corporate and media controlled aspect of the games, but does he fail to see the coming together of countries?
How, even though many of us are at war, we can still put our differences aside and compete on an even playing field?
Hopefully he just needed to get that off his chest and he'll be done before the secret media police toss a black hood on his head and he disappears forever. LOLz!
