Spillers, U.K. Record Store Bans Morrissey Records Due To His Support For Anne Marie Waters’ Party

We’ve been reporting on an increasing amount of censorship for people who don’t toe the political line of the Regressive Left, also known as Social Justice Warriors, or the Intersectional Inquisition. Anyone who doesn’t fall in line is castigated, cast out, de-platformed, or censored. In this case a U.K., record store in Cardiff, Wales, called Spillers decided to permanently ban stocking Morrissey’s music due to his support of Anne Marie Waters’ new party called For Britain.

The Manchester Evening News picked up the story from over on Wales Online, where they reported that the store owner of Spillers, Ashli Todd, explained…

“I’m saddened but ultimately not surprised that Spillers is unable to stock Morrissey’s releases any longer. I only wished I’d done it sooner.”

So what spurred on this blatant censorship of Morrissey’s records at the store? His appearance on the May 14th, 2019 episode of Jimmy Fallon where he sported a pendant featuring the For Britain party. You can see the clip below.

Now for those of you wondering, Anne Marie Waters’ For Britain is described as the following over on their official website

“The For Britain Movement is a positive, pro-British, pro-democracy party, which believes in preserving the culture and values of the decent British majority, and passing these on to future generations.


“We believe in the democratic mandate of the people, and therefore demand the UK’s complete withdrawal from the European Union without further delay.


“We believe in truth, justice, and freedom. We seek to create a Britain where the rule of law is upheld, and justice prevails over political convenience.


“We will restore freedom of speech as the backbone of the democratic system.


“We sit neither on the Left nor the Right, we are the decent, fair, common sense majority whose voice has been ignored for too long.”

What’s interesting is that nearly every major website out there reporting on Morrissey being banned from Spillers have framed For Britain as “Far Right”, which is ironic given that the site blatantly states that it’s neither “Left nor” on “the Right”. It lets you know how these sites frame and misinform readers purposefully to establish a specific kind of view of certain political groups.

Back in 2018 Morrissey had called out the media for their canards regarding For Britain, telling Tremr

“It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. Finally I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory-Labour constant switching to be pointless.


“For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish ‘racist’ accusation.


“I don’t think the word ‘racist’ has any meaning any more, other than to say ‘you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist.’ People can be utterly, utterly stupid.”

This is basically another case of someone saying something outside of the Left’s media-controlled Overton Window, where even wearing a pendant is enough to get you blacklisted from a record store.

There will be a number of defenders of Spillers who will likely step forward to talk about how the record store is a private company and doesn’t have to stock Morrissey’s music, and a litany of other excuses to justify the censorship. Obviously a lot of these justifications will come from Social Justice Warriors who continue to promote and enforce the suppression of speech and censorship.
