Morrissey Doesn’t Want President Obama to Pardon Any Turkeys This Thanksgiving
What Americans call Thanksgiving, Morrissey not-so-sweetly refers to as “Thankskilling.”
The “Meat is Murder” singer is out there stumping for those poor defenseless turkeys, and this time around his fury is directly aimed at President Obama and the annual White House turkey pardon, which this year is taking on a Hunger Games theme.
In a letter Morrissey posted to the ever-reliable fansite True To You, he expresses his ire with the whole system, repeatedly describing Obama as a maniac who laughs at the thought of taking a poor turkey’s life : And President Obama laughs.
“Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit,” Moz writes.
