Righteous polemic alert!

Morrissey has posted a new message slamming President Obama's decision to issue a 'turkey pardon'.

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest national holidays in the United States. It's a time to be with friends and family, and also a time when Americans traditional gorge on turkey.

Millions of turkeys will be devoured this Thanksgiving, and in recognition of this President Obama issued a tongue-in-cheek 'turkey pardon'.

However Morrissey wasn't impressed. Writing - as ever - on True To You the singer posted a message titled 'Thanksgiving' - see what he did there?

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. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny!

As Ingrid Newkirk from PETA points out, turkey 'meat' is one of "our nation's top killers", causing heart-attacks and strokes in humans due to saturated animal fats and cholesterol. And President Obama laughs.

Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51% of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry.
And President Obama laughs.
