Popular Indie Rock Band ‘Mumford and Sons’ Cancels Banjo Player for Supporting Anti-Antifa Book

The Banjo player for the popular indie rock band ‘Mumford and Sons’ has now been forced to step away from his job after supporting a book by conservative activist Andy Ngo documenting the dangers of Antifa.

The banjoist,  Winston Marshall, late released a statement saying that he would be taking time away from the band to examine his ‘blindspots.’

As The New York Post reports:

English folk-pop band Mumford & Sons have reportedly booted banjoist Winston Marshall — for praising a book that condemns the destructive rise of Antifa…

The 33-year-old Londoner on Sunday tweeted Ngo about his book, “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.”

“Finally had the time to read your important book. You’re a brave man,” Marshall wrote — a tweet that has since been deleted along with the rest of his Twitter messages, save Monday night’s apology statement.

His mea culpa came after bandmates Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane kicked him out of the band following a crisis meeting about the barrage of outrage online, the Sun said.

Never knew banjoist did not have any balls. Shame that one can no longer have any opinion other than Marxist and still make a living.
So where does this road end? 80-90% of the country is out of work???

Conservatives are too busy taking the ‘high road’. Meanwhile, while they’re all on this ‘high road’ their freedoms are being stripped away. Very sad.

Already Are! If I acted like kids do today, my father would beat your ass until you couldn’t sit down for a week. Today, that would be child abuse. Most of these spoiled brats need a good ass kicking and a job supporting themselves. That would keep them out of trouble and value what they get.
I had paper routes, mowed lawns, worked on parents rent property for free, Bagging groceries to pay for my car, gas and school clothes. NO ALLOWANCE any time. Worked as many as three jobs at a time.

Now you can’t even get the little bastards off the phone long enough to talk to you at a parts store. I’d like to drag them over the counter and stomp their stupid ass into the ground. Stupid, Don’t want to learn anything, No manners, look like freaks, Want top pay when they have no skills and can’t tie their shoes.
Women are worse, dyed freak hair colors, tats, 30-40’s acting like 15 year old sluts, screwing everything in sight until they want to settle and have you support them. WE are deep Trouble. The “Free Stuff” generation are killing us. They produce nothing but BS. and demand everything. I think that’s why they think a Commie country would be nice, but they are too stupid to read a history book to see how that worked out many times.

I have black friends that are essentially telling me that even they are surprised by how “crazy” the young white wokesters are AND how much they are getting away with.

I told them that’s because “whitey won’t fight back.”

They all agreed with that one!!!!

To a point, White people have been made the bad guys so long that they afraid they might insult someone or color. I think that if it gets bad enough people will get fed up and the fight will be on. Personally, I go out of my way to not mess with people. If I accidently insult someone I will apologize. But that’s it. I’m not taking a guilt trip, not kissing their ass. If they think they are going assault me because I “dissed” them, I walk away if they refuse to drop it. They may not survive it to try it again. I’m too old to run and don’t give a crap anymore.

Or they somehow land a commercial gig (w/o banjo man) with mixed couples that I’m forced to see because I can’t change the channel fast enough !

And now Winston Marshall cannot stop apologizing enough.
Too bad Winston couldn’t overcome his “whiteness” and tell his band mates to shove it up their woke azzes.
But, hey, he knows that there isn’t a big demand for banjo players and an unemployed banjo player typically remains an unemployed banjo player.
Winston should learn this quote from another Winston:
“Some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.”

The lack of self confidence reigns high with this ignorant man. Count your blessings to not be a part of something that supports crime, violence, hate & the taking away the rights of another to think they way they like to think.

Don’t be afraid!! Take your BANJO & do your own thing, by yourself. You can make it on your own. Stand on the street corner in a conservative part of any town & you will make millions. Let this story be heard far & wide of what they did to you. You will get rich, QUICK.
Never sell out your soul to evil. There is NO blessing attached to anything like this.

Be brave & daring & you will be shocked at those who hold you in high standing & will support you financially & emotionally…….

Becoming a person of reason & opinions has become a criminal offense. God help us all.I guess the whole idea is to take away the right to speak, earn a living and exist. Get a grip people. Soon we will be what they want. People with no backbone and afraid to speak for fear it will destroy our families and everything else we hold dear.

I understand why he apologized… He was hoping not to lose his job.

This was not a stand for religious freedom, but it could have been a stand for freedom in other ways. His freedom as an artist… I mean, don’t the rest of them want the freedom to express themselves however they see fit? That is part of being an artist – whatever media.

I would love to see all of the cancel culture absolutely start back-firing on people as soon as they cancel someone or something else.

Sorry to say, it will get worse.

As the blacks used to say when I was responding to fight and disturbance calls back in the ‘70’s & 80’s (yes, thank God I’m retired) , “Whitey won’t fight.”

It seems to me a “popular” rock band should be a band I’ve at least heard of.
