Winston Marshall Says Leftists Attacked Him Like a ‘Swarm Of Snakes’

“Mumford & Sons” lead guitarist Winston Marshall said woke liberal haters came for every aspect of his life after he tweeted his support of Andy Ngo’s anti-Antifa book.

Marshall announced his decision to leave the band in a lengthy essay last week, which he told an interviewer was a “bloody” terrifying ordeal to publish. 

“Particularly the last half an hour before I was very nervous, but I feel like it’s gone,” he said. “I feel like I got my integrity back and I feel like I got my soul back a little bit. Sorry, not a little bit — I feel like I got my soul back, completely. I feel good now.” 

He detailed how the woke mob came after him with a vengeance after he simply congratulated Ngo on his “important” book.  

“I’d been tweeting about books through the pandemic… This one seemed to take off. There’s a couple of ways to what happens,” he began. “So firstly, it starts to take off, and then you have, like a swarm of snakes. They come for every aspect of your life.”

“So for example, for me, they started messing about with my Wikipedia page calling me a Fascist and Nazi and all these ridiculous things, and then, there’s sort of a second wave, where they come for your friends and your associates and their families, and it’s very intimidating.”

The intense backlash he received influenced his choice to leave his music group of fourteen years, because it began affecting his bandmates. “When they start going for your friends and people you love, that’s where it sort of changes.”  

“It’s a very effective mode of intimidation because it’s one thing when they come for you, but when they come for those you love, you want to defend them,” he detailed. “I imagine it’s very confusing for those people, particularly if they don’t know what’s going on, what’s inspired this sort of attack or whatever.”

He also says he regrets his initial apology for the tweet, which he made to protect Mumford & Sons’ image. “You put your friends first. You F***ed up. And I think I did f*** up because now, clearly it’s a … divisive issue, and I think a lot of people (look) at it in low depth, and they don’t understand the far-left extremism that’s going on.”

“They might think, ‘Why would you criticize it?’ or ‘Fascism’s bad, and so Antifa must be good,’ rather than seeing the fascistic behavior of far-Left groups,” WInston concluded.

America used to be a place where one could agree – to disagree. Dialogue exchanges – not threats of, nor direct physical retribution, was the norm. This is exactly how Hitler got his start. Something on which to ponder your thoughts.

I compared the local Nextdoor administrators to Nazis and they banned we for another 2 weeks. They are trying to intimidate conservative Christians at every level so it must be a Communist attack considering they have such low morals and a deviant vision of what the USA should be. Never vote for a Democrat or a RINO.

Since when is it acceptable for people dressed like ninjas all in black from head to toe faces coverd gloves on armed with weapons allowed to roam the streets in groups assaulting anyone who they don’t agree with and spreading terror to everyone. It is surely against the law to perpetuate terrorist acts but yet the law enforcement just looks the other way.

The woke culture doesn’t know the meaning of communism. They are told what to say. Unamerican unmoral and uneducated. Anyone hurts my family will be sorry. Joe Biden and Obama are traitors. Sickening to see our justice system are now gutter rats marching with blm and antifa and the Chinese. If our military had balls they would be arresting these traitors. What I have seen with our top military brass they have lost their honor and their guts to defend the constitution and the American people.

Well I for one respect you for trying to protect your friends and band but hopefully they have the guts to stand up with you. We cannot let these idiots over rule us. This is America and we as patriots have the right to voice our opinion and we aren’t the ones destroying things and hurting our fellow citizens not even them!

I think the woke culture is nothing but a bunch of weak minded keyboard warriors and they are also outnumbered – F them!

They have been given too much leash. Those Brown Shirt dogs of the Democrat party (Antifa, BLM, Southern Poverty Law Center etc.) get reeled back in or we start to eliminate them as they attack us.

The tipping point is almost here when true patriots begin to take out the leftists. When it starts they’ll go after each other. Leftists are the worse when they have supposed enemies once those enemies disappear or start to fight back effectively then leftists go after each other. For example at a recent riot BLM attacked Antifa. Do your own research. Except for Portland recent riots byBLM and Antifa have been smaller as they don’t have money to pay those rioting. Hopefully we see patriots continue to fight back!

We’re being played by Marxists. They rule by bullying. They hit the street pretending to defend liberty when in fact they are viciously attacking innocent people with bricks to their faces while trying to destroy our history and our country. And Kamala Harris said that the riots would continue and “should.” This evil has come upon us. They bully, beat, kill, torture, burn. The moron mayors won’t stop it. It’s a mess and a trajedy. We have to get rid of them. They riot, they have to be arrested. They have to go to jail and stay there for a while. When they realize the party’s over, they will start abandoning their agenda.
