Mumford & Sons Banjo Player SELF CANCELS & Apologizes For DARING To Criticize Antifa

TheQuartering [3/10/2021]

We have people thought-policing themselves now.

According to NBC News:

Winston Marshall, the banjo player for British folk-rock band Mumford & Sons, is “taking time away” from the group following social media backlash regarding a tweet in which he praised right-wing writer Andy Ngo.

In the since-deleted tweet posted over the weekend, Marshall — who is British — congratulated Ngo on publishing his most recent book, “Unmasked,” which looks at “Antifa’s radical plan to destroy democracy.” “Finally had the time to read your important book. You’re a brave man,” Marshall wrote.

In a statement posted to his Twitter account Tuesday night, Marshall apologized for the tweet and announced that he will be taking a leave of absence from the band “to examine my blindspots.”
