Mumford & Sons Guitarist Who Enjoyed Conservative Book is Gone for Good

In March, Mumford & Sons temporarily kicked its guitarist, Winston Marshall, out of the band for admitting that he enjoyed a book written by conservative Andy Ngo. However, Marshall announced Thursday that his departure is permanent, not temporary.

"As you might imagine, it's been no easy decision," Marshall wrote.

Ngo's Unmasked: Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy is the book in question. I may have not read Ngo's book, but I still know Marshall is correct: Antifa is a radical group trying to destroy democracy. Hell, they may even admit it.

But because Mumford & Sons is a part of the entertainment industry -- where only followers survive -- Marshall is not allowed to question a protected group like Antifa.

Here is the comment that Mumford & Sons deemed so dangerous that they temporarily fired Marshall:

"Finally had the time to read your important book. You're a brave man."

Damn him!

According to PageSix, Mumford & Sons viewed that comment as the "final straw."

Ahh, there it is. The report says that Marshall's "staunchly right-wing political views have been causing tension for some time now within the band."

Translation: if they find out you don't lean left -- very left -- you will not be tolerated. Just ask Gina Carano.

"n distancing myself from them I am able to speak my mind without them suffering the consequences," Marshall goes on. "I leave with love in my heart and I wish those three boys nothing but the best. I have no doubt that their stars will shine long into the future. I will continue my work with Hong Kong Link Up and I look forward to new creative projects as well as speaking and writing on a variety of issues, challenging as they may be."

Fair. Why should Mumford & Sons suffer the consequences just because one of their own dared to challenge the common narrative? Good thing those "three boys" are now safe.
