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.

“[I]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.

  1. You need to read the book, Bobby. It is awesome! One of the things that grabbed my attention at the outset of the book when Andy Ngo is talking about antifa tactics (and this was before Jan. 6) is that they smash windows, which I guess psychologically drives fervor and the heart rate to act out. There were some goons doing just that on Jan. 6 who sure weren’t dressed as Trump supporters. Anyhow, it is a great read and Andy indeed is a brave man.
