Mumford Loses Its Anti-Antifa Son



Banjo player for Mumford and Sons Winston Marshall has “voluntarily” left the band after endorsing right-wing writer Andy NGO’s recent book “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy”. Marshall tweeted then deleted his enthusiastic endorsement and received online backlash. Marshall has subsequently released a statement acknowledging how he hurt and offended people (apparently including his band mates) and will take time off to “examine [his] blind spots.” The Los Angeles Times called NGO’s book “supremely dishonest” and “ a culmination of Ngo’s single-minded quest to depict an assortment of leftists as a unified vanguard whose mission is to ‘destroy the nation-state‘.”
