There are times in the world when it seems like our culture is caught in a never-ending storm of false umbrage, of people becoming offended on behalf of other people for things they themselves have no problem with. And then there are times when that outrage is completely justified.

The only thing to wonder is: What fast-food franchise does Morrissey think is worse than the Hitler Youth?
