Winston Marshall, former guitarist for popular rock band Mumford & Sons, watched his career totally go up in flames after he made a post on Twitter in support of controversial right-leaning journalist Andy Ngo’s book, “Unmasked” which is geared toward exposing the dark truth about radical leftist group Antifa.
However, in the wake of watching his career crash and burn in the blink of an eye, Marshall became a champion for free speech and has remained firm in his stance despite all of the hateful smears he has received ever since.
According to a report from Fox News, Marshall recently appeared on “Fox News Saturday Night,” hosted by Kat Timpf, who he went on to tell all about how people in similar situations can defeat censorship, and it’s a piece of advice that can be summed up in three words. He said, “Stand your ground” and fight for the truth.
“It was quite a painful experience [being canceled]. My world sort of blew up over the course of a couple of days and my life seemed to fall apart,” he said during the interview.
However, in the thick of the situation, Marshall determined that he would not go down without a fight. He walked away from one of the most popular and successful rock bands in the world and eventually, with time, took back control of his life. The whole process began when he decided to start a podcast that would discuss the controversial topics of the day.
“I’m happy to say I have rebuilt it [my life] now and am doing exciting things, including my podcast ‘Marshall Matters’…” he told Timpf.
Marshall brought up an excellent point when he recalled the music censorship movement that started way back in the 1980s, spearheaded by Second Lady Tipper Gore, a Democrat, noting that the point of origin of it all was evangelicals, but is currently coming from the radical left.
“We’ve turned now where the censoriousness comes from the progressives,” he remarked. “The only real way to deal with it is to not be scared, to not apologize when you’ve done nothing wrong, to not be scared of the mob and to stand your ground, stand by your convictions.”
The guitarist then revealed he gets messages from folks across many different industries, telling him all about how scared they are to speak up about things happening in the world today, due to fear of being fired from their jobs, which is a fear he understands better than most.
“They have too much to lose,” he added. “Everybody wants to be a rock star, a musician and very few people get to do it, so I can understand why people want to protect that.”
