Morrissey performs on Day 2 of the 2015 Firefly Music Festival at The Woodlands on June 19, 2015, in Dover, Delaware.

Earlier this week, Thom Yorke compared YouTube practices to Nazi war plundering. In the latest bit of paranoid rock dudes comparing apples to oranges, Morrissey has gone ahead and likened the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the San Francisco International Airport to ISIS.

Morrissey made the comparison on the fansite True To You yesterday (Dec. 1). Back in July 2015, Morrissey alleged he was groped by the San Francisco TSA. and that he lodged an official complaint. In the new statement, he said this complaint had been ignored.

“From this we gather that TSA stands for Thorough Sexual Assault,” Morrissey wrote. “If you are traveling through San Francisco International Airport, you must be ready for a full sexual attack by people who claim to have your interests at heart. It is unlikely that Isis would stoop so low.”

Morrissey Claims Universal Is Blocking His Paris Tribute Single; Universal Denies It

This comparison comes less than a month after ISIS stooped to killing 130 people in the Paris attacks. 

And if we really are keeping score on this strange continuum, Morrissey claims his penis and testicles were “groped”; ISIS does much worse to its own recruits.
