Jesse Hughes of the group Eagles of Death Metal says that concert security was complicit and liberalism rendered the victims defenseless.
According to the front man for Eagles of Death Metal, the fact that many were mysteriously absent, and other things, indicate that security was complicit in the attacks. Jesse Hughes was performing with his bandmates in Paris at the Bataclan theater on the evening of November 15.
He was recently interviewed in Taki’s Magazine. The interview includes the following:
I know they were. Look, security guards backstage are notorious for being dicks. They check your ID every few minutes and nobody goes back and forth without being checked, even if you’re in the band. This guy didn’t care what we did. He didn’t even look at me.
The only time he seemed remotely interested in us was when he said to my girlfriend, “Do you speak French?” and “Where are you from?” She said she was from Texas and he was getting frustrated because that’s not what he meant. Then she said, “I’m American” and he lost interest. I honestly think he was trying to determine if she was Arab or not. She’s Mexican and she could easily pass for Lebanese and I think he was going to warn her if she was Muslim.
But even more alarming are many of the things Hughes says about how easy it was for the attackers to kill their victims.
Is it fair to say the liberal mentality created this need to surrender?
I will lay the blame right in its lap. When you tell people they can’t help themselves and that they’re children, you weaken them to a point where three feet away is life and they can’t see it because they’re too scared.
In a way we’re unarmed twofold. We’re literally unarmed and we’re also mentally unarmed.
It’s like the bleating sheep from Animal Farm. You suggest anything that strays from the narrative and this chorus of bleats comes to drown you out. This attack didn’t happen by accident.
The attacks resulted in 89 fans being murdered and 130 overall being killed that night. Hughes said that he witnessed Muslims celebrating in the street. Later, at a stadium event, “Muslims booed the moment of silence and we barely heard about it in the press.”
