Eagles of Death Metal' Vocalist Jesse Hughes Says Fear of Offending Muslims 'Making Us Vulnerable'

Jesse Hughes – lead vocalist of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal, which was performing at the Bataclan theatre in Paris when terrorists attacked and killed 89 fans and 130 people overall last November – believes the fear of offending Muslims is making the West vulnerable.

And the fear of offending Muslims, he says in an interview with Taki's Magazine, is a by-product of the culture of liberalism and political correctness being propagated by Western countries.

Asked during the interview if he thought political correctness was "killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable" in light of the terrorist attack he experienced, Hughes quickly agreed.

"Definitely. There were two girls who were involved. They were at the venue and vanished before the shooting, and these women were in traditional Muslim garb. They knew people wouldn't check them because of the way they were dressed. They got caught a few days later," he said.

He then described the utter shock experienced by many of the victims who were paralyzed by the attack due to the liberal mentality that created a need to surrender.

"Davey [bassist Dave Catching] was in the middle of the stage and when the lights went on, he saw sh*t he'd never seen before in his life, awful stuff. It has no parallel. It's not just death. It's the most unsuspecting, innocent victims you can imagine — people who are gripped in terror and can't move as a result of it," he said.

"I watched about seven people die. A couple of them were three feet from the barrier. They could have fallen backwards and been alive but they were too scared to even turn around. I remember a woman just standing with her hands up in a surrender pose. The terrorist finally saw her and all she did was go, 'No no no.' She surrendered to death in front of my very eyes. I was yelling at her, 'HEY!' and I don't think she could hear me. She was so terrified, I think she'd already given up," he continued.

"I will lay the blame right in its lap," Hughes said of the "liberal need to surrender."

Paris, France (PHOTO: REUTERS/CHRISTIAN HARTMANN) French fire brigade members aid an injured individual near the Bataclan concert hall following fatal shootings in Paris, France, November 13, 2015. At least 30 people were killed in attacks in Paris and a hostage situation was under way at the concert hall in the French capital, French media reported on Friday.

"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," he said. "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."

Hughes, also known as The Devil or Boots Electric, was ordained by the Universal Life Church World Headquarters on December 6, 2012, according to SB Wire. ULC is a religious denomination without any traditional doctrine despite the name Church in its title, and will ordain anyone as a minister without going through a process. He told Taki's Magazine that he is pro-gun, pro-Trump and pro-life, and sees the spread of Islam as a problem.

"I saw fear fall like a blanket on the whole crowd and they fell like wheat in the wind — the way you would before a god. I was totally alert from the very beginning. The first thing I needed to do was find my girl. Fear took a backseat and 'where's my girl?' took over. I could smell gunpowder in the backstage area and I knew someone fired a round back there. I saw a guy with an FAL and when he turned to face me his eyes looked like marbles. He was stoned out of his mind, and we now know they (terrorists) were on Xanax and cocaine. I recognized him. I'd seen him earlier in the day and noticed him staring at us," recalled Hughes.

Islam, he agreed with the interviewer, is crying wolf about "Islamophobia in order to anesthetize us and make us easier prey."

"They know there's a whole group of white kids out there who are stupid and blind. You have these affluent white kids who have grown up in a liberal curriculum from the time they were in kindergarten, inundated with these lofty notions that are just hot air. Look at where it's getting them," he said.

The name of the band is supposed to be an ironic joke - they don't play the Death Metal genre.

Hughes is a conservative, pro 2nd ammend Conservative Christian. I just read he became an ordained Catholic Reverend in the order of Saint Francis.

I side with any Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Sikh, Hindu, and even atheist enemy of Islam.

The left saying that any offense against islam just creates more terrorists, tells the muslims that terrorism works.

Their meme of appeasement will bring more terrorism.

there’s been a small campaign of sort the past few weeks by leftist journalists in the metal music community to brand Hughes a “Spreader of hate speech” and suggest that he quit speaking out against radical islam, or else risk “losing the goodwill he generated with his experience”

The left press fears a right wing spokesman with his credentials experiencing Islam and not conforming with the leftist BS.

While the jihad is certainly real, I think it’s Soros and his one-worlder ilk who are financing it and enabling it to spread in the West. They must be stopped.

He is right about this, but he is certainly not a guy you want your daughter to date. For starters, he’s a meth addict.

Just fixing opening sentence:
