Eagles of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes remembers the Bataclan massacre: “When you tell people they can't help themselves, you weaken them”

Gavin McInnesArchive

Eagles of Death Metal was the band playing at the Bataclan in Paris when it was attacked by Muslim terrorists, who murdered 90 people in the theatre.


I talked to the band's singer and guitarist Jesse Hughes about what happened that night.

He says his upbringing, as an American born in the 1970s -- before play dates and helicopter parents -- helped him react differently to the terror attack than members of his French audience, who he watched "surrender to death."

That’s one really really traumatised man. Watched this… also watched the Vice interview- (Don’t know why Al’s saying he’s full of shit- nothing he says here really contradictory. It’s less emotional but it’s not different.

Peter Toth : This is why in the US or Canada, the death toll never really gets up to 20.

Eventually someone shoots the pricks, or makes them run. This is all the proof positive I need about a free and responsibly armed society.

News flash for you DEBORAH GRAUPNER. Christianity is NOT a death cult, where we sit around praying and waiting to die! If you are too stupid to stand up and fight, then step aside and let it be known when the time comes that you wish to die. But don’t you dare stand in the way of those who will fight for justice and survival!

He is so right. The left has spent decades creating an culture of fear and dependency to such a point that this can happen unchallenged. A mere 100 years ago, those terrorists would have been met with returning gun fire, and the death toll would have been considerably less.

Good video and spot on. How many generations are now essentially timid sheep? So not a single person in that venue had a concealed carry.

P.S. Gavin….great t-shirt. :)

So Deborah, as far as you are concerned we should wave the white flag, submit now and get it over with? Canada will end up like Germany if we let it. It doesn’t have to happen. We have free will and submitting isn’t in my plan.

My comment was for Henry btw and Wayne, Face book edits very thing and anything remotely conservative gets tossed, read an Article on BreitBart by Milos who wants to debate Zuckerman about it great story!

Try and find a book called " Not a shot fired" by a Chech named Jan Kozak, An ex KGB type that spell out how the Communists infiltrated the West with refugees that were trained to be un-elected bureaucrats ( Life time jobs), and how they then undermined our system . They had a long term generational plan in place compared to western thinking which is all about here and now. A great read for everyone that reads The Rebel and of course those that object to The Rebel eyeopener!

Facebook will not let me share this video… No wonder why everyone is so in the dark with what’s actually happening in the world today.

Liza Rosie – according to the Bible, this world will be completely destroyed. I’m not saying they win, because in the end I know that they don’t, but the destruction is coming, at the hands of our own government. As our rights as Canadian citizens are rubbed out, we will look like Germany very soon. They are going to bring in as many of the cult members as they need to, to give them control of our government. Though it looks like they already have their peon in place, with Junior the convert! The final battle will be over there, not here.

Its time to make it widely known to these barbarians that the west won’t take it lying, sitting or kneeling down. Time to pull up our socks, remember who we are where we came from and what those who came before us fought so hard and valiantly to protect. Our freedom and our sovereignty.
Sorry Deborah, with all due respect, I do not believe the destruction of the west is a part of Gods plan. That is what the terrorists think. We have to stop acting like such an easy mark.

The collapse of the western world is part of God’s plan. As painful as it is to watch, we need to keep the faith, and endure all the horrors to come. Jesus said to the effect, that he was persecuted, and those who follow him, would also be persecuted for our belief in him. He also said that those who hold firm and endure for his sake, that they would see God!

I am not a fan of conspiracy theories in general but all of this Political Correctness nonsense is starting to feel as if it was very carefully thought out and planned by some person or group whose ultimate goal is the collapse of Western Civilization. I think they seized on the notion of guilt and decided to use it against us to make us feel guilty for every impulse that could possibly be used to defend our civilization. I mean defense in every sense of the word, including using weapons, but also verbal defenses. If we try to speak up for our own civilization, they tell us how our culture is no better than any others and imply that all cultures are noble and wonderful except ours. If we resist immigration at levels that would discourage assimilation, we are tarred as racists. If we resist having our culture perverted by notions like gay marriage, gender-fluidity and the right of self-proclaimed transsexuals to use the same washrooms and changerooms as children of the opposite gender, we get tarred as homophobes. If we give our children toy guns simply because we had toy guns and enjoyed the sense of adventure that came with that, then we are evil due to their association of guns with murder and war. If we want to come to the defense of Yazidis and Christians being murdered wholesale, we are told it is none of our business and that we are Islamophobic for even wanting to help. And so on and so forth.

One of the results is the kind of scene Jesse Hughes has described so passionately in this video: young people simply surrendering when the real monsters arrive on the scene. The Muslims must love it when we don’t even RESIST their atrocities but simply lie down meekly to die, having realized far too late that our political correctness is simply making us massively vulnerable to the people in the world that are genuinely bad.

I remember having a really unsettled feeling when all this political correctness crap started in earnest in the early 90s. Somehow, I knew that it was the start of something important and negative. I never really imagined that it would go this far before good sense reasserted itself. Now, I’m not even sure there are enough sensible people to change course.

If the Islamic terrorists had tried this in Texas, the outcome would have been completelty different. Texans aren’t sheep.

JJ yeah sure idiot, now go be subjugated like a good sheep.

Flipping nanny state is going to be the death of us. The bulk of young Canadians are so meek and mild they couldn’t duck a punch if they saw it coming. They are like a deer in the headlights just standing there in the line of fire, too frozen with disbelief to get out of the way.
Horrendous events in Paris, it must have been a terrible thing to witness.

JJ and LL, were you there? What the hell are you talking about, the two of you, screw off.
commented 2016-05-12 23:38:29 -0400
Where’s the full interview?. Internet run out of space?

He was on the record that this was a false flag/setup. We are being setup to think that Islam is the real enemy when it is not.

Reminded me of older thriller movies where the victim is so scared they fumble with their keys or stumble and fall. People in the audience are so annoyed shouting in their heads, “Get up, run faster”.

The Guy had a very traumatic experience, it will take time to mend.

None of these snowflakes has ever had to rack a slide on an auto pistol or rifle to protect their lives from a superior force of savages- and fuck if that isn’t the real problem with gun control

LL – you must be looking in a mirror then!
