Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes Calls Parkland, FL Youth Movement For Gun Control “Pathetic And Disgusting”


0

Yesterday (March 26th) saw Eagles Of Death Metal vocalist/guitarist Jesse “The Devil” Hughes publicly share his thoughts on the recent movement in America that has seen teens rallying for gun control in the wake of the Parkland, FL high school shooting.

That youth-led movement has seen various survivors of the shooting and others speak out on behalf of tighter gun control—though detractors often argue that they want to ban guns in general. Most recently, students have been staging large scale marches and mass walkouts from school to raise awareness.

Hughes himself certainly has insight into the issue of gun violence and mass shootings as his band survived one at their concert in Paris, France back in November of 2015. That attack claimed the lives of 89 people after armed gunmen entered the venue during the band’s set and began firing upon the crowd.

Hughes is also no stranger to controversy though, having implied that security at the venue that night were in on the terrorist attacks, before later apologizing.

In a series of mostly since deleted posts (Consequence Of Sound has screen caps of a number of them,) Hughes targeted Parkland, FL shooting survivor Emma González, sharing a photoshopped image of her ripping up the constitution. He captioned that with:

“Behold……the Awful Face Of Treason…..survivor of Nothing….Lover of Treason…..enjoy your little moment…..it’s about to End…… #stupidity #hatersofliberty #loversofsatan #borntolose #2ndamendment.”

He also posted a second amendment espousing patch depicting gun ownership and an illustrated image of a bottle of pills labeled ‘pills that are hard to swallow.’ A second panel in that latter image saw three pills in a hand, each sporting different labels. Those labels read ‘Our guns aren’t going anywhere.’, ‘There are only 2 genders’ and ‘Donald Trump will be your president for 7 more years’.

The one post Hughes did leave up however, reads as follows:

“Obviously….The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law(like the law against Murder) is to……..pass another Law!…..Genius!!!…… but before we pass this law we’re going to denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention….and look how well civil rights abuses as it concerns firearms helped to protect me and my friends in Paris!!!!!

This almost sounds like the plan of like a kid maybe like a high school student….!. Oh wait that’s right…. The Whitney Houston song about letting the children lead the way wasn’t actually had operating paradigm for life…..And when the truth don’t line up with your bullshit narrative just hold your breath and stamp your feet and refused to except it…. then take multiple days off of school playing hooky at the expense of 16 of your classmates blood….!…. it might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting……

As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action…..Long Live Rock’n’Roll….. and may everyone of these disgusting vile abusers of the dead live as long as possible so they can have the maximum amount of time to endure their shame….and be Cursed….”
