In a tell-all interview on the events surrounding the Bataclan theatre attack, Eagles of Death Metal singer Jesse Hughes slammed “insider” Muslim security staff and the politically correct “liberal mentality” as being responsible for the Islamist bloodshed that left 89 concert-goers dead.
He also described the shock of seeing Muslims celebrating in the street “real time” afterwards.
In March, Mr. Hughes suggested some of the venue’s security staff were “in on” the attack, noting that some were acting suspiciously, and that around six security staff did not report for work that night.
Speaking to Taki’s Magazine, Mr. Hughes criticised the media for failing to mention important details about the attack such as that the terrorists were allowed inside the venue early and that some security staff evidently knew and worked with the terrorists.
Asked whether he thought “a percentage of the security staff was Muslim”, the singer answered in the affirmative and said a number of them had been acting in a suspicious manner.
Mr. Hughes noted that he witnessed girls involved in the attacks, who were eventually apprehended by police a few days later. “These women were in traditional Muslim garb,” he said. “They knew people wouldn’t check them because of the way they were dressed.”
Mr. Hughes agreed that political correctness is making the West vulnerable to attack. On the topic of the fear of offending Muslims being “a terrorist’s greatest weapon,” he pointed to how the Brussels bombers aroused suspicion – yet, as a result of social conditioning, no one said anything.
“Look at the guys who bombed Brussels. They were wearing black gloves on one hand. Their luggage was too heavy to lift, but they didn’t want anyone helping them with it. Nobody brought any of this up until after the bombs went off.”
Mr. Hughes credited his survival on his upbringing, where his father taught him about guns. The American rock star said that “everything he was raised to believe” was affirmed the night of the Islamic terror attack.
The Eagles of Death Metal frontman said it made him angry that the Bataclan victims “had no idea what was coming,” lamenting the fact that “there’s a whole group of white kids out there who are stupid and blind” as a result of a lifetime of liberal education.
Responding to his interviewer’s suggestion that people in Europe are not only literally unarmed but also mentally, Mr. Hughes asserted that the attack “didn’t happen by accident.” Alluding to the way “Islamophobia” is held up by the media and establishment as something worse than actual terrorist attacks, he told Taki’s Magazine:
“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.”
