EODM’s Jesse Hughes calls March for Our Lives “vile abusers of the dead”
Ever since the 2015 terrorist attack on Paris that left 89 dead at Eagles of Death Metal's show at Bataclan, frontman Jesse Hughes has repeatedly spoken out against gun control, though he has sometimes apologized for his comments. His latest rant came one day after record crowds turned out around the country in support of gun law reform for March for Our Lives. "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," he wrote as part of a Instagram post.
The Guardian reports that Hughes originally had three other Instagram posts that he was since deleted, including one with a photoshopped picture of student protester Emma González ripping a copy of the US Constitution in half with comments that read "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." Another had multiple images, which The Guardian describes:
...an illustration of a bottle of pills labelled “Hard to Swallow”, followed by an image of a hand holding three pills, each bearing a caption: “Our guns aren’t going anywhere”; “There are only 2 genders”; and “Donald Trump will be your president for 7 more years”. In Hughes’s caption, he promised “moronic dingdong headed losers” that he would report any threats made against him to the FBI.
Hughes also put up another Instagram saying that he was going to create a separate account for his political thoughts and leave his fatherbadass account "for Rock’n’Roll" from now on. You can read Hughes comments on the still-up Instagram, below:
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....
