Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes deletes posts about “pathetic and disgusting” anti-gun protests

Eagles of Death Metal’s Bataclan survivor Jesse Hughes calls gun control protest ‘pathetic’

Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes has lashed out at a series of protests taking place across the US in a bid to enforce stricter gun control.

The protests, entitled ‘March for Our Lives’, has seen hundreds of thousands American students take to the streets to protest gun violence. Hughes posted five different right wing memes on his Instagram account and then proceeded to delete three of them following a backlash. In one post, Hughes compares people returning guns to control points the same as men dismembering themselves to end rape.

Emma González, a survivor of February’s Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, has been a leading activist and spoke during the protest. In a delete post on Hughes’ Instagram, the Eagles of Death Metal shows a photoshopped image of the young woman tearing up the a copy of the US Constitution in half.

In one of posts that Hughes did not delete, it displays illustrations of a woman saying: “I turned in my gun to do my part in ending violence,” to which a man replies, “I chopped off my own dick to stop rape.”

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….
