Gavin McInnes has done something quite extraordinary and it turns out that having done what he’s done, the result is even more extraordinary than you might ever have imagined it would be. He has gone and interviewed Jesse Hughes, lead singer of Eagles of Death Metal, the group playing at the Bataclan in Paris on the night it was stormed by Islamists and where almost 100 members of the audience were killed. The piece is titled Surrendering to Death where his point is that we are unprepared for what is being inflicted on us and are doing nothing to toughen up. I begin towards the start of the interview but there is much more there:
Do you think political correctness is killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable?
Definitely. There were two girls who were involved. They were at the venue and vanished before the shooting, and these women were in traditional Muslim garb. They knew people wouldn’t check them because of the way they were dressed. They got caught a few days later.
The fear of offending Muslims is a terrorist’s greatest weapon.
“When the cops went in after the attack, they shut down, what, 450 mosques? They found recruitment material in every single one of them.”
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.
We’d rather die than be called a bigot.
How is a faith being associated with racism? Just take out the word “Islam” and replace it with “communism.” It’s an ideology. The same way the Rosenbergs could sell nuclear secrets from within America is the same way Muslim terrorists can attack us from within. It’s okay to be discerning when it comes to Muslims in this day and age.
Where is this push coming from? Is it all our fault?
Of course not. When you’re at a soccer game in Europe and you see the words “United Arab Emirates,” you know there is a lot of Arab money floating around and influencing the dialogue. The conversation is constantly being steered away from scrutiny. They think we’re fools. . . .
Political correctness kills.
Davey [bassist Dave Catching] was in the middle of the stage and when the lights went on, he saw shit he’d never seen before in his life, awful stuff. It has no parallel. It’s not just death. It’s the most unsuspecting, innocent victims you can imagine—people who are gripped in terror and can’t move as a result of it.
It’s like a metaphor for all of Western civilization.
I watched about seven people die. A couple of them were three feet from the barrier. They could have fallen backwards and been alive but they were too scared to even turn around. I remember a woman just standing with her hands up in a surrender pose. The terrorist finally saw her and all she did was go, “No no no.” She surrendered to death in front of my very eyes. I was yelling at her, “HEY!” and I don’t think she could hear me. She was so terrified, I think she’d already given up.
It’s not long but whether it is or not, it is filled with a kind of detail about the modern non-defence of the West that should be thought about. They are out to kill us and take our countries from us – including your very own country, the one you are living in right now. They want to take your country and make it their country. That’s exactly what they want and this is the kind of article that reminds you why they may well end up doing what they have set out to do.
