Taki Mag interviews Eagles of Death Metal vocalist Jesse Hughes
Q: It’s like a metaphor for all of Western civilization.
A: 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.
Q: Is it fair to say the liberal mentality created this need to surrender?
A: I will lay the blame right in its lap. When you tell people they can’t help themselves and that they’re children, you weaken them to a point where three feet away is life and they can’t see it because they’re too scared.

The band has had two gigs cancelled in France due to these and other statements. This goes hand-in-hand with the Silencings of women who came under coordinated attacks throughout Europe at public New Year's gatherings. First they were assaulted by Middle Easterners, then silenced by their own governments, police and media.
Even Mid-East lobbyist David Petraeus sounds like a CAIR press release these days. Why David Petraeus Really Wants You To Shut Up About Islamism
Pres. Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt: "We as Muslims, We have to be honest. Islam has talked about trustiness, Are we known as truthful? Islam has talked about perfecting the work, are we known with that? Islam talked about tolerance, are we known as tolerants?"
"The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of extreme ideology. They are the godfather of all terrorist organizations. They spread it all over the world." ..........
WOLF BLITZER, CNN: In President Obama's State of the Union address, he said that the fight against ISIS should not be labeled another World War III because that, he said, plays into the hands of ISIS propaganda. You called this war against ISIS almost like a World War III. Do you, do you see this war against ISIS now as World War III?
ABDULLAH, II, KING OF JORDAN: Well, I've said that the war against the outlaws of Islam is a third world war by other means, which is probably slightly different. How I've explained it, it's not just is. All these groups, from Philippines or Indonesia, all the way to Mali, these are all the same, whether it's is, Boko Haram, al Shabaab, al Nusra, wherever you find them around the world. Again, as I said, from Asia all the way to the African continent, there is either a full-out war or counterinsurgency warfare. This is a global struggle that brings, as I said many times, Muslims, Christians, Jews, other religions, fighting alongside us, as we fight our civil war in Islam.
By refusing to use the phrase "Radical Islamic Terrorists" or even the King's "Outlaws of Islam", Obama is refusing to acknowledge that Civil War. When people did that during our own Civil War, it helped the Slave Power and hurt the reformers, just as Obama is doing today. It's a damned odd state of affairs when the leaders of Egypt and Jordan make much more sense than our own "leaders".
Denis Boyles on France, from a dozen years ago:
"...almost 100 percent of them practice birth control and "family planning," a euphemism for having a family that includes more cars than kids. Natural law, the richly ornamented expression of which is orthodox religious practice and belief, is easy to disregard. But you break the law, you pay the price. And in the case of France — and Germany...the price of being fruitless and not multiplying is a smaller state-welfare apparatus and a working life that takes you right up to the edge of the grave, then pushes you in. For those who need to believe the state can always do what God can't, that's called dying for your faith. ... The growing smallness of France — diplomatically, economically, culturally — is a remarkable thing. One day, I fear I'll go to bash the French and find myself making faces at an Islamic Euro-state."..............................................
The Mystic Chords of Memory: The Triumphant Return of the Marquis de Lafayette, the last surviving general of the Revolutionary War, to America nearly a half century after the Declaration:
"When asked, by George Washington Parke Custis, for his reaction to the untimely death of Hamilton at the hands of Burr, Lafayette replied. "Hamilton was to me, my dear Sir, more than friend, he was a brother. We were both very young, when associated with our common father; our friendship, formed in days of peril and glory, suffered no diminution from time: with Tilghman and with Laurens, I was upon terms the most affectionate; but with Hamilton, my relations were brotherly."
From New York, Lafayette went on to Philadelphia, stopping by those scenes of old battles at Trenton and Princeton on his way there, with the usual flurry of toasts and celebrations.
At this time, Philadelphia was still the most sophisticated metropolis in the country. The reception there was grand, and the procession reached about four miles, taking one hour and ten minutes to enter the city. Included in the procession were 150 Revolutionary War veterans, organized by the Society of Cincinnati, drawn in three great cars, each pulled by four horses, each trimmed with red and white bunting. On one side of the car was written "Defenders of Our Country," and on the other "The Survivors of 1776." In the front of the cavalcade was written "Washington," and at the rear "Lafayette." ...
In reply to remarks from the mayor of Philadelphia, Lafayette said: "Here, sir, within these sacred walls, by a council of wise and devoted patriots, and in a style worthy of the deed itself, was boldly declared the independence of these vast United States, which, while it anticipated the independence, and, I hope, the republican independence, of the whole American hemisphere, has begun, for the civilized world, the era of a new, and of the only social order, founded on the unalienable rights of man, the practicability and advantages of which are every day admirably demonstrated by the happiness and prosperity of your populous city.""........................
There should always be a France. Vive le France!
