Eagles of Death Metal’s frontman, Jesse Hughes, slammed David Hogg and the rest of the “March For Our Lives” leaders for politicizing the deaths of fellow Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students. Calling these organizers “disgusting vile abusers of the dead”, Hughs penned a lengthy Instagram post railing against the students: “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.”
Hugh’s Instagram post poked at the tactic of these teenage activists attempting to pass more laws, despite them having shown time and time again they have little knowledge outside their experiences at Parkland:
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….!
Hughs called the protests an “insult” to the “memory of those who were killed and abused” and an insult to “every lover of liberty”:
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….
Update: Jesse Hughes has deleted his Instagram posts about the anti-gun protesters, we’ve included a screenshot of the statement and image it was attached to below.
