Spineless Tap… Eagles Of Death Metal documentary pulled from film festival following Paris attack

  • Lemme see if I can get this straight. A shitty metal band (of which there are a dime a dozen) gets pulled from a film festival because they were the targets of an Islamist terror attack.

    If they got pulled because they are a shitty metal band, then I would be in agreement — tattoos, and flashing lights, and long hair, and fantasy bullshit, and words like “death” in your name, do not good musicians make.

    But they got pulled because they were victims of an Islamist terror attack! Hence, I’ve decided to become a fan of Eagles of Death Metal forever. Not because they are good musicians, but because they are being persecuted simply for being persecuted.

    Sorta reminds me of the Islamist rationalization behind stoning their women to death: “You are being stoned to death because you were the victims of rape”. The organizers of the festival have obviously adopted that ideology — personally I hope it inspires ISIS to blow them up for their “infidel” misappropriation of Islam. I hope the festival organizers experience the real “eagles of death”, since they have obviously rejected the innocuous fantasy version in favour of cowardly submission to Islamic violence.

    • I think the real blame lies with the Amsterdam organizers.

      They are not a “shitty metal band” btw.

      Even if they are a shitty band they have for years been vical against the BDSM activities against Isreal and have said the problems in Israel are because of Islam not the jewish people.

      It’s likely those frequent comments are why they were targetted.

    Love it! Was that on their “smell the glove” tour?

    UK cinemas refuse to screen ad, because the Lord’s Prayer features.

    When are you going to put the santa hat and Christmas decorations on the Blazing Cat Fur masthead? On second thought, maybe you shouldn’t. We should all tone down Christmas so the muslim refugees feel welcome and are not offended. Praise Allah! And I see in the news that business is booming for fake letters, that state the Taliban is threatening refugees so as to make it easier for them to come here. But I’m sure our screening process will catch it.

      Perhaps this year BCF mighty consider dropping in a background of Jerusalem behind Pip in solidarity with the Jewish state. And Pip gets a Santa hat of course. Kind of a “Pip in the Holy Land Christmas Special” thing.

      In a word, WOW! Just WOW.

      Thank you for that.

      Excellent link. Imagine, the Israelis trained the French police. If only we were smart enough to do that.
