This Guy is an Asshole: Blames the Victims for Going to the Eagles of Death Metal Concert in Paris

Less than 36 hours after the massacre at the Bataclan theatre in Paris–we still didn’t know how many dozens of people had been killed by a bunch of religiously motivated psychopaths–this asshole, Steven Anderson of the Faithful World Baptist Church, basically told his flock that the people who died got what they deserved.

I quote:

“When you go to a concert of death metal, somebody might get killed! You know, you’re worshiping death! And then, all of a sudden, people start dying!… Well, you love death so much, you bought the ticket, you love worshiping Satan! Well, let’s have some of Satan’s religion come in and shoot you!

I mean, that’s what these people should think about before they go into such a wicked concert. And look I’m not condoning what these Islamic murderers did, they’re wicked, they’re murders.

But you know what, nobody should be at a concert worshiping Satan with this drug pushing hillbilly faggot. And that’s what he is. I mean all you have to do is just Google this band. Somebody told me, somebody emailed me and told me ‘just hit Google Images, Eagles Of Death Metal‘ and these guys are just total sodomite looking freaks. You know, but nobody thinks about that. It’s just ‘oh no, let’s stand with France.’”

Wow. What an asshole. I don’t even know where to start. He obviously doesn’t know a thing of EODM, but that didn’t stop him from spouting his hateful assholery. But judging from the reaction of the congregation, they agree with him. Here’s the video as proof this actually happened.

  • Unfortunately a big part of the problem here is that this guy is getting exactly the media attention he craves.
