Bombings by the Stade de France while France was facing Germany in a soccergame. 4 dead.
Meanwhile, fuckers kill in the center of Paris. Reporters can't say much regarding casualties...
Meanwhile, fuckers burst into the Bataclan, where Eagles of Death Metal were playing, and shoot, kill. 15 dead.
Confusion everywhere. Hostages in the Bataclan? When people were attending a gig? How many more?

Before today, I only knew Bataclan as the venue for some of my favorite live concert albums......reports that the French President has just visited Bataclan.

The Omni Hotel is Dallas is lit up like the French flag tonight.

I've been to the Bataclan five years ago, Low was playing there as support act for Mercury Rev. Here's my recording of Low's set. To be honest I don't recall much anymore about how the venue was like. But it had very good sound. I've more fond memories about the Thurston Moore night a couple days later at La Villette who was headlining for Half Japanese and Glenn Branca.

I'm really shocked about what has happened, and seeing the video of people running out of the back exit of the building. A Dutch guy who was at the concert had been hiding under a pile of dead bodies for some time.

I went at the Bataclan 3 years ago for Shellac. I arrived early to be as close to the stage as possible. It wasn't sold out. I've had time to see the place.

I've been crying sporadically for a while now, knowing what the place looked like doesn't help.

Absolutely horrific. And I dread the consequences this is most likely going to have. There will be more fear-mongering, more baseless accusations and xenophobic slogans by the far right, that's a given. And governments may feel the pressure to lean towards a far more reactionary position. In the wake of 9/11, fear and incertainty reached a point that enabled the Patriot Act, two wars and a slew of measures that radically changed the face of individual freedom. This has the potential to usher in some more absurd and completely irrational actions. And it's already getting abused to rally against the refugees who only seek to flee situations like this one. It's sickening.

In other, or let's say very similar news: Bombings in Bourj el-Barajneh, a suburb of Beirut leave between 37-43 dead.

I agree with you that we must be ever vigilant in protecting our civil liberties against the constant attempts at encroachment by the State, and we must staunchly resist any effort by the State to use crises of their own creation to create a security establishment which they will eventually turn against all of us. So we have the choice of surrendering our civil liberties to protect us from a foreign threat in our midst, or allow our countries to be overrun and taken over by people to whom the very concept of Western values, including civil liberty, constitute disgusting decadence. This is a false choice forced upon us by those in power over us. In a sane world, the state's primary function would be seen as protecting the country's borders to allow the society within to flourish in freedom. Instead, we have our armies scattered all over the world fighting Moslems in their own homelands while our own borders are opened to an uncontrolled refugee flood which provide the perfect infiltration vector for those who would violently oppose the fundamental values of Western civilization, even as our political establishments who created the whole mess brand any who oppose this influx as anti-civil libertarian, themselves deserving of persecution or prosecution.

In a sane world, there would have been no Western-incited war in Syria to cause the refugee crisis which floods the West with refugees. This is a false crisis which our rulers use to present us with false choices.

Massive terrorist attacks upon Western cities and institutions are not cause for the State to demand surrender of our civil liberties that they might protect us from an internal/external threat of their own creation; rather, they are cause for the citizenry to accuse the State of having betrayed the nation.
