I hate when you like an actor’s work or the music of a band and then they go off and fail you by making asinine comments. That’s what happened to me when I heard that Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine recently told a crowd of fans that he believes Barack Obama “staged” the recent shootings (specifically the Aurora, Colorado and Wisconsin Sikh temple shootings), all in an attempt to pass a ban on guns in America.
Apparently the 50-year-old rocker made the comments during a concert in Singapore earlier this month. TMZ reports Mustaine told the crowd, “Back in my country, my president … he’s trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the border … Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there … and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.”
He finished the verbal effery (censoring myself) by saying, “I don’t know where I’m gonna live if America keeps going the way it’s going because it looks like it’s turning into Nazi America.”
This isn’t the first Obama bashing the metalhead has committed. He recently made some Obama “birther” remarks, speaking to Alex Jones in an interview.
I try and be open-minded about things to the best of my ability, but some of these conspiracy theories I’ve heard (not just this but many others, including the 9/11 tragedy) can get pretty wild. This one in particular, makes Mustaine look like a psycho paranoid freak. Yikes.
