Quote# 89119

Dave Mustaine -- the lead singer of Megadeth -- believes Barack Obama "staged" the massacre in Aurora, CO in a sick, twisted plot to pass a gun ban.

Mustaine made the comments on stage at an August 7 performance in Singapore ... when he 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 continued, "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."

Obviously, Mustaine is not an Obama fan ... and recently bashed the President during an interview with Alex Jones ... saying, "With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake. And you see the signs in Kenya that say 'the birthplace of Barack Obama.' Hello?! C'mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?"

I like Megadeth, or at least used to, I don't listen to a lot of thrash or speed metal these days. But Dave Mustaine should probobly just stick to making music instead of trolling in a mistaken effort to stay relevant.

Wingnuts seem to assume that Obama is in favour of gun control just because he's a Democrat. To the best of my knowledge, he has never actually made any overtures towards making guns more difficult to obtain.

That's the birthplace of Barack Obama, *Senior*, you witless fuck.

Remarks as stupid as that, you'd think he was a drummer.

Dave? Shut up.

(I say this as a megadeth fan...)

How stupid are we right now?

Are you sure you really want me to answer that?

Alex Jones never met a conspiracy theory he didn't like.

Oh, shut up and go back to crying about getting kicked out of Metallica.

*sigh* And I like his music too.

I'm sure Singaporeans were really sympathetic about his gun ban whining.

"Citizens in Singapore must obtain a license to lawfully possess firearms and/or ammunition; applicants must provide justification for the license, such as target shooting or self-defense. Target shooting licenses permit ownership of a gun, stored in an approved and protected firing range. Self-defense permits are nearly never granted, unless one can justify the 'imminent threat to life that cannot be reasonably removed'. Citizens are not allowed to possess pistols over .32 caliber, or automatic weapons"

Anyone who agrees with Alex Jones on anything has automatically forfeited their right to have their opinion taken into account on anything ever again.

I'm glad I never listened to Megadeth before, because this would make it hard to do so afterwards.

If I remember correctly even if you were born in another country if you were brought over while still young would you not become citizens of both? Or am I just mistaken?

Good thing Dave and his revolving door band hasn't made much music worth listening to since the early 90s. Right now he's probably one of the worst guys in metal.

Nothing Alex Jones says has any basis in fact, nor does any conspiracy theory about Obama trying to ban guns.

Dave also supported Rick Santorum for president.

Dammit Mustaine, you're making it really hard to keep liking you!

Why can't you be more like this?

"Politics drive me crazy, and I don't like talking politics. Politics get in the way of things; they get in the way of getting things done, and getting our music across is what we wanna do — we don't wanna cloud it with 'Democrat, Republican,' whatever. Our philosophy is 'think for yourself' at the end of the day — do what you think feels right." -James Hetfield

8/22/2012 3:28:13 PM

Then how do you explain why Obama has not thought to actually follow through and call for a gun ban?

How stupid are we

Oh, the delicious irony...

Megadeth? Shouldn't it be MegaDumb?

"how stupid are we right now?"

I think it's safe to declare DEFCON 3 levels of stupid with regards to your statements.

Blaming shootings which were made possible/not caught because of/made easier by lax gun control on Barack Obama & co. with absolutely no supporting evidence whatsoever? Based on a supposed gun-control agenda his administration has NEVER pursued in nearly 4 years of office? Really? We're supposed to believe that?

8/22/2012 10:26:00 PM


Funny. President Obama has only signed legislation that expands the rights of firearm ownership and and the carrying of same. I think ol' Dave has provided a little more evidence that meth leads to inevitable brain damage.

8/23/2012 1:12:00 AM


If there was a film taken of Barack Obama being birthed in Hawaii, in full color, with proper sound, the bashers would still believe it was fake in order to make Obama a citizen. Really? How gullible are Americans? THIS GULLIBLE!

8/23/2012 2:09:04 AM


"and recently bashed the President during an interview with Alex Jones"

That says it all. No reason for any sane and reasonably intelligent person, that cares about truth, to listen to a word Mustaine says.

@ Scourge

That seems to come along with aging process.

Remember "War Pigs"?


@ A Man Called True


Although a raging lunatic, Jones IS antiwar and generally a civil libertarian.

Yeah, that sounds likely.[/sarcasm]
