Ok, Dave Mustaine has said some really crazy things before like Obama wasn't born in this country, African women should put a plug in it and more which we document in our ongoing segment, Mustaine Mania. Today, he may have said, quite possibly, the craziest thing he's ever said.
During a performance last week (Aug. 7, 2012) in Singapore, Mustaine was ranting after somebody threw a shoe on stage (who throws a shoe, honestly?) and somehow got on the topic of gun control in America, and pulled out of his ass that President Obama staged shootings in Aurora (during the The Dark Knight Rises screening) and the recent Sikh temple shooting so that he can pass gun control. Yes, the President thought it was worth losing innocent American lives just to pass a bill. Seriously. Here is the direct quote:
"Back in my country, my president [makes puking sign with his finger in his mouth], 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; [the massacre in] Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there; and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple [near Milwaukee, Wisconsin]."
He continued, "I was talking to J.D., our promoter here tonight… What a great guy. I was 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. And he said, 'Move down here to Singapore.'"
I am in complete shock. Dave, you have said some crazy things before, but this is the most absolute bat-shit crazy thing I've ever heard. You can watch Dave say this on this documented video (starts at 2:43)
I know that the other members of Megadeth have said previously that they love the controversy that Dave surrounds himself with, but seriously guys, this is way out of hand. Maybe Oderus needs to tell him to "shut the fuck up" again.
