I can't believe it's been a whole two months without a crazy Dave Mustaine story! In the last year, Mustaine got heat for supporting Rick Santorum in a possible election run (so much for that), as well as openly opposing gay marriage, telling women in Africa to "put a plug in it" and most controversially denying that he is a birther, but still believing that Obama wasn't born in this country.
In a recent stop to the hyperbolic paranoia machine known as Info Wars, with host Alex Jones, Mustaine opened up a lot about politics and said a lot of asinine things. A good portion of the conversation was about the state of affairs in American government, and his strong opposition of the current tax system. We will go into greater detail about that on this weekend's Livecast. What I want to focus on right now, is his absurd position on President Barack Obama:
"Why hasn't somebody moved to impeach this man? 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 guess the best revenge is when you look back in history at what Michelle [Obama] wore at his inauguration and she had a black dress on with two red triangles, so she looked like a black widow turned upside down. So there's gotta be some symbology there. You just don't wear something like that to some event like that without there being some kind of future message being told."
Of all the things to criticize Barack Obama on, how is this still an issue? There are birth certificates a plenty available to check, and yet Mustaine cannot drop this. And his proof is a sign? Guess what? About three seconds of Googling shows that sign was complete photoshop:
Lay off Obama! After all, he gets in the mosh pit just like the rest of us! You can read more excerpts here, and like I said, we will be going into great depth with this on this weekend's episode of the Metal Injection Livecast, so we hope you can tune in. For now, we present our book reading a few years ago:
