I haven’t covered the ridiculous “insights” of Dave Mustaine as I have for another nut-job singer/guitarist, but that’s because what Mustaine says doesn’t usually draw the ire of the Secret Service. Mustaine’s nonsensical babbling is just that – nonsensical. It isn’t threatening or otherwise worrisome.
This time, however, Mustaine took his (insane) view of reality to new heights of absurdity, reserved only for Scientologists and OJ Simpson jury.
He apparently believes that the recent shootings in Colorado and my home state of Wisconsin were the work of Obama. As in, he thinks that the President staged them so that he can pass more restricting gun control legislation. Or as he put it:
My president is trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast and Furious’ thing down at the border – you know, Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.
He said this in front of an audience in Singapore. Because that’s the best place to voice a political opinion of an American about his home country.
The madness doesn’t stop there. He also suggested that if the USA continues its current course, it’ll into “Nazi America.” Yup, you read that correctly. He took the torch of insanity and just fucking sprinted like a champ to the finish line.
You can hear it in all its crazy glory below.
