It's with a grave face on that we report a strong show of conspiracy theory-based idiocy from MEGADETH front man Dave Mustaine, the heavy metaller who apparently shares the same unfortunate trait as Morrissey of failing to gauge public mood after a major murder incident. Megadeth were out performing in Singapore, when Mustaine decided to stop hollering and, to the chagrin of probably everyone who reads this, opted to give his thoughts on the recent shootings at the Aurora Theatre in Denver that saw 12 people killed and 58 injured last month, as well as the more recent shootings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. He blamed it on President Barack Obama.
"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." Hopefully the locals weren't too versed in English and were able to completely ignore this utterly horrific point of view. Mustaine 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."
We're pretty sure America would be more than happy to see the back of the likes of Mustaine. Not sure which other country would be keen to take him in mind.
