Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says Obama ‘staged’ Colorado and Wisconsin shootings

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine is on the receiving end of massive ridicule after making nutty on-stage comments linking President Obama to the recent gun massacres in America.

On tour in Singapore, the outspoken birther conflated the Wisconsin and Colorado tragedies with the federal government’s deadly Operation Fast and Furious.

Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban so he’s staging all of these murders. The ‘Fast and Furious’ thing down at the border. And Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now, the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.

As video of the incident spread, Mustaine was pilloried universally for his comments.

In a bit of musical profiling, criticism of Mustaine soon spread to include conservative guitarist Ted Nugent, with some even drawing a line to Mitt Romney and the GOP.

We’re not expecting to catch Mustaine headlining at Romney rallies any time soon.

    *can’t believe Twitchy did an article on a link I posted in a comment* *smiles*

    I do think his comments are a bit nutty, but why /are/ all these shootings happening?

    BTW, I saw Nugent last week; that was awesome! ^^

    Never speak ill of POTUS or the republic on foreign soil. That’s a Dixie Chick move.

      Even though his comments are worth looking into because of other issues this POTUS has with guns. I do agree with you this was a total Dixie chick move. I’ll always be a Megadeth fan though.

    I don’t see how it’s any more far-fetched than conspiracy theorists claiming Bush and the CIA staged 9/11 to go get oil and revenge for his daddy. Of course, I’m a huge Megadeth fan.

      And of course there are leftards now claiming FRC was staged by “right-wingers.”

    Once again proving that people can see a conspiracy if they only look hard enough.
    What a kook.

    that’s nuts. Of course two years ago if you told me the feds were giving guns to Mexican drug lords to show the need for gun laws,
    I’d say you were nuts…but that happened. #FastAndFurious

    Who wants to bet this guy is a paleocon?

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    Dave’s right, it wouldn’t surprise me the Chicago Jesus did just that.

  • TruthHonestReality

    The 0bama admin had nothing to do with the fast/furious operation?
    It’s funny how libs all feel the need to call people names and try to dismiss someone’s comments, only because they simply don’t agree with it.
