Megadeth Frontman Tells Concert Audience: Obama Staged Aurora And Sikh Temple Shootings

Forget birtherism, how about… mass-shootingism?

Dave Mustaine, the frontman of veteran heavy metal band Megadeth, who has previously expressed his beliefs that President Obama was not born in America, told the audience at his band’s August 7 show in Singapore that the president staged all the recent mass shootings in order to get a gun ban passed:

“Back in my country, my president,” he paused and made a gag gesture with his mouth, “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 and Aurora, Colorado, and all the people that were killed there. And now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple. God.”

Unintelligible jeers are heard throughout, but one attendee clearly shouted: “Hey, we love Obama!”

“I was talking to JD our promoter here tonight, what a great guy,” he continued, “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.'”

The crowd cheered (with a few jeers peppered in) and the band carried on with its performance.
