Seriously, Dave Mustaine... WTF

Someone is going to post this, so I might as well get it out of the way. Behave yourselves in this thread. I'm warning you now.

Sources: Politico, NY Daily News, Blabbermouth, even TMZ

Dave's quotes are all over the media... August 7th in Singapore at a shoe... "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. .... 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."

The Video: YouTube

Let me quote Alice Cooper from a few years ago: " ... When I was a kid and my parents started talking about politics, I'd run to my room and put on the Rolling Stones as loud as I could. So when I see all these rock stars up there talking politics, it makes me sick. .... If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.

I think people are used to him saying dumb stuff, but if there was anything that would cause some major backlash, it's this. Curious to see how this pans out for him.

I normally laugh off what he says, but this really made him go down a notch in my book. That's literally one of the most ridiculous things I've heard a rock star say, never-mind disrespectful.
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.

What the fuck; I too love Megadeth but this is just pure bullshit on the part of Dave. This ticks me off more so since the movie shooting took place 20 minutes away from me and involved people I know having people hurt. It is his right of free speech to say what he wants, but I also have the right to say he is way out of line.

I really hate to say this, and I wish that no harm comes to anyone, but I am curious if Dave would be saying the same thing if his children were at that theater or any other major shooting in the past 10 years

No, this is easily the worst thing he's said.

Dave Mustaine being a crazy motherfucking far-right conspiracy theorist, nothing out of the ordinary.

I don't consider myself the biggest fan of Obama (nor Romney, for that matter), but that's just ridiculous and borderline slander. When did Dave Mustaine become Ted Nugent?
