Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Accuses President Obama Of Staging Aurora Massacre

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has been open about his dislike for President Obama for awhile now, but during a speech he gave at a concert earlier this month, that hatred morphed into one of the wildest conspiracy theories I have ever heard. Speaking about the recent massacres in Aurora and at the Sikh temple, the musician accused the President of “staging” the crimes in order to “pass a gun ban”.
Mustaine didn’t get into the specifics of how he thinks the President orchestrated the tragic events, but he has spoken at length lately about his confidence Obama was born out of the United States and his disdain for his plan to tax the wealthiest of Americans at even higher rates than they already pay.
You can take a look at footage of Mustaine’s rant, first uncovered by Blabbermouth. It begins around 2:30…
Hating the President’s policies is one thing, but accusing him of arranging some of the most upsetting mass murders in recent memory is another. In order to do the latter, someone should really offer up some evidence. Unfortunately for Mustaine, he doesn’t offer any of it beyond the vague he-wants-to-ban-guns argument.
By all accounts, Mustaine is a pretty well read guy. He’s also always been a dude willing to stand by his opinions. As a result, we should learn where the hell this upsetting idea came from in the coming days. We'll keep you updated.
