Megadeth's Dave Mustaine accuses Barack Obama of 'staging' shootings in Aurora and Wisconsin

Singer says his country is 'turning into Nazi America'

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has delivered a shocking diatribe against US President Barack Obama and has accused him of "staging" the recent shootings in Aurora, Colorado and at the Wisconsin Sikh temple.

The singer was performing with his band last Tuesday (August 7) in Singapore when he delivered the bizarre rant against the president, who he said was trying to secure new laws to control gun ownership by staging the shootings.

Speaking in a fan-shot video, which you can see at the top of the page, Mustaine also said that he believed the United States was "turning into Nazi America."

He said: "Back in my country, my president 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, all the people that were killed there and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."

Despite the stunned silence from the crowd, he continued, 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.


This is the second time Mustaine has made a high-profile outburst against Obama, having previously said that he believes the President was not born in America and is therefore an illegitimate President.

He said at the time: "I have a lot of questions about [Obama], but certainly not where he was born. I know he was born somewhere else than America. How come [Obama] was invisible until he became, uh, whatever he was in Illinois? They don't have any record of him.''

In 2011 Megadeth released their 13th studio album, titled 'Th1rt3en'. The album was the follow-up to the band's 2009 LP 'Endgame'.
