Megadeth Singer

Obama 'Staged' Aurora

Shooting Massacre

8/15/2012 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

081512_mustaine_launch
Dave Mustaine -- the lead singer of Megadeth -- believes Barack Obama "staged" the massacre in Aurora, CO in a sick, twisted plot to pass a gun ban.

Mustaine made the comments on stage at an August 7 performance in Singapore ... when he told the crowd, "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."

He continued, "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."

Obviously, Mustaine is not an Obama fan ... and recently bashed the President during an interview with Alex Jones ... saying, "With all of the proof about his birth certificate being fake. And you see the signs in Kenya that say 'the birthplace of Barack Obama.' Hello?! C'mon, guys. How stupid are we right now?"

Oh sweet Jesus. Really? Is this actually a thing now? I heard a few nutbags going on about it and didn't think it could possibly catch on. Here's the problem with the "Obama staged the massacre" thing. To what end? To give people more stuff to blame on him? Clearly it couldn't be to try to convince the American public that banning guns is a bad idea. First of all, guns are big business. Second of all, gun sales go up a little more each time there is one of these mass shootings because people don't feel safe anymore. It makes sense but taking the time to think about it would mean less time to lob around insane conspiracy theories. Now here's the deal. I have no problem with conspiracy theories because I think some of them are right on the money but each time one of these new, baseless and completely moronic theories gets airtime, the less the legitimate theories are taken seriously.

Wait a minute....is what this man said any more insane than saying Bush staged September 11th???? For the record, anyone that thinks Bush staged September 11th is too stupid to live, and likewise with the Aurora CO shooting being staged by Obama.

And he is right. Fast and Furious, it has been proven, was implemented to try to convince the public to pass a ban on firearms.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a shooting at a Batman premiere...that infuriates the common people.
A Shooting at a Sikh temple...that attacks the peaceful Indian population.
Now...most recently...a shooting at a Conservative family center in hopes that it will bring some Conservatives into the anti-gun argument.

Watch for more shootings and more violence the closer we get to election day.

Then ask yourself...why are the National Weather Service and Social Security Office buying thousands of rounds of Hollow Point Ammunition (HPA)?
HPA has been ruled illegal in international combat since 1899....so why buy it?
And why would those particular organizations need to buy it all of a sudden?

Something is brewing folks. Pay attention because it is going to pop in October.

Faked Obama birth certificate PROOF??
Signs in Kenya about it being Obama's birthplace.... and you believes everything that comes out of... KENYA, of all places? Lay off the pipes, dude.

Ok, which reality tv show is he pining for? I hope it's one where it's participants get to life in the alternate country of their choice because America is so "bad". Buh-bye, Dave!
