Megadeth Singer

Obama 'Staged' Aurora

Shooting Massacre

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

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?"

Man I'm so sick of all the idiotic political BS going on everywhere. People need to remember what it was like right after 9/11 when we were 'one' . . . NOT a divided place . . . along political / racial / religious etc etc lines like we are now. Everyone is 'playing' politics while the country and the world are going to sh-t.

Yes, she's the middle child to my understanding , you're going to get the jealously thing. I think it was false from the start, but at least if she went into with the intent of it being real, she did have the self esteem to walk away when she realized it wasn't a real marriage. Some wouldn't. But as I said I think it was staged on her part to start with.

God bless America. Freedom of speech is one of the most precious rights we have. Maybe I'm in a minority here but it should be respected and used with responsibility. This idiot sounds more like he's speaking in an asylum instead of on a stage ... in SINGAPORE!

That was an absurd statement. And where is he getting his facts? I would expect Ted Nugent to talk about gun before this miss.

Well, Duh. Deride all you want, but he's not off-base.

The shooting in Aurora happened the very week that we were negotiating with the UN to join the Small Arms Treaty, which would have American citizens register their firearms with the United Nations. Many have been fighting our joining that treaty, and the US had put off voting on it . . . and all of a sudden, Aurora. That very week?
And since, in the course of 2 months, 3 or 4 more? Mass shootings are rare, happening usually only once or so a decade. To group together 3 or 4 of them in that short of a time . . . very rare and very convenient. Especially since attacking the 2nd Amendment and disarming our citizens is on the Obama agenda for his 2nd term.

Obama has stripped more constitutional liberties than any previous president; yes, even more than GWB. Freedoms of Speech & Religion have been severely curtailed, and the 4th Amendment is virtually non-existent.

The Hitler analogy is completely apropos. Hitler created a class/race warfare & then stripped his citizenry of their weapons before singling out the Jews for persecution. If you look at Marxist doctrine, and at European history, you will find that the exact steps being taken in this country are the exact steps that every dictator has taken right before he convinces his people to vote in a communist state. Steps including creating jealousy of people who have earned more than you, anger over business/free market, racial tension, offering more government services, tanking the economy so that more people are dependent, and creating a general psychological state of anger & unease. That's when the citizenry turns on each other, starts singling people out, and willingly allows government to take over every aspect of their lives in the belief that government will solve their problems.

But the American people do not even realize this. All they see are the manufactured problems, and don't notice the gradual stripping away of their constitutional liberties. Even worse, we're willingly allowing it.

People who know this are derided as idiots, uneducated or conspiracy theorists. That's actually part of the Saul Alinsky playbook, in which he states that if people point out the uncomfortable truth, you are to ridicule them and make them look like fools so that the public won't take them seriously. But in truth, people who are screaming about you losing your liberties are seeing the long-term picture of what's happening, each little step in the ladder that isolated, looks harmless, but when put in a progressive line, points in a specific direction . . . . and these people know the history as well as the doctrine (Alinsky, Mao, Marx, Lenin, Castro) these steps are taken from. The majority of people are not educated on these issues.

So ridicule all you want, but the loss of individual liberty and constitutional freedoms IS the REAL issue of what's going on here. Everything else is manufactured distraction.
