Years on the road breathing tour bus exhaust fumes appear to have gotten to Dave Mustaine, the sagging leader of MegaDeath, a heavy metal band that had last had some minor popularity sometime in the last century. While in Singapore recently, Mustaine stupefied his audience by declaring that Barack Obama is guilty of mass murder.
Mustaine claimed that Barack Obama planned the recent mass murders at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and a movie theater in Colorado. Why would Obama do such a thing? Mustaine says that it’s all part of a secret plan to take away Americans’ guns.
There’s only one problem with Dave Mustaine’s theory: Reality.
Barack Obama has no plan to take away anyone’s guns.
The culprits in the murders in Wisconsin and Colorado have already been identified.
There is no evidence linking Barack Obama to any murders.
Unfortunately, there are many American voters who believe in crazy conspiracy theories like those promoted by Dave Mustaine. Let’s hope that they also believe that Election Day is held on a Thursday.
