Megadeth's Dave Mustaine: 'President Obama was not born in America'

10:31 am - 03/31/2012
The former Metallica guitarist reveals himself to be a 'birther'

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has claimed that US President Barack Obama was not born in America.

The heavy metal frontman and former Metallica guitar player made the comments during an interview with Canadian chat show host George Stroumboulopoulos, reports The Guardian. Mustaine said: "I have a lot of questions about [Obama], but certainly not where he was born. I know he was born somewhere else than America." He added:

"How come [Obama] was invisible until he became, uh, whatever he was in Illinois? They don't have any record of him".

Mustaine, who recently aligned himself with Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, outed himself as a 'birther' during the interview, one of the right wing Americans who deny that Obama was born in the US, even though his birth certificate was released last year and stated that he was born in Hawaii.

Last year Mustaine also claimed that he prolonged the life of a cancer-stricken fan by touching him and praying. The guitarist told Spin that one of his most treasured possessions was a certificate given to him by the fan, that had been signed by the governor of Kentucky.

Mustaine went on to vouch for the legitimacy of the certificate, adding: "It's signed by the governor and says I'm an honorary Kentucky Colonel. As far as I know, it's the real deal."

OP: Roughly translated as: "wahhh wahhh wahhh, Metallica are so much better than me, I better say something stupid to get in the paper cos my LP's are nowhere near as good as my ex-mates".

What a moron...

...well I am glad he is no longer in Metallica, as I'd kinda like to keep listening to them. Why are all these birthers so pathetic? (Although being a Santorum supporter alone is a red fucking flag if there ever was one.)
lastrega 31st-Mar-2012 01:04 pm (UTC)
Being a birther is still a thing? Really?
amyura 31st-Mar-2012 03:38 pm (UTC)
I just defriended someone on Facebook for being a birther. The kicker? He's BLACK. AND he accused me of shilling for Obama just because Obama was black and well-spoken, when in fact I never even mentioned Obama's name, I just called him out on some conservative bullshit he was spouting
iamrosalita 31st-Mar-2012 01:09 pm (UTC)
Just being a Santorum supporter makes this guy an idiot, but the birther thing on top of it? *facepalm

"How come [Obama] was invisible until he became, uh, whatever he was in Illinois? They don't have any record of him"

You can read his entire life story in his autobiography and verify that shit yourself, son. If the thought of logic doesn't scare you too much.

That would involve reading, tho.

Sorry that Myspace and Facebook are the only way to tell people existed after 2004. Unless you find some old obscure message boards from the early 90s. RME

Because clearly he must have been lurking about in one of those super Muslim-countries being all Muslim during those years planning to bring the evils of socialism/communism to America while forging his Hawaii birth certificate. Damn you Obama!!

Or shit I just realized... what if Obama was never born? What if he's some sort of robot constructed by a team of Muslim-terrorist scientists? They sat around evilly laughing for hours when they programmed the Affordable Care Act into him. Take that America!
layweed 31st-Mar-2012 01:43 pm (UTC)
So he's not only saying he thinks Obama is some sort of Manchurian candidate? And lolzzzzzzzzzzz @ the Kentucky Colonel thing.

You're lucky that Frothy's been running his mouth about "antiwar gummint niiiieeeegotiators", otherwise this would be the dumbest fucking thing I've heard all goddamn week.

But of course this shit only happens to people who aren't white.

Well, that's not narcissistic at all.
