OH FOR F*CK’S SAKE DAVE MUSTAINE
If you start watching the below video around the 2:38 mark, you can listen to Dave Mustaine accuse President Obama of “staging” the shootings in Aurora and at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin so that he could “pass a gun ban.” In other words, he thinks Obama is having people killed in the interest of turning the U.S. into “Nazi America,” as Mustaine so beautifully puts it. Which is not only a really, really crazy thing to say, but it’s a really, really offensive thing to say, and an incredibly serious accusation to make. Of course, it’s not at all against the law for Mustaine to say it, because he’s American, and Americans, unlike occupants of Nazi Germany, enjoy freedom of speech. That’s also why I can sit and here and type and publish this joke…
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Dave Mustaine’s penis, and James Hetfield are all in a race for a platinum album. Who will win? James Hetfield, of course — there’s no such thing as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or Dave Mustaine’s penis.
…and not really get in any trouble for it. See, Dave? It’s not quite Nazi America yet.
Thanks for all the e-mails about this.
