Megadeth singer on Obama: Not born in the USA
Times 24|7 ^ | 3/31/12 | Ethan Sacks

Posted on 03/31/2012 6:09:51 PM PDT by lward99

Megadeth front man Dave Mustaine has an ax to grind with President Obama.

The heavy metal singer-guitarist, who once wrote the lyrics to the anti-George H.W. Bush administration song "Foreclosure of a Dream," told a Canadian talk show that he subscribes to the “birthers” conspiracy theory that Obama was not really born in the United States.

It is standard leftist/fascist tactics to ridicule whatever they don’t like, hence the pejorative “birther”

Yeh...he was pretty popular with the headbanging crowd (I was not one, but I knew friends of all sorts) in the 80’s.

So, you’re saying Megadeath is mega dead?

Hard to believe he didn’t right “Train of Consequences” about Obama but that one is at least 15 years old.

I’m doing you a favor
As I’m taking all your money
I guess I should feel sorry
But I don’t even trust me
There’s bad news creeping up
And you feel a sudden chill
How do you do? My name is trouble
I’m coming in for the kill...
And you know I will

Mustaine is a bit smarter than the average bear. A man who holds no love for the UN.

Within striking distance from Ground Zero sits a smoldering international cauldron, the United “Abominations” as it were. Born to prevent wars, it froze in the face of disaster and stood silent while terrorization to hostage of the world
In a mire of hypocrisy, the U.N. ignores sex crimes by its “blue helmets”, and enables terrorism; so in the end it’s failed and the U.N. is where our
so-called friends get to stab us in the back and we pay 22% of their tab to host our
enemies here at home.

Ambassadors from countries enjoy otherwise known as a catastrophe, enjoy Diplomatic immunity living in Manhattan, while their children are turned into prostitutes It’s a complete and utter disgrace, a blot on the face of humanity, and they get away with it.

Poverty in their kitchens
Held hostage by oil-for-food
Yet their own plates are full off the fat of their lands
There’s no blood on their hands, right Kojo?
They promised to tell the truth
Without leaving a fingerprint,
They will lose the U.N. one way or another
The victim, I fear will be us, sisters and brothers

The U.N. is right; you can’t be any more “un”
Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come
Don’t tell me the truth; I don’t like what they’ve done
It’s payback time at the United Abominations

A grave and gathering danger
The decision to attack
Based on secret intelligence it’ll take years
I fear to undo the failings in Iraq, Iran, and Korea
You may bury the bodies

But you can’t bury the crimes only
Fools stand up and really lay down their arms
No, not me, not when Death lasts forever

The U.N. is right; you can’t be any more “un”
Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come
Don’t tell me the truth; I don’t like what they’ve done
It’s payback time at the United Abominations

“The U.N. writes resolution after resolution and has become irrelevant through inaction and totalitarian paralysis,”
“Order, Order!!!”
“Ha! There is no such thing as order”
“Larry, it’s true, reports confirm today that the United Nations has officially closed its doors forever,”
“Well, I just don’t see what all the fuss is, because they don’t do anything anyway, do they?”

The U.N. is right; you can’t be any more “un”
Than you are right now, the U.N. is undone
Another mushroom cloud, another smoking gun
The threat is real, the Locust King has come
Don’t tell me the truth; I don’t like what they’ve done
It’s payback time at the United Abominations

NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N.
The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N.
Saddam Hussein violated 17 U.N. resolutions; The U.N. was asked to join the
war in Iraq. The U.S. invaded, Ha! there was no U.N.
Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N.
Iran funds Hamas, and attacked the U.S. in the
seventies, there was no stinking U.N.
Facing War without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N.

I’m going to be consistent... who really cares what a celebrity says?

If it's a celebrity babbling on about how wonderful, intelligent, sophisticated, nuanced, etc... a liberal politician is, the presstitutes really care and will broadcast it 24/7. Ditto if they criticize a Conservative.

If they praise a Conservative (i.e., Fiddy Cent complimenting G.W. Bush) or criticize a Lib, the eneMedia will spike the story.

I hope this helps!

There’s far worse band names.

At that, it’s only a name. Sort of like what we ascribe to stars or galaxies, like Andromeda or Arcturus.

More mellow for Megadeth but I like “A Tout Le Monde” because this Cristina Scabbia has a spectacular voice.

How many Gibson guitars are named after you because you designed them?

Let's see, his songs that have enjoyed a LOT of airplay include...

Foreclosure of a dream Symphany of Destruction Peace Sells Hangar 18 Angry Again 99 Ways to Die High Speed Dirt

...and my personal favorite... A Tout le Monde, performed with Cristina Scabbia.

Have you gotten much airplay?

The band’s name comes from a phrase uttered in the early 80’s by former California Senator Alan Cranston (a man who makes Harry Reid look like a genius by comparison) warning about “nuclear megadeath” coming to America if we didn’t agree to ban all nuclear weapons and give the Soviets everything they wanted. They just changed the spelling to make it fit better on t-shirts. :)

Megadeath is a term that’s been around since early in the atomic age.

meg·a·death [meg-uh-deth]

noun

a unit of one million deaths: used in estimating or predicting the fatalities that would occur in a nuclear war.

Dave Mustaine seems to be the real deal. Got himself cleaned up, Christian, and no-nonsense libertarian if not full-blown conservative views. Quite a difference from his pro-abortion “benefit” concerts of the 90s.

I don’t think Dave needs accessories IMO but I’m sure he’d agree with you since he decided to remake it with her. (I like the slower pace of the original.)
