Horrible Political News About Megadeth's Dave Mustaine

If you are not familiar with Megadeth or even if you are, most will realize that Dave Mustaine was one of the most outspoken people from the center/left. He challenged the military/industrial complex, said that Peace was a sham because it wasn't profitable to the war profiteers, slammed Bush 41, had a song about "Religious Wars", and even had a song about the outrageous act of "canned hunting."

It seemed nothing was out of ear-shot of this maniac, but I have read an interview that makes me sick. Mustaine has gone from an intelligent, thoughtful person to a goddamn screaming right-wing freak....This pablum sounds like something Toby Keith would say.

RE: Iraq

It needed to happen. The Americans went in there to liberate Iraq. A lot of people dont think they were being liberated because France didnt join in, Germany didnt join in and neither did Russia. The reason they didnt join in was because they had billions of dollars in stake with building the oil fields in the North of Iraq. The reason Russia, Germany and France supported us when we went into Afghanistan was because Afghanistan is a shit-hole. The people I believe are probably very lovely people - Ive never met any Afghanis but, you know, Russia wasnt making billion dollar oil fields up there. Afghanistan was known for its poppy production which results in heroin. Afghanistan is renowned for its hashish. If Germany, France and Russia went into Iraq, public opinion would be different. People in the music business, in America, are talking bad about Bushyou know what? Shut the fuck up! Youre a musician; you dont know a thing about running a country! If there would have been a better man to run the States right now, we would have picked him, its a democratic process. There are a couple of guys who run for office, everybody picks him, he goes to the next level. Shut up, hes the fucking president! Theres gonna be an election, if you dont like him go for the other guy. Dont sit back there and just piss and moan. I see all these guys like Michael Moore going off and Im like dude, you dont have a fucking idea about what youre talking about.

He goes on to bash Michael Moore...

This is what our fist in your face metal gods of the past are all about?

I guess I'm sticking with the masters...Punk Rockers and Liberal activists Bad Religion

(It is worth a note: I understand Dave Mustaine went through some kind of religious experience after he had to disband the band. He is "born again" or something and I guess that means you move right.)
