There are conspiracy theories, and then there is the stuff that comes out of Dave Mustaine's mouth. Mustaine, the frontman for heavy-metal band Megadeth, has accused President Obama of masterminding the "Dark Knight Rises" shooting and other incidents in order to pass gun-control legislation.

Mustaine made his rather extreme accusations in the middle of an Aug. 7 concert in Singapore during the the band's "Th1rt3en World Tour." In the middle of the show, he took a moment with the microphone to express his extreme dislike for the president.

"Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban, so he's staging all of these murders," Mustaine says. "The 'Fast and Furious' thing down at the border. And Aurora, Colorado -- all the people that were killed there. And now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple. I was talking to J.D., our promoter here tonight -- what a great guy. I was saying, I don't know where I'm going to live if America keeps going the way it's going, because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."

Mustaine's allegations refer to the Aug. 5 shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, the July 20 "Dark Knight Rises" shooting in Colorado, and the December 2010 murder of an Arizona border agent and subsequent scandal involving the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. If you believe Mustaine, all of these are the fault of President Obama.

It's not as if Mustaine has kept quiet in the past about his dislike for Obama. In several interviews, the singer has gone on the record as believing that Obama was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii, birth certificate notwithstanding. Thus, the recent outburst in Singapore is only the most extreme version of Dave Mustaine's issues with the president.
