Dave Mustaine: “The Government Is Destroying The US”
Never one to hold back on the old sound-bites, Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has made some pretty inflammatory comments in a new interview with Exclaim.ca.
“My current fixation is that I’m sadly mesmerized by watching the news and how the government is destroying this country,” he says of his homeland. “It’s pretty obvious to me that they’re trying to get rid of the middle class. It also seems like we’re moving more towards a single world currency, and I find that very frightening.
“Everyone needs to shut up about this whole Occupy Wall Street thing,” he continues. “I think the protesters have very good intentions, but it’s an example of good being misled. The President is setting these guys up to be dead in the road. Everyone should protest at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue if they want some change. I also really hate some of these bleeding hearts, like Michael Moore, the fat dude who does these exposés. We don’t need more of that; we need lower taxes and governments that listen.”
