Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Criticizes President Obama

Perhaps the Megadeth mainman is just laying the groundwork for Vic Rattlehead’s 2012 presidential campaign, but Dave Mustaine recently denounced President Obama’s handling of Occupy Wall Street.

Metal and politics aren’t the most synonymous realms, but that has never stopped Dave Mustaine from making social commentary and political statements with Megadeth’s music. His latest government critique comes not in the form of song, but in that of spoken word. According to Blabbermouth, Dave recently shared his thoughts about our President via the Australian radio show ‘The Racket':

“I’ve never — never — heard a president say, ‘Go down and join the protesters down at Wall Street,’ knowing that there are Nazis down there, knowing that there are people down there who are trust-fund babies, that are super, super wealthy and they’re going down there and pretending that they really care; they just wanna be part of the “movement.”

Mustaine also called Obama “the most divisive President we’ve ever had,” and further charged the President with attempting to “turn one class of people against another class of people.” Dave’s main complaint against the Occupy Wall Street movement is the amount of money being wasted on police who are forced to monitor the protest — which costs an extra $125,000 a day.

In non-political Megadeth news, their new album ‘TH1RT3EN’ will be out November 1st and the band just released another song titled ‘Black Swan’ from the forthcoming album.
