Over the past year, Megadeth lead singer Dave Mustaine has been increasingly vocal in his criticism of President Barack Obama. But during an Aug. 7 concert in Singapore’s Fort Canning Park, he suprised his audience claiming that the president is the mastermind behind recent domestic terror:

“Back in my country, my president … he’s trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the border … Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there … and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple.”

Later in his monologue, Mustaine went on to suggest that he may move to Singapore — a state not exactly known for its libertarian values — to escape the terror of “Nazi America.”

This is not the first time Mustaine has spoken out against the current Washington regime; in a March interview, he told a Canadian broadcaster that “I know [Obama] was born somewhere else than America,” and in February, the rocker also expressed his support for Rick Santorum in the GOP presidential primaries.
