It seems like Dave Mustaine just can’t stop himself from getting wrapped up into political and social debates. From saying he’d move if Obama got re-elected to saying it’s the current President’s fault for mass shootings, he has left a lot of people face palming. Now the Megadeth axeman has decided to provide work for a conservative documentary. And we’re not talking about a respectfully done conservative documentary, with well researched facts and valid arguments either.
The documentary, simply called America, was done by Indian born filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. For those of you unfamiliar with D’Souza’s work, (I’m assuming most, if not all of you) his previous credits have been hailed as “personal more than political,” “a nonsensically unsubstantiated act of character assassination,” and…yeah…you get the picture. Previous films by him have received an amazing 26% on Rotten Tomatoes.
While we will always love Dave for the legendary albums he has brought us, and his constant work as a good front-man live, he seems to be making it harder and harder for fans to connect with him anymore. One can only guess where Dave is going to go from here.
