show no signs of halting his run of outlandish statements in 2013.
In his latest rant, the Megadeth
frontman threw his weight behind the "chemtrail"
conspiracy theory. Believers claims that the trail left by aircraft is a mixture of chemicals which are sprayed across the sky by government officials.
"Shame on the pilots spraying the grid lines in the once beautiful skies of San Diego. Shame, shame, shame!"
he tweeted. "It's aluminum oxides & barium salts. They know what their cargo is. Only a fool or an accomplice would argue the unarguable."
Dave neglects to mention that the trails are instead just condensation known as 'contrails'
. Of course, engines do produce a lot of nasty chemicals, but they'remore a threat to the environment (which the government often ignores), rather than a conspiracy by the government.
2012 saw many controversial statements from Mustaine, including that African women should "put a plug in it"
if they couldn't afford more children, and that President Obama secretly staged the shootings
across America. By November, his bandmates in Megadeth made it clear that Mustaine doesn't speak for the band.
