Sikh temple shooter's soundtrack of hate
Fox News ^ | 8/6/12 | FoxNews.com

Posted on 08/06/2012 12:13:30 PM PDT by KingOfVagabonds

Wade Michael Page, the tattooed white supremacist and former Army soldier police say gunned down six Sikhs in a Milwaukee-area temple before a police officer killed him, spread his message of hate through several rock bands for more than a decade before mounting his bloody rampage Sunday.

Some information on the band:

Based out of North Carolina, End Apathy is the creation of Wade who previously has played with several US bands including Youngland. EA was his solo creation and over the years he wrote and recorded several songs by himself. This past year he hooked up with Brent and the Definite Hate guys and they have been jamming and recording. End Apathy has now played several live shows and their first recordings are also out now on the split 7" vinyl with Definite Hate released by Label 56 in February of 2011. I am very happy to be working with Wade and End Apathy as they have a great old school hardcore/punk sound to them and remind me a lot of the old California skate bands of the 80`s. You can read an interview with Wade here (*)

(*) Unfortunately, the link to the interview appearing on this site http://uprisedirect.blogspot.com returns a hosted page that the article no longer exists. Label 56 has also issued a statement on their home page, "...all images and products related to End Apathy have been removed from our site. We do not wish to profit from this tragedy financially or with publicity."

I note the May 2010 interview is mentioned in part, even with Q&A excerpts, on various news sites including this one on Fox, but the full interview in at least two locations has since has been scrubbed. Guess they want to restrict what we know about him.

I find it interesting how fast this has been handled. If anyone finds the full original interview, could you kindly ping me? Thank you.

Fast & Furious IV?:

This guy is 'made to order' and Janet Napolitano couldn't be happier. Our government knew better than to choose a mosque for this operation. A Sikh temple would generate more sympathy than a mosque would (Some Americans would see an attack on a Mosque as a good thing). Sorry, but this incident so soon after Holmes' attack stinks to high heaven of a false flag operation. White guy, ex-military, white supremacist, skinhead, tattoos, attack on Sikhs.. The news media was QUICK to apply all the right words and labels here.. Janet Napolitano scripted this thing.

Reichstage fire.

Ten to one Reno’s and now Holder’s DOJ and FBI have been cultivating this guy for a decade.

I wonder if anyone realized that the Sikhs are Aryans?

Many of us figured the 24-hr delay in reporting the shooter's identity was done for "sanitizing" purposes. Odds are, the commies in the media will continue to follow that practice whenever possible.

And while on the topic of information control, did you notice this?...

Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's intelligence project, said Page had been on the group's radar since 2000, when he tried to purchase goods from the National Alliance, a well-known hate group. She said the group has evidence that Page attended "hate events" around the country.

****

To which "special database" has SPLC been granted access, I wonder?

Also interesting that ‘Iran’ is ‘Aryan’ translated.

Yes, I did read that and have been researching it a bit. What goods are available and so on. The scrubbing teams were busy. Parallels to Aurora.

I posted a similar question in a Seattle Times comment section a while back. Some lefty claimed that we were fighting in Afghanistan because of "racism". I asked if they knew that most Afghanis were caucasian. Got a lot of thumbs down for that one. Not good to question a playa when he throws down the race card.

Yup. That's all this is.

Army psy-ops? Less-than-honorable discharge?

He's an asset they produced and have been running for years. Finally lit the fuse on him, made him go.

Too bad they feel like the innocents are expendable. Of course, they've been blowing up whoever they want all over the planet, why would the fact that it's people in the U.S. stop them?

Is it just my perception or....

this killing seems to be getting about 1/5th the publicity of the Colorado one - both in the MSM and on FR

Logarithmics of the Macabre. This killing only has half the victims, thus 1/5th the publicity. Surprising given the media dream-perp.

From the article:

“’The topics vary from sociological issues, religion and
how the value of human life has been degraded by being
submissive to tyranny and hypocrisy that we are
subjugated to,’ Page said.”

Religion? Perhaps he was a Muslim.

Maybe it has to do with the timing of the incident and news cycles, weekend, etc. Also, the skin color of the victims probably matters to the MSM.

Simply change it from the "Colorado one" to the "Batman Joker one" and that alone will explain much of the difference in public and media reaction. You had the tie-in to a hit movie and it was carried out in a unique fashion. Plus, people wondered why an intelligent young man would do such a thing. So all this made for both a tragic yet compelling news story. What happened yesterday was horrible but not all that compelling in regards to the murderer.

What are the politics of some of the songs? One article I saw in a google search indicated he opposed Bush’s entry into Iraq.

Did he have any 9-11 truther leanings?

What sort of anti-authority song lyrics are there? Any anti-police?

His band (End Apathy) was in an Ernie Ball sponsored “battle of the bands” competition to play The Warped Tour (during the Bush years when numerous acts used the touring festival to denounce President Bush although some like the Vandals used it to shout support to Bush, possibly to antagonize the crowd).

Band conflicts at the Warped Tour music festival

http://www.helium.com/items/1500392-band-conflicts-at-the-warped-tour-music-festival

... Of course, with a concert this large- with rabid raging fans and angry bands alike- there are bound to be conflicts.

... In 2004, the band Guttermouth was kicked off Warped Tour. The members of the band wore clothing that supported the Bush administration and verbally abused other bands because the members of Guttermouth believed that those bands cared more about money and their clothes than the music they made. One of the bands that Guttermouth criticized was rumored to be My Chemical Romance.

... In 2006, the Christian metal band Underoath quit Warped Tour due to comments that were made by NoFx. Underoath stated they needed to focus on their friendship. NoFx’s front man Fat Mike was quoted “Most bands on the Warped Tour this year really aren’t that good, like Underoath, not that good. We don’t care about our fans; we just want to offend as many people as we can.” It was said that he later quoted “If you are Christian or believe in God like Underoath, I would leave right now because I am trying to offend as many Christians as I can.”


The media spins “HATE music” as they see fit. I doubt the Southern Poverty Law Center included Fat Mike’s bands/label in his designation of hate groups even though he is a self professed anti-Christian.

The media has their meme in full spin.

Obama claimed that Afghanistan was the “right war” and Iraq was a “wrong war”.

SPLC is a communist front.

Hard to believe a guy so into racial hate cant tell the difference between the Sikhs and the Muzzies.

No LOGICAL reason to attack Sikhs.

Almost like he was preprogrammed.

The media is uninterested in covering the prolonged prosecution of the Ft. Hood terrorist who is still actively serving in the military drawing his salary and unwilling to shave his non-regulation beard.

Yet the media is all over the place bragging this man in the temple shooting is (A) a domestic terrorist and (B) a military veteran (who was KICKED OUT in 1998).
