7 Dead at Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wis.; Officials Believe 'White Supremacist' Behind 'Domestic
ABC News ^ | August. 5, 2012 | COLLEEN CURRY, MICHAEL S. JAMES, RICHARD ESPOSITO and JACK DATE

Posted on 08/05/2012 8:01:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Seven people were shot and killed today at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., in what officials are treating as a case of domestic terrorism.

Though police have not given any details on the identity or motive of the shooter, or released the identities of the victims, sources have told ABC News the shootings are the work of a "white supremacist" or "skinhead."

This evening, the FBI and a bomb squad arrived at a home in Cudahy, Wis., near Oak Creek, and ABC News Milwaukee affiliate WISN reported the action appeared to be related to the temple shootings earlier in the day.

Authorities also were trying to trace a single, semiautomatic handgun recovered at the scene, sources told ABC News.

The perps name has not been released, but ABC “knows” he is a “white supremist” or “skin head”.

HMMMmm Should we believe this yet?

“Domestic terrorism”. However, that cowardly murderer, Hasan, committed “workplace violence”. Nothing “domestic” or “terrorism”. Sorry Butch. There is no difference. Terrorism is terrorism.

Hmm? This guy that was 4 shooters at the beginning of this video. Then he says after that, that one shooter is down so that leaves 3 still inside. Now the cops are saying there is only one shooter? Who is lying?

Since this is abc, we might want to hold off on this until we hear something from a reliable and credible news source.

Uh, Sikhs are not Muslims: in fact they broke off from the overly pacifist Hindus when they grew tired of the Hindus not stopping the invasion and wholesale slaughter perpetrated by the Muslims.

If it was a skinhead, it was a mighty stupid one, but the media will paint with a broad brush anyway.

I have worked with the Sikhs on South Asian issues for a number of years. From my experience with them, I know this is being taken hard.

The authorities do not seem to be releasing very much information.

Let us hold this in prayer. I know it will be appreciated.

In another article, they are connecting him to white supremacy due to some tattoos he has on his body, which seems to be why the FBI is involved. If he is an actual skinhead white supremacist, the FBI probably knows who he is and has a record on him.

Color me stupid, but skinheads and white supremacist are affiliated with the Nazis, which is short for national socialist. Socialist are left wing nuts, not right wing. We need to hammer that home and quit letting LSM tie them to conservatives.

Colorado settled down to quickly, and did not produce a significant amount of unrest. Fresh headlines are needed. A race-based religious atrocity would be shocking, but not one involving the Muslims — pick someone a bit safer.

Am I the only person who is feeling a distinct chill here?

Do NOT make the assumption that this is what it appears on the surface. This is just too “convenient”.

I found a skinhead site—”Stormfront.org”—where bloggers are complaining about the loneliness of being a Wisconsin skinhead. Stuff like:

“Where are all the wisconsin skinheads at? I feel like i’m the only skin up here. if anyone knows of any active groups/ people drop me a line. I need to get in contact with them.”

I have run into these kinds of bid, dumb, muscular, brutish as*holes in stateside US convenience stores with their cock of the walk attitude heading for the beer freezer, biker regalia/outfits, huge nazi and white power tattoos in clear site, crappy attitude for the non-white person at the counter just doing his or her job, and you could tell these guys were probably a) out from prison after hard time, and b) hardcore Aryan Brotherhood types.

We have to see what the evidence yields, but to pretend as if this jackass element in the USA does not exist, no matter how small, is to behave like an ostrich if you ask me. And I know for a fact they cannot stand anyone who is non-White. They are just as scumbag as New Black Panthers. Different side of the same coin. These are the de-evolutionary descendents of the Nazi Brownshirts in pre-war German, and I give them no more slack than I would give a hardcore OWS or Che Guevara Leftist type. Often they cannot tell a Sikh, from a Hindu, from a Muslim, from a Bah'ai, or a Chinese from a Japanese from a Korean from a Vietnamese. They hate all these people equally(because fundamentally they hate themselves and know they are at the bottom of the societal shit pile themselves) and thankfully the slime account for maybe 1 or 2% of the American populace at that. That is 1 or 2% too much if you ask me.

Sadness out for the Sikh victims. Something I did not see on a lot of the FR threads about this mass shooting and horrid scene but I saw a lot, rightly so, for Aurora, or Ft. Hood or other places.

Yep and they also were at his home I believe. I also find it odd that an eyewitness report said there were 3 or 4 individuals now there is only one who is dead. I am sorry but everything I am hearing or seeing as of late I find suspect. Trust no one

If the “supremacist” story is true, it’s really bad; I myself was shocked after 9/11 at how many Americans actually thought Indians were Muslim - and a lot of those people apparently sat through at least four years of college. You would think something would have sunk in via osmosis if nothing else.
