The information coming out about Wade Michael Page, the man who recently went to a Sikh Temple in the state of Wisconsin and killed 6 people, reveals that he was an Army vet, less-than-honorably discharged in 1998. He served in psy-ops and was also a musician who played in white power bands. In 2005 he started his own band called End Apathy.
Potok says the music is so violent and full of lyrics talking about carrying out genocide against the Jews and other minorities that the whole business exists almost exclusively over the Internet.

For example, below you’ll find a music video of a live performance by the band Definite Hate, a white power band from North Carolina which shares some of the same members as Page’s band. This took place in the meeting hall of the National Socialists Movement, a neo-Nazi group. According to the poster of the video, this was in Laurens, South Carolina
The fact that this “scene” still exists in 2012 is quite unbelievable. But there it is.
As for Page’s own band “End Apathy”, their MySpace bio reads:
End Apathy began in 2005 with roots in old school hardcore punk and metal influences. The music is a sad commentary on our sick society and the problems that prevent true progress. Our first release will be a 7″ split with Definite Hate, then we will have one song on the UPRISE compilation, and our full length CD will be out later this year released by Label 56.
Here’s part of an interview with Page, done in 2010:
“The concept (behind End Apathy) was based on trying to figure out what it would take to actually accomplish positive results in society and what is holding us back. A lot of what I realized at the time was that if we could figure out how to end peoples apathetic ways it would be the start towards moving forward. Of course after that it requires discipline, strict discipline to stay the course in our sick society. So, in a sense it was view of psychology and sociology. But I didn’t want to just point the finger at what other people should do, but also I was willing to point out some of my faults on how I was holding myself back.”
Above you see a close-up of the tattoo on Wade Page’s shoulder. The number 14 means “Fourteen Words,” which is a slogan used by white supremacists: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children” or “Because the beauty of the White Aryan women must not perish from the earth.” Depending on which side of the bed neo-Nazis wake up on, we guess.

It is not known why Page targeted Sikhs. Did he think they were Muslims?
The fact that our research on the deceased shooter took us to very unsavory sites like NSM and Stormfront is extremely disturbing to us. We must go shower it off now.
