Gunman at Sikh temple was a Nazi, says US anti-fascist group

from Socialist Worker

The man who gunned down six people at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, yesterday was a white supremacist with a web of links to the neo-Nazi music scene, according to US anti-racists.

Officials named the gunman, who was shot dead at the scene by police, as Wade Michael Page, a 40 year old US army veteran.

He burst into the Wisconsin Sikh Temple in Milwaukee’s Oak Creek suburb on Sunday morning and opened fire with a 9mm semi-automatic pistol, killing six people.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which campaigns against the far right in the US, Page was committed white supremacist and leader of a neo-Nazi rock band called End Apathy.


  1. "End Apathy" was not his only band; he played base guitar for five or six groups in the early 2000s, all of them neo-Nazi. From what I have read, Wade Page was a wanderer who was kicked out of the US Army in the 1990s....his life sounds like it was patterned on Tom Metzger's "Lone Wolf" plan, of being willing to kill for Nazi ideals while being disengaged from the various American hate groups, so his crimes could not be connected to them.

    My condolences to the families of the victims.

  2. I might be wrong, but I thought the "Lone Wolf" concept originated in the writings of William Pierce.

    I presume "base guitar" is an intentional pun....

  3. That's ohbv /:uld. Be. Maybe a kind of politycall-unxcrrect way '' to be a real Nazi.....but beliwve me j. Are just strumntaliZed under this naZi-muic-la

    bel just cuz they ake too sickey-music foer actuall music commn to provocative aiu
