    OMG, another month, another crazed shooter! And this time he picks a temple of peaceful Sikhs. Wanted to shoot people with turbins... He may have been mad because the army kicked him out before he could get to Afghanistan. The heat wave is really bringing them out this summer. When will it end?

    OAK CREEK, WI (RNN) - Wade Michael Page, the alleged shooter who opened fire at a Sikh Temple near Milwaukee, has been identified as a neo-Nazi by the Southern Poverty Law Center --snip-- Page was a member of the band white power band End Apathy and had been a member other bands according to the SPLC. There is also evidence he attended white power concerts and events across the country. Link
    I have never heard of WTVM before so this may be an unverified and inaccurate account.

    I think we should at least consider the possibility that it was motivated by the same sort of mindset that motivates Islamists to act in a similar fashion.

    If we are to call it terrorism when an Islamist tries to kill westerners, we should apple the same standards when a westerner shoots those he mistakes for his own enemy.

    I didn't call anyone stupid. I said I always found the action of calling Dems leftists as stupid. Perhaps you can't see the difference.

    Probably he mistook the sikhs wearing turbans for talibans

    It's really sad that just seeing turbins, seems to set off negative reactions in some people. The other day we approached a truck on the freeway. There was a sign on the back about the "Sikh" religion...it being peaceful, etc. We wondered if a person with a turbin driving down a freeway, caused some people to call 911...etc.?

    Calling mainstream dems "socialists" and whatnot is, indeed, stupid. It is as stupid as calling liberals "right wing".

    The stupidity in either case lies in the dogmatism of people manifesting itself by their labeling those who inhabit a position outside a certain restricted comfort range inaccurately.

    A few more websites starting to corroborate.
    The man who allegedly murdered six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee yesterday, identified in media reports as Wade Michael Page, was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band. Southern Law Poverty Centre.
    Heidi Beirich, director of the center's intelligence project, tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that her group had been tracking Page since 2000, when he tried to purchase goods from the National Alliance, a well-known hate group. Beirich says there was "no question" Page was an ardent follower and believer in the white supremacist movement. She said her center had evidence that he attended "hate events" around the country.

    I don't think authorities are disclosing what his tattoos were at this time. The only tattoo that was disclosed was a 9/11 tattoo that the shooter had.

    Agreed. It holds true for both liberals and socialists, that they are defined not by what they claim but by how they behave.
