Hatebreed Slams CNN After Being Tagged In “White Power Rock” Article

In an article about Wade Page, the ex-soldier who brutally murdered six people at a Sikh temple in Milwaukee, WI, and his white power music relations, Anti-Defamation League director Lonnie Nasatir tagged the heavy metal band Hatebreed as one of many white supremacist bands operating today. Naturally, the Hatebreed camp didn’t take kindly to this connection. Singer Jamey Jasta took to Twitter to say, “CNN fixed that story & said they “regret the error” but it still sucks to be labeled that when we’ve NEVER been down w/ racism.” He continued by stating, “Our music & message has always been about bringing people together, not tearing them apart. Hardcore, metal, punk, all races, religions etc“.

The ADL posted an apology on Facebook.

    Jamey Jasta should just beat them up.

    “At any given time, about 100 to 150 white power bands are in the United States. The bands’ own names defiantly express feelings of hate or violence: Aggravated Assault, Angry Aryans, Attack, Definite Hate, Final Solution, Force Fed Hate, Fueled by Hate, Hate Crime, Jew Slaughter and White Terror, among others.”

    I can see the sloppiness this “journalist” littered in every paragraph. I can only imagine his frame of thinking without ‘Hate’ in their name. Let’s add ‘em to the list.” This guy should be reprimanded.
