Hatecore Music Is Called White Supremacist Recruiting Tool
Nathan Weber for The New York Times Amardeep Singh of New York came to the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, on Tuesday.
The shooting rampage by an avowed white supremacist that killed six people at a suburban Sikh Temple near here came at a time of both growth and disarray in the supremacist movement.
Wade M. Page, in a picture from a band’s MySpace page, has been identified as the man who killed six during the Sikh Temple shooting in Wisconsin.
Though data collected by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, shows that the number of ultra-right-wing militias and white power organizations has grown sharply since the election of President Obama in 2008, the movement is more decentralized and in many ways more disorganized than ever, experts and movement leaders say.
“There is plenty of frustration and defeatism in the white nationalist movement,” Don Black, director of Stormfront, the largest white nationalist online discussion forum in the world, said in an interview. Calling Mr. Obama “a symptom of the multiculturalism that has undermined our country,” Mr. Black added that “there is no preeminent organization today.”
