Activists have found a local tie with the gunman who opened fire at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, killing six, Sunday.
Today, a volunteer human-rights group called Responsible for Equality And Liberty (REAL) linked the gunman, Wade Michael Page, and his band, “End Apathy,” to Stormfront, a white supremacist website run by a West Palm Beach man.
Don Black has been running Stormfront from his home since about 1995, records show. The site is a forum with posts varying from the foundations for white nationalism to health and fitness.
The website greets visitors with this message:
“We are a community of White Nationalists. There are thousands of organizations promoting the interests, values and heritage of non-Whites. We promote ours. You are welcome to browse our seven million posts, but you must register before you can post to any forum except those designated as open to guests.”
Jeffrey Imm, head of REAL, said today that someone based in Milwaukee using the name “End Apathy” began posting on the Stormfront website in February 2008. Additionally, appearances by Page’s band were promoted on the Stormfront site, including a white supremacist gathering in March 2012 in Richmond, Va.
Black could not be reached via telephone earlier this afternoon.
Here is the link to the forum post promoting the band’s appearance.
