Sikh Temple Shooter ID’s as 40 Year Old Wade Michael Page That Left 7 Dead Including the Gunman … Called Domestic Terrorism

 

The gunman responsible for yesterday’s Sikh Temple mass murder shooting has been identified as 40 year old Wade Michael Page. According to police, The attack is treated as “a domestic terrorist-type incident”. However, while the FBI is investigating whether this matter might be an act of domestic terrorism, no motive has been determined at this time.”

In an attack that the police said they were treating as “a domestic terrorist-type incident,” the gunman stalked through the temple around 10:30 a.m. Congregants ran for shelter and barricaded themselves in bathrooms and prayer halls, where they made desperate phone calls and sent anguished texts pleading for help as confusion and fear took hold. Witnesses described a scene of chaos and carnage.

Would this be considered terrorism or a hate crime? As reported at ABC News, the shootings are the work of a “white supremacist” or “skinhead.” So if the shooter, who was killed by police officers, was a skinhead or white supremacist, isn’t that the definition of a hate crime and not terrorism?

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms Special Agent Thomas Ahern said the suspect had tattoos and that authorities were investigating whether he was a “skin head or “white supremacist” as two ABC Sources said.

“It is being investigated. And what his tattoos signified is being investigated. They are all pieces of a possible puzzle to learn what was his motive in carrying out such a horrific act,” Ahern said.

      It can be both, hate crime and terrorism. Like the bombings of churches in Alabama.

      I hope, although I am not seeing hate crime listed. I hope they did this just so the FBI could take the lead.However, when Hasan did the Ft Hood shooting it was called a crime, not terrorism when it was obviously terrorism. I guess its easier to get by the PC police when the suspect is a White Supremacist vs. a Muslim.

      DOMESTIC TERRORISM

      Gunman’s tattoos lead officials to deem Sikh shooting terrorism
      August 5, 2012

      Tattoos on the body of the slain Sikh temple gunman and certain biographical details led the FBI to treat the attack at a Milwaukee-area temple as an act of domestic terrorism, officials said Sunday.

      The FBI defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

      Lawmakers Blast Administration For Calling Fort Hood Massacre ‘Workplace Violence’
      December 07, 2011

      Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation’s Armed Forces at home.

      During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

      FBI did not investigate Fort Hood shooter because of political correctness, report says
      Published July 19, 2012

      The FBI was too concerned about political correctness and did not launch an investigation into a man who was later charged with killing 13 people in a 2009 attack at the Fort Hood military installation in Texas, despite significant warning signs that he was an Islamic extremist bent on killing civilians, according to a lawmaker briefed on a new report about the terrorist attack.

      THE OFFICIAL CHICAGO ISLAMIC DOUBLE STANDARD

      EDITORIAL: Chicago values and the Fruit of Islam
      Mayor of Murdertown ignores Muslim biases
      July 26, 2012

      Excerpts

      Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel waltzed into the Chick-fil-A controversy Wednesday when he declared, “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago value. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values.” He wants to block the restaurant chain from expanding in his city because its owner made public statements in defense of traditional marriage.

      Presumably Mr. Emanuel believes that the Nation of Islam represents Chicago values. The first Jewish mayor of Chicago appears willing to overlook Mr. Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic statements, as well as his Koran-based opposition to homosexuality.

      On the same day the mayor chastised Chick-fil-A, he welcomed Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam in an effort to secure Chicago’s streets.

      The Nation of Islam also operates a restaurant in Chicago, called Salaam, located on 79th street. Salaam does not discriminate against homosexual patrons, but then again neither does Chick-fil-A. It is unclear why Mr. Emanuel would embrace stridently anti-homosexual Muslim leaders but seek to drive out a restaurant chain operated by Christians who espouse traditional family values. But that’s the Chicago way.

      THE OFFICE BOSTON ISLAMIC DOUBLE STANDARD

      Read The Letter That The Mayor Of Boston Sent To Chick-Fil-A
      Jul. 25, 2012, 12:42 PM

      Boston Mayor Thomas Menino spoke out against Chick-fil-A, promising not to let the chicken chain enter the city, after the company’s president and COO Dan Cathy made anti-gay marriage comments.

      Now, he has sent a strongly worded letter to Chick-fil-A.

      “I was angry to learn on the heels of your prejudiced statements about your search for a site to locate in Boston,” he writes. “There is no place for discrimination on Boston’s Freedom Trail and no place for your company alongside it.”

      Radical imam OK but not Chick-fil-A
      Friday, July 27, 2012

      Given his stance on Chick-fil-A, would Mayor Tom Menino grant permits to a group that has counted among its leaders a man who has repeatedly called homosexuality a “crime that must be punished” by death?

      Actually, he has done that??.?.?.?and more! Menino effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the organization, and he gave a speech at its ribbon-cutting ceremony.

      It’s the Islamic Society of Boston’s mosque, and when it comes to anti-gay sentiment, one of its early supporters makes Chick-fil-A look like the Provincetown Men’s Chorus.

      seems more a like a hate crime, though a hate crime where your “group” is the target would certainly feel like terrorism.
