It's not hard to google examples where the ADL / members of ADL have cried wolf much to the detriment of their cause. It's also not difficult to google examples of the organization making very positive contributions.

I would encourage people who are unfamiliar with the organization to read the entirety of the wiki on it and do some homework.

Google "Hatebreed ADL" and this thread is 4th on the results; 2nd page (after a slew of CNN links), with "Hatebreed White Power". What you all have posted has made you part of a much bigger conversation, even if it is a matter of setting the record straight in our little part of the metal community.

Shameful on all counts, specially since I find Hatebreed to perpetuate nothing but positivity and inspiration to anyone who listens to them. Also had the pleasure of meeting three of them and they were more than willing to hang out with fans. I think Hatebreed handled the situation well, very professional, making sure CNN are seen as being totally in-professional.

You're right. I can Google both, but there should never be a case where a league against defamation, or any member of it, is committing the very thing they are preaching against. People forgive mistakes when they are honest mistakes, but there is nothing worse than preaching against something and then doing that exact thing. If you do that, even once, no one can ever believe you again.

In no way am I bashing or being unfair here. But if it is taken that way, obviously it is up to your judgment to remove.

CNN has apologized.

You can all now move on to the next horrible travesty of justice in the world.
