ADL Apologizes To Hatebreed

Just thought you all might find this interesting. We will see how long it takes for them to get removed from this article.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/08/opinio...rticle_sidebar

"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, Hatebreed, Hate Crime, Jew Slaughter and White Terror, among others."


Somehow CNN's moronic author, Lonnie Nasatir, included Hatebreed in this list. Do some research, idiot. And this is how the media constantly shits all over legitimate heavy metal.

Is this about that shooting in Wisconsin? I remember glancing at something on CNN and it saying something about him being in a white power hardcore band called "End Apathy" or something.

That is what it is about. Somehow the author assumed because the name Hatebreed sounds "hate-ish", and did no research, that it was OK to just defame them.

I wonder where they even got the idea that Hatebreed was white power or whatever.

After a bit of googling...apparently they've been getting lumped in with that category for years.

Calling Hatebreed a white power band is easily one of the most ignorant things i've ever read from a misinformed critic.

Idiotic since every single time I've seen Hatebreed headline they've had bands with members of pretty much every race imaginable

What's even worse is, the author, Lonnie Nasatir, is actually DIRECTOR of the Anti-Defamation League. Wow.

It has now been removed from the article after Twitter insanity spewed at CNN. Still no apology.
