(UPDATED) Burn the Lies: CNN Calls Hatebreed a "White Power" Act

If you would have told me 15 years ago that CNN and Hatebreed would be butting heads, I wouldn't have believed you, but that's where we are in 2012.

This week, in the wake of Sunday's tragic Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, news outlets reported that gunman, Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran, was also a White Power skinhead and member of various white trash racist hardcore bands, in addition to being a coward who shoots and kills people in their place of worship.

Page manned up and put a bullet in his head before he could get arrested. What about all that courage and resolve all those bands sing/talk about? Meh.
