These people are white supremacists and pagan supremacists.
And FYI, the "14 Words" are "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children". They were coined by a pagan supremacist, as well convicted murderer and terrorist named David Lane.

Wow. Pagan fundie fight!
6/28/2011 9:15:38 AM
This has to be Poe. Though I can't deny that there are pagans with convictions just as strong as any other fundie, this looks as though it's copying half the stuff we see on FSTDT.

Go back to crying how Heimdall was a black guy in the Thor movie.

FAil(p)ric(k) would have kittens if he'd seen what Kosuke Fujishima had done to his precious Norse mythology, with his manga "Ah! My Goddess" (and the anime based on such), especially the three Norns: the ultra-sweet 'Yamato Nadeshiko'-esque Belldandy (Present); the cute, slightly bratty but mechanical genius Skuld (Future); and the hyper-hot alchemist Urd (Past).
"represent our Gods in the 'right' way", eh? But not in Japan, it seems. Good.
Fujishima-sama has done so in the right way as far as I'm concerned!

Fuck. Thankfully these nutjobs don't represent Asatru as a whole.

(facepalm) Way to make us all look bad :p Yes, Abrahamic religions suck. I resent your assessment of Wiccans and Druids though (especially given the similarities between the two and Asatru, upon inspection), but come on. Following the mythological profile of Odin, he doesn't demand your earthly loyalty or that you not tolerate other religions. Odin is always Odin, and he doesn't really give a crap if you want to worship him or not. So long as you die in a glorious enough manner to get to Valhalla and actually fight at Ragnarok, he gets you regardless. This whole "vengeful, jealous god" thing, at least on a large scale (not personal betrayal but thought crimes) seems like just a projection of the taint of Abrahamic theology onto a neat pantheon.

Asatru is not an inherently racist religion. However, the fact that its origins are in Northwestern Europe and it places a heavy emphasis on the importance of your ancestry, it tends to attract a lot of people who are racist. While there are some nuts around, most of the major Asatru organizations that exist reject racism outright.
From what I've read, I'd even go so far as to say that the lore would speak against racism. The Aesir formed an alliance with the Vanir, and even got along with some Dwarves and the occasional Jotun.

(Psst... Kuga Natsuki is trying to hitch a ride with a passing car in that picture, dunno what it has to do with Fail, unless it's talking about the massive Fail afterwards)
6/28/2011 10:36:58 AM
Woden and Thunor and all the other Aesir look askance upon your shenanigans. Well, they would if they had ever existed.
Never back down? Only if you can hide behind a keyboard first. I bet you are just like Himmler ... a weedy little bugger who faints at the sight of blood.
6/28/2011 11:28:07 AM
Wow, an Odinist fundie. Somewhere on the internet, ListenerX weeps.
6/28/2011 11:53:56 AM
I thank Jesus H. Christ that I don't have any idea what this fucktard is even talking about.
6/28/2011 11:59:39 AM
never back down infront of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Wiccans, Druids - they are SCUM
Alrighty, then I'm putting my money on the Dalai Lama for a straight Win, Place and Show bet.

More roleplaying/fantasising/historical re-enactment. Yeah I enjoyed reading Beowulf as well, but don't get carried away guys.
6/28/2011 12:27:22 PM
What's with all the scare 'quotes'?
6/28/2011 12:42:07 PM
You have to admit, if the end of the world was imminent, Ragnarok would be the apocalypse of choice.
None of the other religions' grand finales are anywhere near as good.
Plus, there's a chance I'd get to meet a Valkyrie, and I choose to believe in the slim and sexy variety as seen in Namco games and the Valkyrie Profile series rather than the fat Wagnerian type.

"Unless you can stand with honour with our Gods and the 14 Words go away and find another 'hobby'... "
I'd like to solve the puzzle, Pat. Is one of the words, "Meecrob?"
6/28/2011 1:28:21 PM
In Swedish it's "Asatro", and yes, there are quite a few racists here who have adopted asatro in order to feel more "genuinely" Swedish, or something.
We gave up our Aesir faith about a thousand years ago, so I really hope they have their genealogy, their family tree, mapped and tracked since then...

@Raised by Horses
As a Dane, I guess I just assumed that our Scandinavian names were correct, did some cross-referencing with the Swedish and Norwegian wikis (as you can see, Swede says it's Asatro in Swedish too), and came to the conclusion that "if all of Scandinavia says this about the old Norse religion, then it must be true" ;)
Looking more closely I do see that it's with u in Norwegian and I completely neglected the possibility of it being Old Norse. I stand corrected, but I will say this: Accents where accents are due! They exist for a reason and are not that hard to add.
6/28/2011 1:55:20 PM
Why are you telling me this? I got the original memo.
6/28/2011 2:10:22 PM
Oooh, a new fundie strain! Worth keeping an eye on this one...
6/28/2011 2:24:04 PM
Oh joy. White Supremacists dressing themselves up as Pagans to justify their idiocy.
@ Street Sharks
I never got this whole 'white race' thing that people like this harp on about. It almost as if they think people with the lack of a certain skin pigmentation achieved something completely seperate and above everyone else. Categorically failing to realize, I imagine, that all advancements are built on those that came before...which came from different countries.
Racism fails, me thinks.
6/28/2011 2:48:37 PM
Ah, i see we found one of these old school nutters from the 40's.
