Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!

I’m writing this post in reponse to certain emails and messages that I’ve gotten over time related to an all but too common misinterpretation of norse culture.

In many places, Europe and elsewhere, there is a hypersensitivity to things that people wrongly associate with unhealthy nationalism. Sometimes when people see that I wear a thor’s hammer around my neck or that I’m into norse mythology and folklore – or that I’m pagan – they jump to conclusions. Frankly, it is infuriating and saddening. The song I linked above speaks for itself.

Symbols and culture, not just the Norse, have been stolen and distorted. Being a pagan and passionate about the Viking age culture and history does not make people Nazis and anyone who believes that should pull their heads out of their fucking asses.

The lyrics:

You who think the hue of your hide means you are to blame
And your father’s misdeeds are his son’s to carry in shame
Not mine I’ll take no part
You can shove the sins of the your father where no light may pass
And kiss my Scandinavian ass

Pages of the past
How long will they last?
A lie lost in the legacy of fools left us this parody unsurpassed
Pages of the past
How long will they last?
The shadow of the Swastika by fools’ fears now for far too long has been cast

You who think the hue of your hide means you get to blame
The black for your own faults and so bring humanity shame
Make sure you count me out of the ranks of your inbred morons
With your sewer gas and kiss my Scandinavian ass
