Comments on And Now the Screaming Starts: The League of Tana Tea Drinkers supporting domestic extremists? It's more likely than you'd think. Maybe.

There is indeed a connection to racial groups in many cases. However, the groups are using the Asatru religion for their own purposes, and not the other way around. Sort of like the way all the other religions have been corrupted throughout history.

The religion itself is basically a reconstuction of old Nordic traditions (whether accurate or not). It is some of the people who feel drawn to it which are at issue.

Screamin' Shon,

Well observed. May the righteous chops of Odin's face-melting solos be with you through all your days, my son.

Proving once again we need a Norse Religion based on mentions of Norse mythology in Heavy Metal Music and not related to any real world associations.

I don't know what the situation is like in the States, but in Europe (and especially Scandinavia), the hammer of Thor is as much of a fascist symbol these days as a Swastika (the banning of which was partly responsible for extremists turning to Norse mythology for new symbols), so I'd probably steet well away from these groups. Might be different overseas though, but with everyone of us living in a global village these days thanks to the internet, it might still be better to ignore them.

Thanks, CRwM. It would be interesting to see a full dissecting of the DHS list. The Daily Beast article was more of "Gee, there's a lot of funny stuff on here," but it'd help to know who's dangerous and who's not. Of course, it'd help security to know that, too.

Sorry CRwM--I'm not familiar with that meme and didn't know to read any of that into your title, which colored my reading of the whole rest of the post.

Curt,

I thought the reference to a what I believed to be a well known Internet gag - the X in my Y meme that spoofed a now discarded banner ad ("Pornography on my computer? It's more likely than you'd think.") - and the "maybe" reference would make it clear that the title was less serious than it sounded. That's also why I "apologize" for the title in the first line.

Kim,

I hoped to make it quite clear that your initial link was both commendable (a word I literally used to describe your post and attitude) and unconnected to the weirdness that follows. However, I will amend the story to make it clear that your link to send supporters to the Hammer Project was in no way an endorsement of any articles of the Asatru faith, whatever those might be.



Thanks, Curt, for your accurate assessment of why ...

2009-05-22T00:02:29.118-04:00

Thanks, Curt, for your accurate assessment of why I posted in the first place, and for alerting me to the post. Any more specific points of doctrine in the Asatru faith will have to be addressed by an adherent of it.



Well, you've certainly dug into this and raised so...

2009-05-21T22:50:33.084-04:00

Well, you've certainly dug into this and raised some very worthwhile points, but didja have to go with that title? If the link to GotLD you mention only turned up in the LOTTD sidebar feed (I don't see it on the main page), it turned up in my sidebar feed as well. That feed is just the form in which I maintain my links, and I try to include all LOTTD members there as a kind of courtesy if nothing else, so I wouldn't say I take much responsibility for what shows up there, including a fleeting link to the post in question.

On the subject of that post, though, I suspect this pretty much says all there is to say about Kim's intentions in posting it:

"This certainly seems like an unobjectionable goal and the Asatru faith has the right credentials (it is recognized by the IRS as a non-taxable religious organization). Gospel's to be commended for the display of cross-faith tolerance and I'm actually in total agreement with him that any religion recognized by the state should be allowed to display the symbol of its faith on the gravestones of fallen troops. It's strikes me as kind of a no brainer."

My impression is that he's not at all endorsing the religion in question itself--just its right to have its symbol on military gravestones. I'll drop him a line to see what he has to say.

Haven't got into the meat of this post yet, but the way to permalink one of those posts is to click on the timestamp, fyi. Thus.
