I made a blog about two months ago on the many problems of racists and the like that permeate the vast reaches of Heathenism. I need to note here, as I did in my blog, that I am speaking purely from an American stance and that I am not exactly a heathen myself.
However, under the broader term of pagan, it effects us all. Some of the bias has been seeping into some forms of paganism. I applaud the groups, especially the one linked in the blog, that are about heathens and pagans against hate.
What got me was when someone was interviewed who is a peaceful heathen, they are afraid of being out of the pagan broom closet because of heathenism's association with racists, and not because of paganism's association with Satan. This is how bad this shit has become. I am really tired of it. With the current racial tension I think it's time to start speaking up more. Even if it becomes a tad bit annoying.
Well you're certainly entitled to your opinion. Just as much as McNallen is entitled to ignore it and carry on. Just as many are entitled to not cosign it, and carry on.
To say one is 'reclaiming' it from Racism is a misguided endeavor.
Heathens don't require permission from others to do a thing. That's the very definition of being a Heathen. Even if one's ideologies are challenged, it may just further reinforce them as we're seeing with McNallen. So saying he's a POS doesn't appear to be working.
As to this tribal stuff, "You scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours".....Brilliant! I like that! It must be as old as the hills, dating back to the stone age. That's cool, really! It would be nice if everybody thought that way, at least getting repaid for what good you have done for someone else/ Not everybody sees it that way.
I don't belong to any tribe, never did, since the days of the Etruscans, and probably never will. That said, I don't have those kind of dependencies, or liabilities, or obligations, Furthermore, I have nothing against people who want to live that way, or want to obligate themselves that way.
Your way is the tribe, my way is Individualism. That's the way the deck stacks for me, to make a long story shorter.
Like I told you, "race clanism" exists in all strata of the social spectrum, especially the territorial ones, where white all of a sudden become a minority. Yes, I said a "minority" the myth about majorities being white is just a myth, period. And you know what? I don't give a rats ass about that, I've learned to live with it, and to get around it whenever and wherever I can. Do I respect people like that? FUCK NO, of course not! Do we all have, or had, white enemies in the past? Sure, plenty of them...And there will be plenty more to come!
You're right, an enemy is an enemy, an ally is an ally, regardless of their skin color. EXACTLY! Generally in life, that's the way it should be reasoned. However, if someone wants to isolate their own society or religion together based on what they perceive or personally discern their ancestors traditions to be, that excludes other races, I have no problem with that either, BECAUSE IT IS NOT ONLY WHITE PEOPLE WHO DO THAT! in fact, THAT KIND OF TACTIC IS M0RE PRONE TO BE EMPLOYED BY RACES OTHER THAN WHITE PEOPLE. Once you get out of your own back yard, my friend, you'll begin to see the forest from the fucking trees!
The Mesopotamians, Chinese, Mongolians, Huns, Egyptians, Polynesians, Africans, Muslim Arabs, Indigenous Meso Americans, and North Americans, WERE NOT WHITE! What kind of world do you live in?
That is the reason why you should be careful with criticizing white people who do the same thing! This is human nature we are talking about, not some idealist pie in the sky, personal customized way of viewing the world. What goes around, comes around! If we can do it, they can do it. If they can do it, we can do it. That is my whole fucking point!
Heathenism does not need to be the exception. Race was not a factor until heathen people began to mix with other people of other races. In the old days, race mingling probably would not have gone over too well. But we are in a new age, and race divisions are as common as the common cold. This will not only end soon, it will NEVER end. Because like I told you, and as McNallen may be suggesting, that genetics does indeed play a role in the social interaction of people. That is not even debatable, it is a undisputable fact! Who likes it, and who doesn't, tough shit, who doesn't like it!
Why should heathens be the exception? They can be, if YOU want them to be. Obviously, not all heathens, numbers untold, see it that way. It doesn't take a neo Nazi to see it that way. Who wrote the rule book that ALL Heathens need to follow?
Did the Norse follow the same path as the Germanics? I doubt it...Did the Britts, Irish, or the Scotts roll out the red carpet, while they were being invaded and plundered by the Vickings or the Icelanders? They probably did not appreciate that! But that is the way the stones always rolled in their world, and everybody else's world, since time indefinate, and that is the way it is always going to be. Now, you can have your opinions, you can have your ideals, wishes, and hopes, and you can have your grievances, we all do, that is just human nature!
I follow a path where there are these arrogant, narcissitic bastards telling people, this is all about US, and our fearless leader, our fearless leader says this, and if you don't understand, then you can't read and write, or think for yourself! So go jump in a river! And fuck everybody else and their opinions.
So, I'm used to that kind of shit!
In what way would he be impeding on another person's freedom?
What is he doing? No one has a right to your living room.
