All of us have watched TV commercials in which a truck is leaping across a ravine, or somebody is skateboarding on the interstate; in small type at the bottom of the screen we read, "Professional driver, closed course, do not attempt!". Disclaimers are, unfortunately, a mandatory element in today's world, worded in such a way as to stave off lawsuits and other liabilities.
But disclaimers are not limited to the world of commerce. People often use them in conversations, such as when we hear comments like, "Well, personally, I like Bill but...". They are often a preface to negative contexts, serving to provide a positive contextual backdrop to what follows. Another example of this is the phrase, "Some of my best friends are +[insert racial/ethnic group designator here]". Again, it sets a positive overtone to any subsequent negative statements.
The reason I'm bringing this up at all has to do with a group called "Heathens Against Hate". It seems that every one of their members must publicly post disclaimers about their faith and any related racial perspective. This takes the form of a comment such as: "I deplore anyone who tries to use [Odinism, Asatru, etc.] as a racist tool to harass or harm non-Northern European people!"
On its face, this is the equivalent of saying, "I hate people who beat up little kids". It's a statement designed to prevent argument. Obviously, no one could oppose using one's religion as a club to repress others, right?
There's a big problem with this.
One piece concerns social normative behaviors, the things we do because they are expected of us by "society". In this case, it's a pandering tool to reinforce White guilt. It is such a pervasive bludgeon that, even when not asked, many White people leap out of their chairs to proclaim their tolerance and love of everyone not like themselves. They have been pressured into this robotic behavior by decades of anti-White propaganda spewed by the media, schools and the entertainment business. To such people, and they form the majority of White culture at this point, any suggestion that anything might be set aside for ourselves, whether religious, cultural, athletic, academic or other area, is strictly verboten, as they say in the language of the German people. All things which White people seek to keep to themselves MUST be open to all, although the reverse is never true.
This societal dissolution of anything involving White cohesiveness has gained a lot of traction, and serves to reinforce the self-destructive behaviors many Whites stupidly accept as "progressive" when referred to by the Left, although called "lunatic" when noted by realists.
The real bottom-line is, only White people, that is, White heathens, must apologize for the tenets of their faith.
Christians never apologize for having tortured and massacred thousands of heathens and pagans while destroying those same native faiths, or burning women they declared "witches", or promoting unrestricted over-population in Africa, Asia and the "hispanic" world to fill their pews and collection plates, nor (in one branch) continuing to trust a community filled with unmarried pederasts to be role models. Nor do they see any dichotomy in believing in the words of peace spouted by Jesus of Nazereth, while bombing children in Baghdad.
Muslims don't apologize for their conquest of the Iberian peninsula, nor for their subjugation of women, nor for their repression of learning, nor for their militancy which has put them at odds with everyone else they've been in contact with for hundreds of years.
And lastly, what of the Jews? What of the zionists, who've displaced two million Palestinians so they could launch a permanent base of operations? What of jewish insistence that jewishness and Judaism are synonymous, even though atheist jews are still 100% jewish? What of their relentless attacks on public religious symbols of other faiths, from the cross to the crescent to pentagrams to runes? What do we make of their statement that they are "the Chosen People" of the Yahweh god?
Over its history, the native faith of Northern Europe has NEVER been used, per se, to beat up, subjugate or conquer ANYone. Our forefathers never tried to "convert" others at the point of a sword or gun, nor did they use our faith as an instrument of victimhood or sympathy, nor proclaim it the "one true religion". It was ALWAYS recognized as a regional, tribal religion tying US to OUR gods. It was always exclusive because it was always about our racial/ethnic FAMILY. And it still is.
If Asatru or Odinism were a faith of Africa, or South America, no practitioner would ever write a disclaimer. If it were out to make money from donations, or focused on conquering the internal operational systems of its host countries, or were on a steady march to force others to "submit", it would not publish such statements.
For myself, I refuse to kowtow to the politically correct, the timid or the passive-aggressive among our Folk who persist in disclaiming our history and our genetics. Their debasement of our principles, and their conflation of White unity, pride and heritage through our faith into some equivalent of "hatred" disgusts me.
