Odinia in Exile… Objecting to Rape Now Considered “Hate” by Facebook

So many faces, so many victims, all White. In Jewmerica, as many as 36,000 White women are raped a year by Black men, while, statistically zero Black women are raped by White men each year (Dept. of Justice figures). 14 year-old Eva Helgetun who committed suicide after having been raped by 3 Muslim Black Somalis. If Jews had not forced anti White immigration policies upon Europe, this beautiful young girl would probably be alive.

You may have heard that the latest in the Jewish nightmare propaganda is that we should not be allowed not to date other races. This article, states in bold large font capital letters … “Racial Preferences Are Not Your Right”. That will, quite literally, be next if the Jews have their way. They intend us and our dangerously high IQs to be mixed out one way or another, so that they have no competition, and no one left who could effectively resist their totalitarian and terroristic One World Jewish Regime.

Of course the life of this young man, Marley Lion, does not matter to the 97 percent Jewish owned media. After all, according to the <a href="http://vikingalthing.org/article/quotes-holy-talmud-hell-anyone-want-expel-people/" target="_blank">Jewish religion</a>, he is sub human goyim, or cattle, here only to be used by Jews.

In a number of European nations, we have already actually reached the point where it is a crime to object to massive numbers of racially motivated assaults on Whites, or in the case of Denmark, to resist being raped. If any other ethnic group is threatened with assault, cultural annihilation, and genocide, the supporters of the monstrous Jewish regime we live in all wring their hands in feigned distress and volubly emote on cues from their Jewish masters, but we, who are most threatened of all, are told we must not utter a word against our extermination. We are not even supposed to speak against our own countries, which our forefathers built, being invaded by violent subhumans, or resist this invasion in any way.

Whites are now being fired, and threatened with such things as legal action, and the taking away of their children by the government in Jewish controlled Germany for such crimes as expressing concern about the future of their children, for instance, in the case of <a href="https://twitter.com/_AltRight_/status/692229559752757249" target="_blank">this physicist who expressed concern for the future of his children</a>.

Do you realize that if one of the little girls in the Rotherham scandal, who were repeatedly raped by non Whites while police just looked on because the police did not want to be deemed “racist”, were to say that she hates Blacks, Arabs, or Asians, that the little girl would be charged with a crime now in England, but her attackers would not be?

The Rape of Europa. Jews promote and encourage rape and other assaults on White men and Women with ponography and historical lies and then sit back and laugh.

The Rape of Europa. Jews promote and encourage rape and other assaults on White men and Women with pornography and historical lies and then sit back and laugh.

To show just how bad things have become, a European woman who tells the truth about Jewish crimes, such as Ursula Haverbeck, is thrown in prison, but Angela Merkel, a Jewish ancestry government infiltrator who is quite literally opening the gates to Semitic and Black invaders in order to destroy Germany and wider Europe, is walking around free, has not been tried or hanged for treason, and now  wants EVEN MORE censorship. If you have not already done so, wake up folks… These are OUR countries, White countries, and if we do not deal with this problem it will certainly deal with us.

This is what I would call heading in the right direction.

If you follow us, you probably are aware that virtually every time anyone posts an Odinia video or article they are either attacked or reported and banned, or both. You might also be aware that Jews are allowed to threaten me or any other European ancestry person with complete impunity on these very same social networks.  I have been banned for 30 days on so many occasions in the last year that I suspect I am banned more than I am unbanned, and today I have been banned yet again.

Grateful for being raped by a Haitian... Jewish woman, Amanda Kijera, who is setting the tone for us goyim in an article in which she claims to have been raped by a Haitian Black and demonstrates for us the reaction we are supposed to have... that it is ok because Whites are "racist". Never mind that she is not White, that Jews owned the lion's share of the African slave trade, or that at the height of slavery less than 2 % of Whites were slave owners... When this lowlife supposedly was raped, it was the fault of Whites. "Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are. Because women–and particularly women of color–are forced to bear the brunt of the Black male response to the Black male plight, the international community and those nations who have benefited from the oppression of colonized peoples have a responsibility to provide women with the protection that they need. The United Nations, western women’s organizations and the Haitian government must immediately provide women in Haiti with the funding that they need to build domestic violence and rape crisis centers. Stop dividing Black families by distributing solely to women, which only exaggerates male resentment and frustration in Haiti. Provide both women and men with job training programs that would allow for self-sufficiency as opposed to continued dependency on whites. Lastly, admit that the issue of racial integration might still need addressing on an international level, and then find a way to address it! I went to Haiti after the earthquake to empower Haitians to self-sufficiency. I went to remind them of the many great contributions that Afro-descendants have made to this world, and of their amazing resilience and strength as a people. Not once did I envision myself becoming a receptacle for a Black man’s rage at the white world, but that is what I became. While I take issue with my brother’s behavior, I’m grateful for the experience."

Why was I banned, you might ask? Have I used racial epithets or even uncouth language on the internet, ever? No… Have I violated any Facebook rules as Jews do daily, such as, for instance, the Jew who was posting pictures of what he called “Muzzies” praying and was talking about how they should be shot in the back of the head when he trying to incite Europeans to fight with the non Whites that the Jews themselves have introduced into our countries? Did I even so much as threaten back the Jew who suggested that I should be run over with a bulldozer like Rachel Corrie? No, I have not…. but I do not worship Jew “gods” and I am against White genocide, and that is not allowed on Facebook apparently.

White Children should be allowed to grow up safely in their own countries and the only way that is going to happen if there are no non Whites in any of our countries. Love your race and dare to think tribally...

My banned and deleted comment which resulted in my being censored for 30 days was written on an article about Facebook’s new initiative to silence those it calls “extremists”, “xenophobes”, and “haters”, but who are actually just European ancestry people in favor of maintaining our own national sovereignty and not being used as slaves and exterminated by Jews, which of course is considered “anti-Semitic”. Amazingly, and somewhat hilariously, this latest chapter in Facebook’s appalling record of truly extremist ongoing anti White harassment, is called, of all things, “Civil Courage“. They feature a movie by, “Surprise, Surprise!” a Jewish girl named Erin Saltman, whom they cozily refer to as “Doctor Erin”, and who, in true Marxist fashion, suggests that family members such as “mothers”, and “religious leaders”, presumably Christian ones, act against us evil “xenophobes” who do not intend to allow Jews to genocide us and racially replace us in our own nations. Sorry Erin, but as an Odinist, I am definitely one of those who defend my race,  you know, the “hate preachers” you talk about.

This is not about hate, it's about having love for one's own people, and anyone who does not hate those degrading, destroying, and murdering our folk, most assuredly does not love them.

This is not about hate, it’s about having love for one’s own people, and anyone who does not hate those degrading, destroying, and murdering our folk, most assuredly does not love them.

Strangely, Facebook and its new Marxist initiative is doing nothing to counter Jewish extremism…! Real Hate groups, such as the SPLC, which seek to eliminate native European religious symbols, operate with a completely free reign. If there were an organization out there trying to ban crosses would that be considered a hate group? Facebook is not banning rabbis for posting a Jewish star and mentioning their god,  as they did when I posted a swastika in honor of one of our European Gods to whom it is sacred. The  only concern here is terroristically silencing Whites who object to Jewish led ethnic cleansing of Whites by forced mass immigration. Everyone except White Europeans has a “voice” and all of this is in violation of accommodation discrimination law, and also of international laws against ethnic genocide.

Isn't it amusing how they pretend to be victims in regard to the nations they themselves have invaded, infiltrated, parasited, and destroyed? Guess who is next on the list? Think "being nice" to Jews is going to stop them from carrying out the final genocide they have planned and worked towards for generations... that of our entire race?

Facebook spokeswoman, Sheryl Sandberg made the pronouncement that what she calls ‘hate speech”, but is actually just telling the truth about Jewish crimes against Europeans, “has no place in our societies”. By this she means defending our tribe is not allowed in societies controlled by Jews. Of course, Sandberg mentions the refugee influx which we are not allowed to object to, because this is the main weapon of White genocide at the moment.  One wonders why Israel is not accepting all these “refugees”?


With Open Gates The forced collective suicide… by eternalpatriot

It is notable that one person associated with Sandberg in this article is Anetta Kahane, whose aim to genocide Whites could not be more clear. This is what amounts to a skeleton crew of criminals, orchestrating our own extermination in plain sight, and being funded in doing so mostly by their victims, since they control our countries, not that cost is an issue when one’s tribe prints its own money in a “federal bank” which is not overseen by the US government in any way. The fact is, we are being enslaved by an ethnically cohesive tribe of criminals feeding off of us.

Eretz Israel or greater Israel... I first learnt about this when I came across hundreds of "American" Jews raving about how we must invade the Kingdom of Jordan so they could make it

Eretz Israel or greater Israel… I first learnt about this when I came across hundreds of “American” Jews raving about how we must invade the Kingdom of Jordan so they could make it part of Israel. When I pointed out that Jordan was a sovereign nation that had not done anything to anyone, and that it was not in our national interests to invade it so Israel could have it, I was threatened by a Jew who told me the IDF would kill me. “Eretz Israel” is not going to stop with the red lines…unless we make it stop…

And so, according to Jews, those of us who love our own culture and people and wish to continue to exist, and who resist the financial slavery they have imposed upon us or who have the temerity to be opposed to Whites being racially replaced by design in our own countries by Jewish programs meant to displace and kill us are “haters”. Now that Jews have Palestine and call it Israel, they want to use us, our resources, and our military to expand what they call Eretz Israel, or greater Israel, into Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, etc.. until it encompasses the whole world.. The other Semites and the Blacks that they displace have to go somewhere. What could be better than destroying European countries by using non Whites as biological weapons against us? After all, that is working so well in America. Imagine how fun it is for them to see all their victims, including their main target, us, distracted and tilting at windmills as in a modern Crusade, and overlooking who our REAL enemy is.

The Real Plan... A Jewish controlled world with Jewis reigning over a mixed race slave race and White European tribes GONE.

So why exactly was I removed this time? Read the screenshot below and see if you think a Jew would be deleted from social media for being against a genocide of Jews led by Whites or against Jewish girls being raped by Blacks in Israel.. Ah, but there are two different sets of rules for Jews and for European ancestry people on Facebook and all social media.  Jews and other non-Whites can say anything they like, and openly incite violence against us and gloat about killing us, while we are supposed to just quietly die, and not fight back, or even mention the fact that Jews are attempting to kill us by racially replacing us in our own countries with “refugees”.

Latest attack by the Facebook ZOG trolls. When will our people see that we are, in fact, enslaved by this monstrous tribe of psychopaths, and do something SERIOUS about it? Very soon, I hope. The good news is that this comment was very popular, which is why they deleted it, and I am happy to say that in general, the comments were all very much against the selective suppression of free speech. It would seem that the typical Jewish double standard of "free speech" for non Whites and repression of our speech has become so glaringly obvious that people are really beginning to notice..

Here are some of our articles about the extreme hypocrisy and double standards involved in this Jew-centric censorship and how Zionist Jews are suppressing free speech in 17 countries so far, to the extent that authors are being arrested and jailed for years for telling the truth about historical facts which counter the self serving criminal lies of the Jews. The most disgusting case recently was an 87 year old woman named Ursula Haverbeck being sent to prison for telling the truth about the Holohoax, which is alluded to near the end of the first article..

The real leader of Germany, Ursula Haverbeck, who has the courage to speak the truth.

WHAT ARE VALUES?

Now, unbelievably, we have a new case that is giving the case of Ursula Haverbeck some competition, the case of a  young teenage Danish girl who was attacked and her trousers ripped off.  She used pepper pray against her attacker and she is now being charged with a criminal offense for having used a weapon to prevent being raped. Meanwhile, the race of “the English speaking man” who attacked her not being charged with anything and it is not even clear that there has been any attempt to detain him. The 97 percent Jewish owned media strangely makes no mention of his race.

I suspect the "English speaking man" looks something like this.

Right now I am working on a project having to do with Scottish poetry, but even that is not going to be allowed if Jews can help it. After all, if we exist and have a culture, taking over our countries and racially replacing us is genocide, but if there is no such thing as race and we never existed, like the Palestinians, Jews have not done anything wrong. After all, they are the Self-Chosen people… and we are just supposed to obey them and their “god” and walk right over that cliff, allowing them to assault our people with impunity meanwhile, so as not to be called “racists”.

A crime to be against the genocide of one's own race by Jews? Another Recent Article.. "Rape Refugees and Feminism or Real White Men and Meritocracy… A Call for the Protection of our People…"

I don’t control the government, the media, or the judicial system, or the illegal, unconstitutional, un-audited FED as the Jews do, but one thing I always strive to do is to is give back whatever they give to me times ten. Please help me do this by posting this or one of the other articles linked here. It is important that people know what is going on, that they know who the author of the effort to inflict hordes of savages upon us is, and that we get the word out. Once people know, we have a fighting chance. If we know who our enemy is, we can do something about it.

I wonder if this woman, Amanda Blackburn, a pregnant mother who was raped and killed by Blacks, resisted and scratched them? If the Jews had their way, she would be dug up and charged with a crime.

ODINIA VS. ISRAEL … BLACKS EXPELLED FROM ISRAEL, BUT WE EUROPEANS ARE EXPECTED TO DESTROY OUR FOLK…

Tribal Survival… Anti-Racist Hitler and an Introduction to White Genocide by Immigration

Speaking of enemies, who is Sheryl Sandberg, who made the pronouncement that, “We will delete hate speech towards refugees”  which amounts to a demand that there be no opposition to a forced Jewish orchestrated genocide of Europeans? Well, let’s just say that there are some people who like to wear contact lenses with vertical eye slits to attend sci fi conventions, and that there are others who would not really need them, and who probably  wear contact lenses to make their irises look round instead, and that she is in the second category. I’m told that she actually wanted to ban the word bossy. I don’t know if its true or not, but this would not surprise me in the least.

Clearly we "goyim" sheeple slaves need to be "educated" by your tribe of self- glorified baby murdering sand n@ggers. .How could I have been less offensive, Sheryl? Instead of calling you a "Jewish woman" should I perhaps have called you a "hate-filled hypocritical parasite", or a "Jewish troll whore" or some such thing? Please instruct us, Sheryl! We savages who created all civilization, apparently need the guidance of criminals who never created at thing, but can only survive by feeding off of and destroying us.

Don’t think that there is nothing that can be done about this and give up. Jews control the media, the justice system, and our governments and banking, and much of our military as well, but this will become harder for them to do as people wake up. I believe I can personally take credit for writing and calling so many politicians and judicial authorities to protest our first American “Holocaust denial” case, the Lenio case, that those particular charges were dropped, but they will try again. For men there are other even more important options for resistance, such as those used by freedom fighters throughout history. One interesting essay on this topic is called “Leaderless Resistance”.

Happy Hogmanay!

It is not really the Odinist New Year today, we had that a little earlier, and are still in the midst of our 12 Nights of the Yule until 12th Night itself, and 3 Gods Day, when we shall exchange presents (!) but I wanted to offer good wishes to all our pro European folk and wish everyone a joyous New Year!

Hail our Ancestors, our Tribe, our Future!

Hail our Ancestors, our Tribe, our Future!

Despite us lowly Scandinavians and other Europeans, “not having any culture” (according to Jewish academics), 75 thousand revellers attended the Hogmanay New Year’s Festival in Edinburgh tonight, 1o, 000 of them dressed as Vikings, and carrying torches in riotous procession down the street.  As our society begins to be illuminated with the truth, despite the Jewish stranglehold on the media,  our Pagan European ways are coming back to our world in a big way… and our folk are beginning to stand up straighter and taller, with a devil-may care grin on their faces, so much so that the torches of those who honor our Heathen Celtic and Norse customs now set the streets of Edinburgh ablaze with light.

The streets of Edinburgh tonight, ablaze with Viking torches. A good start…

The streets of Edinburgh tonight, ablaze with Viking torches. A good start…

Far from being culture-less people who are “jealous” of the savages invading our countries thanks to Jewish-led “immigration, as European- haters such as Mona Sahlin suggest, we yet have an incredible wealth of traditions that have not been extinguished, not even by all the truly envious attempts to destroy them by those who have never created anything.

A token of things to come?

A token of things to come?

Tonight, throughout Scotland, the Scottish Isles, and the Isle of Man especially, a turning back of the clock to a remembrance of our past, and what could be our future, is happening. We can make that future real, we can preserve our Heathen European heritage and live freely again, if we just have the courage to fight. If  you ask me if our people and culture are worth saving, my answer is “Aye”!

The magic of our religion and our tribe can still be glimpsed through the darkness, from times so ancient that they can barely be imagined, it endures even now.

The magic of our religion and our tribe can still be glimpsed through the darkness, from times so ancient that they can barely be imagined, it endures even now.

So threatening was the Yule to those who seek to destroy us by taking away our religion and identity, that celebrating it was banned in Scotland, even in the superficially  judified form of “Christmas”, for some 400 years, starting from the end of the 17th century to the 1950s. Samhain was, if possible, even more reviled and outlawed. Whenever European folk try to revive or keep the European customs inherent in the Yule, or Samhain, one Christian sect or another will seek to ban these supposedly evil Pagan ways, just as Messianic Jews are currently trying to do with the new specifically anti-European sects they are creating in an attempt to take the last traces of European content out of Christianity. Listen to the Renegade Broadcasting interview about bringing the Soul back into Souling or read  “THE GRINCH AND THE REBIRTH OF THE SPIRIT OF THE JUL” to get some idea of just how monstrous these efforts are.

Because they were forced to work through our Odinist holidays, until the 1950s,  the Scots could not gather for their Yuletide celebrations and had to wait until the New Year, whose date also has been altered, to practice their sacred customs and exchange presents, and these parties  came to be known as hogmanays.  Due to Judeo-Christian persecution,  some Samhain and Yuletide customs changed to different dates.

Animal hide wrapped around staffs and ignited made fine torches, and such torches are traditionally meant to have healing properties, and are thought to ward off evil. They  also are known as Hogmanay. There are records of people dressed in animal hides running around villages and being chased and hit by sticks, a custom which resembles very old fertility customs I have read about elsewhere in ancient sources, customs which existed as far afield as ancient Sardinia, and throughout Europe, and Eastern Europe. I believe these were meant not just to impart fertility to people but to wake up Nature from its slumber and bring about the coming of Spring.

During the festival of Ursul in Romania, between the Yule and New Year's holiday, homage is still paid to the beliefs of the ancient Heathen Geto-Dacians, in a ceremony in which men dressed up as bears, a sacred animal believed to have a strong protective force, dance to chase away evil spirits.

On the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, to this day, some Hogmanay traditions which I think must be derived from early Samhain festivals, which you can learn more about in my Odinist video rede and blot, Sacred Spirits of Samhain, still exist and are practiced by the local inhabitants.. These Hebridean rituals involve young men and boys forming themselves into opposing war groups.  The leader of each band wears a sheep skin, and one of his men holds a sack.  The bands move through the villages, from house to house, reciting Gaelic rhymes, and in return, are given bannocks (fruit buns) for their sack before moving on to the next house. This clearly is an instance of the  Samhain custom of souling.

In the Highlands, the Hogmanay festival appears to be connected with an ancient Heathen custom of asking for a “saining”, or blessing, from our Ancestors for our families, tribe, and livestock. To this day, on New Year’s morning,  some villagers in Scotland, still sprinkle holy water taken from a river that is believed to have  been crossed by both the living and the dead, and this blessed water is drunk, and sprinkled on family members, animals, and in the beds of those seeking good fortune in the coming year. Juniper branches are then set alight and carried throughout the houses to purify the inhabitants and protect them from harm. Then, the windows of the houses are opened to let in fresh cold air to welcome the New Year, and this is followed by a draft of whiskey given by the lady of each house to all, and a sumptuous New Year’s breakfast.

Hogmanay has our connection to our past and present tribe woven into it and like all European Heathen customs, acts as a wellspring of our identity.

First-footing is a particularly wide-spread Scottish Heathen custom which has also survived the imposition of  Christianity, one which begins with a series of visits to homes by friends and neighbors, and it appears that this ceremony once involved marching men, since once the male first-footers are said to have carried a decorated herring in procession. Another still remembered custom involved men marching in torchlight procession to the top of the Lomond Hills before midnight. The first visitor to cross the threshold of a home after the stroke of  midnight on New Year’s Eve is thought to set the fortune of the coming year, and if he is a handsome man, so much the better. Both visitors and guests are given special gifts, such as salt, coal, shortbread, a rich fruit cake known as “Black Bun”, or whisky, and each gift is intended to impart different kinds of luck to those they are given to, and there is feasting and merriment throughout the night..

These Nutcracker Christmas Crackers, which we shall open on this 12th Night, the Night before 3 Gods' Day, at Freyja Hof, are part of a very ancient Pagan European tradition similar to the divination games of Samhain, Christmas Eve, and First Footing. They hail from a time when virtually all people believed in our innate connection with our Ancestors and Nature, and they still remain, as do our beliefs, deeply embedded in our culture. Inside the crackers, which break open with a crackling sound like firecrackers, are charms which are meant to give us messages and luck in the coming year. Photo: Seana Fenner

On this night, in Stonehaven, Scotland, the fireball swingers still mimic the movement of the Sun in a parade, then symbolically throw their fireballs, which are on the ends of long metal poles, back into the Sea, from which the Sun rises. In a sense, they become the Sun as they march, swinging their fireball staves, because at times they hurl the torches around so quickly that they are completely enveloped in the flames, and appear to be fireballs themselves.

Soon, in the Shetland Isles, during the festival of Up Helly Aa, a Viking longship will be set alight to revel in the glory of our High Ones, and the greatness of their deeds and spirits. Long may these customs, so dear to the hearts of our Ancestors, survive, and may we survive along with them!

For those who are interested in knowing more about native European New Year’s customs, not long ago, I wrote an article about our Odinist New Year’s rituals, which we still practice, called “SAMHAIN MYSTERIES OF NERTHUS AND NJORD, A SURVIVING HEBRIDEAN NEW YEAR RITUAL…” Another  New Year’s article you might enjoy is “An Odinist New Year’s Remembrance for our Warriors…Independence and Sword Dancing…

May our Gods bless our folk greatly in the coming year…

Waes Hael!

Hail our great Warriors, for they are not dead, but only sleeping. Soon the divine flame shall become so bright that they shall awaken...
