Not THOSE Runes

A moment, if you don’t mind.

We are at the beginning of a new era. The balance has shifted and we’ve entered an age of positive change and growth.

So let me be crystal clear:

We do not support white supremacy or fascism here.

I do not support the would-be neo-nazis or any who would take an ancient and impressive culture and appropriate it for their own twisted, evil purposes. It’s offensive and disrespectful, as it is with any cultural appropriation. And it’s not from simple ignorance, it’s intentional.

So please, remember that there are many who may display runes or Norse symbols like Mjolnir or the Volknut who do so out of respect for the original ancient traditions or neo-pagan Heathenry. How will you know who’s who? Simple. Look for other symbols of hate. The old Norse were incredibly inclusive and did not discriminate based on ethnicity, color, sex or gender identity, area of origin, yada yada yada.

The Germanic tribes – those who became the Norse – are part of my ancestry. Fascists and nationalists are not. Nor are they part of this group, and I intend to keep it that way.

Wishing you the best blessings,
