Y’know, there was a time when Viking reavers from what we now think of as Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, and even as far east as Finland, were considered to be the terror and bane of Christendom. The men who boarded Viking longships with dragon-heads for masts sported huge flowing beards, horned helmets, round shields, large broadswords, and a distinct lack of appreciation for weakness, cowardice, or homosexual nonsense.
Those men would routinely land in and around Christian territories throughout northern and western Europe during the warm summer months to kill, maim, burn, rape, loot, pillage, and generally do unspeakably horrible things to those that they considered weaker than themselves.
Their pagan burial rituals involved ritualised rape and human sacrifice of the nastiest kinds, in order to see their chieftains off to Valhalla in the grandest style possible. Their myths and legends revolved around gods and giants locked in eternal struggle with Mankind caught in the middle, and their end-times prophecies were, and remain, easily the most badass set of eschatological predictions ever made. Heck, the prophecies involved in the legends of Ragnarok make even the stuff toward the end of the Book of Revelation seem tame and boring by comparison.
I mean, any end-times prophecy that claims that the king of all of the gods will be swallowed whole by a wolf so huge that its upper jaw rakes the sky and its lower jaw furrows the ground, only for that same wolf to be quite literally torn apart at the hands of the king’s son, followed by all of creation burning from the flames of a sword swung by the oldest and most powerful of all of the fire giants before sinking into the sea until nothing remains but the vast yawning eternal emptiness of Ginnungagap, is… just… BADASS.
I bring all of this up in order to remind y’all of what the Scandinavians USED to be like, once upon a time – because what you see next will make you think that they’ve all lost their spines:
That is an advert from SAS, supposedly Scandinavia’s premier airline (*eyerolls*). It was sent to me by our good friend The Male Brain, who was every bit as disgusted and outraged by it as any of us.
I actually saw it earlier on RT, where the largely sensible and stolid Russians and their Western staff noted that the ad went down, even among the Scandicucks, like a plate of cold sick garnished with pickled herring:
Suggesting Scandinavian identity doesn’t really exist was a step too far for airline SAS in its latest campaign and, as it went into damage control just hours after takeoff, the debate raged: what’s wrong with a national identity?
The Nordic airline SAS needs to go back to the drawing board after it’s “Nothing is truly Scandinavian” advertising campaign crash-landed and abandoning the naïve, insulting premise that national identities do not exist would be the perfect starting point.
What became immediately obvious from the barrage of criticism the ill-conceived idea attracted was that people were not happy with being told they should be ridden with guilt for the numerous acts of what the woke brigade frowningly call “cultural appropriation” that they previously had mistakenly associated as the building blocks of their very own national identity.
Among the more ridiculous claims, and using a rhetorical device of the ill-informed, the campaign suggests that “rumour has it“ that world famous Swedish meatballs are actually Turkish.
Why make this stuff up? Why try to shame a nation into believing that a popular dish is one they have stolen from somewhere else? It’s the cheapest, nastiest, most unpatriotic campaign imaginable.
And the fact that this was all the idea of &Co, an oh-so-self-aware Copenhagen-based agency shows the extent of self-loathing and guilt that exist in the liberal world of the creative class.
Perhaps their cack-handed attempt to declare “What is truly Scandinavian? Absolutely nothing” should have been run past their neighbors, Denmark and Sweden before they started disowning national treasures like sticky pastries, meatballs and parental leave.
As I have said before, and as I will say again and again and bloody well again until the Scandis finally see their balls drop back down, pick up their axes and swords and shields, and go on a good old-fashioned berserkergang:
If the Vikings of old could see what a bunch of spineless weak-kneed pathetic cucked-out losers their descendants have become, they would NEVER have allowed Christianity to be introduced at the point of a sword. They would have either slaughtered every last Christian missionary and convert, or fought to the last man, woman, and child to retain their old pagan ways.
I realise this takes some explaining, especially given that I, as a Christian, apparently just said that Christianity was a mistake for the Scandis.
Let me be clear about this:
Christianity is NEVER a mistake. Christianity exerts a tremendous civilising force upon peoples and nations, and that is precisely what it did whenever it was introduced in Europe.
The entire reason why the Gauls and Visigoths, who were once such feared and terrible enemies of the Roman Empire, became calm and docile citizens of that very same Empire toward the latter half of its existence, is because of Christianity. The very reason why the Merovingian and then the Carolingian kingdoms managed to maintain, and then exceed, the heights of civilisation achieved by Christianised Rome after the official end of the Empire in 476AD, is because they themselves were Christians.
When Christianity came to the fierce pagans of the Scandinavian frontiers, it was introduced largely at the point of a sword, at least at first. (There is an extremely deep and powerful anti-Christian current that runs underneath modern Scandinavian society which still longs for the old pagan ways of blood and fire. You can hear it very easily if you listen to a lot of Scandinavian pagan, black, and death metal – like I do.) But eventually, the civilising influence of Christianity won out and converted that entire northern frontier of Europe.
And for at least the first thousand years of its presence in Scandinavia, that Christian influence was a very positive thing. The rise of the very Christian, very Lutheran Swedish Empire, was definitely an impressive achievement – and it produced some of the greatest statesmen and generals the world has ever seen.
But something happened between about the time of the fall of the Swedish Empire and the modern day, which has plainly turned the Scandinavians into a bunch of spineless weenies.
What, in the name of all that is holy, could have happened to turn former Vikings into people who would welcome in hordes of Dirt Worlders and turn large parts of their own most beautiful cities into no-go zones?
Part of it has to be their interpretation of Christianity.
The Christian Gospels, as the Scandinavians see it, tell them to welcome in all refugees as neighbours, be forgiving of all abuses and sins of others, and strive for equality. This is of course a profoundly twisted and incorrect reading of Gospel and it is deeply insulting to real Christians to hear such things being touted as theologically sound and correct. But, based on the evidence, that does appear to be what they think.
And that is before we get to the influence of Calvinism, which says that God controls everything – thereby plainly misunderstanding what it means to be sovereign – and the extreme psychological trauma inflicted by WWII.
Without going into much by way of further details, it is clear that the profoundly masculinising aspects of the Christian Gospels have simply been discarded in Scandinavia. To be sure, there is some evidence that both Christian and pagan masculine leadership is surging through underground movements in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and even to some small extent Iceland. But there is a LOT of work for them to do.
As for the SAS advert that sparked off this article in the first place – well, you’ll be delighted to know that the Scandicucks got the message, because the ad absolutely BOMBED.
It went over so badly, in fact, that SAS had to pull the advert, twice.
The reason why is very simple: you can push people only so far by downplaying and selling out and even outright insulting their national identities. Eventually, people will push back – even people as supine and cucked-out as the Scandis.
Make no mistake, it is a very good thing that the Scandinavian peoples are pushing back, hard, against attempts to devalue their national histories and identities. The world is a much better place when national identities are proudly asserted and maintained. Attempts to subsume nations into bland, mushy, inoffensive agglomerations without borders or traditions ALWAYS backfire, and ALWAYS lead to conflict and war.
Better by far that the pushing-back should happen peacefully over YouTube videos and at the ballot box, than through firestorms and hails of bullets.
Unfortunately, the time window to avoid outright brutal war is shrinking, very quickly. Already, the Scandinavians are pushing back very hard against their governing elite’s attempts to destroy their countries – and the elites are terrified of it. They are doing their level best to lock the nationalist Right and Left out of power in those countries.
If you want an idea of what will happen if they don’t reverse course, fast, then just take a look at the Spanish Civil War.
I’ll leave you with two pictures that explain quite easily exactly how far gone the Scandis are – and what they could come back to, if only they had the sense that God gave honey badgers:
