“Odinists worship ancient Norse gods such as Thor and Odin. They typically wear pendants of Thor’s hammer around their necks and meet for rituals in the woods, where they drink mead from a communal horn, read ancient poetry and occasionally slaughter animals in sacrifice to the gods.” It sounds like a scene out of Game of Thrones, or just a bad joke. But the renaissance of Odinism is anything but funny. Here’s the always excellent Reveal on how an ancient Nordic religion is inspiring white supremacist jihad. “Today’s racist Odinists say it is the only pure religion for white people, one not ‘mongrelized’ by the Jewish prophet Jesus. They see themselves as warriors, ready to reclaim America for the white race and fight against a white genocide, driven by Jews, that has left the greatest country on Earth in tatters.”
