In my general area, a shirtless white guy wearing a kilt was walking around the city threatening people with a axe and knife he was carrying. He got shot by the cops and died. Apparently the cops DID try to de-escalate and use non-lethal force first, according to several witnesses, but the guy was literally going after them with the knife and axe.
Well guess what this guy’s twitter handle described him as?
A Odinist, and ‘Viking at Heart’.
And I am furious. This is what your bullshit culture does to these men, you heathens who see Valhalla as only something earned through picking useless fucking fights and dying for nothing. This is what your racist, self-centered, beating-chests theology does to men who by many accounts had a ‘recent turn to the worst’ and who before were described as ‘gentle giants’, even when troubled. You give these men hope and a sense of purpose at the expense of their lives, their souls, and you gladly gut the remaining morals of them by twisting the words of our forefathers and scripts like the Hávamál- ignoring any information or incovenuent facts that don’t glorify this narrow ass idea of what Vikings were.
Fuck you. You endanger the lives of bystanders and good people and lead men to the chopping block because you are so damn insecure about your manhood you have to glorify what never fucking existed.
Fuck your 'Viking aesthetic’. Fuck your wanking off to Valhalla. Fuck. You.
Praise to the gods that he didn’t manage to hurt anyone before he died. But you know what? That’s probably because you all told him as long as he died in a battle of some kind, no matter what it was about or how it started, he would get his glorious end.
You led a man to suicide by cop because of your inability to see anything outside your own goddamn bubbles of lies.
I hope ravens pick out all your eyes.
