In regards to an American University in New York claiming a statue of the Great King Ælfrǣd is too white, straight, and male.
One does not have to be the same race as you to be a shining example of quality. Also, everyone should be allowed to take pride in their race and the great people of their ancestry.
Especially if those exemplary ancestors have helped pave the way for the culture they live in and of the people who found the country.
An interesting note, as mentioned in the video below by Survive the Jive, Ælfrǣd (Wise-elf) did claim to be a descendant from the God Woden in a Euhemeristic manner. This is interesting as it shows that, despite being a Christian, having ancestral ties and connections to the ancient Saxon Gods gave him a direct folk lineage. Of course, this would go back to Hengest and Horsa the divine twins of Germanic origins before it would go back to Woden king of the Gods.
As I have mentioned in a previous article, even Thomas Jefferson who was one of the U.S Founding fathers, proposed using Hengest and Horsa as a symbol for the Union.
It could be inferred that the goal was to put America in line with the Saxon Gods as well as the Germanic progenitors.
While the Saxon’s did fight against the Viking Pagan invasion, it can be said that the Old Saxon version of Christianity wasn’t very Christian by today concepts and was more akin to a Folkish Pagan mixture of Romanesque Christianity mixed with Heathenism.
Here are a few take away lessons from this.
One people of a victimhood mindset will find oppression and inequality everywhere.
Ironically if they were to look up to the individual being honored as a source of inspiration they would rise out of the victimhood mentality and better themselves.
Secondly, Paganisms influence on the West was never extinguished fully, and that Pagans can still look upon so-called “Christian” ancestors as examples of great western men and Indo-European leaders.
Hail the Saxon ancestors!
Hail the Gods!
Hammer and Vajra!
P.S I am not making any bold claims of professional scholarship in Saxon heathenry or in British history.
I am also not addressing the anti-masculinity and anti-family statements being made about being masculine and straight….. as that is obvious trite Marxist slogans that everyone should recognize by now.
Please view the video from Survive the Jive below for full context.
The picture of Woden is from De primo Saxonum adventu dating (1099-1128).
