Himmler vs. Spencer

Yesterday, on The Public Space show Richard Spencer told the audience after 1:23: ‘I also have taken pains not to be a shrill anti-Christian as well. I think that’s also a wrong road. The fact is that this religion has resonated with our people for some time. It is part of our history. It has resonated with millions of white people now. We need to confront it and find the good things in it. At some level the future will be about rediscovering the pagan elements in Christianity and rediscovering the Ancient World and ancient spirituality’.

Just compare Richie’s words with the words of Himmler in my new chosen image for the sticky post of this site. Before Himmler’s image I had been using an image of Luther only because it resonated with the title of the sticky post (‘nailed text’). But I always felt uncomfortable with the image of someone who, by introducing the Old Testament into the West, caused so much harm!

Riche ignores pivotal essays that explain why what he just said is erroneous; texts that appear in The Fair Race (here, here, here and here). And let’s not talk about Deschner’s translated book and the ongoing translations on this site.
