In a poem from the Icelandic Edda, the Norse god Thor wakes up without his hammer. He has lost his phallus. A giant named Thrym, whose name means uproar, has taken it. He won’t bring the hammer back unless the fair-haired Freya, Odin’s wife, marries him. But the otherwise promiscuous goddess refuses the ugly troll; her anger sends an earthquake through Asgard.
Instead, Thor and Loki decide to dress up as Freya and her bridesmaid. They fool the giant, but barely. Once Thrym retrieves the hammer to hallow the bride—with the blessings of Vár—a fiery-eyed Thor smashes him to death, kills the giant’s sister, and then exterminates the entire race of giants, saving Asgard.
This 14th-century Icelandic poem, Thrym’s Lay, can be traced back to a 10th-century Norwegian origin, perhaps it was authored by Þjóðólfr ór Hvini in a time of heathen insurgence against the Catholic conqueror. It is around this time that archaeological evidence shows Nordic peoples began wearing the phallic hammer amulet.
The Icelandic Thor’s hammer looks like a Christian cross turned upside down. The heathens were giving Catholics the finger, quite literally. We know what happened next. The Catholics won, the heathens lost. It would take another five centuries before Martin Luther instigated the Protestant Reformation that ended Catholic universalism in Europe.
But the poem’s contents may be based on a much older, oral tradition spread around North-Western Europe via the North Sea. One or two lines from the poem appear to have a 7th-century origin. Could the chronology of events described in Thrym’s Lay refer to a historical event, perhaps the events leading up to the Battle of the Teutoburg forest?
In the poem, Thor loses his masculinity and leaves Asgard defenseless. The same thing happened between 50 B.C. and 20 AD when the Germanic tribes were forced to pay young men as tributes to the Roman oppressor to serve as mercenaries. The loss of men left their Asgard, the gardens of the Æsir or the agricultural lands of the Germanic peoples, unguarded.
The poem describes a council of such importance that the female deities were allowed to attend it. Perhaps the threat of a foreign conquest?
According to Roman sources, around the year 15 AD, a young 16-year-old girl known as Thousnelda was to be married off by her father, Segestes. A true progressive, Segestes praised peace with the Romans, because the slavery of his people would profit him personally. When Thousnelda was 25 and pregnant, Segestes would sell her into slavery in exchange for a home in Gaul.
It seems plausible, then, that young Thousnelda, a fair-haired Germanic girl of noble birth, was to be married off to a Roman officer in exchange for peace. It was customary among Germanic peoples to forge peace by marrying the noble daughter of one tribe to the prince of another. The most important Roman around the time of the Battle was general Varus.
Was Thousnelda given to Roman general Varus, a fifty-four-year-old, fat, lazy man, according to a contemporary historian? The girl’s anger must have sent an earthquake through Asgard indeed.
At either Varus’s summer or his winter encampment, somewhere along the Rhine and the Weser rivers in North-Western Germany, Thousnelda would have met her future savior and husband, a young man known as Arminius. He was twenty-three years old at the time. For at least two more years, Arminius would serve the Romans well and rise through their ranks to become a lesser Roman nobleman, one of only a handful living in the North.
Like Thor in the poem, Arminius dressed up as a “woman” to get close to the ugly general, namely in Roman battledress. In fact, a recurrent theme in Nordic literature of Odin (e.g, in Adam van Bremen’s chronicles) or of Thor dressing up as a woman may have nothing to do with transgenderism, but rather with the historical reality of “joining the Romans”, namely dressing up as a Roman soldier.
From the Germanic perspective, Roman soldiers must have appeared feminine. Roman battledress, tunic or toga must have looked ridiculous to the traditionally pants-wearing Germans. Roman soldiers were also several inches shorter than average Germanic men, let alone the Northern fighting males who could be over six feet tall, even then. Romans were clean-shaven; Germanic men grew beards.
(If the poem’s Thor has lost his masculinity and dresses up as a bride, perhaps he has joined the Romans?)
Despite Arminius’ stellar career among Varus’s legions, he would ultimately choose Thousnelda over Rome. He led general Varus and his army into a trap at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. Like Arminius, he retrieved his hammer—his Germanic manliness—and killed Varus. A union of Germanic tribes, among others the Marsi and the Cherusker, then slaughtered the three legions, effectively exterminating every single last one of them.
It is unlikely, though, that the battle took place in an actual forest; you can’t throw a spear very far and you can’t see the enemy. We don’t know the historical truth, in large part because the Germanic peoples didn’t leave a written history. The stories they told their children and the songs soldier sang were lost.
Perhaps Catholic book burners have been too effective. Perhaps there was and is no connection between the historic uproar of the Battle and Thrym’s Lay, even though the chronology of events in both stories seems to match. What is certain, though, is that Northern Europeans are the descendants of a subjugated people whose pre-Christian history has been forgotten and effectively erased.
Today, not only Northern Europeans but all Europeans face a new potential onslaught. Europe is under threat from being flooded by a billion immigrants from Africa, the Middle East, India and Asia. I’m not exaggerating. The United Nations projects Africa’s population alone to rise from 1 billion to 4 billion people, whereas white Europeans will decline from 500 million to below 200 million before the end of this century.
Black men will outnumber white women 10 to 1. Europe is about to be gang-raped. Our wealth will be plundered, our lands desecrated. In times like these, we must look to the past in order to bridge a path towards a more desirable future.
The Germanic ancestors of Northern Europeans defeated a numerically and technologically superior Roman army. They applied the tactics of a surprise attack, lured the Romans into a trap and slaughtered them. How can modern Europeans thwart the threat of our biological extinction through mass rape and murder? What can white Europeans do to prevent their genocide?
Buy local. Stop funding multinationals and their globalist agendas.
Stop voting. Delegitimize a corrupt “democratic” system whose puppet candidates serve multinational interests.
Arm yourself. Stock up on weapons and food supplies.
Stop paying taxes. Defund the criminal enterprise known as the European Union.
Have more children. Children are the future.
Tell boys to be warriors and tell girls to love them.
