So you may have seen Galina’s post about how a half dozen Heathens have had pictures featuring the Othala rune removed. I’m one of those she’s taking about. I tried to make the one saying “home, faith, folk” my cover photo when I heard about this. It was less than 10 minutes before it was removed for “violating community standards”. NINE minutes. NINE.
What’s so offensive about these? There is nothing hateful about our sacred symbols, and we should NOT be ceding them to white supremacists or sacrificing them on the altar of PC culture.
Those of you who have followed this blog for a few years might remember that when I owned my own land, I had this rune drawn on my cabin door. I guess according to Facebook, that makes me a racist now. :rolls eyes:
Othala means home, heritage, family, folk, tribe. ALL TRIBES. It has nothing to do with the color your skin, NOTHING to do with hate or dominance. By removing these photos, Facebook is not only discriminating against Heathens, but is actively ALLOWING the debasement and defilement of our symbols by ignorant uneducated trash.
