Vikings, Nordic Symbols, Supremacists and Manipulation of Fear

On this video let us focus on a few contexts of appropriation of Nordic symbols, icnonography, mythological accounts and images, from the part of certain groups with extremist ideals, to express their racial doctrines. The appropriation and re-interpretation of the “viking” culture to establish a superficial “primitive” spirituality to justify nationalist romantic movements drawing inspiration from an imagined “Golden Age” of Pagan Europe.
