A pagan neo-Nazi couple, Eric Meadows and his wife, Angela Johnson, have purchased 44 acres of land (about the size of 43 football fields) in rural Meigs County, Tennessee, with the intention of establishing a community for the like-minded bigots of their near 300-person strong pagan neo-Nazi Facebook group.

Via Times Free Press:

Online, he and his wife have gathered around themselves a community of white supremacists who subscribe to a revitalized offshoot of early Germanic paganism called “heathenism.”

The couple has added members to a closed Facebook group that has ballooned to just under 300 members over the past several months.

The group’s page states: “Wotans Nation is indeed on the rise! The formation and creation of an actual location and community in the works and close to becoming a reality.”

The group’s website also indicates members who pass background checks will be able to move into the community and rental cabins will be constructed for visitors.

“Wotans Nation offers membership within the Nation to Folkish Heathens that meet the requirements and are willing to move into the Nation and become active participants in the community.”

Folkish Heathens, by the way, are not atheists who are way into Woody Guthrie. Folkish, in this instance, refers to the Völkisch movement, which was sort of a German-mythology-inspired “back to the land” movement for racists prior to actual National Socialism taking hold. Heathenry refers to the actual occult stuff that the Nazis were into, which you probably already know a ton about if you happen to spend a lot of time watching the History Channel. Many high ranking Nazis were known to be part of the Thune Society, and into both German mythology and theosophy.

The group calls itself Wotans Nation — Wotan being another word for Odin, as these people also refer to themselves as Odinists. It appears to be a branch of Wotansvolk, the white nationalist pagan religion founded by David Lane — a former member of the terrorist group The Order — while he was serving time in prison for being the getaway driver for the murder of Jewish radio host Alan Berg and a variety of other crimes. He is also the originator of the 1488 slogan, the 14 words (“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children”) and the 88 precepts (though “88” also stands for “Heil Hitler” in Nazispeak).

Their website, which is currently down, explained their “mission.”

“As the indigenous Europeans are increasingly being called home by our ancient Gods there arises a need for our folk to have a place to practice our religion freely, without fear of social stigma and in a healthy and natural environment among other culturally and spiritually similar people,” it states.

“It is in that spirit that the Wotans Nation project has been formed Wotans Nation is an actual community within Eastern Tennessee made up of Folkish Heathens coming together and working as a theologically based community.”

Meadows, who calls himself “Erik Thorvaldsson” (Eric the Red’s actual name) online, has been active in white supremacist movements for quite some time now. He was previously associated with League of the South and hosted an internet radio show called “NSM Hoff” (the NSM referring to National Socialist Movement) up until a few months ago. His wife, Angela Johnson, has also been a known member of the National Socialist movement.

This is, of course, far from the first time this century that someone has gone and tried to create some kind of intentional community for racist white people. Certain condo associations aside, there was also the failed attempt by white-supremacist-who-turned-out-to-be-part-black Craig Cobb to turn Leith, North Dakota, into Nazi Paradise.

One Meigs County resident, Jason Choate, believes this will not go over well:

“If the community gets involved and figures out what’s going on, then I think they’ve made a mistake as far as picking a place to do that. Meigs County is a small community and everyone sticks together. When people in this community make up their mind that you’re not welcome, then they have their own way of taking care of things,” he said.

However, the county is 96 percent white, and according to one teenager who lives there, up until a couple decades ago they would have chased off any black people trying to move in. Another teen says he’s heard kids at school talking about how they were looking forward to joining. Dakota Ricker, one of the few black people in the county, pointed out that “[i]t’s Meigs County. Everybody’s racist in Meigs County,” noting that a few more racists wouldn’t chase them away.

The mayor’s response to this group moving in was simply to talk about how much people in Meigs County love the Bible:

“The people of Meigs County are a very religious people that believe in the Bible and teaching their children right from wrong and the Ten Commandments and that’s what our county people stand for. They go to church, they worship God and they raise their children that way.”

While it may seem like these Nazis may be doing the world a favor by keeping to themselves on their Aryan compound, it is also pretty terrifying, given that groups like these tend to be partial to gun hoarding and militia building. Considering that the guy who basically started this religious movement was an actual Nazi terrorist, it does not seem like this will end very well.

    Can they just require that the walls be really high? Like, say, 40 feet? That way, after they all go in the county can just weld the doors shut.

  • Michael Smith

    The people of that county might like the racism, but they won’t like the paganism. They’ll see it as devil worship and I think for most of them, their fear of this group unleashing demons in their county will outweigh their admiration for the white supremacy.

    • Widdle Kim

    I’m confused by the mayor’s response. What does sky god’s church have to do with a bunch of occulty witch racists setting up shop on Cletus’s old farm that got repossessed by the bank for not paying taxes probably? Is the town going to pitchfork them out of town for not saying Merry Christmas like republican Jesus preaches? Put up or shut up Christians of Meigs County?

        Eric Clapton and right-wing racism in 1976:

        Originally conceived as a one-off concert with a message against racism, Rock Against Racism was founded in 1976 by Red Saunders, Roger Huddle and others. According to Huddle, “it remained just an idea until August 1976” when Eric Clapton made a drunken declaration of support for former Conservative minister Enoch Powell (known for his anti-immigration Rivers of Blood speech) at a concert in Birmingham. Clapton told the crowd that England had “become overcrowded” and that they should vote for Powell to stop Britain from becoming “a black colony”. He also told the audience that Britain should “get the foreigners out, get the wogs out, get the coons out”, and then he repeatedly shouted the National Front slogan “Keep Britain White”.

The other, of course, involves orcs. – John Rogers.

    • OneYieldRegular

      “John-Boy! What’r’you doin’ behind that locked doah?”

  • I didn’t think that paganism and naziism (sp?) are compatible. All the pagans I know are really good people.

    • Ray in VT

      The Nazis promoted various elements of Medieval and ancient Germanic traditions as a part of their ideology and pageantry, including pre-Christian elements.

      • Gigglesnort

        Himmler was way into that stuff. There is very little hard information about what kind of pagan religion pre-Christian Germanic peoples had, but they took what info existed and added a bunch of stuff they invented, and of course gave it all a Nazi twist, which was very likely not in whatever original paganism they were borrowing from.

        • Ray in VT

          What amazed me, as I got older and learned more, was that the Nazis did actually seek out mythical relics that supposedly had supernatural properties. There are also stories of attempts to commune with the dead. Just a whole bunch of nutty stuff from the true believers in the S.S.

          It is my impression that much of what we know of Norse mythology, or perhaps more appropriately what we believe that we know, comes from really only a single source, Snorri Sturluson in the 13th century.

          • Gigglesnort

            That is pretty much right. Note Snorri wrote a lot about myths and legends but didn’t say much at all about how the gods were worshiped, or what role religion played in ordinary life. There are a few other sources, for example Adam of Bremen.

          • Ray in VT

            And of course Snorri was dealing with a particular time and place, and the beliefs that he was speaking of likely would not have been spread consistently over all of northern Europe. We’re talking about a pretty large area of land, and while we do see a great deal of movement of Scandinavian people along the coasts, I am not sure to what extent they or their beliefs penetrated or were shared by Germanic peoples in what is now modern Germany and its immediate environs.

    • Vel Venturi

      Believe you me, there’s definitely some scary folks in the pagan community. Heck, even mildly SJW-focused posts on pagan FB groups tend to draw a fair amount of surprisingly racist comments. It’s a big umbrella, and some real sleazeballs manage to sneak in under there.

      More than that. Let’s say the locals DO decide to oppose them, not on grounds of being racist, but on grounds of being pagan. This has happened with other places (can’t say 100% if other land sanctuaries but probably). So – do we, as pagans, stand up for them because we have as much right to a sanctuary as any other religious group? Or do we not, because Nazi dickhead racists? Either way, its not a good answer.

    Don’t know if it’s mentioned below, but in addition to the Aryan Nations compound in Hayden Lake, Idaho (which gave rise to The Order), there was Bo Gritz’s “Almost Heaven” project near Kamiah, ID in the 1990s. It was intended to be a Christian Identity sanctuary but collapsed due to local opposition (including one group that thought they were too mild) and the departure of one of the founders, former AZ State Senator Jerry Gillespie, who had squandered $1 million in land sales proceeds.

  • Blanche de Shambles

    Two possibilities spring to mind:

    a) Because neo-Nazis are so well known for getting along with people, one or more aspiring members of the master race who come to live on the compound will get upset about the chore wheel or something, and decide to settle it with gunfire.

    b) Something will catch fire, and because they are on unincorporated land and there is no fire department, the whole dang thing will burn down.

            I’m really interested. When you’re a stupid person that’s trying to convince other people of something that’s very obviously false, do you know you’re stupid and just have an emotional need to prove that you’re not?

            I mean, you have failed on every rubric of evidence and logic, yet you still beleive. It’s interesting to the folks here who aren’t completely failed projects.

            The Into Africa hypothesis

            The Into Africa hypothesis has been proposed by Anatole Klyosov,a chemist from Russia who is now living in America. He writes prolifically on the subject of what he calls “DNA genealogy”. His research is almost all self-published. Klyosov is the editor of Advances in Anthropology published by the questionable open access publisher Scientific Research Publishing. None of the members of the journal’s editorial board has a background in population genetics. Klyosov has published two articles in this journal (2012 and 2014) supposedly refuting the Out of Africa hypothesis and proposing his alternative Into Africa theory. But these papers focus on a questionable analysis of Y-DNA and mtDNA which are of limited value for inferences about human origins. (Y-DNA and mtDNA tests can, however, be used legitimately for genealogical purposes.)

            In January 2015, a group of leading Russian academics published a letter in the popular science magazine Troitskii Variant denouncing Anatole Klyosov’s “DNA demagoguery”.

            Will leave you with that and if you want more debunking you can actually follow the breadcrumbs yourself.

          • Einherjar

            And you completely ignored the Denisovan Cave. Good job. Way to focus on one thing and ignore the other.

          • Lil’Evil

            You linked to a pseudo scientist. Way to go.

          • Einherjar

            Way to go that is called a deflection. Back on Topic, Denisovan Cave.

          • Lil’Evil

            Which topic? You know this subject well you claim. Why did you try and support your statement with a snake oil salesman? And do not deflect to the other thing you threw out there.

            First we deal with the issue of you linking a quack. Why did you link to it. Because if you knew this subject isnt that rather odd.

          • Einherjar

            Once again, a deflection. Just because someone is a quack doesn’t mean they are wrong.

            Get back on topic, or are you going to continue to hammer at this one thing and ignore published peer reviewed sources on the Denisovan Cave?

          • Lil’Evil

            Okay then:

            “Yeah, more out of Africa debunked theory, Our haploid markers show why that theory was proven wrong ages ago and yet keeps getting pushed forward inthe name of a liberal narrative.

            We are closer to Asian than elsewhere and even then there are problems with those haploid markers”

            Explain without linking what the Denisov cave shows us and how it proves your statement above and the into africa theory.

            Then and only then will I engage. Otherwise I will still want to know why link to a quack when if you know the material you should be able to find loads of people who have written about this.

          • Einherjar

            Without linking the Denisovan Cave? Humanity came up in multiple locations not just in Africa.

            A detailed comparison of the Denisovan, Neanderthal, and human
            genomes has revealed evidence for a complex web of interbreeding among
            the lineages. Through such interbreeding, 17% of the Denisova genome
            represents DNA from the local Neanderthal population, while evidence was
            also found of a contribution to the nuclear genome from an ancient
            hominin lineage yet to be identified,[12]
            perhaps the source of the anomalously ancient mtDNA. DNA from this
            archaic species represents as much as 8% of the Denisovan genome.[34]

            Analysis of genomes of modern humans show that they mated with at least two groups of Archaic humans: Neanderthals (more similar to those found in the Caucasus than those from the Altai region)[12] and Denisovans.[19][22][35] Approximately 4% of the DNA of non-African modern humans is shared with Neanderthals, suggesting interbreeding.[22] Tests comparing the Denisova hominin genome with those of six modern humans – a ǃKung from South Africa, a Nigerian, a Frenchman, a Papua New Guinean, a Bougainville Islander and a Han Chinese – showed that between 4% and 6% of the genome of Melanesians
            (represented by the Papua New Guinean and Bougainville Islander)
            derives from a Denisovan population; a later study puts the amount at
            1.11% (with an additional contribution from some different and yet
            unknown ancestor).[36] This DNA was possibly introduced during the early migration to Melanesia. These findings are in concordance with the results of other comparison tests which show a relative increase in allele
            sharing between the Denisovan and the Aboriginal Australian genome,
            compared to other Eurasians and African populations; however, it has
            been observed that Papuans, the population of Papua New Guinea, have
            more allele sharing than Aboriginal Australians.[37]

            Melanesians are not the only modern-day descendants of Denisovans. David Reich of Harvard University,
            in collaboration with Mark Stoneking of the Planck Institute team,
            found genetic evidence that Denisovan ancestry is shared also by Australian Aborigines, and smaller scattered groups of people in South-East Asia, such as the Mamanwa, a Negrito people in the Philippines though not all Negritos were found to possess Denisovan genes; Onge Andaman Islanders and Malaysian Jehai,
            for example, were found to have no significant Denisovan inheritance.
            These data place the interbreeding event in mainland South-East Asia,
            and suggest that Denisovans once ranged widely over eastern Asia.[38][39][40] Based on the modern distribution of Denisova DNA, Denisovans may have crossed the Wallace Line, with Wallacea serving as their last refugium.[41][42] A paper by Kay Prüfer in 2013 said that mainland Asians and Native Americans had around 0.2% Denisovan ancestry.[43]

            The immune system’s HLA
            alleles have drawn particular attention in the attempt to identify
            genes that may derive from archaic human populations. Although not
            present in the sequenced Denisova genome, the distribution pattern and
            divergence of HLA-B*73 from other HLA alleles has led to the suggestion
            that it introgressed
            from Denisovans into humans in west Asia. As of 2011, half of the HLA
            alleles of modern Eurasians represent archaic HLA haplotypes, and have
            been inferred to be of Denisovan or Neanderthal origin.[44]
            The apparent over-representation of these alleles suggests a positive
            selective pressure for their retention in the human population. A higher
            quality Denisovan genome published in 2012 reveals variants of genes in
            humans that are associated with dark skin, brown hair and brown eyes –
            consistent with features found with Melanesians today.[45]

            As of 2013 it has been suggested, in the absence of genomic evidence, that the Red Deer Cave people of China were the result of interbreeding between Homo sapiens and Denisovans within a few thousands years of the end of the last glacial period.[46]

            In 2013 the Neanderthal genome project published evidence of a minimum 0.5% Neanderthal gene flow into the Denisovans.[47] The Denisovan genome shared more derived alleles with the Altai Neanderthal genome from Siberia than with the Vindija cave Neanderthal genome from Croatia and the Mezmaiskaya cave
            Neanderthal genome from the Caucasus, suggesting that the gene flow
            came from a population that was more closely related to the Altai
            Neanderthal.[47]
            The Denisovan genome includes a component derived from an unknown
            hominin that diverged long before the modern human/Neanderthal/Denisovan
            separated, suggesting a possible gene flow from said unknown hominin to
            Denisovans or a population sub-structure.[47]

            According to a study published in Nature in July 2014, a region of DNA around the EPAS1 gene that assists with adaptation to low oxygen levels at high altitude found in Tibetans is also found in the Denisovan genome. The study involved 40 Han Chinese and 40 people of ethnic Tibetan background; the EPAS1 gene served as a reference point for where to sequence the DNA.[48][49]

            Studies published in March 2016 suggest that modern humans bred with
            hominins, including Denisovans and Neanderthals, on multiple occasions.[50]

            You are going to believe what you want to believe even though the facts are there that humanity didn’t come from one location. I’ll let you read the copy paste because you seem incapable of reading directly from the wikia with the notes that put actually published research.

          • Lil’Evil

            Well done a copypaste from wikipedia.

            Neither the wiki or the articles I have read support your thesis. So you failed yet again. Is there or is there not articles that state Humans evolved simultaneously around the globe? That however is a small part of your thing.

            You also peddled the into Africa theory.

    Just in case someone else hasn’t done this yet, I feel a need to wade in and explain that not all Heathen-identified reconstructionist religions are racist, just the most obnoxious. It’s been an ongoing problem within the Heathen-Asatru religious communities.

    Also, while the Good People™ of Meigs County may find themselves down with the white supremacy, they may not be quite so copacetic with the Heathenry. It is, after all, not particularly Christian-friendly :D

        • Einherjar

          All I need to do is reword it to shouldn’t black people build their homes in Africa then?

          • Lil’Evil

            Read the quote in the article then re-read the comment. Then perhaps the wooshing above your ears will cease.

      • Red Bird on a Shithouse

        Nope. Only Indigenous Europeans need to be sent back to Europe. That way they can freely associate with other Indigenous Europeans. Then Americans will be free to associate with those who can handle true diversity.

        • Lil’Evil

          Hey now! No need to send us your problems.

          We are still taking care the fallout of your last middle eastern excursion =)

        • Einherjar

          Another way of saying, I can have my freedom of association but you can’t have yours because it offends me on what I think is proper and what I think true diversity entails.

    • Jado

      “Black Americans have not ever been able to actively separate themselves into exclusive communitie”

      They HAVE tried a few times

      Rosewood, FL
      Ocoee, FL
      Greenwood, OK

      I wonder what all these have in common…

      • Red Bird on a Shithouse

        That only proves my point that black people have not been able to do it. If another group of people can destroy your community without punishment then you effectively are not allowed to form a community.

        Also my other point is that the few communities they have formed were the result of segregation. Why do you think black people felt the need for a Rosewood or Greenwood? They weren’t getting a fair chance in the rest of America.

        On the other hand the white people in this post are separating themselves from the rest of America because they object to black people being given a fair chance. They want segregation because it reinforces a hierarchy that favors them.

        There is a reason why they don’t want to compete on a level playing field. And the more open competition gets, the more resentful the former beneficiaries of white supremacy will get. Which is sad because I was always told America is a place where you’re only judged by your ability.
