In our growing, diverse community of Fredericksburg, Virginia, a neo-Nazi, neo-Volkisch organization known under three monikers as Odin's Chosen, McLeather LLC, and the Himminbjorg Hof, have been floating under our noses, using their leather-work and upholstery shop as a meeting place, or "temple" as the owner calls it, for like-minded people, spreading blatantly Nazi propaganda, pro-eugenics, anti-race-mixing, misogynistic, homophobic and white supremacist beliefs. I am a supporter of free speech, but when it comes to Nazi propaganda, it is not merely "speech", but calling for ethnic cleansing, death or oppression to millions of people who don't share this view, or simply are not white and straight. The spreading and display of blatant Nazi propaganda and symbolism are tantamount to incitement which the Supreme Court has said is NOT protected speech. 

Odin's Chosen is located at 1900 Princess Anne Street in downtown Fredericksburg. People in our neighborhood should not have to feel unsafe knowing their neighbors plot their oppression and demise. Although, not only does this make our citizens feel incredibly unsafe, but this will be very bad for local businesses as Virginians and tourists become increasingly aware of a neo-Nazi presence in our downtown tourist district. 

LET ODIN'S CHOSEN KNOW NAZIS ARE NOT WELCOME IN FREDERICKSBURG. 

-------------------------------------------------

This store and its tenants claim it is a temple (hof) for their Odinist Norse religion. Since the end of WWI, the Nazis adopted Norse and ancient Germanic symbolism and mythology to spread their Aryan-centric propaganda. There is a long history of this adoption of symbolism, not only for Nazis, but various white supremacist groups across the globe.

-------------------------------------------------

Odin's Chosen uses Odin's Raven flags in their storefront window, as well as the Black Sun symbol, Valknut (three interlocking triangles) and gas masks.

  • First of all, gas masks have nothing to do with leather-work or upholstery, and are a direct allusion to German warfare. Germans were the first to use poison gas on the battlefield, and infamously, gas was designated the best proponent to reach their "Final Solution". During the height of the Nazi regime capturing and deporting Jews and others to concentration camps up to 6,000 Jews were gassed every day at Auschwitz alone. 
  • Odin's Raven is like a dog whistle for other white supremacists. Some white supremacist groups claim the Raven flag was flown when Leif Erikson landed in North America in the year 1000 and thus is the "Pure European: Flag of the Nation." And for some white supremacists, according to Dave Perry of the University of Minnesota, "the concept of Vinland asserts a historical claim over North America, stretching from the northeast coast to the Pacific Northwest. They use the myth of Vinland to position themselves as righteous defenders in the wars of race and religion they believe are coming,".
  • The Black Sun symbol is hardly a dog whistle, as it was one of the primary symbols of Heinrich Himmler's S.S. During the Third Reich the Wewelsburg Castle, where a Black Sun mosaic originating in ancient Germanic mythology is featured in the floors, became the representative and ideological center of the order of the S.S. Heinrich Himmler, the leader of the S.S., wanted to establish the "Center of the New World,". A focus of the actual S.S.-activities at the castle were archeological excavations in the surrounding region and studies on Germanic early history. These discovers made by Himmler's team were then taken and amplified by Goebbels in Hitler's mass propaganda. The Black Sun is listed by the Anti-Defamation League as a hate symbol.
  • Valknut or Three Interlocking Triangles symbol is also featured on their store window, as well as on their products. This is also listed on the Anti-Defamation League's website as a hate symbol associated with neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Nazi Germany glorified an idealized "Aryan/Norse" heritage, consequently extremists have appropriated many symbols from pre-Christian Europe for their own uses. They give such symbols a racist significance, even though the symbols did not originally have such meaning and are often used by nonracists today, especially practitioners of modern pagan religions. Some white supremacists, generally racist Odinists, have appropriated the Valknot to use as a racist symbol. Typically they use it as a sign to indicate a willingness to give their life to Odin, generally in battle. Non-racist pagans may also use this symbol, so it should be carefully examined in context.

On many of their facebook posts you can read "14/88". Fourteen Words, or simply 14, is a reference to a slogan used by white nationalists and white supremacists: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." Neo-Nazis often reference the number 14 in combination with 88, as in "14/88" or "1488" with the 8s representing the eighth letter of the alphabet (H), with "HH" standing for "Heil Hitler", as well as Lane's own 88 Precepts with "14-88" representing "14 Words and 88 Precepts" which were part of the Wotansvolk movement he founded. The pairing of "14" and "88" has since been used by other white supremacists, including murderers Dylann Roof and Curtis Allgier. Allgier has "14" and "88" tattooed on his forehead above and to the sides of the words "skin" and "head" above his eyes in his mugshot. "14/88" numerology was symbolically included in the Barack Obama assassination plot in Tennessee. The plot intended to kill 88 African Americans, including Obama – then the Democratic Party nominee – 14 of whom were to be beheaded.

-------------------------------------------------

Every day their various facebook pages upload and spread pro-eugenics, anti-race-mixing, white supremacist, white nationalist, neo-Nazi, misogynistic and homophobic images an ideas. You can check these yourself. They had deleted much of their Nazi propaganda recently, but still continue to upload and spread their white supremacist views.

"However, in the early 20th century, various right-wing adherents of the so-called “völkisch” movement in Germany, a movement in large part dedicated to uncovering a romanticized and largely mythical German/“Aryan” past, adopted the swastika as a symbol. The use of the swastika in this context subsequently influenced Adolf Hitler to adopt the swastika as the primary symbol for the Nazi Party in 1920. The murderous legacy of the Nazi regime, especially the Holocaust, permanently converted the swastika into a symbol of hate, anti-Semitism and infamy."
