A Yuletide Story From Anglo Saxon History

From the British National Party website comes this historical account of a Saxon military action.

Merry Yule to all nationalists! As an alternative to the Nativity (since not every nationalist is Christian and the BNP is a non-confessional party) here is presented a reminder of an important part of our national narrative and origins.
This is an account of another tree and another “saviour”, a contemporary of Jesus.
This is a hero who saved the European peoples from an attempt to use ethnic diversity to make us into slaves, and who belonged to the tribe that are the direct ancestors of the English – the Cherusci.
Let us remember and revere Hermann, also known as “Irimin” or by his Roman name “Arminius”.
The tree so much revered by our Germanic ancestors was the Irminsul and it stood where Hermann and his army fought one of the most important and decisive battles for our people.
In the year 2009, the director James Cameron released the film “Avatar”.
This film came out on the 2000th Anniversary of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest and contains a number of references suggesting that the story in Avatar is a nod towards acknowledging the significance.
Briefly: a brave hero, warrior defects from the army he has been recruited into, and saves a people who worship a sacred tree of their ancestors.
These people with a great reverence for nature and their tree were targeted for destruction by a ruthless materialistic enemy.
2009 marked the two thousandth anniversary of Hermann’s battle for the
Germanic people. A 19th century monument of Hermann stands in the Teutoburg forest,
bullet-ridden by hate-filled American soldiers who were stationed
nearby after the end of WWII.
Hermann, 16BC - 21AD, was chief of the ancient Germanic Cherusci tribe.
While serving as a Roman army general (his Roman name was Arminius), as
part of his tribal contingent, Hermann benefited from the highly disciplined Roman military
Stationed in Gaul, Hermann was shocked to learn the dreadful fact that
Roman legions from Gaul and western Germany would be sent to Rome, Africa
and Asia, while legions from Africa and Asia would be sent to Germany.
The Roman authorities knew well the effect on a population when they would lose their national character and be systematically diversified.
The thought of this fate was intolerable to Hermann, as he realized the
inevitable damage to his ancestral homeland and people that this would
cause. (The very term “German” comes from the Latin “germ” and “nus”, and
indicates a people whose ancestry is all the same race.)
Only if Rome were to be expelled from Germany, could this tragedy be averted. Hermann’s
decision to rebel against Rome is one of the most critically important
decisions ever made by anyone in history.
As historian Sir Edward Creasy points out, in his
“Decisive Battles of the World”, Hermann’s Cherusci tribe went on, from
their original 200,000 strong, to become the ancestors of the many
millions of Anglo-Saxon English speaking people of today.
Hermann’s family was divided, as were other families in his tribe, over
rebellion against the Romans.
Hermann was opposed by his brother,
brother-in-law, father, father-in-law and an uncle. Hermann’s brother,
also an officer in the Roman army, would not join Hermann, despite being
implored to in the name of his mother and their racial gods.
His brother
was angered and challenged Hermann to combat which, fortunately, was
prevented by others.
Hermann’s father-in-law, Segestes, was such a traitor to his tribe that he even gave Hermann’s pregnant wife - his own daughter -
to the Romans, to ingratiate himself with them. She and her golden haired son were
displayed, chained, in Rome in 17AD. Strabo, the Greek historian,
witnessed this.
Tacitus, Roman historian who wrote much about the character of the Germanic people, claimed that this outrage galvanized Hermann who let it be known to all Germanic tribes that their women and children were at risk of being taken by the Romans.
They would face becoming fodder for brothels, paedophiles and homosexuals. This would be in stark contrast to the pure morals of the Germanic people, who would rather die than be reduced to that.
Rome had given special favours to members of the leading families, and had
thus bought their loyalty, but Varus, the new Roman governor of Germany,
restricted these privileges.
Hermann noticed there was a growing unease as
a result of Varus further usurping the tribal chiefs’ power.
Hermann’s warriors were much bigger, sturdier men than the Romans, but the
Romans had the advantage of their armour and their disciplined manoeuvres.
There was a solution to this, and that was to lure the Romans into a
killing ground of the Germanics’ own choosing: the narrow defiles, muddy
tracks and gloomy forests of the Teutoburg would be ideal.
conditions within the forest only allowed for little more than single file
passage. Hermann planned to get Varus and his legions to march through the
forest, so that the enemy could easily be picked off.
Varus suspected none of this revolt, being reassured by the peaceful
appearance of the common people. Hermann’s own father-in-law, Segestes,
tried to warn Varus that things were not as they seemed and that the
German troops commanded by Hermann were planning to revolt, uniting with
the other tribal warriors. Varus would not believe him.
Once the Romans were in the forest, the baggage train and troops became
drawn out. Seeing that they were unable to deploy with their usual
discipline, the signal was given and the barbarian attack launched.
battle lasted for three days. No quarter was given, nor asked for. Three
legions were massacred to a man, near present day Detmold, Paderborn.
Around 35,000 enemies were killed, which included more than 17,000 Romans
and a similar number of camp followers and auxiliaries, including
mercenaries and Jewish slave traders.
Skulls and entrails were fixed to
trees to increase the terror felt by the enemy. This practice of hanging
such trophies from trees can be seen as the origin of the Germanic
tradition of offering sacrifices to trees.
This race memory continued to
be represented on Viking renditions of the sacred tree at Upsalla up until
the end of the heathen times.
The tradition is a gruesome parallel with the present innocuous hanging of decorations on Yule trees – although some might prefer to consider that a coincidence.
After the battle, the victorious Teutons pledged forever to maintain their
race and liberty. That night, the forests were full with their war cries.
On the battle site, a great oak tree grew: Irminsul.
This sacred tree
was venerated for hundreds of years and, even during the First World War, German officers
were reputed still to have made offerings to oak trees.
The head of Varus was sent as a present to Marbod, another German chief,
in order to encourage his forces to unite with Hermann’s in
attacking Rome.
The plan failed, as Marbod was a cunning schemer who felt
that he would benefit by having Rome fight Hermann’s tribe, thus weakening
both and possibly allowing him to take over.
However, Augustus Caesar expected the German tribes would indeed unite and
that the Empire would be invaded.
He forced slaves and freemen of war age
into the Roman army. Augustus Caesar was emotionally devastated by the defeat
of Varus and his legions.
Until Augustus’ end, he mourned on the
anniversary of this disaster to Rome.
When it was discovered that Marbod was not going to join forces with
Herman after all, Imperial Rome attempted revenge and re-conquest.
war against Hermann failed, after six years of battle. Desperate not to
lose face, the Roman commanders said that they were withdrawing because
they had pacified the area.
In fact, only tribes west of the Rheine were
subjugated. The Anglo-Saxons were left well alone behind their 100 mile
death zone, where any outsiders who entered would be killed immediately.
Rome never raised significant troops from Africa and Asia again
(considering them of inferior quality) and henceforth 95% of recruits into the
legions were from the Rhineland, Gaul, Belgium, Britannia and Holland.
Four hundred years later came the Anglo-Saxon migration from Germany to
Britain, forming the ethnic English nation.
History would have taken a very different direction had Hermann not
succeeded in preventing the Romans from reaching the Baltic.
With the
help of Roman-controlled German warriors, even Scandinavia could have been conquered and subjected to inevitable mongrelization.
As other Germanic tribes realised that their race and their liberty had
been rescued by Hermann, their reverence for him grew. Becoming
like a religious worship, the memory of Hermann was sacred, and lasted for
centuries, as well it deserved.
The Irminsul, the great oak named after Hermann, was very important to these Teutons. Because of this, after hundreds of years standing, the tree was targeted by Charlemagne in 772
He had Irminsul, also known as the Tree of Thor, cut down in his attempt to snuff out paganism. This desecration initiated the Viking racial holy war, lasting for 200 years.
It was this thirst for vengeance that made the Vikings so keen to raid
Christian nations, burn churches and plunder.
As the Germanics declared
upon the destruction of Irminsul: You can kill us all, but then you will
have to answer to our cousins across the Baltic and they are fiercer than
From an Earthly point of view, Hermann is far more worthy of the honour of our people than other religious figures currently worshiped.
Effectively, he is the father of our people, without whom there would have been no European civilization in America, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.
Indeed, without Hermann’s timely intervention, there might now be no White race at all.
Let us honour and revere Hermann as a shining example of how one man can
make a huge difference in the struggle to protect their racial heritage
and future progeny.
The anniversary of Hermann’s revolt passed silently, as we live in an alien culture where true history is hidden for religious and ideological reasons. Let us hope that Hermann will inspire a new revolt of sorts, against materialism and universalism.
We should remember his legacy, summed up in the Icelandic term for those ancient Germanics:
“thodthverdthur”, “the people’s defenders”.
