NEW AND TOWN APPROVED WHITES ONLY CHURCH SAYS NO, WE’RE TOTALLY NOT RACIST!
So do you remember that time you said you couldn’t possibly be racist, because you had all these black/latino/Asian/whatever friends? Or, maybe you just watched a Fox News segment where someone said the like? Because hey, if you have to qualify why you aren’t a racist, that means you are probably a racist. Or, rather, why in the world are you even addressing this question? What was it you did or said that forced you to explain just how it is that you’re not a racist tool? It’s rather more than the fallacy and saying, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” But what about a church? Because in Minnesota, there’s a Whites Only church. Whites. Only. But they are eager to explain that they are totally not racists. Really.
MURDOCK, MINNESOTA TOWN SLOW TO REALIZE THAT THIER BRAND IS NOW FOREVER, WHITES ONLY
So sure, it’s a totally rural church. Like, cray-cray rural. It’s in Murdock, Minnesota. But while it’s a farming town, it’s a really small farming town. It’s home to all of 280 people. And the neo-Völkisc Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA) there just opened themselves an all-new house of worship. Whites. Only. In a town with 280 people. Uh, okay. So just how is it that you are not racists? Others also had the same thought. A petition against the new whites only church included over 50,000 who signed on. But math being what it is, it’s safe to say that most of them don’t live in Murdock, Minnesota.
FOR SOME REASON, TOWN COUNCIL MEMBERS HID DURING ZOOM MEETING APPROVING WHITES ONLY CHURCH
And, because facts about totally racist groups who say they’re not racists are awkward, it only gets worse. The AFA is supposedly a pre-Christian organization. So think, sorta Viking pagan. But no one can be in the AFA who isn’t white. Yet if you know anything about the real Vikings, a bunch of them weren’t, um, white. But now, because the Murdock city council just approved this new, whites only church, Murdock has got themselves some attention. The council voted 3-1 in favor of whites only being ok on a remote Zoom meeting. Oddly, none of them actually had their cameras on. Sure, it’s winter. But that’s quite the white out if I n(ever) saw one.
