For those who are unfamiliar with this story, the negro Idris Elba of HBO’s The Wire (the gangster “Stringer Bell”) has been cast as the Germanic god Heimdall in the film, which is set to be released in May 2011.
Personally, I would never watch “Thor” under any circumstances, especially a PC version that spreads nonsense about European history and mythology. We all know people in our own circle of friends who might be be tempted to watch a summer blockbuster action movie like this. We should discourage them from doing so.
I support the anti-Thor effort.
It is drawing a lot of publicity to our cause. I have seen the boycott mentioned on MSNBC several times now. If for no other reason than self interest, we should throw our weight behind this effort.
It has not escaped my attention either that this is a positive, constructive response to an identifiable problem. The Thor boycott has already succeeded in getting some publicity for the White Nationalist cause. Heathens and Christians are also working together for once instead of fighting about theology on the internet. That’s another reason to support this.
