Luther’s Great Contribution

500 years ago, Martin Luther "changed the discourse" in Germany


What was Martin Luther more famous for than anything else? Well, let’s see. It was outside-the-box thinking. Being a heretic. Standing up to the powerful. Having a conscience. Caring about the German people. Being a campaign consultant to the German princes.

Back then most literate people were ruled by an educated Catholic clergy with all their little tools of Scholastic theology that had been developed in the Middle Ages.

They spoke Latin and used their little arsenal of sacred theological concepts (which they took for granted) to interpret reality and to understand the world. This kept the brainiacs – the eunuchs of their day, the predecessors of the Washington establishment – bottled up in their own private fantasy world – flying at high altitudes above the common people.

The world that the people in Germany were feeling at the time (that Godzilla of history known as Reality) was quite different: their money flew to Rome to build great palaces for the Papacy; Rome sent the most infamous tax collector in European history, Johann Tetzel (the Morris Dees of the Early Modern Era), to sell indulgences in its provinces.

Dees as Tetzel:

“As soon as a coin in the coffer rings / the soul from purgatory springs.”

Luther translated the Bible into German. He spoke the tongue of his people. He cleaned up their language, discarded some worthless concepts, focused their resentments like a laser, and used the printing press (new technology) to bring it to the masses – and as fate would have it, all hell broke loose on the establishment!

In much the same way, the liberal establishment in Washington, Los Angeles, and New York City is bottled up its own fantasy world, and it will soon succumb to all the consequences of a wreckless fantasy ideology in a terminal moment of crisis. It is a prisoner of its own disastrous concepts.

Like Rome, Washington has lost touch with its own people, White Americans, the English language has been rotted by cultural termites to narrow the range of permissible thought (think of Orwell’s 1984), we have been put to sleep by drugs and movies for we can be exploited, and we have been ruled (for some reason) by politically corrected by Marxist schoolmarms in every university, whose “ideas” have never even worked when they were tried out in reality.

In the sixteenth century, Luther nailed that famous document of his to the church door, and it “went viral” in Germany and other European countries; it was, so to speak, an early modern discursive bomb that took out the establishment, at exactly the right moment it was ready for it.

Watch the movie:

Study this movie like a tactician. Use your imagination to find the parallels which are applicable to our own society … or just let it become a fantasy ideology, the Lord knows the West needs one in the Age of Lady Gaga, become a convert to the cause of rebuilding our civilization, instead of being someone who tears it down.

It will inspire you to do great things. A great man in this movie takes a courageous stand for truth. I’m telling you, it is good; a great powerful metaphor of what needs to be done to the liberal establishment in our own times.

If Luther were alive today, what would he be doing? He would be systematically cleaning the English language, taking advantage of new technology, “mainstreaming” technical language into Hobbit-American standard, practicing “non-violent witness” of the establishment like O’Keefe, and he would destroy an emperor who has no clothes.

The Luther strategy could be implemented today: talk radio, cable television, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, WordPress … I’m telling you, the viral potential is there, to knock Obama and his liberal eunuchs off their pedestal in Washington, just by witnessing what they are doing.

They cry, “we don’t like the tone of this discourse.” They cry, “the discourse has been polarized by extremists.” They cry, “it is racist to take your own side.”

Again, Rome said the same thing in the Reformation. Pope Leo X had to face a similar legitimacy crisis. Those damn trivial indulgences (like the “debt ceiling” debate) was the bridge too far that ignited what was really nothing more than a massive epochal backlash against an establishment that had sanctified itself with theology and an inquisition.

Rome will never make that mistake again, but it will smile from abroad while Washington foolishly does so. I will sticky this post (note the irony) for a week or so. I dare say that completes our work.

His Holiness, Morris Dees, can go home now to look for a new line of employment in Shorter, AL.

Note: The time has finally come to practice non-violence and faithful descriptions of reality on the New York Times, Washington Post, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Hussein Obama and Mark Potok.

The Tea Party has done nothing more than practice non-violence on the liberal establishment. Rush Limbaugh and FOX News practice non-violence on the New York Times. That is all we are doing here.

In Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and countless other cities, it is African-Americans who practice violence on White people. Let’s practice non-violence on these people who feel they are entitled to our tax dollars.

When the eunuchs cry unleash their great cry, you are a “violent extremist who is poisoning the discourse,” just tell them you are practicing non-violence on the establishment by telling the truth for a change.

You are engaged in “hand-to-hand combat” with Rahm Emanuel over the flash mobs in Chicago.

  1. Luther was a man, and he knew he was a man, living in a physical world with other men & women. He did not see himself having special priestly powers, or infallible powers. Luther was thoroughly human & fallible.

    If it had not been for the protection of the Elector of Saxony, and the Germanic & Nordic people, Luther would have been seized and killed by the Roman Catholic church. In all probability burning at the stake would have been a mild punishment, if the forces of the Roman church had gotten their hands on Luther.

    But, let’s remember that even though Luther is one of the most well known of the Protestant leaders there were literally thousands of lesser known & now forgotten, but equally important Protestant leaders during Luther’s time.

  2. Martin Luther was none of those, but he was the precursor to the challenge of Marxism to Western Civilization. He started another war where white Europeans killed each other with gusto. What did that accomplish except establish the precedent for the French Revolution, the rise of atheistic Marxism, the neo-cons, and Islam. Remember, no Protestant prince or any Protestant power aided the defense of Vienna against the Turk. The rise of Protestantism resulted in the alliance of Protestant Britain with the Turk against the Holy Roman Empire (Imperial Austria) and Orthodox Russia.

    Protestantism resulted in the deracinted Protestants establishment of today and the rise of MLK, namesake of Martin Luther.

    Hey sonny, you ain’t playing with the kids under the street lamp here. The Elector of Saxony was a Protestant who led a German Protestant army to raise the seige of Vienna—even leaving western Germany open to attack by the French Roman Catholics.

    Luther wrote against Islam & the forces of Islam, and the forces of the Jews & Roman Catholics. Many believe Tetzel was a Jew, even though Luther blamed the Pope, and the Pope “was” up to his neck in debt to the Jew bankers. That’s a fact!

    Just because some black preacher named Michael King decide to call himself Martin Luther King doesn’t have anything to do with Martin Luther.

    You only have to look at the Roman Catholics in Congress, and their alliance with the Jews to get a grip on what’s going on today—if you are not too much of a true believer not to see it.

  4. Much more relevant to our time now would be the contributions of the Church Fathers before Luther who above all else understood that God wanted to reveal to men a Single Truth, and who instead of stomping off like children to figure it out on their own, sacrificed their lives to something greater and created the ocean in which Luther swam.

    We’re now swimming in Luther’s sea of chaos, disagreement and atomization. We need to put our fetishization of personal Truth aside and recognize something outside of ourselves. Civilization is thousands of people looking at the same thing and agreeing on what it is.

    As Luther would kick James into the Fire, so must we learn to kick Luther into the fire. One baptism. One people. One truth. Spiritual communion. Redemption. Order. Stability.

    Curse the dividers.

  5. When the US defaults on its debt, and War begins with China, and the US finally cedes military power to the UN, which proceeds apace to even more rapidly dilute the world population into one giant brown mush, please, Luther lovers, ask yourself…

    Was it worth it?

  6. We can’t agree to close the borders.
    We can’t agree that legalized abortion infects the public square in horrible ways, and end it.
    We can’t agree that pornography is bad for the development of the Western mind, and end it.
    We can’t agree that Jewish control of Hollywood is toxic to Western identity, and end it.
    We can’t agree that solid families are more important than chasing tail, and end no-fault divorce.
    And we expect any reasonable interpretation of God to bless our endeavors as a race?

    Who are the real eunuchs?

  7. @Pitts: It was English American protestants that established the Fed and the federal income tax. You let this go in a previous blog post without comment because you know it is true to a fare thee well – that your own kind sold you out several generations ago. You can’t blame catholics for the debt slave status of US citizens. The only thing current catholic politicians are doing is making it worse – but it was your kind that let YKW into the henhouse and instituted the current financial regime.

    In addition, English American protestants have a precedent for ethnic cleansing in the US. You recall they tried to import mass levels of Chinese coolies into the US because they hated the idea of lower class whites – particularly Irish whites – making a living wage.

    Further, although the Catholic Church has come through a regrettable period where teen – priestly sexual conduct was not squarely dealt with, need I remind you that it is your protestant sects that are ordaining women and openly practicing homosexuals into the ministry. Although RCC discipline was criminally lax, it doesn’t rise to the level of subverting 2000 years of Christian morality and instituting a particularly grievous sin as a “new sacrament” as has been done in protestant denominations.

    And finally, no Christian denomination has escaped being co-opted by YKW. If HW looks at things a little more closely, he’ll find YKW pulling Cromwell’s and Luther’s strings.

    So spare us all with your one-sided narrative. All White Europeans have plenty of blood on their hands and we don’t need more internecine strife at this point.

  8. The mantra is very good to use to hammer the system that wants to genocide our race. It’s shorter than Luther’s 99 points, I believe, and can be used against anti-WHITES, whether Christian or not.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

  9. I watched this Luther film – interesting, powerful – but looking at events in the 16th century through the eyes of a racially conscious White American/Westerner living in the 21st century – it seems that just about everyone in this era is obsessed with things that are completely unimportant. Everybody in this time and place is White, except for some rumors of Turks gathering near Vienna – that should be enough to get German princes, religious law scholars and German peasants to stop arguing with each other and their resistance to paying all these taxes to White Catholics in Rome, selling indulgences should be that the money is needed to raise White armies to fight back the Turks and to improve the physical, educational condition of the German peasants. But, everyone seems obsessed with other things and Martin Luther is bringing the Jewish Old Testament fairy tale stories to the German people in the German language so they can obsess about this nonsense like the parting of the Red Sea and the slaughter of anti Jewish Persians in the Book of Esther at the same time Martin Luther is writing anti Jewish pamphlets about what contemporary Jews write about Jesus in their Talmud. Reminds me of American Evangelical Christians, Southern Baptists becoming obsessed in our time with the threat of White Mormons/Latter Day Saints.
    When White folks get religion they often do stupid things.
