Over the thirteen-month period from March of last year through April 20th of this year, a Twitter search returns a total of four–four!–instances of the phrase “Easter worshippers” being tweeted by users across the platform’s hundreds of millions of account holders and the billions and billions of tweets they produced. All four of the accounts are small, unverified ones–none even cross the four-digit follower threshold.

And then this. The phrase essentially didn’t exist until two days ago:

The mask is slipping. This has to be a simulation. I must be in a simulation. I AM IN A SIMULATION! Do I have to keep playing now that I’ve definitively figured it out? Who am I even talking–or typing–to, anyway? Go ahead, generate your responses, NPCs. I know the score!

    “Christianity, sprung from Jewish roots and comprehensible only as a growth on this soil, represents the counter-movement to any morality of breeding, of race, privilege: it is the anti-Aryan religion par excellence. Christianity—the revaluation of all Aryan values, the victory of chandala values, the gospel preached to the poor and base, the general revolt of all the downtrodden, the wretched, the failures, the less favored, against ‘race:’ the undying chandala hatred is disguised as a religion of love.”

    What the hell would Nietzsche know about anti-Aryan religions? He himself was a “bulb” corrupted by the Jews.

    [Nietzsche] has undergone a process that I saw coming for a long time, and that I struggled against with my meagre powers. Many things came together to produce that deplorable book! Finally, Israel intervened in the form of a Dr. Rée, very sleek, very cool, at the same time being captivated by Nietzsche and dominated by him, though actually outwitting him: the relationship of Judea to Germania in miniature. … I know that here evil has been victorious. … Wagner himself asserts about Nietzsche that a flower could have come from this bulb. Now only the bulb remains, really a loathsome thing.

    Christian groups that have taken those passages literally have predictably fizzled out, and are often considered outright heretical. It is rather this troll who cherry picks. Antinatalism is totally inconsistent with the Christian view of the world, the body, and life itself as fundamentally good. The body is not regarded as a defiled prison as in Eastern religions or the old Gnostic heresies, or even indigenous Platonism, which collapses into nihilism without Middle Eastern monotheism.

    cherry-picking

    But that’s what you are doing. You are ignoring verses or statements that don’t agree with your line of argument. You’re not exactly unbiased or sincere in this, right?

    I mean, I’ve seen this line of argumentation against Islam from Zionist operations and it’s generally along the same line of attack.

    The problem is, the ulema (and I would assume Christian scholarship – of which they have had great jurists/thinkers from Augustine to Aquinas to Grotius to Plantinga) has indeed evaluated and weighed the entire evidence together and then come up with subsequent conclusions and rulings.

    So throwing out your go-to verses and your interpretation of them that support your arguments will simply be countered by others throwing out their go-to verses that support their arguments. But who cares? Does anybody on this forum have any pull in the Christian community? Like, are they a pastor or the head of a church institution or theological college? No? then why does their or your opinion matter?

    Rather, if you want to make your arguments, it is more consistent to quote or cite the opinions of actual Christian scholars, institutions or clerical bodies that; 1) know the religion better than everyone else, 2) have some real weight in their community and 3) actually set the agenda and direction for their flock.

    It also helps, since then we can distinguish which branch or version of Christianity teaches or advocates which position you say they do. I mean, if you say Christians believe X, Y and Z, but no actual Christians believe X, Y and Z…well then you’re not really arguing anything substantive, but rather a meme running loops in your head that doesn’t have any serious basis in reality.

    Peace.

    Now, this is a central insight of Buddhism, which of course you will know if you have any knowledge of the subject. In the case of Buddhism, life is rejected as evil on account of its impermanence. The objective is precisely to escape life and individual existence. This is not the Christian view. Though Creation is impermanent, the Creator is not and neither is the soul. Moreover, our bodies themselves will be resurrected and made whole and incorruptible. Now, I understand that you don’t believe this, but that is the thrust of the Gospel nonetheless.

    Sure! Doing exactly the opposite of what the Jew Testament teaches is how Europeans have survived for centuries. That’s why Catholics elevate “Tradition” to the level of Scripture. A good example is marriage, which both Jesus and Paul taught against, and Christians completely ignore. Luckily, there’s that “One Neat Trick” verse that got inserted into 1 Timothy 3:12, and is vigorously wielded to neutralize all the crazy anti-natalist garbage Jesus and Paul taught.

    Even in economics, European societies must ignore the Jew Testament. Problem is, there are those that read the damn thing and keep trying to introduce communism, as free-market proponent Ludwig von Mises notes in his text Socialism.He explains how “revisers” soften the Bolshevist Scripture, but are still “continually disarmed” by it, as follows:

    The clearest modern parallel to the attitude of complete negation of primitive Christianity is Bolshevism. The Bolshevists, too, wish to destroy everything that exists because they regard it as hopelessly bad. (Socialism, p. 413)

    Jesus’s words are full of resentment against the rich, and the Apostles are no meeker in this respect. The Rich Man is condemned because he is rich, the Beggar praised because he is poor…. In God’s Kingdom the poor shall be rich, but the rich shall be made to suffer. Later revisers have tried to soften the words of Christ against the rich … but there is quite enough left to support those who incite the world to hatred of the rich, revenge, murder and arson…. This is a case in which the Redeemer’s words bore evil seed. More harm has been done, and more blood shed, on account of them than by the persecution oaf heretics and the burning of witches. They have always rendered the Church defenceless against all movements which aim at destroying human society. The church as an organization has certainly always stood on the side of those who tried to ward off communistic attack. But it … was continually disarmed by the words: “Blessed be ye poor; for yours is the Kingdom of God.” (Socialism, p. 420)

    The juxtapositions of their reactions to atrocities involving non-Christians and involving Christians are blatant. Referring to Christians as “Easter worshipers” is extremely unusual. “Ramadan celebrants” has been used before, too, but you can be sure that’s not how Muslim victims of a terrorist attack during the holy month would be referred to.

    It’s probably some leftist kid that got off script that ended up on this site but AE should be proud… at least somebody out there in the information war has now decided he’s a worthy target. When you’re catching flak… blah blah blah.

    It’s really not worth engaging with them though, it’s obvious with everyone with a room temperature IQ and even the slightest cultural literacy how dishonest this rhetoric is.

    It seems some skinny jean genius suddenly realized that the right is both Christian flavored and very suspicious of modern talmudic Judaism… that plus catching half a veggie tales worth of knowledge of Christianity… and they figure they’ve got themselves an effective wedge issue. So suddenly we’ve got a legion of ostentatiously goose stepping cartoon white nationalists whose sole motivating issue is their hatred of the historical religion of white people…. and their only action is to come into rightist circles and start sowing as much discord as possible about how DEEPLY CONZERNED they are about the anti whiteness of Christianity.

    Totally credible!

    The only problem here is that smart commenters (like yourself) on sites like this are used to serious debate and tend to want to rebut nonsense logically. The troll eats your time and energy and distracts any intellectual progress the board might otherwise make. /pol/ lurkers see this stuff a hundred times a day, so they just instantly call the guy a fag, post a funny pepe or two and move on.

    I’m hoping AE will wise up and start quickly dropping the ban hammer if he wants to continue serious discussion on his site. Otherwise it will become a littlerbox for the lefty trolls and the smart crowd will move on.

    Similar euphemisms nearly everywhere — this tweet from the German foreign office refers to “Betende und Reisende” — literal translation: praying people and travelers

    Yeah, it’s not just the consistent use of the very odd phrase “Easter worshippers” — it’s the consistent use of “tourists” or “travellers” along with it. Good point.

    So it’s not just Mockingbird-style coordination on the overall message, but the exact phraseology — and a very specific, rarely-used phrase. What’s the point? Probably:

    1. Simply avoiding use of the term “Christian,” both because it is like holy water to them, and because they want to avoid using the word “Christian” in a context where Christians are the victims of a vicious Muslim terrorist attack. Simple associative conditioning is an important part of many propaganda narratives, and they want to avoid associating the concepts of “Christian” and “innocent victim of diabolical Muslim attack.”

    2. Christophobia and toxic, hate-filled semitism are closely associated psychopathologies. One might think that many of the people parroting this odd formulation would be reluctant to specifically name the holy day that celebrates the Resurrection of Christ, due to their rabid, unreasoning hatred for Jesus. But if we look closely at the etymology for that specific English word, it turns out that it traces back to pagan times, and was repurposed to apply to the Resurrection of the Christ:

    https://www.etymonline.com/word/Easter
    Easter (n.)

    Old English Easterdæg, from Eastre (Northumbrian Eostre), from Proto-Germanic *austron-, “dawn,” also the name of a goddess of fertility and spring, perhaps originally of sunrise, whose feast was celebrated at the spring equinox, from *aust- “east, toward the sunrise” (compare east), from PIE root *aus- (1) “to shine,” especially of the dawn.

    Does Obama know that? Probably not. Does whoever gets paid to generate these kinds of propaganda narratives know it? Pretty likely.

    The German tweet that you cite:

    this tweet from the German foreign office refers to “Betende und Reisende” — literal translation: praying people and travelers (vacationers)

    is also careful to avoid any explicit reference to Christians or to Christ’s Resurrection as well, of course.

    3. Sound a little unlikely? They don’t actually plan the details down to this level, do they?

    -The corporate “news” media is a multibillion dollar industry — seemingly-unimportant details of major propaganda narratives matters quite a bit when it comes to the efficacy of propaganda that is directed at an audience of hundreds of millions or billions of people.

    -A more esoteric reason — word magic via the precise use and interpretation of language is very important to some traditions:
    https://www.bl.uk/hebrew-manuscripts/articles/the-power-of-language-in-jewish-kabbalah

    4. Sets up a “those darn libruls are disrespecting Christianity!” vs. “those idiot conservatives are just paranoid — imagining things!” dialectic to further divide the goyim.

    So is there any way to test this?
    In most modern European languages, the etymology of the word for “Easter” is either similar to that in English, or derives from the Latin/ Greek terms for Passover. But in a few languages they use the equivalent of “Resurrection.” If ZOG’s minions used the equivalent of the “Easter worshiper” trope in their Serbo-Croatian propaganda, then perhaps it was just an accident…

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Hristos_vaskrse

    Etymology

    (literally) Christ was resurrected or Christ rose.
    Phrase

    Hristos vaskrse (Cyrillic spelling Христос васкрсе)
