Jewish “Anti-Defamation League” Names Celtic Cross as “Racist Symbol”
THE SO-CALLED Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a Jewish group, has named the Celtic cross as one of the “racist symbols” used around the world to “promote hate” in their online Hate Symbols Database.
The ADL believes that versions of the Celtic cross, otherwise known as Odin’s cross, sun cross, or wheel cross, have become some of the “most important and widely used symbols of white supremacists.” The cross consists of a square cross interlocking with or surrounded by a circle.
According to the League’s database, a version of the Celtic cross was used by Norwegian National Socialists during the 1930s and 40s and a variety of European groups and movements took it as their own symbol following World War II. The Celtic Cross is also used as part of the logo of Stormfront, a popular pro-White discussion board, classed as a “hate site” by the Jewish group.
National Vanguard editor Kevin Alfred Strom stated that the ADL classes any site — whether a discussion board, news portal, or organizational site — which advocates for White interests as a “hate” site. “They’re the real haters,” says Strom. “There’s no organization, no Web site, no group that supports the interests of White people that the ADL does not classify as ‘hateful.’ So it’s not surprising that an ancient European symbol, used by many European groups, is called a ‘hate symbol,’ too. It’s part of the Jewish power structure’s consistent efforts to demonize any kind of racially-conscious assertion of White interests, White culture, or White survival. Their long-term game is genocide of White people, and the attack on the Celtic cross is just a small part of that.”
The origins of the Celtic cross date back to pre-Christian times, to a “sun cross” or a “wheel cross” used in ancient Europe. When the symbol was adopted much later by Christians, one of the arms was elongated to make it appear like the shape of a cross generally associated with the church.
Even the ADL admits “it is a very common symbol and primarily used by non-extremists.” But, they warn ominously, we must always be on the lookout for the use of the symbol by “haters.” Mr. Strom responds that “By ‘haters,’ the ADL means anyone who thinks the White race should survive.”
There are countries around the world, however, where the use of the Celtic cross has been restricted or even banned as a result of its connection with white advocacy. In Germany, the prohibited People’s Socialist Movement of Germany/Labour Party (Volkssozialistische Bewegung Deutschlands/Partei der Arbeit) adopted the use of the cross causing its use as a political symbol to be banned there.
