I love orc-posting. Lord of the Rings and 40k. The last conceptions of right wing society left in the popular imaginations. Except of course for Castalia House and AltHero etc. I love the one about the Men of Harad and the Oliphaunt off to a feminist potluck dinner in London.

The suicide victim had evidently shot himself with three Uruk Hai arrows that he had stolen in a pathetic attempt to frame the deceased youth.

Even in death, his racism is rampant, and his guilt over his racism is no doubt why he killed himself.

I have never seen anything like this.
I bend my knee before the greatest meme ever.

#GME!

Awesome.

The, 'historian' that depicted a typical Roman-Britain family as black African would be at the front of this.

If there were real orcs I have no doubt we'd be told they are just as human as you and I and their horrific crimes were due to racism.

Blogger Dangeresque May 21, 2018 10:09 AM  

I've always thought that anyone who read Tolkien and didn't get that Orcs were Blacks and Elves were Asians was missing out.

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother May 21, 2018 10:13 AM  

Oh yeah and did anyone pick up on Gondor, Rohan and Arnor being white Englishmen?

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother May 21, 2018 10:14 AM  

The Easterling hordes were probably Slabs and Gypsies.

"and Elves were Asians"

Elves weren't Asians.

Or Mohommedans.

Great meme, gotta pass this around.

Orcs according to Tolkien have exaggerated oriental features and Turkish names. Elves aren't Asian. Besides the Brits, (Rohan, Bree, Gondor, etc the only obvious parallel was the dwarves/Jews that's from Tolkien. I imagine by his description various groups to the south and east like the Variags of Khand either had their names or the entire group pulled from history.

Too funny!

Saruman was guilty of race-mixing so his white privilege eventually went to the wizard who would not let evil cross the bridge.

Blogger The Surly Beaver May 21, 2018 11:21 AM  

@12 Wrong - in Tolkein's world it's the Hobbits who are the prototypical Englishmen.

Blogger Man of The West May 21, 2018 11:32 AM  

Elves always seemed like noble pagan European past. Their attitudes, knowledge, and being ancient, plus their classical appearance and that in the lore they are not permitted into heaven. Very similar to how noble pagans are depicted in Dante’s inferno

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother May 21, 2018 11:40 AM  

Beaver,

I know, Samwise and the rest of them were the sturdy English everyman that carried the day, not the noble Knights, heros, kings, etc.

English, but not nobles. Bree, Gondor and Rohan were Brits or perhaps Northern European, but certainly with a noble class?

Blogger pdwalker May 21, 2018 11:47 AM  

I bet you all think this is parody...

Blogger Akulkis May 21, 2018 12:00 PM  

Parody of what?

It's showing the relationship between Tolkien's writings and real, tangible life

Gondoreans are Romans
Numenoreans are Greeks
Elves are Persians/Mesopotamians/Babylonians
Dwarves are both Jews and Germans
Pukil-Men are Mesolithic hunter-gatherers
Eorlingas are Anglo-Saxons
Hobbits are the native Celtic tribes of Britain. Southrons are Mohammedans.
Dunlenders are Vikings.

@19 Stg58/Animal Mother

Rabbi Meir Soloveichik’s essay “The Secret Jews of the Hobbit” detailed the inspiration Tolkien took from the Jewish people for the dwarves in “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

“We have, then, a bunch of short, bearded beings exiled from their homeland, who have dreamed forever of returning,” Soloveichik wrote. “They are linked to a place they lost long ago, dwell in other realms throughout the earth, and yet are so profoundly connected to their own kingdom that it remains vivid to them while for others it is a fading memory.”

That’s not just Soloveichik’s interpretation; Tolkien himself, it turns out, publicly said the Jews inspired Middle Earth’s dwarves. Soloveichik quoted a BBC interview in which Tolkien, a linguist, explained he based the dwarves’ language on Semitic language, as well as a letter the author sent his daughter in which he wrote “I do think of the ‘Dwarves’ like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the languages of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue.”

It’s true that the Hobbit occasionally describes the dwarves in ways Jews would be unlikely to welcome – as Soloveichik points out, Tolkien’s description in “The Hobbit” of dwarves as “not heroes, but calculating folk with a great idea of the value of money; some are tricky and treacherous and pretty bad lots,” is uncomfortably resonant with anti-Semitic tropes – but Tolkien himself was a defender of the Jews. In the lead-up to World War II, Soloveichik recounts, Tolkien was approached about the possibility of a German translation of “The Hobbit,” during the negotiations over which he was asked if he was Aryan.

“[If] I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people,” he wrote. He had always been, he wrote, proud of his own German heritage, but “if impertinent irrelevant inquiries of this sort are to become the rule in matters of literature, then the time is not far distant when a German name will no longer be a source of pride.”

Seriously, dwarves as anything other than scotsman??? Great beards, super ugly or non existent women, super greedy, and the best at building and crafting especially stone work.

Thank you. These memes fill my soul with laughter

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother May 21, 2018 2:59 PM  

Mr. Deficient,

I agree with you. Dwarves are totally Scots. Always ill tempered and pissed off too.

Blogger Snidely Whiplash May 21, 2018 3:53 PM  

Dwarves can't be Scots
They're honest
They support themselves
They don't borrow money
The things they make are both useful AND beautiful
They can sing

Blogger Brick Hardslab May 21, 2018 10:10 PM  

Tolkien incorporated most of Britain at one time or another in various parts of Middle Earth. Rohan, Shire, Bree, etc. He even added the industrialization which was not pretty and was properly scoured away. Too bad we never did.

Blogger Ceerilan May 21, 2018 10:31 PM  

If you haven't watched Fellowship 911, I would recommend it to everyone interested. It's a parody of how Michael Moore would have framed the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
