Yeah, this was a tough article to write (and keep short and interesting) because getting into the differences between various neopagans is so important.

On the other hand, you can spot Asatru symbolism at just about any right-wing rally in the Unites States today. Racist Asatru isn’t totally fringe anymore. It’s increasingly popular among the most right-wing elements of Trump supporters and the like.
