Movies, movies, movies… but now a little about television. More specifically, about a particular television show, ThunderCats, which first aired in January of 1985. I remember many 1980s and early 1990s TV shows as I was growing up at the time. I watched mainly GI Joe (with a typical young male military fascination) as well as some other zany, though fairly generic, cartoons like Tiny Toons and Bonkers that had all the classic cartoon slapstick gags such as falling anvils as well as all that silly and destructive, yet largely victimless, mayhem. Looking back at these cartoons now, there really isn’t much more to extract from them, they are mainly just simple fun for kids, though GI Joe is military propaganda through and through.
One show that I missed, however, was ThunderCats and I thank Kamerad Aryan Sanctuary for bringing it to my attention. Even when taken at face value, ThunderCats possesses something radically different about it than other shows of its time. Or from any time, really. Main reason being that ThunderCats has Aryan themes. Yes, the show is geared for kids, it’s a cartoon after all, and it does contain common storytelling devices, but the Aryanist factor is not just what happens, but how it happens. I’ll draw examples from some of the program’s first episodes.
The main story introduction tells us that the ThunderCats are all that’s left of a civilization from a now destroyed planet called Thundera. They were the civilization’s nobility and among the ranks of the leaders of a folk. Now they must find a new home so that their civilization can continue. This very first episode is called “Exodus” and it may seem like a reference to the Jewish fabricated legend, but it in fact refers to the dispersal of the ancient Aryan Civilization. The facts have been greatly simplified for this cartoon show, but thematically it is consistent with reality. One needs to trail blaze just outside the mainstream media to find a wealth of information about the factual Aryan civilization and the seemingly “inexplicable” fact of why the swastika is probably the World’s most prominent (as well as most suppressed) symbol.
Lion-O, the heir to Thundera’s Leadership, is given a sword and his duty is explained to him by an aging mentor, who also tells the remaining Thunderans that their duty is to raise Lion-O so that he is fit to lead. There is an emphasis on “duty” which is a key part of an Aryan State, and the Code of Honor of Thundera even reads: Justice, Truth, Honor, Loyalty. This motto can be seen as a version of the SS motto: My Honor is Loyalty (with Justice and Truth implied as the SS was a Police Force when first established). The Sword of Omens that Lion-O receives is reflective of noble themes; knights had specially forged swords which is a custom carried on to this day where military officers often have a sword as part of their dress/parade uniform. The Sword of Omens even has a jewel at the base of the blade, just above the hilt, one that bears the ThunderCats’ emblem, which allows Lion-O “sight beyond sight” – a sort of divine knowledge – that he uses to summon his fellow warriors for help and into battle. This is likely a subtle reference to the Aryan Sun Circle, Greater Knowledge.
Perhaps the connection may be on a purely symbolic level, but I changed my mind on that when I noticed this picture:
The antagonists of the story are known as the Mutants of which there are several brutishly cooperating groups. The leading group are the Reptilians that resemble snakes and lizards. They often use lies and manipulation to get their way, which equates them to the Snake People, a.k.a. Khazars – a violent tribe that was pushed from the steppes of Central Asia to near Europe where it adopted the monotheistic faith of Judaism as a matter of convenience to avoid conflict/maintain neutrality with their Christian neighbors to the West and with the Muslims to their South. Virtually all of today’s Jews (and the Talmud) can be ancestrally linked back to the Khazar Tribe from which all European Jews descend. The Reptilians’ allies are the Simians and Jackalmen, which are rather apt metaphors for many racist Gentiles. Monkeys were often used to convey primitivism in peoples (i.e. in Africans), but also in less offensive uses like the phrase “to go ape” meaning to get very angry for no real good reason, an example of succumbing to natural tendencies, which is essentially being primitive. The Simians here are just that. Next we have the Jackalmen; jackals are animals that hunt and scavenge flesh… a parallel with brutish Gentiles has just been made. Later episodes see the appearance of Vultureman (vultures too scavenge for carrion) and Ratar-o, a rat-like mutant, with real-life rats being creatures most concerned with procreation and surviving and not much else.
Upon landing on Third Earth (where the story’s action takes place) the Mutants come into contact with a demon-like being called Mumm-Ra. His name can be seen as a mistake for Amun-Ra, an ancient Egyptian deity, or even as a plagiarism. In fact, the Jewish Old Testament is essentially one long shameless rip-off of the religion of Kemet, an ancient African Civilization, in addition to other Jewish folly. Mumm-Ra also has a snake symbol, which links him to both the Snake People/Khazars and to Baphomet; his aura is that of a dark spiritual being alone in his chambers, rarely coming out, but frequently barking orders at subordinates while at the same time manipulating them for his own benefit. In short, Mumm-Ra is the fanatical Rabbi, one like Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who puppeteers atheistic Jews and Gentiles (though many may have some superficial beliefs in the Eternal) to carry out his Zionist scheme, which first and foremost involves silencing all Aryans. Mumm-Ra covets the Sword of Omens, which is a symbol of the power of the Swastika, and his main effort to steal it is to slyly convince the Mutants to get it for him so that he can then destroy the ThunderCats. Mumm-Ra’s entire existence can be summed up as “desire for power and hate for all” – the latter even includes himself as Mumm-Ra cannot bear to look at his own reflection, seeing it turns him into a decaying corpse, a vessel with no soul, since he is just that. As long as he doesn’t see this reflection and what he really is, the illusion he projects is so powerful that it even fools himself – self-imposed delusion.
Lastly, there is also a group of Goys, the Brute Men, whose looks can be described as anthro-cattle. The Mutants enslave them and force them to build a fortress. The Brute Men are honest beings, they mean no harm and do no harm, but they are being manipulated by the Zionists. Their salvation comes from the Noble Aryans who free them so that they can live their lives free and in peace. A key idea here is that the ThunderCats see the Brute Men much like the Mutants do, but noble peoples do not enslave under any circumstance.
“I agree with the Jews that most people are cattle. I merely disagree with how they should be treated.” ~John Alan Martinson Jr.
In fact, the ThunderCats at first even politely refuse an offer of help to build their own home base on Third Earth before finally accepting after the offer is insisted upon by some new found friends, the Ro-Bear Berbils.
The most important real world parallel that ThunderCats draws is the conflict with three simultaneous front lines. The ThunderCats are fighting, in effect, two other groups, not one. Mumm-Ra, by his own actions and own choosing, is separate from the Mutants. The Mutants, technically, also have the same stance on the situation. They have joined forces for the sake of convenience, but still operate independently, and wouldn’t hesitate to lash out with betrayal once they felt that they have gained enough. Essentially, the Mutants and Mumm-Ra have on loose terms joined forces just to put off destroying one another until after they achieve their goal of Aryan destruction. Thus each side involved has TWO opponents with the Mutants and Mumm-Ra the advantage of their “non-aggression pact.” However, this agreement is highly unstable and the ThunderCats have the advantage of much more unified movements from their warriors. Less is more when it’s optimized.
Interestingly, the episode in which the Mutants ally with Mumm-Ra is called “The Unholy Alliance.” A most appropriate name for a pact between two nefarious and self-obsessed groups.
Even if Mumm-Ra and the Mutants are seen as ONE group, thus apparently making the conflict two-sided, a third side is still present in the form of unaffiliated Gentile tribes that find their way into the conflict. In episode 6, the Mutants and Mumm-Ra do not appear at all, but a ship of creatures called the Berserkers shows up and immediately does what Gentiles/Jews would do: start exploiting other creatures. The Berserkers attempt to hunt down unicorns and the ThunderCats defend the horned equines despite never having been in contact with them before for. They do not yet stand for the unicorns, but they do stand against what the Berserkers are trying to do to them. The three-sided conflict isn’t about literal front lines, but that of ideas.
Jews/Zionists may possibly ally with Gentiles based on selfish motivation.
Gentile tribes may ally possibly with each other or Jews/Zionists based selfish motivation.
Aryan groups ally based on shared ideals and never with Jews.
The Aryan advantage is that Aryans are also willing to accept Gentiles if their ideals are in agreement, which would actually make them not Gentiles, but actually Aryans discovered from among society’s dissimulation. These new recruits may then go on to join the Aryan Movement fulltime. On the flipside, self-obsessed Jews would never consider taking a Gentile ally into the ranks of Jewry, for allies of the Zionists are really just goys who will be shunned the moment their usefulness to Jewry is over. Thus “allies” of the Jews are just people who have been successfully conned into thinking there is an alliance. Or a Gentile may think that they have successfully conned the Jews into a pact, but such an agreement does not genuinely exist in either circumstance. Mumm-Ra and the Mutants have such an arrangement, both sides are ready to dump the other at the moment most opportune for their own group. The irony is that their in-group altruism is both what temporarily binds them while being the factor that is destined to tear them apart.
Aryans choose allies with whom they genuinely feel that they can work with. Thus the only true alliance is an Aryan one, or simply a noble one. When forming a coalition, Jews and Gentiles agree to disagree. They are sweeping dirt under the rug. When forming a coalition, Aryans agree on ideals, thus Aryans may be forced to only ally with other Aryans, but are also, in effect, already allied with those other Aryans since Nobility is immortal. They only need to make contact another Aryan group and only work out details on who performs what necessary duties, but the alliance is written in their shared nobility. Such is the meeting between the ThunderCats and the caretakers of the Unicorns. Jews would type out contracts and agreements, with exceptions, conditions and interest rates while Aryans just proceed with universalism. An noble group is an ally. An ignoble one is an enemy, be it Jewish or Gentile.
Bits and Pieces
The care takers of the Unicorns have crescent moon shapes on their staffs and star shapes on their foreheads. The crescent moon and star form the main icon of Islam, which includes teachings on animal welfare.
The Sword of Omens is only used to fight enemies and violence is never initiated with it.
The ThunderCats never fight innocents, not even the manipulated Brute Men, but instead break them out of their trance.
There are really many details like this all throughout. Each one by itself really doesn’t mean anything, but as a whole they do form a theme. Another very minute example is when in one scene the Thunder Tank, while in boat form, is going ahead unusually slow, so Panthro, who’s driving, flushes out some sort of intake causing fish that were stuck inside to pop out. Panthro then smiles as he watches them swim away. This may not seem like much, but he did just save those fish from dying and was clearly happy to have done so. Thus, this little moment fits into the overall Aryan theme.
While this remains a kids’ show, it does have levels of comprehension, much like Aesop’s Fables are not just about talking animals. There is a message here that goes well beyond the typical good vs. bad story structure. Much of the message is conveyed through character actions instead of just dialog. There is also a much smaller aspect of fancy aesthetics here than in, say, GI Joe or Transformers. Those shows that not only were totally based in the Good vs. Bad (left vs. right, conservative vs. liberal, etc…) paradigm, but had a strong focus on elaborate military technologies and were packed with explosive action scenes in each episode. ThunderCats is a much smarter example of storytelling since not only kids have something of interest here.
There is also a revamp of the series due out in 2011. We’ll see whether this reboot remains true to Aryanism, or if Jews picked it up to taint and ultimately destroy the memory of this show with their corruption and plagiarism.
