| Lord of the Rings actor upset over “anti-immigrant, Islamophobic” populists using his character “Aragorn” in a meme

Jihad Watch : “Hollywood celebrity Viggo Mortensen has expressed his displeasure
after Spanish populist party VOX created a meme using his portrayal of
Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings films.”
Aragorn is a heroic character played by Viggo Mortensen in the
popular movie Lord of the Rings, and lets be realistic, he did not write
his own script, nor is he anything (evidently) in real life, like his
admirable character Aragorn who stood for good and battled evil. Mortensen (for what little it should be worth) stated about VOX:
“Not only is it absurd that I, the actor who embodied
this character for Peter Jackson, and a person interested in the rich
variety of cultures and languages that exist in Spain and the world, is
linked to an ultra-nationalist and neo-fascist political party…..It is
even more ridiculous to use the character of Aragorn, a polyglot
statesman who advocates knowledge and inclusion of the diverse races,
customs and languages of Middle Earth, to legitimise an anti-immigrant,
anti-feminist and Islamophobic political group.”
Most ridiculous of all is Mortensen’s complete dismissal of the origins of the The Lord of the Rings. J. R. R. Tolkien, was the scholar who wrote the epic novel. He was a devout Christian who reportedly fell into despair “especially
toward the end of his life, as he took account of the world situation”.
In 1969, he wrote: “The spirit of wickedness in high places is now so
powerful and so many-headed in its incarnations.” When one notes the
global jihad, along with the abuses sanctioned by Islam, such
“wickedness” in its current-day “incarnation” would surely have
adversely affected Tolkien. His own country of ancestry betrayed
innocent victims by covering up Muslim rape gangs which brutalized up to a million young girls, in the UK’s quest to promote “diversity” and avoid being deemed “Islamophobic”.
The current state of the EU since the flood of Muslim migration has
rendered parts of it no-go zones, and many other parts to be unsafe.
Catastrophic abuses are routinely committed in accordance with the
Sharia on a mass scale which would have surely been rather upsetting to
Tolkien who cared about humanity. Tolkien once said that The Lord of the
Rings “was a deeply Christian and Catholic work.”
It was Tolkien who converted his friend who was an atheist to
Christianity– legendary fellow scholar and author C.S. Lewis.
known, “Christian stories
heavily influenced the Narnia books”, which resulted in the box office
hits “The Chronicles of Narnia” that grossed over 500-million.
Western globalists have surrendered its fine Judeo-Christian roots to
Islam. Despite the exhausted arguments which condemn Christianity for
its history of forced conversions during the Crusades, and for
oppression and colonialism, such actions are not and were not sanctioned
by the texts of Christianity which preach peace, human rights, equality
and love. Even so, Western nations have evolved and have corrected such
past wrongs, while Islam continues its violence, supremacy, and abuse
in the name of its religion.
It is Judeo-Christian democracy that
advances equality for all, human rights, diversity, peace and tolerance,
not the sharia. Mortensen will do well (along with his fans) to educate
himself and recognize the exceptional role he played in his character
Aragorn, which was created not by him, but by the hand of the gifted,
Christian J.R.R.Tolkien; a character which exemplifies the fight to
maintain Western freedoms.
In the creation of the Aragorn (not Mortensen) meme, VOX chose an
ideal character. Although Mortensen claims to support diversity and
inclusion, he has not learned that normative Islam is antithetical to
both at its roots. “‘Lord of the Rings’ Actor Viggo Mortensen Complains After Spanish
