(note: not all Asatru or Odinist are hate or extremests groups)
A study by a Swiss expert of right wing extremist groups.
GARDELL: There are really three positions: the militant racists, the nonracists and, in between, a third, "ethnic" position. .........
GARDELL: The racist position has grown tremendously fast in the last four or five years. The militant racists today probably make up between 40% and 50% of Odinists and Asatrúers. And I would say the anti-racist position makes up another 30%. And the remainder goes to the ethnics.
We are talking about somewhere around 40,000 people in the militant racist position. More than half of young people coming into the racist right are now pagans. Young people are not being drawn in by Christian Identity. Racist paganism is the most important radical religion today.
