When Tom Riddle entered Hogwarts School Of Magic, he learned that killing people could make him immortal. But, during the First Wizarding War, Riddle’s Avada Kedavra curse, intended to kill Harry Potter in his crib, rebounded and killed Harry’s mother, Lily, and Riddle, himself. When Harry entered Hogwarts school, he became known as the boy who did not die.
He was a killer, but Thomas Marvolo Riddle was scared to die. Riddle wanted to live forever and do whatever he pleased, whenever he pleased. Like other white supremacists, Riddle wanted to master the world and force everyone else to serve him. Riddle called his followers, death eaters because they protected him from death. Like other white supremacists, Tom Riddle believed living forever meant ruling forever.
The Hogwarts Hallows
Hogwarts School taught its students that death was not the end, but a portal into a different existence. Hogwarts ghosts, fearing death and seeking a refuge from the afterlife, taught students that death was not the end.
All Hogwarts students knew the ghost of Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, a 15th century wizard at the court of Henry VII as Nearly-Headless Nick. Sir Nicholas, fell in love with a court lady with crooked teeth. But when Sir Nicholas attempted to use magic to straighten her teeth, his spell backfired and the lady grew tusks, instead and king Henry executed the bumbling wizard. But his fear of the afterlife caused Sir Nicholas’ ghost to remain at Hogwarts.
In addition to Sir Nicholas, students interacted with other Hogwarts hallows, daily. They knew that when the body died and left the physical world, the mind and spirit continued to live in the meta-physical world. After death, a spirit or soul separated concentratesa its energies to maintain its awarness in the afterlife. Awareness in the meta-physical world is aided by the accumulation of memories of the physical world. Happy memories accumulated from a past life creates happiness and bliss in the afterlife; horrible or evil memories create a nightmarish existence in the afterlife forcing an individual to seek any physical form available as a refuge. Peter Pettigrew is an example of someone whose memories force him to flee the afterlife by reincarnating into the form of a rodent.
Tom Riddle accumulates no happy memories. Like Riddle, evil people cannot attain the bliss and peace required in the metaphysical world because they lack at-one-ment [atonement]. At-one-ment in the afterlife is a state of harmony that is achieved when a soul is free of conflict and fears that produces evil.
In Hoc Signo Vinces
It was during the season of Lent, a week before the death of my friend, Father Jay Matthews. I was attending Sunday mass when a young Asian woman slipped into my pew. As she knelt down to pray to the eight-foot effigy of the crucified Christ, the international symbol of evil and death, standing in front of the pulpit where Father Jay would deliver his last sermon, the young woman set down a book, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.
Lent is the season of atonement for good people, but for evil people, Lent memorializes and celebrates the Romans who murdered Christ and created an empire signified by the cross. The twisted cross, the swastika, symbolizes white civilization’s most complete expression of evil and attainment of power. Under the sign of the cross, the Romans pillaged, enslaved and murdered to establish an empire, the hallmark of white civilization.and the benchmark of white supremacy. When Pilate murdered Christ, he served the Pontifex Maximus, the emperor of Rome and the empire’s most revered religious authority.
Christ was not the only Jew or slave the Pontifex Maximus ordered crucified. The Roman consul, Marcus Licinius Crassus, crucified the followers of Spartucus, the leader a slave rebellion. Crassus hung 6000 slaves on crosses, strewn along the Appian Way, from Capua to Rome. When Pontius Pilate raided the Temple of Jerusalem to steal the gold that he needed to build a Roman aqueduct, the Jews revolted. Pilate crucified Jews by the thousands, rebels and non-rebels, alike, creating a ‘forest’ of crosses outside the gates of Jerusalem. In 70 AD, the Jews rebelled again. The Pontifex Maximus annihilated Jerusalem and exterminated the Jews. Paul, the representative of the Pontifex Maximus, Rome’s supreme religious authority, chased the desposyni, the Jewish revolutionaries, down into Egypt, across North Africa and into Europe, delivering them to Rome in chains. The Pontifex Maximux hung Jews on crosses by the thousands. At night, crucified Jews were drenched with Greek fire and used as torches to light the emperor’s gladiatorial contests. In America, cross burnings re-create ancient Rome’s pageantry of evil.
When the white, non-Jewish Christians accepted Rome’s emperor as their master and Pontifex Maximus, they accepted in hoc signo vinces as their motto, as well. The Pontifex Maximus hallowed Roman imperialism and established it as the blueprint for military conquest and fascist rule. m as well as the religious foundation of white supremacy for millenia. Today, the Pontifex Maximus bears the ancient Roman title and his minions hold power in capitals of white supremacy around the world.
Death And Immortality
“But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate we cannot consecrate we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, havehallowed it, far above our poor power to add or detract.” From Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address
A hallow is a ghost or spirit. When Christians hallow something or someone, they sanctify it or make it holy. Abraham Lincoln refers to the Gettysburg battlefield as hallowed ground, sanctified by the killing of thousands. The Roman Pontifex Maximus hallowed Junipero Serra who enslaved, tortured and murdered 300,000 Native Americans. He hallowed John Paul II who delivered Zyclon-B crystals to Nazi concentration camps where millions of Jews were murdered. All Hallows Eve, Halloween, precedes All Saints Day, formerly All Hallows Day, when Catholics are obliged to attend mass. Centuries ago, the faithful dressed as saints on Halloween and paraded door to door reminding all of their obligation to venerate the saints on All Hallows Day, now All Saints Day. Now children dress as demons and evildoers on Halloween and parade about proclaiming their loyalty to an evil society where lies masquerade as truth and racism masquerades as patriotism.
All Hallows Eve and All Hallows Day occur when the season changes from fall to winter and the boundary between the physical and metaphysical worlds is the thinnest. Halloween is the most propitious time for the living to communicate with the dead. Jews celebrate Yom Kippur during the time preceding Halloween to achieve at-one-ment [atonement]. The ritual of Kaparot transfers the sins of Jews to chickens. The more guilty and fearful Jews use Kaparot to transfer the harsh decree of death in the following year, to a chicken. This a clue to solving the riddle of the deathly hallows. As Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts headmaster, tells Harry Potter, help will always be found [at Hogwarts] for he who asks for it. The Pontifex Maximus promises immortality to his followers, forgiving every foul deed he orders them to commit. The Dark Lord forgives the foul and evil deeds committed by his death eaters, promising them life everlasting. And so Riddle attempts to master death, using the cross as his role model and creating his own horcruxes
Horcruxes And The Deathly Hallows
Tom Riddle divided his soul into six parts and deposited each part into a physical object known as a horcrux. Horace Slughorn taught Riddle to create horcurxes using the ritual of murder. “This is purely academic, isn’t it Tom?” Slughorn asked the student of evil, already knowing the answer. But like victims hung on a crosses, the parts of himself that Tom Riddle hung on horcruxes were not immortal; they all were destined to die.
Gaunt’s Ring: Tom Riddle murdered his father and used the ring of his uncle, Marvolo Gaunt, to create a horcrux. When Hogwarts headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, destroyed Gaunt’s ring, he found the resurrection stone, one of the three deathly hollows. inside. Dumbledore placed the resurrection stone inside a snitch and willed it to Harry.
Tom Riddle’s Diary: Riddle used his diary to create another horcrux. He opened the Hogwarts chamber of secrets to allow the Slytherin Serpent to kill Myrtle Warren, a Hogwarts student. When Ginny Weasley, Ron’s sister and Harry’s future wife, entered the chamber of secrets and was petrified by the Slytherin Serpent, Harry killed it and used one of the snake’s fangs to destroy Riddle’s diary.
Hufflepuff’s Cup: One of Hogwarts founders, Helga Hufflepuff, possessed a two-handled golden cup. Hufflepuff’s cup was passed down to a number of her descendants until it came into the possession of Hepzibah Smith, the witch who predicted that either Harry Potter or Neville Longbottom would kill the Dark Lord. The old witch foolishly fancied a much younger man and invited him into her home to see her treasures. Tom Riddle had Hepzibah Smith poisoned and created a horcrux of her two-handled golden cup. When Riddle gave Hufflepuff’s Cup to Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger broke into Bellatrix’s safe deposit vault, stole the cup and destroyed it with another fang of the dead basilisk.
Merope’s Locket: When Tom Riddle’s father discovered that his wife, Merope, was a witch, he kicked her out of their home. Arriving in London, pregnant with Tom and homeless, Merope sold her only possession, a heavy golden locket, engraved with a serpent, a locket that once belonged to Salazar Slytherin, a Hogwarts co-founder. Along with Hufflepuff’s Cup, Hepzibah Smith came to possess Merope’s locket and Riddle stole it, as well. Killing a homeless muggle, Riddle turned the locket into another horcrux that he gave to Delores Umbridge. Harry, Ron and Hermione snatched the locket from Umbridge and used the sword of Gryffinder, which Harry also inherited from Dumbledor, to destroy it.
Ravenclaw’s Diadem: Helena Ravenclaw was the daughter of Hogwarts founder, Rowena Ravenclaw. Helena stole her mother’s diadem and hid it in Albania. Upon discovering the theft, Rowena sent the bloody baron of Slytherin House to bring her daughter and her diadem back to Hogwarts. When Helena refused to return, the bloody baron stabbed and killed her. Tom Riddle was still a student when he persuaded Helena Ravenclaw’s ghost to divulge where she hid her mother’s diadem. Riddle went to Albania, found the diadem and murdercd an Albanian peasant to create another horcrux. Under the pretense of applying for a teaching position, Riddle returned to Hogwarts and hid the diadem in Hogwarts’ Room of Requirement. During the battle of Hogwarts, Vincent Crabbe cast an errant fiendfyre curse at Harry that destroyed the Ravenclaw diadem, the Room of Requirement as well as Crabbe, himself.
Nagini: The Dark Lord Valdemort directed his vicious pet snake, Nagini, to kill Bertha Jorkins, a Hogwarts professor, to create his sixth horcrux. During the battle of Hogwarts, Neville Longbottom sliced off Nagini’s head with the sword of Gryffinder. One horcrux remained ___ one that Tom Riddle was unaware even existed.
Harry Potter: When the Dark Lord Valdemort killed Lily Potter, he unintentionally created a horcrux of Harry, himself. When Valdemort killed Harry in Gryffynder Hollow during the battle of Hogwarts, he destroyed the final piece of his soul. So when the Dark Lord Valdemont announced Harry Potter’s death, he was announcing his own death, as well.
The Hallows Of Hogwarts
But Harry Potter was not dead. Harry possessed the resurrection stone. Furthermore, Harry’s parents, his godfather and even Dumbledore, himself, taught Harry that death was not to be feared. “Does it hurt?” Harry asked his godfather, Sirius Black. "Dying?” replied Sirius. “Not at all. Quicker and easier than falling asleep.” So unlike Tom Riddle, Harry Potter did not fear death.
Like Tom Riddle, white supremacy also fears the world beyond death. The law of physics states that there is no loss or gain of energy. Everything must balance in the physical world and the meta-physical world, as well as. The evil ideology of white supremacy, kept alive far beyond its natural lifespan, knows that it must repay all that it has taken before balance can be restored.
Even now the bodies of America’s victims, unburied after decades of terror, murder and war, lying in heaps throughout the Middle East, Southeast Asia and in South and Central America, are putrifying and pollutung the earth, the waterways and the very air, we breathe. This putrification, along with worldwide pollution from the destruction and destabilization of the environmen, is causing the current pandemic similar to the Spanish flu caused by the putrification oozing from the WWI battlefields that killed millions around the world. Evil has never been immortal and now it faces its fjnality in this world and its at-one-ment in the next..
