    Another quote, about the Puritan pilgrims:

    Verily, the Puritans were the only really effective diabolists and decadents the world has known; because they hated life and scorned the platitude that life is worth living. Can you imagine anything more magnificent than the wholesale slaughter of the Red Indians – a very epic – by our Nordic English ancestors in the name of the lamb?

    HPL's racial views carried over into his fiction as well.

    I'm glad to see that there are Lovecraft fans around here. In the introduction of the "Best of Lovecraft" collection it was sourced that he was married to a Jewish woman who repeatedly had to calm him down whenever he witnessed interracial couples walking the streets. She often had to remind him that she was Jewish. Mind you, the author of the preface could very well have been trying to undermine Lovecraft's integrity by twisting his biography to appeal to PC readers. This is common of authors writing about long deceased authors with "questionable" views. It's better for sales.

    Lovecraft is certainly a strange case, if only because he hasn't been as widely condemned in American society as one would expect. I guess his work is just too objectively good for even multiculturalists to nag on him.

    HPL didn't "mind" Jews so long as they fully assimlated into Western/WASP culture.

    There is a quite humorous story that was related by Sonia Greene, HPL's ex-wife, about him coming home one day purple-faced with rage. When she asked what was wrong, she was told that a "n*gger" had sat next to him on the subway!

    Anyone even remotely interested in HPL would do well to read S.T. Joshi's formidable biography of him, H.P. Lovecraft: A Life.

    The Racial View of HP Lovecraft

    I have always been a devoted admirer of Lovecraft, and now after having read this thread topic about the man, I like him even more.

    Thanks for sharing Brother King of the North.

    Read more about H.P. Lovecraft's Racial Worldview in this thread.

    http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=134763

    Mah lawdy, but dey was sum swell high-yaller dawgs paradifyin’ roun’ dat afternoon!
    And it's funny when you read his letters, actually. I'm sure most people when they read or hear about H.P. Lovecraft they think some creepy loner in his mother's attic writing out his most darkest and horrifying thoughts. But, in reality, he was an ordinary guy with a sense of humor that mixed with his real disdain for Non-Anglo-Saxons.

    I'm also curious, since Lovecraft was very passionate about preserving everything "English" could he be considered a Germanic Preservationist?

    I am an admirer of HPL. In fact I am currently reading a two volume biography titled "I am Providence: The Life and Times of H. P. Lovecraft" written by the leftist liberal, multicurualist and author of atheist polemics S. T. Joshi. I despise Joshi as a person but when it comes to HPL he "knows his shit". Recommend set to anyone interested in HPL as a person.

    I always find it odd yet funny that he married a jew being as anti-semetic as he was. I imagine actually getting to have sex played a role in that... He was an interesting character for sure.

    And he married her in an Anglican church for what today would be called "lulz."
