Friday the 13th
The origins of Friday the 13th
Many know or believe that Friday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky—whether leaving skyscrapers without a 13th floor or not—though few know why. I remember watching the Sean Cunningham slasher-flick when I was but a wee lad. I daresay that it was during once such viewing that I first got lucky! Jason Voorhees and the once adorable Betsy Palmer aside (who unluckily died this year), it may be well worth pondering, both the meaning and metaphor of Friday the 13th as it comes around this year—especially whites who are being increasingly alienated from their history and culture. Indeed, this may well be a Friday the 13th for the West in general.
Friday the 13th in Religion
It is not only the end of the workweek (“TGIF!”) when many people prepare for a night of debauchery. Possibly alcohol-fueled exchange of bodily fluids, or 40% of men wait for their women to “bring home the bacon.” Still, the sixth day for religious Jews to prepare for the Sabbath, for which they happily pay a premium in kosher foods (ghastly though such practices are), preserving their identity and culture. At the same time, gentiles consume the garbage and pornography produced for us on Netflix or generally the Internet.
Happily, for Jews, much gentile semen is spilt “coming” to nought on Fridays (“LGBT!”), whether in circle jerks on or offline, rubbing one out, dignified same-sex marriages, or in “good ole’” coitus interruptus, with, or more likely, without protection. If an unseemly conception occurs with an ever rarer heterosexual tryst, the ill-named Planned Parenthood is ready and waiting, fully funded.
Friday is like Sunday in Christianity or Saturday in Judaism, and a day of worship for Muslims; and it’s traditionally Hangman’s Day for Englishmen! That is, as we wind down, for now, or forever, they are just getting things started (again) as may soon be the case in most of Europe, with memory as long as an ISIS’ sword.
The name Friday comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ; that is, the “day of Fringe,” and “Great Balls of Fire!,” a whole lotta friggin’ go on Fridays, across the board, resulting in lucky, and not-so-lucky conceptions—some consensual, some not: though such niceties are glossed over by holy writ, as is the case of the Koran or Rolling Stone Magazine. Nevertheless, the difference between Freyja and Frigg in German myth is unclear, but don’t tell Wagner or Wotan.
For Christians, of course, Friday is both lucky and not, as Jesus was crucified and died on that day, i.e., “It is finished.” Even these days, the stock market is closed on Good Friday, it being unseemly that usurers ply their trade on the day our Savior died, much to the chagrin of Jews, and many gentiles, to be fair, though made up for by “Black Friday” when they recoup the difference and watch people trample each other underfoot for good measure in the process. Another lesser-known Black Friday, in 1869, Gould and Fisk cornered the gold market. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose!
It stands to reason that venereal disease most likely has its highest rate of transmission on Fridays (though Thursday is gaining speed), associating the Old English goddess Frigg with the Roman goddess Venus, known to the Greeks as Aphrodite. Even Wagner forced his hand, making Tannhauser ultimately choose a comely maiden over the goddess, for what it’s worth. Few are conscious of the Nordic pantheon as the days of the week tick down to Friday, as they are unconscious of the fast approaching dusk, thanks to benzodiazepines, SSRIs, porn, alcohol and television.
Wikipedia incorrectly states, in my opinion, that triskaidekaphobia (Greek for “fear of three and ten”) is attributable to the presence of 13 people at the Last Supper, which true, was a necessary means to an end, and a common misunderstanding. More importantly, and relevant to us today, Katharine Kurtz (whose name shouldn’t necessarily reflect her historical credibility, given her tribe’s imagination) recalls:
The Knights Templar and Friday the 13th
On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren — in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered excruciating tortures intended to force “confessions,” and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at stake.
The media would have us believe that such accounts are apocryphal or Da Vinci Code type nonsense (as most results on the Internet attest) not to be believed, in keeping with their double standard of “never forget,” justifying Palestinian occupation. In contrast, multiculturalism and immigration have gone mad for the rest of us.
However, in September 2001, a document known as the “Chinon Parchment” dated 17–20 August 1308 was discovered in the Vatican Secret Archive. According to this document, misfiled by a sacerdotal librarian with easy access to communal wine, no doubt, in 1638, “Clement absolved the Templars of all heresies in 1308 before formally disbanding the Order in 1312.”
Moreover, “The current position of the Roman Catholic Church is,
“[T]hat the medieval persecution of the Knights Templar was unjust, that nothing was inherently wrong with the Order or its Rule, and that Pope Clement was pressed into his actions by the magnitude of the public scandal and by the dominating influence of King Philip IV, who was Clement’s relative.”
Interestingly, on a more sinister note, the Baphomet, the now traditional symbol of Satanism, appeared within this context. This fact dovetails quite nicely with another: Vikings believed that Loki was the 13th god in the Norse pantheon. Loki, a Luciferian Promethean figure, has also been associated with Satanism, the spiritual elements of which are broadly known as the left-hand path.
We should note that the papacy persecuted the Knights Templar because it perceived their power as a threat to an increasingly corrupt church. It’s high time that we become more sinister and as is our right to embrace our history. As Jewish comedian Woody Allen said, “History has to repeat itself because nobody was listening to the first time around!” Friday the 13th? They never forget. Islam hasn’t. So why should we?
Happy Friday the 13th! Maybe you’ll get lucky!
