In the wake of HHH’s previous article featuring Nordiska Asa-Samfundet’s controversial new educator / ‘Blót Manager’,  which detailed a number of racialist & anti-Semitic statements, Nordiska Asa-samfundet announced just this morning that Sibbe Bladh-Hvass (AKA  Carl Z. Grönbohm, AKA Jah Zebi) has been fired from his position and kicked out of the organization entirely.


Saturday 27th May 2017, the council/Rede (Rådet) has taken the unanimous decision to remove Sibbe Bladh from Nordiska Asa-Samfundet. Normally this type of decision should be taken by the elected administrative committee, but in this case, the Rede decided it was necessary, with immediate effect, to remove Sibbe Bladh from Nordiska Asa-Samfundet.

The basis for this decision is based on Sibbe, through social media, has expressed himself in a way that is not in alignment with our Asavisir. Similarly, he has not acted a good representative for the association’s best. The committee along with the Rede have repeatedly expressed what is expected but has been ignored.
As with all representatives, Sibbe has officially signed an agreement to work for the association’s best and that his personal political opinions shall not in any way overshadow his work for the association. When this has time and again been contravened, he has been asked to immediately resign himself from his commitments to NAS. When the Rede discussed this matter with Sibbe, he chose to directly leave Nordiska Asa-Samfundet.
Nordiska Asa-Samfundet works with modernized, reformed Asatro. The focus is placed on belief, traditions, customs and practice. There is no room for racial-biology, demeaning epithets on other people’s background or sexual orientation. Nor is there any room for fixations on skin color and hierarchy based on other attributes.
We accept that we have failed in our appointment and will take this on board in future appointments. This will accompany an internal discussion and we will wait before a new “National Blot Manager” is appointed.
Even if we obviously view these events as saddening, we have been forced to act swiftly and draw the line to show our stance. Before it led to further damage to Asatro as a whole. 

We will now continue to work on and look forward to a fantastic summer and Midsummerblot. 


Despite evidence to the contrary, Carl maintains his innocence. In a public announcement on Facebook, he claimed:

“The NAS has gone out and spread dangerous, life-threatening lies. They are claiming that I am a Nazi and a racist, who believes in White supremacy. This is an insane lie which could endanger my life! I could be murdered by political crazy people…”

These accusations came just a few short weeks after HHH revealed a number of public quotes as well as responses to an exclusive interview in which Carl Grönbohm was shown using a swastika in an ad for his Kindred, praising a group that he himself referred to as Nazis, and stating that he believes Jewish people can never be Swedish citizens. How this decision will impact Carl’s Blótlag remains unclear, though unconfirmed reports suggest that the entire group may have been removed from NAS. When asked about these reports, Nordiska Asa-Samfundet only responded to say that they had no official statement at this time.


While Carl’s claims regarding threats to his life are unsubstantiated, the staff of Huginn’s Heathen Hof feels it’s important to note that we do not condone violence and would never promote its use.
