Fróði Midjord, originally from the Faroe Islands, is a leading proponent of the Nordic paganistic far right, and made himself a name as a speaker on various European neo-Nazi events. He is also known as host of the far-right Scandza Forum and runs a Youtube channel called "Guide to Kulchur"1, whose shows are streamed on several far-right outlets, such as Greg Johnson's Counter-Currents.
The Scandza Forum started out in the three Scandinavian countries. The first edition was held in Stockholm, Sweden on May 20, 2017, attended by around 120 people.2 Speakers of the first edition included Greg Johnson (USA), Guillaume Durocher (France) and Kevin MacDonald (USA).2
On 1 July 2017, the Scandza Forum organized a conference on ”Globalism vs. The Ethnostate” in Oslo, Norway. This was "the second Scandza Forum event and the first event of its kind to be held in Norway."3 The white nationalist orientation is hardly obfuscated in the event details:
"Since the middle of the twentieth century, the ideology and practice of globalism has fundamentally altered the national character of the entire West. With the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the USA opened its borders, and by the year 2044 Whites are expected to be a minority in that country; in the year 1975 the Swedish Parliament decided that their country was to be multicultural, and with current trends, by the year 2045, ethnic Swedes will be a minority among children born in Sweden. Similar projections can be seen in practically all Western states. But at no point, in these supposed democracies, has the people been asked for permission before their countries have been handed over to immigrants, and in the current discourse, the interests of native European peoples are not even acknowledged to exist."
The list of speakers was announced as follows:
"Mike Enoch, host of the leading podcast radio show in the Alternative Right worldwide, “The Daily Shoah”, and proprietor of the network and Internet forum The Right Stuff. Over the last couple of years, Mike has proven himself to be one of most eloquent and steadfast advocates of the Alt Right.
Greg Johnson, PhD, former editor of The Occidental Quarterly and current editor of Counter-Currents/North American New Right, and author of numerous articles and books pertaining to the destiny of the West. His latest book is In Defence of Prejudice (San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2017). Dr. Johnson is one of the leading ideologists of White Nationalism and the Alternative Right.
Jonas De Geer, prolific writer and longstanding intellectual in the conservative and nationalist movements in Sweden. In the early years of the new millennium, Mr. De Geer edited the successful conservative journal Salt, which was Alt Right avant la lettre. Since then active as writer, publisher, co-host of the popular radio show Motgift (‘Antidote’) and founder of Reconquista Press.
