Besides writing pagan and even evolutionary-type stories and other disgusting things including the blasphemous “Tomlinson”, Rudyard Kipling, is perhaps most famous for The Jungle Book and the poem “If”. He was born in India when it was a colony of the British Empire and was sent to live with an aunt in England for schooling at the tender age of 6. At 12 he went to a boarding school where there was apparently cruelty in the form of bullying from other students as well as beatings from the teachers. He later defended this abuse as necessary to the character building of future leaders of Britain. Defending the abuse of boys, as a way to build character for future leaders may seem bazaar, yet when Kipling’s life philosophy is examined it comes into focus clearly with the things that he stood for.
Rudyard Kipling firmly turned his back on his family heritage. Both of his parents had Methodist preachers for fathers and Kipling himself said, “Three generations of Wesleyan ministers…lie behind me.” With this family background he had no excuse for not knowing what was right. His rebellious spirit presented itself when at the young age of 17 he refused his parents’ offer to send him to university and instead returned to India to work for a newspaper. This was hardly a place for a boy of 17 in those days. Having turned away from the things God had done and shown his forefathers his famous poem, Recessional, can only be labelled an abomination in the sight of God. Kipling travelled and lived in various places, including the United States where he met and married his wife. His relationship with his in-laws again brought to light his true character when he had a quarrel with them that was so spiteful and fierce that he and his wife left the States and would never even visit the U.S. again.
He became an Imperialist during the course of his life and actively promoted the idea that Britain had a calling to spread its Empire throughout the world and in particular into non-white areas. His writings encouraged and helped the Imperialist movement in England. He made several visits to South Africa, in part to report on the Boer War. South Africa was a hotbed of white supremacy in those days, and his Imperialistic views became decidedly Fascist. This found its way into his writings, which affected his popularity.
I didn’t find any reference of his meeting, or sitting under the teaching of Cecil Rhodes directly. However, he is claimed to have been a disciple of the degraded H.G. Wells who wrote of “the New Republic” in which he reportedly said that useless population would be killed with no conscience. As a follower of Wells Kipling is said to have believed that Fascism was a way to control the world. Due to the fact that he was in South Africa before Rhodes died, and that he was himself an Imperialist, becoming more rabidly so after these visits, it is obvious that Rhodes’ white-ruling-race doctrine affected Kipling.
Add to all this wickedness the fact that Rudyard Kipling took as his personal emblem the Running Cross, which later became Hitler’s swastika, and you have a complete picture of this vile man’s nature. The Running Cross is an ancient pagan symbol that shows up in India, South America, and perhaps other places. Judging by this choice, as well as the political views of the man, the over all picture is one of a true son of Belial. No child, especially in a Christian home, ought to be reading this man’s writings. They are most certainly poison for the brain and heart.
