2014 American Renaissance Conference

AR Staff, American Renaissance, April 28, 2014

MB State Park
A weekend of fellowship and commitment.

April 26 dawned as a brilliant spring day in Montgomery Bell State Park just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. It was a perfect beginning for the more than 150 people who enjoyed the inspiring talks, fellowship, and conviviality of the 12th American Renaissance Conference. A band of scruffy “anti-racist” protesters was just the seasoning to make it a recipe for a perfect weekend.

Group

John Derbyshire

The first speaker was columnist, author, and noted China expert, John Derbyshire. His talk was a fascinating introduction to China and its relations with the United States. He first pointed out the remarkable cultural stability China has enjoyed over a history that may be as long as 5,000 years—if one accepts accounts of semi-mythical early eras.

A striking aspect of China’s national character is conformity, which may be a naturally evolved trait or could have been the result of generations of Chinese rulers systematically killing off anyone with a rebellious streak. Mr. Derbyshire explained that many Chinese proverbs praise conformity and fitting in, as in “The tallest tree in the forest is the first to be cut down.”

Mr. Derbyshire described the early period of Chinese immigration to the United States, which brought mostly manual laborers. Their alienness and their willingness to work for low wages led to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. This essentially put a halt to Chinese immigration until 1943, when the United States found itself allied with China in the Second World War, and a policy of exclusion was an embarrassment. Even then, quota restrictions limited Chinese immigration to just a few hundred people per year.

The new immigration law of 1965 that abolished nation origins quotas did not immediately lead to a large Chinese influx since the Mao regime let no one out. Immigration began to rise in 1979 with the establishment of relations between the US and China, and picked up greatly after the Tiananmen Square protest of 1989 led to a relaxation of visa requirements. Nearly four million Chinese now live in the United States, of whom more than half are immigrants.

Curiously, a large majority of immigrants come from just one part of the country. In 1970, more than 60 percent of Chinese immigrants were from a single county—Taishan—in a single province: Guangdong. This highly localized immigration continues to this day.

Mr. Derbyshire noted that China has unabashed ambitions to be a superpower, and that it acquires our technology by every possible means. It is fashionable among wealthy Chinese to send children to American universities, where many are deliberately absorbing scientific information that will be useful back home. The Chinese government also runs a huge intelligence-gathering effort in the United States that encourages immigrant and naturalized US citizens alike to pass along classified and corporate-confidential information. This human espionage is now heavily supplemented by computer espionage.

Mr. Derbyshire explained that many Chinese are astonished at the access we give them to our country, and by our willingness to give up so many places in our elite universities to Chinese. China will continue to cultivate its power in all domains and will not be sentimental about any nation or people in its path.

Douglas Whitman

Professor Douglas Whitman of Illinois State University gave an illuminating talk on evolution and the biological reality of race. He began by noting that evolution is constant, and that humans are evolving more rapidly than ever. We have evolved into differentiated groups by exactly the same process as all other species: As soon as one groups splits from another into a new environment, it begins to adapt to that environment.

Prof. Whitman explained the Ninety Percent Rule for determining whether a species is composed of a number of different subspecies–in the case of humans, these are called races. If the members of two or more separate groups are mixed together and a layman can accurately sort them back into their original groups with an accuracy of at least 90 percent, then the groups are distinct subspecies. By this standard alone, human races obviously exist, and DNA evidence can further distinguish human subspecies with 100 percent accuracy. As Professor Whitman noted to much laughter, “Anyone who denies this is a slimy Marxist or a complete idiot.”

It is true that 99.5 percent of the genes of every human are the same. However, the human genome is composed of three billion base pairs, which leaves 15 million base pairs—the remaining 0.5 percent—that produce the remarkable differences we find between individuals and groups. Prof. Whitman pointed out that a difference in a single base pair can make a person a dwarf, albino, blind, deaf, or cause any of thousands of diseases. These 15 million base pairs are more than enough to produce striking and consistent racial differences. The result is “tens of thousands of evolved traits that correlate with racial differences.”

Douglas Whitman

Prof. Whitman also pointed out that the only genetic difference between men and women is one chromosome out of 46. Men have a Y where women have an X—and yet the differences between the sexes are enormous.

Our government, explained Prof. Whitman, takes great care to keep all animal subspecies safely in their separate environments. As an example, it is against the law to take an American Kangaroo Rat of one subspecies out of its home environment and put it into the environment of another subspecies because of the noxious effects of displacement and mixture. Needless to say, the government has no such concern for human subspecies.

Prof. Whitman emphasized that molecular biology is bringing new discoveries every day that underline the reality and significance of race. “Science,” he said, “proves that we are right, and that those who deny race are wrong.” There is even increasing evidence that the cherished “out of Africa” theory is wrong—that modern man may well have evolved outside of Africa and then migrated back to Africa.

Evolution resulted in races that Prof. Whitman called “supreme in their environments.” Eskimos are adapted to cold, and Africans are adapted to heat and to African disease. Europeans appear to have been adapted for creativity. They invented the modern world, as well as safe, prosperous societies. It is no surprise that other races want to come live with us and take part of the bounty that their ancestors could not have created.

The great message of evolution, noted Prof. Whitman, is that groups are not equal. We have spent trillions of dollars vainly trying to bring people of all races up to the material level of Europeans. “Race matters, and truth matters,” he declared, and it is high time we accepted the truth rather than hide behind pious lies.

Jack Donovan

Jack Donovan, author of The Way of Men, and a prominent figure in the “manosphere,” opened his talk by emphasizing his love of diversity—genuine diversity—and pointed out that the people who claim to value diversity are actually destroying it.

He emphasized the role of global capitalism in stripping us of identity and turning us all into interchangeable consumers. Big business is interested only in profits, and the more similar we are, the more easily it can sell us the same mass-produced junk. There is no conspiracy to shear us of our local identities; short-sightedness and greed explain it.

Jack Donovan

Jack Donovan

Global markets are created by dissolving local loyalties. “Loyalty of any kind limits your options,” Mr. Donovan explained, “and once there are no social or legal obstacles to disloyalty, it becomes profitable to trade loyalty for opportunity. Discrimination then becomes the only dirty word.” We may lament the effect of all this on our own societies, he said, but should remember that every society is being deracinated. As people everywhere lose their cultures, all that is left are folk dances and ethnic costumes.

The only way to create anything authentic, Mr. Donovan explained, is to discriminate–to say “This is for us and not for everyone. This is who we are and what we are about.” He explained that culture is the product of identity and of separateness, adding “I’m here to celebrate diversity and the only honest way to celebrate diversity is to make sure there is real diversity left to celebrate.”

Philip Craik

Philip Craik gave what is undoubtedly the first public presentation in the United States by a spokesman for Orania, the all-Afrikaner enclave in South Africa that was established in 1990. Orania was the brainchild of Carel Boshoff, an Afrikaner intellectual and son-in-law of South African Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd. In his view, white minority rule was immoral and black rule was inevitable, but when black rule came, Afrikaners would need a home of their own.

Mr. Craik spoke in detail about the legitimacy of the Afrikaner claim to that home. He pointed out because the initial Dutch foothold dates back to 1652, European settlement in Southern Africa is nearly as old as it is in North America. The centuries that Afrikaners have been on the continent have given them genuinely African roots and a genuinely African identity.

Philip Craik

Philip Craik

Mr. Craik described the heroic Afrikaner trek into the empty interior, where vast areas had been depopulated by Zulu campaigns of extermination against their tribal enemies. Mr. Craik movingly recalled the Battle of Blood River, and the vow that the Afrikaners made to commemorate that day if God would deliver them from what seemed to be certain annihilation at the hands of 15,000 Zulus.

The concept of Orania, Mr. Craik explained, originated in what was called the Afrikaner Freedom Foundation, which evolved into the Orania Movement. Its founders bought a rundown, abandoned town that had been a camp for construction workers building the Vanderkloof Dam. Orania has since grown to a population of about 1,200 with its own infrastructure and schools, and thrives on farming and light industry.

Another 10,000 or so Afrikaners are members of the Orania Movement and hope eventually to live there. There is plenty of land; the bottleneck is housing. One of the fundamental principles of Orania is that all labor must be performed by Afrikaners, so construction takes time.

Orania is only a municipality and not a sovereign state, but the South African government has granted it considerable autonomy. It can set its own requirements for residency, and it has its own currency, the ora. Mr. Craik noted that it is the only municipality in the entire country that is not in debt. There is essentially no crime in Orania so the town has no police, though in the future some kind of security force may be needed should there be encroachments from outside.

As part of his presentation, Mr. Craik played a video that is available here. It is an inspiring tribute to a group of whites who are determined to take their destiny into their own hands.

John Morgan

John Morgan, director of Arktos Media, spoke on what the West can learn from nationalist movements in Eastern Europe. He began his talk with vivid descriptions of the commitments to nation and identity that he recently saw. He said he was deeply impressed by the passion and commitment of the Maidan protest movement in Ukraine, of people who came from all over the country to fight a corrupt government and build an independent Ukraine that will not be a vassal to either West or East. Thousands of ordinary Ukrainians gave up their homes and comforts and lived for months in tents.

In Kiev, at the height of the uprising, Mr. Morgan addressed the Ukrainian nationalist political party Svoboda. It is a party that fights for traditional values and stands against liberalism, communism, and immigration. Svoboda wants to return to what was before both Communism and Western liberalism. When Mr. Morgan spoke to the group, the police could have come in at any moment to beat the protestors. “It was inspiring,” he said, “to be at the nerve center of a revolution in progress.”

Mr. Morgan, who lives in Budapest, also spoke of attending a rally sponsored by Jobbik, one of Europe’s most dynamic nationalist parties and now the second-ranking party in Hungary. The event was frankly “extremist” by Western standards, and on a scale that would be utterly impossible in the West. Thousands of Hungarians, burning with passion for the survival of their people, filled an entire stadium, and there was no hint of protest.

John Morgan

John Morgan

Jobbik has been a remarkable success. When it first ran candidates in 2006, it won less than 2 percent of the vote; now it wins 20 percent. Jobbik wants Hungary to leave the EU, and to concentrate on local economic development. It supports traditional values of the kind expressed by Julius Evola and René Guénon. Mr. Morgan noted that one has to understand this kind of traditionalism to comprehend statements by party leader Gabor Vona about his party’s solidarity with Islam. Mr. Vona is recognizing that all traditional religions are enemies of liberalism, not saying that Hungary should become Islamic or encourage Islamic immigration.

Mr. Morgan noted that the Iron Curtain kept many of the poisons of the West out of the East. The effects of liberalism are beginning to be felt, especially in the cities, but Hungarians still have a firm foundation of identity, culture, and religion.

In this sense, said Mr. Morgan, Hungarians are far more fortunate than Americans, and he wondered about the prospects of basing a movement merely on race, without the support of a more specific identity. He noted that the identitarian movement in Europe is the closest thing there to racial solidarity, but it, too, is rooted in nation.

Mr. Morgan raised the possibility of finding solutions through culture rather than politics. He finds that the cultural vigor of the West is passing from the Left to the Right, and that ideas that are actually traditional can today seem revolutionary. If, by remaking the culture, we can inspire people and give them the attachments they crave, we may be able to create a subculture that can transform society without necessarily passing through politics. Arktos Media, which offers traditional/revolutionary philosophy, art, poetry, and religion, is a valuable and promising step in this direction.

Adrian Davies

Adrian Davies, a London barrister with a long record of activism, spoke about the prospects for national movements in Western Europe. He first mentioned that the absence of free speech in Europe can actually be an advantage for Europeans because criminalizing the most loutish forms of racial consciousness means that spokesmen must always be civil.

Europe has other advantages: It is much easier to get on the ballot. To stand for the British Parliament, for example, a candidate needs the signatures of only 10 backers and a cash deposit of £500—which is returned to anyone who gets more than five percent of the vote. Many European countries also have limits on campaign spending, which means smaller, dissident parties are not so easy to crush. Some have proportional representation, which opens the political system to smaller parties.

Of all the European countries, Mr. Davies believes that France has the most promising party that stands for ethnic identity, tradition, and national culture. In recent local elections the National Front took over the governance of 13 municipalities, and it has a good chance of winning more delegates than any other party in the elections to the European Parliament that will take place on May 22.

Adrian Davies

Adrian Davies

This is a remarkable comeback for a party that was reduced to just nine percent of the vote only a few years ago, and Mr. Davies attributed much of this success to the leadership of Marine Le Pen. He believes she has rejuvenated the party she inherited from her father without sacrificing fundamental principles. Another source of the party’s success is the miserable performance of the Left. François Hollande, the Socialist president, has record-breakingly low ratings, and the Communist Party has become the champion of immigrants. The National Front has thus been able to make deep inroads into the working classes that used to be a Leftist preserve.

In Britain, Mr. Davies sees little hope for the British National Party (BNP), which, he estimated, has no more than 10 percent of the support it had only five years ago. It has been completely eclipsed by the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), which Mr. Davies described as a vastly more successful version of the Tea Party. UKIP started out as cranks obsessed with the evils of the European Union, but has broadened its message to oppose immigration, and this has increased its appeal. As in France, the traditional Left has become associated with immigrants and is hemorrhaging votes to a party that Mr.Davies says “has completely replaced the BNP as the party of protest.”

Does UKIP have the potential to become a party that represents the interests of whites or will it be co-opted? Mr. Davies argues that even if it is co-opted, it will be at the price of opening the country up to a debate on immigration that is more realistic and fruitful than anything that has been possible since the time of Enoch Powell.

Elsewhere in Europe, Mr. Davies sees the Austrian Freedom Party as a standard bearer of the right that, like the National Front, could actually take power.

RamZPaul

Paul Ramsey, the video blogger known as RamZPaul, gave an after-dinner talk that cannot be summarized. It was filled with jokes that kept the audience in stitches but was also—by some miraculous alchemy—a serious talk about the searing critique of progressive egalitarianism that is known as The Dark Enlightenment.

Mr. Ramsey traced the development of egalitarianism, beginning with Martin Luther, and continuing through Oliver Cromwell, the American and French Revolutions, the Second World War, and the fall of Communism. Democracy is the ultimate political expression of equality. Democrats and Republicans may hate each other, but they agree on that foolish idea. They may have different explanations for black failure—the demoralizing effects of welfare as opposed to “racism”—but they agree that the races are equal.

In the religion of progressivism, white guilt has taken the place of original sin. Progressivism punishes heretics by making them outcasts and taking away their jobs.

RamZPaul

RamZPaul and Jared Taylor

Mr. Ramsey pointed out that all the Right ever does is adopt the Left’s cast off clothing: Republicans now say Martin Luther King was the greatest man who ever lived. Mr. Ramsey joked that in years to come, when the left starts proposing polygamy and marriage with animals, Republicans will be fuming about “the sanctity of gay marriage.”

He also joked that Ukraine has lost tourists because of its political troubles. It is therefore developing Chernobyl as a tourist attraction: “Just like Disneyland, except that the six-foot mouse is real.”

Mr. Ramsey scoffed at the idea of equality: of races, of sexes, of individuals. He also scoffed at the idea that masses of unequal people can vote for wise leaders. Elected bureaucrats are temporary office holders who loot the country while they are in office. A monarch, on the other hand, owns his kingdom and wants to pass it along in better shape to his heir, so he has a real interest in its long-term health.

Humans, said Mr. Ramsey, are naturally hierarchical. The more able invariably lead the less able. Equality is a myth, he said. “I could more easily believe in leprechauns than in equality.”

Jared Taylor

Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, spoke on the subject of race in “post-racial” America. He reminded the audience of the giddy excitement with which our rulers heralded Barack Obama in 2008 as the prophet of post-racial America. Of course, “post-racial” America is no different from before: non-whites work diligently for the interests of non-whites—and so do whites.

Mr. Taylor gave examples of the absurd sacrifices whites make for non-whites and asked, “can you imagine anyone of any other race going insane in quite the same way?” He then speculated on why whites are so easy for others to put to work for alien interests.

He spoke of the extreme individualism of whites, and also of their unique concern for the interests of others. This concern takes the form of the institutions that are the hallmarks of Western society: freedom of speech, rule of law, respect for women, good sportsmanship, public charity, concern for the environment. These things show a high regard for the interests of others—not just other people but for other species and for unborn generations that will live on our planet.

Jared Taylor

Jared Taylor

Mr. Taylor argued that this concern for others has been disastrously perverted, and now requires whites to believe it is their duty to sacrifice their homelands and cultures to other races. He argued that if we are to change the minds of whites, we must realize that we are trying to overthrow the liberal moral paradigm, and that to be successful we cannot simply be right. We must be generous. Arrogance or mean-spiritedness will only drive away our fellow whites and confirm their prejudices about us as selfish, wicked people.

Mr. Taylor concluded with an appeal to duty—that duty is the message we read in all the great achievements of our civilization, in the faces of our sons and daughters, and on the tombstones of our great-grandparents.

Sam Dickson

Sam Dickson, who has brought every American Renaissance conference to a close, began by saying how much he has come to distrust individualism. He quoted Kipling: “the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.”

Mr. Dickson decried the lie of equality that continues to rule the entire white world. Our enemies who promote the lie cannot yet send us to the gulag, but they certainly wish they could. Nevertheless, he said, “the truth exists independently of whatever lies our rulers tell, and the truth is much more accessible than ever before.” We have made huge gains in the number of organizations that tell the truth, and in all the media that disseminate the truth. Truth will prevail over falsehood.

Mr. Dickson argued that ever since Jefferson wrote the words “all men are created equal,” America has been marching to the tune of the lie. Everyone from President Obama to the Tea Party agrees that we are all equal, all pursuing freedom. They all believe the same myth of “progress” that is in reality the destruction of everything that makes life worth living: the bonds of heritage, culture, folkway, tribe and race.

Sam Dickson

Sam Dickson

Instead of this fairy tale about America, Mr. Dickson explained, “we need our own narrative founded in the flesh and blood of our people, and in the basic reality of life. We start with the biological fact that we are members of a family and of a larger extended family that is our race.”

He added that “all Europeans are part of our family and we must recognize that each has a role to play in the defense of our civilization and our race.” Russia, which our rulers demonize, is our natural ally. It has never fought a war with us or ever claimed any of our territory. Yet we have surrounded it with a hostile ring of “allies”—some of the nearly 130 countries with which we have foolishly bound ourselves by treaty.

“What we are saying will ultimately prevail,” he said, adding:

We are here to give life to the dead, speech to the dumb and sight to the blind. To give life to people who have had everything stripped from them. To give speech to the white working classes that cannot speak for themselves. To give sight to the blind who have been blinded by lies.

We have happy, meaningful lives despite our persecutions and losses, he added, because we are part of the real narrative of a real people. Mr. Dickson concluded by asking the blessings of God on our white family all over the world and especially on those who are willing to fight on behalf of our race.

Demonstrators

At 4:00 p.m. on April 26, we were greeted by a delegation of protesters. A dozen waifs waved signs and chanted, while the park police kept them in a small plot away from the conference. It was like going to the zoo; we marveled at the antics of what might as well have been an alien species. They could not have been a more striking contrast to the vision we have a healthy society. They are, indeed, the reverse of everything we are fighting for, and the sight of them sent us on our way home more inspired than ever.

    Anti-racists” are so boring these days! They can’t even come up with some new, not endlessly repetitious phrases.

    C’mon ragtags – Your dopey parents were at least a tiny bit creative! The only thing that’s different is that these ragtags have exchanged a VC (or NVA) flag for a gay flag.

    And 45-50 years later, can’t you even afford something more than cheap, recycled cardboard protest signs?

    C’mon people – step up your game!! You’re really disappointing this guy (who was one of millions of guys) who was the target of your (phony, sniveling, cowardly) ‘wrath’ all those decades ago.

      It seems that the “Hey, hey! Ho, ho!” chant comes out every year.

      Very sad.

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        I burst out in a hysterical laughter when I heard them saying that, because it sounds so ridiculous and feeble-minded.

    • LovelyNordicHeidi

      The old stereotypes about racists make more sense if they are applied to anti-racists. The stereotypes that people have about us are libtardly biased.

    • BillMillerTime

      A slogan, exhausted, should never be repeated!

    • melissa236

      I am extremely jealous and will make it next year for sure!

  • Capt. Bryant

    Reading about and watching Jared Taylor videos is something we should encourage more people to do. I would also highly encourage even more people to attend these annual conferences I not only was impressed by Mr Taylor but of all of the people in attendance. The caliber of the other speakers was impressive and informative. I have to say the last speech by Mr Sam Dickson was most encouraging. I would ask all who read and post here to talk with people in your lives about American Renaissance. Please follow Mr Taylor’s advice and keep it civil in language and action so as to not fall in to the other sides preconceived notions. Gott mit Uns!

    • LovelyNordicHeidi

      I am very willing to refer people to AmRen, but I am afraid that they will feel highly uncomfortable with the frequent anti-Black rants and the infrequently occurring calls for genocide of non-Whites.

      I think that the latter is more of a problem than the former, and it is one of the main reasons I am not so enthusiastic at the moment about inviting my reasonably race-aware or conservative friends or acquaintances to AmRen.

      If that changes, I will invite them.

      But, as long as this site contains information that is too advanced for beginners and comments that would make any newcomer shiver, I do not want to expose my friends and acquantances to information that they are yet unable to deal with.

      I have to admit. What I am saying sounds weak, but I seriously cannot afford risking my friends to be scared back into radical liberalism. I will try to educate them a little more, and might read some AmRen comments to them in order to see their reactions.

      It will, however, be easier if AmRen becomes more beginner-friendly so that I do not need to go through such time-consuming procedures to determine whether my real-life friends and acquaintances are ready for AmRen.

      • Martel

        The articles are not of much use to newcomers, as they are completely random. I send people to the video section, or try them to purchase or otherwise obtain books. The Amren comment section mostly attracts those already informed to a degree, or “race realist” veterans”.

        Send your friends this Heidi, tell me when you got it then i will remove it:

            You have to learn how to sell these things. Never claim you fully agree with something(or come across as such), just state something is interesting. Just a tip which works 99% of the time with me.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I’ll say: “This book is challenging. You should read it and think about its propositions. It will be interesting for a discussion.”

          • Martel

            Whatever fits your personality. Its all about creating an interest, not jamming it down someone’s throat,a mistake I made hundreds of times in my youthful excitement. Just keep in mind, always take care of yourself first. The game will be won regardless, build a network of friends around you who understand or who be loyal regardless.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            I have already converted them a little bit. I take baby steps to convert people in real life. I think that being a woman gives me a slight advantage when it comes to converting people. But, I am always very vigilant, because you never know, they might gossip about me. My best friends would never do that, but I am not too sure of my acquaintances.

          • Martel

            Baby steps are the way to go. Its good to use your femininity too.

      • Martel

        “I have to admit. What I am saying sounds weak, but I seriously cannot
        afford risking my friends to be scared back into radical liberalism”

        Its not about being weak, taking care of your personal needs, that is, maintaining friendships is quite important. You cannot be an unhappy warrior, to borrow a phrase from paleoconservatives.

      • TL2014

        You raise very good points!
        Use subtlety. Drop hints here and there. Casually mention the latest black-on-white atrocity in your area, without going into the racial aspect beyond just identifying racial background of perp and victim. Then sadly shake your head and move on to another topic.

        I’m in the process of converting others by using that strategy.
        Best of luck to you and keep up the morale! Truth will prevail eventually!

        • Mahound

          I have found that just pointing out that whites will become a minority in time (without going full out white rabbit mantra) will really make most white people, including liberals, start questioning immigration and “diversity”. They might not come around during the debate, but if approached in a calm factual based manner, they will think about it and do their own research in time.

          • Geo1metric

            That is also my best segue into a race realist talk or to getting someone interested in racial issues.

            I love to tell a young couple to “have at least three children or they will not be “replacing themselves”, and that that is why Whites are dying out around the world. That ALWAYS gets their attention.

      • http://tmasierrahills.blogspot.com/ tma_sierrahills

        Fully understand. Someone below said the articles are random, but your selection of them does not have to be. You can refer people to the ‘original article’ and later, if they become a full-fledged race realists, to AmRen. Yes, we should be civilized, but when you read article after article about the horrendous grisly crimes committed against our people, including women, children and the elderly, sometimes by packs of attacking blacks while they are laughing and joking, it will lead to some people here letting off steam. I can only imagine what a black, Hispanic or Muslim solidarity website would sound like if Whites were robbing, raping, murdering and demographically erasing them at the rate that Whites are being gleefully thrown into the vibrant ‘rainbow’ wood chipper.

      • FozzieT

        Very good post. I don’t believe that what you are saying sounds weak at all. It’s more important to be effective. And sometimes that means subtlety. Or humor.

        I think what I most admire about Jared Taylor, is the characteristic I also admired about Reagan: the Happy Warrior aspect. Mr. Taylor has the rare ability to communicate politically incorrect truths in a positive fashion, without anger, bluster, or other negative traits that tend to turn people off.

        I think those of us race-realists would do well to emulate Mr. Taylor. We could be quite effective in “Conservatism, Inc.” forums if we could adopt his positive, polite, high-class manner in our posts. Attracting bees with honey instead of vinegar, and so forth.

        • Nancy Thomas

          I just can’t imagine even the wimpiest stupidest moonbat being afraid of Mr. Taylor, since he is so obviously well meaning and sincere. Some libtards are hopeless, of course, and will screech the r word with barely any provocation. Best to avoid people like that.

      • Anna Tree

        I would advise first to watch videos of Mr. Taylor on youtube. You are right that for starters, the comments here could be strong. But the selection of articles are a so great wake-up call, maybe tell some about the site but warn that the Amreners are a diverse crowd, like in all blogs or newsportals.

      • tlk244182

        Doesnt sound weak to me at all, but merely a realistic fear of driving people away at a time when we need all the support we can get. I resolve from now on to consciously consider the impact my comments might have on the un-convinced but ‘open-minded’ visitor. In my own case, I was already over the hump by the time I ventured onto Amren, which is, to my taste, pretty tame. And I always understood that any movement, not just those on the Right, is certain to have its share of vicious, unstable psychopaths. The fact that the world hates various men it now associates with the ‘Right Wing,’ does not deter me from appreciating the value of Traditionalism or the necessity of taking sides in this decisive philosophical struggle.

        I think that expressing my desire for my children to go to an all-white school openly to other moms is my only really open heresy to those who do not yet see. I espouse this desire regularly. I generally say that it may be racist and unfair, but when it comes to my children I don’t care.

        My only important job in this life is making the most succesful offspring I possibly can, and going to a school where the resources are not all diverted to the “disadvantaged” is in their best interest. They are also less likely to be exposed to a multitude of things I attempt to keep then sheltered from like drugs, violence, and young sexualization. Where the experiences of my children are involved, I am unapologetic.

          I suspect her last name is Beirich. I base this in part on her divisive comments attempting to focus on what genetically divides whites from country to country rather than putting the focus on the common enemy that threatens all whites no matter where they live, in part on the effect she has on others, but mostly on the way she attempts to dominate the flow of conversation, make demands, argue like a Pharisee, et cetera.

            I think that anyone who claims to be a white nationalist should spend more time naming the Jew and less time trying to sow division among whites by emphasizing what divides us rather than the common enemy that should unite us.

            You never thumbed up a single comment I made critical of Jews or Israel (and there were a lot of them). You followed me and still do so that means you read every single one of those comments and decided not to thumb it up. All the rest you typically thumbed up. Hasbara will never ever support accurate criticism of Israel or Jews and, coupled with your divisive posting history, as well as the fact that you almost only ever post here (a controlled opposition site) marks you as a likely hasbara.

            The truth works wonders, but people have to be open to it. In general, people are far too brainwashed to be able to climb out of the very deep hole without some experience with diversity that shocks their system into common sense, say a robbery or a rape or maybe the loss of a job to a minority.

          • oddball1776

            I have found, particularly with younger friends, that hitting this from a ‘conspiracy theory’ perspective works really well.

            If you develop guru/sage status with them they trust you and what you say (if they see you regularly and accurately predicting the outcome of events/incidents etc).

            You can then slowly work them round to highlight the real culprits – ‘oh dear, them again – every, damn, time’.

            They then see the pattern. They cannot deny you are right. You are breaking through their brainwashing and planting the seeds that will enable them to recognise the tactics used against us and start thinking for themselves.

            This process takes years.

            You don’t necessarily create an insta-Stormtrooper – but you can start the ball rolling, and at least release someone from their shackles.

            Later on they will see something on the TV and they will remember you and they will say – ‘wow, oddball told me about this all those years ago and he was right – perhaps he was correct about the rest of what he said’.

            I have never had, and will never have any ultra Lib friends – they repulse me – so in some regards I have an easier target market.

            I have found many amongst the younger generations to not be as ‘lost’ as we assume. They are aware that something is incredibly wrong – they have looked into the Icke/Alex Jones type of info for answers.

            They have not found them.

            Anyone that can connect the missing dots, without fear or favour, will get a hearing at that point.

        • Martel

          The post is not ridiculous, most people struggle with how to convince their friends into tolerating or accepting their views, its an incredibly important question, if solved, would change the status of white nationalism forever. We are getting there though.

          • Nancy Thomas

            I agree that it’s hard to get through to people, yes. I do not agree that this site is “radical” in any way. The comments are heavily moderated and civility is assured. Yes, if moonbats come here to visit they’re going to get upset most likely, but I don’t see what can be done about that.
            Liberals are brainwashed nutcases. For instance, I’ve been trying to school a liberal friend on immigration, and he keeps throwing the usual MSM/LaRaza rhetoric about how illegals will be good for social security and illegals will help the Catholic church, blah blah, ignoring that illegals steal work from our most vulnerable citizens, cost us trillions, do horrible crimes, and will destroy the cultural fabric of the nation.
            You have to realize that we are competing with a mainstream media that is viciously anti-white and screams race baiting rhetoric all day and all night. And our political class is bought off and anti-white as well.
            That’s why I have decided that the only fix is violent. I’m not advocating violence, don’t misunderstand me, but I don’t see a way to fix these problems in a peaceful way because the system itself has become anti-white.

          • Martel

            The current political regime is becoming increasingly immune to democratic antidotes, there is little doubt about this. What you have to keep in mind, is that the term ”white” is basically a pejorative, I believe it was Mark Steyn or Gavin McInnes who wrote that without cameras present and an active blogging community rancher Bundy would have been dead by now, especially after his comments on slavery. The general public would not care about a group of white nationalists massacred by today’s militarised police. Image is key. I do not advocate violence either, too be clear. I’m not a pacifist, but there are still possibilities for alternative measures. It has become clear to most rational individuals, that the hopeful notions of the sixties have turned out false, the coming five years should not be wasted in making a change.

        • DaveMed

          There used to be a fellow here named Spartacus who made numerous comments suggesting violence against other races.

          Her concerns are absolutely legitimate.

          • Nancy Thomas

            I’ve been around here for a couple of years and I don’t recall anyone advocating violence. However, i do believe it’s going to come to that.
            As i said before, this site is heavily moderated. I’ve had quite a few posts removed and i don’t set out to offend.
            Of course the moonbats would shriek if they come here. Moonbats are taught to hate themselves and all white people, so ANY hint of white advocacy and those nitwits are going to freak out. I don’t see that there is anything that we can do about it, except hope that they get gang raped by diversity.

          • DaveMed

            When I first discovered AmRen, it was a bit shocking to me.

            I can’t recall exactly what happened, but I think I would peek in here once in a while, get kind of freaked out, and take another peek every few days or so.

            Gradually, I got used to the concepts being discussed.

            It’s all about helping guests feel at ease.

      • LHathaway

        The comments can become a little self absorbed and self-centered, sometimes with acronyms I don’t understand and I’ve been reading the news here for 6 or 7 years or so. We sound like far leftists at times, same haughty (and hateful?) attitude. It seems it’s become more of an echo chamber with Disquss (but you can get feedback right away). Maybe it’s fun for some and sort of a struggle against the leash, and sometimes even the brash comments Are funny on occasion.

      • DaveMed

        I couldn’t agree more with you.

        Before posting here, people should spend a moment thinking about the tone of Jared’s videos and writings.

  • Cannot Tell

    I’m very happy to read that the 2014 AR conference was a success. I didn’t expect anything but positive reviews.

    There’s something that has confused me for a little while. It seems as though many race realists attribute the decline of the West to individualism and praise collectivism and conformity in East Asians. But isn’t that what made European societies superior? Individualism and creativity is what distinguishes whites from East Asians and gives them an edge to invent and innovate. Am I misunderstanding something or do many race realists despise what has made whites great?

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

      That was the matter of substance I was going to comment upon, but since you’ve already broken the ice…

      I think Mr. Dickson’s point is that individualism should not be, but has become, a destructive cult. He’s not saying that individualism shouldn’t exist, nor that we should all become collectivists, much less adhere to that in a cult-like fashion. What I think he is saying this that individualism (“the wolf”) and collectivism of like kind (“the pack”) should be complementary viewpoints that dynamically work with each other in service to the tribe and the people of the tribe.

      • Kenner

        There’s individualism, and then there’s atomization, the kind the ACLU promotes to effectively erase the concept of the common good.

      “But isn’t that what made European societies superior? Individualism and creativity”

      Yes, especially when we were mostly amongst ourselves, but for decades now these traits have been cleverly used against us.

    • Anna Tree

      Good of the nation vs personal choice. There is limit to both, a balance should be seek or it is chaos and pain. I think some cultures, i.e. some races, think first about society, while others think about the individual. It seems as in many examples, that N-E Asians are in the first group, while blacks are in the second and as usual whites are (or were!) somewhere in the middle between the two.

      I think whites have embraced individualism too much in the last decades. The dangers increased because we became less homogeneous as well and for example trust and unity have decline as a consequence. We have broken the status quo and I think the delicate balance between” the need for order and the imperative to change”: (From Michael Crichton’s The Lost Word)


      “… complex systems [show] certain common behaviors. [... those seem] to arise from the spontaneous interaction of the components [...] therefore called “self-organizing.”

      [...] “two are particular interest to the study of evolution. One is adaptation. We see it everywhere. Corporations adapt to the marketplace, brain cells adapt to signal traffic, the immune system adapts to infection, animals adapt to their food supply. We have come to think that the ability to adapt is characteristic of complex systems – and may be one reason why evolution seems to lead toward more complex organisms.”

      [...] “But even more important,” he said, “is the way complex systems seem to strike a balance between the need for order and the imperative to change. Complex systems tend to locate themselves at a place we call ‘the edge of chaos.’ We imagine the edge of chaos as a place where there is enough innovation to keep a living system vibrant, and enough stability to keep it from collapsing into anarchy. It is a zone of conflict and upheaval, where the old and the new are constantly at war. Finding the balance point must be a delicate matter – if a living system drifts too close, it risks falling over into incoherence and dissolution; but if the system moves too far away from the edge, it becomes rigid, frozen, totalitarian. Both conditions lead to extinction. Too much change is as destructive as too little. Only at the edge of chaos can complex systems flourish.”

      He paused. “And, by implication, extinction is the inevitable result of one or the other strategy – too much change, or too little.”

      I think that there is a need of a balance between individualism and collectivism. How much individual freedom vs. health of a society is the question… In my opinion “radical personal freedom” doesn’t trump every other issue, that be gay marriage/adoption, extreme religious dogmas, one full generation deciding to bring children only at age 35+, dangerous people on the loose or the epidemy of lewdness in our universities etc.

    • LHathaway

      “Individualism and creativity is what distinguishes whites from East Asians and gives them an edge to invent and innovate”

      That edge is called ‘racism’. The more the media reports on people of color crying about their woes and the more we see boat people desperately climbing to our shore, the more each of us unconsciously feels superior. The more the Tim Wise’s rail about supremacists and white privilege, the more he acts to create people who feel they are privileged (if only on an unconscious level). Whites are always oppressors or at least privileged, all of them. Women and people of color are all victims. To make sure the pill goes down anyone complaining about being white in any way is punished – they’re just misinformed – they just don’t have a nuanced view and understanding of all the suffering women a people of color go through – or aren’t close enough to them, or somehow calm enough not to be afraid of them! And having the wrong view is fit for punishment, so we learn the lesson.

      As far as individualism vs solidarity, Mr. Taylor and AmRen seems to identify with a more right wing ideology, here. Is that a more individualistic past? What was the perfect path of our forefathers? How do we return to it? Personally, I’m not scared of something new.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

    One of these years, I’ll actually get to come.

    I was steaming because I first thought that if only AR was one weekend later, I could have come. As it turns out, I won’t be untied from the ball and chain of my state’s capital and its current legislative session for at least one and maybe two more weeks. So that makes me feel a little less bad.

    I’m also happy to find out that the know-nothings of the other side and their big protest were a big flop.

  • sbuffalonative

    A striking aspect of China’s national character is conformity, which may
    be a naturally evolved trait or could have been the result of
    generations of Chinese rulers systematically killing off anyone with a
    rebellious streak. Mr. Derbyshire explained that many Chinese proverbs
    praise conformity and fitting in, as in “The tallest tree in the forest
    is the first to be cut down.”

    I can see how this would make a nation and a people stable and able to sustain itself for a long time but it does have the disadvantage of stifling innovation and advancing civilization.

    So we can see that the Chinese have had a long run but after paper and gunpowder, they had few technological breakthroughs.

    • bilderbuster

      After gun powder was invented they weren’t very creative with it.

    • Kalashnikov

      Some of the ancient Chinese inventions give the distinct impression that the Chinese weren’t the actual originators. A society capable of inventing gunpowder should be capable of doing something more useful than fireworks with it. The Chinese were still using matchlocks in the late 19th century! It certainly looks like there was an unknown party that seeded them with knowledge.

      • LHathaway

        hehe, I suspect all of our ‘inventions’ were created by the Chinese. So sometimes it’s humorous to me when I read these stories about ‘Chinese espionage’. If this is true or not, right or wrong, these are all just more news stories, if not invented (likely so) then spun in a way as to influence the public.

        Sadly, I’m just ‘racist’ enough that I don’t often suspect it’s black scientists who invented everything.

          Yes, it makes perfect sense that the people who as recently as 100 years ago were a bunch of half starved subsistence farmers were actually the progenitors of the modern world. Yeah…

  • jeffaral

    Mr Dickson points out that Russia has never been at war with “us”, by that meaning America. Wasn’t then the Cold War a “war”??!! Then again if by “us” we mean Western, European society then it becomes glaringly evident Russia, in its former incarnation as the Soviet Union, was a deadly enemy to civilised society. Now we have (Ras) Putin showing his true face, crushing down Ukraine and supporting Central Asian immigration to promote the new Eurasian Empire.

    • David Ashton

      My take on events in Ukraine is rather different, as also on the view expressed here in defense of Vona’s comments on Islam. However, let us all try to retain an effort to obtain accurate and comprehensive information about current events, along with the predominant principle of encouraging solidarity among the white peoples whose ancestors created a great civilization.

      • jeffaral

        Jobbik’s Gabor Vona supports Islam, but it’s worse than that: He is a proponent of Turanism, a cultural and racial movement aiming to unite all Turkish people across Minor and Central Asia. He calls turks his brothers and sisters, and believes Gengis Khan is a role model for uniting all Asians; it’s similar to Alexander Dugin’s Eurasianism. Would be interesting to know to what extent this Turanic-Eurasian crackpot idea is popular in HUNgary.

        • Martel

            Warum sagen Sie das nicht, damit wir an die Wurzeln des Problems gehen

            als Rassismus.«

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            We are constantly being told in Germany that anti-Turkism is a sign of a fundamentally damaged culture. We are supposed to be cultural Nazis or something of that sort. People really feel bad about speaking up for our interests. It is supposed to be a sign of Nazism if we show any signs of willingness to advance German interests or even concerns about our future.

            It’s really insane, in a way. We must never forget that 6 million jews died. And then we must happily import 6 million more people who may not quite be German. Those in charge of this aren’t remembering too well. . . The fact that you are still fundamentally unenlightened is of no consequence, and nothing to worry about, for, good people are in charge now and nothing could ever go wrong.

            In America, we must say (to be considered a decent person) this is a very racist society and people of color suffer because of it. The only solution, is to import more people of color!

            They must not really believe what they say or they wouldn’t support this. It has to be some kind of colossal lie.

            No matter how many whites move away from diversity, for whatever reason, no one ever asks if whites are moving away because they are victims of racism at the hands of non-whites and they want to avoid experiencing more. I guess asking that question would lead to the ovens. . . perhaps it is an ideological straight jacket with no way out. . .and yet. . . one day just that will happen, most likely. What is happening to whites will matter. In my opinion, that day can only be delayed, not prevented.

            lol, leftists will discover white men can be victims too. Leftists must destroy white men, too. But there will be no left wing solutions for whites or white men. Yes, one day the smart people and the leftists will get on board with us. I suspect the train, filled with us all, will move in a right wing direction. Who knows, though? Maybe, leftism, and not just leftists, will save us. I’m open to either.

      You’ve been conned by the mass media. The situation in Ukraine is complicated. In some areas where Russian ethnics predominate, as in Crimea, people are generally pro-Russian. In other areas they want more independence from Russia. Unfortunately there have been incidents where Russian ethnics have attacked Ukrainian speakers, and places where Ukrainian nationalists have attacked Russian ethnics. I don’t see Putin as stirring the pot any more than the Western powers are.

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      Even with Putin’s faults(at least the ones I see in him), I believe he is a more sincere leader and cares much, much more about his country and its people/culture/identity than any current “leader” being propped up in the West.

    Did Mr. Derbyshire explain why Chinese immigrants are from that one county? Interesting.

    • geralddmartin

      That one province is Guangdong, on the southeast coast, which had the longest and strongest trading & shipping contacts with the West. (For a number of reasons, including the early established Portuguese enclave of Macao, & the British seizure of Hong Kong during the Opium War in 1842.) Most of the rest of China was closed to foreign trade until late in the 19th century. Its capital Canton (now Guangzhou) was the main trading port from which emigrants departed to California after the Gold Rush began in 1849, and Guangdong became the feeder province for this and later migrant streams for these reasons. (If I heard him correctly, Derbyshire has doubts that this province still accounts for so much of Chinese immigration into the USA, but that’s what official figures claim.)

    I was there, and I can confirm that it was a great meeting. It was my first time attending, and it hopefully won’t be my last. It was wonderful to be surrounded by other White people who were realistic about race, but weren’t kooky about it (I did meet one person there who I’d consider a kook, but I’m not completely certain he was for real, as he came off as a walking stereotype). It’s hilarious to compare what they think of us to the reality as seen from the inside. Almost everyone I met there was simply a normal person who wasn’t motivated by hate, but by a healthy, natural love for their people. I wish everyone understood that we aren’t anti-other races, we’re just pro-our race.

          At the beginning maybe no comments, as it requires more work/time, just links to news, mainly from Europe but also from other white countries and else, like Amren does. Links can be sent to the site to help the editor like in Amren. Of course there will be the same sections, including the books and videos, so Jared Taylor and other racialists’s message are advertised and on sale. All articles will have to be in English and in their original language too of course, until there is more volunteers and a button to some translations can be added (then those will become Deutsch Renaissance, Renaissance Francaise, Rinascimento Italiano etc!!).

          Here, ‘anti-discrimination’ laws are used to ‘promote’ certain groups but they really seem to have one thing functionally in common: discrimination against white men.

    • MekongDelta69

      What I love is b/c these lunatics have all these pre-conceived notions about us, they expect us to all look like Darth Vader (or whatever they’re imagining); and then when they see us, they get this quizzical look on their faces as if they’re thinking to themselves, “Wow – look. They’re wearing suits and ties. And they’re not goose stepping.”

      It would snow them to realize that 99+% of us are the same/similar faces you’d see on any White block in any neighborhood. We don’t bother anybody; we don’t force our views down anybody’s throats; we want to be left alone – BUT, if you mess with us FIRST – then don’t be surprised that we don’t fold like a cheap suit as all leftists do.

      • Alexandra1973

        They fear decent-looking and -acting people like Mr. Taylor, I believe, because they don’t conform to the “racist bedsheet-wearing KKK” stereotype.

        Your average Joe sees that the stereotype doesn’t fit…so he wonders, could anti-racists actually be wrong? And that’s what the egalitarians don’t want. They want people to just blindly follow them.

        As I’ve said before, they’re “safer” if your average Joe thinks people like us are a bunch of raving loonies.

    • WR_the_realist

      If you met a true, knuckle dragging racisss that was probably the $PLC plant, trolling. There’s one at every Amren conference.

      • Truthseeker

        That was my suspicion. The way I see it, he was either a plant or a genuine nutjob.

      • Alexandra1973

        They have to keep the stereotype going.

  • LovelyNordicHeidi

    The only way to create anything authentic, Mr. Donovan explained, is to discriminate–to say “This is for us and not for everyone. This is who we are and what we are about.” He explained that culture is the produce of identity and of separateness, adding “I’m here to celebrate diversity and the only honest way to celebrate diversity is to make sure there is real diversity left to celebrate.”
    ——————————————————
    I love people who are racially like myself and I really want those racial look-alikes to live in the same country as me. While I love racial homogeneity, I also love human biodiversity when it stays in far-away countries so that I can see and study it in National-Geographic-style documentaries, but liberals have hijacked the concept of diversity for their social experiment (or genetic modification project if you will) that is going to result in the Euromongrelisation and race replacement of the traditional peoples of the West. My love for human biodiversity is reduced by the day as my own ethnicity and race are being threatened with gradual extinction through miscegenation and race replacement. If current trends are not arrested, Whites will first become a critically endangered racial minority, and soon thereafter Whites will go extinct, like the Dodo bird and the Gothic language.

    • jeffaral

      Always spot on comments Heidi.

  • RebelliousTreecko

    RamZPaul’s talk about Republicans sounds spot on. Can’t wait to see videos about it.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    This was my 4th conference. It may have been the best. Montgomery Bell State Park is a beautiful location with lakes and trails all about if one is a walker. The speakers may have been the best ever. The attendees were of a high caliber, many with exceptional knowledge and experience. An impressive younger contingent is growing.

    It was good to renew acquaintances, exchange ideas with knowledgeable people and make new connections.

    Bonus: The dwindling numbers of protestors were kept by the park rangers at non-disruptive distance out on the greenery. They were not a factor. In fact, they were hardly noticeable, even when one was outside walking about. They were never allowed near the building.

    My little conference twist: I find that about a week before a conference, watching the DVDs of the previous year’s conference gets me ” up to speed,” so to speak. It puts me in a thorough-going conference “frame of mind.” It’s also a good excuse to review some great presentations. It’s one more benefit of conference week for me.

    Good event!

    • Martel

      How was RamzPaul?

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        He was funny and was substantive in equal measure. A great performance! He was very good.

        • Martel

          Great to hear, I always enjoy his videos.

        • geralddmartin

          IMO RamzPaul’s speech – presentation – performance was a masterpiece, the best of the conference. If we could show it on a major television network AR would get a million new supporters.

  • Brad Griffin

    IMO, the counter-protest was the highlight of the event.

    There is much more on video. I hope more of it will be released soon. We ought to pay these people to come and provide entertainment for us.

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      For your sake, I hope that isn’t true. Did you really go to build meaningful networking or just to antagonize and poke fun at the anti-Whites?

      • Brad Griffin

        As I explained in my article, I went for lots of reasons.

  • Snakes on a Car

    I think its a good thing that none of the AMREN people went outside to engage them, based on what I’ve been reading. Progs do get off on irritating non-leftists because they are defective narcissists. By not giving them any ‘entertainment’ they end up spending an hour or two screaming at the side of a hotel building. It has to be very demoralizing.

    • blight14

      Oh, one of our group DID wander outside to engage the ruffians……I won’t name names but it REALLY disappointed the park rangers, who were fully on our side. I spoke to the rangers in private 30 minutes or so after ‘someone’ breached protocol and hopefully there was no lasting damage.

      • JohnBeattie

        Very ignorant of whoever tried to provoke the multicult idiots outside. He put himself on their level, plus endangered the whole plus atmosphere with the park rangers, etc.

        • Brad Griffin

          If this is the incident that I saw, Matt Heimbach had wandered out the door to take a look, and a communist in the crowd yelled out to him, “Hey Matt, how is your face?”

          He smiled and responded, “It’s good. Jesus loves you.” Then someone in the crowd said, “Jesus hates you.” Then the park ranger intervened and that was the extent of it.

          • Snakes on a Car

            My first choice would have been to not go outside but “Jesus loves you” has to be a close second to dealing with the progs.

        • blight14

          Correct John…..Several of us discussed the matter with the park rangers, I’m sure we got the antics of ‘Mr Showboat’ resolved.

      • CourtneyfromAlabama

        I have my own assumptions of who it may have been :) . What a great conference this was! I hope everyone made it home safely with all the weather.

  • TL2014

    Sounds inspiring, indeed!
    People may be waking up faster than it looks. Give Barack and Eric just a few more years to do their damage, and the backlash from hell may actually materialize. Let us hope.

  • FozzieT

    Great photo of the 9 presenters at the AmRen Conference. Truly some of the bravest folks in our country, putting themselves out there in person, as opposed to those of us who hide behind our avatars in comments sections.

    I’ll be there next year. Keep up the excellent work!

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    It sounds like the conference went very well! I wish I could have been there, but it was not possible this year. I’m also glad to see how few protesters there were; I expected more, and I expected better slogans from them. It’s refreshing to see they had so few supporters.

  • Garrett Brown

    When will video/audio be available for purchase?

  • blight14

    A great conference indeed…..it was nice to see the ladies and gentlemen of Amren yet again….B

  • Barbara Cornett

    I clicked the link to see the video Mr Craik presented and got gmail???

  • Alexandra1973

    So when is AmRen going to have a conference in, say, the Cleveland area? Or even Detroit; I could bunk out at my mom’s.

    • Anglokraut

      Parma might be a good place for that, assuming that the Poles and Italians still hold the land. Go too far east or west and the libs start coming out.

      • Alexandra1973

        I’m not too far from Parma. However, I noticed that Parmatown Mall (which I’ve visited) is on the dead malls list, so you have to wonder about Parma’s demographics.

        • Anglokraut

          Parmatown Mall never recovered after that White mother was kidnapped from the parking lot, and found murdered. When was that? It was in the late 90s, because I was in high school when it happened.

        • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

          Parma would be good, or Salt Fork State Park near Cambridge. Mohican State Park would be another good spot

    • Garrett Brown

      Why on the world would they ever go to Detroit or Cleveland? That would be very ignorant. The answer would be never. The ony reason they’re able to do this is because its in a free state.

      • CourtneyfromAlabama

        It kind of reminds me of when people complain about the constant “Southern bias” in this movement portrayed by the likes of Political Cesspool, CofCC, and/or the fact that Jared Taylor likes his conferences mostly in the South lately. Instead of complaining, perhaps we should be a little harder on the blue state parts of the county that aren’t putting any effort to create their own branches to the movement. I guess it is easier to just sit and complain about how the Southerners in the movement only want to do things in their own states, and/or show regional pride on their websites (Jared Taylor is descended from Confederates in case anyone is wondering).

        • Garrett Brown

          Really, don’t ask why amren isn’t in your state. Ask your communist state why they won’t allow amren.

          Nothing against you Alexandra, but you need to move!

          • Vladimir Purishkevich

            Create a strong “Friends of American Renaissance” groups in your area and you too can have conferences, I would expect.

          • Garrett Brown

            Not in heavily blue or even middle leaning states.

          • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

            Chicago had one for awhile.

        • Rurik

          I was very glad for an excuse to visit the South. I was amazed and surprised to find myself passing through heavily White areas, not totally swamped by The Diversity. It restoreth the soul. This is a benefit of travel. Next year I intend to plan for a little more time to visit some of the battlefields.

      • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

        The Burbs and outlying areas around both cities are full of proud, racial realist Whites

        • Garrett Brown

          Full of? Maybe a hundred in total if you’re lucky. And if you’re such a proud realist why live in an anti white state?

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      That will probably happen when states like Michigan and Ohio become more like Southern states such as Tennessee, meaning when they have governments willing to support this type of meeting at a state park.

    • Danimalius

      Having conferences at this park in Tennessee simply works. More time can be spent on planning for a better, livelier conference instead of having it rotate around the country every year. Perhaps eventually there will be conferences by other organizations in that area of the country, but AmRen is accomplishing too much good at the moment with how they have set things up to change it.

  • David Ashton

    “Cross-party campaign to brand Ukip as racist” (The Guardian, April 29) – Barbara Roche a prime mover (surprise, surprise!). This will prove counter-productive. My own personal ideological sympathies are closer to the pig-farmer’s than the city-trader’s. However, we need a shift of the log-jam.

  • Kathleen Moore

    I am so happy to hear about Orania! I was heartbroken when I recently learned about the Boer War, and the horrors inflicted upon the modern Afrikaners. I am so glad someone has had the decency and common sense to try to give them a new homeland.

    I went to the 2013 AmRen Conference. Depressing waste of time. Never again.

    • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

      That doesn’t help to explain anything or give any merit to your opinion. Specifics.

      • 1gravity

        Please see my response to Alexandra1973.

        • http://www.awpn.net/ Celestial Time

          Your response was worthless. Why bother to complain about something when you can’t even explain why you call it a depressing waste of time? I don’t think anyone expects or would even want an essay about your life’s journey to and through AmRen 2013. Just spell it out, spit it out, or start throwing up shadow puppets if that’s your thing. How about charades? Sounds like…..

    • Alexandra1973

      So what did you find depressing about it? Details.

      • 1gravity

        Providing details, or an explanation, would require more space than works for a reply. If the AmRen moderator would offer to publish an otherwise acceptable article, on why I found the 2013 AmRen Conference a depressing waste of time, I will provide that article within a week.

        The alluring photo shown at the top of this article is emblematic of what I would say. The photo shows the outside of the dining room, which overlooks a lake in which people swim, boat and fish. The photo is taken from a steel frame catwalk which travels from the Conference facility to the edge of the lake. The paint on the steel frame, and around the heavy bolts securing the outdoor staircase descending to the lake, is peeling in sheets. This maintenance need has evidently been ignored for years. The manner of peeling suggests defects in the original application of the paint. If that paint is lead based, the recreational potential of the lake is at serious risk.

        And so it is with AmRen, if you follow my allegory.

        ,

        • Rurik

          Wasn’t there last year, but this year … My mileage varied.

        • Andross

          Sounds like you have something insightful to say. Why not explain why the Amren conference is such a depressing waste of time? What is this metaphorical lead that’s “poisoning the lake”?

  • JohnEngelman

    This is an excellent summary of the various talks.

  • JohnEngelman

    If one wanted land and soil in Europe, then by an large this could only have been done at Russia’s expense.

    - Adolf Hitler, from Mein Kampf, Volume I, Chapter IV “Munich”

    As for the ridiculous hundred million slavs, we will mold the best of them to the shape that suits us, and we will isolate the rest of them in their own pig-styes; and anyone who talks about cherishing the local inhabitant and civilizing him, goes straight off into a concentration camp!

    - Adolf Hitler, from Hitler’s Table Talk

    The Soviet Union was a pan Slavic federation that took Russia and other Slavic nations from semi feudalism to the space age. It also prevented the Nazi effort to reduce Slavs to a Helot population that would have been gradually reduced in number in order to make room for Germanic settlement. At least 80 percent of casualties of the German military happened on the Russian front.

    Joseph Stalin’s methods were harsh, and he made mistakes. Nevertheless, it is not clear to me that a humane leader could have prepared Russia for the German invasion.

    • WR_the_realist

      As a mass murderer every bit as bad as Hitler, I think Stalin could have been bested in the defense of Russia by any of a dozen different czars. The Ukrainians were treated so badly by Stalin (deliberate mass starvation in the early 30s) that many of them greeted the invading Nazis as liberators.

      • alex

        Nicholas II who was ruled by his German born wife, who in turn was under influence of Rasputin, did really well in WWI…

      • JohnEngelman

        Alexei Romanov had hemophilia. In addition, I do not believe he was very intelligent.

        Alexander Kerensky and Nikolai Bukharin were too humane to industrialize Russia in time for Hitler’s invasion.

        Leon Trotsky demonstrated his military competence during the Russian Civil War. Nevertheless, he was ill-suited for an international war. He would have kept expecting the German working class to rise up and overthrow Hitler.

      • JohnEngelman

        What you say is true.

        Nevertheless, the Soviet Union needed to industrialize quickly in order to produce the weapons that were necessary to defeat the German invasion.

        Stalin did achieve that. It is not clear to me that a more humane ruler could have.

    • LHathaway

  • Nancy Thomas

    Altruism has been our downfall. Lock and load.

    • Andross

      This isn’t a criticism, but the “lock and load” approach may just as well scare people away. What the anti-whites fear most is a bunch of “racists” that don’t look like the stereotype of “violent, ignorant, and scary” that they’ve concocted. Jared Taylor and Ramzpaul are probably the two best models for how we can be the most effective. Cheerful, articulate, rational, and polite. The protestors at this year’s conference were a poignant contrast to that by all accounts.

      • Nancy Thomas

        I’ve been WN for a long time, and an anti-amnesty activist for a long time. To make a long story short, it’s going to take violence to fix these problems. Sorry if the truth is hard to swallow.

        • screaminjay

          Reactionaries do not believe in Revolution.

          You know why the French Revolution occurred? Free-trade capitalism made the grain trade across national borders. Women went down in the street complaining that the State (King) was taking the bread out of the mouth of their children. Revolution ensued a few years later, the King had lost his mind… or is that head?

          The American Revolution in truth was also started under a false pretext. This is the bitter pill for Americans to swallow. You just had to first control the French to then make unreasonable demands to the King. The Declaration of Independence does include a grocery list of hyperbole and excessive rhetoric. Go beyond the first few lines.

          Then you can go back to the Glorious Revolution and the creation of the Bank of London, now we’re back to the XVIIth century. Root causes. Whig History.

          We’ve had enough revolutions. It doesn’t improve things. That’s the harder truth that is harsher to swallow. Blue Tory or Ancien Régime folks (I’m French Reactionary) are the definitive historical conservatives. They’re against liberalism period. Not merely against some sort of excesses of liberalism, but against the pale humanism that stands as the defense mechanism of liberalism. The one that believes “obscurantism” is everything that occurred before “Enlightenment”. You know, Human Rights and all, Liberté Égalité Fraternité… Maybe, just maybe, that translated to Anarchic Fratricide Chaos a little too easily and it wasn’t a bug, it was a feature.

          It’s not fascism either, there’s no collectivism involved… Louis XIV is not Hitler. Also, you should understand that while the early American Republic may have been more Aristocratic in the Platonician sense, it sure did evolve quickly toward Jacobinism. Was it after Lincoln, after Roosevelt I or II, Wilson, LBJ? Who knows, but of course it’s government by the judges and the permanent technocracy. Elected officials have about as much true power as the actors who portray them in Hollywood movies.

  • Danimalius

    This was definitely the best pro-white conference I have attended thus far. There was a great turnout, as we basically sold out the hotel. Every speaker was not only interesting and engaging, but accessible for questions and comments. As always though, the spirit of comradery and the open and honest conversations with like-minded whites was the best part. The caliber of the men and women who attend these conferences continues to impress me.

    Taylor’s talk was perhaps the best, and I’ll always try to remember it whenever I speak on behalf of us to others, that what I say and how I say it is ever smarter, warmer, wise, and more interesting. I hope others do the same, as we work to change the public perception of us into something better. We need to, if we are to win, and we must want to win if we are ever going to win.

  • Romulus

    The conference was a first rate success. Beautiful location, little to no agitation from protestors.

    I felt initially apprehensive ,but settled in nicely. The speakers we’re well informed and personally engaging. The format flowed perfectly.
    I was very happy to speak with as many people as I could. Everyone were very well spoken,polite, and friendly.
    Thank you to my fellow PA residents for making me feel quite welcome.
    A special thanks to my new acquaintances from FRANCE,GERMANY, and Britain.

    To Mr. Taylor and staff: Thank you for courageous efforts and tireless efforts in the struggle to increase awareness of our people and stave off potential disaster. As promised, I will make an effort to post more politely, at the least.

    Actually, the Soviet Union claimed the ‘red army’ would ‘liberate’ the rest of the world through force of arms. It was part of their official policy put in writing. That’s the way Marxist’s generally did things, all ‘scholarly’.

      And I had the pleasure of dining with you once again. I don’t know why RamZPaul keeps ending up at our table. Must be following me around. Or maybe I just like following him. In any case, it was nice seeing 4 of the same people who were at our banquet table last year show up again at the same table this year. We should start a tradition.

  • Andy

    One People’s Project is saying two scheduled speakers were banned from entering the country. Is this true, and if so, who were they and why were they banned?

    • Rurik

      That was announced at the Conference. One of them was the promised “mystery speaker”, who was not identified.

  • Oldcorporal

    Sounds like the conference was a huge success, with no under-handed leftist tricks this time to intimidate hotels into cancelling reservations, etc. And the bedraggled “demonstrators” apparently just provided some comic relief. One suggestion, though, for Mr. Taylor: Why not for the next conference, try to get at least one or two female race realists to speak? I’ll bet if you did, and announced it ahead of time, you’d attract an audience that was more gender-balanced.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      I admire that idea for sure. I think it would be interesting taking a poll and seeing how most men feel about it.

      I am a younger woman in the movement and this is my 4th Amren conference.
      I have noticed that these events attract women of the more traditional
      variety (like myself), and we therefore don’t like being seen on camera,
      getting up and talking, or even asking questions at the microphone.

      And to my understanding from Mr. Taylor, if you either give a talk and/or
      ask a question during question time, you are up for grabs in regards to
      having your photo on the website, or even being filmed.

      I would personally as a woman just rather show up and be supportive and look
      nice, and act charming. But there are a couple women there who I am sure
      would love to talk at some point.

      I think the fact that young women even show up at these things, is getting enough publicity in itself. The male commenters who notice us and appreciate us being there, always enjoy mentioning it in the comments sections, and I have noticed how it really gets other male commenters’ attention for sure.

  • LHathaway

    He didn’t claim they were dead. He claims there were expulsions. That was a polite way of saying the German army took 7 million prisoners? Tell us, John, how many Russian prisoners Germany captured during WWII? I don’t know..

    No, the number of soldiers who actually died in combat in WWII, on all sides, was likely around 6 million. The US lost over 400,000 in combat.

    The Soviet Union and Warsaw pact never posed a military danger to Europe or the rest of the world? They certainly claimed they did!

  • Razedbywolvs

    The protesters brought there black people this year. They sure do love to show off there blacks.

  • Budd Smith

    Jack Donovan’s idea that there is no conspiracy to shear us of our local identities; short-sightedness and greed explain it, is fascinating. Global capitalism is stripping us of identity and turning us all into interchangeable consumers. Global markets are created by dissolving local loyalties. “Loyalty of any kind limits your options,” Mr. Donovan explained, “and once there are no social or legal obstacles to disloyalty, it becomes profitable to trade loyalty for opportunity. Discrimination then becomes the only dirty word.”
    This view makes sense. Wonder how this idea fits with the one that wealthy Jews are purposely working to destroy Western civilization.
