2015 AmRen Conference: Best Ever

Group
A record turnout for an invigorating weekend.

The 13th American Renaissance conference–the fourth at Montgomery Bell State Park in Tennessee–was held over a brilliant spring weekend and reflected the growing energy and momentum of our movement. There was record attendance, while the lifeless efforts of a small band of protesters only underlined their impotence in the face of our determination. It was a weekend of camaraderie–old friendships renewed and new ones established–built around a series of informative and inspiring speeches.

Crowd

The conference began Friday evening with a cocktail reception, followed by welcoming remarks by Jared Taylor. The program on Saturday opened with Matthew Tait of England, who first entered into nationalist politics at the age of 18. He gave a vivid, insider’s account of how the British National Party went from soaring success to irrelevance in just a few years, and tried to draw lessons from its collapse.

2004 was the beginning of the BNP’s “golden era,” with local council representation in all parts of Britain. “The taste of victory was very powerful,” said Mr. Tait, “as was the desire to win more and to win more often.” Mr. Tait, who ran for election several times himself, spoke movingly of what he heard from ordinary Britons during his campaigns: “There is a deep hunger for change, for a return to old values and the sense of national identity that has been eroded.” He was also touched by the willingness of people of modest means to contribute more than they could afford to what they hoped would be the restoration of Britain.

The BNP’s high-water mark was in 2009, when party leader Nick Griffin and long-time activist Andrew Brons were elected to the European Parliament, and the BNP won representation on the London Assembly. What then went wrong?

Mr. Tait explained that the Euro-elections victory was a pyrrhic one, in that the two main figures of the party left to serve in Brussels and were seldom in Britain where they were needed most. At the same time, the rapid growth of the party–its annual budget increased ten-fold in three years–unquestionably resulted in waste and misallocation. There were rumors that Mr. Griffin diverted funds in questionable ways, though Mr. Tait emphasized that this has never been proven.

He did note, however, that Mr. Griffin was unwilling to delegate authority, or that when he did so, he appointed people personally beholden to him rather than the most capable party members. Positions went to loyal nonentities while good people were sidelined and resigned in disgust. Thus, Mr. Griffin bears some blame for the party’s decline, though Mr. Tait praised him as “an absolute stalwart in the face of adversity year after year after year.” An inspiring orator is not necessarily the best party leader, especially when the party grows beyond a certain scale.

Mr. Tait also described other forces that contributed to the party’s decline. Its glory years coincided with Tony Blair’s “new Labour” era–a time of aggressive political correctness and mass non-white immigration. “We used to say that Blair was our best recruiter,” Mr. Taitt explained. The return of the conservatives to power, along with the rise of a new party, UKIP, which opposes mass immigration and EU membership, would have taken some of the wind out of the BNP’s sails no matter how well it had been run.

Mr. Tait concluded with practical advice: “Politics is 70 percent how you look, 20 percent how you talk, and 10 percent what you say.” Quibbling about the ideological purity of the 10 percent is much less important than choosing spokesmen who fit the remaining 90 percent of the profile. “Our message is our messenger,” he said. “We have to lead by example.” Mr. Tait also stressed the importance of creating associations of people who can meet frequently. Political and professional development are worthy goals but even purely social gatherings create vital bonds. We need the equivalent of “a church for our people.”

Mr. Tait emphasized that whatever our chances of success, our work has the potential to ennoble. “There is immense power in being on the side of righteousness in the face of adversity,” he said, “and I have seen ordinary people do great things in the service of our cause.” (Here is the video of Mr. Tait’s talk.)

Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute gave a talk called “Why They Hate Us.” He noted that enormous numbers of ordinary whites seem to have absorbed the view famously expressed by Susan Sontag that the white race is the cancer of human history, and that whites are uniquely responsible for suffering all around the world.

Mr. Spencer added that it is tempting to focus on white liberals because they personify the concept of white guilt, but it is what the mass of whites have come to believe that is much more important and disturbing. He mentioned the famous case of the authorities of the British town of Rotherham, who refused to investigate Pakistani men who preyed on underage white girls. Elected officials and police were so fearful of being accused of “racism” that they closed their eyes to a sickening pattern of racial/sexual exploitation. Mr. Spencer emphasized that what is most horrifying about this was that the Rotherham authorities were not perverts or foreigners or people who could be expected to hate whites; they were ordinary, respectable people–ordinary people paralyzed by white guilt. Rotherham, Mr. Spencer pointed out, is only an especially prominent example of where guilt leads: “Every day, little things are slowly eating away at our future.”

Mr. Spencer noted that racially conscious whites occupy a strange position in modern society. We hold practically no real power, yet “we are thought to hold all the power.” If one were to believe the mainstream media, “ ‘racism’ holds hegemony over the known world. We somehow sow hatred that destroys what would otherwise be universal multiracial happiness.”

Mr. Spencer noted that his racial activities have provoked outrage in the small Montana town in which he spends part of the year. The city council even met to see whether some legal action could be taken against him, but found it could do nothing more than issue a statement endorsing diversity. “But why does an almost entirely-white community react pathologically to the slightest movement towards white consciousness?” Mr. Spencer asked. Here, he explained, was another Rotherham, an example of people who consider themselves above the narrowness of religion and yet who are, when it comes to race, as benighted as the Puritans were about sex. “Whites,” he said “have a special capacity to become their own worst enemy, a unique ability to inflict guilt on themselves.”

Our opponents, added Mr. Spencer, gleefully imagine a world from which we have disappeared. “It is the mission of our movement to oppose that world and offer alternatives,” he said in conclusion. “We must purge our minds of guilt and rise to greet the dawn with a clear conscience.” (Video here.)

Peter Brimelow of VDARE.com gave a talk called “Immigration: Have We Reached the Tipping Point?” He noted that 40 years ago, there really were Communist cells in some major newspapers making sure that nothing negative about Communism would appear in print. Now, there is a different kind of censorship. Those who look forward to a non-white America “know they are very close to the tipping point, and that is why the new red terror is so intense. They smell victory and that is why it is essential to keep white consciousness suppressed.” Mr. Brimelow added that, if anything, today’s red terror is worse than anything McCarthy could muster: “It’s not a conspiracy; it’s a lynch mob.”

Mr. Brimelow called Republicans a fine example of spinelessness. Congressional votes for amnesty for illegal aliens have been blocked three times by massive outrage from ordinary Americans, but Republicans have not lifted a finger to stop President Obama’s executive amnesty. The obvious course would have been to impeach him or, short of that, to use the power of the purse to starve the agencies that would carry out the amnesty. Instead, it has fallen to “a very brave judge in Texas to hold the line–and who knows for how long?”

Mr. Brimelow still held out hope for strong action on immigration. In Britain, Enoch Powell had a tremendous impact on policy with a single, eloquent warning in 1968: his famous “rivers of blood” speech. “The country is ready for something important,” said Mr. Brimelow. “All it takes is a spark, all it takes is one ambitious politician, someone who is prepared to drop the bomb on this issue despite the advice of the political consultants.”

Unfortunately, we could be at the tipping point in the other sense. We may be finally tipped in the direction of Brazil, and this could ultimately lead to the breakup of the country. “We are in uncharted territory,” explained Mr. Brimelow. “No country has ever decided to abolish itself in this way, but for whites, minority status may not be the end but the beginning.” The “nightmare scenario” would be something like South Africa, but Americans have the time and the power to chart a different course.

Mr. Brimelow ended with a list of measures that could yet be enacted: Abolish birth-right and dual citizenship; expel Puerto Rico from the Union; end racial preferences; end the refugee program “which does nothing but colonize those parts of the country that are not sufficiently diverse;” abolish the King holiday; establish official English; secede at the state and local level. Why do these things not happen? “My favorite explanation,” said Mr. Brimelow, “is stupidity.” (Video here.)

The next speaker was Konstantins Pupurs, a Latvian nationalist who has been fighting for his people since the time of the Soviet occupation. Mr. Pupurs explained that his nation won independence from the Russian empire after a war that lasted from 1918 to 1920, and that grateful Latvians built a Freedom Monument in the center to Riga to commemorate the fallen. The Soviets invaded Latvia in 1940, annexed Latvia, banned any display of the national flag, and came close to demolishing the monument.

Mr. Pupurs explained that his parents and grandparents had fought the Bolsheviks, and that his experience as a draftee in the Soviet army convinced him that it was his duty to fight for Latvian independence. In 1988, Mr. Pupurs carried his nation’s flag through the streets of Riga and brandished it before the Freedom Monument. He was surrounded by thousands of patriotic Latvians that day, and the authorities did not dare stop him, but they arrested him soon after. He was stripped of Soviet citizenship and expelled from the country.

Mr. Pupurs returned to Latvia in 1991, after independence from the Soviet Union, but there were still active KGB elements who warned him to stay out of politics. When he ignored them, he suffered an assassination attempt that left him seriously injured. He left Latvia again, and did not return for good until 2010.

This time, explained Mr. Pupurs, it was safe for him to return to politics, and he became active in the All for Latvia! party, which, together with other nationalist parties, has achieved considerable electoral success. The party organizes youth camps, aid associations for veterans, and a variety of other community organizations.

Mr. Pupurs explained that one of the great achievements of the party has been the establishment of new patriotic traditions. For example, every year it sets up a dramatic “corridor of flags” leading to the Freedom Monument, in commemoration of the men who died fighting the Soviets during the Second World War. On Latvian Independence Day there is now a huge torchlight parade that has so caught the imagination of Latvians that it attracts 30,000 participants. Mr. Pupurs showed a moving video of the parade, accompanied by the stirring strains of the Latvian national anthem.

Mr. Pupurs’s unassuming account of his fight for Latvian pride and independence was a sobering reminder of the heavy sacrifices our European brothers have made for their people, and was deeply inspiring. (Video here.)

The next speaker, Jared Taylor, proposed two ideas that could change the United States from a country that threatens our survival to one that promotes it. The first would be to recognize that races differ in intelligence and temperament. The biology of race solves countless riddles: racial gaps in crime rates, illegitimacy, and school achievement; the lack of black engineers in Silicon Valley; wealth in Europe and poverty in Africa; and why the Marshall Plan worked but today’s foreign aid doesn’t. Mr. Taylor likened the concept of racial differences to that of a heliocentric universe: The solar system falls perfectly into place once you understand that the sun–not the earth–is at its center.

Mr. Taylor also pointed out that accepting race solves the problem of white guilt–there isn’t any. Blacks and Hispanics rise or fall to the level they deserve, with many of them getting a boost from racial preferences. He also argued that it would greatly reduce the hatred blacks feel if they understood that whites are not oppressing them. “If we accepted the facts about race,” Mr. Taylor said, “we would be spared an enormous amount of agony, guilt, hatred, and wasted effort.”

The second idea Mr. Taylor proposed for establishing a racially healthy regime was the recognition that people are tribal. It is obvious that people seek the company of people like themselves, and that diversity is a source of conflict. Mr. Taylor added that even those who praise diversity do not practice it, that “race and tribe define their lives right down to the television program they watched last night, but they would rather die than admit it.” He said he cannot understand why Americans refuse to recognize an aspect of human nature that is not only universal but that they, themselves, practice every day.

Mr. Taylor concluded by quoting George Kennan’s profile of the early Bolsheviks who made the revolution. Kennan hated Communism and all it stood for, but could not help admiring their faithfulness and dedication. Communism, said Mr. Taylor, was a murderous, tyrannical dead end. “How much easier should it not be,” he asked, “for us to throw ourselves into a cause we know is not only right and beautiful but necessary for the preservation of everything we love?” (Video here.)

The next event was a debate on the proposition: “Can the American political system be used to solve the race problem?” A “solution” was narrowly defined as a regime that recognized the two ideas Mr. Taylor had just outlined: racial differences and the tribal nature of man.

For the affirmative were Peter Brimelow and John Derbyshire; opposing were Sam Dickson and Richard Spencer. After a vigorous and entertaining debate, a show of hands by the audience found that although not many minds had been changed by the debate, slightly more had been persuaded to renew their hope in a political solution than had been persuaded to abandon it. The majority, however, did not think a political solution was possible. (Video here.)

The after-dinner speaker was Paul Ramsey, known to his YouTube public as RamZPaul, whose trademark combination of humor and sharp insight have been very popular at previous conferences. He began by noting that many of us are disappointed with the direction in which the country is going, but that things can change quickly. He reminded the audience that in Romania, which he recently visited, dictator Nicolai Ceausescu was giving a public speech one day and was shot to death four days later. Most people just sit on the sidelines waiting to see which way the wind is blowing, so a slight shift can blow over an entire regime.

Mr. Ramsey summarized the famous experiments of John B. Calhoun, in which he released a few pairs of rats into a nourishing but limited environment. The rat population doubled every 55 days until overpopulation led to a complete breakdown in normal behavior. Some rats became aggressive, others withdrew completely from interaction, some became homosexual. Reproduction stopped completely.

Mr. Ramsey likened the modern, globalized world to Calhoun’s rat dystopia. He speculated that diversity crowds the mental space in which people live, and may have the same effect as overpopulation. The result is plummeting reproduction rates, addiction to video games and pornography, and the open practice of degeneracy and homosexuality.

Mr. Ramsey pointed out that liberalism seeks incompatible goals. For example, it promotes both Muslim immigration and love of homosexuals. This can’t work if Muslims want to throw homosexuals from the tops of tall buildings. He argued that members of a species that spent most of the past 50,000 years living in one place, among close relatives, are not adapted to the mental overload of globalism and multi-culturalism. Mass immigration means cultural war and cultural death.

Mr. Ramsey stressed the importance of healthy, traditional sex roles as the basic building blocks of society. He said it was hard to imagine a return to good health in a mass, egalitarian democracy based on the idea that “if you can breathe you can vote.” Humans are not equal, and the assumption that they are leads to collapse.

Mr. Ramsey argued that men and women behave in healthy, complimentary ways when they live in the uncluttered conceptual space of small, homogeneous countries. He offered Hungary and Romania as nations that still have an authentic sense of themselves, whereas the United States is vast and chaotic. Mr. Ramsey said that regional breakup is possible, and could come as suddenly as the collapse of the Soviet Union. Only then can we be sure of avoiding the fate of Calhoun’s rats. (Video here.)

The Sunday program began with a memorial and tribute to Sam Francis, one of the most important dissident racialist thinkers of our time, who spoke at every American Renaissance conference until his death in 2005. Jared Taylor gave a brief sketch of his life and then played a video of selections from some of his speeches going back to 1994. Afterwards, Mr. Taylor spoke about his personal recollections of Francis, concluding with these words:

Our generation will not produce another Sam Francis. The few who could have matched him in learning and brilliance will not have his courage; those who have his courage will lack his brilliance. Our work must go on without him, but there is no greater tribute to him than to take inspiration from his words and carry on with all our strength the struggle to which he devoted his life.

(Video here.)

Sam Dickson then added his own recollections of Francis, noting how much Francis had sacrificed in his pursuit of the truth, and how much he had contributed to our movement.

Mr. Dickson then closed the meeting as he always has since the first AmRen conference. He began with a reference to Procrustes, from Greek mythology, who invited guests to his home but who then either stretched them on the rack or cut off their legs to make them fit his bed. This, Mr. Dickson explained, is the ideology of equality that governs America: We are all equal, even if it takes violence to make us equal.

Mr. Dickson noted that some liberals admit that “ideology was the scourge of the 20th century,” but do not realize that they are, themselves, prisoners of an ideology that mutilates reality just as Procrustes mutilated people. Their ideology is so powerful that for them, “seeing is not believing, because they live in a fairy tale, the wonderland of their ideology.” Race realists, he added, do not have an ideology; we draw lessons from science and nature.

Mr. Dickson quoted the late Murray Rothbard, who noted that liberals think they are secular people but are “in the mania of a religious excitement the likes of which we have never seen.” They have a fiendish energy for misunderstanding the world. Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, for example, claims that anyone who thinks there are differences between groups is a “hater.” Only someone blinded by ideology could look at pygmies and Swedes and claim to see no differences.

We may not be able to change the country, Mr. Dickson said, but we can change ourselves. We must bury the idea that the history of our country is a chronicle of ever-expanding freedom. The story of America is not the history of an idea; it is the history of a real people with a real history. In fact, some of the “freedoms” we now enjoy–for men to marry each other or for women to fight in foxholes–dissolve the ancient bonds of society and reduce us to atoms. Man is a social animal, and society is made of human relations, not abstract ideas like “freedom.”

Mr. Dickson noted that all the great battles of history are for tribe, family, nation, comrades–for people rather than for ideas. Men die for tribe, family, nation, and comrades, and not for abstractions.

We do not hope merely to survive, Mr. Dickson explained, but to carry our civilization to unheralded heights. We should never be discouraged because we have the truth on our side; we need never lie in the service of our cause. It is sufficient that we speak the truth. The forces of Procrustes have damaged our country but they have not destroyed it. Today, said Mr. Dickson, we are planting seeds. They are germinating below the surface and will bloom when we least expect them. (Video here.)

On Saturday afternoon, we were greeted by about a dozen scruffy protesters, waving signs that said “black lives matter” and “racists are buttheads.” Park police, including one mounted on a fine black horse, kept them contained away from the conference site, where they lounged on the grass and sunned themselves. They changed a few of their lefty slogans, but it was a limp effort. Even the employees at the park rolled their eyes. “All you have to do is look at them and look at you,” one said, “to know who’s right and who’s wrong.”

Protesters

The meeting was adjourned on Sunday, and we bid each other farewell–inspired, reinvigorated, and eager for next year’s conference.

        Same here!!! So good to hear that the park employees could see that the protestors were a motley group of low life scum.

        • zaqan

          That is really the most brilliant way to portray it all. Right or wrong, the most respectful and composed side usually wins.

    • IBWHITE

      It was both informative and entertaining. I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Pupurs during a break and was fascinated by his life story. The team debate was very interesting, Derbyshire was hilarious, and both sides made great points. All in all it was an excellent conference.

      • Rurik

        Well next year please introduce yourself to me, and perhaps specify your screen name. I’d have loved to have made your acquaintance.

        • IBWHITE

          I’ll make sure and do that – I always enjoy meeting like minded people at these conference’s.

        Next year I’m going to wear my screen name on my tag.

        Immigration, along with endless taxation, and the H-1B Genocide Visa are all designed to rob wealth and keep the middle class in poverty so that there is low inflation as bankers pump trillions of fiat dollars into fat cat deep pockets. The worry was always some would trickle down and reach the middle class but with these 3 programs inflation is kept to 8% a year

    • Pat Boyle

      I wish I could have spoken.

    • FJ

      Same here! I love going out in public and identifying myself as a low-IQ racist.

    • Mentious

      I think the next one’s going to be bigger and better still. Hail our brave! I might look into getting a new suit for attending myself!

    • IceQueen

      You missed a fab time. Maybe you can make it next year. An AmRen conference should be on everyone’s bucket list. Hearing Jared Taylor and Sam Dickson speak in person is a treat. I attend not just to hear the speakers, but for the fellowship. It is so refreshing to be around like minded people. Oh, then there’s the After Party. Listen up fellas: Wine, women, and song. (Just wine and song for me.) There’s an impression that AmRen conferences are just a bunch of old stuff shirts. Not so. There were many more young people and ladies this year than in the past. Although it is a majority of men, and well, I don’t consider being in a room full of men a bad day. Just sayin’. And ladies, if you want to attend a venue where a gentleman will hold the door open for you, an AmRen conference is your ticket. It’s a good time all the way around, whether it’s listening to speakers, chatting with like minded people, or relaxing and listening to a fabulous fiddle player, and a classical singer at the after party, there’s nothing about an AmRen Conference that I don’t enjoy. Just a bunch of normal people really.

      I would have liked to given a talk on the genocide against American software engineers via the H-1B visa

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Ramzpaul had been saying that he was unprepared, which he also said last year. But his presentation seems highly researched. I’m beginning to think he says that he’s unprepared to lower expectations.

      • DaveMed

        I’m not such a fan of that tactic, but hey – if he delivered, who cares?

      • Zimriel

        I’ve tried “public speaking” – to a Youtube camera – myself. Typically what I’ve done is to gather a lot of facts and then to spout them in some order that may or may not make sense in the end. Ramzpaul started out as a youtuber. If Ramzpaul’s taking that act to his public appearances, that would explain why he says he’s unprepared.

        The results in my case haven’t been great (so far). But then, I haven’t done this as often as has Ramzpaul; also it’s not really my passion.

      • Raymond Kidwell

        That is a speech technique that some people use so it is highly plausible.

      • Speedy Steve

        John B. Calhoun: I went to Youtube and watched all the videos. It’s jaw-dropping stuff. And to think that the American Psychiatric Association cannot explain homosexuality; it’s just where comfortable society ends up. The comfort ends when die-versity becomes intolerable.

    • antiquesunlight

      Same here. I like how Peter Brimelow is always looking distractedly to his left no matter what. Am anxiously waiting to confirm this habit with video evidence.

      • Speedy Steve

        That, and the constant donning of the glasses.

  • Alexandra1973

    As for the last picture…I guess ignorance is bliss. They have no idea that your garden-variety black person couldn’t care less, they’re as much a target as any other White person.

    • IBWHITE

      I found it amusing that the protestors held signs stating “black lives matter” yet there was not one negro among them.

      • Speedy Steve

        Darryl, the really fat one, had to seek respite from the pleasant 70 degree heat in the cafeteria with 2 of his coddlers. He was probably comped a bus ticket, KFC coupons, and 2 40s. The $PLC can be very generous. The White haters of hate had to provide their own transportation to hoist their black lies matter signs.

        • IBWHITE

          I’ve met a few of these beta male types that were incarcerated. They’re generally wearing “Daisy Duke” cutoffs with cherry kool-aid smeared on their cheeks and sold for a “brick of smokes.”

      • FJ

        I find it amazing that you are an idiot stuck in the 1960s using the term “negro.”

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Maybe they should have a “scared straight” program for white guilted kids?

      • FJ

        Maybe they should offer basic high school education to all of these idiot racists?

    • Speedy Steve

      They have been taught in college that knee grows are their equals, which in libtard thinking means “your betters.” Spoilt White brats with low self-esteem is what they are. Pathetic!

  • We may not be able to change the country, Mr. Dickson said, but we can change ourselves. We must bury the idea that the history of our country is a chronicle of ever-expanding freedom. The story of America is not the history of an idea; it is the history of a real people with a real history. In fact, some of the “freedoms” we now enjoy–for men to marry each other or for women to fight in foxholes–dissolve the ancient bonds of society and reduce us to atoms. Man is a social animal, and society is made of human relations, not abstract ideas like “freedom.”

    Excellent. What would help even more if we can find a paradigm to triangulate between the two questionable didactics of “freedom” that we are allowed to see through today’s Overton window. The left’s idea is that “freedom” is nothing more than state privileges, the right’s idea is that “freedom” is a universal gift to humanity from omnipotent supernatural forces, and both didactics, if followed through to their logical ends, lead to the same rat dystopia. I happen to think that the true ethnonationalist essence of “freedom” is the things which people do to carry out responsibilities to themselves and like-blooded people around them, or at least things which don’t interfere with others carrying out those responsibilities. Plain words, rights and responsibilities are so tightly intertwined that they might as well be the same thing; I understand that as late as the 1960s, Southern writers and authors and politicians almost always used the phrase “rights and responsibilities” and rarely “rights” alone.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Sam Dickson has a rhetorical ability to cut through all the garbage in a mere paragraph. Excellent, indeed!

      • Speedy Steve

        Sadly I had to begin a grueling drive before Sam’s speech ended. Talked to him casually over a Wild Turkey though, and he stood outside with the smokers and vapers.

    “RACISTS ARE BUTTHEADS”

    haha!
    Well good afternoon fellow “buttheads”!

    I wonder if his mom made a special trip down to the basement to help with the sign?

    • Reynardine

      I like how the limit of their insult intelligence hangs around the 3rd grade.

      • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

        Their low IQ definitely is to our advantage. They showed clearly that pro-Negro Leftists are Beavis and Butthead.

      • Speedy Steve

        I was taught to write sign in lower case so it doesn’t loook as though kids made it. And it hits the eye faster.

    • anony

      Buttheads of the World unite!!!!

    • OHDeutschePolkaConfederate

      Makes me wonder what their reaction would have been if H. K. Edgerton had walked up the sidewalk to attend the meeting, wearing a Confederate flag necktie. H. K. would surely have given the protesters an earfull, speaking in defense of White Southerners and Dixie.

      • zaqan

        Never heard of him, but upon googling, I have to learn more about this gentleman.

    • Albert

      “Racists are buttheads”?? I thought people on the left were supposed to be more creative than that.

      • Dave West

        I guess they don’t teach insulting in Gender and Race Studies 201.

    • zaqan

      First it was shitlord. Now its butthead. Love these losers.

    • Light from the East

      Racist is actually a term liberals use when they have no other things to say.

    • nordicman

      I’d ask them “how much were you paid to be here?” or if they get some kind of college credit to be there (being that they look young) or how ‘diverse’ it is where they live. How they answer those questions says all I need to know about them.

    • Speedy Steve

      Black lies matter.
      Black matter lives.

    • Speedy Steve

      It was her lipstick, or was it?

    • Ethelred

      Interesting side note – evidently, it’s not enough to just call someone “racist” any more…

      • MacGyver

        Yes, if racism is merely a subset of the greater evil of buttheadedness then we are moving up in the world.

    • Interestingly, the “mob” is all white. Were no persons of color available, or did they not care to attend? I suspect the looting opportunity in B-More held attentions and diverted attendance. Sadly, while I admire the commentary and agree on the desired outcome, I don’t concur that peace and love will save what our forefathers died and risked to obtain. The wife is fond of stating some of these people live their entire lives and never once encounter a beating for their misbehaviors and insults. They cowered under the skirts of teachers and others to protect the vile and obnoxious behaviors and comments they preferred as children. The “Bully” fascination speaks to their fear of physical confrontation then, and now. Remember, these people perpetually project their own worst short comings and fears upon strangers – whom they fear. The racism of low expectations is evidence of their inability to accept facts, and failure in the solutions they design and support. The money and sacrifice of others is always in their calculus. How many years has HHS failed to ameliorate the original problem they were created to fix? Only when cause and effect are measured meritoriously and actions taken to reward successful efforts, and eliminate failures, will we ever be positioned to repair the mess. The equality of equality – everyone is equal in every way – is the Big Lie that must end.

    Not a lot of diversity in that “crowd” of protesters.

  • Oldcorporal

    Sounds like the conference was a big success. Wish I could have attended. One thing, which I have brought up after AmRen conferences in other years: I think you should make strenuous efforts to attract more women, and to have a couple of women who would be willing to address the conference. Just a thought.

      Agreed. I think there is great potential for a Marine Le Pen within our ranks.

    • Rurik

      I understand that this year a subsidized registration was provided by someone or other, for a person unable to financially afford on their own, sort of a gift to that person and the movement. I suspect this may happen again next year, so dream ahead.

      • Oldcorporal

        Well, thanks for the information. Actually, I could afford to go, but I don’t have my own transportation, and so it would just be a big hassle. Maybe if I make plans ahead of time for next year’s conference, I can find a way to get there.

        • Anon Wyatt

          I had a similar issue; I haven’t owned a car in three years so I rented one and drove. I’d be willing to pay more for a shuttle between Nashville and/or the airport to the park.

        • Speedy Steve

          I drove from Virginia, I could have swung by the airport and picked up a couple of attendees.

  • AngloBilly

    I attended, and I can assure you that it was an excellent event. The lectures were all very good and informative. I was especially impressed by the Englishman Matt Tait and the Latvian Konstantin Pupurs. They modestly and eloquently described the very good work which they are doing in their countries. They also provided practical suggestions on what we can do in the USA.

    It was also a good time of fellowship. This was my first AmRen conference, and I hope to attend more. If you haven’t been to one before, I hope to meet you at future conferences.

    The staff at the lodge in Montgomery Bell State Park were also very nice and helpful. It’s a beautiful, quiet setting with interesting history, and, if you’re in the area anytime, I recommend a stay there. And no, the staff didn’t ask or pay me to tell you this! 🙂

    Oh, and yes, the demonstrators certainly were the idiots that you can imagine them to have been.

  • JohnEngelman

    The next speaker, Jared Taylor, proposed two ideas that could change the United States from a country that threatens our survival to one that promotes it. The first would be to recognize that races differ in intelligence and temperament. The biology of race solves countless riddles: racial gaps in crime rates, illegitimacy, and school achievement; the lack of black engineers in Silicon Valley; wealth in Europe and poverty in Africa; and why the Marshall Plan worked but today’s foreign aid doesn’t. Mr. Taylor likened the concept of racial differences to that of a heliocentric universe: The solar system falls perfectly into place once you understand that the sun–not the earth–is at its center.

    ———

    Jared Taylor’s message sounds like the boy saying, “The Emperor has no clothes.”

  • Zimriel

    Ramzpaul’s comments about videogames are interesting, in light of #gamergate, and now Rabid Puppies.

    As always, the goofs outside protesting look sickly and degenerate while the people inside the conference look strong and healthy.

    • Dave West

      Just look at any of the Occupy protests; other than token minorities, uppity libtards, and a few veterans; the vast majority are basically the undertow of urban-white America. Half the men look like they could barely bench a barbell and they want to start a “revolution”? haha. The founding fathers must be spinning in their graves laughing and puking at the same time. it also doesn’t help that these “revolutionaries” hate guns.

      • They’re also dressed as if they are ready to clean out a garage, assuming any of them has ever actually cleaned anything.

        • John Smith

          The “womyn” probably don’t shave their pits either.

          • 李冠毅

            For much of history, unshaven armpits was the norm. Women had only begun shaving their armpits recently, when sleeveless dresses became popular.

          • antiquesunlight

            So you’re saying Occupy women need more dresses?

          • Samuel Hathaway

            The occupy wymyn don’t need dresses at this point… they need to cover up in a burqua with just enough peeping room so they don’t bump into anything.

          • John Smith

            Yes, but neither was bathing with soap and frequently. I know what I prefer.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            The “wymyn” protesters probably don’t shave their legs, either.

      Probably most were too stoned that morning and spaced it off.

      There was an antifa conference in Nashville, which is a major-league party town. The rest of them probably got too drunk to tackle the 20 mile drive.

  • LAGERTHA

    Any chance that we could possibly have two conferences per year?? Let’s say a Western as well as the Eastern location, to better accommodate those of us living on the West coast. The Monterey Peninsula “Asilomar Conference Center” would be ideal! There are many racial conscious Whites living in and around Monterey/Carmel/Pebble Beach.

    • I once suggested Las Vegas, as the all-you-can-eat buffets are pretty good there. Vegas is a bit tacky, however.

      • InAFreeCountry

        Saying Vegas is a bit tacky is like saying San Fran is a bit gay.

        • Murphcon

          Try the El Cortez. It’s a humble dive.

          • LAGERTHA

            One of the originals.

        • Speedy Steve

          San Fran is less homo than DC.

          • InAFreeCountry

            Even if this is true, DC is not as well known for its flaming gayness. I’d say Key West before DC.

      • LAGERTHA

        Yeah, it has lost some of it’s magic. The buffets and some of the shows are still exceptional. McCarran is also a nice airport.

      Midwest Chicago event can be done. We had a smaller, but very successful Vdare event in Chicago last year.

      • LAGERTHA

        That’s definitely a great place, and would be wonderful, but for those of us on the West coast that is still almost as far away as Tennessee. Hmm..(thinking out loud), so 3 or 4 regional locations in the U.S. for communities within a 500 mile radius or so, along with the National Conference that would rotate to a different region each year. That would give each region an opportunity to host the event, and stay in the loop of the broader movement???

        • jaye ellis

          Have to say Vegas is the logical place to meet on the West Coast. Just don’t patronize Sheldon Adelson’s Casino.

          • LAGERTHA

            Just to clarify, “Asilomar Conference Center” on the Monterey Peninsula would be the first choice. I think we would get a better draw from the Northwest community. Many of the California transplants that have headed North are familiar with the Monterey Bay. Vegas may not seem as appealing.

        • Rurik

          I really admire the enthusiasm you and some others are displaying. If it works, it would be a major step forward. My cautions expressed above are intended to suggest details which should be addressed during the planning stages. I drove over 900 m to attend this year, and would try to attend other regional meetings depending on location and speakers. I’d actually love a couple of AmRens a year.

    • DavidMacko

      The enemy, beginning with Bill Clinton, has made public the projection that Whites will become a minority in our country by about 2040. Obviously, this is to condition us for that day and make it seem inevitable. Hardly anyone is projecting the logical progression of the decline of the White race in the United States from 90% in 1960 and 49% in c. 2040 to 2100 and beyond where American Whites would be a minority similar to that in South Africa, since this prediction would tend to awaken the American people.

    Awesome to hear, Mr. Taylor. I want you to know, as a student at a top university in America, that your words are spreading faster than ever. I’ve actually had several friends approach me and ask about your videos, figuring I”d be interested.

    As the opposition grows angrier, so do we grow bigger. You’ve had an amazing legacy on this movement, and your work is having its effects. Wish I were there.

    • Sid Ishus

      There were a surprising number of twenty somethings in attendance. We most likely had as many younger attendees as they had protesters.

      BTW, The women in attendance were much easier on the eyes than the slobs in the crowd. It was nice to have so many ladies present, I was expecting nothing but old men like the Tea Party meetings I had attended.

      • Anglokraut

        I think younger people have realized that the Tea Party does not concern itself with the racial future of Whites.

        • sam sneed

          very true. And Rand Paul being pro open borders clinches it.

  • Rob

    Look at those shamless white people with posters and hating their own race. Now if those wite people dissapear, the world wil be a better place.
    You will never see a non white doing what these shameless white people are protesting about. Talk about brain washing.

  • Rob

    LOL I wonder what would happen when a hoard of negroes attack those liberal white people. I guesss they will lay down and take it and think that they deserve it for being white. It is just like mothers in Victorian and Edwardian England would tell their newly wedded daughters who did not know about the facts of life to lie there and think of England when the time came for the first night.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Except that those libs would never think of a racist, imperialist, white country like England. They’ll be thinking of Mozambique instead.

  • InAFreeCountry

    It appears that the lack of vibrant diversity among the protesters at least kept things peaceful. Oh, the irony.

  • 李冠毅

    “Race realists, he added, do not have an ideology; we draw lessons from science and nature.”

    Maybe that’s true, but I have learned from my time on liberal and racially aware fora that very few people are actual realists; both sides tend to be ideologues, not intellectuals. I sometimes have quite a frustrating time trying to debate the commentators on these websites. Many of them stubbornly hold onto what they prefer to be the truth, rather than keep an open mind. Funny thing is, they like to see themselves as truth seekers and their liberal/”racist” opponents as ideologues, when in reality they themselves are no different from the very liberals/”racists” they often criticize.

    One thing the two sides seem to have in common is that many of them like to believe they are the “chosen people”, and that all others are inferior. The liberals tend to believe that they are the righteous ones who can bring peace and prosperity to the world, and that “racists” are bigots who try to hamper that. The racially aware tend to believe that the White race, which they are a part of, are born to be great, while other races cannot match up. But when the evidence doesn’t hold up their beliefs, few accept the truth and instead they either ignore it or fly into a name-calling spree, saying those facts are fake. Conversely, any facts which hold up their beliefs often draw a “SEE? TOLD YOU SO!” response. See what I mean? Both liberals and race realists like to believe they belong to a superior group and all other groups are inferior to theirs. I feel that both are more dedicated to trying to stroke their egos rather than search for the truth.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      Well, many racially conscious folks here don’t believe other races cannot match up, especially when it comes to Asians. But what most do want is for white to preserve their homelands and live mostly among themselves. This, I agree, has some ideology in it, but that’s just where we stand.

      • 李冠毅

        Thank you for your understanding. I agree that Whites have a right to preserve their race and culture. But it is plainly obvious that many people here are seriously biased. Try paying attention to the number of upvotes a comment gets. Chances are, a comment which proposes the superiority of Whites and Western civilization, or downplay the achievements of non-Whites, will get lots of upvotes whether the comment is true or not. But if proven to be false, the comment which does the debunking tends to get very few, if any, upvotes.

        I understand that everyone is biased to some extent; that’s what makes us human. But can we at least try to be balanced and fair? I upvote any comment which appears to reflect the truth, whether I like the comment or not. I have upvoted many comments which say bad things about my race and culture if the comment appear to be true, and I have refrained from upvoting many comments which praise my race and culture if the comment appear to be false. Have any other commentator here done the same?

        But then again, I’m not a supremacist (“supremacy” as in the belief that my own race is the greatest in character and achievement); unlike some people, who only bothered to read up on the achievements of their own culture and then assume others have done little, I’m aware that several other cultures (most notably Europe, Indus Valley, the Middle East, and other Northeast Asian countries) can match up to my own in terms of inventions and discoveries.

    • Lion’s Mane

      Look! Many Whites use a supposed ‘superiority’ as their excuse for being pro-White. I have no interest in superiority. Even if we Whites were in fact inferior in abilities to all other races, I would still want us to survive and have a wholesome future.

      I appreciate East Asian culture. There is much of interest to read in the Chinese and Japanese classic writings. I think that East Asian “religion” is superior to ‘Western’ Christianity. (I do not really consider Christianity to be an authentic Western religion.) I would never want to see a planet without East Asians.

      However, I also love European culture AND the European physical aesthetic. I think that Whites can be very beautiful people.

      If I were to give you my strongest reasons why the White Race should survive — and we are a tiny minority which can become extinct — I would post here a five or so pictures of exceptionally good-looking European people whose physical beauty will tragically be lost if the insanity of anti-White liberalism and modern “conservatism” is left to go unchallenged.

      I can imagine a future in which people will look at photos or painting of long-since dead White people and say, “Did you know that there used to be people who looked just like those in these pictures? Now they are no more.”

      In short, I do not want European beauty erased from this planet. This is my CHIEF reason for being pro-White. The other is to stop anti-White discrimination — i.e., ‘affirmative action,’ in which Whites are denied what they have justly earned according to their achievements.

      • 李冠毅

        “I do not believe that emotional attachment — that is to say, love — is an invalid reason for defending something.”

        I agree. In fact, I think love and positive feelings are the most important things for a society to thrive. Ancient Chinese philosopher Mengzi put forth the now famous idea that all people are inherently good (人之初,性本善), and do not require laws or a tyrannical government to control them into behaving. I believe he’s right. I’ve once read about a culture (South American I think, though I couldn’t remember) in which when a person is born, all the villagers gather together and write a special song just for the newborn. Then, they gather around him and sing that song. In the future, should that person do something bad, instead of punishing him, the villagers gather around him and sing that special song for him again. Very often, the person comes to his conscience and goes back to doing good.

        If I can have my way, there will be no formal laws, instead the aforementioned method would be the norm, and people would spend quality time together every day, and as a result, everyone is happy and healthy, everyone trusts each other, and crime is non-existent. How many of you know your neighbors, and do you trust them? I guess very few. Are your family members very close, or do they regularly fight, and are not really on good terms (or at the very least, not exactly close)? I believe people simply need learn to love and trust each other, then most of the world’s problems would disappear.

        I admit that I have long dreamed of somehow being appointed the ruler of my country and making this the norm, and creating a heaven on Earth. Some may say this is silly, but I believe it can happen.

        • Lion’s Mane

          I understand where you’re coming from. I also have dreamed of finding great wisdom in simplicity and of using it to ‘rule’ a fictitious country according to the Basic Law of human life — which is Love, or Tao. (I understand that I do not have the wisdom to rule a real country in the modern system, and therefore I do not aspire to political power.) It is clear that you and I are both idealists and dreamers!

          On YouTube there is a video expressing what are also my ideals: What Is Tao? – Alan Watts Of course you will be familiar with this teaching, which has also greatly influence me.

          In the West, “Liberals” really do not trust people to lead good lives. Our liberal leaders actually feel the need to control every aspect of our lives — including, most especially, our thoughts. This is the opposite of Taoist political philosophy.

          Of course, I’ve read numerous translations of Tao Te Ching, as well as explanatory articles written about its teachings. I can even read the first verse in the Chinese — but this is the extent of my knowledge of Chinese so far.

          • 李冠毅

            Hi. I spent the last few days digging through my old reading materials, looking for what I consider one of the most important things I have ever read in my life. Found it. The singing villagers story mentioned in my earlier comment was from an old English language newspaper my father brought back during a trip to Malaysia. I had remembered one thing incorrectly; the culture is African, not South American. Here is a direct copy of the story:

            Remember Your Song
            —————————-
            When a woman in a certain African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into the wilderness with a few friends and together they pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child. They recognize that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its unique flavor and purpose. When the women attune to that song, they sing it out loud. Then they return to the tribe and teach it to everyone else.

            When the child is born, the community gathers and sings the child’s song to him or her. Later, when the child enters education, the village gathers and chants the child’s song. When the child passes through the initiation to adulthood, the people again come together and sing. At the time of marriage, the person hears his or her song. Finally, when the soul is about to pass from this world, the family and friends gather at the person’s bed, just as they did at their birth, and they sing the person to the next life.

            To the African tribe, there is one other occasion upon which the villagers sing to the child. If at any time during his or her life, the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, the individual is called to the center of the village and the people in the community form a circle around them. Then they sing their song to them.

            The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment; it is love and the remembrance of identity. When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another.

            (Moral of the story: A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you when you have forgotten it. Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly, your wholeness when you are broken, your innocence when you feel guilty, and your purpose when you are confused.

            You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t.)

            – From a story told by Alan Cohen in his book, Wisdom Of The Heart

  • Speedy Steve

    I saw a quarter of the protestors in a maroon Nissan on I-40 at 3 p.m. The car had NC tags.

  • I glanced through what a lot of these speakers were saying. Yes, you guys are right. No argument from me (Obviously, or I wouldn’t be a regular poster on this website.). But, our problem is this: While we may have all of the intellectual arguments and scientific arguments on our side, our enemies have done a better job at having the emotional arguments on theirs. Let’s be honest-they have all the great slogans and the popular cultural appeal. They have all the great music, starting from the Beetles, back in the sixties. And they had, until recently, control of all the information sources available to the public (colleges and media outlets). Not until the rise of the Internet, which is for now free and open, has there been a chance for a real debate to begin. Great message, but there still are challenges.

      Some sites would be far more problematic than others. In some towns the protesters could prove both more numerous and more feral. You would also need security to guard against infiltrating spies and provocateurs. You’d also need someone experienced at organizing similar gatherings, and some way of publicizing. Not intended to discourage the idea, just to urge the need for serious planning.

    How do you know he’s not telling the truth? I don’t detect lying in his statements on how he decides what to upvote.

    • Where did I say someone was lying?

      But it is plainly obvious that many people here are seriously biased.

      That kind of statement looks a little dissociative and out of place where and when:

      1) The entire premise of almost all racialist platforms consists of some kind of bias. This site should be totally free of bias?

      2) The bias espoused on AmRen is certainly much less “seriously” biased than what you would find on practically every other website that positions itself as race oriented. Even the tolerant and “liberal” websites are a little more inundated with bias than what you would find here. plainly, many, and seriously… I guess that’s all supposed to sound ominous.

      3) The repetitive accusations lead to a road where the individual(I) consistently props himself up as a paragon of what the group(we, us) should emulate. Really odd when you consider that said individual isn’t really part of the group.

      What are you should you not follow the lead of our not-so-White, self-anointed luminary? C’mon, you know the answer. You were given clues, and you’ve played this game before with the openly anti-White hordes. You’re a Supremacist, silly boy. Obviously AmRen is plainly filled with many seriously biased supremacists.

        “The repetitive accusations”

        No, I’m not here to accuse Whites non-stop. The liberals already do that, and I’m pretty sure you guys do not want to hear another endless lecture about how great non-Whites are. It’s just that the commentator I’m replying to clearly haven’t read my earlier comment, so I retyped it from memory. For those of you who have read my earlier comment, please don’t get mad. I’m not intentionally here to criticize you guys. Besides, many of my comments reuse old material from earlier comments. After all, none of you have time to shift through every AmRen forum and read all the comments, right? As a result, not everyone has read all of my comments, and they may not have gained the knowledge I was trying to spread, so I sometimes find it necessary to repost old comments again. But don’t worry, I promise that I don’t do this unless it actually adds to the discussion.

  • Lion’s Mane

    “Truth and Bias can occupy the same space, at the same time. Furthermore, Truth can sometimes be totally dependent on a bias. Riddle me this: Do I love my family because of a Truth or because of a Bias?”

    I agree with you on this. Love is a VALID human reason in an argument about preserving something.

  • antiquesunlight

    It makes me very happy to see there are some younger people there. Hopefully more and more young people come each year.

  • Spencer says whites have a propensity to hate themselves.

    Taylor says people are naturally tribal.

    The two views contradict each other…

    unless..

    ‘Progressive’ moral narcissism has become the new white tribalism.

    Whites have become a cancer in this sense: they are very aggressively tribal in attacking their own tribe.

    It’s been said revolutions devour their own children. Tribalism can do the same.
    There is tribalism of racial survival, and there is tribalism of moral narcissism. Many whites associate white pride with ‘progressive’ moral sanctimony. Their instincts are still tribal, but the passions have been directed at their own kind.

    • Lion’s Mane

      Whites do not have a propensity to hate themselves. This problem is the result of intense and ceaseless indoctrination.

      • 李冠毅

        “The odd thing is that Whites can be very hostile, one white nation against another, while overly altruistic when it comes to foreign nations.”

        Problem is, the rulers of the aforementioned White nations probably don’t see each other as siblings and natural allies. They probably think Africans have more in common with them than their German neighbor next door.

      There’s no doubt that the ascendency of the left in the 60s was because they had the cute hippy chicks (no better way to attract males to your movement). I’m happy to see that the cute girls are now showing up at the Amren conference.

  • JGTThrasher

    Gathering together and meeting like-minded people who are friendly, fun, and smart is refreshing. I went to last years, which was my first and have not stopped thinking about the people I met, using what I learned in conversation, and wanting to return. While the conference itself is informative, it is the hanging out with others that really lends strength to having to deal with the present state things. When I say I cannot wait to go back, I mean it. I still bring up last years conference to people. There is nothing like being around folks that you can speak freely with and who you can respect.

    One of the points being that culture changes politics and that we should start something local I have decided to celebrate May Day this year by inviting friends and family over. May Day had been a traditional European holiday that is not celebrated so much here in the States. Who can resist wine and beer, cheese and meat, games and music?

    Better than celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

    • AngloBilly

      “…culture changes politics…”

      Exactly. The biggest disasters of recent decades were losing the schools, colleges, news media and Hollywood to the Left. That’s a tremendous hole to climb out of. You can’t climb out just by winning elections. Tait and Pupurs described ways that they are trying to help change the culture, which you can hopefully hear about soon on the videos.

      I like your May Day idea a lot. My toes curl under thinking about the many white people I know who have bought into Cinco de Mayo. Vive la France! 🙂

      Cinco de Maio is Karl Marx’ birthday. Trotsky invented the holiday — that sneaky shape-shifter.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    I’m a little disappointed to see Peter Brimelow refer to the lies of the left as “McCarthyism”: Joe McCarthy has been as thoroughly vindicated by the historical record as a human being could possibly be, and his picture SHOULD appear in the dictionary immediately adjacent to the word “vindicated.” (See M. Stanton Evans. “Blacklisted by History.”)

    • LHathaway

      I know it’s just romanticism, and perhaps foolish but I really think that is where the nation went wrong. It’s just romanticism on my part, but the outcome of the McCarthy controversy is the key to everything. Or at least with the closure of institutions like the UnAmerican Activities Commission, there was no hope our train ride toward destruction could be slowed down. Nothing and no one is standing in their way.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        I agree that “the outcome of the McCarthy controversy is the key to everything”:

        They destroyed McCarthy and — like a John LeCarre` novel — everyone who was loyal was made to look foolish or worse, and every traitor was lionized and promoted.

        Speech codes, censorship and political correctness are of a more recent vintage: They are a legacy of the Cultural Marxists, whose long march through the institutions” (Pat Buchanan quote) began in the late 1960s, and has by now successfully destroyed most institutions of “higher learning.”

        • JohnEngelman

          During the McCarthy Era we had loyalty oaths, black lists and witch hunts. So what if Communist Party members worked in the popular culture, journalism, and teaching? They had the right to.

          During the early 1960’s the television series Hootenanny blacklisted Pete Seeger. What were they afraid of? Did they think Pete Seeger would send coded messages to the KGB?

          • Earl P. Holt III

            From the very beginning, the sole purpose of the the American Communist Party was to assist Soviet Espionage. That is the sole reason for its charter by the Comintern.

            I have already demonstrated this to you with documents found in the Soviet Archives detailing the Comintern’s expectations from the fledgling American Communist Party. I will cite chapter and verse (ONCE AGAIN!) when I have the opportunity.

          • JohnEngelman

            How many times do I have to repeat myself? Communist espionage was a legitimate concern. Communist espionage was not.

            The American Communist Party was never much more than a Marxist book discussion group.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I suspect there’s a Freudian slip in your response: I suspect you meant to say “…communist espionage was a legitimate concern…communist MEMBERSHIP was not.”

            The reason you made such an fascinating “slip” is because PARTY MEMBERSHIP = ESPIONAGE, and always has. That’s exactly WHY the Comintern allowed the American Communist Party to be established, so that it could serve the NKVD and GRU agents in the United States.

            I’m going to reproduce a letter from the Soviet Archives PROVING this, and then you will continue to deny its significance, just as Alger Hiss denied his membership and espionage activities…

          • JohnEngelman

            The Comintern did not allow “the American Communist Party to be established.” The American Communist Party was founded in 1919, as a left wing splinter of the American Socialist Party.

            The establishment of the Soviet Union created a split in Socialist and Social Democratic parties throughout the West. Orthodox Marxists considered the Bolshevik dictatorship to be illegitimate, because capitalism had never been fully developed in Russia.

            In addition, Socialist, Social Democratic parties, and the British Labour Party agreed that a dictatorship was an unacceptable government for a socialist economy. As you can see from what I have quoted from the CPUSA website, the American Communist Party has come to agree too.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Clearly, there were negotiations between the Comintern and communists in the U.S. who wanted to establish a party here.

            I did not say that the Comintern “allowed” them to do so, what I said was that if they wanted RECOGNITION from Moscow, they had to observe all those prerequisites and preconditions established by the Comintern in 1920.

            That’s not MY take, that’s the take of every scholar who has studied the Soviet Archives.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You can lie and dissemble all you want: It doesn’t mean that I (or any knowledgeable person) will accept your lies. Here is what Harvey Klehr, John Earl Haynes and Frederick Firsov wrote in “The Secret World of American Communism,” the first book published by academic historians after scouring the Soviet Archives. (You wouldn’t know this, but Firsov was the Head Librarian of the Soviet Archives.)

            That illegal and secret operations were an inevitable feature of American communism, is reflected in the fact that maintenance of an
            underground apparatus was one of 21 conditions established by the Comintern in 1920 for admission by prospective members. In late 1930, moreover, high-ranking Comintern officials reemphasized the need for members to “…immediately undertake measures to have within the legally existing Party committees an illegal directing one.” (Secret World, pp. 21 and 71.)

            Klehr, Haynes and Firsov have demonstrated admirably that such illegal activities included large cash transfers to secretly fund member parties (Document #1,) the creation of secret courier services (Document #21,) the establishment of secret “Mail-Drops” (Document #7,) secret short-wave radio exchanges with Moscow (Document #58,) the use of false identification (Document #10,) and the recruitment of “promising” individuals for Secret Intelligence Work (Document #63.)

            With such organizational structures in place, the replacement of amateur CPUSA operatives with seasoned and sophisticated professionals from the GRU and KBG was predictable and inevitable. As Klehr, Haynes and Firsov observe: “…such security precautions… provided communists with training in clandestine procedures that were immediately adaptable to the needs of Soviet Intelligence agencies.” (Secret World, p.34)

            Its result was the infiltration of the U.S. Federal Government at many levels, with extremely dire consequences for Western security, most notably, the theft of America’s atomic secrets by the most aggressively expansionist nation in modern history.

          • JohnEngelman

            Those who spy for other countries frequently have venal motivations. They are angry because they are passed over for promotions. Perhaps they are in debt. This was certainly true of the Walker family spies.

            How many American citizens were convicted of spying for the Soviet Union or another Communist country during the Cold War? Of these, how many were members of the American Communist Party?

            I do not know the answer to that question. If you could supply it, and document your assertion with a credible authority, you would contribute to this discussion.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I am not going to fall for this technique — which you used on me the first time we quarreled — where you send me on endless errands for you.

            PARTY MEMBERSHIP = ESPIONAGE

          • JohnEngelman

            During the Cold War an American who was serious about spying for the Soviet Union would not join the American Communist Party, where he would be watched. He would be active in the Republican Party in order to cover himself.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You made that up out of thin air, instead of actually learning something about the subject.

            Now I know why you are so reluctant to read the books recommended to you by people who recognize there is a n enormous void in your knowledge involving subjects on which you routinely (and gratuitously) pontificate…!

          • Earl P. Holt III

          • Earl P. Holt III

          • JohnEngelman

            You are afraid of Communist ideas. I am not. You are in favor of censoring political discussion. I am not. I believe that in the marketplace of ideas, democracy is more attractive than totalitarianism. You do not seem to.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            A typical DIVERSIONARY tactic:

            I’m not in favor of censoring anything: I LOVE that T. Jefferson quote on AmRen. I just want to prosecute — to the full extent of the law — all those who spy against the U.S. to benefit an enemy power, particularly a totalitarian one.

            Don’t intentionally misstate what I say: It makes you look even more dishonest, intellectually…

          • JohnEngelman

            We agree that spies deserve to be apprehended, prosecuted, and punished.

            However, as a result of the McCarthy hearings many Communist Party members and Communist sympathizers who were not guilty of espionage had their careers destroyed.

            If you think that was wrong, we agree further. If you approve of that, you believe that ideas you disagree with should be suppressed.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Changing the subject, and backpedaling, as usual.

            I do not believe that any INNOCENT individuals had their careers destroyed as a result of McCarthy’s Hearings: Those who did were guilty beyond even an unreasonable doubt. You may allege otherwise, but that is because you KNOW NOTHING about the subject…

          • JohnEngelman

            Communist Party members and Communist sympathizers who did not engage in espionage were innocent.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            None of them were innocent: They all knew what they were doing. That’s why the Comintern “chartered” them…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            In fact, the reason McCarthy picked up the gauntlet was because there had been endless initiatives to remove communists from the federal government, yet, when McCarthy came to Washington, every one of them was still there.

            Most had simply been nominally fired, and then re-hired at essentially the same position and function, most at the State Department where you claim there were none…

          • JohnEngelman

            Communist Party members, like those like me who contribute to American Renaissance, have every right to work for the government, every right to teach in schools and universities, and every right to work in the popular culture.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Well, actually they DID NOT: Both parties were so concerned about communist penetration at State, Treasury, the OSS (later CIA) and a host of other agencies, that they made it illegal to hire communists in those agencies, or in the federal government, or made their firing easier.

            The Hatch Act, Public Law 135, and the McCarran Rider either made it illegal to hire “those who advocated the overthrow of our Constitutional form of government,” or else made it easier to fire them.

          • JohnEngelman

            The vast majority of civil service positions do not give the civil servant access to classified information. There was no legitimate reason to keep Communist Party members from getting these positions if they were otherwise qualified.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Once hired, the enormous number of fellow communists in the Roosevelt Administration aggressively hired, promoted and transferred their proteges, until some agencies — such as State — were indistinguishable from communist party “cells”…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You are showing an incredible lack of knowledge about this subject: I guess your endurance is impressive, but so was that of the defenders of Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            WHY McCARTHY DID WHAT HE DID:

            Despite all the testimony of former communists who named names before the HUAC, despite the Hatch Act and Public Law 135, despite the Klaus Memo and Lee and Biddle Lists, and despite the new and expedited means of removing security risks at State in the form of the McCarran Rider, practically every federal employee who had ever been exposed as a communist was still employed by the federal
            government in 1950 when Senator McCarthy arrived in Washington.

            In many instances, these security risks were simply permitted to resign, but were then immediately rehired by the federal government,
            frequently at their original agencies. For all intents and purposes, there was no security vetting of federal employees during the Roosevelt and Truman Administrations: Indeed, Communist Party
            membership appears to have been a resume` enhancer rather than a hindrance to employment at State. Thus did Joe McCarthy seize the gauntlet and begin the process which, sadly and wrongfully lead to his own demise …

          • JohnEngelman

            Joe McCarthy did what he did in order to exploit fear, anger, and hatred in order to become famous and powerful.

            Many Americans overestimated the danger of Communism. They wanted to blame the Roosevelt administration for the fact that the Soviet Union occupied Eastern Europe, and that China was now Communist China.

            The truth of the matter was that the Soviet Army had conquered Eastern Europe in response to the German invasion. The Communists won their civil war in China because Mao Tse Tung was a more effective political and military leader than Chain Kai Chek. The Roosevelt administration had nothing to do with it.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Your head is so far up your rectum, you need a neuro-proctologist because your brain isn’t getting enough oxygen.

            You spout the standard communist party line, verbatim…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            The Soviet Army was given Eastern Europe by one of those guys in the State Department you don’t believe was a communist — even though he was both a GRU and an NKVD agent — namely Alger Hiss.

            Hiss was the entire show at Yalta, and every conservative who has ever known that we gave away the store at Yalta NOW knows why, although inveterate readers of the NEW YORK TIMES may never know…

          • JohnEngelman

            No body gave the Soviet Army anything. They conquered Eastern Europe fair and square while suffering high casualties fighting Nazi Germany.

          • They also conquered eastern Poland in 1939 “fair and square”, and kept it.

          • JohnEngelman

            My point is not that the Soviets were justified in imposing Communist dictatorships on Eastern European countries. My point is that no one in the Roosevelt administration allowed them to do it.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I guess the NEW YORK TIMES has never mentioned the Yalta Conference…

          • JohnEngelman

            The Yalta Conference gave each of the allies jurisdiction over countries they occupied.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            The Yalta Conference handed over Eastern European countries — many with long histories of Constitutional Monarchies — and placed them irretrievably in the Soviet Orbit for 45 years, to the profound detriment of all of them…

          • JohnEngelman

            One more time.

            The Yalta Conference did not give the Russians anything they did not already have. The only way to get the Russians out of Eastern Europe was by military force. There was virtually no support for that in the West. The eventual outcome would have been uncertain.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I guess you could say that “the Soviets had already invaded” all those Eastern European countries, but that didn’t give them any legitimate authority to make them satellites of the Soviet Union.

            There were other ways to force the Soviets to relinquish Easter Europe, but they were never implemented because Alger Hiss, a GRU and NKVD agent of the Soviet Union, was the “whole show” at Yalta.

            The Soviets had experienced massive destruction of the major western cities by the Wehrmacht, and were in desperate need of Western aid. We COULD HAVE threatened to withhold any post-war aid to the Soviets or their satellites: Instead, we condoned their seizing of Eastern Europe, and then began a seemingly endless flow of Western funds to prop up the Soviet regime, allowing them to be the most aggressive and expansionist dictatorship in modern history…

          • JohnEngelman

            “[T]he most aggressive and expansionist dictatorship in modern history” was Nazi Germany.

            What do you think of Nazi Germany? What do you think of Adolf Hitler?

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I think the Nazis and Hitler were indistinguishable from Stalin and the Soviet Communists, and I was not the least bit surprised to learn that both Hitler and Stalin felt they had found “someone they could really trust” in each other. The Hitler-Stalin Pact was just the joining of like-minded forces for a common goal. They were the same kettle of fish.

            If you are trying to insinuate that I am some sort of “Nazi,” you are badly mistaken. I believe in pluralistic democracy, a Republican form of government, and capitalism as a necessary precondition for either to exist.

            Yet, while I am completely candid about my politics, I see that you failed to answer the question of whether you, your parents, or a spouse had ever been a CPUSA member. Very curious…

          • JohnEngelman

            If I, my parents, or a spouse were members of the American Communist Party I would say so. I have known members of the CPUSA. I have always liked them.

            Years ago I attended a fascinating seminar on Das Kapital given by the Washington, DC Chapter of the CPUSA. I already owned all three volumes of Das Kapital, along with much else of the reading material.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I think you have sufficient honor that I believe this.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            That’s the party line, and it is a lie. Don’t you ever get weary of merely parroting the lies of the communist party?

          • I hate Communists and want to kill them, rather than having them sign oaths they will never respect. You should thus understand that there is another way we can do this.

          Only those on the right are punished or ridiculed. Certainly McCarthy was. Those on the right are not allowed to play the game. And only those on the right are ever punished.

      • JohnEngelman

        The House Un-American Activities Committee was similar to the Southern Poverty Law Center. HUAC suppressed political dissent. SPLC does so today. HUAC was more dangerous, because it was backed up by governmental power.

        • “HUAC…was backed up by governmental power.”

          Unofficially, so is the SPLC. It has something of a symbiotic relationship with Federal law enforcement.

        • LHathaway

          McCarthy never called for anyone to be fired. He was merely about uncovering the truth.

          Look at what shows up on television, just for one thing. Tell me these things shouldn’t be regulated? You’re right, though, some kind of unamerican activities commission might rule any kind of way, there’s no telling. We should accept their ruling. Just as it’s said, ‘children want to be disciplined (or at least have standards of fair play, because even the largest child understands another child may show up who is even larger and stronger)”. We already have city councils, state legislators and congress. We already have the means in place. We simply need to activate this latent potential.

          I remember someone saying, ‘Criticizing Oprah Winfrey is unamerican’. I replied something like, “I think that should be up to the unamerican activities commission, don’t you”?

          Freedom is one thing, but people need to be protected from being exploited (lefties can agree with that. They can agree that peoples money needs protected, from corporations). I’m sorry, call me a ‘nanny’ but people need protected. They even need (and perhaps especially need) protected from themselves. That’s why there are speed limits, and laws against gambling, drug use and prostitution. People need to be protected, along with (not unlimited) freedom, so they can at least appreciate and be more comfortable with their freedoms and their lives?

    • JohnEngelman

      Joe McCarthy said card carrying Communists were State Department officials. That was not true.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        THAT is the biggest lie I have ever heard in my life. You have clearly failed to read ANYTHING on the subject. Even the Jewish academics who have investigated the subject found dozens of Communists in the State Department. Here are just a few at the VERY TOP of FDR’s State Department, WITH their Soviet Code-Names from VENONA:

        They were Harry Dexter White (“Jurist,”) Solomon Adler (“Sachs,”) Harold Glasser (“Ruble,”) Frank Coe (“Peak,”) William H. Taylor (“Acorn,”) and Sonia Gold (“Zhenia.”)

        All but Taylor were not only communist spies, they were also Jews. (Harry Dexter White was the son of Lithuanian Jews, who changed his name when they came to the U.S. )

        Btw, this list does not even include Alger Hiss, a spy run by both the GRU and NKVD, who helped us “win the war but lose the peace” because he was the sole negotiator at Yalta. (Secretary of State Stettinius had been on the job for two months, and FDR had experienced a series of strokes, and sat there drooling and staring off into space for most of the conference that gave away Eastern Europe to the Soviets.)

        You really ARE hopeless…!

        • JohnEngelman

          On several occasions I have said that Communist espionage was a legitimate concern, but Communist subversion was not. McCarthy claimed that Communist Party members were State Department officials. That was not true.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            That was not only true, it has been established beyond the doubts of any honest and sane person. Even those silly Jewish academics who gratuitously attacked Stan Evans — and had their heads handed to them — acknowledge that there were dozens of Soviet spies in the State Department during W.W. II…

            You could work for TASS or PRAVDA during the Cold War…Maybe you did…!

          • JohnEngelman

            How many members of the American Communist Party were
            State Department officials? Document your assertion.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I named the 108 (exact #?) from McCarthy’s files, but you ignored it, and it was soon removed. I’m not gonna do it again…

          • JohnEngelman

            There were never 108 card carrying members of the Communist Party working as State Department officials. If there had been, they had every right to work for the Stat Department. If they had the United States may have avoided the War in Vietnam, and the Iranian Revolution.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            There were, in fact: It is called the “Lee List.” You should read about it sometime…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            I named eight of them (and their Soviet Code-Names) at the very top of the Department: Did you bother to check any of them, or did you immediately sit down to ask some question to engage in a diversion…?

          • JohnEngelman

            McCarthy claimed that over fifty State Department officials were members of the American Communist Party. That was a lie.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            No, it was an underestimate, The real number — found in the “Lee List” which you know nothing about — was 108 or 105 or something close to either of these…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Yeah, the number was 108…(See “Lee List.”)

          • JohnEngelman

            The Lee list was also the source of McCarthy’s famous list of 57 “cardcarrying Communists” in the State Department.[6] In 1948, the State Department had informed the House that of the 108 cases flagged by Lee, 57 were still working for the department. This list included persons whom Lee had deemed security risks for a variety of reasons, such as marital infidelity or drunkenness, and all of them had been cleared by the State Department’s review process.

            In response to these allegations, the Tydings Committee hearings were held, opening on March 8, 1950 and lasting until July 17. At the hearings, McCarthy expanded on his original list of unnamed individuals and made charges against nine others whose names he made public: Dorothy Kenyon, Esther Brunauer, Haldore Hanson, Gustavo Duran, Owen Lattimore,Harlow Shapley, Frederick L. Schuman, John S. Service and Philip Jessup. Some of these people no longer, or never had, worked for the State Department, and all had previously been the subject of various charges of varying worth and validity. Owen Lattimore became a particular focus of McCarthy’s, who at one point described him as a “top Russian spy.”[5]

            Throughout the hearings, McCarthy employed colorful rhetoric. He was able to produce no objective proof of any kind to support his accusations but instead relied on testimonies from Communists and ex-Communists in presenting his case to the public.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            “Colorful rhetoric,” you say…?

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You have a lot of catching up to do: I’m pleased that you are finally reading something about the issue, rather than merely parroting “The Party LIne,” so to speak.

            OF COURSE there was no independent and corroborative proof beyond the testimony of former communists, because no one had any idea that Army Intelligence had succeeded in translating coded cables to its spies in the Roosevelt Administration. Nor were FBI Counter-Intelligence files available, because no one knew the FBI was doing this.

            Even Truman was never told about VENONA. In fact, Harry Truman was the first President to claim Executive Privilege, when he had all State Department personnel files brought to the White House, so investigators could not review them.

            Meanwhile, the “Democrat” Party did everything it could to frustrate McCarthy, particularly Millard Tydings (D-MD) and William Benton (D-CN,) who were afraid that if there was full disclosure regarding the extent of Soviet penetration of the Federal Government, the American People might get the wrong idea about the “Democrats.” In this, they were willing to allow the Soviet Union to run the federal government, just so long as the “Democrat” Party was allowed to remain the majority party.

            The point is that McCarthy was correct, down to the last dot and tittle.

            John, your tenacity at continuing to play the “losingest” hand in history compels me to ask: Were YOU ever a CPUSA member, or were your parents or spouse…?

          • JohnEngelman

            Does VENOMA say that everyone on the Lee List was a member of the American Communist Party? If it did, document your assertion with a credible source.

            Keep in mind that I do not think there would have been anything wrong with a Communist Party member working for the government, as long as he or she did not have access to classified information.

            Awhile ago I asked you how many American citizens were convicted of espionage during the Cold War, and of these how many were members of the American Communist Party. You never got back to me.

            Communist espionage is the issue here. Decent people had good reasons to oppose a war with the Soviets after World War II. The had good reasons to oppose American military intervention in the Chinese Civil War.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            No: Only 3,000 of approximately 300,000 coded cables could be read by Army Intel. Despite this, hundreds upon hundreds of Soviet spies WERE identified, most of them in the Roosevelt Administration.

            You must feel that if you repeat something often enough to me, I will accept it, even though I know it to be a lie. Disinformation experts have used this technique since Josef Goebbels, but it does not work with people who are immune to such techniques.

            As I have demonstrated BEYOND EVEN AN UNREASONABLE DOUBT to any honest person — using the Comintern’s OWN documents as evidence — the Comintern’s sole purpose in chartering an American Communist Party was to aid and assist Soviet Espionage in America.

            If you would like, I will — once again — reprint the 21 preconditions required by the Comintern for the establishment of an American Communist Party…

          • JohnEngelman

            You still provide no documentation.

            Let me ask once again. During the Cold War how many American citizens were convicted of spying for the Soviet Union, or another Communist Country? Of these, how many were members of the American Communist Party?

            Those are honest questions. I do not know the answers.If you could provide the answers along with documentation from a credible source, you could advance this discussion.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            John, you started this debate by stating that (paraphrase) “there were no communists in the State Department.”

            I’m not going to indulge any more of the “snipe”hunts” that you request, because it is obvious that no matter what the evidence provided, you will deny it with the same vigor party members denied the guilt of Alger Hiss or the Rosenbergs, or any of a large number of other traitors of equal guilt.

            All this has done is to reinforce a strong conviction that I have always harbored, mainly that there is no such thing as objective truth in the mind of every Marxist, and that lying, obfuscating, prevaricating and dissembling is what you and all other Marxists excel at…

          • JohnEngelman

            I read every political thinker for insight, rather than doctrine. I am not a Marxist, because I believe that some of Karl Marx’ assertions were invalid.

            Karl Marx never claimed infallibility. When he learned that others did on his behalf he said, “I thank God that I am not a Marxist.”

          • Earl P. Holt III

            John, I know you won’t take my word for it — you would argue if I told you that the Sun was the epicenter of our Solar System — but “liberals” ARE MARXISTS.

            They are just one of many variants — usually with a very naive Fabian Socialist element — who believe it is possible to implement Marxian redistribution schemes without the violence that Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, (et alia) found indispensable…

          • JohnEngelman

            One should read a political thinker for insight, rather than doctrine. Karl Marx had valid insights. He also made mistakes.

            The problem with Marxists, and I have known many, liked most, and argued with some, is that they think Marx was infallible.

            Marx did not think he was infallible. He once said, “I thank God that I am not a Marxist.”

          • Earl P. Holt III

            The problem with Marxists is that they have been handed a blue-print to return to a feudal, command economy without the agrarian charm…

          • JohnEngelman

            The Soviet government lifted Russia from semi feudalism to the space age, while helping us to defeat Nazi Germany.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            We transferred almost as much wealth to the Soviets as we have transferred to the nigros. I would be astonished if the principal of any loan to them was ever repaid…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            That’s a “Red Herring.” There were very few convictions for espionage during the Cold War, but that is because the hard evidence was not available until Stan Evans (and others) sued under the FOIA to gain access to VENONA. Alger Hiss was convicted of Perjury rather than espionage, although his greatest misdeeds were spying for the GRU and NKVD.

          • JohnEngelman

            Still no documentation.

          • JohnEngelman

            This is Joseph Stalin’s response to Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech. Although Stalin’s apprehensions were unjustified, his reasoning was understandable. It is the way any Russian leader would have probably responded to the Nazi invasion, even if that leader had been the son of Czar Nicholas II.

            ———–

            In substance, Mr. Churchill now stands in the position of a firebrand of war. And Mr. Churchill is not alone here. He has friends not only in England but also in the United States of America…

            As a result of the German invasion, the Soviet Union has irrevocably lost in battles with the Germans, and also during the German occupation and through the expulsion of Soviet citizens to German slave labor camps, about 7,000,000 people. In other words, the Soviet Union has lost in men several times more than Britain and the United States together…

            One can ask therefore, what can be surprising in the fact that the Soviet Union, in a desire to ensure its security for the future, tries to achieve that these countries should have governments whose relations to the Soviet Union are loyal? How can one, without having lost one’s reason, qualify these peaceful aspirations of the Soviet Union as “expansionist tendencies” of our Government?

          • Earl P. Holt III

            108, found in the “Lee List” that McCarthy waved on the Senate Floor…

          • JohnEngelman

            McCarthy presented a case-by-case analysis of his 81 “loyalty risks” employed at the State Department. It is widely accepted that most of McCarthy’s cases were selected from the so-called “Lee list”, a report that had been compiled three years earlier for the House Appropriations Committee. Led by a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent named Robert E. Lee, the House investigators had reviewed security clearance documents on State Department employees, and had determined that there were “incidents of inefficiencies”[41] in the security reviews of 108 employees. McCarthy hid the source of his list, stating that he had penetrated the “iron curtain” of State Department secrecy with the aid of “some good, loyal Americans in the State Department”.[42] In reciting the information from the Lee list cases, McCarthy consistently exaggerated, representing the hearsay of witnesses as facts and converting phrases such as “inclined towards Communism” to “a Communist”.[43]

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Turns out he was correct, too…!

          • JohnEngelman

            The Lee List was not full of Communist Party members. It consisted of the names of people who for any reason might be security risks.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Most were Party Members, or attended “Front” Group meetings established by CPUSA Operatives.

          • JohnEngelman

            Even if that is true, which I doubt, few if any were guilty of espionage. Espionage is the issue, not pro Communist opinions.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Like I said, communism and Soviet espionage were indivisible. I have proved this to the satisfaction of even UNreasonable people, but I guess I will just have to wait for your epiphany…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Like I’ve said 20 times, communism = espionage. That is why the Comintern set up those 21 preconditions before recognizing the American Communist Party.

          • JohnEngelman

            You have never documented that assertion.

            I have known and liked members of the American Communist Party. I am confident none of them were spies.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            (Sigh) Yes I have — many times — and will do so again…

          • JohnEngelman

            You have not provided links to credible sources of data.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Preconditions established by the Comintern for recognition by Moscow are found in: “Thesis on the Conditions of Admission to the Communist International,” found in “Theses, Resolutions and Manifestos of the First Four Congresses of the Third International.” London, Inks Press, (1980) p.3.

            (Found in Klehr, Haynes and Firsov. “The Secret World of American Communism.” Yale University Press (1995,) footnote on page 21.

            Happy reading — or at least the truth will set you free…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            At its founding convention in 1919, the CPUSA adopted a “manifesto” declaring that “Communism” does not propose to ‘capture’ the bourgeois parliamentary state, but to conquer and destroy it…”

            To this end, they immediately set about establishing the 21 preconditions required by the Comintern for admission and recognition by Moscow: These included large cash transfers from the Comintern to the CPUSA to secretly fund member parties, the creation of secret courier services, establishment of secret mail-drops, secret short-wave radio exchanges with Moscow, the use of false identification, and the recruitment of “promising” individuals for Soviet espionage activities.

            Among these 21 conditions required for admission to its ranks, the
            Comintern in 1920 stipulated that all communist parties create an
            illegal “…organizational apparatus which, at the decisive moment, can assist the Party to do its duty to the revolution.”

            With such organizational structures in place, the the replacement of amateur CPUSA operatives with seasoned and sophisticated professionals from the GRU or NKVD was predictable and inevitable. As academicians Klehr, Haynes and Firsov observe in “The Secret World of American Communism,” these security precautions “…provided communists with training in clandestine procedures that were readily adaptable to the needs of Soviet intelligence agencies.” (p.34)

            I wasn’t able to find a specific notarized document signed by Felix Dzerzinsky averring that “For our purposes, the only role the CPUSA played was to assist us in espionage against the United States and its government,” but this SHOULD suffice, even for UNREASONABLE people such as yourself…

          • JohnEngelman

            The American Communist Party never had the ability to carry out those plans (if indeed it ever made them).

            Even if the American Communist Party said all that stuff, it has has changed. I have demonstrated that by quoting from their website. What has not changed is the demagoguery of anti Communists who exploit fear of a harmless organization to discredit the Democratic Party.

            Behind the efforts of anti Communists to suppress the ability of Communist Party members and Communist sympathizers to spread their opinions is the fear that those opinions are more attractive than the opinions of the anti Communists.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            They could and did carry out those plans, to an extent that would shock even you if you had the guts to really investigate the subject. (Yes: That’s a challenge!)

            The CPUSA may well have changed, but that’s NOT the issue: The issue was its characteristics from the late 1930s through the early 1950s. (I know you are smarter than this: Why do you engage in such obvious diversionary tactics? Is it so important to win a debate at any cost, even when the truth is a casualty?)

            In a dishonest age where the Corrupt Leftist Media is an agent of ANY Marxist, anywhere, the lies and illusions and Utopian visions painted by Marxists — such as the dirt-bag in the White House — can easily attract an ignorant and greedy and stupid electorate of browns and blacks, and lead us to our detriment.

            That’s why I want FULL DISCLOSURE about the history of the CPUSA, an objective you fight with the tenacity of Alger Hiss…

          • JohnEngelman

            The American Communist Party was not responsible for the Soviet conquest of Eastern Europe. It was not responsible for the Communist victory in the Chinese civil war.

            There was never any danger that a Communist dictatorship would govern the United States.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            These are all a diversionary tactic, and obvious as well.

            You are even wrong about China, but I suspect you will never know why until you read Stan Evans’ “Blacklisted by History,” which will only occur if it is reprinted on the NYT Editorial Pages…

          • JohnEngelman

            American intervention in the Chinese civil war would have been even more disastrous for the United States than American intervention in Vietnam.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            We could have successfully supported Chiang Kai-shek instead of Mao, who was busy collaborating with the Japs: Unfortunately, Mao was the favorite choice of the hundreds of communist spies in the Treasury and State Departments.

            Without any authorization other than their handlers in Moscow, the State Department’s John Stewart Service (Soviet Code-name unknown) conspired with Harry Dexter White (Soviet Code-name “Richard”) and Treasury Attache` Solomon Adler (Soviet Code-name “Sachs”) to unilaterally cut-off $200 Million in gold promised to Chiang by FDR.

            Without this hard currency, Chiang could not finance his simultaneous campaigns against the Japs and Mao’s communist forces, compelling him to flee to Formosa. (Stan Evans. “Blacklisted by History.”)

            As most investigators have pointed out, the goal of the Soviets was NOT to merely steal documents, it was to place agents in positions where they could influence policy. This they did by favoring Mao over Chiang, and as seen earlier in orchestrating the catastrophe known as “Yalta”…

          • JohnEngelman

            When I was a teenager I took Tang Soo Do lessons from a Korean who had been drafted into the Japanese Army during World War II. He never told me that Mao collaborated with with the Japanese. He told me that Communist Chinese soldiers were tough fighters.

            The Communists won fairly in China, just as they did in Eastern Europe. Communist sympathizers working for the U.S. government had nothing to do with it.

          • Earl P. Holt III

  • Raymond Kidwell

    A few of my comments: One I like the brown suit. Two: whites still oppose white consciousness because it presents itself as a hate philosophy and the comments below many articles give credence to that. It’s all about how something is framed or presented, but also still the core of active white consciousness supporters seem to be rather hostile towards non-whites or make offensive statements towards them. Next: while political goals are certainly desirable the focus should be on “How can we make money”. How can members cooperate together to start businesses or empower other members to gain higher positions of power or more wealth, and then redirect that wealth back into the movement. Politics is money these days. You should include lectures on white business networks, helping race realists graduate college, business networking etc. along with political speeches. Even if you are dealing with a wealthy constituency it probably isn’t enough wealth to fund massive political/public relations campaigns or compete with the big money of the opposition. That gets to the next topic: public relations/propaganda. There should be speeches, discussions, and coordinated action in regards to learning better PR techniques, and advertisement. One topic would be to find a small area where you think you CAN make a change in attitudes and opinions and target a bombardment of advertisements and other PR in that area and see if there is any success in changing attitudes.

    In other words the meetings seem focused on political goals, why white race realism is desirable and some off the cusp social theories. What is missing: business lectures, lectures on public relations, and any real fund raiser or real life activity (like a college fund for aspiring members). You need to focus on recruiting new young talent. This means finding freshman in political science or law majors at colleges and universities and trying to persuade them to join the team. That is one PR/Recruitment speech that needs to be explored. You also need to take existing members and find ways to expand their wealth from the fast food worker to the millionaire businessman, all of them can be richer and therefore have more disposable income to direct towards the movement.

    • Great to see some different stances on tactics. I am not sure that they could all be fulfilled, but I do appreciate the approaches you are proposing in general and it would be a very different (and practical) set of goals to what occurs at the moment.

      I read elsewhere about the debate as to whether politics or activism/community building is the way forward.

      On this, I think that people need to be pragmatic about both. It can not be solely one thing or the other, I think. Be rational about what can be achieved within the ‘system’, but do not place all hopes or activity on that route.

      Adding a third teir to expand influence in society and in politics in the future sounds like a decent one. Even if it inadvertantly/ultimately attracted the wrong sorts of individuals, I don’t think it can be denied that there are lot of people out there today who are happy to push our opposition forward because it makes them personal gains.

      Cheers.

      • Raymond Kidwell

        What I am proposing is a simple adjustment. Include speeches that veer into other topics. Example: a speech/discussion regarding relevant PR tactics for race realists during the conference. A speech on community organizing, one on wealth etc. Most actual activities will need to come from the grass roots level. But by exploring relevant tactics/stances during a centralized meaning it helps get the various individuals working in a similar way.

  • We are all for the love!

  • LHathaway

    What does Mr. Taylor say?

    In a world where people of color ‘give back’, ‘raise consciousness’, organize by race and favor their own, and Whites favor them, too, he stresses that, ‘it’s only natural’ favoring one’s own kind, and likely some kind of iron law.
    .

    If a world where Whites are paralyzed by guilt, he raises White guilt when discussing issues like MLK, reminding us those on the far right are guilty.

    Who is Mr. Taylor’s true audience?

    In a world where racial equality is a national religion (and it has certainly been discussed many times here) Mr. Taylor inexplicably ties White rights to the acceptance of White biological racial supremacy – the very one thing that keeps Whites jumping on the bandwagon. Mr. Taylor knows this more than anyone.

    Obviously an American Renaissance won’t occur thru the American Renaissance organization. Neither will the fight for White rights.

    I didn’t attend the conference and hear Mr. Taylor speak nor have I even read the full transcript but that’s what I got out of it.

    Admittedly, Mr. Taylor’s ‘Banned in Halifax’ speech was truly impressive, incredibly impressive. Some of his other talks have been very impressive also including some of his recent ones.

      There was one very obese black male protestor.

    These video conferences really don’t work very well. It’s like watching a TV show.

    The key is to get off the couch, stop typing on a computer key board and get out in the real world, meet, greet, network.

  • TruthBeTold

    I watched the Latvia torch march.

    A sea of proud White people. Beautiful, emotional, and moving.

      Estonia has a fighting chance at becoming an all-white country, too. I sure hope those little countries ban together and assemble a few nukes for protection. Maybe Vladmir can loan them a few?

        Hello!

    Here’s one of the pics from the party after the banquet. It was an awesome time. Anyone who is skeptical about going, don’t be. It was my first conference and I absolutely loved it. I went there not knowing anyone and I left with tons of new friends with similiar racial views. Not to mention meeting Jared Taylor and RamZPaul.

    There is an uncommonly high percentage of obese, ugly, and disgusting-looking people in the group of protesters in that picture.

    They passed me on I-40. Maroon Nissan NC tag: BCN1398. Hooptie is most likely registered to daddy. The girl holding the BREATE sign was in the passenger seat.

  • Unless you are an admitted multiculturalist trying to push your views on others or some type of antifa, then I have no real animosity toward you. I have a good percentage of Irish and Italian ancestry, so heated arguments are pretty much part and parcel of my communication techniques. You’re just going to have to take my word for it when I tell you that I only argue with those that I either truly hate and believe to be dangerous, or I argue with those that I believe have some semblance of sanity and an ability to possibly be open to parallel lines of logic and truth. There are two different approaches/styles I take for two very different types of people. Trust me, you will know the difference in argument styles when you see it, and you will be able to tell whether I’m mad or hate you.

    I’m sure some things can get misinterpreted and lost in translation, and I certainly wouldn’t argue with you when you say that you can find plenty of bias here. We’re just gonna have to agree to disagree and come to the conclusion that bias in the form of upvotes and non-recognition of certain non-White accomplishments means a lot more to you than it does to me.

    I think you change certain behaviors once you have given those people a real sense of pride. Pride, as you probably already know, is the ultimate sin if you are a White man in today’s politically correct world. If society makes it impossible for someone to love themselves or makes it to where they are supposed to deny their own accomplishments and position in the world, then how are you supposed to instill into them true love and respect for the accomplishments of others?

    “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”

    — Gautama Buddha

    So when you strip away the ability for someone to love themselves and whatever they see as worthy of preserving(self, family, traditions, etc.), what do you end up with? I say you end up with a creature with a warped sense of pride that overstates his accomplishments in order to compensate for a natural right that should have be given to him. It’s only natural that some of those people are going to deny to others what has been denied of them. Now I’m not being totally accurate to Buddhism by using that quote, but hopefully you see the point I’m trying to make.

  • It’s a pity I missed it, but it’s great that it was a success. Kudos to all who attended and participated.

  • Mack0

    You have to laugh at the “protesters”. The women are grossly obese and one of the idiots is carrying a black lives matter sign. Apparently he didn’t get the memo it was all bull.

  • tradisjn

    “black lives matter”

    If someone painted a wall white I bet they would show up with their signs as well.

  • Captain Bryant

  • Kris Chringle

    I didn’t know his name was Paul Ramsey. I thought he was a relative or Ron Paul.

    Not many sites or facilities in the Russian northern Far East near Alaska. Saint Peters Burg and Moscow have facilities, but not near Alaska or the USA. Also would be guaranteed problems about passports and visas from one government or the other, or both. Consider Richard Spencer’s adventure in supposedly free Hungary as a cautionary tale.

  • Cato

    According to the story (and it was very interesting and informative) there are videos of Sam Francis’ talks at the AmRen conferences. Is there a link to these online? I’ve never heard Sam Francis speak, and wonder what he was like.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    Some guy named Blair Naso attended for the first time:

    I remember the Marxists got more than they bargained for when the tangled with Richard Spencer in Whitefish, MT. The comments are overwhelmingly pro-Spencer. Including mine, ahem.

    This is a strength of true grass roots movements, we can try a wide variety of different approaches Some will not work, but others will. And the capable leaders and theoreticians will emerge, not necessarily because they hunger to lead. IMHO, the best leaders are reluctant; they just go their own way and find that people follow.

  • Although I am extremely jaded with the whole situation, I am still looking forward to seeing if some of the videos appear. Likewise for the recent London Forum, which gained notoriety here as being “the biggest nazi threat in decades” (according to ‘tell us a fable’ Gerry Gable).

    Richard Spencer needs to start eating paleo as well as supporting paleo politics. He’s putting on some weight.

  • Avi Marranazo

    So what is the potential risk to livelihood for a possible attendee? This has always been my primary concern–that someone would “out” me as a realist through the pix that are posted on the web.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      You can attend with an assumed name on your tag. The room, if you stay, is booked under your real name. There are two long time and trusted attendees that photograph the event, and they are respectful of attendees who don’t wish to be photographed. The back of your head might appear in video/stills- sit up front or. . . look generic? If you stand to ask a speaker a question during their presentation time, you will be videoed from the side.

      There are plenty of places besides right up front to park your car. The protests are tepid efforts. I have not read of a mole yet this year.

      I hope that helps.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      I regret I must amend, Avi.

      A friend called my attention to this over the weekend: http://www[DOT]splcenter[DOT]org/blog/2015/04/20/american-renaissance-conference-draws-record-audience/

      I am not fluent in crazy, but from what I can make out at the end, two attendees were possibly ‘outed’- ??? Make of it what you will.

      (I posted this earlier as a straight link- I hope that post dies in moderation, you SHOULD copy and paste to get there.)

  • Snakes on a Car

    I’m glad to hear that it was a good convention.

  • CVB

    Ramzpaul is an idiot. It’s kind of embarrassing that AmRen invites him so often.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      I think the post office is working on giving him his own stamp.

  • CVB

    Why does that fool feel the need to swear? Classless idiot.

  • Mentious

    Bravo, Jared, John, Peter and the others! The enemy knows in the gut that their mill lacks moral grist, and that White peoples have a valid cause.

    I wonder if David Yeagley’s legal battle with the anti-Whites ended him early. He did fight for us. I have to say I am sad that he did not live to see this signal conference. Maybe that battle of a Native American on our behalf played some role in taking the wind out of the antifa sails.

  • Eddie Garrett

    When will the videos be posted?

    “Mr. Ramsey likened the modern, globalized world to Calhoun’s rat
    dystopia. He speculated that diversity crowds the mental space in which
    people live, and may have the same effect as overpopulation.

    This is a tremendous articulation which I have never heard. It rings true. Explains in part why the most “diverse” places are also the least friendly. (“Bowling Alone”) People become jaded. Their eyes no longer see or appreciate the diversity inherent in their own natural group, yet at the same time they don’t truly care — after the first stupid thrill — about the ritual-scarred Nigerian or all the Chinese people jabbering outside their pedicure shop. The thrill is gone pretty quickly. In the long run a Leftess get no real joy from these foreigners. And she is left wondering why has no happy coffee klatsches with girlfriends any more, and no pool of men in natural brotherhood, tempt her along with her friends.

    This relates: According to “Dunbar’s Number,” we humans can maintain a network of only about 150 close friends. That’s a big, generous number if you ask me. So Ramsey has identified this other factor: The diversity itself is an amplifier leading to our new atomized dystopia.

    Fantastic as always, AmRen. Any idea when the DVD of the speeches will be available for purchase?

    • AngloBilly

      I’m another one who would gladly buy a copy!

      And maybe a second copy to bury in my metal box, so that an archaeologist finds it a few hundred years in the future! 🙂

  • Avi Marranazo

    Thank you…

  • Naps22

    Is there a video?
