The Best of American Renaissance in 2019

AR Staff, American Renaissance, December 31, 2019

Several dissident publications withered or shut down entirely in 2019. Two print publications, The Occidental Quarterly and The Social Contract, printed their last physical issues this month.

There has been a wave of censorship, deplatforming, and disdain, but American Renaissance has come out of 2019 stronger than ever. It was our first year with a full-time writer on staff from start to finish, and today American Renaissance’s staff is larger than ever, and our hard work is paying off.

Fifteen years ago AmRen was mostly known as a small-circulation print magazine and as an online news aggregator. Nine years ago, we shifted entirely to web, and five years ago, began making videos. Today, with our news, blogs, features, reviews, podcasts, videos, classic articles, and commentary, we are doing our best to make AmRen a one-stop website for everything related to immigration, crime, genetics, and identity.

Next year will be even bigger and better. A few things to look forward to:

  • Every Saturday, we expect to publish several news items, along with a roundup of the best comments on the site from the prior week.
  • We will publish original content six days a week, and sometimes seven.
  • We expect to publish a new book — details to come.
  • We will greatly improve the archives — there are well over 40,000 posts items — and make navigation much easier.

For now, here is a brief list of the AR Staffs’ favorite essays and reviews from 2019.

We thank all our readers and supporters for a very successful 2019, and wish you a very happy 2020!
