New Website for American Renaissance

American Renaissance, December 31, 2011

Welcome to our new website.

We have improved the look of the AmRen site and added new sections to give it depth—and we have tried to make these changes easy to understand for regular readers of the old site.

As before, the “News” is on the home page, but we have added two new sections: “Opinion,” which is composed of short, topical pieces and “Features,” which are longer articles. The slide show at the top of the home page refers to the latest “Features.”

We have a new comments system that should allow people who register through a social network such as Facebook to post comments that appear immediately. Those who prefer to comment anonymously are welcome to do so, but their comments will be moderated. We learn a great deal from reader comments, and hope you will continue to enrich our site with your insights.

A website makeover as radical as this is a major undertaking, and there are sure to be surprises. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, and hope you will let us know if you find problems.

But most of all we hope that you will find the new AmRen.com a vast improvement over the old, and that you will make our site your base for race-realist news and commentary.

    Beautiful new look.

    • Amren has been a favourite site of mine for years, even though I, as a denizen of the Third World, would be unwelcome in the US of A, being of Boer / Africaner stock. Thank you, nevertheless, Jared, and Henry – I especially enjoy the Disqus comments facility.

    Awesome!  You implemented Disqus!  Thank you web designer. 

    • We hope the new system will make it easier to comment, and we welcome your intpu.

        Thanks, Jared.  I loved your recent book. 

        • Always happy to hear that! I’ll let you know when I write another one.

            Mr Taylor – I purchased `Paved with Good Intentions` from Amazon, but they don’t have your more recent book on the site.  Why not, and where can I buy a copy in the UK?  Congratulations on the new-look website by the way, and please keep up the good work.

            Mr Taylor – I thoroughly enjoyed reading `Paved with Good Intentions` which I bought from Amazon.com, but they don’t stock your more recent book.  Why not, and where can I purchase a copy in the UK?  Congratulations on the excellent new-look site by the way, and keep up the good work.

        Jared, how does one post anon?  From what I can tell you have to have your email address, name coming from yahoo or some social network??? I am older and do not understand all this stuff . I still like the old format.

        • I know it is important to be able to comment anonymously. I am not an expert on how this works, but I think that you fill in your comment and then when you hit the “Post As”button, you can put in an anonymous handle as well as a fake e-mail address. But I am not sure. I will try it and see. This is all new to me, too.

          • Anonymous

            Just try to guess my password and you can post as anonymous_amren.  Fake emails don’t work, which is why you can’t post as AnonymousAmren.

        • BJ

          Why is there the “edit” next to my reply to Jared?  I don’t see that on any other comment?

      • Disqus is good. Intense Debate is even better. Also don’t forget WordPress and OpenID. Antiwar.com allows for multiple login options to post comments; check out their original articles to see how their system works.

    Do not like it one bit. The old one was so much easier and easier to read the COMMENTS! This is just another way to the  “social network” sites having to post your email and password. How can one post anon if they have to enter their email? You will get all kinds of lefties now. I quit posting comments on the Yahoo news articles because it got to be too exhausting trying to read them all and all the “sort by” etc.etc. Real crazies post comments there. This is set up exactly as those yahoo articles are and I will no longer comment here at Amren. I won’t even bother reading Amren as I will no longer feel comfortable posting and why read the site if one cannot comment?

    • Anonymous

      You obviously set up or already had a Disqus account to comment here.   I’m not sure what the problem is.  I do not like yahoos comment user interface either but I assure you that Disqus is far superior.  If anyone replies to you, you are notified by email and you can look at the history of all your comments and replies at disqus.com.  From my experience of posting, disqus is the best UI out there and it’s more anonymous than sites that want to use your facebook account.  Just make a new email  if you are so worried.   If the government wants to find you, they will regardless of if you post anonymously or not.

        I just signed up for Disqus, and I’m having trouble getting it to upload my avatar.  Maybe it takes awhile to sync.

        • Ignore that, it finally showed up.  This is from Season 2 Episode 24 of Leave It To Beaver, “The Bus Ride.”  It’s a sop to the whole Jena, Louisiana issue.

        No, I did not have a Disqus account here to comment. I had to click on the yahoo acct which I did have., which I used to comment on the yahoo news articles but no longer do because I have always tried to avoid those forums that ask for one’s email address.  Sorry, but I do not trust such sites for good reason. I have always felt if you can post anon and not have to have your email listed then it may take a little longer for someone to try to get it if they do not like what you have to say. We all know by now that the internet is going to be used to “entrap” those who they consider “haters”.

          Well it’s a bit too late now. I guess Eric Holder is on his way to our houses to arrest us for hate crimes. LOL. I believe Mr. Taylor mentioned that there is a way to comment anonymously but they are getting the kinks out. Though even if you comment anonymously, the Feds can find out your IP address.

          • dd

            Maybe not on the way to your house just now but do you remember that at one time all Germans were asked “Were any of your grandparents Juden?”  Seems as innocent as asking for an email address, but as I recall it eventually had a very bad outcome.

      The old website looked ghetto and was not fitting for the “premiere race realist website”, nor was it presenting one of the best pro-White sites out there appropriately. The new site looks professional and will attract people who are tech-savvy enough who wont have a hard time navigating or using it. If it wasn’t for the outstanding content on the old site, I would’ve never frequented AmRen because the old design was abhorrent, and made me want to cringe with revulsion. People who are new visitors  have a better chance at actually spending some time here, and getting acquainted with a lot of the ideas , instead of fleeing at first sight of an outdated and decaying design that looks like some black kids in the ghetto of Buffalo,NY thought up.  I love how you can directly reply to someone now. I never bothered posting on AmRen because I always figured that the person I was responding to would never get around to my message, now, I am certain that they will, and from here on out, I’ll be posting more often.

    Great color scheme.

  • Why? I mean if it aint broke don’t fix it. Exactly what are you trying to attain by linking the comments to email?

    • BJ

      I totally agree thomask. 

      Now, I would like to know how to get rid of my BJ and email and start to post anon again? Is there anyway to do it or am I now stuck on amren with using this name and email coming from my Yahoo account (which I never liked in the first place). Is there any way to do this?

      I feel like we are being “tracked” by those whom we do not want to be tracked by. Maybe the whole internet experience is just a way to one day put us all “away”…privacy of one’s identity, is no longer an option when it comes to the internet , so I am seriously thinking of doing away with  it all. My gut tells me that we all may be sorry one day for ever expressing our true and righteous opinions on anything. Talk about our so-called freedom of speech and expression.

        BJ you can always go to a public library and post from the computer
        there if you are so paranoid you think the government is going to come
        looking for you.  Just get a free email acct. to do it. 

        As for the issue of ‘entrapment’, please remember that you (still) have
        5th Amendment Rights.  If someone asks me about what I was doing on the
        computer I would immediately tell them I want a lawyer and that I plan
        to plead the 5th… boom it will be very hard for them to physically
        connect you to something on the ‘net.  

        Stop being so dang paranoid, there are ways around these obstacles. 
        Stop the defeatism.  Leonidas and 300 Spartans didn’t sacrifice
        themselves for Western Civilization so you could just fritter everything
        away without even using your Constitutional Rights!

        • BJ

          Are you for real?  How many times have you ever read articles, commented and did any research on the net? You trust the government?  You trust that the 5th will still protect us? Who can afford a lawyer? Has the 1st protected anyone of late who puts forth “hate speech” (according to their definition). Ever hear of the Justice Dept or the FBI “PLANTING” info into one’s hard drive?  Maybe you need to talk to those in prison right now for political reasons. Maybe visit those sites such as the SPLC and the ADL for more info on what they are planning on doing to any of us who persist in White survival.

    I don’t like it. But I’ll try to be constructive.

    First what I do like: I like the way the article always fills the screen on my mobile phone perfectly. And I like the added depth of extra content.

    Now the problems: Mobile Mode doesn’t work properly. Mobile Mode doesn’t show the one-liner commentarty on the news articles, it doesn’t show the right things at the top of the page, and it’s just not compact enough. I recommend disabling Mobile Mode, since normal mode is great for mobile phones. But in either mode it’s impossible to post comments from Opera Mobile or Nokia’s web browser.

    The news headlines aren’t compact enough. The old site showed the news headlines very well. The old site felt like it was taylor-made for AmRen’s needs. The new site feels like an off-the-shelf product designed for leftists and minorities to fill their emotional needs rather than for constructive work. And I think it makes it much, much too hard to comment anonymously, which isn’t good.

    One more thing I like, I notice you no-longer say you’re going to censor criticism of Christianity. That’s a big improvement, since before it made your awesome Jefferson quote look hypocritical. Science and reason are white people’s greatest triumphs, and what distinguishes them from “minorities”. Extreme religious devotion is more a minority thing. I hope thoughtful reasoned comments on religion will now be allowed, including the sorts of comparisons you find on sites like Audacious Epigone that HBD followers find interesting.

    • BJ

      Why do you, A_A, like the idea that Amren will no longer censor criticism of Christianity?  Christians seem to be fair game all over this country and the world.

       How about no longer censoring criticism of Judaism, Islam, or any other group of “people”? Let us be fair.

      • Anonymous

        Let me, the poster formerly known as “Whiteplight” comment here on this topic.  Historically, the criticism of Christianity was exactly because of the ideals that the above Anonymous poster listed.  The greatest achievement of the West and whites has been to conquer the irrational mind.  Our Founding Fathers, although steeped in a culture of Christianity knew this and were perhaps some of the representatives of the zenith of human achievement.  When chided for being late, Washington ceased attending church, and most know Jefferson’s thoughts regarding the necessary division of religion and state in order for a representative democracy to flourish.  It is also quite true that quoting Jefferson and then refusing to allow comment on a prominent subject obviously ripe for discussion is anti-Jeffersonian and hypocritical.  I congratulate Amren for taking this step and being courageous enough to be true to their claimed convictions.

        The criticism of Christianity, especially some of its manifestations, has long been a tradition in the West.  It led to such things as freedom of the press, freedom of speech and assembly, and some of the liberties that traditionalist Americans take for granted, including the right to bear arms.   The struggle toward such freedoms took a long time to achieve in Europe due to the force of Church control over all society and their support of the notion that a chosen few had the God given right to rule.  It is obvious to some of us regular posters that Christianity poses an existential threat to whites, primarily through the weakness  in asserting ethnic and racial exclusiveness via scripture, but also in its forgetfulness of our full Western experience.  Indeed, the path to our future will be cut with a razor or likely, not at all.

        However, concurrently, you and all concerned may rest assured that my view of other religions is just as severe, or more so.  However, they don’t post here as whites interested in preserving the white race, we KNOW they are our enemies.  And our enemies know all too well how to use our weaknesses against us.  I submit that Christianity is one of them, as overwhelming evidence suggests.  The unique problems of Christianity puts it in a unique position compared to religions like Islam (where it’s point is obvious), or Buddhism (which is more of a philosophy of life rather than a form of worship).  Even Judaism is clear about its claims and aims, and few Jews view the Creation as a literal set of events.  (Tell me if I am wrong Jewamongyou).  The problem is the claim to fact for events and conditions that challenge the credulity of a six year old, and further claims to historic veracity for events and occurrences while juxtaposed to  the traditions of Western critical thought and a literate society of observers who existed then and now.  The only way to overcome this has been in early times,  to forge documents and provide fraudulent proofs, while exerting a set of motivations based on mortal fear.  Such a power base has become more difficult to support in modern times where science and reason has developed better investigative methods and forensic opportunities are can no longer be prevented or punished by the church.  It makes my head spin to think of how quickly such purges would return to us if we suddenly found ourselves in a simpler society with believing Christians in charge again.  All these problems with religions exist because religions were always from the time of their creation, intended to control people, not liberate them.  While societal organization IS a necessary element of civilization, the nature of that controlling set of ideals can and I think will determine the experience and course of that people of civilization. 

        We now live in a time where the very Christian ideals that once allowed, when stretched, for the global expansion of the West and the success of the white nations and the West, has become our weakness.  It is not labels that concern me so much;  it is the contents of or the connotations carried with that label that matter, and some here who call themselves Christians may be said to be using the name a outward forms for a completely different practice.  However, I DO believe that the Bible is right about some things.  I DO think that foundations matter and the products of a faulty premise are sure to lead to failure.  Continuity and the faithfulness of purpose IS what is important.  This idea isn’t merely a Christian homily, it’s based on the science of architecture and philosophy.  Apologies and extremes of rationalizations will no longer serve us.  It’s crunch time, my friends.

    Very Nice.

  • I did not know that comments of Christianity were disallowed.  I read plenty of them here, the most well thought out ones came from the regular posters Whiteplight (he might be posting under a different name now) and Je Suis Paganisme (sp?).

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Whiteplight?  Really?  He is anti-Christian to be sure.  His religions are asatru and astronomy!

      Bon

      • Anonymous

        Defined in one sentence,  hmmm, thank you very much.  Ought I do the same for you?  But Bon, I’ve been posting here a long time and I like you, did you know that?  I wouldn’t be posting what I do here if I didn’t think it was important to being any sort of realist, but in particular a race realist.  You’ve got to know what a realist is first.  It’s definitions are found in the tradition of Western philosophy, not religion.

        I am not really Asatru, but I do find astronomy fascinating.  I do think it is closer to the spirit whites need today.  I am attracted to the philosopher’s reason and use of logic in the search for truth.  I don’t like dogma, I find it stifling and too easily used to contain the intellect.  I am merely a lifelong student of history, and the history of Christianity is fascinating to me.  I am amazed at how little practicing Christians really know about their own religion.   I view those who are so emotionally tied to it as whites as simply a representation of the general population left alive after a thousand years of Christian purging in Europe.  But some of us are brave enough to look beyond it and break with our trained in, emotional ties.   It’s scary at first, but then it’s liberating.  Later when one discovers the real richness of Western religious/spiritual history in our culture, it simply is not possible to remain in that little box.

        As for Asatru,  the Norse gods represent closer what race realists reflect in their comments on Amren.  The Christian God has been used infamously as a war god, but there is hardly a consistent case for it, and it is only done by denying a great deal of the NTs directives.  In a time when whites need some kick a$$ deities, I can see Odin and Thor more representative than a crucified savior or a distant afterlife with a never present or involved God.

        Culturally, I think that the views that held in Europe for thousands of years before Christianity serve us best in survival.  I mean the agrarian nature of them.  It makes more sense to me to mark and “worship” solar events as they relate to the land and crops.  The reverence of ancestors was part of those old religions.  I can clearly see the value of such a practice in influencing new generations to preserve their own kind (kindred).  Europeans were some of the earliest farmers in the world, it is an old and I think, genetically impressed habit that Christianity tends to take away from the individual, putting his head “in the clouds.”

        But I would not to be thought of as an enemy of Christians.   Some of my best friends have the problem.  They accept me with my views, although I don’t feel at liberty to remind them of mine views as often as they feel at liberty to speak theirs to me.  I see that as their insecurity in their beliefs.  But there is a deeper connection than these beliefs;  it is our identity as whites of European ancestry.   I don’t mind Christian symbols because it IS a part of European history.  I have several flags on display inside my home with crosses on them.  I understand how it happened.  It wouldn’t be that important except that the undeniable tenets of Christianity are being used against whites. 

        I hear and read here every type of excuse for this.  The most popular one on Amren claims that Marxism has taken over mainstream Christianity and somehow they know the real intent of scripture.  But they always misquote only very spares lines and infer a meaning that is contradictory to the overwhelming message of the NT.  They also are completely ignorant of the history of Christian communism, that goes back to the beginning and is documented.  Just Goggle it and you will know what I am talking about.

        I go on because I don’t see this insistence on Christianity as a hope for survival for whites.  It certainly isn’t exclusive to them.  What is exclusively ours and in common is what we should focus on, and that does include past religious forms.  They are ours exclusively and inform us now better than The Sermon on the Mount.

         

    • On this new format QD, you’re really going to have to show some self restraint now that you can respond to people in real time 24/7, with it always being daytime some where on the globe.This upgrade will also give my refresh button a break too, without now having to wait for those x3 daily moderation updates,which used to at least encourage some time for reflection.
      This new lack of moderation will certainly allow for the ‘wild west of open communication’ to become even wilder, which shall surely make for some entertaining fireworks. 
      It also instantly seems that Mr J.Taylor has shed at least one degree of separation with his real time comments made today, which as a admirer of his intellect and courage means that I have to make efforts to refrain from showing sycophantic appreciation.
      Another benefit of this site’s change is with the addition of a re-edit function, which for the undisciplined self editors and impetuous posters such as myself, who previously were forced to cringe after rereading their own comments when they eventually (and statically) appeared  online. 
      To then live in hope that no grammatical elocution lessons were to follow from either the multitude of teachers who seem to frequent this forum (as do police officers, health care and legal workers etc and others who work in the public coalface who are hence immune to progressive idealism),or to then prepare to defend oneself as a now easy target for an ad hominem ‘take down’ from a political adversary, who may want to highlight your diminished credibility while avoiding your logic, (which at least is a nice change from the ‘preaching to choir’ that could happen all too frequently on Amren Ver1.0), to this latter point I know you can’t relate, but it’s a bonus for the great unwashed, such as I.

        Yes exactly what I was thinking. The mods will have their work cut out for them! Hopefully all of the regular posters will try very hard to remain civil and respectful even while arguing with each other.

        The new format looks great and I love the fact we won’t have so many “anonymous” posts.

        • BJ

          I disagree with you. What is so wrong with “anonymous” posts?  Why does it bother you so much?  Anyone can just type in any “name” they want to use but they are still anon.  Is your “name” real? So tell me, what is the big difference to you? Can you not reply to any anon poster as you do to one with a “name”?

          I just do not like giving my email address to anyone that I do not personally know, (mods, etc.) let alone when posting comments on any public forum. Tell me why is that ever appropriate?  I began to hate that I ever started posting on Yahoo news stories ( I no longer post)when Yahoo had “profiles” that one had to complete and made it visible to all.

          • Anonymous

            When 60% of the posts have the nick “anonymous” it is annoying. Of course most of us are anonymous, but attaching a nick to the posts allows one to follow comments and identify specific posters as individuals.

            BTW virtually every comment forum on the web requires some sort of email verification, Amren is the exception.  If sharing your email is a concern don’t use your primary, just go to yahoo and in 2 minutes you have a secondary email account. It is not a security risk, and if the feds want to find out who you are an email address isn’t going to matter.

          • BJ

            The old Amren had the posts listed by NUMBER, so one can respond to the number of that poster if they were anon…makes no difference. The only problem I have is with having to use one’s email to even get on Amren to be able to post. The old Amren had it as optional. Now that is what I call a CHOICE. Now we do not even have such a choice. Why is it MANDATORY now when it wasn’t in the past?  When something  becomes mandatory, then watch out.

            I stopped using my usual handle a couple years ago  like many others when a situation arose that made it look like rabble rousers like Amren were being watched.  I don’t recognize your handle here, but really, there is nothing wrong with no handle, it is the content of the writing one is responding to, not an ego.  Or is it?

          • After reading your comments last night regarding privacy, I by chance caught a local TV show where they were interviewing some advertising executive/ marketing guru, and to be frank what he was saying was very disturbing.
            He said that these days 80%+ of the population walk around with a GPS tracking device in their pocket which makes everyone completely identifiable, and advertisers and marketers are already buying and selling our personal data on a huge scale already, with the goal of profiling us all and sending us personalized advertising offers localized to our current physical locations based on our online profiles to be initiated when we walk around minority report (movie) style. He also said that privacy is an antiquated concept and now everyone has to accept that we have absolutely zero privacy, for instances he said that 20% of 14 year olds have uploaded naked images of themselves online (often via mobile phones) and that data is now online permanently, so he predicts that we’re going to have a whole generation of people in a few years time who are going to be changing their names as to avoid embarrassing job interview type situations caused by the interviewers finding their youthful online personas which they are currently creating now.

            I always thought that it was the thought police who were going to get us, but it’s the capitalists who’re leading the way.
            On a lighter side can you image the future law suits when KFC or the makers of Air Jordans try this type of marketing to African Americans.
            Makes one want to live off the grid even more.

        To the Mod’s note….

        Is that why I have “edit” on most of my comments now?  Converse like educated adults?  What does that even mean? Sounds like you may not want any of us “uneducated” pro-White  realists?  Do we all need to be college educated (heaven forbid). Our own opinions may not live up to the standards set forth by Amren? I hope you mean by not using slurs and profanity, threats etc. That I can go for.

        • BJ

          I have never hit the edit button, yet is shows edit? Still don’t understand this stuff. Oh, well.  I am an older person and don’t know much about how to do things on the computer except look up things and go to Amren and post.

          With due respect, I beg to differ, with your analogy of , one won’t write it here if one wouldn’t speak it directly on one’s religious grandma. If not here, then where?

           We all say things here that we REALLY think and feel inside and hope that we are free to do so without a “religious grandma” looking down her nose at us. We have enough of those types in our families as it is…they are called liberal/brainwashed Whites who believe “racism” and being a pro-White survivalist, is the biggest sin of all, if you are White, that is. I have posted here for 8 years or more and I would never say out loud to my liberal relatives what I write here. I have tried to many times and all I got for it is resentment.

        Can you please explain the rules for comments beyond the old list of things you had to say “I agree” to.  Especially explain what will cause someone to get banned.  I know and do agree that being polite and on topic is needed, but what else is required?  Anything?  Thanks!

  • Bravo. I will comment publicly with pride.

  • Disqus, I think you’ll find, is probably the worst comment system imaginable. As evidence, I offer the comment section of any article posted at RawStory.

      Sadly kjhkngjnhkj f it appears you may be correct about the poor nature of Disqus!

      I created a yahoo acct. & uploaded my Avatar, then tried to sign in with Disqus to comment here…. would not even sign in!

      Went to my main gmail acct, uploaded my Avatar, signed in with Disqus… but it doesn’t show my Avatar!  *sniffle* 

      Anyhow it will be interesting to see how the new year goes with the new ‘real time’ commenting system now on Amren.

    The colour psychology is pleasing, and the design is good, modern; Although I have some problems with the decreasing widths of the body text, for those comments connected, in response to a particular post; On the other hand this makes it easier to follow a thread. If too much ‘visual zigzag’ is involved for the eye, in tracking the varying widths of cascading body text, this might be a little annoying to some readers. Raise the type by 1 point, and maybe widen the range a little. Personally, I thought the old format was sharp and well structured.

    Anyway, I really appreciate this website, and the incredible intellects that post here.
    Thank you, Jared Taylor

    Why do you, A_A, like the idea that Amren will no longer censor criticism of Christianity?  Christians seem to be fair game all over this country and the world.

     How about no longer censoring criticism of Judaism, Islam, or any other group of “people”? Let us be fair.

      Who cares about Altright or wherever one decides to get to the Amren site. All one had to do  is type in the word Amren on any search engine in the first place to get here. How hard is that?

      There are those who do not like Disqus in the first place or having to use their email to log in the first place and this new Amren may look nice but it is  not what many of us care for as for commenting. The old website was better and so much easier to read all the comments.

    I DO want to be supportive of Amren.  However, that sometimes means to criticize.  I agree with those who understand this new form to be a far easier way for IDs to be known.  I may be paranoid, but I see plenty of signs of certain types of harassment and NOW with threats of  larger censorship and even prosecution from the right.

     We live in potentially dangerous times.  Obama just passed a law that negates the 4th Amendment.  Online restrictions and prosecution of whites as terrorists for speaking their minds could easily be next.  This is why it is important to retain as many layers of anonymity possible.  However, those who make the argument that it is time to come out from hiding MIGHT be right.  If we don’t hang together, we most likely will hang separately.  (Hmmm, a certain FF said something like that, didn’t he)?  Certainly, the feeling of confrontation is growing.

    Aside from that, I must say that this program is not as efficient as the former program.  Much more scrolling down is required, as well as turning pages while the margins are huge and represent wasted space.  In the case of Amren, I would say that efficiency is more important than a cute, or hip looking presentation.

    I DO congratulate Jerrod Taylor and Amren for improving their philosophical consistency were Jeffersonian ideals are concerned.  Certainly, self-criticism is just as important as other criticism, and my aim has always been for moving toward a more likely model for white survival and advancement.

      I strongly disagree. Welcome to the 90’s. If the government wants to find out who you are they won’t require an email address. This new format is great and there is NO security risk. Okay if you use facebook and have your black coworkers listed as friends, and able to view all of your posts well….posting to Amren from that account might cause a problem, but I seriously doubt anyone that posts here regularly would do something so silly.

      Relax people. This is a great new format and it will increase Amren traffic. It is all safe and there are no worries. Let us be grateful for the effort that has been put forth. Yes it means change, but it is GOOD change! It is a GOOD THING at least for us posters, the mods may feel differently for a while.

        Email when linked to the comments that lead to other info easily gathered by web crawler programs, will make the job of finding out who said what easier.   Prosecution of dissident speech may become a more problematic issue soon because the DHS is looking closer at “domestic terrorism,” constantly reminding the public of whites who have committed such acts in the past while dismissing real threats.

    Unrelated, but as of this moment, every story now shows up to 250 comments in one page. That is the maximum amount that Disqus currently allows. Most AR stories won’t have that many comments, so in almost all stories, all comments will show up in one page. Until a few minutes ago, pages were limited to 20 comments per “page.” — Moderator

  • M.

    It’s your website and you can do anything you want with it. However, counting all the fawning comments regarding this makeover, I have to say, I’m in the minority.
     
    I don’t like it for four reasons.
     
    The old site was direct and easier to access and maneuver.  
     
    The old site, with it’s strong, deep colors, was bold and masculine. This new color scheme, with it’s cream, ecru, antique palate, looks downright too feminine for my tastes. I enjoyed logging into the old site with it’s deep, rich blue. The yellowish tones, at least to me, make it look old and dated.   
     
    The text is smaller and again, I’m not found of the brownish hue.
     
    Lastly, it looks like and now has the format, of any number of standard blogs.
     
    I’ll keep reading and posting but I will maintain my fond longing for the old site.
     
    Best of luck with the new style and format.

    May i suggest you get Pat Buchanan’s book ‘Suicide of a Superpower’ and read chapter 2..The Death of Christian America..Its Christianity that had given us our western culture.Like history has been dying in our institutions of higher learning so too is Christianity.Both have been invaded and are now controlled by marxist ideologues.Christianity asserts ethnic and racial exclusiveness?If one were to merely read the Bible for themselves an argument could be made for quite the opposite.Certainly by todays politically correct standards Christ himself would be called a racist-Mark 8-verses25-30…a woman came to him whose little girl was sick and pled with him to cure her,but she was a Syrophoenician–a despised gentile.Jesus told her,”First I should help my own family–the Jews.It isnt right to take the childrens food and throw it to the dogs.”She replied,”thats true sir,but even the puppies under the table are given some scraps from the childrens plates.”….you state continuity and the faithfulness of purpose is whats important.Do tell me how science of architecture and philosophy support that which promotes the idea life is an accident no matter how complicated it may be. Unadulterated religion & history is necessary for a civilized society and its resulting western values.Pat Buchanan..”When the faith dies,the culture dies,the civilization dies,and the peoples die.” Isnt this what is happening now?

    • Anonymous

      I am quite familiar with Pat Buchanan’s writings and his views including his claims regarding the Christian ownership of Western culture.   It might have come to own it, but it is not the cause, except as a negative.  That Buchanan claims that Christianity gave us our Western culture is clear, but that doesn’t make it a fact, or even a supportable fact.   The way Christianity came into being was to usurp existing religions and form one from what existed.  Catholic in fact means “universal” and most Catholic theologians readily admit to the history of the Roman Church.  But regardless of sect, the mode of operation of Christianity has always been to absorb the local culture into it.  When Christianity was created, it not only did this, but laid itself as a veneer over practices and cultures that had sustained themselves in relative peace for thousands of years.  This is how holidays from Christmas to Easter came to be named Christian: by simply taking them over.  You may know that December 25 was originally the Persian sun god Mithra’s birthday, and that he was born of a virgin, but you may  not know that Eoster was a Greek goddess of the spring, and she is represented by Mary in the famous early painting of her holding a egg, which was Eoster’s symbol of new birth of spring, usurped as a new claim that the egg represented the rebirth of the son of man. The Scandinavian and Roman deities thankfully retain the days of the days of the week, so we aren’t completely devoid of earlier cultural forms.   And this is not the end, it is just a very light superficial set of examples. 

      Christianity came from the Middle East, so if it is as you claim, then the culture that dominates the West isn’t a European one.  However, the more educated and honest among us know that Christianity is really polytheistic European paganism blended with patriarchal Judaism.  However, the claim that Christianity owns European culture or is responsible for it can be thoroughly rebutted.  However, few believers can bring themselves to listen, so fragile is their “faith,” it simply cannot survive the challenge.  It can be rebutted with a huge swathe of historical fact that he and the believer typically ignore.  The case of Christianity as responsible for hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions) of terrible deaths in Europe even exclusive of all the religious wars, on the civil population of white Europe is well documented but always ignored by apologists like Buchanan.  The case may be made and often has been that Western advances came in spite of Christianity.  In the beginning the Church even forbade its flock to learn to read, then fought the distribution of the Bible and the printing press.  If either Pat Buchanan or you were faced with the facts of this history, I don’t think a “faith” that could deserve support would emerge.  I might call you both to account for the Albigensian Crusade, or the over 500 years of The Inquisition, or the often violent means of conversion.

      The Western traditions include the realm of philosophical inquiry.  It began before the advent of Christianity and continued in Europe despite Christian oppression, even chastisement.  All of the West’s advancements are owed to this, rather than Christianity.   It was the rebirth of their practice (at least publicly) that led to The Renaissance and later intellectual movements that brought the idea of America into being.  Apparently,  I have more “faith” in white people than Christianity or you apparently do;  I don’t think that the threat of “Hell” or other punishments is required for us to chose a moral or ethical life.  Much of the data of philosophy is dedicated to the study of ethics and morals, just not exclusively or nominally Christian ones.  It is the loss of these ethnics, especially that has allowed things to progress to the sorry state they are today.  If faith is all that is needed, why then wouldn’t faith in “Allah” be as good as any?  But any “faith” that requires the believer to be a sheep and as a child, is not something that any thinking person can seriously give consent to, so most followers must do so dishonestly.  It certainly is no credit to Europeans or any people that they brainwash their young into a belief system to control them for their lives.  This is how the medieval world worked, and those who suppose they have  vested interest in such a state of affairs will be interested in the continued assertion of the sort of groveling required by Christianity.  It is certainly a thoroughly un-American attitude.

      I didn’t say anything about “faithfulness” in regards to purpose, but even if I did, it doesn’t detract, but supports what I was saying.  If we stay on purpose, that is the point.  Why can’t that “faith” be in ourselves or our ancestors?  Why does it have to be in a crucified Jew who may or may not have ever lived?  I say that because there is NO factual evidence that he ever existed, and we KNOW that Jesus Christ never did, that is a Greek name that Paul created, it’s not a Jew’s name at all.  The case for questioning even the existence of such a one as described in the NT is substantial, but that is another issue.

      Regarding your quotes:  Yours is not exactly a call to racial or ethnic exclusiveness, but to the exclusiveness of Jews, which the entire Bible supports, not races or even tribes, and his mission was initially to the Jews.  That’s a pretty weak premise for Christianity as an exclusively white European domain.   And this was before Jesus “gave up” on the Jews (rather Paul).  You are making an interpretation.    I can cite you others, and more that call on Christianity to include the entire world;  Luke 24:47  “And the repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name TO ALL NATIONS.”  Then we have; Acts1:8  “… and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 

      Someone made the point on Amren recently that the traditional use of “nations” was as racial, ethnic, and tribal.  That is ONE case of use of several possible.  So there you are; Christians are ordered to convert all people of the world, and as Christians there are no higher or lower in Christ.  In fact, if you are higher, you will be denied entrance, or acceptance in The Kingdom.  Sounds fairly egalitarian to me.

      Every Christian Church I have every known of, even Pentecostal and
      Baptist, make a big issue of going to third world countries and
      converting non-whites, getting them naturalized, and into the US.  They
      teach them their favorite politics.

      As far Christian “Marxism”  I suggest you do some quick researching regarding the history of Christian Communism.  It existed before Marx and in fact existed in the form of the early Church.  Gibbon for example, cites extant records regarding the goods of wealthy converts collected and redistributed to all converts.  This is the world’s first example of collectivism and a socialist system outside of a religious sect like the Essenes.  It is also one of the reasons for its quick growth.  That the early Church was ordered to be a collective is supported by the Gospels as well as appearing again in Acts.  The “miracle” of the  Loaves and Fishes certainly represent the collective principle.  Jesus chides his disciples when they seem reluctant to share.  Paul called for the Churches the collection of all goods used in common.  This was in fact practiced as it was reported historically.  Jesus certainly supports the socialist model in his Sermon on the Mount.  The example of the rich man unable to “enter the Kingdom of God” due to his greed cannot be seen as the support for either a wealthy church or support for the principle of capitalism.  His disdain for profit is shown in his condemnation of usury, money changers changed money for a profit, and there is no room for that in “God’s House.”  Historically, the Temple grounds was also the civic center of Jerusalem.  Not only were there banks in the Temple, but there were merchants of all sorts and the treasury of Judea was held there as well.  So the interpretation of his words is that “mammon” something he refers to always with disdain, is not anything to strive for in this life. 

      As for the sciences, your ignorance of them doesn’t infer the existence of a God anymore than it supports the existence of a noodle (the Flying Spaghetti God)  as the Grand Deity.  Such simple beliefs ignore a huge body of knowledge.  It is useless to inquire of a true believer when they base all their intellectual prowess on faith in a claim that it just appeared by the will of a omnipotent God that co-incidentally, looks a great deal like  you.  If God DID create man, why did he give him such a mind for merely the purpose of denying its faculties?  And tell me, does your God, Jesus or whoever have sex organs, or is he a Ken like figure with no idea of sex?  As we have seen that Heaven is not just up in the clouds there, and our earth not the center of the universe, is it just that God is waiting somewhere in the mathematical equations of String Theory?   Would he still look strangely like the Greek God Zeus?

      My observation is that many nominal Christians like you are straining themselves in the attempt to rectify a Christian identity with the need to segregate ourselves from non-white society in order to survive.  Aside from the obvious and imbecilic simplicity that real thought has to reveal, Christianity is the major stumbling block to the intellect.  I merely consider the waste of mind in occupying it with such contradictory assertions as religions claim.  One must practice practical schizophrenia to be both a scientist and a believer, and one is usually one of them but never equally both.  The claims of superior white IQ and achievement is largely culled from those minds being educated in those “communist” universities and schools,” not your local evangelical church or even your local Catholic counsel member.  But education has got a way of bringing the many incredible claims of Christianity into question.  The challenges to Christianity began long before Marx wrote his works.  Thank goodness it did, otherwise we would have had no advent of The Renaissance, The Age of Reason, or The Enlightenment.  Yet, as so many famous cases illustrate, and not the least, the Boer example in South Africa, Christianity sets up contradictions that always let the destructive elements in.  According to your belief, we oughtn’t worry about what happens here on earth at all.  So what are you worried about?  I am sure you imagine a heaven exclusive for whites.

        You actually used a feather to plow through a forrest and all for not.I refuse to do so.Its clear by your ramblings that it would be an exercise in futility.It is clear..Christianity is reponsible for Western Culture..It is superior to any other religion in my opinion..your insistence that religion is not necessary for a civilized nation speaks volumes about the rest of your argument.Even Friedrich Nietzsche,Eugene Windchy and Hitler would disagree with that assessment.Traditional America is dying and your response is too blame it on Christianity?It is also clear from your ramblings that you resent religion for the moral constraints it imposes as “destructive and irresponsible,”a corruption of the idea that our founding Fathers had believed in and fought for.I have no idea what God may look like but i do have an idea from your writings what you may look like,more likely like a 60’s tuned in self ordained ‘philosopher.’ Communism derives from the devil himself who was there in the first days of Creation under the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil:”Ye shall be as gods.”It is the great alternative faith of mankind.Like all great Faiths,its forces derive from a simple vision…The Communist vision is the vision of man without God.It is also blasphemy to suggest that   Christ harbored ill will towards the Rich because he threw the money changers out of the temple..you sure are capable of twisting things out of sorts to satisfy your own self-absorbed delusions.The cause you so arduently support is just as hollow as neoconservatism,with its belief in struggle,the utopian notion of a moral society at the “end of history” and a romantic belief in the power of ideas and morality to change the world.Perhaps Environmentalism is a big part of your self made religion as well.To anyone who reads this post i inplore you to get Pat Buchanan’s book Suicide of a Superpower.A really good read..oh,yea..Albert Einstein,great intellect -scientist commented that Life was too complicated as to be the result of an accident.Indeed,what kind of idiot would think otherwise.Can a tornado whipping through a junkyard create a spaceship by accident?

          A feather to plow a forest you say?  Imagine how devastating it would be if I had the venue and time to layout a full rebuttal to you, Pat Buchanan and any other!  A feather?  Yes, with just those few examples, I was able to plow through a forest of self-deception and historical falsehoods.  It is you and people like you who simply cannot face them. 

          Any Catholic theologian will tell you that the Church usurped from other extant religions including Greek and European paganism to make it up.  Again  Catholic = Universal.  Christianity attempts to claim what it can’t outright destroy or own.  That’s been its historical mechanism and it goes on still today.  One good example is Rock and Roll music.  First denounced as demonic and satanic, it later became an accepted form for Christian music.  Another good example is JRR Tolkien’s books.  At first denounced as satanic, when they became hugely popular, after 20 years or so, Christians decided that they were somehow about Christianity, even though no mention of any religion is made, nor are any of the characters shown as faithful to anything but their own people and ancestors – which is actually a great inspiration for whites.  Even though he was a devout Catholic, he wrote using pre-Christian, Norse  influences and cultural forms to write of the struggle between good and evil.

          The historical facts are with me, even though you can’t accept that.  I will not waste anymore time, but I hadn’t written what I did in this new format just for you.  Certainly, you and everyone is entitled to their chosen delusion, but history and fact, AND psychoanalysis would not support it.

          You and Pat Buchanan are only what you are as the result of a thousand years of Christian persecution in Europe and the fact that you were indoctrinated, brainwashed as a child.  You and many simply lack the courage to move beyond it to actual self realization, which is where true spirituality begins.

          Christianity is unhealthy because it fear is the motivation for belief.  So the reason for all your childlike declarations of faith are based on self interest of the most basic sort.  It proves itself devastating to whites every time, including now.  Instead of wasting time defending the indefensible, you ought to be recognizing the obvious.

          As for spiritual experiences, I’d love to hear how such experiences follow a race-realist or pro-white philosophy.  You can never reconcile them.  Stats show that positive and negative results of prayer are comparable to the random occurrence of events.

          Again, Christian communism has existed since its inception and you can easily find proof of that.  Denying that is to refute your own religion’s history.   St. Francis of Assisi is the greatest medieval example, but such communities existed in England later on, and even the Plymouth Rock Colony practiced collectivism and the investors shared profits by pooling them and dividing them equally, the first example of its kind.   Love is also a big theme in the NT; the universality of God’s Love.  I’d really like to hear how you figure this ends for non-whites.  The language in the NT is plain enough, and all early converts donated
          their wealth to the Church for redistribution, that is a historical
          fact.  They believed it, even if you don’t.  So that makes all those
          early Christians blasphemers!   Your mythical explanation for communism is reflective of a child’s mentality and has no credibility beyond storytelling and outlandish claim.

          See, I don’t care if you or anyone chooses to believe in whatever you want.  The health of your mind is your responsibility.  But I challenge you and anyone to demonstrate how Christianity serves the Race Realist cause.

          Science is a method for investigation based on the measurable, demonstrable, not on faith espoused by a “faith.”   In fact, no other one exists.  it proceeds by faults and its strength is that it admits them.  Individuals, even Einstein have experienced crisis because of trained in beliefs.  So I guess if I remind you that Mother Teresa wrote of her continuing crisis of faith, that will make points too?  Any thinking person who lives in the world has to have a crisis of faith because all human experience and common sense demands it. Regardless of his brilliance he was a human being from a strong cultural influence, a man of his time regardless of his work.  As that work goes on, the concept of God is further challenged.  It has also been a successful device for advancing science by allowing a place for God in it, whenever possible.  Even Darwin wrote that through his work, he was seeking to understand God’s work.  And anyone can see it that way if they wish, or need to.  I don’t.

          I am not concerned about your concepts such as blasphemy, nor do I have any more time to waste on ideologues like Pat Buchanan.  He is a schill for the Catholic Church, which also supports and protects pedophiles, or is that okay and a demonstration of Christian morals to you?  I visited monasteries and nunneries in Europe and know the history of sexual deviance in the history of the Church – and it is extensive.  Buchanan is only preaching to a very small choir at this point, a fraction
          within a fraction of whites who wish to save the white race, and he hopes to gain for his Church by exploiting the issue.  But don’t expect me to quiver with fear at your accusation of blasphemy.  To me it carries no value of any kind.  I am no more concerned with blaspheming Jesus or your religion than I am of Islam, Judaism, or any other that demands belief from me.

          Your faith calls on you to be a sheep, and child like because that is what it takes to believe its claims and tenets.  Being a sheep is very dangerous for whites, or anyone, but especially for whites today.

          I call on you and other whites to consider well what they are trying to do for the white race via Christianity, and how likely it is to be successful.

          Since the moderator edited this latest reply to me, I can assume that he approved of its content and even perhaps created it.  So I will say this to Amren;  I can support whites who are Christians by choice but not Christianity as the only acceptable form for whites.  You must be courageous enough to indulge in self-examination.  You will never gain your aims if you cannot evolve to accommodate new thoughts or imagine a better direction than the one you think you can create or re-create.  You guarantee that few or no whites of education and experience  will be attracted to your cause because your self-definition is too narrow.  You create a wide avenue for your opposition through frank hypocrisy.  Because of that you guarantee the failure of the white race.

The White Christians have been so brainwashed by the pulpit of today to “love everybody” turn the other cheek” and the “God so loved the world” nonsense that most White Christians will just lay down and roll over to please their worldly masters. They “love” the world and what tickles their ears.

    I’m a little surprised at the bellyaching. The old AmRen was out of date. The current setup is great and equal to other great sites like Takimag and AltRight (and a better format than the revamped VDare, IMHO). If you don’t like it, just wait a few more years when Internet media standards will have further evolved. I, however, will raise my glass in a New Year’s toast to a new AmRen.

    My only concern is making sure that my identity stays private. Even though I do my best to submit logical, rational comments without any hatred,  I  realize that what I am saying is not politically correct and certain elements in society enjoy ruining the lives and reputations of people whom they don’t agree with.

      With the social media acounts people just need to be mindful of the nick they use and what other info they have posted using the same nick/accounts.

      For instance I also use this Disqus account to post on my local news site, Amren posters can see all those posts, and vice versa.  That just revealed the city that I live near, and some posts reveal the town that I live in. 

      When using existing social media accounts that are linked to various forums one has to be mindful of what info is linked to our user accounts and what someone could find by just googling that nick. If in doubt go sign up for a new account with a unique nick and only use it here.

    On first assessment, I think that the new look and functionality is great. Well done to Jared and the team for taking the plunge.

    It is definitely slicker and softer on the eye, bringing it a lot more up to date with the themes of other sites and no doubt making it ready for future technology to be adapted, just like this Disqus commentary has been added, etc.

    It will probably take some getting used to for some people, but like any such overhauls, in a few weeks time I bet we will all be used to it, and a few months down the line we will be forgetting how the old site looked and how it was navigated!

  • The theme and the style of the new Amren website look appealing to me. I also like the fact that comments posted by those who have an account with a social network will appear immediately. I have seen many discussions between posters in the past, and it was annoying to have to wait hours for the own response to show up. So the new system including the “Reply” tab is a real improvement.

    However, I have an improvement suggestion in this regard: Each reply is nested below the original comment with a reduced text line width. I just figured that if there are many subsequent replies, the text line width becomes so narrow that it becomes hard to read, and an equal amount of text consumes too much height. I would reduce the width on one reply, but not on following replies (which are marked as “In reply to XY” anyway).

    Last but not least: Any chance of having a forum on Amren, where readers can discuss either older articles that are still of high importance, or just issues that are of concern to us?  I would appreciate a forum.

    I did this through a Disqus account I set up. I am slightly concerned that what I say on here may show up on Facebook even though I never specified that I want to use Facebook for this.  This may be a silly concern but considering how connected the internet is, I guess it is a little justified.  Anybody have some input?

    As a web designer and developer, I’d say the typography could use a lot of work, as well as the overall design. Far too much negative space, generic social plugin features, and a general “basic free WordPress theme” feel to the entire site.

    However, it’s nice to see an American Renaissance facelift. The comments migration worked quite well, and Safari on my iPad is allowing me to view each and every post in Reader. Cheers.

      I previously posted a comment on this threat as M. I have since registered with Disqus and I now have my old screen name back, sbuffalonative

      As I said before, I liked the rich, dark, bold blue of the old site. It had gravitas. I find the new color scheme to ‘soft’ and feminine. (I’ve never been a fan of beige, antique, ecru, or whatever the border color is called as it evokes a quality of ‘oldness’ – which is why it is often referred to as antique by designers and at the hardware store where I buy paint).

      The majority of comments seem to love the new look so I once again find myself in the minority (nothing new there).

      I agree with you regarding the typography. I find the text to be unnecessarily small (and yes, I do know how to enlarge the page in any number of ways.) I also agree with you about the negative space. If you look to the right, 1/3 of the page is blank space. Clearly there is plenty of room to increase the font size and the fix is only a couple keystrokes.

      If it’s possible, I would like to see and greatly appreciate larger text. After all, this forum is only text on a computer screen. It’s not the same as ink on a printed page where small print would save ink, paper, and money.

      Best regards,

It’s the same old ridiculous claims whether it be witches, druids, animists, New-Agers, or Vikinist.

        Whiteplights criticisms of Christianity and religion in general are usually well thought out..i dissagree,no offense intended.As i have stated before,your best response to deleting commenters post whether they be off topic or judged “lucid”,”thoughtful” or given to proselytizing is to be consistent, to not show your bias.Clearly,in my opinion shown by your actions thus far you are not impartial regarding how you censor or not censor certain commentors.

I guess I will have to start composing my posts in Word to avoid being shamed by the spelling and grammar police!

      This moderator does not and will not correct every spelling and grammar error, only the more blatant ones. None of the mods have the time to correct every such error. For instance, split infinitives, ending a sentence in a preposition, and confounding the plural and the possessive irk me to no end, but so many people do it that it might as well be proper grammar and usage. One helpful hint going forward: “A Lot” and “Never Mind” are not compound words. I often see “alot” and “nevermind,” and in the case of the latter, it sends the post into the spam filter. The system thinks “nevermind” is “neVERMINd.” — Moderator

  • I like the new look. I just hope you put on the home page a pic and link to Color of Crime and the report re. Hispanics. Also, under your archived videos, if you could add a link or YouTube of Jared’s C-SPAN presentation, that would be great.

    Frankly, I was hoping for an online forum to be added for a more efficient and effective discussion of issues rather than carrying on a discussion via article comments. Perhaps in the future….

  • I like the new look.

    If you can, adding the video of — or even just a link to — Jared’s C-SPAN presentation would be great for the Video section of the Archives. 

    I hope you consider adding an online forum since discussing an issue via article comments is quite cumbersome and there might not be an article relevant to the topic you want to discuss when you want to discuss it. As article commentators earn a good reputation and gain the trust of AmRen, they could volunteer to moderate such a forum. That would be a prudent preliminary step since appropriate moderation is crucial to the success of any online forum, esp one dealing w/controversial topics.

    I like to come to AMREN for sanity and to feel some sense of community. Sometimes I feel like I’m an army of one out there. I like the new look of the website, but I miss the anonymity of the comment section. Nonetheless, the changes are mostly good.

    I would like to hear opinions on a certain topic. Whenever I am on the various news sources that allow a comments section, there are always racist blacks and Hispanics (and sometimes other) that verbally attack whites. They verbally bash whites and often cheer on violent crimes against whites. I try to refrain from engaging with such people, but sometimes my temper gets the better of me. I do try to stick with Amren style guidelines, but my rage often shows. I would like to hear any suggestions on dealing with such people.

    This is really just more of a comment test. I’ve been posting here on and off since about 2005 or 2006, but have mostly moved on to other sites. The new look is nice, but it looks like commenting may be a hassle. We shall see.

    The site software didn’t like my browser and told me to upgrade, so I just switched from IE7 to Firefox, which the site software seems to find acceptable.

    First off, kudos to AmRen on the look and layout of the new site.  I like it.  I’m not one of these folks who believe that everything should be constanly updated with the new “in thing” or the shiny new look.  But the changes are for the most part an improvement.  I also aplaud you for the chage to the comments forum to utilize the “Disqus” system.  It’s not the best comments software out there, but it works.  This will allow more back and forth more or less real time exchanges of ideas and debates.  That can only be a good thing.

    But the change to Disqus does bring with it a new concern that I urge the site staff to keep a tight reign on from day one: trolling.  It will alot easier for the leftist trolls and anti-Whites to post here now and cause trouble.  Therefore I urge the site staff/moderaters to be on their toes and enthusiastly police the site.  I’ve seen a number of sites adopt a lax “hands off policy” when dealing with trolls.  The result was that threads became constantly  derailed by troll comments, legitimate discussion suffered, and as a result eventually traffic to the site dropped off.  I don’t want to see that happen to AmRen.   Please keep in mind that the pressence of that “flag” button is not a substitute for hands on agressive moderating.  (and the threshold at which a flagged post will be removed should be kept pretty low so that offensive material drops quickly and does not become a danger to the discussion) 

     On a related note, here is a bit of advice to the AmRen readership: there is a little “flag” icon”  at the bottom of every post.  Use it.  It’s there to get trolls and other offensive material removed.  Please don’t reply to the idiots and trolls.  Just flag them and move on.  You will never be able to keep the more determined trolls out, but a willingness to flag known trolls on site will have the result that such people will often find their posts have a very short shelf life before they are lost to cyber-space!

    Finally, a note to “BJ” and others concerned about their privacy.  Personally, I think your concerns are a bit overblown. (the government has better things to do than track every single race realist out there.  Do you think they have individualized dossiers on everyone who posts on Stormfront for example?  Neither do I.)   Noone is totally anonymous on the ‘net.  But if you are THAT concerned about this, there are a couple of small things you can do to limit the risk.  Don’t register using an email connected to your home acccount.  Instead make a temporary “trollmail” account and register for Disqus using that.  Hushmail is a pretty good “troll and toss” service that I recomend.  Likewise, if you are worried about being tracked, post using a proxy program.  This will alter your IP address and make you a little harder to track.  I recomend “Security KISS” (www.securitykiss.com) as a good easy to use free IP masking program.   This is not foolproof, but it will provide a similar level of anonymity as the old AmRen commenting system.  Please don’t be discouraged by your fears and be scared away by the change over.

    That’s enough for now.  Kudos once again to Amren on the changes.  Yes, there are bugs right now, and I urge the AmRen community to be patient.  Another site I post to changed to Disqus about a year ago and there were some “teething issues”.  But they got sorted in a few weeks.  The same will no doubt happen here.

    I’m from Russia. I use the site to educate my former fellow-countrymen. I use the site because so far it is a best known to me site where intelligent and smart people meet. The utmost reason is, of course, Jared himself, his eloquence, logic, justification . So from this point of view I want moderators to analyze my comment and give me a guidance-explanations.

    3rd. It is good to have editing to fix grammar and wording
    2nd. It is useful to have reply to a comment under the comment

    1st. I want to acquaint  the AmRen readers with position of the Russian public to the AmRen issues and concerns. Russian scientists do not recognize all races come from the same root and Africans are not belonging to the species homo sapiens. A way too long I’ve lived under supervision of the great communist brother to understand how careful must be Jared to keep the site running, however… In case I attempt to present in a literary language the real knowledge and attitude of the Russian public and scientists on the issues of race realism – these materials not one time appeared on the site.  Nobody bothered to reply to my requests. I almost have stopped to read the site, comment here, and unfortunately use its material conversing with my Russian counterparts.

    It is sad, horribly sad to hit such politically correct censorship on the website.

    I even sent a private message to Jared recommending him some mighty powerful methods successfully have  worked out in Europe to unite AmRen members, start silent resistance and some more. No answer. Is that a fear? Or lack of political extrapolation?

  • Thank you, Jared and the Amren team, for this site – it’s one of my favourites.

    About a decade ago, during the .com era, I, a Boer / Afrikaner from South Africa, a descendant of the Dutch, Germans and French who settled the Cape Colony in Africa in the 17th century, spent a year or so working in the USA, as an IT person in New Jersey, and was touched by the generosity of spirit that is small-town and suburban America. I can think of no better example of this generosity than the American co-worker who came up to my South African colleague and I and gave us baseball tickets to go and watch a Baltimore Orioles game – for no other reason than he saw that we were strangers and wanted to make us feel at home.

    Having travelled to most Western countries, my sincere opinion is that the conservative. race-realist, white American is the last, best hope for Western civilization. The future is in your hands, guys – make the right choices.

    The new site is a disappointment.  Yes, certain things are better technically. But the whole pale white, yellow motif is really wimpy.

    More important it does not use the latest technology. For, example, there are no videos here. No tapes of people talking to the camera. No use of photographs to illustrate the articles.

    This is basically print journalism transferred to the web. 

    Also, it was a mistake to discontinue the paper monthly newsletter, which was never adequately promoted in my humble opinion.  Even if it remained only as distributed via email as a pdf, it was a valuable resource and contained articles that were of length and substance and found nowhere else.

    Well I for one like it! It seems easier to read and the comments are familiar. Thanks guys! Nice work!

    Whenever I try to highlight a passage (left click and sweep) in order to quote it the whole paragraph is grabbed and moves around instead.   (Doesn’t happen in the comments section, though.)   I’ve never seen that on any other site,  It’s most annoying.

    The font and color used for the headlines make them harder  for my old eyes to read.

    What, Amren is going to be unmoderated? Whoopee!!

    Let’s test that out:

    White GeNOcide!
    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White!

    Okay. But what about that topic on which, if we can’t say something nice, we’re supposed to not say anything at all?

    There’s a catch here somewhere.

    Oh my god, you’ve introduced flagging. That little flag becomes a training device for holding free expression in contempt. People are sheep and believe that if something is offered them they must use it. 

    The proof? I’ve never known of a single site with flags where the flags weren’t used.

    So there.

    BIG mistake to have flagging. But Amren has always been a control-freakish sort of place.

    I deliver a single message: A program of White Genocide is being carried out by anti-Whites who insist that every white country be flooded with non whites with whom Whites must assimilate and intermarry. 

    I was having a merry time here a few weeks ago showing that every injury to Whites catalogued in these news articles is part of White Genocide.

    But the style involves a lot of repetition of key phrases, like “anti-White” and “White Genocide,” and I like to put at the bottom of each of my posts,

    “White GeNOcide!”
    “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White!”

    And some readers take it as a personal insult (as the mods here apparently did, since my posts abruptly stopped going up one day) that I think they need to see something more than once, and will hit that flag button rather than allow me to do my posts my way.

    But I may give it a whirl, because I was having so much fun for awhile.

    Just since last night I’ve had my second post (right after the one below) removed, a mild post in which I expressed my opposition to flagging.

    I stated that what I wished to do here, and had been allowed to do for a brief period, is point out how the various injuries to Whites described in the articles are part of the White Genocide that is being carried out by anti-Whites (who claim they are just “anti-racists”), who insist that every white country be flooded with non whites with whom Whites must assimilate and intermarry.

    But I’ve grown to despise this censorious and arbitrary site! 

    So best wishes to all of you with your new same-old same-old! Now that you have the new flagging tool, you can carry on your silly incestuous feuds with each other at a new level of intensity!

    Below is my post that was removed. 

    Would you who flagged it please instead express in your own post what your objections to mine are? 

    How quickly the introduction of little flags on a site converts discussants to censors.

    I like the new look and appreciate the discussion facilities. Please excuse the sample post to test the identity options. I now click on Post As… to get a choice of logins.

    Well, that will teach me not to use Yahoo!. It used the currently logged in ID with no option to switch to an impersonal account for diverting forum traffic.

      I changed my Disqus account name and login to another. The new name is now displaying with the posts, as I would have preferred.

    I am finding that a darker shade for the titles would provide more contrast and ease of scanning. This might be part of a style sheet but should be able to be tweaked.

    Updating the website was an outstanding idea.
    It will surely absorb greater public attention.

    Dear Mister Taylor : 

    The “American Renaissance” in big letters in the banner is in too-low resolution. 
    Please increase the resolution. It looks temporary.

    I used to post comments on yahoo news stories and then I found out that they sent my comments to ALL who were on my contact list in my email!  I quit posting there.  I have also heard that it is very easy for one in the know to get ones email address, their real name and address just by clicking on one’s “name”  on forums where they comment if they had to provide an email address to even be able to log in and comment in the first place. Is this true?  Maybe a moderator here would know for sure?

      Thank you for the info.

    One of the mods said most browsers have spell check when posting comments. I am using IE 8 and when I right click there is no auto spell check.

    Please explain.

    Internet Explorer doesn’t have built in spell check, not even its most recent stable version. Microsoft makes both Word and IE, yet can’t bundle spell checking with IE? IE Version 10 will have it, but until then, use this: http://www.iespell.com — Moderator

      Downloaded and it is working! Thank you! Much better than Googling the proper spelling; now the Amren spelling/grammar police can focus on sentence structure. I wish them the best of luck.

    Suddenly the “reply” buttons are disappearing on a lot of posts. Not all, just some.  If there was a change or upgrade this morning well….there is a problem.

      Ahh. Okay. You can expect this question to be raised frequently by others. I have seen other Disqus sites where the column width goes down to 5 characters and yes it is a problem, though 6 levels are still quite readable.

    Why are there so many trolls on here now that we have this new website?  I am currently involved in a heated debate under the article that was put up about 4 or 5 days ago about something barbaric that happened in India, and there seems to be a few antagonists on there all at once (two of them Jews) who are trying to lecture the rest of us about how Indians are smarter than whites.  I for one am getting sick of this.  Anybody want to come defend me please?  Where are all the tough men at on here?

      I am  a woman but I agree with you. This site will have more and more trolls since the new Amren website will guarantee it.  I don’t know if it is my computer or what but it seems to take longer now for the comments etc. to come up. Is it Disque (or whatever their name is?). We had a few trolls before but now I believe there are alot more. As I have stated before I do not like the new Amren and having to  “sign up” to even post a comment. It takes alot longer to find your own comment now where before we had the NUMBER of our comment and it was so much easier to find instead of having to scroll all the way down to find it. It is becoming a hassle  now and I am sure there are those ( as we can see by their comments)who just love this new makeover. I am one who does not.
