Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
On June 11, Counter-Currents will celebrate our second anniversary of going online. We are also launching a major fundraising drive this month.
May was another lively month for Counter-Currents. Thank you for making that possible.

Our number one essay, Daniel Michaels on Stalin’s plan to conquer Europe, has been a perennial favorite since we first published it in April of 2011. Two other perennial favorites, Irmin Vinson on Hitler and Gregory Hood on Scarface, were in our top 10 yet again.
Gregory Hood and Jef Costello each had three top 20 pieces, Jack Donovan and Greg Johnson each had two.
Alex Stark’s first CC article made the top ten. It is the first, we hope, of many.
Eight of our top 20 articles are about movies and television: Gregory Hood on Scarface, The Avengers, and The Last Samurai, Jef Costello on Dark Shadows, Fight Club, and Breaking Bad, Trevor Lynch on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which has been in the top ten for 6 months now), and John Morgan on God Bless America. Since Hollywood and the television industry are the primary media of anti-white propaganda, racially conscious analyses of movies and TV are highly effective at drawing traffic and combating enemy propaganda. (See Trevor Lynch, “Why I Write.”)
Two of our top ten articles were on comics and graphic novels: Christopher Pankhurst on “Civil War and The Big Lie” and Ted Sallis on “Marvel Comics, Ethnicity, and Race” (in German translation).
