Counter-Currents/North American New Right Newsletter: June 2012

1,061 words

Editor’s Note:

Due to travel to deal with a family medical emergency, our June newsletter has been delayed. To save time, I have decided to post it on our front page rather than send it to our mailing list.

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

On June 11, Counter-Currents celebrated our second anniversary of going online. We are also launching a major fundraising drive.

As you can see, our traffic has remained pretty much plateaued since January. This has been our pattern: growth spurts, followed by a few months plateaued.

Congratulations to Patrick Lebrun for his first Counter-Currents article, which made our top 20. Congratulations also to Ava Moretti and George Hocking for their first top 10 articles.

Congratulations to Andrew Hamilton for four top 20 articles in June. Greg Johnson had three, Trevor Lynch and Jef Costello both had two.

Our perennial favorites, Daniel Michaels on Stalin’s plan to conquer Europe, Irmin Vinson on Hitler, and Gregory Hood on Scarface, were in our top 10 yet again.

Six of our top 20 articles are about movies and television: Gregory Hood on Scarface, Jef Costello on Fight Club and Breaking Bad, Trevor Lynch on Prometheus and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which has been in the top ten for 7 months now), and Andrew Hamilton on Batman Returns.

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.”)
