Counter-Currents/North American New Right Newsletter: May 2016Greg Johnson
Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,
1. Our Readership and Web Traffic
May was our strongest month ever. We broke records across the board. May was also Gregory Hood month. On May 30th, we published the Kindle of Hood’s Waking Up from the American Dream, and it immediately shot to #1 in the category of Nationalism, #2 in Political Parties, and #4 in Ideologies & Doctrines. He also had three of the top five articles, including his viral review of The Angry Birds Movie.

7. Our Amazon Affiliate Membership
In March of 2015, under pressure from the SPLC, which was amplified in the pages of the Washington Post, Amazon.com dropped Counter-Currents from its Affiliate Marketing program, which earned us about $6,000/year — a substantial financial hit to a business as small as ours. The SPLC’s aim, of course, is to put us out of business. Fortunately, our readers have rallied to our aid.
