Editor’s Note:

After more than a month away from home, dealing with a family medical emergency, I am back in my office and getting caught up.  To save time, I have decided to post our July newsletter on our front page rather than send it to our mailing list.

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.

Dominique Venner, Guillaume Faye, Alexander Dugin, Andy Nowicki, and Bruce Longfellow made their first appearances in the top 20.

Three pieces by European New Right luminaries made our top 20: Alexander Dugin, Dominique Venner, and Guillaume Faye

Greg Johnson and Andrew Hamilton both had three top 20 pieces. Gregory Hood had two.

Eight of our top 20 articles are about movies and television and related popular culture phenomena: Gregory Hood on Scarface and The Dark Knight Rises, Jef Costello on Breaking Bad, Trevor Lynch on Christopher Nolan’s first two Batman movies, Andrew Hamilton on Kevin Sorbo, James O’Meara on the Batman movies, Andy Nowicki on the Aurora, Colorado massacre at a showing of The Dark Knight Rises, and Jack Donovan on zombiemania. Four of these pieces are related to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, thus capitalizing on the massive publicity surrounding one of the most anticipated and watched movies in history.

As I never tire of pointing out: 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 [22].”)
