    The Times They Are a-Changin’!
    It’s great to see Counter Currents grow, it makes me believe in the future.

    It is encouraging that greater numbers continue to be drawn to this website, and the best part is – we know that the record books are going to be broken again in November – the only question is by how much.

    Congratulations. I hope your website and overall activities will keep growing and reaching out to a bigger audience.
    While I’m at it, I suggest Robert Stark to interview folks from the M.A.S. (Mouvement d’Action Sociale), Terre & Peuple (a völkisch association directed by Pierre Vial) or from the french magazine Réfléchir & Agir, which are all “post-grecist offshoots”, as I like to call them.
    Gabriele Adinolfi or Philippe Baillet would be great to have on air too (although I only know the latter’s writings).

    Thanks again for your hard work.

    P.S. DEVIANCE, contacte-moi asap, c’est important.

    Interesting that there are so many readers from India. I wonder if it’s mostly European expats, or if they’re natives.

    These statistics are interesting; something to sink one’s analytical teeth into. I wonder why their is such a high readership in the two largest Australian cities? And weighted by population, Australia ranks very highly as a country. I wonder if this reflects angst over a growing imigrant population.

    Most of us thought an Obama win would be best for us.
    It has turned out much more beneficial that expected.
    The left media is gloating that the Republican loss is due to whites demographic displacement by immigrants.
    They are saying it’s only going to get worse for conservative whites. They are rubbing the white’s faces in it.
    Conservatives Anne Coulter and O’Reilly concur.
    Laura Ingram seems to agree.
    The media, particularly the left, is doing our work for us!
