20. Gregory Hood, “What Makes Republicans Tick?” November 2, 2012: 2,266

First of all, special congratulations are due Gregory Hood, who not only had three of the top 10 articles (and a 4th in the top 20), but whose #1 article went viral. It was read more than 21,000 times on Counter-Currents alone in less than a month, and there is no telling how many other times it was read elsewhere.

Andrew Hamilton, Greg Johnson, and Matt Parrott all had two articles each in the top 20.

November’s top articles are a remarkable blend of political commentary, history (Stalin’s plans to conquer Europe), high culture (Aristotle, Rodin), and popular culture (Scarface, Pulp Fiction, James Bond, Frank Frazetta, Hugo Schwyzer, and Last Resort). Thirteen of our top 20 articles were published in November, and the rest were older articles that people are finding through web searches.
