Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

There is a lot of good news from Counter-Currents for December.

1. Our Readership and Web Traffic

In terms of web traffic, December was a very good month. November was our best month ever, buoyed by post-election discussion, especially Gregory Hood’s viral article “A White Nationalist Memo to White Male Republicans,” which was read  21,602 times on our site alone and widely reprinted on the web. But even without such a viral article — and despite Christmas, which does depress traffic — in December we had 109,265 unique visitors (down from 110,851 in November). Our other December statistics were very close to November’s too.

    A suggestion for Greg/Counter-currents:

    I visited a friend in Northern Idaho recently. He made a remark that while Counter-currents is in the forefront of establishing some kind of European-based culture in today’s pc climate, he points out that it’s largely based on reading – which is a very solitary activity. He advocated an activity that brings European peoples together, such as folk dancing. An excellent point. I did try to get Greg to show some You Tube videos of European folk dances as part his “video of the day” on an occasional basis, but I have yet to see it.

    Anyway, European folk dancing is genetically European and is a great way of bringing whites together to enjoy a fun physical activity with great European music and meeting people and is a great avenue for some dialogue and spreading our ideas among whites.

    Go for it!

    Washington ,D.C. on 9th place. Probably no more than 200,000 whites live in D.C., and most are government and foreign embassies officials. What is the meaning of this ?

      A lot more white people commute into DC to work there. Also, the high concentration of Jews, blacks, and cultural diversity has the same effect on whites in DC as in NYC.

    I would strongly encourage you also to eventually publish Savitri Devi’s books ‘Hard as Krupp Steel’ & ‘Memories and Reflections of an Aryan Woman’.

    “5. Where Our Readers Are: The Top 20 Cities

    haha this seems strange to me?

      It shouldn’t seem strange. Our ideas are based on experience. And NYC is the place where whites have maximum day-to-day exposure to Jews, non-whites, and cultural diversity.
