Counter-Currents Under Attack!

802 words

Over the past few days, Counter-Currents suffered its worst DDoS attack ever. Basically, antifa with access to (((virtually unlimited resources))) flooded the website with page view and search requests until it was impossible for normal people to read the site. Fortunately, Mike Polignano, with a lot of help from our friends, managed to put new counter-measures in place, and things are getting back to normal.

Unfortunately, there has been some collateral damage. We have had to ban the ip addresses that have tried to get into the site the most. That includes the attackers, of course. But it also includes our most loyal readers. For a short time, that even included me and John Morgan. So if you are getting a message saying that you have been ip banned, please write to Mike Polignano at [email protected] and ask to placed on our Huhwyte List. He’ll be able to look at your web traffic and determine if you are legit. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Another bit of bad news is the apparent failure of Maker Support, which has not been charging donors or paying out pledges for a while now. If you have an account supporting me at Maker Support (https://www.makersupport.com/gregjohnson), please consider shutting it down and signing up for a credit card donation on our Donate page.

These sorts of attacks remind us of how vulnerable we all are.

After NPI and altright.com were basically chased off the internet, I figured the forces of evil would turn their attention elsewhere. First, The Daily Stormer and The Right Stuff were targeted by the same DDoS attackers. Then they came for Counter-Currents.

Basically, these people are not going to stop until we are driven off the internet and have to go back to the days of mailing checks to PO Boxes.

Unless we do something about it.

Fortunately, we can do something about it. We are doing something about it. We are learning new ways to secure our sites and domains. We are exploring different ways to take online payments. Because people are really wedded to online payments. People are so wedded to PayPal that when they deplatformed us last summer after Charlottesville, a lot of our monthly donors simply disappeared. I have a horrible vision of them telling their mulatto grandchildren someday that “We could have saved the white race, but unfortunately, the resistance didn’t take PayPal. So we bought stuff on Ebay instead.”

Winter is coming for white advocacy. White people plan for winters. We need to invest in our movement today if we expect it to survive.

Normally, I would ask you all to sign up for a monthly donation on your credit card. But after the failures of Hatreon and Maker Support (which were strangled by credit card processors for political reasons), it would be foolish to think that the same thing will not happen to us.

So if you want to make a monthly pledge, please do so.

But I would prefer that you decide on a comfortable monthly pledge, multiply it by 12, and make a single donation today.

Yes, things have gotten that dicey.

I am typing this with a sense of urgency, because I have literally seen friends on Facebook melt into nothingness in the middle of text chats, as their accounts have been suspended or outright cancelled for thought-crime. I don’t want you to have the same experience at Counter-Currents.

Counter-Currents, like most journals of dissident ideas, is dependent upon donations. The main focus of our effort is our webzine, which reaches a vastly larger audience than our books, which basically break even. What keeps the webzine afloat and reaching more than 150,000 unique visitors a month are your donations.

More than a million unique visitors read Counter-Currents in 2017, but fewer than 400 of them made donations to keep it going. The rest were free riders. Were you one of them, dear reader?

Don’t let the censors and deplatformers win. Support Counter-Currents today.

There are two ways you can support Counter-Currents:

  • First, you can make is a single donation of any size.
  • Second, you can make a recurring donation of any size.

Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. Please use the secure online form below.

  • NOTE: If you want to give only a monthly donation, enter that amount in the monthly donation box and 0.00 in the one-time donation box.
  • American Express
    Discover
    MasterCard
    Visa
    JCB
    Maestro
     

You may also send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF. Our address is:

Counter-Currents
PO Box 22638

Counter-Currents also takes Bitcoin.

Please give generously!

Note: Donations to Counter-Currents and North American New Right are not tax deductible. Real change never is!

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today. Thank you for your support.

    I hope to be able to donate something, but the dollar is now very expensive compared to the real.

    Greetings from Brazil.

    I’ve donated for a long time now and it’s the only site that I feel genuinely guilty about not being able to donate more. I wanted to thank the editors and contributors for the hours of stimulation, education and indeed entertainment they’ve provided me over the years. This site is so vital and important and I urge everyone reading this to consider donating.

    Greg, you’ve banned IPs from Protonmail’s VPN service. Is it possible that Counter-Currents has simply experienced a bump in page views since its content has been posted on Voat.co? Vdare and Occidental Observer likewise thought they were “under attack” when in it is very likely an increase in visibility from links posted there.

      No, it was obviously an attack.

    The Unz Review was the first website to be hit, I believe, after it published the following article on April 8-9, 2018:

    “How Israel and Its Partisans Work to Censor the Internet”

    https://www.unz.com/article/how-israel-and-its-partisans-work-to-censor-the-internet/

    “Yes, our website was hit by an exceptionally large wave of bots from a very wide variety of different IP addresses, and it began soon after we released this particular article. Perhaps coincidence, perhaps not.

    We finally managed to block them all earlier this morning using some temporary measures. I’ll be spending the next day or two adding some further defenses in hopes of preventing something like this from happening in the future.” – https://www.unz.com/article/how-israel-and-its-partisans-work-to-censor-the-internet/#comment-2280647

    the website insists my credit card was declined (which should not be)! I’ll send a donation the old fashioned way. thank you for your tireless (& often thankless!) high calibre work.

    I’ve been a patron on Hatreon for some time. Are you saying you can no longer receive online donations via that site, but only through the secure form above? If so, I’ll close my Hatreon account and make a single donation through the Counter-Currents site for the year.

    This thought-policing is incredibly frustrating. We need to explore effective means of increasing the cost of aggressive censorship and the myriad other forms of discrimination the Left is prepared to single-mindedly level against us…

      Hatreon has not been paying out for some months now.

    Obvioulsy, the question is: can we have internet structure that can´t be shut down -> so what we need is a combined effort of all dissidents to create these structures. I don´t know if something like that is going on behind the scenes (and not be talked about to keep it secret) but that is what we need, and what I therefore hereby call upon.

    I take it that that would have to be structures on p2p (peer – to – peer) – basis, i.e. there are no servers but files are hosted on a myriad of private computers. Those are established techniques, e.g. I think Bitchute (the youtube alternative) works that way. It is also possible to host sites based on some blockchain protocol; Matt Parrott always pointed that out, I don´t have the details as this wrongthinker has for the moment vanished

    Weev, in a recent video (that he f*cked up and made unwatchable by disrespectful videogame noise all along), posits that it´s necessary to have at least 1 geopraphical location that allows us IP addresses

    … ok in short: of-course it is possible, what it needs is money: we can easily raise this money, it´s just a matter of the will to get it done.

    So please WN, get a WN-secure internet organized, assuming that that is not already on the way. Get over some infighting conflict and make the combined effort to get this done!
    If we take the claim serious that the internet is pivotal for WN and that WN is pivotal for the survival of the White Race, it is clear what has to be done.

      A better and more simple solution is to fund our own registrars and content distribution networks.

    Will be able to take the 12x challenge later this month. It’s important to support a site like C-C that provides meaningful introductions, and/or rare secondary literature and interpretations, of the essential thinkers they don’t rightly tell you about in school. Godspeed.

      I just stumbled on your site after clicking a link from vdare. It seems to me that if somebody wanted to make a one-time donation but was worried about being doxed, one could go to the supermarket with cash, buy a Visa or MasterCard prepaid card, and donate using that instrument. Or mail the card directly to the organization you’re trying to support anonymously.

    Hi Greg,

    I’d like to make a donation but I’m concerned about how secure this is (i.e. my name being found out). Is there any reassurance that you can offer me (and others)?

    Thanks

      The most anonymous thing you can do is send cash. Every other form of transaction leaves some sort of trace. But of course that information would only be easily accessible to state actors.

    Not just C_C I think. I’ve also been getting system alerts when trying to access AmRen and Occidental Observer in the past couple of days. You just have to be persistent and eventually you’ll get through.

    As we always say: “If you’re not catching flak, you’re not over the target.”

    I just sent you guys $120 via Bitcoin a few min ago.

    Don’t let the bastards get you down!

    Other CC readers: If you enjoy the work CC produces (and what they produce is top-notch) and benefit from it, pony up a donation. It’s our duty to support entities like CC. They are doing heavy lifting for the cause.

      Seconded, increased my monthly donation and donated a year’s worth as a one time payment as well.

      Men, pick up an extra shift, go without a luxury, skip eating out or drinking for a week and pay into the war chest. Potential first time donors, be bold and pull the trigger.
