The Counter-Currents Newsletter, September 2019

925 words

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

September was our best month ever in terms of traffic: 234,278 unique visitors, almost 100,000 over what we had in June! There has been a steep and steady rise in traffic since June. This is not merely due to a few viral articles, although those helped. There are also structural factors at work:

  • YouTube censorship is causing dissidents to leave that platform looking for more vital ones.
  • Twitter is increasingly dead due to censorship, so dissidents are leaving that platform as well.
  • The establishment continues to push multiculturalism, globalization, and the Great Replacement, driving people to look for alternatives, and more and more of them are finding Counter-Currents.

If you are a new reader, please tell us how you discovered Counter-Currents and why you come back. Just leave a comment below.

In July we were deplatformed from yet another credit card processor. This was a major blow. However, in August, we put another solution in place. Realistically, though, who knows how long these sorts of things will last.

For a few days, due to a software problem, we lost the ability to sign people up for new monthly donations. That problem has now been fixed. 

It is becoming increasingly clear that deplatforming might no longer allow us to continue supporting Counter-Currents through book sales and small donations from a large number of supporters. There may come a day — very soon, actually — when we simply can no longer take conventional online payments at all. At that point, we will only be able to receive money through:

  1. Crypto currencies
  2. The mail

And not a lot of our supporters will make that transition, unfortunately.

Realistically, that means that if Counter-Currents is going to continue to grow, we must cultivate a smaller circle of high-commitment, high-dollar patrons. I know you are out there. Until now, you have been part of a much larger donor pool, and you could take that into account when calculating your support. Now, we can no longer take that for granted. So I would like to talk to you about increasing your support to make Counter-Currents less vulnerable to deplatforming. If you want to help out, please contact me at [email protected].

In September, we added 75 pieces to our webzine, including four podcasts. Our Top 20 articles and full stats are below.

4. How You Can Help Counter-Currents

Support Counter-Currents

Dear Reader,

Like all promoters of ideas that go against the current, Counter-Currents depends on the donations of readers and friends to survive and to grow.

Your contributions will go to pay honoraria and stipends to writers for Counter-Currents.

Over the years, I have seen many talented writers appear, only to disappear a few months or years later.

At first, they are sustained by sheer idealism. But after a while, they learn that idealism alone cannot sustain them when they are hit with temporary feelings of discouragement or competing personal obligations.

By paying writers, we can sustain their interest and enthusiasm through the ups and downs of life. Our goal is to foster talented writers and keep them in the fight for the long haul.

You can make single or recurring donations of any size.

Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they let us better predict and plan for the future.  We also accept CryptoCurrency donations and are happy to receive your donations by mail.  Regardless of which donation type you choose, know you have our sincere gratitude and thanks.

Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay Majority Estate Planning contains many helpful suggestions.

Please give generously!

Note: Donations to Counter-Currents 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.

Greg Johnson

    Does anyone know when Greg Johnsons book “White Identity Politics” is going to be released?
    I am planning on purchasing two other books on Counter Currents. If “White Identity Politics” is going to be released soon, I will wait and order all three at the same time.
    I tried searching around to see if this information was already posted somewhere but couldn’t find anything.

      The book will be released at the end of May, 2020.

    I only discovered CC about 6 months ago. I think it may have been through a variety of Youtube clips listening to Amren etc. Since then I have been reading as much as I can in the time I have available. Like others, I became sick and tired of the constant bashing of whites and our interests. Since I have been visiting this great resource, I have noticed myself standing taller in the knowledge my ancestors built this modern world. We should be proud of their (and our) achievements. Our enemies know this of course, and hence the plan to constantly berate us and attempt to make our children feel guilt for being who they are. We need to nurture our children and make them proud to be sons and daughters of a great race.

      Thanks for this, it is helpful and encouraging.

    I’m happy to see this site getting more traffic but I have to insert one caveat about the Rammstein article; it appears that a huge number of comment posters were simply agitated Rammstein fans deeply triggered by having their “heroes” being criticized. The majority of the comments consisted of (to paraphrase) “You are an idiot and a racist!! You don’t know what you are talking about!!!” and ” Rammstein rules man!! “; many appeared barely able to string two coherent sentences together. Such is the state of the music scene i guess.

    Still such crossover exposure might have left the more thoughtful to think over the article and explore the site further perhaps planting the seeds of truth and doubting mainstream narratives; if that’s the case then it’s worth it having the masses turning some comment sections into raging dumpster fires.

    My first Counter-Currents article I read was Richard Houck’s “7-11 Nationalism.” While I read that back in June, I didn’t actively begin reading other CC content until August. As a white college student in today’s environment, I couldn’t be more thankful for such a splendid website.

    I clearly remember the first time I heard about counter-currents – it was in November 2016, just 6 days after the 2016 US Presidential election. I froze this newscast at 25 seconds and squinted closely enough to discover redice.tv, counter-currents.com, eurocanadian.ca, therightstuff.biz. I don’t remember checking out the other ones. I probably would have discovered this site eventually because I discovered JF Gariepy in 2018 and saw Greg Johnson on there.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/3065946/toronto-staff-remove-signs-urging-white-people-to-mobilize-against-multiculturalism/

    I’ve never donated before but I’ll make one this month. Money’s a bit tight now but I do want to support the people that work hard to produce this content.

    My path here:

    Driven from the left by their authoritarianism and general batshit craziness. Searched for alternatives on YouTube. Douglas Murray, Victor Davis Hanson, even Jonathan Haidt and Brett Weinstein. Say Jared Taylor on Cnn which led me to American Renaissance where I saw Greg Johnson.
    I come back for self-preservation.
