American Renaissance 2018

4,411 words

Going to AmRen was the most impulsive thing I’ve done in the past seven years. Although I’ve been attending local events, the idea of flying alone, halfway across the country, to an event with a notorious reputation according to my liberal city, is not something a sensible person like me would ever do.

In Praise of Jared Taylor:
A Model for Would-be Leaders of the Right

1,474 words

For quite a while now, I’ve been advising friends on the Right by suggesting they ask themselves a simple question: “What would Jared Taylor do?” Aside from the solid work he has done for our cause for close to thirty years now, you will be hard-pressed to find anyone who has anything bad to say about Jared. When it comes to leadership, character is the be-all and end-all. Jared has plenty of it, while others on the Right who proclaim themselves “leaders” (something Jared has never done) often seem to have very little. Read more …

Déjà Jew:
Jared Taylor & the “Alt Right Purge” on Twitter

2,479 words

On December 18th, Twitter deleted the accounts of Jared Taylor and American Renaissance and other groups considered to be on the ‘Alt Right.’ I don’t know why, but this affected me far worse than the mass deplatforming which took place after the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally this past summer. At least after Charlottesville, there was an ostensible reason for the mainstream’s reaction. Read more …

American Renaissance 2017 a Triumph

454 words

Last weekend’s 2017 American Renaissance conference was a triumph. There was a capacity crowd of 300 people, and many more had to be turned away. More than half the people present were attending their first AmRen conference. The average age of the crowd was significantly younger than at the last AmRen conference I attended in 2008.

American Renaissance Conference 2015:
Seeking the Spirit of Our People

2,409 words

John William Waterhouse, Destiny, 1900

John William Waterhouse, Destiny, 1900

Last Friday my colleague and I flew down to Nashville, rented a car, and drove out to Montgomery Bell State Park to attend the 2015 American Renaissance (AmRen) conference. My colleague, who went to the conference all four times it was held at this scenic venue, commented that making this journey is starting to feel like a ritual for him. Although, I only attended the last three conferences, I tend to agree, and perhaps having steadfast and reliable rituals is a good thing, but a conference concerning our movement should never become too familiar or repetitious. We need growth and development to show that we are alive and thriving.  Read more …

American Renaissance Conference 2015:
The Great Debate Goes On

RamZPaul

RamZPaul

2,123 words

The 2015 American Renaissance Conference, April 17-19, had a healthy turnout of nearly 200 attendees, making it AmRen’s biggest confab since 2008. As it has for the past few years, AmRen held it at an inn/conference center in a Tennessee state park an hour’s drive west of Nashville.

The conference/banquet room was vast (actually it was three regular meeting rooms combined into one via slide-away partitions), but still looked near capacity. Read more …

Parrott on Conferences

I would like to respond to Parrott’s essay, answering Greg Johnson’s original piece about “White Nationalist conferences.” Two points to begin with.

First, with respect to the actual debate, I agree with Johnson as regards the situation today; Read more …

I’m Going to AmRen:
In Defense of the National Conference Model

926 words

StillLifewithPie2Greg Johnson’s recent article, “Rethinking the White Nationalist Conference,” accurately concludes that the political climate has changed dramatically in the past couple decades of AmRen’s existence. It also summarizes many of the complaints about the conference I’ve heard over the years, all but one of which are true, but beside the point. It’s definitely time to step back and ask ourselves how we should adapt ourselves to the radically altered political landscape, and how that flagship of White Identity, the annual American Renaissance conference, fits in with that.  Read more …

Rethinking the White Nationalist Conference

When American Renaissance had its first conference in 1994, the American media were dominated by the big three television networks, magazines and newspapers were primarily printed, and the internet was still in its infancy.  Read more …

“We Are at the End of Something”:
The American Renaissance Interview

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3,715 words

American Renaissance: You have said that modernity is the enemy of identity. Could you explain this idea further?

Alain de Benoist: When one considers modernity, one must consider two meanings of the word. The first is known to everyone: It is the changes of life that come with more material wealth. But modernity is also the product of an ideology that appeared in the 17th and 18th century with the Enlightenment. Read more …

American Renaissance 2011:
A Tale of Two Conferences

300 words

The 2011 American Renaissance conference was canceled due to pressure from egalitarian love-mongers, just as the 2010 conference was canceled.

But in 2010, dozens of speakers and attendees still converged on Dulles Airport, an impromptu location for speeches was found, and there was a great deal of camaraderie and productive networking.

Why We Can’t Wait

1,343 words

As much as Wilmot Robertson did for the white survival movement — and his work was impressive and considerable — his one major mistake was insisting that “nothing could be done” by whites to take back their civilization until an unspecified period of “education” made conditions right for action. He launched a magazine, Instauration, in 1975 to help in that education effort. Read more …
