Conservatism Inc.’s Collapse; Poet Seeks Privacy; Etc
This month’s big event was the annual conference of American Renaissance in Tennessee over the last weekend. It was a great success—the best of the several AmRen conferences I’ve attended. One difference with previous AmRen conferences in this location is that the anti-white protestors (practically all of them, of course, white themselves—Goodwhites) were allowed to... Read More
Z! Haukeness’ White Privilege vs. Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance
You can now sign up for the 2016 White Privilege Conference, titled Re-Imagining Equity and Justice in the United States, to be held at the downtown Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia, Wednesday April 13th to Sunday April 17th. Save the date! (And don’t confuse it with the American Renaissance conference May 20-22 with speakers including (again)... Read More
At Salon.com I encounter an article lengthily titled, America’s virulent racists: The sick ideas and perverted “science” of the American Renaissance, and published in book for by Harvard University Press. The burden of the piece is that American Renaissance and its honcho, Jared Taylor, are “Hitlerian,” “anti-Semitic," and hold “extremist views.” These are grave accusations,... Read More
EDIT, 5/1/14: Looks like my comment did finally appear, buried among over 500 others. Comment moderation is an understandable practice, but at times it is rather annoying, especially when it's used for less than above-board purposes. I left a comment to Jared Taylor's review of Nicholas Wade's forthcoming book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race, and... Read More
I apologize for having taken so long to respond to Jared Taylor`s June 19 anti-miscegenation blast. I should say that in the interim I have been in Jared`s company, and we have discussed the topic, to fair mutual satisfaction. In Gordon Bowker`s 2003 biography of George Orwell we learn (p. 296) that “[Orwell] found personal... Read More
Jim Goad, in his comments about the “Fear of an Erudite White,” says just about everything I could have said about Jared Taylor and his new book, which I’m still reading with increasing admiration for its author. I agree that one can’t praise Jared sufficiently for his Southern courtliness, verbal brilliance, and willingness to speak... Read More
Did Solzhenitsyn make a difference?
A few weeks ago in this space I did a Q&A with Jared Taylor of the race-realist American Renaissance website and monthly newsletter. At the time, Jared was preparing for the annual conference of his organization, which was to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina this coming weekend, February 4-6. The previous year's event had... Read More
A Q&A with Jared Taylor.
Jared Taylor is the originator and editor of the American Renaissance website and monthly newsletter, which offer news, reviews, and opinions from a race-realist perspective. AR's 2010 annual conference last February was sabotaged by leftists phoning in death threats to employees of the conference hotel. Nothing daunted, Jared has scheduled the 2011 conference for this...

Although Justin and I have been friends for many years, and allies against the neo-Trotskyist scourge, fairness compels me to note his overstatement of my critical remarks about Jared Taylor. It was not my intention to treat Jared as a representative of leftist victimology. I was simply commenting on the reactive character of his white... Read More
