Announcing American Renaissance`s 2010 Conference!

I can see
the article`s lead sentence already:

“White supremacists from three continents gathered in the Washington, DC
area over the weekend to vent their hatred of minorities
and bemoan their loss of privileges”!

That will
be the spin that the Southern Poverty Law Center ($PLC)
will put on the upcoming
American
Renaissance
(AR)

conference
, to be held in the DC area February
19-21. And the Washington Post

won`t be far behind
in suggesting that we were only
barely able to suppress our urge to

goose-step
around the conference hall and shout

“Sieg
Heil!”
 

That is
what liberals do when whites get together to talk about
their interests as a people.

I should
know. This will be the ninth AR conference since we
started having them in 1994. (I wrote about them in
VDARE.COM in

2008
,

2006,
and
2004).
There is a substantial portion of the
population—diminishing in number, to be sure—whose
brains stop working when they
hear
the word “white”

associated with otherwise respectable words like
heritage,
pride,
survival,
or rights.”
Every other group in the country can talk about these
things. But
as
soon as whites do, it is pure evil.

This has
been official doctrine ever since the `60s or `70s. And
this official doctrine is dying a particularly lingering
death.

Virtually
all whites prefer the company of other whites—just look

where they live
and where

they send their children to school
—but all is
forgiven so long as they
pretend to
love diversity. It is the idea of 300 of us all in the
same room, laughing openly at the idea that

diversity is a strength,
that is more than the
hypocrites who run the country can stand.

Our
conference will also attract a fragrant band of
protestors who will march around outside, braying about
how bad we are, and who will promote
tolerance”
and diversity
by trying to shut the conference down. These protestors
are devoted to us. We can reliably count on them to
provide free entertainment for conference guests and to
ensure plenty of press and TV coverage. It just wouldn`t
be an AR conference without them.

For 2010 we
have a first-rate lineup of speakers.


Nick Griffin,
Chairman of the

British National Party
, could be our top draw. Fresh
from his victorious campaign for a seat in the
Euro-Parliament, he will speak about the wisdom British
voters showed in rallying to the view that w:st="on">Britain has the right to remain
British. The
United Kingdom

faces the same problem we do: waves of Third-World
immigrants who care nothing about the traditions of the
host country and are changing it beyond recognition.

As Mr.
Griffin found when he recently
waded
into the piranha pit
as a guest on BBC TV`s flagship
politics program,

Question Time,

nothing enrages the established parties more than
outsiders chewing into their monopoly. Conservatives and
Labour alike are reduced to cries of
“Nazi” as
they see their

voters defecting to the one party
that really cares
about the future of their country.

Another
star speaker: filmmaker Craig Bodeker. His

A
Conversation About Race,

which

exposes the double standards and sloppy thinking about
race
and “racism”, won the expected praise from dissident media such as
VDARE.COM and
American Renaissance
but is so deft and convincing
that even James Taranto of the
Wall Street Journal admitted he found the documentary
“fascinating”
and wrote that
“Bodeker makes a compelling case that much of what he
calls the `conventional wisdom` about race consists of .
. . unthinking assumptions about the nature of American
society and the racial attitudes of others”
. [In
Defense of Carol Swain
,  
October 26, 2009]Even the $outhern Poverty
Law Center

conceded
that Mr. Bodeker
“comes across as
an affable guy intent on using logic and facts to debunk
what he sees as the myth of racism”
.

It takes an
unusual guy to win plaudits from such a variety of
sources. Mr. Bodeker will tell us how he did it.

Hugh
Kennedy is a prominent legal scholar who will talk about
the Left`s strategy of chipping away at the First
Amendment. Champions of
“diversity”
and “tolerance”
are never happier than when they are muzzling opponents,
but they haven`t quite figured out a way around the
Constitution. Mr. Kennedy will explain what stands
between them and the thought-crime laws they are itching
to pass, and what we will have to do to keep sites like
VDARE.COM safe from back-door censorship.

Another
speaker will be

Dan Roodt,
a leader of the

beleaguered
Afrikaners of

South Africa.
If you think we have a worrisome
future, imagine what it is like for
Africa
`s white tribe: a proud, pioneering
people with a

400-year history
, trying to maintain their culture
and traditions in the face of

a hostile black majority
. Since 2000, Mr. Roodt has
led the
Pro-Afrikaans Action Group.
This role has given him
such notoriety that he has sometimes had to give
speeches surrounded by bodyguards. He will talk about
the roots of the mentality that seems to be driving
whites all around the world towards surrender.

And there
will be many other excellent speakers. Donald Thomas
will expose the shocking machinations behind what is
known as

“refugee resettlement”.

Your
servant and occasional
VDARE.COM
contributor
will talk about just what is at stake if
we continue to drift towards dispossession.
David Yeagley—also
a VDARE.COM
contributor
—will offer a Comanche`s appraisal of the
white man`s plight. Raymond Wolters of the University of
Delaware, one of America`s most courageous academics,
will describe the will `o the wisps the educational
establishment has been chasing in its great and futile
effort to “close
the gaps”
. The inimitable

Sam Dickson
will close the conference, as he always
does, with what amounts to a benediction for heretics—the
heretics we find ourselves to be
as soon as we stray
from today`s
secular
religion
of race.

The real
conference, however, will take place as always in the
halls, at the bar, during coffee breaks, and late into
the night, as people from nearly every American state
enjoy the heady atmosphere that only the undeceived can
create.

Perhaps

it is because we have a black president,
or perhaps
because immigration is now spreading from the coasts to
every part of the country, but unprecedented numbers of
whites are coming out their coma and beginning to
realize where our country is heading. The result is
energy, ideas, activism, and commitment on a far greater
scale than at any time in the 20 years since
American
Renaissance
began publishing.

These are
still very dark times in America. But the movement to
speak out in the name of our nation`s founding stock—to
put our house back in order—is building up to critical
mass. It helps, of course, that we have history,
morality, and human nature all on our side.

Do you care
about the America you will be passing on to your
children and grand-children? Then join us in February!
