American Alt-Right Figures Visit Europe

Joe Mulhall - 18 04 17

Other speakers include Kevin MacDonald, the notorious American antisemitic editor of The Occidental Observer (OO) and fellow OO contributor Dr Andrew Joyce who serves as an advisor to the tiny and irrelevant British Renaissance Policy Institute run by Jack Sen. Also present will be the French nationalist Guillaume Durocher, who writes for both Counter-Currents and the Occidental Observer.

Johnson has become increasingly well known among far/alt right circles in the UK in recent years. Having addressed the London Forum numerous times, he has proceeded to set up Forum branches in New York and Seattle.

His website Counter Currents has also experienced a period of growth with March 2017 being its best month ever in terms of unique visitors (187,296). The website’s fortunes have been tied to the rise of the so-called alt-right and after America, Great Britain provides the most visitors. Out of the top ten cities visiting the site five are based in Europe with Berlin, London and Stockholm coming in second, third and fourth respectively.

However, it is not all good news for Johnson and Counter Currents. Following a campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Centre and the Washington Post removed Counter Currents from its Affiliate Marketing program, costing the website an estimated $6000 a year.

The arrival of Johnson, MacDonald and Joyce in Europe is further evidence of the increasingly transnational nature of the alt/far right and the ever increasing number of transatlantic links.
