American Renaissance Conference makes news

I returned home late last night from an absolutely exhilarating weekend spent at the American Renaissance Conference! (Here’s the summary of the conference on the AmRen website.)

It was such a delight to meet so many fans of The Political Cesspool Radio Program,several of whom told me they would not have known about the event had it not been for our promotional efforts. We were more than happy to help.

I will soon be posting a text version of the speech I delivered to the gathering. Additional reports pertaining to last weekend’s festivities will also soon follow.

In the meantime, it looks as though our meeting has been making news.

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – A Middle Tennessee state park is hosting a conference this weekend that’s sure to pique interest and may inflame some tempers.

It’s called the “American Renaissance” conference, connected to the magazine of the same name. Those taking part call themselves, “white advocates,” others say they’re downright racist.

The group calls it an academic conference where professors, activists, and writers will discuss controversial topics like race and intelligence even racial brain shape.

We talked with the editor of American Renaissance on Friday at the first day of his conference in Dickson County. He says their message is misunderstood.

But, there are plenty of people who aren’t buying it. Critics like the chairman of the Tennessee Democratic Party says American Renaissance is nothing more than a racist group.

Regardless of how you feel about their message, they will be talking about it loud and clear this weekend to about 150 supporters from around the country who have paid to be a part of this weekend long conference right here in Middle Tennessee.

The anti-defamation league has called American Renaissance a white supremacist journal that blames the decline of American society on integrationist social policies.

The American Renaissance conference started Friday at Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson County and will run through Sunday.

I would like for those of you who attended the conference to set the record straight for the so-called establishment press. Write your assessment of the weekend event by leaving a comment in the box below.

During our live broadcast of TPC on Saturday, March 17, we did our part by detailing the conference at great length. The dinner banquet, in fact, was going on simultaneously as I called into the studio from my hotel room to offer a report from the scene.

The first two hours of the show provided the listening audience with comprehensive coverage of the AmRen festivities.

Be sure to refresh the webpage if the current week’s show does not appear for you.

You will notice that the audio isn’t studio broadcast quality, since we were on location and forced to host the show via telephone. However, what we lack in technical quality this week is made up for with zeal and positive emotion!

The in-studio production staff was able to improve our connection a great deal after the first segment.
