During last year’s American Renaissance (AmRen) Conference the website’s publisher Jared Taylor said that the conference might have outgrown the Montgomery Bell Park Inn that they have held this event for the past six years and may have to find a larger venue for 2018. Of course, the fact that the largest opposition to the conference was right outside as he said this could have made him thought that it might be time to go. But something must have changed because they will be back once again to infest this park just outside Nashville, and they are having it again in the spring as opposed to the summer outing of 2017.
Now last year’s conference took place just two weeks before the Unite the Right rally Charlottesville, Virginia, and that event, which left one person dead at the hands of a fascist, saw many that also attended AmRen 2017. Charlottesville also galvanized people around the world to be more proactive against this scum, and in the weeks and months that followed we saw not only more people coming out to oppose them at their events, some of their events being shut down beforehand, and a purge on Twitter of hatemongers to include Jared Taylor, we have also seen the neo-fascists become increasingly violent in response. “Our movement has seen dramatic progress but also startling setbacks,” AmRen says in their announcement. “We must take inspiration from the progress and learn from the setbacks.” So if the beautiful people of Middle Tennessee thought this might be over…nope. They are still feeling their oats, and it is up to society to make oatmeal out of them! You can bet there will be opposition, and it will be larger than last year’s!
