Jews and the ADL; "Who are the Real Hate Mongers?"
In 1999, three mailings from the 11th Hour Remnant Messenger came
to ADL's attention. A nine-page letter dated February 1999, the
first of these mailings, asked, "Who are the real hate mongers?"
The answer: Jews and those "backed by Jewish influence," who espouse
"Separatist bashing and belittling the Aryan" to "deceive the vast
majority of Adamic White Aryan people." According to the 11th Hour
Remnant, this conspiracy of Jews and their supporters, led by ADL,
uses terms such as "Bigotry" and "Racism" to "control and silence
the opposition to their harmful and repugnant ways." These evil
plotters supposedly use their "controlled media," their "controlled
politics" and their "controlled financial power" to "assure that
their agenda is carried out."
Story and Bertollini claim these malicious forces are trying "to
stomp out all Truth about who we people are that live in North Idaho"
and want to "mix the white race with other peoples by encouraging
multiculturalism, immigration, and relocation of these other peoples
to North Idaho." "The 11th Hour Remnant Messenger did not come to
North Idaho to stir up controversy," they write. "The profound depth
of controversy and confusion was here long before we came to North
In this letter, Story and Bertollini also describe the 11th Hour
Remnant Messenger in detail: its affiliations, its policies and
its goals. They emphasize that their group has "absolutely no connection
with any other group or groups or organizations whatsoever," perhaps
out of fear of being named in a large lawsuit against Aryan Nations
filed the previous month.1 Story and Bertollini assert
that they are not preaching in order to make money, stating that
they "accept no contributions or donations" and "do not charge"
for their work. They claim also not to want "followers." "We do
not proselyte [sic] anyone to our cause," they write. "We merely
want to make our kindred, the Adamic White Aryan race, aware of
our Lord, Savior, Redeemer and our God."
Towards the end of the letter, the two claim
that their mission is finished, their next assignment is "unknown,"
and they are "goin' fishin'!" "We have completed the primary mission
that we set out to accomplish," they write. "Our final mission was
to reveal the truth about who are the real Chosen of God (The
Remnant). Also, to warn the Chosen of God who are their real
enemies (The Jew). This has now been accomplished!" Yet Story
and Bertollini have continued their activities. Bertollini spoke
on behalf of Aryan Nations at a public forum on June 18, 1999, at
North Idaho College. Story was also in attendance. In addition,
Bertollini attended the July 10, 1999, Aryan Nations parade in Coeur
d'Alene, where he reportedly called Butler "the only man standing
up for the white race in America that I know of, and doing it in
a reasonable way."
