The Ideology of Hate
In September 1998, envelopes from the 11th Hour Remnant Messenger
were mailed to approximately 9,000 Idaho addresses.
These envelopes contained an introductory letter, an anti-Semitic
booklet and a poster explaining the group's Identity beliefs.
Measuring 6 feet by 3 feet, the full-color Identity poster, titled
The Adamic Race: Adam's Pure Blood Seedline, is one of the
most professional pieces of white supremacist propaganda in recent
memory. Bertollini has said that the posters cost $9.45 each to
print, fold and mail. The poster traces the activities of "Adam's
Pure Blood Seedline" (the descendants of God, from Adam through
Jesus to the "Aryan" people) and "Satan's Chosen People" (the descendants
of Satan, from Cain through Esau to "Jewry") over the course of
more than 6,000 years. Alongside the illustrated chart is the text
of Bible passages Story and Bertollini use to support their claims.
According to the 11th Hour Remnant Messenger, "blacks, orientals,
and other races," unlike "Aryans," do not have souls. These "Pre-Adamic"
people intermarried with the Jews, producing "a mongrel, hybrid,
a non-race." Meanwhile, most of the "Aryan" people, who Story and
Bertollini believe are "God's Chosen People" as described in the
Bible, migrated from the Middle East to "Central and Western Europe"
and finally to America.
Story and Bertollini believe that America has become a "dictatorship,"
enslaved to "Jewish Communism." They predict that there will be
a third World War, followed by the migration of the "White race"
from America to Israel. Eventually, "The War of All Wars!" between
the "White" race and the Jewish, Satanic "non-race" will lead to
"Armageddon," or World War IV, resulting in the victory of the "White"
race and the unending reign of Jesus Christ over his "White" people.
The booklet accompanying the poster, titled The Hidden Tyranny:
The Issue That Dwarfs All Other Issues (or The Rosenthal
Document), is a popular item among anti-Semites. The booklet
is listed in the book catalogs at the Aryan Nations and Weisman
Publications Web sites, and the text of the document can be found
at the site for Bible Believers, an Australian Identity ministry.
For Story and Bertollini, The Hidden Tyranny proves, using
a Jew's "own words," that the Jews are exactly as the Seedline
poster describes them: the people of Satan, who are out to dominate
God's people, the Christians. First published by the late anti-Semite
Walter White Jr., The Hidden Tyranny resembles The Protocols
of the Elders of Zion in that it is a fabricated document, masquerading
as fact, which claims special knowledge of a Jewish plot to control
the world. Though White alleged that the booklet contains his interview
with Harold Rosenthal, a 29-year-old, Jewish administrative assistant
to the U.S. Senator Jacob Javits, the contents of The Hidden
Tyranny are actually a product of White's imagination. White
failed to explain why he would wait to first publish the booklet
until 1978, years after he had "spoken" with Rosenthal, who was
killed by terrorists in 1976.
