More Meetings, New Outreach and an Emergency
We're Being Forced To Move, and We Need Your Help
News from the Institute for Historical Review
Dear Friend,We're facing an emergency. Our landlord has told us that he won't renew our lease, which meansthat we'll have to move out of our offices by the end of June. We're not sure why, but we know that inrecent months militant Zionist and "anti-fascist" groups such as the "Jewish Defense Organization"have been targeting him and publicizing his tie to us as a tenant.We're one of the few dissident groups in the US with an office and space to hold meetings. Duringthe months we've been here, we've made very good use of this by organizing many more meetingsthan ever before. And that's enabled us to build an unprecedented level of local support.Several local friends of the IHR have already volunteered to help with the strenuous and time-consuming work of moving furniture, books and equipment, and setting everything up again in a newlocation.But we also need money. We'd especially welcome generous backing from a well-to-do supporter that would enable us to make a down payment on an office-warehouse property we would own,thereby shielding us from future landlord problems.
Another Successful Meeting
About 40 men and women, including a good showing of younger people and local activists,gathered on Saturday evening, March 12, for one of the most spirited and successful IHR meetingsin months. At this upbeat event here in Orange County, southern California, Paul Fromm and Idelivered informed, well-received talks about America's social-political decline, and the factorsbehind this trend.(A full report isposted on our website. )A businessman who had brought along some younger friends wrote to me afterwards: "We mustcontinue to build a future for the IHR and bring a new generation into the fold. I will continue to do justthat. Your speech was fantastic. The three 18-year-olds had never heard anything like it. Your voiceis one that they heard clearly, and I appreciate you very much my friend. We are just beginning,Mark!"In my address, I spoke about how America has changed drastically over the past 60 years, asreflected in the country's high school history textbooks. In the US, as elsewhere, history textbooksboth mirror and help to shape the people's outlook and thinking, as well as reflect and strengthen thecountry's "national narrative" of its past.America's self-image as a white, European nation was methodically discarded during the "culturalrevolution" of the 1960s. Drastically re-written history textbooks were introduced that promoted anew vision of the US as a universalist multicultural, multiracial society.If the history of the twentieth century teaches anything, I said, it's that ethnic cohesion and unity arecharacteristic features of stable, orderly and prosperous societies. The often-repeated notion that"diversity is our strength" is a lie. In that regard I noted the orderly and law-abiding behavior of theethnically cohesive Japanese in the wake of the recent flooding and destruction of their homeland,and I contrasted that with the chaos, looting and pillage in New Orleans in the aftermath of the 2005Katrina hurricane.
