The answer is....

E. JOHN AMERY

Introduction
John Amery's Proclamation of the Legion of St. George is shown below. The use of capital letters is taken from the original leaflet.

The Statement
BRITISH NATIONAL REPRESENTATION

PROCLAMATION TO ALL BRITISH SUBJECTS INTERNED

FELLOW COUNTRYMEN:

150,000 of our fellow countrymen are in prison in the home country, because they have declared themselves against this fratricidal war. In violation of the Habeas Corpus Act and the fundamental laws of our constitution these men have never been brought to trail or even allowed to see a lawyer.

American troops have not only occupied Ulster but are arriving in increasing numbers in England.

Naval bases and Colonies have been handed over to Mr. Roosevelt's administration.

BEYOND ALL THIS

This war has ceased to be a war of nations but has become a war of

CONCEPTION

Europe and out country, your wives and children at home are menaced by the invasion of the HORDES OF BOLSHEVIK BARBARITY.

For this reason I have approached the German Government with the proposal to form

A BRITISH LEGION AGAINST BOLSHEVISM, to be known as the LEGION OF ST. GEORGE.

I appeal to all Britishers to answer this call to arms for the defence of all the principles that we Englishmen have been the first to proclaim in the world.

THE DEFENCE OF OUR HOMES, OF OUR CHILDREN AND OF ALL CIVILISATION AGAINST THE DRAGON OF ASIATIC AND JEWISH BESTIALITY.

The St. George Legion will fight only against the Communists and on NO OTHER FRONT!

All men will commence in their present rank and promotion will be open to all men alike, without any distinctions or qualifications, political or otherwise.

Within the limits of the military possibilities the Legion of St. George will fight at the junction of the German-Finish front, beside the troops of the undaunted liberty loving Finish people.

The British Representation in Berlin formally guarantee to all ranks: A PERMANENT WELL PLACED JOB IN THE BRITISH ADMINISTRATION OR A PRIORITY IN ANY OTHER EMPLOYMENT THEY SHOULD DESIRE ONCE PEACE IS SIGNED, OR THE POSSIBILITY TO FORM THE ELITE IN THE NEW BRITISH ARMY.

Hundreds of soldiers have volunteered to join this Legion.

Men who have escaped to England have come to join us.

Three Royal Air Force aeroplanes have come over to us so far with their arms and equipment.

It is up to you civilians to give a hand to show that we intend to take our responsibilities to maintain THE INTEGRITY OF OUR EMPIRE, by giving the world proof that we have not all sold out to the JEW or PLUTOCRAT.

I ASK YOU TO OPT NATIONAL

The British Representative which is a 100% British organisation will take no steps whatever of intimidation against the persons who do not opt, BUT fellow countrymen the world is watching us, EUROPE EXPECTS THAT EVERY CIVILISED MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY, National England desires that you will show yourselves worthy of Nelson's immortal signal:

"ENGLAND EXPECTS THIS DAY EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY"

Your place is with us Nationalists ... Your duty is to opt NATIONAL under the glorious banner of St. George we are going to write a new page in the History of the British Empire: more, WE SHALL SAVE THE BRITISH EMPIRE FROM COMMUNISM AND AMERICAN RAPACITY.

We shall show the world that free Englishmen:

NEVER, NEVER WILL BE THE SLAVES OF A JEWISH PLUTOCRATIC TYRANNY, THAT WE ARE WORTHY DESCENDANTS OF THE YEOMAN THAT DICTATED THE MAGNA CHARTA.

Pay no attention to waverings or opposition: the first to opt will be the examples of bravery and courage to those that now waver or are against us but who will have to join us one day when they realise all the truth.

In these fatal days when we are before the bar of civilisation: I beg, I demand, that you put aside all hesitations, all the prejudice, all the lies that have led you where you are ... that you take this IMMENSE OPPORTUNITY THAT I HAVE OBTAINED AND WITH ME, WITH ALL THOSE THAT HAVE ALREADY JOINED.

YOU WILL OPT NATIONAL ... FOR ENGLAND AND ST. GEORGE!

PARIS 20 APRIL 1943.

John AMERY.

(John Amery was captured by Italian Partisans at the end of April 1945. He had been held in British Military Custody since May 1945.

He arrived back in this country on 7 July 1945. He was committed at Bow Street Magistrates Court on 9 July 1945 charged with eight counts of High Treason.

He was remanded to Brixton Prison to await his trial at the Old Bailey. When Amery's trial opened on 28 November 1945, before Mr. Justice Humphreys, Amery pleaded guilty to eight counts of high treason.

Once the judge had satisfied himself that Amery knew the consequences of his actions, he sentenced Amery to death by hanging.

John Amery was hanged on 19th December, 1945.)

I was sure it was either Kitamoto, Muller or Goebbels. Using my best local history lessons (from the only paper that cares about Bainbridge) I was further drawn to Kitamoto as the regular town-cryer of this sentiment. Then I remembered bad history from Muller and then I remembered something about concentration camps and Goebbels came to mind. In the end I had to call it a three-way tie.

Japanese-Americans HATE America and Americans.

That's a bit extreme, Bacca (or do you mean Baka).

Not all Japanese Americans today hate America and Americans, just the kooky ones.

The reparations movement has brought many of the kooky ones out of the woodwork.

Yeah thanks, too much Latin in school. You’re right, I am wrong, not all Japanese Americans hate America. But what’s left of the Nisei seem to. And the Sansei, Yonsei, Gosei are just plain idiotic to pick up this torch and carry it. “They put my granny in a concentration camp” “How dare America” “Now I hate America!” Christ, 60 years later. Get a life!!!

But it amazes me, because they aren’t or I don’t think many Japanese Americans consider themselves as real Americans any way. Am I wrong? What kind of American would do half the things the JA’s are doing with bashing America, rebuilding camps, educations programs that explain half-truths and are maliciously distorted truths! What kind of Japanese American would let this happen? I don’t want my children exposed to these people and the lies that will be taught from them. And they aren’t Japanese either because Japanese nationals really don’t want anything to do with them. Can you blame them? This whole “Legacy of Whiners” that they are promoting disgusts most Japanese Nationals.

What is the legacy of Japanese Americans to America? If you really look into the war record of the 442nd, most came into the war after all the hard work was done. The 100th got their ass kicked in every battle they fought, BUT they fought with honor and courage because they were the first to go (ALL VOLUNTEERS!!!) when they were needed and not after 2-3 years DRAFTED into the war. The 100th wanted to fight! The 100th were made of mainly Hawaiian JA's. They are the real JA heroes. Legacy? Washington, Oregon and my California JA's? Legacy? The medal of honor recipients after 50 years is plain bull. Not that these men shouldn’t be recognized for their sacrifices but if this is the case, there are most likely another 20,000 of other American soldiers who are deserving of the same honor. Why didn’t the JA’s look into that?

Now, with the National Park Service fixing up the old camps is a total waste of good taxpayer money. Who the hell is going to visit them? A handful of Minidokians once a year? I am offended. Plus, this Bainbridge memorial to what? Internment. Yes, many didn’t deserve it. Too bad I guess, but it happened to Germans and Italians also and the JA's could care less. My Grandfather was on a watch list because he was German. The watch list was published. He was shamed in his city where he lived to his dying day, but he didn’t hold a grudge. I’m not crying about it. Legacy of what? A bunch of whiners. Cry babies. Legacy? Where is the honor of whiners and crybabies? Half of the JA's who sit around getting their smug pictures taken at these meetings and Day of what! Remembrance! CRAP! - weren't more than 6 or 7 years of age when they were in the camps. These people are nothing but haters crying for attention because they are plainly board with their lives. Or they LOVE the attention. They prostitute or sell out America for their selfish deceitful desires. I think the real reason their parents didn't talk much about the camps more is because they were or they knew others where guilty of a lot of espionage, brain washing of the Emperor in their schools (exactly what seems the Muslims are doing today) and they couldn’t be trusted as American citizens, and they knew it! You think I am a hater of JA’s? I don’t really hate them but it sickens me what they are doing and they crappy legacy they are leaving with these memorials and camps. Three cheers for the whiners and haters of America- Banzai! Banzai! Banzai!

I think like Los Angeles, Seattle must have a community leader or two and I know they have a valid Medal of Honor recipient that would be my choice for a statue in Bainbridge for everyone to think a good thought, to be proud of the Japanese Americans who did something besides moan and groan, but most of the JA internment memorials are worthless. The one in Portland, I hear, is nothing but a druggy hang out. Hey, there you go Bainbridge, a place where people can shot-up. Way to go.

In Los Angeles, we have a great 100th/442nd statue plus an awesome statue of the first Japanese American Astronaut, Ellison Onizuka. These are what I like to see and what I want my children to learn about some good Americans.



Okay, Baka

Thanks for posting, Bacca.

Shonin Yamashita from California also spoke out against how the ethnic activists were successfully falsifying this history.

After Shonin died, his aging widow was banned moving into the ethnic Japanese nursing home (same as the Seattle Keiro Nursing Home)because of Shonin's opposition to the Japanese American reparations activists.

People are too apathetic or too afraid to speak out against these people. At least this site provides a venue for people to speak their minds.

Thanks again for doing so. I totally agree with you.
