*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***
(Reprinted to Blog from email list on 12/18/04)
Looking back on the past year, 2004 has been an eventful one. From a rough start, we have put over 2500 copies of Why Johnny Can’t Think into circulation. While that isn’t a lot by publishing standards, it is quite an accomplishment for a small team of volunteers who didn’t know what they were doing. All of this is due to the efforts of WOL readers and my small team, and we haven’t begun, so to speak.
The internet has enabled many small operators to bubble up ideas that are beginning to crack the ice of the government/media monolith. The growing attempts to silence the BNP, Ernst Zundel, and others are signs of weakness. The establishment KNOWS these ideas are LETHAL to them. Why else would they be so concerned about the very small handful of people out there who are saying these things?
I’ve pointed out the many ways that Why Johnny Can’t Think is an ideal vehicle for attacking the left. None of them have to do with my own brilliance. I chose to focus on professors and the universities because they are the Achilles heel of the left. They are the root that keeps the malignant plant alive.
Not many people can or will go to cocktail parties and talk about “Jews” or “communists” because they don’t want to be treated like nuts. They don’t want to start conversations about the disaster in Iraq because some flag waving moron might clock them. They don’t want to talk about immigration because some bedwetter will start pissing and moaning or someone there has a Mexican girlfriend. But almost EVERYONE has friends or family tying up thousands of dollars in a college education.
It is much easier to inoculate a kid before college than to cure him after it. College professors can bully kids, but aren’t used to dealing with real criticism.
One of our next goals is to put together a scholarship contest for high school kids that will get the message to them. Not only will we get the message out to them, but we may discover the next generation of warriors to carry on the battle.
If anyone is interested in helping fund such a program, please let me know. I’m working with a non-profit organization to be able to take tax-deductible contributions for this program. If anyone is willing to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And don’t forget, there is still time to send a book to someone you care about before Christmas.
