Evidence of Disloyalty of American-Born Japanese

Auburn, WA: Remember Pearl Harbor League, 1945.

First Edition. 24 pp, 4 x 9 inches, stapled wrappers. Light toning to edges; near fine. The Remember Pearl Harbor League was one of the most prominent anti-Japanese groups operating in Seattle after World War II, primarily in protest to the resettlement of the Japanese and Japanese-Americans released from internment camps. Here they attempt to demonstrate the disloyalty of Japanese Americans while claiming that "racial prejudice and industrial competition do not enter into the question." Asserting that (among other problems) the Shinto religion is a "cult of loyalty and a religion of patriotism" and that secret Japanese societies within the United States provided aid to the Japanese military during the war, the pamphlet concludes that "on the sole ground of disloyalty, all Japanese should be removed from the United States and its territories."
