Name Calling (part 2): The case of President Obama
Lyndon LaRouche describes himself for the moment as a kind of "protector", and supporter, of US president Barack Obama. But this support is a fake. LaRouche supports no one else but himself.
Les than a year ago Obama was described by LaRouche as an agent, a monkey, a leader of a kind of "Hitler Youth". He was described in the typical way LaRouche usually describes an opponent, by calling him all kinds of bad names, and associating him to just about everything evil.
Read some of these quotes and ask yourself if you REALLY think LaRouche supports Obama, as he claims today?
"Now, I saw that in Germany: in Hitler Germany. It's exactly that. There's no distinction between the mechanism of the Obama movement and the Hitler movement--none! Because the essential thing is not the particular prejudices you have. What functions is the way you think. In a human being, it's the way you think that's important, it's not necessarily what you think. Because it's the way you think that will lead you, ultimately to what you will think. And the Obama movement is a fascist movement--by any historical standard. And you get an intimidation of people, who respond to what? They respond to a sense that there's nobody in society, in political power, who's doing a goddamned thing, about saving this nation, and its people. So people say, "You've got to go along, to get along. Don't try to change the rules, adapt to them." Go with the majority popular opinion, even if it's stupid. I mean: Obama is a racist. I mean, with an African father--he wasn't much of an African father, but was an African father of Kenya. He was part of a British operation, which took over Kenya, through MI5's operation. But this guy was away from Kenya, and he married a Margaret Mead type, a woman who had a number of successive husbands, like Margaret Mead did. Went out to the poor, brown people, in Asia, and had sex with them! It was called "Coming in Samoa." [groans, laughter] And she wore through a number of successive husbands, and by them, had various children. And therefore, you'll find Obama's ancestry, if you chase his family tree, everybody's climbing and swinging from the branches there--from all over the world! All parts of the world! This guy is the universal man. Every monkey in every tree, from every part of the world, has participated in the sexual act of producing him. And he works for organized crime--which is a branch of British intelligence.
/Internal memo for Morning Briefing, April 12 2008.
"You can't have a dreamworld presumption that in some miraculous way, you're going to get Barack Obama to be reasonable. He's not been trained to be reasonable; his owners won't let him be reasonable. And he's never done anything reasonable so far, in his entire campaign, which means anything for the interests of the people of the United States. He's a babbler. He's a puppet.
So, what's the purpose, on the one hand, knowing that you will never get anything good out of Obama? Don't marry a lizard. You may like the lizard, but you're not going to have children."
/Webcast, July 22, 2008.
"Yet, even under the best choice of setting, for them to attempt to illuminate Senator Obama would have been an experience like lecturing a wooden dummy. Obama just doesn't get it, and probably never will. There were already too many dummies in the field of making of economic policy, even before Obama turned up. Consider, for example, many among the members of the Congress and also today's so-called financial specialists.
I do not wish to immerse us in further speculation on the subject of Senator Obama's mental health here. I merely emphasize that as being the key to understanding the most essential features of the utter emotional and intellectual incompetence of "Buppie-and-Boomer" choice, Senator Obama, to serve as a Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, let alone actually become the public menace he would be as President of these United States."

"Under no circumstances could I support the candidacy of Barack Obama for nomination or election to be the President of the United States. The issue is not only the massively undemocratic display of sheer thuggery and of vast financial support for a kind of corruption which threatens the constitutional sovereignty of the U.S.A. The effect of his nomination would also be a threat to the continued existence of our constitutional republic, and also to the hope of defense of civilization world-wide.
Our republic has made bad choices of President in the past, but none of these was as grave a threat to civilization as the prospect of Obama's election would mean under the circumstances of an onrushing general economic-breakdown crisis of the planet as a whole. Given the present circumstances in the world at large, Obama's nomination would be a tragedy for the Democratic Party and our republic; worse, his election would be a virtual act of national suicide."

The above mentioned quotes about Obama are typical for LaRouche. He does this all the time. His opponents, and the persons that he has choosen to be the enemies that the organization will make campaigns against, are ridiculed, slandered and dehumanized. This is a typical method of a CULT or a TOTALITARIAN group. And that is a fact! All totalitarian, and FASCIST, groups has used similar methods of namecalling, from the naziregime of Hitler and Goebbels. to Mussolini, to Franco, to Kim Il Sung, to Stalin and Mao.
Lets take a quick look at the LaRouche website to see whom else he has called monkey or ape! (Use the search function in the browser, and search for monkey, or ape.)
George Bush: http://www.larouchepub.com/lar/2003/...iscussion.html ( "How does society go from a species of George Bush-like monkeys with about three million potential on this planet—I mean that wouldn't even get him elected, would it? [laughter]—to a level of over six billion today?" )
Look also at this example where Gore is called so many bad names that it is quite disgusting: a disease, a monkey, a babylonian oligarch, a sick man, a racist, bipolar, etc... However, he is not called a monkey... in this particular speech! http://www.larouchepub.com/lar/2007/...e_babylon.html
I am a former member of the LaRouchemovement (ICLC) in Europe. I was active from 1988 to 2003/2004. Here I write to expose the totalitarian political cult that Lyndon LaRouche has created. I choose to call LaRouche the Lycurgus of this century, to show his real nature!

A have a second blog, a "twin-blog" of this blog, where I post things I find on the internet, that could be useful. http://larouchesources.blogspot.com If you go there and look at the sidebar to the right there is a collection of posts on LYM, the LaRouche Youthmovement, by former LYM members, by former members of the organization and by parents and observers!
Typical LaRouchian propaganda about the coming armageddon!
What would some of the greatest minds in history have said about LaRouche?
Read it for yourself below this picture!
Without Freedom of Thought there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as Public Liberty, without Freedom of Speech.
/Benjamin Franklin, writing as Silence Dogood, No. 8, 1722
A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one.
Half a truth is often a great lie.
He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
He that speaks much, is much mistaken.
He who falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
Hear reason, or she'll make you feel her.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.
Liberty once lost is lost forever.
/John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, 1775
If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave.
/John Adams, Rights of the Colonists, 1772
Here comes the orator! With his flood of words, and his drop of reason.
/Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanack
Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.
/Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
Against stupidity the very gods themselves contend in vain.
The tyrant does not believe in God, he believes that he is God!
Tyrants have big mouths and small hearts!
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
/Martin Luther King, Jr.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
/Martin Luther King, Jr.
Contempt for happiness is usually contempt for other people's happiness, and is an elegant disguise for hatred of the human race.
Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.
Hatred is something peculiar. You will always find it strongest and most violent where there is the lowest degree of culture.
/Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Love, friendship and respect do not unite people as much as a common hatred for something.
Technology without hatred can be a blessing. Technology with hatred is always a disaster.
Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.
