whiffs of Earl Browder Past

Unless the so-called health-care reforms presently proposed by President Obama are prevented, all talk of civil rights were an ugly farce in the tradition of Adolf Hitler’s Tiergarten-4.

Obama = Hitler.  Why, we even have the image of Obama with the mustache to work with!  A pretty awesome turn, albeit one to a spot he was in beforehand.  But who cares what Lyndon Larouche has to say, really?  I’m more interested in reading old Communist Party, USA pamphlets showing what Earl Browder had to say about things!

First of all, the question of literature to the masses.  In the first principle of Party defense that I spoke of — going to the masses — the most important role is played by mass literature.  We have made certain definite improvements in this respect in the last six months.  During this period, we have distributed more pamphlets than in any previous year in our Party’s history.
That is an improvement.  But can we say that this measures up to the possibilities of the situation, especially in the circulation of one-cent and two-cent pamphlets?  I think that in an historical moment in which the enemy is making Coummunism and the Communist Party the central issue in the life of the Country we must admit that with better organization of our work, we can multiply the present distribution of pamphlets, especially cheap pamphlets; for these mass popular pamphlets are precisely the sharpest weapons we have for influencing the masses and through the masses, the actual course of events in the history of our country and of the world.
This emphasis upon literature should not be taken to mean neglect of mass meetings.  Mass meetings become more important than ever, although through mass meetings we can never reach as broad a

But now I’m already a little bored of Earl Browder.  I’m having trouble with this one — was this hawked on street corners in the days of 1940?  Who would be interested in reading Earl Browder’s discussion of internal Communist Party, USA matters?  As opposed to, I suppose, his realignment on that thing which caused many a splinter in the Communist Party — The Finnish Question — which as Orwellian as this be, at least figures into actual world policy matters:

Well, we don’t need to go today into all the details of the gigantic conspiracy, this grandiose effort of the world bourgeoisie to turn its forces to the crushing of the Soviet Union.  Suffice it to say that all of these enormous efforts and these grandiose diabolical schemes come to wreck.  They come to wreck on the Bolshevik vigilance of the Soviet Worker, of their Party, and above all, of their great leader, our Lenin of today, Comrade Stalin.

As Comrade Foster mentioned in opening this meeting, the military news from Finland this morning indicates that the process of the liberation of the Finnish people from their forcibly imposed role of puppets for World Imperialism is well under way.  We can expect that it will not be long now when a free Finland will work out her own destiny in close friendship and collaboration with the Soviet Union.

Memoirs of assorted Communist members of the time tell of their befuddled confusion in accepting this tripe, a gasp of air that was not released until the line switched back to the struggle against Adolf Hitler and Fascism — where FDR was once again a hero.  But that’s neither here nor there.  Let’s ponder what’s now being pumped out of LPAC:

At this moment, the President and a selected cabal of his associates are conducting a series of meetings with such as select members of the U.S. Congress, in the attempt to ram such Hitler-like policies through as U.S. Federal statutes, before the generality of the population could be alerted to the intentional crimes against humanity being presently promoted from relevant circles inside the Obama administration.
Stop that horror while you can! Do not wait, as the German population did.

And to think, once upon a time they were using Obama campaign organizing websites for their own organizational tool.  I suppose those days are over.  AND… Can somebody do me a favor and look through the 200-some comments here and see if a “Laroucheistruth” or a (smirk) “Alexandar Hamilton” pops in for a spell?

Anyway….  It is a bit interesting that the Larouchies, as shown in their continued wikipedia edit attempts, are hanging their hat on supposed reverence found in Russia, attempting to keep in the lede a “Validator” of Stanislav Menshikov.   I suppose you’d want to know that the wikipedia editing confuberation over Stanislav_Menshikov continues apace.  Judging by the voting, it appears that this Stanislav Menshikov article will be kept, meaning not a whole awful lot for me, and only this for the Larouchian editors at wikipedia:

Here’s my two cents: The Heritage Foundation comment seems fairly representative of commentary about LaRouche in the US, while the Menshikov comment seems representative of (especially recent) commentary about LaRouche elsewhere, especially in Russia where his fans seem to have more access to media organs. —Leatherstocking (talk) 16:03, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

“Huge in Russia”, which for the LYM and Boomer faitful is what they’re going to hang their hat on to make up for not being Huge in the USA — or, I guess, for being hidden by the Dutch — Anglo Elites.  Remind me to go back to the news database, look up the “BBC Monitoring Service” for media of former Soviet countries (including Russia), and check to see if there is any mention of Larouche was not then dutifully re-reported by the LPAC clattering keyboardists.  IE:  That’s about the extent of “influence” in Russia — Menshikov, references in regards to Georgia — and most surreally, that recent LPAC release reporting on Russian Blog Coverage.
At least with Earl Browder, his movement was indeed Huge in Russia — and was indeed politically squashed in the USA. 

Incidentally, as the LYMers adjust to their new line, I need to point out how off this item is:

Avoid Lyndon LaRouche the same way you would avoid a cliche, or the plague. While the rumors that he’s a ‘fascist’ may be false, the rumors that quoting LaRouche will help you score with chicks are definitely not true.

We’ve already established that the Larouchies are an Anti-Sex Cult, so these rumors are null and void, and indeed that blog post will now be used as a Recruitment Tool.

(In other news:  I once upon a time linked to this blog, which was a new blog set up by the leader of the “Larouche Cryonics Movement.”  It appears he’s made it a Private Party.   Go figure.  I don’t know how he’s going to increase the size of his movement that way, but to each their own.)

And from Dennis King’s website:
And this first edition of Dope, Inc. in which the infamous Protocols forgery is described as the authentic minutes of a Paris “Order of Zion” meeting, is today being promoted on the website of the LaRouche Youth Movement, a cadre formation founded circa 2001 that is recruiting aggressively on college campuses throughout the United States with little opposition from Hillel or anyone else.
Hillel I never heard of until I googled just now — okay, it’s a Campus Jewish Group.  But, for what it’s worth, a Socialist Group picketed and pamphletered the recent Connecticut collge professor Norton Mezvinsky sponsored speaking engagement.  I can’t say I’m terribly impressed, but I’m not sure what to be impressed by.

    On the GM deal:
    LaRouche added, for emphasis, “You bail out the people who worked, not the stinkers who caused the collapse. The way this administration is handling General Motors is a perfect example of why they must be stopped, because they are acting like a bunch of fascists. They are rewarding the sexual perverts who caused the collapse, and sticking the people with the bill.”

    Sexual perverts? Did I miss something? At least the Hitler comparisons are something of a lineral progression.

    Lyn thinks everyone is a sexual pervert. He has accused virtually every one of his army of “enemies” of being a pederast, a pedophile, a homosexual, a sodomite, a catamite, a bestialist….. YAWN

    Having known Lyn for, hmm, almost 40 years, I think I can say authoritatively that what we have here is a severe case of projection.

    Or, if that’s uncharitabe, a severe case of Lyn-not-being-able-to-get-his-mind-off-everyone-else’s-sexuality, an extremely disheartening prospect.

    Yes, I realize the “refrigerator magnet poetry” nature of moving these words about, slicing it to new enemies. But I’m still a little puzzled by the supposed audience who’d nod in describing GM managers — it’s just kind of disconnected not even so much with reality, but with fantacies of fantacists. (With, say, Bush, at least it can sort of tap into the Bohemian Grove bit — I guess?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPb-PN9F2Pc .)

    But I may be giving it too much credit or thought. For instance, back to what I just referred to as the at least somewhat more sensical and standard “Hitler” line, today we get from LPAC news of this:


    Rosenblatt continued: “I have two questions. First, Ms. Romer, will you denounce your policy as Nazi, genocide, and fascist? Second, will you call for the immediate firing of Summers, Geithner and Orszag, the authors of the plan?”

    Odd little stunt. I’d think the answer is “no” to the question “Will you call your plan Nazi?” Actually, short of the Nazi’s, I’d think just about everyone is not going to denounce their plan as Nazi, and in the Nazi’s case it wouldn’t be denouncing.

    In other tidbits, Helmet’s post may have guided us to an explanation for the whereabouts of revenire:

    Anyone who believes that Tony Blair is a Christian, has to be Satanic or incredibly stupid, because his behavior on theology and politics is that of a Satanic figure,” Lyndon LaRouche said today after being briefed on the role of Tony Blair’s former national health advisor (1997-2004), Simon Stevens, in defining the Obama Nazi health policy.

    Tony Blair is Satanic. But I thought we already established that and exposed that in the “Children of Satan” trilogy? There is no need to tie his Satanism to the Obama Nazi Health Policy, unless this is a further expression of his Satanism. People who deny Tony Blair’s Satanism are also Satanic. I don’t quite follow that. As the current Labor Party topples due to Corruption problems and life goes on, I’m a little curious who is paying much mind to Tony Blair right now. Which means I don’t see who is paying enough mind to deny Tony Blair’s Satanism.

    Also, who is it that briefed Lyndon Larouche, and from where is he speaking? Would I be much impressed by the biggness of the name of the briefer?

  5. rachel holmes Says:

    I think the team of J&J–Jeff and John, who can be seen on “LPAC-TV” as Jeff Steinberg and John Hoefle–are doing the briefing.

    With a possible role for the well-known Dr. Debra Hanania Freeman and Harley Schlanger, LaRouche’s East Coast/West Coast “political spokesmen.”

    Maybe Marcia Merry Pepper Baker from the old Economics sector is helping out.

    So, no, I don’t think you would be impressed by the bigness of the name(s), but you might be depressed by watching two of the top briefers in action at http://www.larouchepac.com/lpactv?nid=10475

    In other words, Eek.
