On November 16, 2009, Lyndon Larouche unveiled a big speech — published on the 18th — entitled “Brainwashed”. The opening long-winded sentence:
For those among us with any significant experience with commonplace instances of victims of what is called “brainwashing,” there should have been nothing surprising in the fact that certain former associates of a political association, who had spent as much as decades of their life briefly either in or long-since departed from of that association, should have been changed, by what is appropriately called “brainwashing,” into a decades-long obsession with hatred against me, not for any actual reason of what I might have done to them, but for what they, seemingly without rational intent, attempted to do on behalf of those well-known enemies of mine on which they had come to depend for the fears which controlled a crucial aspect of their personal mental life.
This was part and parcel of an Internal Dilligence campaign: the topic of brainwashing pestered into the cult’s internal and external literature — all of society and all of culture are brainwashed. One key sign of the brainwashing: everyone who knows anything about Larouche thinks he’s nuts. It resulted in the membership mindset that resulted in this odd little comment.:
LaRoucheisright said at 11:36 pm on November 24th, 2009:
Cocondeck: LaRouche is leading the fight. So call it what you want. I think anyone who knows about LaRouche and isn’t supporting him at this point is brainwashed, so right back at ya dumb a$$.
An interesting thing about the Holidays and the Larouche org is that in recent years, the org has encouraged, or not discouraged, the LYM membership to touch base with their families, and visit them. Never mind that the young recruits get an earful in being initiated about getting themselves off of “Mother’s Milk”. Visit mom and dad, and they just might help defray the costs which encure in their mass deployments.
This “Brainwashing” alerting and warning campaign is a means to innoculate them from the hazards of stepping outside the cult’s bubble.
It’s also worth noting the internal and external literature has been packed with ralings against the members who are doubting in the predictive power of Larouche, coming after the forecast that October 12 would be the Day the world Descends into Armegeddon. As per usual, the line has shifted to “phase shift”, an allowance to wait the next item of Economic Bad News — which, I gather, they’ll take Dubai for all it’s worth. What of October 12? Throw it in the bin with all the Octobers in the past 40 or 50 years.
But this berating of the Doubters in the midst does solve and innoculate another problem with the Thanksgiving Dinner stand by. If I didn’t know that others were doing such a thing, I might just have to suck it up and survey the past few months of the LYM Basement Team’s presentations, available on youtube as well lpac itself, and see who doesn’t show up after Thanksgiving. This is common practice, apparently, and a list of people who are “no longer with us” will be read after some Daily Briefing this week when it becomes apparent so and so has not returned.
Another thing you might watch, if so inclined, is to see if some of these LYM presenters have on a new suit. This would demonstrate something along the lines of nerve wreck mom and dad wanting to help their wayward children out, but not wanting the horror of having their money wander through this cult.
The members coming back after Thanksgiving (the majority, I gather) will be rushed head-long back into World Historic Purposes. A new Historic webcast, the eleventh of the year, is scheduled — either this week or next, I am not sure. Whether the Larouchies are or are not a part of the TeaParty Movement (ideological and cause parasites) depends of definitions (and only the most telegenic Hitler Mustache posters are theirs) — and I guess the Larouchie celebre who descended from the morass is running for Congress. Anyway, the Larouchies have disclaimed this ballast, and gone on to other pastures. A lone Hitler Mustache holder floats into an “End the Fed” rally. That’s one part of the Mass strike. As well they will, in their minds, take over “We Are Change” — by putting their hastling of Al Gore into the historic lineage that brought us the Larouchies hastlings of Henry Kissinger. They and the org’s calling out of the “Nazi Policies” “Worse than Hitler” are responsible for Obama’s approval rating falling to 49 percent, “The Incredibly Shrinking Obama Presidency”. (Point of order: every president since Johnson has had a period of time when their rating fell into the 30s. Kennedy probably would have landed there in his second term sans his assassination, leaving the string to have skipped just Eisenhower in going back to Truman. And every one of these presidents has had a period of time when their ratings were in the 70s — though, I’ll need to check on that one.) AND … cue calls of Bush Double standard for this writer’s concern in one… well, actually just one.
For those looking to see if old faces disappear, and if old faces are wearing new clothes… a quick peek see at the comments section of the youtube “Basement” productions… one clipped to this blog.
Tell obama to go fuck himself!!!!!!!!!!! You are an excellent newscaster!! Keep it up, very informative
A veritable Edward R Murrow. And here’s an incoherent epithet –the word “Boomer”:
Boomer? what’s that now? Is that bad how? —
And how about some of that Wit they pick up in the org?
“So what’s the difference between Obama’s face and his asshole? Well, when the same thing comes out of both ends, who can tell?”

Your very survival is hanging on the balance and yr winging about what you perceive as inappropriate language…REALLY!
Two other depositories of dumping– “The People’s Voice“, which we’ve seen before. And Thom Hartmann’s website, weirdly coincidental in that I mentioned him once in relation to uses of Russian media outlets.
