Sometime ago, somebody or other referred to a particular negative political ad as a “New Low”. The ad was a take-off of Lyndon Johnson’s “Daisy” ad, which made me wonder — “How can this be a new low if it’s been done before?”
I tend to view these comments from Noam Chomsky in the same way. He has never seen anything like this before. And we’re lucky previous charismatic figures that this nation has gone over, in similar circumstances as today, during his lifetime, were all crooks sowing the seeds of their own downfall. He negates himself.
Cripes! The Birther Phenomenon isn’t even new. Warren Harding was accused of being a “negro”, and Franklin Roosevelt was a Jew named “Rosenbaum”!
Anyway, it looks like Obama survived Larouche’s stupid Assassination dread.
Then again, what is this fantasy?
The crash of the world system is a fait accompli, and the European events are just playing out with a desperate denial for the moment. It’s the same kind of thing as Weimar: it’s a denial of reality, because they’re afraid to face reality.
It points up the extent of our responsibility. “We have to be the strong people,” LaRouche said. “There are no others available.”
(If I could get find with any ease the “Larouche with a Hitler Mustache image”, I’d link to it right here. The best I can do right now is this.)
I posted that last link in part because I am having trouble finding something from Howie G’s constellation of blogs this week. A reference to Noam Chomsky. A reference to the “Tea Party”. Most importantly, a reference to Alex Jones. So we almost have something of a Larouchie response to the recent “Jones – Tarpley – Larouche infiltrating the Scene” commentary from Kincaid and Deweese.
In consideration of the “Tea Party”. An interesting “Moment Of Truth” has just come upon us. Immigration! And with that the “Reason Magazine” someones depart, and we find out that the “Tea Party” means different things to different constituents. A bit more mixed, I would think, is the “Daily Paul” blog — and the comments there show considerable division.
Last week, I made note of Larouchie signs being kicked out of a Tea Party event (I can link there because it’s at the top_ — perhaps a bit sympathetic people kicked out — well.
You’ve lost your “Tea Party”. Or some of them, at least.
Obama as a Joker — incidentally — while it originated with this artist (who disdains the “Socialism” that was affixed to the image), it was popularized in part by Alex Jones — and really, you can see how. Interesting to note — two images that accompany this Maccleans article in its print edition: the “Obama Joker” thing and the Obama with a Hitler Mustache — and the “larouchepac” url wasn’t even clipped out! The National Review blog, meanwhile, snubbed Larouche by citing the “Obama as Heath Ledger” instead of Obama with a Hitler Mustache in their cry of unfair double standards and unfair focus on inflammatory signs.
Somewhere within the scope of Tea Party History (or perhaps “Pre-History”, if you affix its origins to when Freedom Works effectively bought it out), was the Ron Paul “Money-bomb”, evoked by “V for Vendetta” and its reference to Guy Fawkes. “Remember the Fifth of November” — donate money on that day. The Republican Party has carved it out (and the Time blogger has left out the film’s source material).
A round about trigger back to Alex Jones. Confused though he may be.
Okay, so Howie G is no longer giving me a back-ways reference to the mainstreaming of Alex Jones. He does give us some good little ret-conning.
Chator: According to LPAC, the next EIR, will feature a piece of historical revisionism which centers around LaRouche’s SDI proposal, as the missed opportunity from the 70s and 80s that has lead to the present nightmare. Yes, I did find it a bit odd that in the latest DWTT campaign show, Matt and Leandra dug up an “old school” LaRouche campaign video to make the point that the world has been sliding downhill since the Reagan administration axed “Lyn’s” SDI proposal in the mid-80s, which you can hear him calling “my baby”. I remember in the late nineties, it was JFK’s assassination that was responsible for the present mudslide into economic disintegration. I guess that theory wasn’t appealing enough to the space-obsessed, LaRouche geeks in LYM. So Lyn has thrown them another bone.
Blegh. Another bit of Historical Re-invention:
4. Finally, although this is 10 days old, mark it down: On April 13, 2010, Lyndon LaRouche announced that the Queen of England pushes dope. Not only that, but he declared that anyone who denies it is “worse than a Nazi-like liar.” http://www.larouchepac.com/node/14157
I mention this only because we old-timers all remember the hilarity generated decades ago by Lyn’s running around insisting that he had never said that the Queen of England pushed dope, and that anyone who said he’d said that was a Nazi and a liar.
This was, of course, after Lyn had run around saying that the Queen of England pushes dope, and that anyone who denied it was a lying Nazi.
South Park. I was discussing on an Internet message board the matter of the New York Islamic lunatics who threatened Trey Parker and Matt Stone — they would meet the fate of Theo van Gogh — after South Park dared to mock the fury over images of Muhammad. A line of interest:
A wild claim is starting to percolate on the more paranoid sites that the originator of this warning was actually a one time jewish settler of the west bank…
What? Is it second nature? Always a Zionist Jewish Plot, isn’t it? While it’s a dime a dozen and you can toss anywhere near this cult and land with this one, I’ll go straight to…
Lyndon Larouche on 9/11. What notches him his recent (mis-leading) title of “Intellectual Author of the 9/11 Movement”.
OR… Executive Intelligence Review with… well.
As for the other Richard Cohen, I can tell you something about him. He is opposing John Hechinger, the incumbent, and the chairman of the Hechinger Co. Cohen is 37 years old and works for the Executive Intelligence Review, a journal published by Lyndon LaRouche, an extreme right- wing figure. The Journal advertises a reprint in which it reveals that “associates of Henry Kissinger, Swiss financiers acting in behalf of the Nazi International” and others are planning to “rebuild Solomon’s Temple” in Jerusalem. This Cohen is also not qualified to run for anything. (The Candidate With My Name, Washington Post, April 30, 1984)
No, you mean the Masons.
The Pope’s Masonic Jewish Zionist government.
Just google “rebuild Solomon’s Temple” (with or without Kissinger) and see what you come up with. It’s an old fear, I guess.
Other Zionist Plots and schemes? You hear about Archie Comics introducing a gay character into Riverdale? You know how that happened? Zionists. A rather broad definition of “Zionist” with many a false synonym, but that’s the way it has to be if you’re going to accuse Archie Comics as being part of the Zionist Plot.
Meanwhile a debate between “Roger Ogden” and “Toaster”
However, that is where I stop agreeing with the rouchies, as everything that follows in discourse with them is like falling down the rabbit hole…reality is replaced by the wildest ravings.
Now hear my wild ravings!
Anyway. Get back Glass-Stegal. Sounds good. Hey! Bad Immigration Act. So true. Pecora Commission, of sorts. Good. I think they’re throwing up crap with “Four Party Alliance”, but it’s a good thought nonetheless — God bless the Wilsonian Impulse! Hey! What about the BRITISH Petroleum, eh? No — we can’t go there — all environmental disasters are solved by sending humanity to Mars. Answer to Carol Johnson Smith: Hm. No. Incidentally: John Bottorff, of Jasper, isn’t delusional. No comment, though at least CSJ doesn’t believe she has a chance, so that is something.
Apparently Molly thought it would be interesting and useful to post Ken’s thesis, written when he was 19, so that people could judge who knew more about Plato–the 19-year-old boy, or Greatest Mind of the Millennium (no more identification needed, am I right?)
Yeah sure. But I bet you anything Lyndon Larouche packed more dangling unexplained references to various names and figures (in a representative piece on Plato) than Ken Kronberg.
