It never fails. Whenever there are new developments concerning Jeremiah Duggan and his death, or new media attention out of Britain (see here), the Larouche organization preps their response unit and hits… WIKIPEDIA!!!!!
Wikipedia is biased toward Britain and against Germany, and Slim Virgin is distorting the picture here.
Okay. Albert Sumlin. He’s a proud cyclist who wishes he owned a Plymouth Roadrunner. Good to know? Also he’s been making edits for various wikipedia articles since… April 21, 2010, eh? Now to be fair, his edit on Kesha Rogers appears pretty appropriate.
Meantime, Thomas Rooney is upset by wikipedia’s portrayal of the LYM.
As one of the two persons actually responsible for the birth of the LaRouche Youth Movement, I can say, authoritatively, that this article is innacurate. I’m tempted to use stronger words. If anyone is serious about the true history: email@example.com. Leave a distinct subject, or it will probably be ignored.
All right! Everyone, email Thomas Rooney — Co-founder of the LYM, at firstname.lastname@example.org and leave a distinct subject to find out the TRUTH behind the LYM! STOP THE LIES of the BRITISH EMPIRE!
I don’t really trust anyone who comes out of a “Basement Project“:
The next link on the home page is “The Basement Project.” The first link on that page is a video called “Gauss and the Physical Tensor.” After skimming the introductory paragraph, I was disinclined to go click on the video, but the train-wreck attraction of LaRouche was sinking its claws deeper and deeper and my curiosity got the best of me. The video starts with a dark field of outer space. As an ominous, yet exciting note played by what sounds like a decent-sized orchestra fades in, a distant rock-like object appears in the center of the screen. A nearby planet fades into the foreground from the bottom-left corner of the as a male voice introduces the video: “Human civilization now faces a dire threat. Its impact has the power to wipe humanity off the face of the Earth.” The farcically melodramatic tone of the announcer’s voice, not to mention the script, reminded me of late-60s Japanese monster flicks. You know–the ones in which you would occasionally catch a shot of a four-legged cross between a Stegosaurus and a bee moving around by using the knees of his hind legs rather than the feet?
It is funny. There is no right and no left. It is all just one Massive Octupus Conspiracy to Get Larouche. See here for evidence.
Topic 2. I have had quite a bit of fun here, figuratively kicking the teeth in of the newly nominated Republican Senate candidate in Kentucky. I actually wish I had started about a week or so before the election — I could see his problems coming from a mile away. For the sake of this blog-post, I just have to point to comments from former Bush official David Frum — now a bit of an apostate among some Republicans — who, in looking at his party, actually mentioned:
Unfortunately, people eager for a strong message can be undiscriminating about the messenger. I remember in the late 1970s how much conservatives disliked Jimmy Carter’s “age of limits” message. We believed in growth, opportunity, technology – so much so that many of my friends fell (briefly) victim to Lyndon Larouche’s mad ideology, which exploited those good themes to bad ends.
A bit of predictability comes with these remarks — from Cato:
I never knew anyone who fell for Lyndon Larouche; I never even heard of any actual person who followed him; but David Frum had “many friends” who became followers of the nuttiest guy ever to run for president? That’s some band of friends.
Looking at this in the narrowest of ways: Certainly the Larouchies trolled for and picked up money when swerving out the “Hub Ub” on the right wing / conservative in the spectrum in the late 1970s and early 1980s, espousing certain causes. There is something that puzzles me about Fusion — in the shufflings of political and partisan alignments, it generally came to be espoused and associated with the “Right”. I think that is kind of arbitrary. But then again, I have a cynical thought. The “9/11 Truth” Movement — while not entirely consigned to the “Left” is generally a hallucination associated with a Left. This would have been flipped if the 9/11 had happened under a Democratic President.
As for the Pauls — Frum continued on and some items of debate roiled. How is it that the GOP has lost its antibodies against a candidate like Rand Paul?
Funny thing. I am pretty sure that same word “anti-bodies” was used in description of the situation with the Democratic Party in Illinois and their two Democratic candidates. There’s a natural difference, of course. While certain corners of the Paul base are prone to draw out rather Larouchian ideas such as the Bilderberg’s plotted Assassination and warnings of pre-emptive vote rigging, those stem outside of the Pauls. And we also know who has the better chance of winning an election.
Speaking of Alex Jones…
I was watching a clip of him last week, where he accused the violent exploitation movie “Machette” of being a CIA plot to incite a race war in the United States — and he dropped the somewhat standard conspiratorial phrase, “the same people who used to control the British Empire” —
… To Tarpley! Howie G has … sour grapes?
Webster Tarpley is a sellout. He couldn’t make money with LaRouche, so he invented his own weird theories, mostly to sell stupid books. He should have stayed with LaRouch epac .com and done something useful.
Was that around when Tarpley was with the group? Also, as always, sounds like a good idea to take your ideas where you can make money. And the weird theories seem about the same, don’t they? It’s just that you don’t get any credit for them in the org. At least he has a face when popping up on Alex Jones.
Glass Stegal! As supported by the former fed chairman that Larouche considered perpetuating a new Dark Ages, and as opposed by the former President he considered in the tradition of FDR. Fairly predictably, this provision was in a rather slimy fashion brushed aside. One step toward mediocrity as Obama happily checks this “to do” off his check list. What does it mean? Let’s turn to the Larouchies.
Actually, let’s don’t. We have this: LYNDON LAROUCHE is the answer, his party is anti-depressional. And we have a lot of … Well, according to them Chaos beckons now. My survival depends on the passing of Glass Stegal. Interesting. Did I die after it was revoked?
Maybe there’s something from Greece that we can take in?
Funny thing about that dog. A similar situation is taking place in the deployments of the Lyndon Larouche organization. A small yellow dog keeps appearing in city after city. It appears to be the same dog, and so has been given a nickname: Archimides. Now, in Greece Kanellos is said to “Always be on the side of the Protesters”. It’s hard to make of what Archimedes is doing — he just wanders in, takes a leak on the card table, and leaves.
I always thought that reading up on classical history was supposed to give some sense of Historical Perspective, but what do I know? An idea: Obama — Bush merger. It makes some more sense than Obama — Hitler. See where it gets you in terms of reaction, instead of this or whatever.
But. It’s funny. Room for some disasters and not others.
Jacques Cheminade, the small-time Marshal Pétain who has long headed the LaRouche org in France. He was in charge of the recruitment team that persuaded Jeremiah Duggan to go to the 2003 German conference. The French LaRouchians who accompanied Jeremiah were sent home after his death and told to keep their mouths shut and not even talk about Jeremiah to each other. Under Cheminade’s strict discipline, this has worked fairly well…so far
Jonathan Tenenbaum, who Jonathan Tennenbaum was one of two LaRouche representatives that met with Erica and Hugo Duggan shortly after Jeremiah died, when they traveled to Wiesbaden.[…] he was assigned this “job” because, formally, he is Jewish and on occasion he can sound semi-sane and at least pretend to act like a human being. […] at minimum, he was responsible for dealing with the Duggans and, more to the point, he was probably assigned the role of figuring out what really happened. Then he could help formulate plans/ploys/ways to handle “the problem”. Surely, he served as a conduit of intelligence information–a one-way conduit. Without question he told his bosses, Lyndon and Helga LaRouche, everything that happened during his meetings and conversations with the Duggans.
