Default Fringe group likens Obama to Hitler

There's a reason this is in the "Media" section...

Fringe group likens Obama to Hitler

Quote:
Followers of political fringe activist Lyndon LaRouche are getting under the skin of some Californians for linking U.S. President Obama to Adolf Hitler.

A LaRouche political action committee is promoting six congressional candidates, including one in California, the Marin Independent Journal in Novato, Calif., reported Sunday. The group has put up posters in Marin County showing Obama with the small mustache favored by the World War II-era Nazi Germany leader, prompting complaints to police and public officials, the newspaper said.
As stated before on this forum, LaRouche is a DEMOCRAT...

The six Congressional candidates this political action committee is supporting?...

All DEMOCRATS...

Number of times the word "DEMOCRAT" is in the article?....

ZERO...

The lies of omission run deep, young Skywalker...

LaRouche ran for President while in prison. That is all you really need to know about him.

The man is a certifiable nut. I could go on for pages and pages about this irrational man.

Agreed, but this was about the reporting...or rather, the LACK of it...

I would not look too far into it. This is just one UPI article.

Besides, he is not really a Democrat. He is just a crazy man that attracts fringe groups and followers. Not exactly a Democrat by traditional or modern definitions.

First of all, the candidates and whether or not they are "democrat" IS IRRELEVANT to this issue.
DID ANY OF THESE SIX CANDIDATES actually call Obama Hitler?

Whether or not this extremist group supports these politicians is irrelevant.
Hitler himself could "support" a political candidate. That doesn't make the candidate inherently wrong.

As for Lyndon LaRouche's affiliation...
Lyndon LaRouche is a white guy.
If I pointed out LaRouche is a white guy, is that relevant?
If he were a white Republican, pointing out that he was white would have people on the right SCREAMING over "racist" innuendo.

Moreover, Lyndon LaRouche started his own "Labor Party", so to label him exclusively as "Democrat" is grotesquely inaccurate.
We could label Tea Partiers as "Republican" and ignore the fact that they have any Tea Party affiliation, but I bet you would see the folly in that.

Finally, the extremist group themselves...
The LaRouche movement is an international political and cultural network that promotes Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas. It has included scores of organizations and companies around the world. Their activities include campaigning, private intelligence gathering, and publishing numerous periodicals, pamphlets, books, and online content. It characterizes itself as a Platonist Whig movement which favors re-industrialization and classical culture, and which opposes what it sees as the genocidal conspiracies of Aristotelian oligarchies such as the British Empire. Outsiders characterize it as a fringe movement and it has been criticized from across the political spectrum.

Not "democrat"

Thanks cnredd for giving us the LaRouche news. I was so interested in what he was doing as a democrat. Maybe later you will bring us up to speed on what David Duke is up to. Maybe I should be mad at the media for only reporting on the Dem and not the republican racist. That ole evil media

You notice how the usual suspects completely missed the point? One would think that this thread being in the "media" section would have clued them in that the core issue isn't really Larouche but the double standard with which the media treats crazy democrats and crazy republicans.

But then, you don't really expect much thought to come from wild-eyed, mouth-foaming idealogues so I guess it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise that they reacted the way they did.

When a guy came armed to a protest in Phoenix held outside the convention center where Obama was speaking the media was all atwitter with condemnations of the Republicans and the Tea Party. Remember when the picture of Obama in Joker makeup surfaced? That was supposed to be Tea Party racisim too. Turns out both these people were followers of LaRouche but the Obama loving media instantly painted them as Tea Party Republicans.

But if he were a white Republican, "white" wouldn't be used while "Republican" would be prominently displayed...

He abandoned the Labor Party tag to become Democrat over THIRTY YEARS ago...

Nail meets head IP...

They bend over backwards to say that he is not "really" a Democrat (even though his own website says "LaRouche Democrats", but that's not even the point...

The point is that whether or not he's 20% Democrat, 50% Democrat, or 90% Democrat, the article doesn't mention "Democrat" AT ALL...Democrats and the media (redundancy alert) are embarrassed by LaRouche, not only for his policies but for denying the media the right to corner the market in their "Only rightwingers and Tea Party supporters call Obama Hitler" campaign, so they use the lie of omission to make sure thier false narrative stays intact...
