   From Dennis King's comprehensive "Lyndon LaRouche and the New
   American Fascism," the following text makes interesting reading, 
   particularly in light of the "EIR" interviews published regularly
   to alt.activism, which simply reinforce King's assertions again
   and again... the selected quotes following King's text should also
   be of interest to those following the saga of LaRouche, a convicted
   fraud artist who conned millions out of folks all over the United
   States, and found himself in prison as a result. (LaRouche, of course,
   blames it all on the Russians, but that's another story...)

   ...LaRouche continues to pursue his anti-Semitic Grand Design through
   front organizations, coalitions with outside groups, election
   campaigns, pseudo-academic conferences, and what he calls the "naming
   of names." His propaganda methods are far more complex than those of the
   Ku Klux Klan and other extremist groups. He will start by selecting a
   legitimate issue such as AIDS, the farm crisis, or defense spending.
   Giving an appearance of sincere concern, his followers often research
   the issue thoroughly and come up with proposals that make sense. But
   they always announce that an evil plot is blocking implementation of
   their proposals and attempt to steer the campaign in an anti-Semitic
   direction. Sometimes they employ obvious euphemisms - "Zionist,"
   "usurer," "shylock," or "cabalist." Other times, they refer to
   "monetarists" (as in moneylender), "Venetion bankers" (as in 'The
   Merchant of Venice'), or "Our Crowd" (from the title of Stephen
   Birmingham's best-selling book about prominent New York Jews). They
   also use esoteric code words like "British," "Babylonian," "Whore of
   Babylon," and "Mesopotamian," which may puzzle the average person but
   strike a chord with anti-Semites of the old school.

   Another tactic is to highlight well-known Jewish families or
   individuals. The Bronfman family (Seagram's), oil tycoon Armand
   Hammer, philanthropist Max Fisher, or investiment banker Filix
   Rohatyn are either blamed for problems with which they have no
   co9nnection o assigned a greatly exaggerated responsibility. If an
   individual happens to be a mobster or some other reprehensible type,
   the LaRouchians will emphasize his misdeeds to the exclusion of those
   of this Gentile associates. (To the LaRouchians, Meyer Lansky _was
   _ the Mafia in his day; the Sicilians hardly counted.) LaRouche's
   publications also strive to hit mainstream Jews with guilt by
   assoication, through the use of semantic tags - e.g., "Lansky's ADL,"
   "Lansky's Israel."

   The list of those to be attacked includes many non-Jews, such as
   Senator Moynihan of New York or former Secretary of State Alexander
   Haig. But the attacks usually focus on their support of Israel or
   their friendship with prominent Jews, and may allude to real or
   rumored Jewish ancestry. In a 1978 piece, LaRouche called Energy
   Secretary James R. Schlesinger an "imp of evil," born Jewish and "a
   convert to Lutheranism." While Schlesinger does come from Jewish
   ancestry, LaRouche's statement basically reflected a traditional
   practice of anti-Semites - call anyone you don't like a Jew. Slyly,
   LaRouche added that Schlesinger's alleged Jewishness was really
   "irrelevant" since his "morality is neither Jewish nor Christian."
   LaRouche failed to explain why, if it was irrelevant, he had bothered
   to mention it.

   Through such tricks, LaRouchian propaganda blames the Jews for just
   about every problem facing the average American. The message is
   carefully tailored for different constituencies. Farmers are told
   that Wall Street "monetarists" are behind the agricultural crisis and
   the decline of the family farm. Teamsters union leaders are told that
   liberal Jewish foundations are behind the government's crackdown on
   union corruption. The AFL-CIO rank and file is told that its leaders
   are Zionist agents who don't really care about bread-and-butter
   problems. Black college students are told that Jews exploit black
   entertainers and that the Anti-Defamation League secretly funds the
   Ku Klux Klan. The public in general is told that Jews are inveterate
   conspirators who planned the slayings of Abraham Lincoln, John F.
   Kennedy, and Jimmy Hoffa, and are trying to assassinate LaRouche.

   The LaRouchians weave into these charges a toned-down version of the
   "blood libel" - the belief, widely held in medieval Europe, that Jews
   kidnap Christian children and use them in ritual sacrifices. Various
   wealthy American and Israeli Jews are accused of pushing drugs to
   American youth, sexually molesting them, or teaching them immorality
   via rock music and Hollywood movies.

   LaRouchian propaganda also tries to raise doubts about the patriotism
   of American Jews. When a Pentagon official, Jonathan Pollard, was
   arrested as an Israeli spy in 1986, the LaRouchians portrayed him as
   typical of Jews in the U.S. government. In March 1987, 'New
   Solidarity' published on its front page a list of Jews in the Reagan
   administration, described as agents of a "subversive parallel
   government." These individuals, including Assistant Defense Secretary
   Richard Perle and Geneva arms negotiator Max Kampelman, were
   identified as Jewish via the label "JINSA operatives" (a reference to
   the Washington-based Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs).
   An 'Executive Intelligence Review' special report described them as
   "not simply 'Zionist Lobby' activists, but hardcore Mossad
   operatives." A LaRouchian editorial urged a general "housecleaning"
   to get these associates of the Israeli "mafia" out of the U.S.
   government "once and for all."

   The loyality issue has been a standard anti-Semitic tactic ever since
   the French army captain Alfred Dreyfus was falsely convicted of
   treason in 1894. But the LaRouchians add another twist (as did Hitler
   in 'Mein Kampf,' and Stalin in his polemics against Trotsky),
   claiming that the Jews are not just spies but political agents who
   secretly manipulate policy to weaken the nation's will to resist its

   LaRouchian publications also depict Israel as providing the Soviet
   Union with intelligence culled from a vast network of Zionists in the
   U.S. goverment. It is said to be the "main intermediary country which
   Moscow uses in stealing U.S. sensitive equipment" - the United States
   gives Israel high-tech weaponry, and the Israelis pass it on.

   Such themes go hand in hand with attempts to trivialize the crimes of
   the Third Reich. In 1978 LaRouche dismissed the Holocaust as mostly
   "mythical," while his wife, Helga, called it a "swindle." 'New
   Solidarity' attacked the Holocaust curriculum in New York public
   schools as "viciously anti-German" and as "filth," saying that any
   teacher who taught it should be fired. When the television movie
   "Holocaust" was aired in 1979, 'New Solidarity' denounced it. In the
   early 1980s, LaRouchian publications began to defend Nazi war
   criminals as innocent victims of persecution. The Justice
   Department's investigation of Tscherim Soobzokov, a former SS
   officer, was attacked as an "putrageously corrupt, KGB-modeled
   witchhunt." When he was seriously wounded in a 1984 pipe-bomb
   explosion at his New Jersey home, local LaRouchians called a press
   conference and accused the Anti-Defamation League and the Israeli
   government of compicity in the bombing. They demanded the appointment
   of a federal special prosecutor. When the FBI refused to take their
   allegations seriously, and Soobzokov died, 'New Solidarity' published
   a cartoon of an FBI badge dripping with blood. "Blood on Hands of
   FBI, ADL," the headline said.

   Austrian President Kurt Waldheim seems to be another innocent victim.
   When the World Jewish Congress produced evidence of his Nazi past in
   1986, 'Executive Intelligence Review' dismissed it as a "gigantic
   hoax." World Jewish Congress chairmain Edgar Bronfman, EIR added, is
   a "Meyer Lansky-linked organized crime figure."

   President Reagan's 1985 trip to the graves of SS officers at Bitburg
   in West Germany was no policy blunder in 'New Solidarity's view, but
   a "courageious" action to strengthen the Western alliance. It gave
   the German people "a sense of pride in the historical importance of
   Germany's contribution to all mankind." Jewish leaders who opposed
   the trip such as Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, acted as anti-German
   "racists" and as dupes of Soviet propaganda. "There is no limit,"
   'Executive Intelligence Review' wrote, "to the psychotic frenzy
   [Jewish leaders] can be driven to by guilt and [Soviet] blackmail."

   Despite all this, LaRouche and his followers vehemently deny they are
   anti-Semitic. They say that the real anti-Semites are the Zionists,
   who keep the Jews in an inward-turned nationalistic frame of mind and
   use them on behalf of nefarious oligarchical political purposes. One
   of the supposed aims of the LaRouchians is to liberate the Jews from
   Zionism so they can lead fuller lives. (King, 136-139)

   The following LaRouche gems, taken from a document prepared by Chip
   Berlet and others (Request larouche larouche.wit for the entire
   collection of LaRouchian wit and wisdom), are presented here as
   examples in support of King's comments (above).  


   "Judaism is the religion of a caste of subjects of Christianity,
   entirely molded by ingenious rabbis to fit into the ideological and
   secular life of Christianity.  In short, a self-sustaining Judaism
   never existed and never could exist.  As for Jewish culture
   otherwise, it is merely the residue left to the Jewish home after
   everything saleable has been marketed to the Goyim." "The Case of
   Ludwig Feuerbach", Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., (under pen name L.
   Marcus), The Campaigner, December 1973

   "America must be cleansed for its righteous war by the immediate
   elimination of the Nazi Jewish Lobby and other British agents from
   the councils of government, industry, and labor." "A War-winning
   Strategy", Editorial, New Solidarity, March 1978


   "Zionism is the state of collective psychosis through which London
   manipulates most of international Jewry." "Zionism Is Not Judaism"
   Editorial, The Campaigner, December 1978

   Adolf Hitler

   "The first, and most important fact to be recognized concerning the
   Hitler regime, is that Adolf Hitler was put into power in Germany on
   orders from London.  The documentation of this matter is abundant and
   conclusive." "Humboldt Versus Hitler", Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., The
   Campaigner, August 1978

   The Rockefellers

   "The Rockefeller designs for fascism are essentially identical with
   the Hitler and Mussolini forms of the past." "The Conceptual History
   of the Labor Committees", Lyndon H.  LaRouche Jr., (under pen name L.
   Marcus), The Campaigner, October 1974

   "Nelson A.  Rockefeller is a raving fascist presently pushing as
   rapidly as he is able to impose a fascist police-state in the U.S.A.
   before the 1976 elections." "The Guts Needed to Survive", Editorial,
   The Campaigner, August 1975


   "Britain has in fact two governments, the first a parliamentary
   charade for the edification of the credulous, the other the real
   monarchial government." "The Secrets Known Only To The Inner Elites"
   Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., The Campaigner, May-June 1978

   "We shall end the rule of irrationalist episodic majorities, of
   British liberal notions of 'democracy.'" "Creating a Republican Labor
   Party" Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., Citizens for LaRouche Policy
   Statement, c.  1980

   Milton Friedman

   "Friedman's good repute among American conservatives is a result of a
   monstrous hoax.  ...  Friedman has admitted, without the slightest
   sign of embarrassment, that his economic doctrines are a resurrection
   of those of Nazi Economics Minister Hjalmar Schacht....Dose Friedman
   himself propose to murder some tens of millions of 'useless
   eaters'?...It is not merely that the inner content of his economics
   is fascist, but that he demands the destruction of every criterion of
   reason that might hold us back from the horrifying final consequences
   of his policies." "The Ugly Truth About Milton Friedman", Lyndon H.
   LaRouche, Jr.  and David P.  Goldman, New Benjamin Franklin
   Publishing House (1980)


   "The inner hierarchy of the Episcopagan church is properly viewed not
   merely as something within the established Church of England, but as
   a coordinating agency for an array of forces with arms not only among
   Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern autocephalic denominations....It
   controls, with complicity of Venice, Libya's psychotic Colonel
   Khadafy, and most of the New York Council on Foreign Relations, as
   well as the psychological warfare and assassination arm of British
   intelligence, the London Tavistock Institute." "Why the Anglicans
   Want to Eliminate the Pope", Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., Executive
   Intelligence Review, June 2, 1981


   Can one punish sheep for being sheep?  The Israelis have behaved with
   monstrous, worse-than-Nazi bestiality.  But are not sheep bestial?
   Are not the Israelis behaving with the bestiality of terrified sheep,
   driven to homicidal psychosis by their won bestial fears?  What can
   be done with such bestial Israelis, except to transform them from
   bestial sheep, to take them out of the kibbutz sheep-pens of
   psychosis, and employ the method of the Platonic dialogue to
   transform them into genuine men and women of reason?" "Despite What
   Israel Has Done" Lyndon H.  LaRouche, Jr., The Campaigner, March 1978

   The Jones Cult

   "The two official U.S.  government agencies most directly responsible
   for the Symbionese Liberation Army and the Jones Peoples Temple cult
   are the U.S.  Air Force Intelligence and the Office of Naval
   Intelligence (ONI).  Until the massive British- Zionist controlling
   penetration of those two elements of the Pentagon's intelligence
   establishment is cleaned out, untold horrors will continue to
   proliferate in the United States." "Now, Do You Sleep With One Eye
   Open?", Lyndon H.  LaRouche Jr., Campaigner Special Report, Copyright
