The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

The LaRouche Cult & the Nation of Islam


The professional bigots of the Nation of Islam (NOI) and the Lyndon LaRouche organization have recently revived an ad hoc alliance to advance their attack on Jews and Jewish organizations. They have held joint programs and street demonstrations to vilify the Anti-Defamation League for allegedly fostering the AIDS epidemic, promoting drugs and violence, and "attacking" black leaders. Much of their rhetoric has been confrontational and violence prone. The two fired a new incendiary salvo recently, suggesting that ADL is somehow involved in a plot to kill Minister Louis Farrakhan.

Apart from the bleak diversion offered by this spectacle, it is useful, on a more serious level, to see what these hate peddlers have in common. It's hard to imagine two more disparate fringe groups. The Nation of Islam, a black separatist, anti-white group, boasts ties to Libya and an assortment of neo-Marxist radical groups and violent street gangs.[1] The LaRouche political cult, whose bizarre conspiracy theories are impossible to place on the ideological map, draws mainly white, middle-class adherents.
