Dingell Town Hall Man with Hitler Picture Is Larouche a Communist?

The fellow at the Town Hall carrying the Obama picture with the mustache told someone he was an FDR Democrat. He and his friend were handing out booklets at the back door as I left so I got one. Someone posted that the head of the group, Lyndon LaRouche, is a communist. I don't know if he is a communist but I found some interesting historical information in the booklet. He hates the Nazi's and Great Britain and loves Franklin Roosevelt. He warns of the coming euthanasia and rationing espoused by Dr. Ezekial Emmanuel and documents interesting information in a number of articles in the booklet. I haven't read all of it but it starts out with an egotistical article about how the govt should have been listening to him (Larouche) all along. It turned into an interesting historical study of euthanasia and genocide and our sinking hosptial system as well as background on Dr. Ezekiel Emanual,and I spent way to much time doing this! :-0

The booklet stated that Hitler's plan for Genocide began in England with the Malthusianism and Eugenics movement. He said the fascist propaganda espoused by Sir Francis Galton in his manifest, Hereditary Genius (1869) and his Eugenics Education Society, had caught on 1910 - 1920s in the U.S. and spawned forced sterilization laws, immigration and racial restrictions. He said the U.S. laws were used as a model in Germany later. He said, "... it was particularly popular with the Harvard, Boston Brahmin set, including the Harriman family." He goes on to say that, "the only reason such fascist programs were not implemented in the U.S., is because the American people elected Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who fought to his last breath against the British fascist financiers and ideologues, and brought the United States out of the Depression." Several articles go on to talk about Nazi Doctors. At the end of this summary, you can see how Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel's background sounds equally frightening.

The article by Marcia Merry Baker on the Hill-Burton Hospital system which was authorized in 1946 under the Hill-Burton Act as an ammendment ot the Public Health Service Act, manded Federal and local cooperation to achieve the goal of having a community hospital in every county and to have a ratio of 5.5 beds per 1,000 patients. There were 40 hospitals added per year through the mid-1960s. By the 1970s they had 4.5 beds per 1,000 and in 1965, Medicare and Medicaid began. Today the numer of hospitals have dropped from 7,000 to under 5,000 with the national average ratio of beds-per-1,000 now at 3. "The reality is, that the U.S. SYSTEM OF HEALTH-CARE delivery-based on regional networks of hospitals, anchoring programs of education, sanitation, and epidemiology, as well as screening and treatment - IS FALLING APART, BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMIC CRISIS, AND THE CUMULATIVE IMPACT OF 'MANAGED CARE/HMO SWINDLES." She stated that the shift away from that plan began in February 1971 when President Nixon established HMOs, "following a 'cost containment' script provided by international financial circles, which in the same period, succeeded in imposing a series of globalization-serving measures. These included deregulation of utilities, priviatization of tradtional government functions, and international floating exchange rates-all intended to undermine national economies with yielding loot for the financial circles" In 1973 the pilot project HMOs went into effect with bipartisan support led by Ted Kennedy. The article goes on to say that the top 50 HMOs are presently are backed by six banks (who got our bail out money). In 1976 the HMO Act offered HMOs as an option under Medicare and the plan was expanded in 1983. Now...In 2006 Government payments to non-HMO Medicare and Medicaid care providers WERE CUT. ( 23 YEARS FOR GOVERNMENT TO MAKE THEIR PLAN MANDATORY IF YOU WANT TO GET PAID).
Anyway, the last article by Tony Papert details the background (and a paper written in 1998) of DR.EZEKIEL EMANUEL and his health-care reform plan with his co-author, Margaret Pabst Battin (not a physician), "What are the Potential Cost Savings from Legalizing Physician-Assisted suicide?" She also wrote "Should Medical Care be Rationed by Age?" (1987), "Age-rationing and the Just Distribution of Health Care: Is There a Duty to Die?" *1987), and "Can We Copy the Dutch? Can Holland's Practice of Voluntary Euthanasia Be a Model for the United States?"(1993), and her 1992 essay, "Physician-Assisted Suicide - Yes, But in the V.A.?", as well as others, equally alarming articles. The group of "advisors" that President Obama has amassed truly do have frightening friends and backgrounds.

I,at least, by reading through the booklet, have a better understanding of how our medical system got into this mess.
I can forsee that the next debacle will happen much faster if the Health Care Plan passes.

I did not know much about the man (LaRouche), except that he was considered quite eccentric, or just crazy to others. He is a throwback to my childhood. I remember people ridiculing him and his politics. But, I guess if those two yound men and their sign were planted by Dingell and his supporters, I'll have to get used to being on my guard constantly. I would hate to get too cynical about the motivations of people I don't know. Until I find out for sure on this I will withhold judgement.

See also: Views of Lyndon LaRouche
Lyndon Hermyle LaRouche, Jr. (born September 8, 1922) is an American self-styled economist,[1] a political activist, and the founder of several political organizations, known collectively as the LaRouche movement. He has been a perennial candidate for President of the United States, having run in eight elections since 1976, once as a U.S. Labor Party candidate and seven times as a candidate for the Democratic Party nomination.
There are sharply contrasting opinions on LaRouche. Supporters have described him as the greatest living economist,[2] and a political leader in the tradition of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King.[3][4] Critics have called him an extremist,[5] a conspiracy theorist, [6] a political cult leader,[7] a fascist,[8] and/or an antisemite.[9] The Heritage Foundation has said that he "leads what may well be one of the strangest political groups in American history".[10][11] In 1984, LaRouche's research staff was described by Norman Bailey, a former senior staffer of the National Security Council, as "one of the best private intelligence services in the world".[11]
LaRouche was sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment in 1988 for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and tax code violations, but continued his political activities from behind bars until his release in 1994 on parole. His defense attorney, Ramsey Clark, a former U.S. Attorney General, argued that the case represented an unprecedented abuse of power by the U.S. government in an effort to destroy the LaRouche organizations.[12] LaRouche and his defenders believe the prosecution was a politically motivated conspiracy involving government officials, numerous others, and a mass-media brainwashing campaign.[13]
LaRouche is currently listed as a director and contributing editor of the Executive Intelligence Review News Service, part of the LaRouche movement.[14] He has written extensively on economic, scientific, and political topics as well as on history, philosophy, and psychoanalysis.
[edit] Political activism

[edit] 1948–1967 LaRouche and Trotskyism
In 1948, LaRouche returned to Lynn after dropping out of college and began attending meetings of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP)'s Lynn branch. He joined the party the next year, adopting the pseudonym Lyn Marcus for his political work. According to LaRouche's autobiography, he "never encountered a member of the SWP who understood anything of Marx's economics or method." By his account, he joined the SWP after receiving assurances from SWP vice-presidential candidate Grace Carlson that the SWP was a "movement open to exploring new ideas of the type I identified."[31]
LaRouche obtained work as a management consultant in New York City, advising companies on how to use computers to maximise efficiency and speed up production. In 1954, he married fellow SWP member Janice Neuberger. Their son, Daniel, was born in 1956. By 1961, the LaRouches lived in a large apartment on Central Park West. His activity in the internal life of the SWP was minimal due to his preoccupation with his career.
In 1964, while still in the SWP, LaRouche became associated with a faction called the Revolutionary Tendency, which had been expelled from the party and was under the influence of the British Trotskyist leader Gerry Healy, leader of the British Socialist Labour League.[32] For six months, LaRouche worked closely with American Healyite leader Tim Wohlforth, who later wrote:
LaRouche had a gargantuan ego. Convinced he was a genius, he combined his strong conviction in his own abilities with an arrogance expressed in the cadences of upper-class New England. He assumed that the comment in the Communist Manifesto that "a small section of the ruling class cuts itself adrift, and joins the revolutionary class..." was written specifically for him. And he believed that the working class were lucky to obtain his services. LaRouche possessed a marvelous ability to place any world happening in a larger context, which seemed to give the event additional meaning, but his thinking was schematic, lacking factual detail and depth. It was contradictory. His explanations were a bit too pat, and his mind worked so quickly that I always suspected his bravado covered over superficiality. He had an answer for everything. Sessions with him reminded me of a parlor game: present a problem, no matter how petty, and without so much as blinking his eye, LaRouche would dream up the solution.[33]
He remained in the SWP until his expulsion in 1965. He maintains that he was soon disillusioned with Marxism, dropped out of the SWP in the mid-1950s, and resumed his activism only at the prompting of the FBI citing national security concerns. In an interview on the Pacifica Radio network, LaRouche said that he returned to the SWP because he believed that only the Left was likely to combat what he called the "utopian" danger coming from the Right, typified by the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War.[34] His ex-wife and other SWP members from that time dispute this.[35] During these years, LaRouche developed an interest in economics, cybernetics, psychoanalysis, business management, and other subjects. He and his wife separated in 1963 and were subsequently divorced.
In 1965, LaRouche left Tim Wohlforth's group and joined the Spartacist League, which had split from Wohlforth. He left after a few months and wrote a letter to the SWP declaring that all factions and sections of the Trotskyist Fourth International were dead and announcing that he and his new partner, Carol Larrabee (also known as Carol Schnitzer), were going to build the Fifth International.[36]
In 1966, the couple joined the Committee for Independent Political Action (CIPA), a New Left/Old Left coalition that was running independent anti-war candidates in New York City elections, and formed a branch in Manhattan's West Village.

Everything about the meeting was craftily staged and very controlled. The sign would not have gotten in there unless they wanted it there. I believe they wanted/ expected "us" to embrace the guy with the sign as one of "us". That would have made the news.

I wonder how many of "them" are exempt from HR3200.

I don't know what the two guys with the BO/Hitler poster and their politics were about, but I know a Teamster thug found it necessary to walk across the room, while Dingell was speaking, and started to harass the both of them. It looked like it might actually get violent, and the two guys looked a bit frightened of the Teamster. I found it necessary to tell the guy to knock it off and go back to the other side of the room where he had been standing before. I spoke with the white guy on the way out at the end of the sham meeting , but I had a hard time hearing what he was saying with all the noise in the room. I really don't know what group or ideology he was representing. To be quite honest, I found the BO/ Hitler poster apropos considering what is being perpetrated in this country. It was quite tame compared to some of the vile crap spewed out by the left toward Bush, and I was no fan of his either.

That would be me, who said Lyndon Larouche used to be a communist. He ran for President numerous
times, one being the U.S. Labor Party.
Do a Google or Bing search and start reading.

Also, the Atlantic, a liberal magazine, used the picture of BO photo shopped to look like
Hitler as proof conservatives were Nazis. This picture was carried thru the hall by a
young black man. A white guy handed out the pamphlet.
They were either opportunists or plants to get our reaction along with pictures to be used
against conservatives.
