Lyndon LaRouche NutJobs Spotted

Original post made by Derek, Danville, on Sep 10, 2011

For the second time in the last few weeks, I noticed a pair of fringe types planting themselves on - and illegally blocking - the sidewalk at the north B of A parking lot exit along San Ramon Valley Blvd in town. Their M.O. is to post many amusing posters of Obama with little Hitler mustaches. I'm sure I am not the only one who has seen them. A few weeks back, it was a couple of surfer looking dudes whose posters gibbered something regarding Obama's budget cuts to Nasa. Today, Saturday the 10th, a different pair were perhaps a bit more honest about their true orientation. These two, a white male and an African American female, displayed Lyndon LaRouche PAC posters.
Now, I'm no Obama fan, though for very different reasons than the republicans who post on these boards. Perhaps if someone were displaying artwork depicting Mr. O as say.... missing a certain portion of normal male anatomy, I might go along with it. God knows he seems unwilling to stand up to anyone.
But a Hitler mustache? Really? The irony is so obvious it really does not need pointing out - particularly when the Obama posters are surrounded by LaRouche website addresses. Let's see: is our boy Lyndon a bit anti-semitic? Nah, that couldn't be! And what of the dark skinned lady tending the little "protest booth". Might she be taking a train ride somewhere if Lyndon had his way, or if there were an actual white supremacist in command? Do any of the four people I've seen in the booth care to note that folks of Jewish descent passing through B of A might not appreciate their little cartoon witticism? Do they really think cutting Nasa's budget was tantamount to some sort of nazi-esque action, never mind that it was hardly Obama's decision anyway? Moreover, do they really have nothing better to do on a hot Saturday afternoon than make complete fools of themselves in a most public way?
Make no mistake. No engineers from Nasa would be out doing this. The two guys I saw back in August might have worked for a Nasa supplier as shipping/receiving clerks, but no more. And the two today? The lady in particular needs to purchase a clue at the nearest retailer, and she needs to do it soon.
Anyone want to do a Youtube video?

A lot of Jewish people might not disapprove of putting a Hitler mustache on Obama. The WSJ reported today that 68% of Jewish voters disapproved of Mr. Obama's position on Israel.

Web Link

I agree with you, though, Derek. I've never understood how people can assert that Obama's "hard stance" on Israel makes him an anti-Semite. Israel is a country, not an ethnicity.

Why can't a person oppose the military and political policies of Israel without being labeled an anti-Semite? Is it not possible to love Jews and still oppose the political actions of Israel?

If you actually read up on Obama's stance on Israel and comments he has made in many speeches about the people of Israel, he is very much an anti-Semite.

Also, who does he think he is telling another world leader to change the borders of his country? He acted like a complete insolent child when Netanyahu was a guest in our country and he didn't get his way. Great example for his girls, don't you think?

I love when "anyone" makes fun of Obama, no matter what the joke or stance because I believe he is the WORST President this country has ever had....bar none! Another 4 years of him and this country will be destroyed! It is obvious that he despises Israel, afterall he is a Muslim in disguise! Nothing Obama has done has helped this country, but "everything" he has done has harmed it! Maybe that has been his intent?? Think about it!!

CW: Your post is long on paranoid delusions, and short on evidence. Try the decaf.

Hell, try the Xanax!

spcwt - did you intend to imply that Jewish Americans would consider Obama akin with Hitler? A crazy man who was intent on wiping out an entire race in the most hideous way imaginable?

I find that concept invalidating myself, but I am not sure you meant it that way. Am I misinterpreting?

Cardinal: Delusional am I??? You must be a liberal because any moran can see how Obama has damaged this country. He is either very stupid or is intentionally destroying America. Wake up and smell the coffee yourself, and by the way maybe you are the one that needs to take xanax!!! Obama thinks 57 states makeup our country and said as much in a speech! Most elementary students know there are only 50! He embarrassed our country by making a toast to the Queen of England during their national anthem! Who does that?? Someone who is either very stupid or has NO CLASS....or BOTH!

Cardinal: Here are examples of Obama's failed presidency:
*His so-called "Stimulus Bill" didn't stimulate anything, but debt!
*He increased the national debt from $4 Trillion to $15 Trillion in 2 1/2 years....and wants to continue his spending spree!
*He promised transparency but has been anything but!
*His Obamacare is basically a mechanism to take our freedom and will cost more than the government is currently spending for healthcare.
*He signed the Amnesty Bill and halted deportation of illegals so he can get their votes in the 2012 election!
*He has stomped all over our Constitution!
Is this enough proof for you?

Barbara, rest assured, I do NOT consider President Obama an anti-Semite. Like you and Derek, I consider the idea to be ludicrous.

President Obama is taking political positions on the state of Israel that some people find offensive. That does not make him an anti-Semite.

CW, what is a "moran"? Ha ha. My guess is, you're probably some bored teenager trying to get a laugh by stirring up trouble on this website. If so, good for you! Ha ha.

CDub: These scurrilous lies are no truer since the first time you wrote them, last summer.

I'll just take one: per OMB, National debt has grown as follows:

1990: $3.2 Trillion
2000: $5.6 Trillion
2008 $10.025 Trillion

Obama gets the blame for growth since then, but it's not, at all, $4T to $15T. Step awaaaay from the Fox News channel, now breathe deeply .

You don't have to agree with a protest to allow it. As a matter of fact, peaceful protests that you really dislike and are unpopular are important to defend as that is the very meaning of freedom of speech.

No one needs to defend the uttering of popular opinions. I don't agree with the opinions expressed by the group, but as an American, I am obliged to defend their right to express them.

I prefer Jefferson to Adams anyway you slice it.

CW,...not sure how old YOU are, but I'm close to 60, and have been watching the political scene closely, since college (...you know,..where you go to 'fine-tune' critical thinking ~ something you should look in to!).

There is no doubt, none what-so-ever, that the worst President in the last 50 years has been George W. Bush: He is the REAL reason we're in the mess today...and believing anything else is just pure rubbish.

Period! (..that, and Reaganomics,...which has brought this country to it's financial knees in about 30 years!). Now it's obvious that President Obama has had a rough time, and hasn't done the job; but when your hands are tied, it's rather difficult to accomplish your agenda....

Alan, I agree with you!
To Cardinal and "Danville Resident":
It appears to be an impossible feat to change a liberal's mind once he/she has it made up! They don't look at the true facts! I not only listen to FOX I read the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal to get my facts so I think I know what I am talking about! There is no doubt in my mind that Obama, along with the liberals in Congress have made our economy much worse. Obama has spent; (wasted)more "taxpayer" money in his three years in office than ALL THE PRESIDENTS COMBINED! Tell me, you libs out there, what did the stimulus bill do to stimulate the economy? How many jobs, other than government jobs, has Obama created? Who caused the housing crisis?.... One clue: try the Community Reinvestment Act implemented during the Carter era! The Dems believed "everyone" should have the opportunity to own a home whether they could afford it or not and forced banks to make loans to basically "everyone"! Well, many of those homeowners couldn't make the payments and many were "upside down" in their loans so just walked away, thus foreclosures ran rampant and continue to do so today! Actually George Bush and John McCain saw this coming and attempted to install roadblocks but were stimied by the Dems who at that time had control of the House and Senate. Now, do I really sound like a stupid, uninformed teenager who watches cartoons all day????!!!! Cardinal, let's stop the typical liberal name calling and verbal abuse. It's petty and immature!

Hey CW, you also sound like a racist and are very xenophobic, based on your post in another forum about the man who was sentenced for embezzlement. You took one look at his name and assumed he was an illegal alien. What does CW stand for anyway? Classless and Witless?

Uh guys, I was just trying to point out the profound irony of an African American woman "manning" a Lyndon LaRouche booth. And no, Obama not being behind Israel's current loony government does not make him worthy of a swastica - perhaps an award. It's one of the few stances he's taken I actually agree with lately. And so does an enormous majority of the planet at this point in time.
Just so everyone knows though, I vote green or independent, and will continue to do so. I detested the Cheney Regime, and have little love for the current commander who has continued the previous adminstrations failed foreign policies.
