That's wonderful. Thanks for sharing. :)

Did you video this? I'd pay to watch:)

Lyndon LaRouche is always good for a laugh! Is he out of prison already?

actor212

And yet, it's the Larouchians who helped launch the Teabaggers.

Bravo! That's just plain wonderful, as someone mentioned above I'd love to see a video of that.

El Jefe

Excellent.

Cue Jake Blues: "Hudson Valley LaRouchies. I hate those guys."

Lance,
That was a gallant venture into a world of derp right there. The wit is the best part. And the lizard-brain trigger response all about weakness ("pathetic!") is a good sample for those essays you did on the mental furniture of the right.

Here in the Willamette Valley we actually had a brief admixture of LaRouchies and Birchers pushing to impeach outside our post office. Until they discovered doctrinal niggles in their breeds of crazy and fractured, that is. They (LaRouchies) are a wierdly hardy breed and an excellent example of domestic fascism: quasi-communist roots; appeals to "independent thought" and the small gods of the individual wed to discreet torture, fractured cults of personality, wierd sex, and brainwashing; some of the best repellent conspiracy theories this side of the Elders of Zion; chest-thumping respect from proper European fascists (the Schiller Institute, Russian wierdos of several flavors); and some of the most full-throated xenophobic yeoman white-privilege rage this side of John Nelson Darby, the Know-Nothings, or Jim Crow. No wonder they and the modern Repubs, especially the loony populist idealist wing, feel sympathetic vibrations.

You done a good thing.

El Jefe

Nearly wrote "fractured cults of wierd sex" in there somewhere. That would really be like the GOP ....

Perlstein

"Seems like a good time to re-read Rick Perlstein’s short history of Right Wing craziness."

Great time to read his LONG histories, too!... ;-)

Lance

Mr Perlstein,

You wouldn't happen to be referring to two of the best political histories I've ever read, Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America and Before the Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus, would you?

Perlstein

Never heard of 'em.

Cliff Hendroval

You didn't wait for them to explain how the Queen of England is the criminal mastermind of the entire planet?
