Members of the LaRouche Political Action Committee set up tables in front of Ben Lomond Market and the Felton Post Office on Monday, May 9. The booths showed posters of Obama’s face with a small mustache, akin to the style Adolf Hitler wore as Germany’s Nazi leader.
“We’re in a very big drive right now,” said Angela Zullo, a LaRouche PAC organizer based in Virginia. “We’re campaigning across the country right now.”
The Press-Banner received several phone calls from passers-by who complained about by the content of the poster.
The PAC’s literature included a message from former presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche urging Congress to pass House Resolution 1489, the Glass-Steagall bill, which would repeal some provisions of the Gramm-Bliley Act and revive the separation between commercial banking and the securities business.
The Gramm-Bliley Act of 1999 allowed commercial banks, securities firms, investment banks and insurance companies to consolidate.
The group used pictures of Obama with a Hitler-style mustache on the posters, Zullo said, to illustrate the way it perceives the president’s relationship with Britain.
“We are exposing the controllers of Obama,” she said, explaining that LaRouche holds that Obama’s support of British policy that controls energy and pushes for solar and wind power is wrong and is an attempt to depopulate the world. “The banks of the British Empire are pushing a policy of genocide.”
The literature the group handed out called for Obama’s ouster. Included was this statement from LaRouche:
“…The system is collapsing. If this President continues to be President, the situation in the United States is hopeless; and by implication, that of the trans-Atlantic system. If the trans-Atlantic system goes, then Asia, goes. Humanity goes into a ditch. So therefore, this must be faced! This is the issue! Glass-Steagall, first. President, out, second, or part of the package.”
LaRouche campaigned for presidential office between 1976 and 2004 and became known as a political extremist during his time in the spotlight.
