You're probably too young to remember the Hare Krishnas annoying the shit out of people in the airport in the '80s...
Is the Symbionese Liberation Army still active? WR would be a prime target for takeover by the SLA.
I think I've pointed this out before, but we have to remember that Selina is English (or at least that's what she says, and I have no reason to doubt her). Americans mostly see LaRouche as a harmless (though louder than average) wacko, and as for his followers, we also mostly realize that there's no essential difference between a LaRouche "follower" and a LaRouche "employee," other than that the employees might be carrying guns on occasion.
The English, on the other hand, probably see it all quite differently - we know they have a low estimation of Americans' ability to dismiss the ravings of fringe political ideologues, so they presumably see him as more dangerous than we do. Moreover, LaRouche has always reserved his nastiest rhetoric for... wait for it...
that's right, the English! So they have double the reason to view him and his supporters from a highly negative perspective.
I should add that this is on top of the various things LaRouche has actually written over the years. Folks like the Chipster and Dennis King have shown that you can quote enough of that stuff to put together a quite-damning website or two. Of course, if you don't
cherry-pick to some degree, it doesn't work so good - nobody's going to slog through literally thousands of pages of self-congratulatory analysis detailing the devastating effect of the Romantic Movement and the "Venetian School" on European culture which left the masses with an insufficient appreciation for Beethoven, Schiller, and Plato, just in order to get to the "good part" about how the Rothschilds and Felix Rohatyn ultimately laid the groundwork for Nazi Germany.
So really, you can't fault Selina for opposing LaRouche - after all, everybody
opposes LaRouche, except for a handful of conspiracy nuts. But because she's English, I guess she might not realize that he's not worth getting all that worked up over...?
But don't people who oppose LaRouche claim that when he talks about the English or British, what he really means is Jews
? I thought that allegations of antisemitism play a major part in criticism of LaRouche.
