Media Continues Failing to Notice Obama=Hitler Posters Aren't Being Toted by Republicans

Mostly, I should say. Or at least we haven't seen Republicans carrying such signs.

Who are carrying them? The media likes to claim it's Republicans, conservatives, or those generally bitterly clinging to their health insurance.

The actual source of the poster? Followers of a cult that existed previously to Obama's -- Lyndon LaRouche's cult. And Lyndon LaRouche is a far-left-wing paranoid crank, and a registered, if atypical, Democrat of the conspiratorial populist type, as are many of (most of) his followers. Government and the corporations (and the Catholics and the Jews) are in a conspiracy to deny us a fair reapportionment of wealth, their Bilderberger blather goes.


I mention this because the poster turned up during Barney Frank's combative, condescending town hall performance. (Oh, also note that performance for Barney Frank's proudly brazen he wants the government option in order to usher in the single-payer scheme.)

Despite the fact the woman toting the sign specificially says "LaRouche has defeated" the death-panel/end-of-life-counseling-intereventions -- obviously a LaRouche follower if she is giving this goofball non-factor all the credit for the opposition's success -- the media will of course continue claiming this is a Republican phenomenon.

It's not. LaRouche is not really a member of either party -- they are all too conspiracy-minded and think everyone's in on the Big Lie, etc. -- but as a formal technical matter, he is a Democrat, and his cant, while extremist and anti-state and populist, is left-wing, not right-wing.
