The corporate media is doing another disservice to real socialists and communists by mislabeling Lyndon Larouche as a “communist” or “socialist,” as his followers attack and disrupt health care reform meetings. These activities add a new chapter to this group’s reactionary history, abetted by misrepresentation in the corporate media.
Larouche’s gang has stood outside “town hall” meetings holding pictures of Obama with a Hitler-style mustache and the words “I’ve changed.” The media have attempted to use Larouche’s behavior to attack the left. When covering the rightist attacks on health care proposals, several newspapers and television programs have identified Larouche’s followers and their despicable sign as “communist,” “socialist” and “leftist.” Such claims are a great falsehood and distortion of reality.
