Figures. NY Times Says Crazy 7 Time Dem Presidential Candidate Is a Right-Winger
Lyndon LaRouche supporters were out this past weekend at the failed Day of Rage protests in New York City. They brought their Obama-Hitler signs with them.
Funny how the media ignored these offensive signs at the far left rally, huh? Especailly after they made such a fuss out these same protesters at the tea party rallies.
The New York Times did however mention that the LaRouche protesters made an appearance. But, the Times claimed LaRouche was a right-winger – despite the fact that he ran for president seven times as a democrat .
The City Room reported:
Throughout the afternoon hundreds of demonstrators gathered in parks and plazas in Lower Manhattan. They held teach-ins, engaged in discussion and debate and waved signs with messages like “Democracy Not Corporatization” or “Revoke Corporate Personhood.”
Organizers said the rally was meant to be diverse, and not all of the participants were on the left. Followers of the right-wing figure Lyndon LaRouche formed a choir near Bowling Green and sang “The Star Spangled Banner” and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Nearby, anarchists carried sleeping bags and tents.
At one point in the early afternoon, dozens of protesters marched around the famous bronze bull on lower Broadway. Among them was Dave Woessner, 31, a student at Harvard Divinity School.
“When you idealize financial markets as salvific you embrace the idea that profit is all that matters,” he said.
A few minutes later about 15 people briefly sat down on a sidewalk on Broadway, leaning against a metal barricade that blocked access to Wall Street. For a moment things grew tense as officers converged and a police chief shoved a newspaper photographer from behind.
After a police lieutenant used a megaphone to tell those sitting on the sidewalk that they were subject to arrest the protesters got up and marched south.
Obviously, they’ll do anything to pin these kooks on the right-wing.
