Trending on twitter now. The world is down one conspiraloon. And good riddance to him.
RIP to a real one,'
Good riddance to the fascist piece of human shit. Please let David Icke be the next loon to cark it.
Guardian journo here. Is this a joke?
Is he dead or is it twitter bullshit.
one of the all-time greats, if by "greats" you mean barking bastards.

ho ho ho
surely 'a right one'
Why is it that so many loons think that Britain is still a big player on the global stage? It's not just LaRouchites.
It's kind of charming, in a way.
I see from his wiki page that his organization was the first to announce the October surprise allegations against Reagan (i.e. that R. had colluded with Khomeini to obstruct the early return of the US hostages in the Tehran embassy, so as to help him win the 1980 election).
IIRC, that one is seen as a bit more credible today than it might have been at first. Is it possible that he was working for the American spooks, who used him as a) a means of disseminating otherwise unavowable stories, and b) to queer the pitch of anyone who could be considered a "conspiraloon-by-association" if they said anything that might sound like a "Larouchism"?
And then there's his possible links to the assassination of Olaf Palme:
The LaRouche movement was an important part of the US operations against Olof Palme
The weaponisation of conspiracy theories and theorists is one of the more plausible conspiracy theories, ironically enough. Their obvious faults can be used in the pursuit of more banal ends in the right circumstances.
And I suspect that was what was going on in LLR's case. He doesn't have to have been the triggerman on Palme's killing in order to have helped muddy the waters.
Never heard of him, but that petition is a bit bonkers.
His kookie followers used to pass out literature all over the place and when I glanced at it the reaction was always. 'What is this BS? What planet are they on?' At one point they were frantically pushing Reagan's star wars missile defense system. World is better off without him.
LaRouche's "Operation Mop-Up"
Holy shit, RevLeft. Now there's a blast from the past.
This came up on the Workers' Girder thread, an account of an incident in which LLR got more than he bargained for:
