Re: Camejo Speaks Truth To Confusion at NU

Props for this coverage of a Green event, which I would have otherwise missed. Larouchians are definitely wackos. So are the hawkers of Socialist Worker. When I was at the DNC protests (drinking alcohol and handing out Haters Mag) I deigned to condescend to a few Larouchians and to the SW People.

Larouchians are like a cross between born agains, Ford-nazis, Scientology, and the math department. It takes a certain degree of intelligence to be that dumb. This degree of intelligence I mention is good for using them in debates or as an engine of self promotion. I am sure Lyndon does.

I have come very close to getting the Socialist Worker people to take a swing at me. I tell them things like "there is no place for the judeo-slavic philosophy of socialism in the USA". When they ask me to prove that, I give them a rundown of the Federalist Papers, and the 1950s et al. Usually they get so mad the turn red (no pun intended) and begin leaning in like they want to give a blow. They usually chicken out, feel put down, like they were forced to take another college course prerequisite, and then they walk away.

It is useful to learn how to use these people, since they are always taking up space at other peoples' events. While it is amusing to shove them out of a room by force, this is not a meeting of the Pan Africanists where we can beat up house negroes. It is the 21st century.
