LaRouche on Zionism:
"Zionism is the state of collective psychosis through which London manipulates most of international Jewry."
"Zionism Is Not Judaism" Editorial, The Campaigner, December 1978
LaRouche on Israelis:
"Can one punish sheep for being sheep? The Israelis have behaved with monstrous, worse-than-Nazi bestiality. But are not sheep bestial? Are not the Israelis behaving with the bestiality of terrified sheep, driven to homicidal psychosis by their won bestial fears? What can be done with such bestial Israelis, except to transform them from bestial sheep, to take them out of the kibbutz sheep-pens of psychosis, and employ the method of the Platonic dialogue to transform them into genuine men and women of reason?"
"Despite What Israel Has Done" Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., The Campaigner, March 1978
New York, NY (June 28, 2011) -- Lyndon LaRouche, the ultra-right cult leader and convicted felon who poses as a "Democrat," has shown his bigotry once again--this time on the June 8th LPAC Weekly Report, a webcast sponsored by the LaRouche Political Action Committee.
At the end of the program, LaRouche suddenly asked, "Where does a chimpanzee go to vote in the U.S. elections?" Hoefle, apparently already knowing the answer, replied "I think it's the White House." LaRouche was then shown beaming and chortling. The video clip is available, along with commentary from LaRouche critics, at www.lyndonlarouchewatch.org/larouche-chimpanzees-white-house.htm
President Obama, obviously a target of the slur along with African-American voters who support him, has frequently been the object of far worse comments by LaRouche. For instance, in April 2008, LaRouche told his followers: "You'll find Obama's ancestry, if you chase the family tree, everybody's climbing and swinging from the branches there....Every monkey in every tree, from every part of the world, has participated in the sexual act of producing him."
LaRouche's rhetoric was at its most sinister in early 2010, when right-wing anger and hysteria regarding the President had reached a high point and some Tea Partiers were threatening violence against Democrats. On January 30, 2010, LaRouche gave a webcast speech claiming that Americans were thinking about lynching Obama. LaRouche suggested that they were moving in the right direction--that it was time to "take out Obama." LaRouche also stated that the President was good only for "kindling"--a comment that, in the context of the lynching remark, appeared to refer to how racist mobs burned black men at the stake, or burned their lynched corpses, during the Jim Crow era. www.lyndonlarouchewatch.org/larouche-obama-2010.pdf
LaRouche's racism dates back at least to the early 1970s when his followers engaged in numerous violent clashes with black nationalists and circulated racially charged leaflets and pamphlets.
Between 1977 and 1994, LaRouche and his organization supported the South African apartheid regime by way of numerous propaganda efforts. According to an investigative series in The New York Times (Oct. 7-8, 1979), they also "produced private intelligence reports on anti-apartheid groups in the United States for the Bureau of State Security of South Africa."
LaRouche hired the Grand Dragon of the Pennsylvania Ku Klux Klan as his security advisor in the early 1980s. In 1987, the advisor, Roy Frankhouser (now deceased), was convicted in federal court of obstructing justice on LaRouche's behalf after LaRouche came under FBI investigation for massive nationwide credit card and loan fraud. LaRouche and Frankhouser both ended up serving time in federal prison as a result of those investigations and the subsequent trials.

LaRouche associates himself with what he characterizes as the Platonic current in physical science. He writes of Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa's work, De Docta Ignorantia, that it "became the keystone of a series of scientific papers on which the principal line of progress of modern, and also viable European science depended: that best typified by the work of Cusa himself, Luca Pacioli, Leonardo da Vinci, Johannes Kepler, Pierre de Fermat, Gottfried Leibniz, Carl F. Gauss, and Bernhard Riemann."
According to an official biographical sketch, LaRouche "rejects the empiricist, cartesian, and positivist notions of both 'objective science,' and the separation of science from art." He has made attacks on Sir Isaac Newton, alleging that he and his associates plagiarized Kepler's discovery of universal gravitation and arrived at an inferior version, as is illustrated by the Three Body Problem, although neither version gives a general solution. He also asserts that Newton's version of the Calculus is inferior to that of Leibniz. (see also Leibniz and Newton calculus controversy.) LaRouche has called Newton a "half-witted hoaxster and specialist in witchcraft." (see Isaac Newton's occult studies.)
