LYM: BURN THE BOOKS!
"We don't believe in textbooks. We don't believe what the press says. We don't believe what everybody says is true: We know it's wrong. If everybody says it's true, it has to be wrong! If the neighbors say it, and agreeit's wrong!" (1)
Two years after the above statement, "Lyndon LaRouche addressed a group of young people from all over Europe at a weekend meeting in Wiesbaden, Germany on May 31, 2003" where he gave this speech.
His LYM called afterwards to "Burn the Textbooks" at the occasion of a so-called European Cadre School held near LaRouches' European HQ in Wiesbaden, Germany (May 31- June 1, 2003)...
At the same time (May 31, 2003) this LaRouche "pedagogical festival" took place, there were numerous commemorations throughout Germany of the 70th anniversary of the Nazi "bonfires" of books.
These bonfires were organized by the Nazi S.A. and University students from the "Hitler Youth Movement".
Was this the way the "LaRouche Youth Movement" chose to "commemorate" these events, or is this just an unfortunate coincidence?
Moreover, this LYM event took place only two months after British and Jewish student Jeremiah Duggan was found dead on March 27 near LaRouches' European HQ in Wiesbaden, Germany invited at a March 21-23, 2003 ICLC/LYM conference in Wiesbaden.
Now, March 23 might mark the celebration of Ronald Reagan's SDI TV announcement in 1983 (which LaRouche claims to be "his"), but this LYM event took place in Germany, not in the USA.
The fact is that March 23 in Germany marks the date of a more sinister event: the day Nazi Germany's Reichstag passed the Enabling Act in 1933, affording Hitler total dictatorial powers... The Nazi bonfires were then a celebration of Hitler's seizure of absolute power.
The author of this "Burn the Books" article, Jason Ross was one of Jeremiah's "recruiters."
"Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings."
By Heinrich Heine (17971856), a German Jewish writer, from his play Almansor (1821)
