It almost made up for running into the LaRouche volunteers --again-- outside my post office. They have some nerve, putting up a table in the heart of WeHo. What worries me more, though, is how little people seem to be aware of who they are. That their homophobic, anti-Semitic, racist propaganda could be disseminated in the heart of gay-and-Jewish West Hollywood is more a commentary on the apathy of the community. Karen Ocamb has an excellent piece in the new issue of IN Magazine where she talks about that very issue.
Those LaRouche volunteers --as well as the people taking their pamphlets-- may have little to no idea of what LaRouche has done. I tried to get one of the volunteers to say whether they were actually being paid, but he was cagey enough not to bite --and raise my suspicions that he can't claim complete ignorance about LaRouche's politics.
