LaRouche troll movement of AOC town hall shines spotlight on fringe group who believes that climate change is a mass murder plot and that the British queen controls drug trafficking
- Fringe group Lyndon LaRouche PAC took responsibility for the stunt
- Woman shouted & # 39; we should eat baby & # 39; s in response to climate change
- Group has a long history of esoteric political theories dating back to 1960
- Believes that climate change is a mass murder and Queen is a drug trader
After claiming responsibility for a political stunt at a meeting of the Town Hall for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the obscure LaRouche movement is in the spotlight.
The group, which supports President Donald Trump, said the Ocasio-Cortez with the public factory had rolled & # 39; & # 39; during her town hall meeting in Queens on Thursday evening.
The unknown woman shouted: & We will not be here long because of the climate crisis! We only have a few months left! … I think your next campaign slogan should be this, we should start eating babies & # 39; s! & # 39;
The LaRouche movement is a political group that promotes the late Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas, which dates from the sixties of radical Marxist student groups, but which has evolved to embrace exotic conspiracy theories.

The LaRouch movement is seen by some as a marginal political cult and is considered by the Heritage Foundation & # 39; one of the strangest political groups in American history & # 39; mentioned.
Lyndon LaRouche himself was convicted in 1988 of conviction for fraud for fundraising, which his supporters are convinced was a politically motivated prosecution. He died in February 2019 at the age of 96.
Over the decades, the LaRouche movement has developed a complex and esoteric political vision that calls for a reform of the global financial system and the building of a land bridge between Alaska and Russia.
& # 39; The LaRouchies are pretty exotic, & # 39; tweeted Matthew Sweet, author of a book about the group, Operation Chaos.

& # 39; They believe the queen controls drug trafficking. They think Prince Philip wants to start WW3. They think Bertrand Russell used the Beatles as part of a secret British psy war against the US. To use a technical term, they are crazy, & he went on.
The LaRouch movement published one article in 1997 with the argument that there is evidence that & # 39; labeling Queen Elizabeth II as one of & # 39; the world's leading drug traffickers justifies & # 39 ;.
More recently, LaRouche movement activists have rejected the idea of man-made climate change and have insisted that reducing carbon emissions is a & # 39; mass murder policy designed by Wall Street and the city of London & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The result will not be sufficient electricity supply for both developing and developed countries, increased global infant mortality, shorter lifespan and depopulation, the group said in a recent missive.

& # 39; The LaRouchies have been enemies of the green movement for decades. They always wore signs with the text & # 39; Feed Jane Fonda to the whales & # 39 ;. It is linked to their conspiracy theory about & # 39; green fascism & # 39; from the queen, & # 39; wrote Sweet.
Sweet noted that the LaRouche movement was once a fairly ordinary Marxist movement and claimed that Bernie Sanders had once subscribed to their literature.
Today, the LaRouch movement is sometimes described as neo-fascist, and Sweet writes that she & # 39; now strong Trump supporters & # 39; are, but & # 39; not politically classifiable & # 39 ;.
