Like It or Not, LaRouche Cultists Are Aligning With Conservatives on Health Care

The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack has another duplicitous blog post — he did the same thing last week — arguing that because the disturbed woman at Rep. Barney Frank’s (D-Mass.) town hall was a “LaRouche Democrat,” she doesn’t represent opposition to health care reform. It’s really beneath him, but he’s done it again.

No one disputes that LaRouchites are on the fringe — but it’s indisputable that they are fringe Democrats. They oppose Obamacare because they want a single-payer plan.

This is misleading. The LaRouche cultists oppose Obama’s plan because they think he’s trying to euthanize old people and the infirm. They oppose it for one of the reasons that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) oppose it, and they’re providing a lot of the “research” for this smear. Instead of grappling with this or rebutting the smear, McCormack smears Democrats, who have repeatedly purged these conspiracy theorists from their party.

McCormack again:

Just as it would be unfair to assume that all Think Progress readers are idiots who call conservatives Nazis just because a few commenters do, it’s a cheap trick to pretend that the few people who show up with Obama as Hitler signs are representative of the protesters.

This is gibberish. Conservatives are pointing to town hall protests as evidence that the country is turning against Democrats’ proposals for health care reform. It means something that deranged political activists are showing up to these rallies and mouthing some of the same rhetoric as conservatives.

If McCormack has a problem with “cheap tricks” in coverage of protesters, he has a problem with The Weekly Standard, which honed in on the fringe elements of liberal/anti-war protests of representative of everyone who opposed the war in Iraq.
