Lyndon LaRouche, 1922-2019

The ultimate American politician and conspiracist is dead—at least according to Twitter. It's hard to know where to begin, really. This video summarizes LaRouche's thoughts on Walter Mondale and is as good a place as any to start. The waters run deep and wide; I cannot but suspect Prince Philip is pleased to outlive him.
