LaRouche supporters protest in downtown Corsicana

Corsicana — Two supporters of Lyndon LaRouche, who was an ideologue and presidential candidate in previous decades, set up a protest station Monday at the Corsicana Post Office.

Tom O’Connell and Craig Holtzclaw spoke to passersby about the Glass-Steagall bill, impeaching President Barack Obama. Glass-Steagall would recreate the firewall between the investment banks and the local home-lending-type banks.

“The solution is not getting mad at Chase-Manhattan or getting mad at Obama,” explained a passionate Holtzclaw, a LaRouche PAC Organizer from Houston.

They want to see the end of bailouts, both for Wall Street and for other countries, Holtzclaw said.

Responses had been fairly positive, Holtzclaw said.

LaRouche is 91 now, and attracting a new generation of followers, young people like O’Connell, Holtzclaw said.

The group opposes bombing Syria, which they believe will lead to an international thermonuclear war between the U.S., Russia and China, and generally the end of the world.
