More on the Warwick story-
I mentioned that I had a long conversation with a guy named Ryan who came out to ward off the ACORNs who were marching toward City Hall in legions lured by the prospect of a box lunch.
I told him I wasn’t sure that rumor was true, but he said he got the email direct from ACORN.
The event’s first controversy began a full day before Langevin took the stage when The Rhode Island Young Republicans issued a statement blasting an e-mail from the local Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now for encouraging supporters of the health-care plan to block protesters from attending Langevin’s meeting.
The problem: ACORN says it never planned on attending the meeting and never issued an e-mail to supporters.
My impression generally is that the opponents of reform outdid the supporters in zeal and organization, sadly. But some of the hollering crowd were from a galaxy far, far away– that is Planet Larouche.
Members of a group affiliated with frequent presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche handed out flyers showing President Obama in a Hitler-style mustache.
To my friends on the Republican side, if you don’t know who Lyndon Larouche is and what he stands for, Google him quick. You may not want him to represent your cause.
