Felix & Fascism

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Frankly, if you do not think of Felix Rohatyn as a fascist, you do him a grave injustice. Both Felix and the wildly libelous attacks on me which have surfaced in the aftermath of the Senate confirmation of the Supreme Court appointment of Justice Samuel Alito, put the essence of filthy Felix on today's global display. By all rational standards, Felix is a fascist who considers me a prominent threat to his currently larcenous schemes.

So, in keeping with Felix's fears on that account, the Alito confirmation has been followed by an accumulation of various lunatic libels recently featured against me in prominent mass media and comparable other locations, not only in a bankers' Boston, Massachusetts, but also in a featured hoax published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, in prominent Leipzig, Germany pro-fascist and related circles, in a leading France radio station, and other relevant places.

As noted by one person close to me, what is intended by those outlets as attempted defamation of me, relies heavily on the precedent set by the notebooks of E.T.A. Hoffmann and the archives of Charenton.

Felix's credentials as a fascist are clearly established. The best-known career connections of that sort, are traced from his association with the U.S.A. extension of Lazard Frères of the Hitler period's Banque Worms operations. Felix is notable from the history of the 1970s for his role in "Big MAC," but also has a much uglier prominence as a key banker in the operation backed by such as George P. Shultz and Henry Kissinger which brought the neo-Nazi General Augusto Pinochet to power in Chile, and unleashed the neo-Nazi mass-murder campaign in the Americas' Southern Cone during the first half of the 1970s. He is also a key ally of Vice-President Cheney in the scheme for transferring the power of the U.S. military from the control of constitutional government, to a system of private armies, of Cheney's Halliburton, et al., modeled upon Adolf Hitler's program for replacement of the German Wehrmacht by the Nazi SS.

In short, fascist Felix is a Synarchist, by expressed faith and by practice, a specimen cast in the tradition of dictator Mussolini's and Adolf Hitler's bankers of the 1920s and 1930s. He is not merely typical of the traditional practices of that collection of Synarchist scoundrels who brought Mussolini, Hitler, Franco, and their like to power during 1922-1945; he is, as the legacy of Banque Worms attests, fully witting of the evil he does....
