LaRouche Campaign Issues Leaflet:

Oct. 4, 2003 (EIRNS)—The LaRouche in 2004 Presidential campaign committee today issued a leaflet, whose content appears below, for mass circulation in California's Recall election fight.

The Return of the Beast

Hitler Triumph of the Pill

"I admired Hitler... because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power. And I admire him for being such a good public speaker and for his way of getting to the people and so on...

"We can't live without authority. Because I feel that a certain amount of people who were meant to do this and control; and larger amount, like 95% of the people, who we have to tell what to do and how to keep order. That is why I am all for it... I feel if you want to create a strong nation and a strong country you cannot let everybody be an individual, because everybody has his own opinions and you can't just stick together as a strong nation. Then you have to tell people what to do and you can't just let them float away. In Germany there was a lot of unity. The German soldiers were the best, and with the police force and everything...

"America.... There is one thing I don't like here and that people go on their own little trips too much. The unity isn't there anymore. And I don't think it's too much the people's fault. I think it's because we don't have a strong leader here...

"To speak to maybe 50,000 people at one time and have them cheer, or like Hitler in the Nuremberg Stadium, and have all those people scream at you and just being in total agreement with whatever you say."

—Arnold Schwarzenegger,
from 1977 transcript of interview with George Butler

"Schwarzenegger didn't shy away from controversial views. He often got into heated battles with Rick Wayne—a black bodybuilder from St. Lucia, a Caribbean island—about one of the most emotional issues of the 1970s: racial secregation in South Africa. Wayne said Schwarzenegger defended the apartheid system and argued that white South Africans could not turn power over to black South Africans without ruining the nation. `At the time, I just thought he was an out-and-out racist,' Wayne said in a recent interview."

San Jose Mercury News, Aug. 24, 2003

"Arnold is a true definition of a Nietzschean `man of will.' Arnold saw himself and sees himself as a superman, as a man superior to other beings."

—David Wyles, line producer of Pumping Iron,
in interview with
New York Times, Oct. 4, 2003.

Read the above quotes, study the photographs carefully, and ask yourself: Is Arnold Schwarzenegger the kind of man you wish to see in the Governor's mansion in Sacramento in these times of crisis? Didn't we all learn the lessons of Hitler's Holocaust? Beyond his familial ties to the Nazi Party (his father, Gustav, was a member of the Nazi Party in his native Austria and served in Hitler's Sturmabteilung, the notorious Brownshirts), Schwarzenegger, like Hitler before him, is the kind of "Beast-man" personality who is tapped, in a time of great crisis, to intimidate a population into submission, out of terror, to the most murderous policies.

As Lyndon LaRouche, the tenth Democratic Party Presidential candidate in the 2004 elections, said, a Hitler does not start a movement; powerful financier forces create a movement of the enraged and desperate, and then look around for the "Beast-man" personality, to impose upon the mob. Schwarzenegger, like Hitler before him, was a less than nothing, trained as a freak out of a Wagnerian opera—the "Terminator Man." As the above quotes suggest, once on stage, the "Beast-man," Arnie, will play his part by instinct. Just as Nazi Finance Minister Hjalmar Schacht and Bank of England head Montagu Norman selected and bankrolled Hitler's rise to power, today, Schwarzenegger is backed by leading banking circles, typified by his energy pirate and speculator-partner, Warren Buffett.

In January and February 1933, the German Social Democrats made the fatal mistake of underestimating Hitler. They assumed he would be a passing fad, removed from power in a few short months. Then came the Reichstag Fire, and the Hitler-Nazi dictatorship, the concentration camps, World War II.

LaRouche warns: Do not underestimate the consequences, for California, for the United States, and for the world, if "Beast-man" Arnold Schwarzenegger is unleashed.

Turn out on Oct. 7. Mobilize your family, your friends, your neighbors to defeat the recall. California doesn't need "Exterminator Man!"
