No, the poster of Obama-Santa-with-a-Hitler-Mustache wasn't a sign of the end of the world on Friday, it was just a call to impeach the President and prevent World War III.
Volunteers working with LaRouchePAC, a political action group that promotes Lyndon LaRouche and his ideas, took up residence in front of Santee's Post Office Friday, gaining the attention of thousands of motorists on Mission Gorge Road and the bustling holiday mailing activity.
Two volunteers spent hours at their portable cart speaking with many curious pedestrians, sharing pamphlets and displaying signs with messages such as: "Obama Loves Al Queda" and "Stop World War III- Impeach Obama Now!"
Santeeans young and old stopped by the booth to discuss politics and many car horns honked as they drove by, along with a fair number of disapproving glances from passing cars. The booth offered no tangible way to impeach Obama- no petition to sign or anything like that, but passers by could sign up to financially support LaRouchePAC.
Lyndon LaRouche, the leader of this political movement, is a well known fringe political figure that has run for President eight times, and is difficult to classify in the usual left-right political spectrum. The PAC has been described as a "cult of personality," and is known for its devoted following. The two volunteers in Santee had worked with the movement for more than 12 years each.
Ideas promoted by the PAC range from ousting Obama for colluding with Al Queda in Syria and Libya, "How Andrew Jackson destroyed the United States," to advocating the development of major economic infrastructure projects.
According to their website:
"Lyndon LaRouche and LaRouchePAC are what stand between you and an otherwise inevitable collapse of civilization..."
"It is now undeniable; as the euro continues its free fall amidst increasing ungovernability, threatening to pull the entire world economy down with it, the threat of thermonuclear warfare, sparked by the tinder box of the Middle East with a crazed puppet Obama, blazes stronger everyday."
