LAROUCHE, LYNDON HERMYLE

(born 1922)

U.S. former Quaker and former far-left activist who shifted to the far Right in the 1970s and attracted a following through his writing, speaking, and propagandistic activities. His movement generally operates under front groups such as Food for Peace and the Schiller Institute, and it publishes journals like the New Federalist and the Executive Intelligence Review. LaRouche is associated in particular with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories— in which the British royal family often plays a leading role—and he has developed an extensive intelligence- gathering service. The LaRouchite ideology contains elements of populist antielitism and hostility to a range of targets, including the Left in general, environmentalism, feminism, homosexuality, and organized labor. LaRouchites have called for a dictatorship led by a “humanist” elite.
