MARMORA – With posters of President Obama sporting a Hitler mustache and another calling for the defeat of the British-Saudi empire, two supporters of the LaRouche Political Action Committee drew some attention Outside the Marmora post office on Friday, March 15.

Matt Guice of Ridgefield Park said the organization has been out all over the country pushing for support of a Congressional banking reform bill. Guice said the group wants backing from Republican U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, who represents South Jersey.

The proposed bill would prevent banks from being affiliated with investment companies or involved in the stock market, among other reforms.

But what drew more attention were large posters calling for Obama’s impeachment, showing the president with a mustache similar to Adolph Hitler’s. Other signs stated “Impeach Obama, Stop Here,” and “Stop World War III.”

Some passers-by spoke with the two men, including a local man who wants to become a social studies teacher. A common theme is that America is in crisis, and falling behind in the world.

Drone strikes, especially strikes against American citizens, were cited as a central reason for calling for Obama’s ouster. Literature distributed by the group called them “extrajudicial murder.”

Guice cited Sen. Rand Paul’s recent filibuster as a watershed event.

“The filibuster broke the Teflon,” he said. “It’s no longer about party. It’s about patriots.”

At one point, a state trooper parked nearby, keeping an eye on things. She later asked for Guice’s name, and drove away.

LaRouch PAC bears the name of Lydon LaRouche, a controversial American activist and repeated presidential candidate. He was jailed in 1988 on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and tax code violations, and paroled in 1994.

He is usually described as a fringe figure, and often associated with conspiracy theories. Material distributed on Friday focused on financial issues, including a call to reinstate the National Bank, creation of a national credit system and a high technology employment program.
