Transcript OCAL COLOR FACTS & RUMORS Lyndon LaRouche rides again, Sissy's back in town and mushrooms are a fickle fungus BY MORRIS EDELSON PHOTOGRAPHS BY DAVID CROSSLEY ■ POLITICS BehindFusion, currently being distributed at the Houston International Airjam, there lies a long, bizarre tale. First of all, the "Fusion Energy Foundation" publishing the slick mag is using the kiosk space free, as can anyone on a first-come, first served basis, except the flowered shaved heads or leechy nuts. Secondly, the FEF is the latest incarnation of the Truth as seen byLyndon LaRouche aka Lynn Marcus, aka II Duce of the Brown Shirts of the Left, exposed long ago by Counterspy magazine as being in the pay of the US security agencies. The LaRouche group, besides running this crazy old man for president, also was formed to attack every existing left of center organization in the US. LaRouche's group first appeared as a dissident Students for Democratic Society faction, supporting white-dominated teachers' unions in New York City. This group, the Labor Committee, was tossed out of the SDS, which didn't usually bother with such hassles. Then LaRouche's label became the National Council of Labor Committees. Nick Lick, as it was known, staged violent attacks on populist and leftist groups in the north and east, mopping up the last radicals trying to make a transition from anti-Vietnam War protests to general domestic movements. In Madison, Wisconsin, NCLC attempted to burn down the headquarters of the Wisconsin Alliance, an ACORN-like group, and tried to isolate and persecute its leaders by distributing red-baiting and merely insulting literature about them. "Neo-Nazi slime-suckers" was his epithet for some schoolteachers who tried to organize for better wages in Wisconsin. As the left in America began to evaporate, LaRouche, who would run for president and get an inordinate sum of money and television attention every time, turned his attention to the anti- nuclear groups. Suddenly, fusion energy became the only hope of the West; no- growth, environmental and anti-nuke groups were agents of Communism on some days, reactionary hippies on others. Now, titled Fusion Energy Foundation, LaRouche's group is adopting their insulting and holier-than-thou rhetoric to today's needs (as perceived by the right wing money that funds FEF): the production of bumper stickers and posters which read "Don't Let Jane Fonda Pull Down Your Plants", "Warning: I Don't Brake for Liberals", and "More People Have Died in Ted Kennedy's Car than in Nuclear Power Plants". Fusion magazine is only the latest, slickest, in a long line of LaRouche-toned publications, all of them combining snob appeal and sic-the- dogs-on-'em political views. There was Executive Intelligence, openly advertised for "top management", and even a little weekly called Interview, which used to have classical music-and-wine benefits for itself in the Midwest. The FEF people so far in Houston have restricted themselves to a little preliminary contact-making at the airport, a few semi-private political receptions at a modest suite of rooms in the Warwick, and some intelligence-gathering on the Mockingbird Alliance and the PIRG groups here. LaRouche hopes to play a role in the acceptance of the South Texas Nuclear Project, More innocuous is the series of films supposedly being sponsored by the downtown library .Actually, a group called Free Enterprise is using the facilities^ free, to show Uncle Miltie Freedman do his Adam Smith vaudeville routines. In addition to the eight-week series of films, a discussion leader will be on hand to lead any doubters to the prayer tent. Miltie's thesis is that the law of the jungle is actually most humane, since Darwinian social scientists have told us that poor people are a doomed, draggy bunch. No one would have even bothered with a Free Enterprise Foundation if more and more people weren't beginning to doubt that 19th century industrial capitalism may not, after all, save the planet.
