The Alito Fight: LaRouche Says ‘No’ to Germany 1933-34  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

Lyndon LaRouche issued a statement on Jan. 25, demanding that Senate Democrats rise to the historic occasion and filibuster to defeat the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court, on the ground that Alito is a Nazi who promotes the judicial outlook of Hitler’s “Crown Jurist,” Carl Schmitt. “To repeat the mistake of Germany in January-February 1933,” LaRouche wrote, “is to take on oneself the guilt for those who were tortured and murdered so mercilessly by the forces of the Hitler whom the relevant leading private bankers brought to power then, and would do the like again today.”
