LaRouche's EIR (intelligence newsweekly) supports the old apartheid security forces and their schemes during the transition to majority rule (1994). Says the "destruction of South Africa" looms. Supports the maintenance of apartheid's "bantustans" (fake tribal homelands). Backs the Inkatha Freedom Party that had been armed by the old security forces against the African National Congress (ANC). Claims the ANC is controlled by the KGB (hello? the Soviet empire collapsed in 1991...) and raises the spectre of "Pol Pot-style democracy."
Following the article is an interview with Maj. Gen. Tienie Groenewald--a former head of the apartheid regime's military intelligence and, as of 1994, a leader of the Afrikaner Volksfront (a white separatist coalition). Groenewald says, "We are very close to a shooting match." He also says--regarding the ANC's takeover of the infamous Bophuthatswana bantustan (in the wake of an abortive coup there by neo-Nazis affiliated with Groenewald's Volksfront)--that it is "the greatest travesty of justice I have seen in my life."
Groenewald would later be indicted for his alleged involvement in sponsoring Inkatha Party death squads (a plot that resulted in the mass murder of women, children and a priest in Natal), but the charges were dropped for lack of sufficient evidence. Note that the interviewer alludes to previous contacts between the LaRouche organization and Groenewald ("In the past, when we have discussed this [the threat of majority rule] before...").
Here we apparently see the same LaRouchian pattern as in Spain, Guatemala and Mexico--get close to angry far-rightists in or around the official security services and egg on their violent propensities.
LaRouche's EIR weekly supports apartheid regime military strikes against the African National Congress (1986). Claims the ANC is part of a Soviet plot to take over Africa; calls the ANC's tactics "barbaric"; slams the international anti-apartheid movement for "legitimizing terror."
LaRouche's followers disrupt a Catholic bishops' press conference against apartheid (1984). According to the National Catholic Reporter, "shouting by self-described journalists who work with fringe politician Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.--whom the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has referred to as a 'small-time Hitler'--then broke up the press conference and prevented questioning by genuine reporters."
LaRouche and South Africa's Bureau of State Security (BOSS). The LaRouche movement "waged a persistent campaign in 1977-79 to win friends in the white minority government and ruling party of South Africa." The effort intersected with "Muldergate" (a covert influence-buying and propaganda operation controlled by BOSS and financed by a $74 million slush fund). LaRouche was praised in a BOSS-controlled magazine while his aides sponsored a conference to promote investment in South Africa and also prepared intelligence reports profiling anti-apartheid groups in the United States and overseas.
How LaRouche prepared intelligence reports for the apatheid regime's leaders. These document praised several apartheid leaders as great "humanists" and claimed they were being targeted by an "anti-progress" plot (the anti-apartheid movement) financed by Jewish investment houses such as Loeb Rhoades, Lazard Bros., Lehman Bros., Kuhn Loeb, and Goldman Sachs under the leadership of Baron Guy de Rothschild. One report also concocted an update of the blood libel, claiming that the international Jewish cabal had brainwashed a group of Black insurgents into "cannibalizing a white nun." Article also describes how the LaRouchians attempted to reach out to Nico Diederichs, South Africa's ceremonial State President from 1975-78, who had been the founder of the South African Bureau of Racial Affairs in 1948 and a Nazi collaborator during World War Two. [Diederichs died in office before LaRouche could hit him up for a senior citizen "loan."--DK]
LaRouche's Fusion Energy Foundation announces a conference (1978) to promote economic development in South Africa. This event was clearly aimed at countering the anti-apartheid movement's campaign to stop U.S. corporate investment in the apartheid economy.
LaRouche's weekly newspaper hails South African Prime Minister John Vorster's Oct. 19, 1977 crackdown on "nearly every organization considered part of the country's 'black consciousness' movement." Quotes LaRouche as saying that the goal of the ANC and other resistance groups is "not to aid oppressed blacks, but to dupe blacks into aiding in the imposition of World Bank policies..." Slams the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus chairman, Rep. Parren Mitchell (D.-Md.), who had called for the Carter administration to take a stronger stance against the crackdown. The author of this article, David Cherry, served at the time in the Africa file of LaRouche’s intelligence apparatus and is still a LaRouche follower today; indeed, he is listed as one of three authors (along with LaRouche) of the April 12, 2008 Daily Briefing that included LaRouche’s Obama-is-a-monkey rant.
